SoEmote

Post by Lebrasier » 08/07/12

For those of you who are curious about SoEmote...

Image

ImageImage

"LOOOOOOOL"

Image

I didn't even have to pull that much of a dorky face to make this happen, and I found that sometimes even when I keep my face straight, Nikolei looked like he'd been taking something strong.

The verdict? Great if your toon is meant to be a bit "simple". Otherwise, it's just too hard to keep your character looking sober.

Anyone else got any dorky pictures of their toon in SoEmote?

wasted development time is wasted.

ever sense Smokejumper joined,this game has been downhill and now imo on a very sharp downward spiral. They need to figure out that this isnt friggin Gaia or any of those other games. EQ2 was once for subs only..and an MMO

As others will undoubtedly point out, SoE didn't even develop this and only paid for licensing and the use of it. It is also being "beta tested" (I use the term loosely because we all know how seriously SoE takes their beta testing) for EQNext.

That being said, if this is a key feature of the future EQNext, it looks like I won't be playing. I'd rather play a game with substance, not this fluff garbage they are pushing on us.

I thought perhaps SoEmote would be better on a non-soga model. I thought wrong...

Image

Poor Nikolei must've been terrified at the sight of his own warped, disfigured face.

Image

I kept a straight face, and Nikolei's face very gradually began to turn into this. I considered the possibility that I might've been suffering a stroke, but one look in the mirror assured me that this was not the case.

There are no words...

This.

Holy crap this is hilarious.

Terrible. But hilarious. I hope they decide to dump the idea after they see the outcome. But at least we'll get a few laughs out of it, right?

I could only get some normal faces on my Iksar. Lizard faces are a lost more fixed and not as prone to derp-outs.

You can't do so much with an Iksar's face. Here are two unique expressions though...

Blue? Huh. I will have to change how I color them.

Need more people to contribute to the thread or I'm going to just assume that Nikolai is ESPECIALLY weird looking offline... :]

Korean horror movie, anyone?

She doesn't like it when you stare at her right eye...


And to give you an idea of "the face I'm using"... here's a picture of me when I DO look a bit odd...

Darn... no more speculation as to the model based on glitch faces!

That barbarian (or is it a dwarf?) dude is doing quite the war cry. Effectively scares me, at least!

I'll let someone else do those. Others should submit some; the webcam I'm using might play a role in making it easier to make a toon look hilarious.

I think we now know why the video that first showed us SOEmote in action used a Froglok.

On the plus side, it might be very entertaining watching patrons at the Nutshell tomorrow.

That's exactly what happens for me, the constant jittering of the lips like my toon is going "b-b-b-b-b-buuuhh-b-b-b-b-bu-b-b-b-buuuuh"
