Is it just my imagination, or does Bartz have cleavage in his character portrait?

And he's supposed to be a guy...

Those are his amazing, sweet lady-killing pecs. I've more partial to the way Amano draws monsters, armor and clothing, but I think his ability to draw humans is mostly miss.

Also, yeah, those sprites look awful. It's probably the stiff arms. Making them somewhat proportional is cool, but those arms make them look very lifeless.

EDIT: The more I look at that pic, the more awful it looks. LOOK AT HIS FUCKING NECK JESUS CHRIST WHY IS IT AN HOURGLASS SHAPE AND TEN INCHES LONG and then his head is put on lopsided so he can awkwardly look at the person viewing the picture because Amano is horrible at drawing profiles. Then apparently Bartz has a tentacle for a left hand that extends off the drawing.

That's average for the HD versions.

I might pick this up seeing as I've never played X-2. Might be interesting to play them back to back.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

So I thought this would be fun to share.
Dunno how many HAVE seen it already.

This is the Japanese "laughing scene".

...it's like he's screaming in small doses.

EDIT: Screen Comparison.  THis is actually pretty impressive.  Wakka's outfit change quite nicely.

I think that scene is bad no matter what language it's in.

$40 was the expected price.

Dunno if I'll get this though, I'm way more interested in Lightning Returns if only because I'm already so invested in that series.

I think that scene is bad no matter what language it's in.

The Japanese one is worse because Tidus is "laughing" like a crow there.

Maybe the idea behind the scene was decent but they recorded the damn thing and now we have generations of fans still talking about it after all these years. It was good publicity for the game in the end, so that's something I guess.

I do wonder if there's any info about that scene in a Ultimania book.

I am the only person that the laughing scene didn't bother a single bit? It made perfect sense given its context. In fact, it making you uncomfortable because it sounds so forced and awkward also makes perfect sense given its context. Without the internet telling me the scene is an abomination, I don't think I would have ever given it a second thought.

That screenshot comparison has me salivating. I cannot WAIT for this.

Looks like I don't need to eat my hat!  That game sooner than I expected, honestly.

I actually agree.  I didn't think twice about the scene back when I actually played the game.  I mean, it's supposed to be awkward.  Of course when you take it out of context it looks pretty awful...

Same. It's hilarious out of context, but it's supposed to be goofy and awkward. Or terrifying, if it's the JP version. JAT gets an unnecessary amount of hate for that scene.

Also, I'll definitely pick up the Vita versions of this. I have relatively little interest in being tied to my TV with a JRPG like FFX these days, but on the Vita it would be absolutely perfect.

EDIT

Wait a minute. Those screenshot comparisons aren't between the PS2 and HD versions. They're between an emulator and the HD version, and in that regard, the HD version fails hard. What?

http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/14641

Is that maybe an error in identifying which is which? Because the one that is supposedly an emulator is running in widescreen and stuff. It must be an error.

They're mislabeled. The one labelled emulator has much better textures and the details look different which wouldn't happen with an HD emulated version of the original.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. WHEW. In that case, great work, Square Enix. Looks like they didn't just twiddle their thumbs in the interim.
