Thoughts on Nestor

IMO the hat is fine, but the face looks really weird, hope they fix it.

Re: Thoughts on Nestor

oh.

i hadn't even seen anything about Nestor. i just looked it up and

oh

for starters i could really do without the hat. that's ... why? second, the face does look weird, but i can't pinpoint exactly why it looks weird. maybe it's that his snout is smaller.


... why did they change his wing color? that's so random.

Re: Thoughts on Nestor

It's not really a random change.  I don't think its fair to judge it based on the half second shot we got without understanding the context.  If Nestor had a hat in the original but didnt in the remaster, people would be saying the same thing.  I don't think it really matters.  I challenge people to not let things like Nestor's hat be something that's going to keep you from enjoying the game, because its just really silly.  There were a lot of dragons in the original that were kind of lame, but they never kept me from enjoying the game.  #Hatslivesmatter

Re: Thoughts on Nestor

The hat is definitely strange, and I'm not sure I like it, but I don't mind it that much. I'll especially be happy if they explain it at some point, like if he has it because of being an Artisan or whatever.

As for his face, I'm a little more concerned. To me, it kinda makes him look more like a camel than a dragon... But I can live with it if they're going for more unique appearances for all the different dragon families. If that's what Artisans look like though, it will only reafirm my personal thoughts that Spyro doesn't fit well as an Artisan.

Re: Thoughts on Nestor

Nestor looks like a horse. Don't like his design at all. But I can get over it if that is indeed the final design.

Re: Thoughts on Nestor

There's nothing wrong with the hat, and this is all still early footage. If the N. Sane Trilogy proved anything, it's that developers listen to fan feedback. Let's just wait and see.

Re: Thoughts on Nestor

Can someone please link a picture of this because I tried Googling and couldn't find any actual images of the new Nestor.

Re: Thoughts on Nestor

The attire makes sense since Nestor is an Artisan, and Artisans wear turban, gauntlets, and jewelry.

And Artisan dragons provide other dragons with artifacts of culture and beauty in the forms of songs, sculptures, and poetry.

Re: Thoughts on Nestor

The hat and other accessories don't bother me. In fact, I think clothing is a neat addition as it has the potential to make each dragon more unique. The thing that bothers me though is the structure of his face. His horns are also super tiny. I actually like what they did with the rest of him though. His wings, hands, and legs all look better in my opinion.

Re: Thoughts on Nestor

Thanks riverhippo. I guess his face looks a little funny, but I agree about the hat and jewelry making sense for an Artisan. I think people are mostly memeing when they complain about this, but yeah I don't really see the big deal.

Re: Thoughts on Nestor

I think what they've done is drawn inspiration from other games outside the original trilogy. In this case I think they drew inspiration from Spyro: A Hero's Tail. Nestor's accessories look strikingly similar to the accessories worn by the dragon elders in that game:

If that's the case, then perhaps they might have a few other carry-overs from other games outside the original trilogy? Who knows?

Re: Thoughts on Nestor

I tend to think a lot of additions, such as a the gorget neck pieces on those dragons, are more just common artist depictions of these kinds of creatures being anthropomorphic.  The princesses in MLPFiM have these too, which tells me its more of just an easy way to illustrate status on a character without making them wear full clothing.  Let's just hope we don't get this:

Re: Thoughts on Nestor

I'm wondering if they'll only put such accessories on the first dragons you release in each homeworld, or if they'll be on most or all of the other dragons as well.

Like what riverhippo said about it being a 'status' thing, the first dragon of each homeworld is supposed to be the leader of that dragon race, so the hat and apparel may just be for that world's leader and such.

Just shooting in the dark of course. Won't know till it's release.

Re: Thoughts on Nestor

Those artisan hats are kinda strange looking, but the more I think about it, the less it concerns me.  And I think other articles in other areas wouldn't be so strange.  Imagine the dragons in Icy Cavern all wearing earmuffs.  Maybe the Magic Crafters all wearing capes.  And Cleetus in Twilight Harbor could be wearing military uniform, complete with camo face paint.

Re: Thoughts on Nestor

I didn't even notice the turban getup in the trailer. Guess I'm not super opposed to that kind of aesthetic thing as long as the games maintain that original fun vibe

Re: Thoughts on Nestor

I guess with Reignited Trilogy and it's updated graphics they'll add looks that reflect the world, for Artisans, Beast Makers, Dream Weavers ECT.

Re: Thoughts on Nestor

So Canadian Guy Eh made a video sleuthing on the possibility that the dragon seen was not Nestor, but another dragon loaded into Nestor's place.  I clicked on the video assuming I would disagree, but he convinced me that it's not actually Nestor.

Re: Thoughts on Nestor
