melty blood source material = pretty cool if obviously very flawed storygame with some neat ideas made as a passion project by two guys in a basement which was then turned into a fighting game as a passion project by maybe 5-10 guys in a different basement who thought that original storygame was neato

this game source material = yet another gacha game that exists to bait over-stressed salary-men and people with mental illnesses into gambling all their money away on gifs of soulless generic cliche unexciting 1D anime babes (and the odd dude) with no real unified vision beyond "whatever trend is in this week" that you then use in an extremely bare bones rpg type game because actual gambling is illegal in japan so they have to hide it under a few layers of bullshit first, which is now being turned into a fighting game because arcsys decided to make a game with even less visual variety in movesets than dbz

That's a common technique in animation. Makes things look smother in motion but it's hosed up when you look at a single freeze-frame.

also hoping the same but expecting the worst

edit: there are good ppl working on this game so I really want it to be good. but at this point, marketing speak for fgs gets autotranslated by my brain in the worst way

Yeah, I know. However, it's worth noting that while common in 2d it's actually not common at all in 3d game animation due to technical reasons (namely, it requires a bunch of extra bones which makes animations heavier both to store and render, plus pre-UE4-gen engines traditionally lack support for non-uniform scaling because it makes it much easier to encode animations, support for it had to be modded in UE3 by Arcsys for the first Xrd and Blizzard uses a custom engine) and game animators usually not being well versed in the traditional principles of animation, and post-Xrd Arcsys games and Overwatch were pretty much originators for the modern use of this (and for that matter it hasn't spread much). Certainly the first to talk about it at GDC, although I think League of Legends may have been using it before that, and if we go waaaaay back Ecstatica actually had it as a feature of its animation system.

yeah people going "what is wrong with you weirdo, there are no anime pedophiles" at that comment are either being pretty disingenuous or are extremely loving naive about anime

even if the game itself does absolutely nothing along those lines, even if the fandom is largely good about this, i guaran-loving-tee you someone on the chain of command for greenlighting these characters did so because "it'll get the 'lolicons' to dump money into the gacha"

The potatoes aren't pedo bait.

All of that pretty much all goes to the female draphs I don't think any of them are likely to make it to the game though, other than the ones that are less questionable to begin with.

for real tho irregardless of granblue's failings or wokeness or not in this regard its insanely frustrating to have this conversation literally every time a female character, like, exists. like you're literally inventing some vague shadowy figure who may or may not exist going 'ah, we will make money off the horny men' and by that logic literally no female character ever can exist because someone out there will probably be horny for her based on whatever traits she might have, and there's the vague possibility they were aware that someone out there might be horny for them. its an exhausting mental state to try and exist around.

i'm not "inventing" poo poo. it is extremely loving well known, to the point where i genuinely don't believe you're unaware of this, that like 90% of modern anime is made to suck money out of horrible, horrible people because at some point anime producers realized that that was safer money than trying to go for a wide audience. assuming an anime gacha game is going to be extremely cynical and awful in the same ways is... not really a giant leap! it's actually not really a leap at all so much as it is a very tiny hop!

edit: and i realize that it is frustrating to have to constantly defend good female characters in anime because, essentially, nobody believes that they're good. gently caress, i agree with you on that front. but, like, the perception that anime is very goddamn bad at this did not come out of nowhere, and for shonen/seinen-targeted stuff it's even usually a fair generalization (shojo and josei are, uh, obviously not quite gonna be as bad here). that's part of why i always see the exceptions as worth cherishing: because they're cases where someone actually managed to push something good through all the cynical corporate morons, without having it get hosed over in the process. that's not a small amount of effort, from what I gather.
