no rpg and even more j-rpg makes logical sense in terms of strenght and muscular build. My point of what i was saying is that its not a sexualized costume now for what she's suposed to be, since the costume of fighters in real life are close to it and posted examples of it, and i agree about the thigh highs thats non realistic and even the leather stuff, but i dont think to not have it would make it less sexy/revealing on contrary, i said its a stylish representation of what a fighter looks.Eylos Nice the angle is now it's fake when originally it was women in the gym supposedly dress and look like this in real life... reality check from a woman: no the fuck we do not. And skin tight leather thigh highs that restrict movement are the last thing someone would opt to fight for their life in, so no it doesn't make sense from the "she's a fighter" perspective, either. Cloud is a bad counterpoint. He has a lot more muscle than her, and isn't she supposedly one of the strongest martial artists in the game's world? Her relative frailty is a huge part of her sexualisation and cannot be divorced from the topic.
how convenient then that none of them are here to say so themselves. I notice you have a grand total of zero posts in the sexualized women's design thread so you clearly know a lot about the topic and are interested in other perspectives.
It's just anecdotal. I'm mostly referring to Twitch personalities based on their reactions to the trailers.
I may not see completely eye to to eye with Eylos on this, but I'm not gonna hold a grudge over that (and the follow-up was appreciated and clarified some things, thanks Eylos.) the part you quoted was not directed at him or anyone else talking about athletic gear. but that one comment read word-for-word like a bad faith argument regularly seen in the design thread that gets swiftly refuted and sometimes mods even step in. It never goes anywhere worthwhile.I think what they are trying to argue is that "athletic, sporty clothing" is more normal than we think it is.
I don't agree with that point and find it weak. But I think it's reasonable to reflect upon - it's not necessarily a tactic in some heinous sense.
Anyhow, if I'm given the choice of buying Tifa's AC outfit, im doing that right away.
Edit: just fyi, im a dude
Can you clarify which comment that is that reads like a bad-faith argument? I don't understand fully.
Tifa should be far more muscular than she is, given the things she's fighting with her bare hands. Something like this would make more visual impact (although technically an MMA fighter's build would make more logical sense):
Cloud's lack of muscle mass is at least explained in-story by his mako therapy.
Would be legitimately baffling if her classic and AC outfits aren't dlc day 1 or maybe even unlockable in game same with Cloud's AC outfit and atleast a recolor of his regular outfit to be closer to the original.
It's the only thing that would visually fit. Even an MMA build would look too small for someone attacking giant robots with nothing but their bare fists, although it would still be an improvement. My friend, who's new to FF, is very excited for this game but even he thought that visually, Tifa really does not look like she should be doing any damage at all to larger bosses like Abzu or the Air Buster.
There is nothing wrong with being hot/sexy and their looks are meant to be in contrast with their personalities. Tifa's outfit is allusive while Aerith's (combined with her job) gives her an innocent girl aura. Turns out they're nothing like their looks lead you to believe.To each their own, I guess. Just look at that picture. So many images of her jutting her chest forward, her rear jutting back. A more modest outfit would make those poses less an issue for a dad like me playing with younger children, or a religious household (like me also) whose family values modesty for both men and women.
I don't think I'm being unreasonable or prudish. She is not simply unbelievably attractive, she is dressed in a way that many of us would deem sexual and hot.
Like, look at Aerith. She is just as attractive and beautiful as Tifa, but the nature of her outfit changes the whole aura of her on screen.
Unfortunately I have to post this behind-the-characters photo because it makes clear what I'm trying to get at.
Tifa has always been one of my mains. Her, Cloud, and Barret. I love them as characters, but the reality is that her outfit, although it is nostalgic for the OG ff7, it is also fanservice in other ways. That is how it appears to me and will come off to many others I bet.
Edit: I want to say that I don't want to offend anyone with this post, and sorry if I have. But I want to keep this as is because I think it's an important contribution to this discussion.
was most likely FF7 Remake and RE3 Remake but there's a chance it was other games.Brittney Brombacher said:
nope, the delay was basically a month and a week. not sure how you missed it what with you being so active in the various FF7 Remake threads.
If there's one thing I'm not super focused on, it's the particular DAY games come out. I usually just know what the month is and then I'm like "oh that's out next week".
It was originally March 3rdIf there's one thing I'm not super focused on, it's the particular DAY games come out. I usually just know what the month is and then I'm like "oh that's out next week".
I knew it was April, I just thought it was end of March -> end of April, rather than end of March -> beginning of April.
Some people have speculated that it may happen near the OG release date, but there's no word. At this point, I would push it out of your head and just be pleasantly surprised if it drops before release.
so they're shipping 2 separate boxes? also where are you getting that info? from a manufacturing perspective it makes a lot of sense, the 1st class edition also includes all of the deluxe edition stuff and that's being sold everywhere.I've only recently found out that the 1st class edition ships with the deluxe box and you get the figure separately. Considering the price is over 3x the deluxe cost, I can't help but think this comes across as really lazy. Even the ultimate edition of XV had its own box.

"Please note, this is a soft bundle. The FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE Deluxe Edition contents are bundled separately from the Play Arts Kai Cloud Strife & Hardy Daytona."
Well XV also had a Noctis figure pack in and you got this box.
It just comes off as cheap when you're paying for a premium package.
It’s almost nuts at this point how much play Tifa is getting in marketing.
I don't know about that, Aerith has been way more prominent in the Theme Song Trailer and the Opening Cinematic.It’s almost nuts at this point how much play Tifa is getting in marketing.
Not entirely surprising, but between the video thumbnails, twitter feeds, posters from Square coupled with similar branding from media outlets, fan YouTube thumbnails and cosplay and fan arts.
I’m starting to legit feel bad for the other girl.
