Soul Calibur VI: General discussion

Yeah, no I get that, I’m just saying I think you’re overanalysing & it’s not really that deep. We all know I love respecting the cultures and traditions of the places video games get their inspiration from (aka the tribe debate a couple weeks ago) but microscoping a fictional character on a genetic, DNA level..? I think that’s a touch too far
It doesn't take a microscope to notice her lips going from thin to full, her eyes going from narrow to wide and so on and so forth. In this particular case those changes end up in a switch of ethnicity, but I'm not really sad about ethnicities, I'm sad about character design features jumping all over the place in general. Her boob size has nothing to do with ethnicities, but I'm sad about it as well.
I just want some consistency and integrity between games, otherwise it kills any kind of suspension of disbelieve. If developers don't care about their designs, why should I?

If developers didn’t care about designs they would have ported over the same models from MKX that they obviously weren’t happy with and gone from there. People dont pay for projects they don't care about.

They hired a team of creators to revamp Jacqui’s aesthetics AND movelist because she alongside many of the characters in MKX weren’t to the fanbase or the developer’s satisfaction. They obviously care lol.

It’s like the opposite of SC6.

They don't care for integrity and consistency, they only care about graphics fidelity which for me is always secondary. They also clearly care about sex negative regressive politics, which to me is a giant red flag.
Point in case, if you like MK11 Jacqui as she is now, don't get too attached to her either, since this new design will also get discarded and trashed once they start working on MK12.

MK11 girls are still sexy. Idk why people think it’s some sort of feminazi, regressive, political red flag just bc girls dont have their tits out in games where they get beaten up and chopped into pieces.

🌸✨🌾it literally aint that deeeep🌾✨🌸

I think they are not. It's very subjective, you can't speak for other people.

Skin tight body suits that show cleavage, breast forms, and ass cheek creases with win poses that look them up and down their bodies as they pant, blow bubbles or in Kitana’s case do a slow mo as she turns to literally show off her butt, arent sexy enough for you? lol straight men are so demanding this year

I've read that people also complain about Lady from new DMC and I find her to be hella more interesting and attractive than her DMC 3 version
I find it kinda sad that since SCIV they are kinda limited when it comes to creating new body models for characters

Africa is the cradle of humanity, first humans emerged there and then spread everywhere else. For that reason Africans are more genetically diverse than the rest of the world combined (link). Basically people are used to lump all Black people into the same race just because of their skin color, but from a scientific perspective different ethnic groups of African people have more genetic differences between each other than for example an Asian and a Native American.
Going back to Jacqui Briggs, her MKX iteration looks Bantu while her MK11 iteration looks Nilotic.
I think you mean north africa was the cradle. It all depends on how you define 'african', if you look at san groups or arabs or ethiopians then they're basically different but thats because they have ties to different continents (that's why the largest differences are coastal countries) but the majority of bantu groups who make up the bulk of 'africans' are so closely linked it's insane. If you mean that africa was the cradle of humanity, and by extension everyone who originated from there is african, then that's wrong too.

Also LOL at posting a WaPo link on anything race related.

What do you think of character differences in mkx vs mk11 like kano and cassie?

Edit: To keep it SoulCal related, what do you think of examples like cervy becoming human in sc5 or raphael's vampiric progression or asta's different design changes in each instalment?
