Congrats buddy... you basically "created" Ronin from Stargate Atlantis and gave him a grappling hook arm. I haven't seen an interesting looking character from Japan in years. Chris Redfield, he's a creative one alright. Then there's the host of new characters in Street Fighter IV. Lady in suit, fat guy in leotards, luchador... creativity up the yin-yang there. I'll admit the western devs have wrested their designs too firmly along the lines of cyber-space-ninja-marines, but it's not like the Japanese devs have been pumping out anything as interesting as, say, Kefka recently.
