Tommy was never supposed to look like a drug king pin? He's a violent criminal who was just in a jail far away from the Florida sun. Now he looks like the co-founder of Bosley Hair Club who summers in Boca Raton.

While I like the style I will agree that Tommy does look very strange. If I were to pin it down I'd say he should have a different nose, more Roman like and should probably have arm hair, looks to smooth otherwise. 

He might look so fat as a remnant of the old models with those huge blocky limbs. I think it's pretty clear they had to work from the original models rather than make something completely new maybe because of the original mocap data?

Good spot. 
 

I can see the same people complaining about Tommy looking “persian” and “Punjabi” complaining about this.
 

Make the connection.

Man, I am Punjabi and I find it hilarious. He looks like your typical Arabic or Indian/Pakistani Punjabi Jatt. Pretty much all my friends said this. He doesn't look like your typical Indian/Paki but more like a northern Punjabi.

 

It is not racist and you can't compare the flag thing to that joke, he does look weird now.

When the resemblance is used as part of the case being made that the game is now “ugly”—that’s uncalled for. To borrow a phrase from OJ Simpson, “I’m just saying!!”

Yeah, God forbid we portray dumb rednecks as dumb rednecks, can't have that!

What was that? Rosenberg looks like a jewish cokehead / Sean Penn in Carlito's Way if his face wasn't punchable? f*ck that, make him a hapa teenager!

 

How could anyone who dares to criticize blatant disregard for artistic integrity, possibly be anything but a racist, slavery supporter?!

Tommy should be proud that somebody called him Persian. 🤣

To be fair, this isn't the first time VC gets censored, if one recalls the whole "No - Haitian fiasco".

But again: Subtleties like "criminal organizations are usually divided along racial/national lines, and are thus portrayed accordingly. That DOES NOT mean we/you should be xenophobic scumbags!" seem to elude the average person.

-------

Also: I don't even think Nu-Tommy looks Indian, he looks like a fake tan - Dude Bro to me, they even changed his f*cking nose bridge to be less "roman"... The opposite of "diversity and racial representation".

-------

Edit. I have to say, though, much of the environment seems to have seen some real improvements, without messing with the overall aesthetic.

I for one have seen Italian people in my life and actually think he looks the part now. We just never realized how much of an Italian he was.

Buildings now use interior cubemaps to give the illusion of actual rooms like in Spiderman games

Tommy looks a bit weird. But in general every character looks like they’ve had plastic surgery with extra botox.

Imagine you can eat in VC and make Tommy look fat, that would be epic!

Maybe they add in definitive edition, that was something devs never thought of implementing before SA because of the limitations now it makes sense to have all the three games get similar mechanics!

I know the lighting has improved, but in the origional the Neon would blanket the whole screen which looked great, now it looks a lot more confined to just around the light itself

Yes, there are many improvements but vehicles may lose many details, for example Dodo no longer have any details in its wings. Except added lights.

It funny, the orange skin is present even on the original, it's just on the DE screenshot that it seems weird.

When you're a triggered snowflake and can't keep politics out even in game discussions.

It's because colour balance is overall warm on the original, but on the DE it's only skin.

Some neat changes in Cafe Robina! 

  • Proper lighting
  • Real time shadows
  • Edited models with no edged polys sticking out
  • Reflections on the floor
  • New texturing (some PBR)

Wait a second! On this screen Tommy doesn't have buttons on his shirt, and most importantly, he has fixed sleeves. Soo... why is his model on this screen different? Will his in-game model be different from that used in cutscenes? Or maybe this confirms my theory that trailers and screens are a mish-mash of different beta versions of the game.
