I'd love to see the web traffic metrics to see how our front page views have gone down since you posted that little "gem" of a news post?

How can Obshitian be so bad at character design? You'd think after failing over and over again (the nightmares in NWN2 will never be forgotten) you'd think they'd hire some actual artists instead of the blue-hair brigade.
But then again, it's not like they care about other departments either and their testers that they're so proud of can't understand the concept of a dead end. Literally below animals cognitive level and you can get paid at Obsidian so of course this hideous shit would get into their games.

"Ugly" is in across the board at all western developers.

And next gen is here. I heard some devs are still stuck in PS3 land when the potential of PS5 is far greater (same is probably so across all platform board). Are they just using some algorithm to draw rather than actually drawing?

I can't even watch a youtube let's play of this game.

Does it get better if you sink a few dozen hours into it?
It gets worse as you slowly realize all the things missing that are present in the games it pretends to be like, and all of its other flaws.

Katarina in Dungeon Siege 3 looked fine.

Not really. Androgynous, prepubescent male looking females and/or downright ugly females has become the norm. And they're purposely made to look masculine.
Here's what the artist that designed Cassandra's look in Dragon Age: Inquisition had to say about it:
I no longer had to justify what I thought was attractive. Her face became all about her aggression. Through the angle of her facial structure to the angle of her ears. It all became about giving her a strong aggressive forward visual flow.

She went from being stern but still attractive in DA2 to looking like a prepubescent boy in Inquisition.

Look at the female protagonist for the new assassin's creed, how Ellie was made uglier the further in development TLoU2 got, etc., etc.,
