This post is all about the pretty people found in fighting games. What a strange, unexpected theme. [QUOTE] [URL=http://www.siliconera.com/2015/09/22/capcom-confirms-that-theyve-been-making-cammy-and-chun-li-look-cuter/]Cuter[/URL]? Does that mean [URL=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvzyYQ1FL_g#t=40s]moe[/URL]? [/QUOTE] I'm not surprised that Capcom is still fiddling with the character models, especially since Cammy didn't look finished in her debut footage. One comment I see again and again in Capcom art books is that the illustrators always worry about how the female character art turns out since they know those pictures will receive closer scrutiny. The people working on the games probably feel the same pressure. Oh well, as long as Chun-Li doesn't go back to being hunched over and breathing through her mouth like her SF2 sprite I'm certain the XX chromosome characters will look fine. Speaking of girls, I was surprised by how much I liked DoA5:LR since it was a game I picked up on a lark. LR is, to be fair, back to straddling that line between silly and sleazy that DoA has often danced along. Vanilla DoA5 tried to reign things in to such a degree that Bayman's neon beret was no longer his default outfit. LR ditches any hint of respectability and goes straight for the bunny outfits. But in spite -or, perhaps, because- of that go-for-it attitude it also feels quite energetic. A good chunk of the cast are either teleporting or flying through the air during fights which is a nice change of pace for a 3D fighter. It's the sort of game where a character as silly as Nyotengu can be featured and even gain a following. I don't know if DoA5 will ever be the tournament worthy title the developers have hoped for but it's certainly fun in its own way. As for CFJ, it was a game that always felt like it wasn't terrible but needed something to get it up to the next level. It felt like there were decent ideas at the core of CFJ that didn't fully come together. Or were all those good ideas lifted from the games that the character sprites originally came from? I don't know, but I do wish there had been a sequel with an actual budget since something interesting might have been patched together. At least the developers of CFJ knew that sex sells and gave poster boy Zangief a new head.
