# 1 Animations in this game...
02-15-2013, 03:38 PM
I didn't bother to search if anyone complained about this before but I suppose no one did.

When the hell will you guys make some better animations for this game?

This game has the absolutely worst and most horrifying animations I have seen in my entire life. Those simple hand waving and nodding gestures are EMBARRASSING.

I was just showing this game yesterday to my friend, I play STO since F2P launch and have spent well over 200 euros on it.

So I show the game to my friend and he wants to see some of the campaign as he called it. So I open up a random episode and there is a cutscene. I am embarrassed by the poor design and animations and my friend starts laughing and asking if this game is pre-Morrowind.

He had a bloody point. When will these be improved?
I had to endure these animations when we beamed over to New Romulus for the first time and had to watch that guy do those same gestures you see EVERY OTHER NPC do throughout the game.
Please do something about this!

The snowball making hand animation and the point of death always crack me up. Then there is those comical expressions you get in dialogue windows. I admit it all looks rather poor.

Reminds me of the games on the PS1.

Ah, the memories. =3

Then again, look at the awesome animations on the Neverwinter banner, top stuff there.

Given the budget and time it took to make STO, we are fortunate to get animations.

Yeah, we need better animations. The ones we have now are comically exaggerated and best, and utterly nonsensical at worst.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

On the other hand we do get eight or nine really awesome dance moves. (still waiting for /e dance_break to start me spinning on my back though...)

And yet no Party Rock Anthem nor Gangnam Style dances.

I've heard they're making a new grind animation. It'll have a big holographic wheel with you chained to it, and a bullwhip soundbite attached. It will be epic.

The game isn't Korean thus we can skip the Gangnam style.

Gerry Anderson puppets were better animated!
