She looked great. The new design was a bit weird initially but I'm liking it a lot after watching the footage again. The undershirt feels like the designer thought she should have support when doing all of the marital arts she's known for. Makes a bit of sense from that angle but then it makes the white tank top seem weird, lol.

The remake's interpretation of Tifa is uninspiring, with my primary complaints being the alterations to her outfit. I'd at least have rather seen her retain just the original high-cut white t-shirt; now it looks like she's wearing a ratty sports bra over a black compression shirt.

I think the only minor flaw I see (I really think she looks great) is that her outfit is TOO clean. Super bright white shirt. Clashes with the idea of the slums. It’s a major design problem with a lot of studios though, they’ve yet to learn the subtlety of weathering things

This. I think it makes lines along the white tank top, making it really hard to find a place to focus/rest your eyes because of the contrast. Stockings are sexy as hell and look good. Honestly that undershirt is the only really bad thing. It shouldn't poke out from her tank top everywhere. That makes it look bad. It's like you have a shirt sticking out everywhere under your shirt.

I didn't think about that and you're right. Though while she lives and works in the slum, she's working at a bar. I imagine she's not exactly trying to get it dirty doing manual labor or anything. But yeah, during travel and battle it should get dirtier. Same with everyone else. Staying at an inn or using a tent could clean it. Sad that they don't think about those things, but if we wanted everything, then the game would never be done.

I always thought people who were against stockings as odd, they definitely look very sexy and then when she was in action with that short skirt. LOL. I think its a well done modern upgrade.

Her face looks off. Like somebody that had plastic surgery. She's a fighter yet has stick limbs also no tits.

She looks good but not great. She looks like what you'd expect but I was hoping for more than that.

she looks great. took me a second to realize she is wearing thigh high stockings so it's more modest in some ways and more sexy in others.

It's just never enough bros...
The fanatics that control discourse at Resetera are just miserable people. Authoritarians, blind zealots.



Problems for fighters is that they also have to think about weight class.

That's without considering that FFVII is a fantasy world, where Cloud shouldn't be able to use that sword. Calls to realism only when it fits their agenda and if it doesn't then it's "just a game doesn't need to be realistic".
These people aren't rational, they're all about control. There's nothing wrong with a girl having really big breasts. A lot of guys like big breasts and there's nothing wrong with that either. Some don't care about breasts and care more about things like a nice ass. It's all good and our culture loves showing our sexiness, you see it all over instagram, all over facebook, all over Twitch. And there's nothing wrong with that. But at the same time exists the opposite where control over what will be shown is important, where slut shaming has taken a new form and they'll often overlap surprisingly, with some trying to be in both groups, often hypocritically. It's all about groups and the kind of culture that's been created in certain circles. Now, you also have the opposite problem as well, which was something that existed on GAF at some point, where people couldn't handle criticism of a character's design.

You see it whenever someone wants to show a Tifa design they like and someone will automatically attack them for their "porn fetish fantasy". Or that ridiculous reaction against "cute asians" at Resetera.

Looks perfectly fine.

I though they would nerf her to the ground, but this is very daring.

Yeah, the face bugs me more than the breast reduction or the hideous undershirt. She was the only character I liked in the original so it really sucks that they always screw her over in every subsequent rendition.

Pretty much how I figured it would look, no issue from me. Honestly I was a bit more concerned about the NA voices, but I'll live, it won't ruin it for me.

She looks great.

Inspired by the original, and not Advent Children.

She looks athletic and sexy.

The Goddess is back.

I mean the bartender.

Bartender was what I meant.

Eh it could be worse. I will take the complete edition on PC for the mod.
My only take on the new design is the clothes slightly differ from the original (black undershit and leggings).

What an absolute horseshit. One of my best friends has almost double the size of those boobs (yeah, she has huge breasts) and does kick-box and krav Maga, runs those Spartan races and is generally in very very good shape and not even once have I heard her complain about her breasts.

Khanimus was one of my least favorite posters when he was still around here. Glad to see he still hasn't found the cure for imbecility.
I remember him as Shannyboi from gonintendo. Huge nintendo fanboy that wants everything to be all G rated sunshine and rainbows. He's always been off.
