Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD -- Lulu Had Cornrows All Along?!

The high-definition remaster of Final Fantasy X is looking fantastic. While there are still no screenshots of Final Fantasy X-2 in HD yet, if the FFX pictures are any indication, they are also bound to be gorgeous. The revamped graphics really do make a significant improvement; they’re really taking advantage of the PlayStation 3 and VITA’s texture capabilities to unveil what couldn’t be rendered as clearly before, such as Lulu’s cornrows. That’s imperative to the plot, you know. Hit the jump to read more about what just what the HD package will bring. (Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster: Collector’s Edition, PS Vita, PS3)

Why is fittycent there? In fact why are all those guys in the picture... they don't have cornrows. Seems like a bit of profiling going on here...
Septic  +   927d ago
Well when I think cornrows, I kind of think of black people (Sean Paul for some reason actually ). Most of my mates who've had them are black. It definitely is more common for black people to have them.

But yeah maybe there was a bit profiling going on but I doubt any malice or disrespect was intended. Pure conjecture on my part though. Just trying to douse any unnecessary flames.

No one in G Unit has cornrows. They just threw in some random Black people because all Black people are thugs with cornrows, apparently. /sigh

Racism basically.

never heard of twinfinite before today - definitely won't be returning to such a racist website.

If you don't feel like scrolling down, here is the comment where I address another person's concerns about this:
"I get what you mean, but I assure you those generalizations could not have been further from my intentions. In this instance, it was purely for exaggerated comedic purposes. While I think, in this particular instance, you just may be over-thinking it, I would like to apologize for having offended you. Thank you for your input."
Have a nice day, everybody.

Off THUG topic but Auron is a total tank badass. I can't wait to rip through this game in HD. This was the last quality FF game on par with the standards set in the past.

fitty? seriously, lol, you a straight up gangsta yo /s

Fitty cent with cornrows:

The pic is stupid, but not racist/profiling. Cut the drama ya'll.
XB1_PS4  +   927d ago
Well, actually, it is racial profiling. It's just not racist.

Sofresh has it right. It's like saying all black people like chicken.

Should of use a picture of Riff Raff, but racist are stupid.

Lulu would get boned from this thug.. (if she were real).. a gothic chick looking like that would get a ring from me lol
Snookies12  +   928d ago
Ummm, I realized that she had corn rows the very first day I played this on PS2 lol.
The_Blue  +   927d ago
Should of use a picture of Riff Raff
izumo_lee  +   928d ago
Ok this HD collection enhances the graphics of the characters like Lulu & the first thing you mention is her hair? Ummmm isn't there another part of her physique that is well more noticeable than her hair just saying.

Well Tetsuya Nomura did go on record saying that Lulu is one of his favorite designs.
WilliamH  +   928d ago
Cornrows? More like Lulu with enhanced TITTIES & FUNBAGS!

No, but every other article should be! /s

Fair enough, boobs it is fellas

If instead of a moogle or cactuar, she was using a diamond skill as a weapon, I'd buy this game AND a PS3. CORN ROWS!
George Sears  +   928d ago
If only these folks would had praised Lulus boobs instead of Yevon none of this shit would had happened.
GenericNameHere  +   927d ago
I don't know if it's their clothing, but Yuna and Rikku had pretty big (or at least slightly bigger than normal) breasts, despite not showing cleavage. I like Yuna's summoned outfit which showed her bra (I'm still debating if it's a bra or just a black colored top), and Rikku's skintight Al Bhed clothing was just "bonerific" to say the least (yes, I know she's 15 in FFX, but she's in my age range, so it's not pedophilia... And she's a videogame character, not a real person).

I didn't like the default costumes in FFX-2. Made Yuna and Rikku look wohore-ish.
Hicken  +   927d ago
Rikku's boobs aren't big at all. She was in the B-cup range, and didn't get much bigger by X-2. The clothing made them look a little bigger, but not much. Yuna was a small to medium C(using Western standards here), and got to be about a large C in X-2.... maybe.

Also, pedophile is used for a liking of prepubescent kids; having a thing for Rikku would make you an ephebophile. In any case, because characters only age if there's a sequel, they're kinda exempt from that whole thing, anyway.
Snookies12  +   927d ago
@Hicken - I see you've done your research in the boob department... Very good sir, very good... Lol!
MikeEaton  +   928d ago
In all seriousness though, I'm glad they're doing this with those games. I still think 'X' has one of the most moving stories I've ever played.
-Gespenst-  +   928d ago
Are they not just loads of braids tied back??
anime_swag_pro  +   927d ago
The person who wrote this does not have a very good understanding of african hair if he thinks that lulu has corn rows. They are indeed only braids tied back.

Corn rows follow the scalp, these are just a collection of hair braids that hang loose.
jc48573  +   928d ago
wasn't this confirmed long ago? cause I swear someone pointed this out.
Kluv  +   927d ago
Does anyone not find this author's generalizations offensive. So she has cornrows, which means she totes guns?! And then he has the gall to take that gun shooting person and associate it with some of the most popular africans americans of our generation. That's not risque, that's just stupid.
capitanandi  +   927d ago
I get what you mean, but I assure you those generalizations could not have been further from my intentions. In this instance, it was purely for exaggerated comedic purposes. While I think, in this particular instance, you just may be over-thinking it, I would like to apologize for having offended you. Thank you for your input.

It is indeed insensitive and borderline cheap writing to make such a headline with that picture.
Darth_Bane79   927d ago | Personal attack | show
kafe  +   927d ago
Gun-shooting person? Most popular African Americans in our generation? He doesn't talk about guns anywhere.
Race isn't even a factor; literally all he did was put Lulu next to fitty cent, who had cornrows: http://mrldavis.com/wp-cont...

Seriously, what the hell are you talking about?
Pozzle  +   927d ago
Did the author of this article...just...not pay attention? Or watch any of the cutscenes/FMV sequences with Lulu? Or have Lulu on their team? Or see Lulu's concept art? It's not like her cornrows and braids are hidden away or anything. o.O

Lol that pic

I don't know what the problem is. I for one think that picture is badass.

Lulu's hot!
Darth_Bane79  +   927d ago
Damn, after reading the comments, I think the people that see stuff as racist are more racist than the people doing jokes like this. Why? because while the author is just simply being funny, the people getting offended are actually acting out of false and unjustified resentment. In other words, they are just hating, lol
chobit_A5HL3Y  +   927d ago
lulu was my favie o3o
PSNTomaz  +   927d ago
Believe it or not alot of Asian Females in Pop Culture has Corn rows of some sort. whether its Half Rows/Strait hair or full rows. alot of Females period no mater what race wear corn rows.. Madonna wore them once but this is Racial profiling.
