Butt Animations Have Gone Too Far

Butt Animations Have Gone Too Far

Those playing through WildStar, the new science-fiction MMO by Carbine Studios, might've noticed something a little, err, lively about the way certain character's butts sway.

Spotted this weekend by game critic Rowan Kaiser, it seems the walking animations for the Mordesh (which are space zombies in WildStar) are quite the thing to behold:

Here's a closer look by Fluffy Meowington, which also includes some other walking animations for comparison's sake (namely, that of the Granok, Mordesh and human.) You might want to turn the volume down for this one, since the accompanying song isn't so great:

Female Mordesh aren't the only ones with a lot of sway, but not every character has such extreme butt animations either.

I can't decide if I'd find this distracting while playing or not. And hey, maybe that's sort of the point: some players like to talk about how, if they're going to be staring at someone's butt for countless hours, it might as well be a nice view. WildStar seems to take that idea to heart, though the result is almost silly — kind of like the breasts in Ryse.

    Urgh, now it's going to be real hard to find Meryl.

      Well played sir, well played.

    She's no Bayonetta.

    Or Vanessa Z Schneider.

    Butt Patricia!!!

    I am sorry, but if you are being distracted by your character's butt, you need to leave the level -15 zones as you have too much time on your hands. Post 20 not paying attention in combat is just asking for the obnoxious respawn voice.

    That's a race of zombie cyborgs in the top pic, like that's gonna leave you with a natural gait.

    I don't mind. If I'm going to spend 400+ hours staring at an animated butt, it might as well be all sexyjiggly an stuff.

    Stupid sexy Flanders.

    I dunno, looks normal to me. Maybe my wife just has swingy hips, but those animations look more realistic to me than in other games.

      Agreed some women have sway in their walk, i dont think its out of place at all.

    I'm totally down with this. Is it supposed to be bad?

    With measurements like 32-10-64 I'm not sure an exaggerated sway is the biggest issue there...

    Did someone say "I like big butts and I cannot lie"? No? ok.

    I like big butts and I cannot lie!

    Sooo.... basicaly WildStar stole the butt physics from Scarlet Blade? xD

    Sooo, not all female characters sway like that. Only some. In the same way that in reality some people walk like that. This is such a non-issue that not even Patricia dared to give definite shape to any argument, just a "leaving this here, hopefully it will stir some tasty traffic-building flaming."

      That seems to be her raison d'etre these days.

    I'm worried this writer doesn't understand their own ignorance or ironic lack of empathy.
