    Man, I love his art. I feel so fucking dumb for not getting the LE of the HD collection when it was cheap

    I like the art. Hate the characters though.

      All of them? I like most of them, especially Kaz and Amanda.

      • TheF1BOB

        Characters were forgettable. Only like Kaz and Big Boss.

        Shame he don’t do Portable Ops artwork. 🙁

          I just think they deserved more screen time, through cutscenes.

            I agree, that characters in Peace Walker weren’t as memorable as past characters, but they were interesting. My only complaint is that Amanda reminds me way too much of Meryl, but with an accent, Cecile is nice but serves little to no purpose in story, and Strangelove have a good design, but she’s too whiny and dramatic to be likeable IMO. Zadornov, Coldman and Paz would shine more if the main story weren’t so short, but they did their job. Kaz was the best inclusion, imo.

          I disagree did you do all the codec conversations I admit some of the characters could have been better but I think peace walker introduced some of the best of the series I really like Paz, Chico, amanda and Huey. Peace walker also let us learn more about miller and he might even be in my top 3 favourite characters in the series

          for me only Kaz and Strangelove(love her design, her aura reminds me of Ada Wong) were memorable.

          the rest as you said where forgettable.

          shame he didn’t do Portable Ops,. pretty much every character there have a purpose and actually a badass.

          Null(Gray Fox), Coldman(playing poker with Big Boss), and one of the best villains Gene!

    Does anyone know if they’re going to release an English translation of the PW novel?

    • Nyxus

      Very doubtful, at least I don’t think it’s planned for now.
