When i use Sackgirl, i still see the Sackboy portrait when i am playing, or if i use Deimos (which i don't very often tbh) i will still see Kratos's portrait even though i am not Kratos. I think this needs to be fixed. some may say its not that big of a deal but i think it is, when im playing a girl character and i still see sackboy there =/ kindve lame. Id like a Sackgirl and Deimos portrait. same for any other future dlc that changes the appearence of a character completely.
You change the portraits for characters that have total character changes (Deimos, Sackgirl) then everyone will whine that their character doesn't have a portrait change and then Superbot will have to go and do those too and I'd much rather that time be spent on things that matter, like DLC and balance. So... no.
Lightning is a terrible character. Deal with it. Official Riku of the PASBR board.
I see where you are coming from OP, and I understand it breaks your immersion, but heres my explanation:
When you make portraits for characters cause they are "reskinned chars", you are then confusing people who might not understand this. A portrait for some people is an association as to who that character is and how they play (see League of Legends which has lots of characters).
In other fighting games, say Tekken or Soul C, you can customise your character but they will still display the default image.
Btw laziness is not a good reason to not do something.
