    I'm going for a Male aurin (which I have no idea what it is going to look like), however has anyone noticed they look a lot like final fantasy's Vera, only much better because they have a tail now :).

    The only similarity I see is the bunny ears. Aurins will have all kind of ears, but what those will be we don't know yet.

    I always go with the slim manly look with all my MMO characters, maybe a beard and a scar here and there but I dont like the steroid infused 8 feet tall freaks.I welcome diversity and I want to see all sorts of races ingame though, playable or not.

    Furthermore, I'm ok with fluffy alien bunnies, will I ever play one ... yeah, not really.

    I think Carbine are appealing to the biggest audience here and having lived in quite a few different countries I can see the relevance of that. Different cultures view the characters quite differently and so they will appeal to some Im sure. Fortunately the cartoonish appearance brings everything back to a fantasy environment so its prefectly fine with me, hey who doesnt want to see Jessica Rabbit in the game ? Betty Boop, Wilma or .......maybe I just revealed way too much about my personality (Mental note: get out more and socialise):)

    Aurins are nice plus it's not the ugliest race I have ever seen so I have no complaint.
    Personally I don't see why some people would be disturbed by that. They make the game feel warmer in a sense. We are all grown ups (okay maybe not all of us still) playing a game. You can be CEO, Teacher, Soldier......when you playing you are just a big kid having fun, and kids like cute thing lol. (gender in relation to the race you choose is not an issue IMO more of a preference than a factor : "I am a male" >>okay glad you are XD " I play only big male toon" is your preference , many male players end up playing female character because they look...nicer than their counterpart. That being said I haven't yet chose my race in Wild Star might take Aurins or might not.

    Aurin, ESPer, Scientist. My choice has been cemented for a while now. Just waiting for Beta to roll her.

    My friend found WildStar before I did, and actually clued me in by mentioning the 'alien bunny girls' before the path system. He is/was more interested in GW2 (But still keeps an eye on W*) Since that first 'oh hey bunnies in a MMO, interesting...' I started hearing about everything else, and getting more and more drawn in to 'rabid fanboy' mode. (Much more than I was about WoW, which so far has been the only other MMO I've gone into 'rabid fanboy' mode over.)

    The 3rd person thing is the one that usually brings about guys playing a character that is easy on the eye. In first person style games, I think most play something more brutish.

    I'm starting to gravitate towards an Aurin Spellslinger Scientist, if such a combination is possible. I expect I will change my mind a lot as more information becomes available, I usually do with class choices in MMOs.

    There is some truth in that, but not everyone will follow that pattern of choice. Personally i know i do, though i'd rather look at a masculine character.

    Well done Snufler for bringing this post alive again, reminded me of the ESA latest stats on gaming trends and that female players are a fast accelerating component of video games. Females are a huge number in the equation and as 'most' devs are guys that should be accounted for.

    So getting back to the OP if females want purple hair and such, us guys should accomodate that in our 'traditional' thinking that all the girls need to look like Amazonian Goddess's. Animal styled toony characters are likely a fun transition for all ages from Disney characters they are already familiar with. Hey and who can deny being in love with Squirrel Girl at some time in their life ? ....right ?....

    Cause if they put that yellow PikkerChew thing in here Im gonna freak and buy an ingame minigun on day 1 :mad:

    I have no problem with bunny people although I think they are not to be trusted... Why you might ask? Because for the most part females will play them. Since it will be mostly females, and females are cray cray, they are not to be trust... Also who knows some guys might pretend to be chicks which adds to the fact that they should not be trusted... :p

    Also no matter what happens to a game some people will always complain about a minor insignificant detail. Even if it does not hinder their game play at all. People were born to complain. :)

    I play almost strictly female characters, unless there are male options that amuse me. Like a body type 4 Chiss Powertech in SWTOR. My names are never misguiding though. If you assume I'm a female when my name is Arnold, you have issues, not me!
