    Okay, what's the issue? In fact, I prefer the first girl's design way more than the PS2 one.The jacket is way cooler than that ugly sweater.

    Blooper missed the point of the original artstyle. The characters are supposed to look sickly or haunted. IE gaunt, pale, and like they haven't slept in a long time.

    It also looks more combat oriented, but that may just be the trailer lying to trick new people into playing.

    One of the characters went from looking like a woman to looking like David Duchovny.
    What do you mean “Look off, how?”

    Oh I imagine because opinion on art style is objective and like the good doctor I don’t think any of these look off, I think they look much better.

    It's not a matter of if they look better or worse, it's a matter of if they look like the original characters or not. They look different enough for me to notice, that's what "they look off" means. As for Kain's comment about the clothing, I am assuming that he's simply never played the original.

    Especally when they are played by David Duchovny

    (This is a joke)

    The response to Angela is the same as the response to James’ face, when the remake was first revealed. No one said that guys don’t have faces that look like that. And in fact, they were scanning the face of the mocap/voice actor, so it was even based on a real person.

    But it didn’t look enough like James.
    Just like how Angela in this early footage doesn’t look like the Angela from the original.

    People want what they remember.

    Another great example is how the movies changed the shape of Pyramid Head’s helmet. I remember tons of complaints about that back then. And then the movie look carried over into newer games.

    But considering that the dev team has already responded to fan feedback & adjusted James’ face, and also how unfinished Angela looks, it wouldn’t surprise me if they adjust her face too.

    I've played the original, both the original version on the PS2 and the PS3 remastered version. No idea how that has anything to do with me liking the new Mary design better.

    Yeah, I don't know why he's so upset that I said that they looked off. I'm not attacking the looks of the characters, just saying that they look off from the originals.

    I’m going to blame YouTube & Twitter for this one. A quick look and it’s clear a lot of channels are latching onto this one as another clear sign that “the message” has destroyed another game/movie.
    Honestly, the rage is pretty overblown. It’s good that there’s plenty of feedback, & I do hope Bloober hears it & gives us something closer to her original look.

    That’s the thing I’ve noticed in the commentary about this too- everyone mentions how this is one of the pinnacles of the horror genre & it’s a masterpiece and how James & Pyramid Head & co. are iconic & so on.
    Then they wonder why people are so adamant that Bloober not mess with those characters and this game. People are loving the updated visuals and environments. But they want to see the characters as they knew them- just looking graphically better.

    Also- we’re talking about this on a website that freaks out over the size of Optimus Prime’s smokestacks. Just for perspective. :)

    The “issue” is how Rodimus said the newer images looked “off”
    And you asked “off, how?”
    I replied how that one chick now looks like Fox Mulder.

    And what you don’t seem to get is how replying that some ugly chicks look like Fox Mulder (and that you like some of the differences) you pretty much admit how “off” / differences the new are to the original.

    But are arguing as if it didn’t happen.
    All you have to say is “oh, I see what you mean.” Rather than double down on… we’ll, nothing.

    But I'm not arguing, I'm just trying to understand where you are coming from.

    I don't understand what differences you are referring to. Do you mean them wearing different outfits? Because that should have been a given like how RE2-RE4's remake changed the character's outfits.

    Saying a woman looks like Fox Mulder just makes it sound like you dont like it because she's not hot or something superficial like that.

    Is there a reason why you always respond with such hyper aggressive behavior when people mention YouTubeers and Twitter?

    If you say you like the differences, then YES you do understand.

    Knock it off!

    Oh dear lord… I flat out said that she went from looking like a woman to looking like David Duchovny.

    If you still fail to understand that, then I dunno how to engage.

    Unless you’re trolling. Welcome to ignore.

    I'm not trolling, but I'm still not understanding the issue. I guess, were you expecting the characters to look 100% identical to their PS2 designs? Were you expecting them to wear the same outfits?
