Not hyped. I love FFVII because it's one of the first RPGs I remember playing and all of the charm comes from the blocky characters, pre rendered backgrounds, etc. I like it because it's a product of its time and remaking it to cash in on nostalgia is lame. So much of that game seemed cool when it was being processed through the imagination of an 11 year old. Going through it today fully voiced dialog and a bunch of cutscenes will probably make it cringe inducing.

VIII is better than VII anyway. Tweak it so you get more from Draws and get an editor to hack at the script and it'd be a masterpiece.

The FF IOS releases look terrible though. The sprites look like they're from a flash game but the backgrounds are still pixel art. It's weird.

Honestly Final Fantasy 7 getting remade will be wonderful cuz it will show everyone just how f****** stupid it was and we'll see a bunch of dumbass nerds have conniption fits over it

Also if I know squaresoft they will fix everything except for the translation problems, you know like the most problem

If you're drawing magic you're a sucker, just convert cards and items. The game is extremely broken and it's great.

Fixing draws is to make it more accessible to people who have touched a boob in their life and thus don't have time for all that.

Posting from my Samsung Galaxy Note 7

I played this game from start to finish as a kid and I seriously can't recall a single loving detail about it. I know there were thetans or some poo poo that made magic and the one chick gets killed like a third of the way through the game cause she had too many thetans like the villain dude did.

Will get a lot of flak for this, but final fantasy 4/2 north american version. is the one that should have been remade in 4k/3d/bellsandwhistles. Its basically star wars. but medieval.

its because the plot of the game is absurd nonsense, you're not meant to understand it. only reason it exists is to tie together cool fantasy-industrial backgrounds to fight weird monsters in.

They did that except on the DS so the graphics are kinda ugly and battles run at 15fps, even after they ported it to mobile and Steam.

Anyway the FF7 remakes no big deal to me because I seriously doubt well see it anytime soon if ever. SE is still struggling to get their poo poo together in making big budget games in less than five years. Hell, nobody knew who was even directing the thing until they asked around and settled on Nomura or whoever, and that was after they loving announced it.

Nothing in Jurassic World is natural, we have always filled gaps in the genome with the DNA of other animals. And if the genetic code was pure, many of them would look quite different. But you didn't ask for reality, you asked for more teeth.


Cloud looks anorexic in the remake.

What is there about IV that makes it like Star Wars? If any FF is a Star Wars copy, it's XII.

Anyway, FFVII remake has the potential to be an amazing game, but not in the context of it being made by modern day Square Enix.

I couldn't deal with X's writing. It seemed like each character was dumb as hell in their own special way. Tidus was an airhead, yuna was dangerously naive, bender was a racist dipshit, kimahri was a special boy, ect. I could not finish it.

If there's more than one way to do a job, and one of those ways will result in disaster, then he will do it that way.


Even amongst the elite troops of SOLDIER, Sephiroth is known to be the best. His past is locked away in a confidential file held at Shinra, Inc. His giant sword, which only he can handle, has extremely destructive power. Said to have disappeared in a battle years ago, his current whereabouts are unknown.

Tidus was from another world and so understandably doesn't understand Spira's customs, Yuna isn't actually naive but only pretends to be in order to "fake it until she makes it" by going on a holy quest to kill herself to buy her people a brief reprieve from Sin, Bender is a racist but has an arc where he learns everything he taught about the Al Bhed was a lie, and Kimahri is indeed a special boy.

But yeah, I'll cop that the writing ain't the strongest and is especially bad in the beginning.

It's a loose fit, but the storys there. Guy seeks redemption to become a paladin/jedi, dark side always tempting, father/son thingy. The main evil dude in the original was emperor palpatine but an alien. you fight an evil empire full of puppets. You meet a diversity of people/religions to fight the evil.

It really is star wars.

But Star Wars wasn't about a bad guy turned good guy seeking redemption. It was about a kid in the desert getting swept into a giant war. A space pirate and his furry friend provide transportation.
