Yes. Which is exactly why I don't get haircuts in real life. I hope they fix that soon as well.

EDIT: Well, is that a pagetopper or what?

I'm starting to see why the female protagonists end up the more popular of the two....besides the obvious reason.

I prefer to think of my avatar as a daughter-like figure, which is probably the sort of thing I should hash out with my psychologist, come to think of it.

I see PCs that aren't characters in their own right as like an extradimensional limb that I'm using to interact with the game world. In a sense I ascribe more personhood to the NPCs than to my PC.

Optimism through stalwart scepticism is a defect not everyone is lucky enough to be cursed with.

They should have that Bleach guy design the male outfits.

[up] Tite Kubo in charge of the male designs would be rad.

But you know who would be even better? Hirohiko Araki.

I can definitely see the similarities between Araki's modern style and Pokemon's modern style.

Araki might be too much admittedly. Do I really want the guy who did Fugo or Miumiu's outfit designing clothes for pokemon mCs? Nah.

Sep 5th 2019 at 7:18:51 PM

Eh? I'm sure Gamefreak would rein Araki in so that his designs would fit with the rest of the franchise.

I'm thinking of his more modern stuff, like from Steel Ball Run and Jojolion, and I could totally see a Grass Gym Leader wearing the green business suit covered in designs of vines and pea pods that Mamezuku has.

Pokemon, okay. Characters? Idk nomura is hit or miss. TWEWY had some sick designs but he gave us Nooj. freakin. Nooj.

Sep 6th 2019 at 6:25:15 AM

Nomura totally could come on as a recurring Pokemon guest designer or something, and despite his current reputation the guy could definitely design something that isn't overly elaborate given he came up with the Cactuar and Tonberry over in Final Fantasy land.

He's probably the guy who designed the Heartless, Dream Eaters, and Unversed, all of which are pretty consistently good designs.

He probably also designed the Nobodies, which look kickass.

Nomura was the monster designer for Final Fantasy V and VIII and the main artist for KHII.

If you want to look at what Pokemon of his would look like, look there.

So I'll make a resolution, that I'll never make another one, just enjoy this ride on my trip around the sun, until its done.

what about The 3rd Birthday? i know he was a character designer but im not sure exactly what he worked on, and the monsters in that game are entirely uninspired, derivative, overdesigned but also boring shite.

Unclear, but I'd say likely not, since he according to interviews it wasn't planned for him to design anything more than a few of the most important characters for the game, and in general he's often been given that role in a lot of Square Enix games in the 2000's onward. It doesn't seem like he's done many monster designs after the 90's except for the Heartless and other enemies in Kingdom Hearts. He did apparently do the enemies in the original Parasite Eve though.

Regice started out decently, but kept falling in tiers until it became too bad for PU.

Sep 8th 2019 at 10:52:38 AM

[up]It is pure Ice with Clear Body and Ice body for abilities, poor speed, questionable utility moves, and no good way to boost its attacking abilities. PU may not have been inevitable, but this thing had nowhere to go but down in an increasingly fast and powerful metagame.
