Wow some of these comments are really sexist. I'm female and don't really mind not having a female avatar/character but some of these comments don't have anything to do with the game or what is going on. The game isn't historically accurate so to use this as and excuse is mute. However Artemis was the leader of the Amazonian Women a tribe or nation of entirely female warriors ( yep still greek mythology). So even if you go this route they had them.......
For the posts that says that Athena is somehow is disgraced ( odd that you even have a comment about Medusa's power's and appear to know a little of mythology to say a certain god/goddess sucked) .... Please brush up on your mythology and see how Medusa came to be. She pretty much did the disgracing herself.
As for cost and animation work....really there isn't much that needs to be done ,only to make the figure all the animation is done......
My name is not Lucas and if we are going by what happened to everyone are the Spartans still in power/ around? I said Athena did the disgracing herself and gave the example....... look it up. Drag has nothing to do with a female character and this is a sexist and offensive comment . Someone has an idea and this is a beta forum for the game not trash talk central. An appropriate level of discussion should be allowed by anyone without attacks to gender or race. Please don't assume you know a person from their profile as you are clearly wrong.
Also all the grammar and word correcting shows intolerance to those whos first language isn't English. This is in English forum and many play and are trying to better the game that aren't from English speaking countries but wish to participate in improvement of the game.
how about this why cant we play us a black guy hello rome had blacks in it and no they where not slaves and spartans where haft black and white they where not full black everyone and there mom know this spartans use to be more of a warrior race so they use to merry whit who ever had more skills in combat not base on race base on combat skills
so give us black color or tan color skin warriors and we be game
I'd actually like to see a female warrior, but I wouldn't care too much if it wasn't included in the final game. The 5th god might be Athena so who knows maybe Female warriors will make their way in to the game come release.
PS. It's good to see some of the old posters still here like GodModeGod and FreshRevenge. I remember coming in here every day and having discussions about a trailer or screenshots or analyzing the crap out of little things before GOW3.
Why do people bring up historical facts? No one cares. Customization (gender, armour colour, muscle, skin tone etc) would only help this game. There's no reason to be against it. Being a bald guy with the same appearance is dull, hopefully this idea was for the beta specifically and that they expand on the retail version.
This is in reply to all of GodModeGOD's posts:
Why are you so ****ing annoying. Stop being such a pompous **bleep**. You're so ignorant that you can't even fathom the fact that other peoples opinions might be more preferred than your own. Next time you want to give your opinion, try to be a little more open minded and not such an insufferable know-it-all. Thanks.
