Nice, from everything shown so far about Global Agenda, Hi-Rez is a studio with cojones. Respect.

Frankly, I'm offended.
where do they get off portraying women as not so scantily clad? It goes against all videogame reality.

This will start a fetish craze off for armored women.

You know I am the type that don't mind either way.
As long as it makes sense.

I understand the argument of protection but some need to realize, and this is something not implemented in any MMO so far that I know, that there are several other factors to consider. Off the top of my head: mobility, location are very important.

Try moving around in a full suit of armor, you are not going to be faster than a person in leather or cloth, that is a fact (unless you are in a Sci-fi game like the one picture above that is). So while full armor will, hopefully, protect you from projectiles and most thrusts it can be a hindrance in close combat. the longer the combat goes the worse it will get.

Things get worse or better depending on the location. In the tropics full armor would be murder, not so in frigid areas (if the insides are well insulated).

It never makes sense to me to see heavily armored people lounging about in supposedly high heat, humid environments as seeing bikini-armor clad maidens prancing around a Tundra. Unless you are a fairy or your armor has Acme's Enviro-control enchant, it is just as bad.

Say it with me.... "Power"..... thats right "Armor"...

Power Armor in fiction can be used to undermine/debunk the notion of the limited practicality of armor in any/all situations should you choose so through your games aesthetic. We can all easily imagine how this "power" armor can even go as far as making you Faster, Stronger, Quicker, AND more durable. in sci-fi (more common), its techno based, in fantasy (less common), its magic based.

The character design is ugly. If you want to make a realistic feel, at least have good design, or remove gender entirely from the armor. Non-exploitative doesn't mean ugly.

No matter how good it is, and no matter their good decision with the female clothing, I just don't think I'll ever play it.

And the only reason is the art. I don't like the direction of the super futuristic armors.

Still the best female armor design in all of gaming!

Oh thank god, an MMORPG (or is this a shooter?) where women aren't running around in those skimpy clothes. I wasn't even planning to play this,and now I'm tempted.

Some of the other games aren't so bad. In Guild Wars some of the clothing for women has them mostly covered.
