IMO, they are ruining the characters with the new art style and designs... What a shame...

So, what would you have them look like, considering they looked like badly modeled plastic dolls back 20 years ago?

It's not about the models. It's about the design of them. I agree, some of these looks bloody awful. That is simply not Chief Thunder, nor what I had in mind. That is Tonto from Lone Ranger. Stereotypical native American style look. Looks like a design for a native American they'd come up with in a 50's comic book.

I miss the original announcer voice too:

I'm guessing that the modelers are talented, but the concept art this is based on? Shit. Utter shit. Unappealing crap design.

But i guess i'm damaged, browsing around on the Zbrush forums every day looking at amazing people making amazing stuff.

I actually wasn't referring to the actual models, but the design. The design of the old characters, Chief Thunder in-particular was pretty bad. He was only "Indian" or "Native American" because of the stereotypical (borderline racist) portrayal of him in cutscenes.

What's wrong with the original Chief Thunder design?

Every news I see about this game makes me hate MS more and more. Hate the new designs... and where's the girls? Only 8 characters, I'm guessing Orchid will be the only one

Did you like the old designs? They were pretty awful too.

The proportions on all the old characters were pretty weird, IMHO. I think for today's audiences, that wouldn't fly. Even Brink's characters looked more "natural" compared to KI's.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the original KI and Chief Thunder was my favorite character (which is why I was never a KI2 fan), but they were cool "back then". Nowadays, they just look odd and amateurish. (again, my opinion).

I like what I've seen in Chief Thunder and Saberwolf, so far.

Now, bring on my TJ Combo and Orchid and we're set!!!

There's no opinions here, it's a fact, the new character designs suck balls

Wow ok... lets see how it turns out...

As long as the females look fantastic all will be forgiven. Still a wait and see for that

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (1 Day ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (1 Day ago)
