And from Pachislots to mobile hell goes the Castlevania series.

At the very least, it looks like they sprung for either Kojima or a clone of her to update the character art.

Additionally, A) Rex is wearing a diving suit all the time (considering that its meant for deep cloud diving, whatever that means) it probably doesn't breath very well or something, and thus running around with it half open makes at least some sense, and B) he's not the only character in the game/setting to wear a diving suit (hell they stick Nia in one during a HtH). That said, he is the only one to sport a blue bomber diving suit (who here complained about Megaman Volnutt/Trigger's appearance in the Megaman Legend games?), and between that and the fact that the world is covered in endless water vapor, led me to start calling him Megaman Rex.

Spoiler: show
(Well that, and the fact that he does change his outfit to a silvery, neon-highlighted, spacefuture, diving suit that looks far more ridiculous than his original duds after receiving his most broken powerup kinda led me to seeing MMX parallels.)


There's not a whole lot of defending I'm willing to do for Homura though.

Pyra is the worst character design I have seen in ages, and Rex is the second worst.

come on now, they have to be at least second and third worst



I can tolerate a bit of fan service as long as they don't sound like blithering idiots (see: digimon cybersleuth). Kos-Mos was fan service-y. Rex and Pyra are likeable (so far on chapter 4) and Rex's outfit (from the waist up) kind of suits what he does.

Because my living skills students don't take the PARCC standardized tests but still have to come to school to make up snow days, we showed them the movie Coco today.  I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.  Sure the plot was predictable and the twist could be seen a mile away, but I liked the characters, pacing, and the colorful visual design.  I've always been fascinated by Mexico's Day of the Dead where you celebrate the lives of those departed, and the whole juxtaposition of a morbid skull festooned with flowers and vivid colors is one of those striking visual images that once seen, never leaves you.

What are you playing on, Frosty?  I played on PSP and it was just so darn tiny I could barely appreciate the beautiful sprites and animation work.

On my trusty PS3, same as when I played Suikoden 2. Both games look great, given their age, and the platform they are on.

Definitely agree about the design.  This game is gorgeous.  My jaw hit the floor when I first explored Goldpaw.  The amount of details put into that environment.  It's insane.

I read that the story has Japanese audio.  Pass.  If I can't have English voice acting, I want none at all.

You could probably turn the Voice volume slider all the way down, surely?

I always think I want to play this and then I see the character designs again...

Its not Suikoden 3 in that dept but other than Rex's hammer pants they are actually decent IMO.
Pyra is the worst character design I have seen in ages, and Rex is the second worst.
