You can get up to 5 items, one per every 2 bars you buy. The first one is poo poo. The next two are decent armors with 2 slots, and are competitive up to mid-game. The last two items are accessories- one that gives you Reprieve once per fight, I think (so you survive with 1 HP left), and the last one reduces all elemental damage, and could be situationally useful throughout the game.

This is exactly what I needed and couldnít find with 20 mins of googling

Thank you.

About 3-4 hours in farting around, and drat it takes time to get going

This game really really punishes you for trying to mash buttons, and Iím glad. Combat is interesting and about what i expected. Feels a lot like Crisis Core for sure

Ohh gotcha! Wasnít sure if you posted little quips without spoilers or something. Definitely going to thumb through once i finish binging this week.

How long did it take yíall taking your time? Iím no completionist, but not in a rush. The game does seem very linear? Is that only the beginning?

whatís the run down with weapon proficiency again? i think i skipped the pop-up on accident

they were all linked, or? do i benefit from getting 100% with every weapon? i guess i'm asking if there's any weapons worth not using

this game is great and i'm having fun. not entirely sure what i expected: but as a huge fan of Crisis Core, it feels very similar.

If you are still in chapter 14 you can do the box mini game and spam the weapons abilities there you will get the proficiency really quickly. That chapter is really good because the enemies are easy and you can max all the current weapons very quickly.

Just got here! Thanks for the heads up. Looks to be a long chapter

Barely 1/4 through the game, haven't played in forever. Wanted to boot it up on my PS5. Gonna do a playthrough, then newgame+ after the PS5 update June 10th (plus yuffie DLC)

Any settings to tweak, or general gameplay tips? Was everyones newgame+ playthrough longer? I've heard people say it's scaled well, and is when you play the "real" game.

Ohh I'm further along than I remembered. Getting back into the groove.

Schwartzcough posted:

Some gameplay tips have been discussed recently, in this thread I think. Basically:
- Don't rely on dodging to avoid damage. It has no i-frames and is generally not good for avoiding attacks, but sometimes can be useful for repositioning (or, like, taking Cloud quickly out of Punisher mode).
- Instead, learn to block. It reduces damage a lot, raises your ATB gauge, and is much more reliable for staying alive than dodging.
- Also, when the character you're controlling gets targeted by enemies, switch to a different character. It pays to switch often and get in an attack combo, then switch again. This boosts ATB on your whole team and tends to help avoid damage (the AI enemies only really focus on your current character, and your AI allies are very good at blocking and taking reduced damage). It help mimic the "turn-based" feel of the original as you'll be swapping to each character in turn to attack and use abilities.
- Use Cloud's Punisher mode to counter physical enemies that are otherwise hard to hit (speedy enemies, shielded enemies, etc.). But defending in Punisher mode does not reduced ranged or magic damage, so keep that in mind.

Newgame+ is pretty well balanced, in that you can generally go into NG+ right from when you finished the Normal mode and do fine. It helps to have been thorough in your first playthrough in collecting materia and weapons, so if you missed stuff you can use chapter select after beating the game to go re-do stuff in Normal mode if you want.

I'd say NG+ is probably faster overall, since you don't have to worry about collecting consumables or weapons/armor if you got them already in the first run, and you can speed through or skip cutscenes if you just watched them in Normal mode.

Really good tips & info thanks! I definitely have been rolling around like Dante in DMC, ngl. I'll try to block more. I think i've been using punisher mostly correctly, by your definition. Haha

Aside from changing the camera settings so it's pulled back more, I can't remember having to fiddle around with any of the settings.

double checked that I did this! Pro-tip for sure

New game is for the story, NG+ on hard is if you enjoyed the combat system and want to use everything it lets you do

hmm, I am liking the combat. I may do NG+ on hard then after the PS5 update.

Go into the menus and find the shortcut button options for the characters. Set your favorite moves, spells, etc to specific buttons so you can chain them quickly and easily, action game style.

Square store and Gamestop have it for $70, with a steelbook case. The yuffie DLC is a separate DLC code with those. Gonna order that for the case & code, and sell the physical copy.

That loving Sned posted:

https://blog.playstation.com/2021/02/25/final-fantasy-vii-remake-intergrade-arrives-on-ps5-june-10-2021/

I think so, if you already bought FFVIIR physically or digitally on PS4 youíll get the PS5 upgrade for free, but youíll need to buy the Yuffie DLC. If you got it through PS+ youíll have to pay a bit for the PS5 upgrade.

I wonder if there will be a physical PS5 version. Just curious if theyíre able to use UHD Blu-ray Discs for games.

well, they're marketing it in a PS5 case with the PS5 label, but, not saying that means it's not just a rebranded ps4 game.

and everyone was like "hey so cool y'all remaking it?"

"lol no it was just a tech demo guys! wow why would you have taken it so serious., lol idiots. We cannot remake FF7 because we'd have to remake it from the ground up"

"ok and?"

look, I loving loved FF7 on PS1. It was a transformative experience. I have plans to get a FF7 Meteor tattoo. Our family friend showing me the knights of the round table summon and piquing my early interest into nerdy poo poo will always be a memory. But jesus, they shoved that lovely PS1 port down our throats every console generation, and on PC

at no point do I ever want to replay that game lmao, better left in nostalgia/memory. I'd be hard pressed to even tell anyone it was a good game. Nothing aged well.
