Sigh...another cover given over to digital breasts. I don't think they realize that a Darwinian on the cover would attract WAY more attention than another generic big-breasted female avatar. That picture has no personality, no artistic flare...just boobs. If games sold stricly based on breast-content then wouldn't Guild Wars pretty much own the MMO Market? They have by FAR the best looking female avatars.

I'm sure it wasn't JUST the breasts though...to be fair I'm sure that Age of Conan also spent eleventy billion dollars in advertising to steal that cover. I'm not sure what all the fuss is about, though. It's just another MMO that won't come close to touching WoW's market share. In fact when Warhammer comes out, these two are going to be slugging it out for the increasingly small percentage of non-WoW-playing MMO gamers. I predict epic fail for at least one of them.

I didn't "forget." I simply didn't want to. Too much work.

And yes, that exact same thing was used by you against me in one of my first polls. :P

EDIT: Yes, aimed at xander.

I do like the way, as currently depicted, she looks like some sort of unique Holy Grail among Darwinians. Foreseen backstory to Multiwinia: The cleavage that launched 1000 armours?

This makes me think, are all Darwinians male?

They're asexual. Hell, they don't even reproduce!

Didn't Dave2 make some Goatsewinians (and a Trunkportse) not long after Darwinia came out?
