Age of Booty Avatar Support? Or New Avatar Clothing?

Alan Pettit

On March 25th there will be some sort of avatar and Age of Booty related goings on. In a simple blog post by Capcom's Daryl Allison, there was only the message "March 25th, 2009 marks the spot" and the image below. What exactly will be at that spot only time will tell. Hopefully it will be some pirate-themed clothing to promote their game, but perhaps only avatar support for the game itself. Although, you'd think if it were clothing they might have the avatar in the image actually wearing said clothing... What do you think?

  • jizz...simply
  • Doesn't look different
  • NICE
  • um who cares?
  • well at least if this happens, maybe other games will have avatar clothing as well but the thought of having pirate clothing is still kinda lame
  • the trousers are ok, but dont like the shirt
  • I think it might be avatar support for age of booty myself, If they did have pirate clothing they should show it off, also of it does im gonna buy
  • So we've gone from hordes of people thinking they're unique by making a Joker avatar and now we'll have the same with Jack Sparrow wannabes? Personally, I want to be One-Eyed Willy :D
  • I would be thinking Avatar support. Avatar clothing would make me lul a little. I may have to try pirate clothing!
  • I want my Master Chief Avatar Armor. Where is it? Come on? You know they have some made some where... Even a Halo themed shirt would be better than everything they have. They need to start having avatar clothing tagged with gaming achievements.
  • i kinda hate avatars, but this sounds ok....
  • ???
  • Sounds interesting.
  • Avatars are butt pirate already, now they can look it.
  • I'm pretty sure it will be Avatar support for the game. But who cares if it does? If Avatars weren't ever created on the 360, then there would be no need for the before mentioned Avatar report.
  • The clothes that the avatar are wearing AREN'T the pirate clothes. Read the news story and learn something, people.
  • At #10. pretty good idea about the master cheif armour but cog armour in gears would look awesome!
  • at #6 those clothes already exsist, they were released with the nxe, not new, this sounds aweful
  • I would like a Dead Space Tank outfit for my Avatar please.
  • I'll take pirate gear any day.
  • I hope you get the option to add scurvy to your avatar....
  • Who doesn't want to terrorize keflings as a giant pirate? This looks promising.
  • Hopefully one can become a pirate with their avatar with pirate like clothing, cause pirates are awesome.
  • it doesnt matter the avator moves like a fag, i wish they never came up with it
  • I think giving the OPTION to use avatars in games is cool, but forcing the usage is not. From what I hear, there are several games that actually force you to use your avatar... Does MS feel the need to copy the Wii and Miis that badly?
  • Man, most of the clothes already suck. Why make it worse?
  • get me some cris redfield clothing for getting 1000/1000 in RE5
  • still lame, should have game related clothes or accessories.
  • they should give you the option to make it "M" Rated give us some better clothes and props like guns, wheelchairs, old people walkers, canes, anything they can think of. Hopefully it will evolve into that because right now the avatars are pretty freaking lame IMO.
  • Yeah some pirate clothing. Probably just avatar support for Age of Booty.Balls!
  • Im just glad theyre supporting the game-its one of the best XBLA games out there and my personal favorite and im glad to see it getting some love finally.
  • if i says age of booty it mite mean pirates but maybe its not only clothes it mite be that you could pick a avatar that looks like a pirate like one wit a patch over his eye or a guy wit a peg leg or even a bird on a shoulder
  • chris redfield? whos that lol gimme the rpd outfit for the win, still... pirates = gay
  • first we get brokeback cowboy clothes now we can dress up like butt pirates. PASS.
  • YES PLEASE! xD i love that game
  • Very gay
  • @6 hey dumb ass those arnt the clothes!!! those close have been there since the beginning
  • yawn,,,
  • @ #25- They didn't come up with it, they stole it from the Wii. Just like they stole the new dashboard look from the PS3.
  • do realize that this probably is clothing because its on the second wednesday from the previous clothing. but still blah.
  • Who cares? As a gamer I think I'll be spending more time playing games rather than worrying about how my Xbox 360 avatar looks. Isn't that what gaming use to be about?
  • Woo? I guess.
  • @#15 clearly there wouldn't be an avatar report if avatars were never created. The report was put in place because of the creation of the avatars.
  • We should feel lucky, this is way more options than Home gives it's users and we don't have to pay 49-99 cents for fucking clothes.
  • So looking at the screenshots for the game I can't see one situation where any kind of a humanoid 3d model is displayed... Which, IMO, makes it pretty apparent that it's all about clothing. Yay!
  • #41 Ur so damn right
  • There is definatly going to be avatar pirate clothing according to this website... http://www.oxm.co.uk/article.php?id=9044
  • rofl at #3
  • oOo sounds kool
  • it would be good to get some pirate clothing but chances are its going to just put your avatar in the main menu or summit.
  • yea probably another in game avatar thing again, like bomberman and uno.
  • the title of this post should have been "Age of Booty Avatar Support? Or New Avatar Booty?"
  • I want a set of T-51 power armor for mine. pirates suck post apocalyptic vault escapies = AWESOME!
  • age of booty is so fun
  • i want a VP costume :P link achievements to avatars thats what i say, or even GS the more GS the more clothes
  • I'm personally hoping that with the release of big games there will be avatar clothing to advertise the said game. I'd love to dress up as Marcus Pheonix or good 'ol Master Chief!
  • wtf is age of booty? and who gives a crap. come out with clothes for a worthwhile game
  • yeah, i say make a better avata clothes than that.. Come out with ideas for cooler clothes than that..
  • The only thing that I can recognize is the new glasses. Come out with like re5, gow, or some cod clothing. I've never heard of this AGE OF BOOTY before ever in my life.
  • the glasses aren't new dude
  • the avatar's clothes doesn't look new to me :)
  • @ #56 u complete tard first, that would b ok, having gaming clothes, but u should atleast know that its marcus FENIX if you have played gears at all and @ #61 and for everyone else who is a complete idiot - THEY ARE NOT THE PIRATE CLOTHES!
  • Pirate clothing would be AWESOME!!!
  • @ 39 they may have copied it from the wii by using it for their console but the lead designer or whatever from RARE pretty much invented the whole avatar thing. dont really care about pirate clothing but at least its there for people who do. i would like to see some guns or armor or something. thats the only problem with NXE, it's like microsoft want xbox to become a childish/family console. we were here first!!
  • lol at Marcus Phoenix- it like he tried to misspell it.
  • There Is Actually No Fucking Point In Fucking Avatars...Aargh
  • Having Said That, I Would LIke To Dress Up As A Dildo.
  • I'm more interested in the possibilties of unlocking clothes through achievements. Any update on the rumours?
  • #41, it only takes a minute.
  • @41 100% agreed.
  • #66 i don't fuck avatars, i dunno about you
  • I think it is just going to be avatar support in the game. Nothing on the page hints at clothing.
  • The official Age of Booty web site (http://certainaffinity.com/ageofbooty/) states that it will be an update to include Avatar support in the game. There is no mention anywhere of pirate clothing for Avatars.
