This thread really isn't about Dante's Inferno. It's about horrifying nightmare sheep.

Why did they bother with all the cheap looking 2d animation when the 3d graphics look better in every way? That just seems like a waste of effort.

Its the same studio that did the shitty Street Fighter IV OVA from the limited edition, too.

I just realized that could be read in a very different way than I intended it to be, but take it however you want.

I really hope this is as terrifying and disconcerting as it looks, and not... yeah, pandering, like someone upthread said. I have high hopes, though!

There's a lot of close-ups of Vincent's face, specifically his eyes. His shaggy hair and nose connect and divide his face into two halves. His eyes move in a strange, disconnected, almost chameleon-esque fashion. It gives off the impression that he's broken in some way, like he's two different people.

I wouldn't put much stock into that, though.

I dunno why folks are complaining about the anime cutscenes. Some stuff is just hard to get to look right using 3D animation, even at Pixar levels--what makes you think a little game from our ol' buddies at Atlus are gonna be able to handle that mess? I almost feel like taking bets on whether or not any and all kissing scenes in this game will be handled using character portraits/animated cutscenes to avoid the "Two dolls mashing against each other" portrayal we've seen in the likes of MGS3 and 4.

Catherine, I hope, will allow Atlus to prove to fans reared on the more recent Persona titles that they can relate to characters on a deeper, more adult level. Nothing wrong with going back to high school to fulfill your fantasy of being the smartest, strongest, most charismatic student ever, but this new title seems pretty different.

Twenty hours of gameplay, full voiced, multiple endings. Hopefully one will involve a startling revelation that she is Cathy.

After the low quality of videos on the prior systems I relished the PS2 actually displaying decent FMV quality (and get especially annoyed when games DO give video quality the shaft since usually they're trying to replicate in-game visuals). That's dissipated a lot over the last ten years, but I do like how the scenes for Catherine look in trailers.

Question:

Is it possible for something to feature sexual themes, and a hot lady (cartoon or otherwise) who engages in adult activities, and have it NOT seem pandery?

Other forms of media do it all the time. I don't know why games have such a hard goddamn time with it, but they certainly seem to.

Because other media is quite a bit older, would be my guess.

Do they? I honestly have a hard time telling, from a glance, which titles are the insightful looks into the more carnal side of relationships between fully conceptualized characters, and which ones might as well have "Emmanuelle" in the title? Black Snake Moan has a half naked girl chained up on the cover. Y Tu Mama Tambien has a lady in the midst of a (albeit fully clothed) manwhich. All I'm saying is trying to make these calls at a SUPER superficial level, especially considering who's making this game, is a bit silly.
