Wildstar New Faction - The Dominion
Cartoonish sci-fi RPG has just introduced its new playable faction, the ubiquitous sci-fi trope, the all-encompassing dictatorial empire known as the Dominion. Released by Carbine Studios was a video introducing the faction, showcasing different elements and races involved with it - again, the name of the video draws uncomfortable comparisons between it and Team Fortress 2, some say maybe a bit too much inspiration is drawn from the hugely successful marketing campaign of the latter... doesn't take away from the fact that it's a brilliant video that causes me to tingle with both delight and anticipation.
On the other hand, another class was also revealed, the Stalker class - basically sci-fi rogues/assassins who utilize skills and equipment to lay down their foes. Released was a video showcasing the features of the class, and the aesthetics involved - all of which again are incredibly pleasing. I think so far what Wildstar truly shows is that cartoonish graphics still work in the current generation, in order to make visuals look not just fun, but also beautiful.
