At the very least, go the Tales route and add costumes that fit the character. I'd at least go with Cloud or Tifa at this juncture if we were taking inspiration from FF7.
Sigh. I have nothing to say anymore, really. I don't mind cameo costumes at all, just so long as they seem to be typical of the character a la Tales costumes. This just seems relatively atypical and chosen without a lot of thought behind it.
Jesus people what's the fucking problem. At this point I have to believe the complaining posts just don't want to hear about the game, and have nothing to do with the actual content. Try this: don't post in threads about games you don't care about.
You get used to it, just learn to ignore some people and thats it. Everyone is entitled to its opinion right? Even if it does get kind of annoying in these Lightning related threads. :X Don't let others hatred towards something lessen your enjoyment. Honestly people at this point are just on auto mode: Sees Lightning thread = "wtf?" "Toriyama sucks" etc...
