[Aesthetics] Viking and Oracle

MVP - SEA
Posts: 309
I was just wondering. After watching the CGI Intro Cinematic for Heart of the Swarm, I had a new-found appreciation for Vikings. Why? Because they looked damn awesome in the video.

Here's the thing though, in-game, the Viking doesn't give the same impression, so to speak. IMO, it seems "fatter" or thicker than was shown in the video, especially during flight mode (where it looked like more of a fighter).

Anyway, my feedback is that maybe it's possible to have the Viking re-skinned or something? Not replace the whole skin, but just make it as cool as it looked in fighter-form in the cinematic.

Same goes for the Oracle; it looks really cool up close, but looks too bulbous from a top-ish POV.

Cinematic and in-game graphics are not the same. Sadly, games (or computers) are not quite there yet. Maybe one day ;)

Haha. I know. :(

Though I just really wish the in-game Viking wasn't so "fat".

What settings do you play your game on? It might make them look a bit different. Other then that, the designers are going to have to make it less plump themselves, which I doubt they would want to take the time to do.

Aside from that, what does the ANZ mean next to your MVP title?

Yes! All of my Yes. It would also be awsome if the new skin did a flip when it transformed. I would buy the expansion just for that.
