Ellie actually looks like a troubled hungry child now.

MaxXAttaxX1236d ago

Which is a good thing.

And before, she didn't look her age.

Bimkoblerutso1235d ago

Kinda wish they'd fix that fivehead though.

PurpHerbison1235d ago

I see nothing wrong with a fivehead seeing as many people have them.

Bimkoblerutso1235d ago

...I dunno. I think they could subtract two from that thing and it would still look fine.

IAMERROR1235d ago

The snake comparison was just silly, why compare an NES model to a current one? lol Of course theyre going to look dramatically different but it has to do more with technology advances. hahaha

MaxXAttaxX1235d ago

That wasn't the NES model -__-

IAMERROR1235d ago

k, msx. point still stands lol

lociefer1235d ago

i must admit the old ellie model looks better

th3n00bg4m3r1235d ago

But, the old Ellie does not fit with the game.

lociefer1235d ago

Must admit, I prefer the new Elizabeth look.

Enemy1236d ago (Edited 1236d ago )

Elizabeth now looks more natural for the game's setting and atmosphere. Not too sure how a slutty goth version of her even made the cut at some point.

@ VsAssassin: LOL

Mounce1236d ago

I just found it odd that they were trying to cater her personality as an innocent-yet-older girl who hadn't grown up so she still had a child-like personality. Yet she was dressed like a giant cock-tease in all blatant means.

Not that I was complaining about the older look.....I quite enjoyed the view of anything that simulates a push-up bra. Only issue was indeed that, she was more sexualized than what Ken Levine wanted, even though her external style just contradicted the internal concept of her character.

Boobs were nice though, I'll miss them....

Bimkoblerutso1235d ago

Yeah, all slutiness aside, the hair, eyes and clothing just looks a lot more accurate to the game's aesthetic, I think.

Megaton1235d ago

It's not a new look. Ken said it's just how she looks in the beginning when you first meet her. Everything we've seen before is how she looks for the rest.

VsAssassin1236d ago (Edited 1236d ago )

Dante now looks like Hilary Swank from the movie Boys Don't Cry.

r40k2131236d ago

Great. Right when I was finally being convinced that maybe this new Dante isn't so bad, you show up and post that image. I hate him again now. Congrats.

Reibooi1236d ago

That made my day. I got one hell of a laugh out of that.

banjadude1236d ago

I cannot unsee this! damn you, lol.

VsAssassin1236d ago (Edited 1236d ago )

Honestly, I always thought of the new Dante (or is it Donte now?) as Hilary Swank when he was first revealed almost 2 years ago. I never thought that this would cause you guys mental damage after I voiced it out though! Hahaha!!! Sorreeee... >_<

r211236d ago

Isnt it possible that Elizabeth changes clothes later on in the game? Ah well, she still looks great.

Auron1236d ago (Edited 1236d ago )

Ive seen in the trailer she switches clothes and hair. It shoulda been chris redfield in stead of leon. Hes changed alot more than leon.

Megaton1235d ago

Not just possible, that's exactly what it is according the Ken. People questioned the change over Twitter, where he said she just looks like that in the beginning when you first meet.

SolidGear31236d ago

I lol'd at the difference in Solid Snake. Metal Gear (1987) and Metal Gear Solid 4 (2008). Did they expect him to stay 8 bit!? LOL
