PostSubject: Armour Skins   Wed Jan 29, 2014 11:11 pm

What were everyones feelings on the armour skins?

I feel that most of them were a bit tacky.

I also didn't like the fact that it restricted the addition of new characters.

Would you like to see them return in the next Gears game?

No, i don't wanna see them in the new gears, mainly because this was the reason locusts were deleted from the game. (this and balancing issues)

I loved the armour skins at first, especially my pink one.

That was until I kept being called the pink power ranger. I stuck out like a sore thumb which isn't great when certain people *cough CommanderSkimpy cough* kept hunting me down  Chainsaw so no wouldn't be bothered if they didn't have them now. lol!

Interesting premise....not so good in execution.

Not really concerned either way....as long as I get a new Gears game, I'm good!  Very Happy

I would rather them not be included. I felt they removed WAY too much to make way for the skins.

I saw a similar thread like this in the EPIC forums.

The people on the forums pretty much said that armour skins are nice, 'some' of them said that the problem is it limited the character roster that the game could have potentially had, like Clayton and other additions. The fact that the armour skins prevented many things, like the character roster and the locust being in MP, due to the trying of armour skins since the locust characters weren't compatible with them, if I remember correctly.

In my personal opinion, I'm ok with armour skins, but they do a lot more bad than good, so to speak.

They do change how a character looks, some of my favourites being CEL shaded, zombie, bacon, and made the character look awesome, but does add to the game a lot of negatives for me, which made the new addition to the game not that so appealing. The character roster shrunk quite a lot, and that was including the the locust because of their incompatibility. Limiting the characters to choose from was bad, as all I played was Cole (Judgement) and Cole (Aftermath) and sometimes played Loomis, whereas in Gears 3, I'd play Thrashball/Superstar Cole etc. giving me more choice.

I really dislike the skins. I'm happy without them. I did buy the pink one as a kind of support to a fellow GzB member. I feel I'm a Gear not a dress up Barbie.

Perhaps I'm the odd man out, but customization is so limited in several games these days, that if you can't be your own avatar, customizing the look of what the player you choose has to suffice. I enjoyed the skin packs since it made it more fun team wise to see your brothers in arms ostentatiously clad in bright lightning blue or magma pants while you ran around as human bacon. Tacky, absolutely, but where can you add fun in an otherwise "grind till you level up" fashion.

As mentioned by a few other players, having the customizations in campaign would have been wicked to see while also having the additional players (Marcus, Alex etc) having been side quest DLC like the gears 3 added mission that is unlocked during play.

Sometimes it isn't about functionality, but rather what it adds to the game for the sake of fun. And yes, it does kind of suck when you're a neon sign running around in PvP that says "hey shoot me, I glow like the sun."

Still fun to watch.

I wasn't a big fan of the armour to be fair I love the weapon skins especially in gears 3 cause the flame skins are my bread and butter and I don't mind someone going get him the one with the glowing Gnasher it makes it all sweeter when I out bounce them in a shotty showdown but I agree with most of you the armour was too much
