Wildstar released details of their latest race, the Chua. The Chua are a short, psychopathic, technologically-inclined race.
This seems to be a little bit of a trend in MMOs lately. WoW had the Goblins, Guild Wars 2 had the Asura, and now Wildstar comes up with the Chua.
I confess that I don't really understand the appeal of these races. They just come across as caricatures, with no nuance, depth, or grace.
These races seem to be an MMO-only phenomenon. I don't recall seeing anything similar in single-player games, books or movies. An odd coincidence, don't you think?
Frankly, the Chua have given me a bit of a distaste for Wildstar. I strongly hope that Wildstar doesn't overuse the Chua, thinking that they are "cool".
