she's great but god these "is [my personal opinion] the best this gen?" threads are a nightmare. everyone's just posting high resolution images of the character they like most and being antagonistic. surely there's a better way
 
Nico does genuinely make me laugh at times, especially that last bit in the van, but no.


"Hey Noct, let's go take an unsolicited photo of Cindy today." :|
He can be kinda lascivious but hay he's a bit naive and a sweetener at heart, and grows outta it eventually, what can I say? xD The eyecandy role given to Cindy by the story on the other hand, I'd take that up with the narrative gears..!!

Can't stand her. The conversation she has with Vs bird was just pointless to the point I was shaking my head and asking why? It was so awkward.

The only time I liked her was the second time Nero calls her and she arrives in the van in the most hilarious way.

I love her.


Not quite done with the game yet but Nico's certainly a highlight of the game for me. Sort of like if Cindy from Final Fantasy XV had more personality and scenes.

Is it weird that two recent japanese games have a sexy mechanic lady with southern(ish) accents? Is this some new trope or fetish because . . . I wouldn't mind seeing more.

Her accent kills anything that would make her even remotely charming.
Why didnt they just give her a "regular" accent, or if she was supposed to be from the south or whatever, tone it down a bit.
Its like they directed her VO actress to pump it up to 100 on the accent scale....it needed to be about a 3.

I lived in the South US for years and heard traveled all around heard all sorts of southern accent...I always found them charming but this was something else.

Also I think the remodeling they did on Darth Bador was actually detrimental to the character.
Her more natural smile and mouth shape was absolutely fine.
She also has the cutest accent.....why couldnt Nico have been British again?

She’s a huge dork with a van and questionable driving skills. The first 7 minutes or so give you a good feel for her without too many spoilers.
These are her best scenes? That's it for the most lovable character of the gen? Watched the whole thing, only saw 2 moments in there that stood out, meh

Kinda get what people mean by the voice, maybe it's an acquired taste.

I love how he cartwheels when he falls down a cliff, and then bounces a few times. He's such a goof.
Yea he has a lot of precious animations lol

Phht.

Fuck no. Hated her within 5 seconds.

(Not that she was an exception, so far I've hated every character in the game within seconds.)

That voice makes me want to scratch my eardrums out and a lot of her dialogue is borderline gibberish.

She's actually off-putting and irritating for me and the bf. She's dragging down every cutscene imo. I just reiterate what i had to say about her in the OT:

I thought I would have liked her, but she's way too much, spitting one-liners referencing situations or dialogue that don't even play out that way, only to appear edgy. Seriously she's often just monologuing weird things while Nero behaves normally. Also talking about how she can make sth. nice out of this thing she didn't even know existed before, playing the "Nah i'll sleep, you go on kiddo"-card everytime...she's quite unbearable and too much in your face for us :/
"uh uh, don't let Kyrie see that, Nero. Naaasty" Wtf?

Haven't played the game yet but from trailers, her accent and somehow her jaw didn't really appealed to me.

Of course things change when you play the game and start learning about the character more than their superficial characteristics.

Thought this was about Niko from OneShot and you misspelled their name. Disappointed.


As for the character proposed by OP....getting huge objectification of women vibes....We need a "is X the best new waifu?" megathread to contain this kinda stuff.
