lol the guy is so pretentious, he made a survival game and think this is something "new". And I used to love his work, MGS3 is my favorite game of all times... but man, ever since MGS4 Kojima is clearly declining on all aspects. A delusional 50 years old man who never grew up with too much power on his hands, the result will be something laughable (for better or worst) to say the least. Dead babies, necrophilia, etc... If we could drug a underaged girl and grump her in Peace Walker, imagine the incredible new features of Death Stranding?

@gargungulunk: Eras makes no difference. Sorcerers can disguise their age as much as they want. And witchers have a very long life-spam. Geralt is almost 100 years old, Vesemir is what... 400 years old or something? Yen is also 100 years old and so on.

@ormgaard: Yen *** Say it right, lol It's not enough already to have this ugly actress portraying her. I wont disagree that beauty is something subjective, but we do have standards. Described as a early 30's eastern european "strong" woman stereotype, beautiful but still with some little imperfections here and there, short, etc.. Yen is not a super model or anything, but she definitely look waaaay prettier than most (especially in a middle-ages scenario). They hired a actress who have none of that. Too young, looks like from middle-east descent, etc.. I hate it man, hate it... I am hoping she at least has the personality and a very strong screen presence. Which was way harder to find than a beautiful actress. That can justify her presence.. if not, this will be a complete failure.

@jsprunk: The butt chin could be disguised by a mighty beard. But this is based on the books, Geralt despises facial hair. A real shame.

@ganondorf77: That's the major issue indeed.

@Wraith3: I am a book lover, but I kinda disagree, lol dark fantasy middle-ages, right? You would left a SILVER sword in your horse? With all the thievery going on? People were definetely desperate enough to rob a witcher. And geralt is a poor fucker, he has no money to buy another one lol

@spacemedafighterx: Never heard about Ivana, but she definitely look prettier... Thing is, I was not against this actress the first time they revealed her, let's give her a chance. Strong presence and charisma are the major traits of Yen at the end of the day, the looks are a strong trait as well but not the major one... But man, she looks so ugly, it's hard to swallow (no pun intended), lol I still remember a moment from the novels were she is about to enter a big city (Novigrad, perhaps? I don't remember) with Ciri... After a long trip and shit. She does a little makeup magic and look beyond gorgeous (words of the author). Ciri is mesmerized and inspired by her, the guards also, etc.. It's all a fake out, but that's the charm of the sorcerers in this world (and fantasy in general), they use magic to deceive and etc.. but man, I can't see this actress doing this scene. Much of the feminine side of Ciri is inspired by Yen, I just can't see this ugly creature inspiring anyone. That sounds mean, but it's my honest opinion. Looks matter, especially when a character has this as a trait. Triss will be another nightmare, her natural red hair is envied by all the other sorcerers and etc.. But they hired a black girl to do the job. Goddamn, just stay loyal to the source material. If it is sexist or not, who cares, it's there. If LOTR was made today, the "beauty" of the elves would be replaced because ugly women needs to be included. **** that, fantasy is fantasy. If I want to see a ugly woman I go out on a subway trip.
