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.
 

Good find, I have a feeling this might have been the beta version. Can't wait till 11th to find out.

I hope for some gameplay trailer from a more current version. This is something that can actually make me decide to buy this Trilogy.

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 

Also, why did the sign grow in size?

This isn't 2021 where every company's sign is massive, it's the 80's

Me, since I spent about 6 hours in Blender trying to make a cool render to imagine what the place would look like with better and proper lighting. LMAO

Actually the signs in the 80s Were bigger, now everything is minimalistic and monochromatic, back then everything was big and loud, I don't get your logic.

Let’s see it, King.

 

RE: Tommy’s gut size - as far as I remember he wasn’t exactly trim, he had that typical average build. Maybe they’ve slightly overdone it just because of the shirt, Hawaiian shirts were oversized as a norm in the 80’s

He isn't malnourished CJ thin, but the idea that he had some massive gut that his shirt stuck to is something a teenager would say in a video essay to justify this sh*t. The shirt isn't glued to his body in the original because wind existed.

jesus christ, can we get a thing started like what happened to sonic in the movie? 

 

color or not, his face is all wrong, forehead too flat, nose too striaght, no gap between his forehead and nose, hair too clean 

Oh, I remember this! And the end result is a LOT better than the original trailer one, so that's a positive sign.

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!

In that case, I have a feeling that the Tommy phone call screenshot is taken after one of the devs made Tommy eat a bunch of pizzas in Vice Point.

If they've changed him this much, might as well add an option to do aerobics in front of the television at the hotel room, have Jane Fonda do a cameo. Go all in.

For some reason, not all GTA:VC screenshots feature the same buildings and details:

 

Screenshot:

Trailer:

No vegetation in the screenshot but there is in the trailer. This gives me hope that there is more work left and that the trailer is actually improving on things.

Tommy is the most butchered character in the remaster honestly..just embarrassing but I didn't expect more from the devs who made the sh*tty SA mobile port

I respect your opinion but the overall look is now definitely more HD or at least Fortnite-esque (is that a good or bad thing idk but it looks cleaner):

Sure it looks more HD..the original is 19 years old. They could have kept the original model but improved on it instead of getting rid of it in favour of this cartoon replacement who doesn't look badass or even Italian

I don't care if it looks more HD.

They CHANGED the physical appearance of the character to the point where he is not recognisible anymore.  Imagine replacing Al Pacino in Scarface with some random mediterranean type. It's not the same movie anymore !!

Also notice, how in the remastered everything is always overly clean. The old bike model had somewhat darker/dirtier textures applied to them. I don't know what the motive was behind that back then, if they tried to mimic shadows or what, but it was a recognisible style of Vice City. It's gone now.

I agree!

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?!


I think what I’m getting at requires further explanation and that’s my fault.

 

Because obviously the visual changes made to this upcoming release have been met with an abundance of criticism especially on here, the complaints tend to get lumped in together.  Saying the confederate flag being removed from Phil’s shirt is to the game’s detriment in the same breath as Tommy looks Indian, it’s disconcerting.   In the same way as saying the night lighting in Vice Beach looks bad in the same breath as saying as Tommy looks Indian—is looking Indian bad?  If maybe people articulated it as “Tommy doesn’t like he’s suppose to” I wouldn’t notice.  That’s all y’all.

Experience taught us that games which comes from Rockstar, will not be the same as  their trailers.

 

They even change the protagonist model after screenshots and trailers so hopefully there is still room of improvements.

 

Grove street games has half a month to fix bugs, changing models and etc

If you're an actual person - no, if you're supposed to be an approximation of this: 

Spoiler

I would definitely have to answer with: "yes".

 

Now, like I said: I personally think they made him appear too central european (or "white"), rather than "indian", but the bottom line is:

Don't you think you might be projecting more prejudice into the usage of the word "indian" than intended? I for one haven't seen any anti - indian rhetoric in this forum.

(Then again, the last few hours have been sh*tposting galore, so something might have flown under my radar...)

Quality wise, the remasters seem all over the place. There has to be something to the whole "different build stages"-talk, or maybe it's just my copium taking effect.
