i noticed this group was rather silent, so i figured i'd start a discussion :o
silver's appearance got a sort of makeover for HGSS (if you haven't seen him yet, look here). what do you think? did you like his old look better, or this one?
i haven't got a problem with his clothes, but his hair really bugs me. it was fine the way it was; now he looks like mars.
His hair point makes him look like a twat a pansy. I mean, he's still a total badass, as he's Silver, but he just doesn't look as... imposing? As evil? As rouge like? I don't know. His older design looked more like an anti-hero, his new one makes him look more soft.
If old Silver and new Silver were different people, I think it would be something like this, and this.
Also, look at his artwork, then his sprite
His sprite hasn't got the hair point, from what I can see.
Also, I like the fact in his newer design he's taller and thinner, makes him more sinister, but the hair point... ._. So... ugh.
Yeah, I agree. I like the old design better. He kind of just looks like a mischievious little boy now, intead of that creepy guy that, well, creeps you out. And his new sprite reminds me of Lucian.
i have a bad feeling he's not going to kick girls in the beginning of the game like he did in GSC, either. :( and he'll probably be nicer.
something tells me they changed his hair because someone was all 'zomg boy with long hair! bad/gay/girlboy/etc!!!', but then there's lucian to consider. P:

I'm going to rage if he's more of a nice guy in the remakes, rather than the old, more sinister Silver.
I know! I hated the whole 'friendly rivals' thing. If he's your rival, he should act somewhat competitive.
seriously, if they're going to redo his personality, too, they might as well make a whole new character rather than completely change an old one. D:
I think his new design is smexy. ;D
I used to dislike the cowlick, but I'm used to it now. Eh, I consider the remakes people's designs counterparts rather than the exact same person. Like RBGY Red and FRLG Red. Not counterparts in the anime-mangas sense, but in a different incarnation sense.
Nevermind. That was way too confusing. :P I doubt they'll change his personality, remember the scan said "he looks tough" and he looks like an asswhole too.
I admit, his new design does look rather sinister, it's just the hair-point that makes him look like... as my boyfriend put it, a twat. D:
Silver still has the best appearance out of all the Rivals. I personally think his new look is teh über winzors, if you'll excuse the stab at Internet slang.
And I seriously doubt his personality will be changed in any way. He just wouldn't be Silver without Silver's sinister mannerism. He's the only Rival character who has a truly menacing aura about him.
