Why do you care what I think?
no desire to argue actually. I just wanted to hear what you thought about the characters. You've said your bit, and I've offended you in the process. I apologize, and thank you for your thoughts.
Often times when people make sweeping statements (myself included) they don't really think about all the titles they are including in their statement.
In this case I'm referring to your statement that you don't like any of Nomura's art from Final Fantasy X on up. I just wanted you to think if that was certainly true or if it was just a generalization.
to be honest, I won't argue for or against his art style in later games, he never really was one of my favorite artists, but I certainly haven't thought his work has gotten worse.
I just thought that I'd see what you thought, about some of his more recent work (except FF Type 0 which isn't his art) since you are an artist and you might have some insight on what exactly has gone wrong with his art style in recent years in your opinion.
when you started talking about the story of FFX instead of the character art I just asked again because I thought you misunderstood. Furthermore when I saw you were confused about Final Fantasy Versus I thought it might be interesting to show more as you may have not heard of it before.
I don't mind you PMing me at all but I figured everyone could benefit from our thoughts. I'll be sure to clean up my inbox
I'm sorry you took my post the wrong way. I'm very direct, but it's not to be meant as insulting, I assure you. I like to encourage people to think, and elaborate on their statements. It's not for the sake of conflict, argument, or debate, it's to pick people's brains to see what everyone thinks.
I'd have to agree with you on the probability of bad English voice acting on Type 0 but I suppose you can't win em all.
As for Stand Guard? I still need to spend more time on it to give a fair assessment. As far as hacks go I think you've done quite well. You already know how I feel about augmenting character's personalities if you are still telling the same basic story, but that doesn't mean that it can't be interesting or entertaining.
I think you've done a good job overall and is a good first start. Would I herald it to all my friends? no, but that's not a slight against you, you're doing something original, and learning and growing, and that's what this place is all about.
I certainly can't be critical as I haven't released any hacks myself. Eventually if I put more time into it, I'll try to offer you some useful criticism, but until then, keep up the good work.
