I can't remember the last time TGS was this awesome. I heard that Metal Gear fashion show announced that you can now just buy Big Boss' robot hand.

I feel like the same could be said of most of the men too in Final Fantasy as of late. Holy fuck so many of the designs in FFXIII were just awful.

In general. And Nomura is noteworthy for how much passion he puts into his projects, and pushes hardcore for them to happen. Not to mention him having actual control over his shit. I mean KH3 is fucking happening after 10 years, despite dwindling interest and sales, and it looks incredible. You can't say that about many visionaries like Kojima and Keiji Inafune, who were used and exploited, having their influence on their creations ripped away from them. Or even in America with people like Tim Schafer, struggling to hold onto a career.

>190291
It's so weird how his character designs fluctuate between amazing and god-awful. X and XIII were terrible (VII wasn't all that great either, but it's still better than those and it was his first job anyway) but this and VIII are great.

Are you sure you pay attention to the industry because aside of Inafune losing Megaman you're totally wrong about these. Double Fine has only been growing (they're a fucking PUBLISHER now) and Kojima basically runs Konami. He continues to make Metal Gear just to fund the other weird shit he does.

It fucking shows. Nice seeing people dressed in actual clothes.
It does make the game more *grounded* but at the same time, in that same sense of groundedness, it does feel more Japanese.
Like, the characters in the game and unmistakeably Japanese.
Personally, I feel that's a good thing! Identity is a good thing to have. But I can understand if that view varies from person to person.

While the faces and most of the designs look pretty great the hair on most of them is atrocious. Nomura's spikey bishie hair designs look OK when it's still rendered in 2D or stylized 3D like Kingdom Hearts/Crisis Core, hell it was sort of OK even for Advent Children. But for a realistic 3D style, you just end up with the technicolor kooshball afros everyoone had in Final Fantasy XIII.

It's good that there is something apparently being worked on after all of this time, JRPG boy band roadtrip simulator or not, but SE has been pushing this game up to 9 years in development before they're starting to decide to even show that there actually is a Versus 13/15. And fuck trying to make the demo part of a $59.99 preorder deal for a lack-luster PSP game being sold as a PS4 title. You could have at least bundled it with Agito.

At least the lady Cid is cool.

I am amazed at how basic the combat is honestly, like I see what it's going for but it's a million light years behind everything else doing it, like there is much more here than there is in Tales of Symphonia, just a bizarre stealth system, running out of magic causing a status effect and the teleport sword.

Also I've never seen a game plant it's feet SO FIRMLY in the Uncanny Valley, everything about the characters makes your brain scream "THIS IS WRONG, THIS DOESN'T LOOK RIGHT."

Maybe its because I'm finally getting on the MonHun train but man, its really clear how the series has started to lay its prints in the industry. First Metal Gear with PW and now the MH jokes I felt were totally appropriate. For a moment there I did think he was gonna carve up the creatures he killed!

>193895
>Also I've never seen a game plant it's feet SO FIRMLY in the Uncanny Valley, everything about the characters makes your brain scream "THIS IS WRONG, THIS DOESN'T LOOK RIGHT."
It actually looks really good, I think. There's a degree of stylization that fits in just right (the hair is the big standout for saying "hey, brain? this aint real, take it easy for a while, I got this.")

The one issue I've got is the english lip syncing. It looks really fake and overdone, but hopefully it can be filed under "growing pains".

>193896
>they're just poorly dressed
They're the best dressed JRPG characters in history. so yeah, their outfits suck

Actually no, I really like the main character's outfit. Its clearly for a certain body type and skin tone so it'd never fit me, but the shirt and trouser cuts are actually what's being worn casually today in european and asian cities. And I really like the colour accents on the boot treads.
