So I’m playing FF13 at the moment and I hate putting Snow in my party. Why do I hate putting Snow in my party, may you ask? Well because I pay attention to detail and somehow this slipped by the designers.
Now if you play FF13 on the PS3, this might be different. But I have a 360, and I love it. As of right now, it can do no wrong, except crash. Which I hope it never does. So knock on wood, even though I’m not superstitious.
But anyway. Back to what I was saying about Snow. So here’s the thing: his coat. When he’s in your party, he just has this basic white trenchcoat on, no frills or fuss, just a coat with the sleeves pushed up so he looks like a blond John Cusack with a beanie on his head. No big deal right?
Because it’s the cinematics where shit starts to look funny. He’ll have one of these super dramatic, Brock-type moments and he’ll turn around…AND THERE’S A DESIGN ON THE BACK OF HIS COAT. WTF, SQUARE ENIX.
When I’m fighting with him, 95% of the time I only get to see his back. So why can’t I get the pretty design in gameplay mode, huh? Wtf is up with that? I think my subconsious would convince me that I liked him and would use him more in my parties if there wasn’t a costume inconsistancy.
Not cool, Square Enix. Not cool. Big deal. Such a big deal.
