FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4.

Does Vindictus Need A More

Posted on Wednesday, April 27 @ 05:06:37 Eastern by


This is less of a criticism and more of a commentary. In Vindictus, a popular action-based MMO by Nexon America, fans have complained that the three characters players can choose from - two women and a dual-wielding male named Lann who looks imposing in armor but much less so without - are not masculine enough. This, I learned, from Nexon America at a meeting yesterday.

In response, Nexon America has created a fourth character named Karok, a rugged, dark-skinned brawler who shifts his weight, grapples ogres, and swings a giant stick to whack his enemies. His towering size easily handles most beasts in close quarters, knocked around in devastating combo after devastating combo. He's the kind that rips apart spirits with his bare hands.

It's an unusual but not a far-fetched request for Nexon America to accept. If there are enough people clamoring for a more masculine character, it makes financial sense to make one available - they're adding content, not taking anything away. But what if people wanted a more feminine character - would they comply to that? What if a substantial number of people wanted a furry? (You know who you people are...)

Check out the trailer for Karok below and see what you think.
