This week on the Brave Room, Wan and Kit talk skins- small in-game items to let you customize your characters the way you want them to look.
With the revelation that Pokemon Unite is charging 40 USD for a skin for one of its characters, the gang explores the economy behind skins by comparing the prices across various gacha games.
After all, what even is the point of skins? Of course, there’s some games where cosmetic upgrades are practically necessary- looking identical to someone else in an MMO is practically a social death sentence, and you wouldn’t want that.
It’s not just mobile games, either- Wan has opinions about skins in Fighting Games, and Kit reminds everyone that some characters have skins so popular they overtake the character’s default design. Here’s looking at you, White Day Arthur.
The Brave Room is GamerBraves’ own podcast, hosted by “Wan” Amirul and Kit “White Day Arthur is the best” Chew. It’s available on Anchor, YouTube and Spotify.
