\'Johnson\' character bio for Restricted Area
\'Johnson\' character bio for Restricted Area [ Game -> Preview ]

IGN have a new character bio from the post-apocalyptic Diablo-clone, Restricted Area. It's for someone called Johnson, and apparently, "subtlety isn't a word in Johnson's dictionary."

Johnson is a hitman for hire but don't expect him to be the strong, silent type. Subtlety isn't a word in his dictionary. He prefers to wield lumbering weapons that his enemies can see from a mile awhile. No worry though, they'll be dead a split second later.


Johnson has a preference for big shiny things with devastating firepower. This doesn't limit him to just firearms. He loves flamethrowers and heavy bruising-type weapons as well. His first love is the shotgun, but he'll be able to use machineguns, pistols, flamethrowers and a whole host of weapons for his destructive deeds.


Johnson doesn't believe in that new-wave Psi-Ability, so he relies on his strength to get him to the finish line. For this reason, the bulk of his abilities focus on improving upon his weapon proficiency. As he levels up, he will be able to put points towards the weapons that are already in his arsenal. More points will provide more damage and more devastation than that which already exists.
Essentially, he's a big, dumb tank. I wish game developers put more thought into their characters. Is it really that hard to break the stereotypes in RPGs? Even just making the tank female would be a start.
