Random people speaking on online forums don't speak on behalf of an entire country.

The person who wrote this article understands this right ?

Karin looks fine. It's Cammy who needs a facial redesign.

Oh and Ken's drug addict face too.

Yeah, more like "creepy Japanese gamers who like women to look like hyper-sexualized minors call her ugly". It's like a Chris Hansen litmus test.

Actually since the beta started I noticed they fixed cammys bright yellow eyebrows and generally her facial structure is more feminine now. Just look at this alt face

Then Karin now has the same problem as cammy had when she was revealed with bright neon eyebrows, fat lips, and thin face. They fixed cammy so hopefully the reveal model is just temp or something.

My issue was more the shape of her eyes, but this does look better and the new eyebrows help.

Street Fighter Alpha 3 also has sprites with toon designs in addition to that game taking place when everyone was younger.

Ahhh...the laughable irony of ugly people calling fictional characters ugly. Typical.

Ahhhhh.....the irony of ppl attacking other pp because of their opinion. Seriously!

If you're going to comment on a comment, make sense please.

Many real people are born ugly. That's not their fault. We can't do much about it with current technology.

Fictional characters can be made attractive. It is a conscious decision to make a fictional character ugly, and that has to be justified in some way. In a game reflective of the real world, ugly fictional characters make sense. If it is a story point then it makes sense. In a zany fighting game, there is no justification for ugly characters, so both male and females should be made to look easy on the eyes.

It is more than logical.

Seems they hate on Western-based females.

Baka-akaB1538d ago (Edited 1538d ago )

Not really , Karin was one of the most in demand characters even in the SF4 days

blackblades1538d ago (Edited 1538d ago )

Probably or they just to stuck on anime looking characters and low budgets graphics. She looks good to me they just got issues.

iceman061538d ago

That's interesting because the Western look is so popular with the Japanese. (Western culture in general)
That's why you see the typical red or blonde haired girls with the big round eyes in their anime. Many Japanese women have gone to dying their hair blond (ish) to get that look. So, I don't get this one either...unless it's because she doesn't look cutesy enough!?!

If we put "awe" before the "some", we get awesome, and that what she is.
I don't who redesign her trunks into full leggings, but it looks great on her.

Baka-akaB1538d ago (Edited 1538d ago )

I was never a big Karen fan , outside of her fighting style , so i dig her SFV look too . Didnt ask for a redesign for Cammy either .

Some angles of camera , and the lightning involved , and still shots from scenes in motion (wich the people against those designs obviously noticed quickly) , makes everyone sometimes look bad , not specifically Cammy , Chun Li , or that Ken redesign .

Some of it will be about a necessary coat of polish , but that's to be expected .

TomatoDragon1538d ago (Edited 1538d ago )

I thought Cammy looked excellent. She's been my main in the beta so far.

ZaWarudo1538d ago

Karin looks fiiiine to me.
