I know next to nothing about the older games but I was pretty irritated about the sword maiden’s new outfit. A freaking tough battle girl with a gigantic cutout of her stomach, yeah that makes sense. The outfit could have still been sexy without the cutout, heck I own it and wear a bodysuit under it and then an armored outerwear. It has great potential if you mess with it but unfortunately the NPC is stuck with the untouched design and I think it majorly sucks like that.
As for variety, that’s what makes the game fun. They should be appealing to everyone because everyone is in some capacity capable of opening their wallet someday and a full, active game is s healthy game! Right now I feel like they just barely appeal to me. The freaking cute-incarnate player who only mains really cute and really modest things. I would love more billowy “princess”-like dresses but oh look another set of pasties or another outfit with plumber buttcrack! It’s getting old, I want to see more stuff.
