Grave? Shovel! Let's go.



I was hoping the demo would make me like Barrett.

Nope. He’s still a dumb character, even after all these years. I’m bored of “tough rear end in a top hat” but at least he’s not a Mr. T stereotype as much.

FFVII remake demo got me wanting more - what's the best way to play FFVII these days? Native install on Steam, some mods, or the PS4 version?

PS4 or PC is fine. With the speed up hacks either way.

On PC you can mod it to use the battle models on the overworld which I like. You can also mod in advent children models but it doesn't match the game's style.

The demo is what I wanted really, a full HD reimagining of a rapidly aging classic. If it keeps up this level of polish all the way through its a winner.

I like video games

If you care about portability but don't have a Switch but do have a PSP (which I'm sure applies to more than just me) the PSP downloadable version is also quite good.

A golden helix streaked skyward from the Helvault. A thunderous explosion shattered the silver monolith and Avacyn emerged, free from her prison at last.

I for one am disappointed he wasn't voiced by Mr. T.

Mostly though probably no one on the dev team remembers Mr. T.

Well, the demo has me wanting much more. Now to sit and wait. At least the delay put it right before by birthday, and I've already locked in getting it as a present.

Pro tip. Go into options and set the camera distance in battle as far as possible. It doesn't make a huge difference but it's definitely better.

Kicked loving rear end, can't wait for the full game. The combat is definitely still in the same spirit, but much more involved right from the word go. It takes a while for the combat to get interesting in the original.

Really enjoyed the demo. Basically all I want from a ff7 remake.

Combat system works better than XV, although I find it a bit frustrating that you can queue up an action like using a potion, only to get hit and lose your AT bar but not do anything. I guess I can just use abilities a bit slower and run away from the enemy before healing, but that just seems lame. Would be cooler IMO if you could keep the pace flowing faster, but we'll see how it plays out with more complex battles.

About halfway through Barrett's elevator speech, I went from lukewarm on the voice actor and decision to have him act like Barrett X to being fully on board. By the end of it he literally sounds like a preacher, and Clouds "get help" is perfectly delivered

They really really did good on the voice cast so far

Played through again on Classic

I wish Classic weren't tied to Easy because it's definitely too easy, but it's also interesting because you still can control who is targeting who and activate triangle modes etc, so I'd really like the option to at least try Classic with Normal difficulty

After a battle this time, Barret sung the victory theme lol

How many Moogle collectibles are there? I only found 1

Seriously that was so good

By the end I'd really gotten into the rhythm of the combat and there's so much room for depth later on, and the controls are super intuitive. Much better than FF15

Good to hear this, a combat system with some depth is essential in JRPGs, unfortunately XV had none. Downloaded the demo for tonight.

You get an extra little cutscene if you pick the 20 minute option.

It’s the Sephiroth in the flames cutscene.

Thanks. I must have misread. I thought it was the other option. I'm gonna go play it again.

This demo is everything I hoped for. I am so hype for the full release.

The increased focus on that part of the scene makes me wonder if later there will be a flashback that shows she was running because she actually saw something

Success!





I found four moogle medals :shrug:

I love the chatter between Barret and Cloud, especially once you get into the tail laser phase of it when Barret starts getting sarcastic.

And I'm all in on Barret. It really comes off like he's a WWE wrestler cutting a promo to try and impress Cloud in the elevator. A few snippets of convo seem like there's 'regular Barret' and his 'super tough Avalanche leader act'.

And paraphrasing a bit:
"So what're you, twenty-something?"
"First. Soldier ranks don't go up to the twenties.
"I meant your age."
:allears:

They changed a pretty big thing from the original so I dunno how they'll deal with the environmental message.

There was one point where Barret looked at Cloud very obviously "Did you see how cool I was?!", and then looking somewhat disappointed when Cloud apparently couldn't give less of a poo poo if he tried. That was pretty good.

The demo also runs noticeably better on vanilla PS4 than FFXV did, so kudos there.

It's pretty short and not the kind of that you play more than one time, just enjoy the 30 minutes of gameplay
