Ja, I too really preferred the randomosity and... Couldn't they have achieved the same streamlining effect without making it seem like they're giving preferential treatment to the shops you spend gCa$h in? cat_sad
I liked the randomness of it as well. It was rather fun trying to guess where you would end up while the page was loading.
And is it just me, or does La Victoire look a bit shabby when compared to Club Verge and Mecha Neko? I think the shop could use a face lift, and it wouldn't be a bad idea to switch out the items in the window. None of the items in La Victoire's store front are available for purchase anymore.
In fact, quite a few of the gold shops could use a bit of a makeover too.
Me too! cat_blaugh I often liked wondering where I was going to land! cat_xd
To be honest... The old colour scheme for La Victoire made it seem a bit more high-end, but... The new has always seemed a bit shabby... Then again... Club Verge doesn't even look like a shop front as much as it looks like something out of VH... So... I feel like that it is hard to compete with it in the sense that one is trying to look like a store while the other... Isn't cat_confused
As for MechNeko... I dunno what to say... Its always had a sort of shabbiness to it, but I think, in context that it is probably located in Aekea, it would make perfect sense that it looks the way it does (while La Victoire is on the Isle of Gambino, the so shabbiness is very unexpected) cat_sweatdrop
Club Verge looks like a three story night club where the celebrities hang out to do celebrity things and avoid the flashing cameras of the paparazzi while Mecha Neko looks like a massive anime-themed specialty store where you can find vinyl dolls for even the most obscure series. La Victoire on the other hand looks like a downtown boutique that was once very hip and happening but has suffered a loss in popularity over the years that is shown by its un-updated store front and fading paint job.
Although that's probably just my wild imagination running away with me again, heh heh... sweatdrop
