Why would they say they're not going to do that, only to turn around and do exactly that? That doesn't make any sense.
I’m literally running around in super pink tight short shorts and a weird ass tank top because the stats are better than tactical gear.the problem is that, most good stats are on stupid looking outfits. And why not give bonus stat for having full set ? so set looks good and also gives some special ability or skill or major stat boost for lookin cool not GOOFY.
Or just a option to put some clothing articles in a "costume" slot so it shows that one. I really dig the original V Stuff, but it's not really that strong, even with its scalingUnfortunately far to many developers think stats/skill bonuses need to be tied to clothing which leads to players NOT having their character look like they want but using whatever item those bonuses are on (and usually looking like clowns).
There NEEDS to be an appearance swap option where you can move the stats for one item of clothing to another.
The Gamestar Review criticized this strongly. If you go for the stats V looks ridiculous quite often apparently.
