Title. I feel a little lost in what’s the real target for that version of D2.
For the younglings that were born post 2000, do you feel represented by 40-60 year olds?
And for the veterans that feel represented by characters of the same age, does that mean that the new spiderman is too young and we should get a 60 year old peter parker like he is in the “new” comics?
personally i don’t feel the changes in the characters make me feel more “represented” but instead remind me of how old i actually am.
am i missing a point here? or there’s some hidden detail about young people yearning for old characters to feel represented this days im not aware of.
im sure there’s a real reason for making the characters so old, it’s just that i don’t feel like it has a purpose, on the contrary, i feel like if those seven guys are the best hope of humanity, sanctuary is lost. they don’t look “tuff” they look sadly depressed, like they went to tristram to die by a suicidal thought more than searching for an heroic feat.
for that weird guy that is thinking “you’re not a character artist, you don’t own pixar” (i’ve met thousands of those guys in facebook and youtube, i don’t know how many lurk blizzard’s forums), yes, i am a character artist. and i’ve been for 25+ years (i don’t own pixar, tho), and changing those faces would take me 20-40 minutes if i had the files.
im not thinking about the technical difficulties for not changing them, but the design choices behind those changes in the first place.
