What they really should have done is give it the remaster treatment FF8 is getting.


WHUT!?!?!
I had to Google this news.
www.eurogamer.net...



This pleases me to no end. VIII was the bee's knees.

I thought I saw at e3 that you could put it in tactical mode and play it turn based like old school.

IF not, I don't think I'd want it.


Not exactly the way I understood it. It sounds to me like the battle system will be real time with an Active Time Battle meter filling up during the real time battles. The speed the timer fills up with will be dependent on the damage you take and the damage you inflict. Once the ATB meter is full, you can switch to tactical mode, slowing down the combat to something closer to turn based and opening the ability to pull off some special attacks. It sounds to me like they are actually implementing the Limit Break meter, renaming it the ATB meter to lull old school fans into thinking the game is the remake we've been dreaming of, and then modifying the Limit Break system to allow for multiple attacks and actions off a meter that previously would have resulted in a single limit break attack before having to refill before it could be used again.

I'm presently replaying the "original" on the XBONE. The nostalgia is there, but damn... the game currently looks good from far but far from good in hindsight. Throw in the port's tendency to crash to the XBONE home screen periodically (Everyone's freeze point seems to be different... my game froze the first half dozen times I tried to leave the Mythril Mines to the overworld map, both to the Chocobo Ranch/Midgar serpent side and to the Junon side, whereas I've read others had repeated crashes in Midgar itself and one poor bastard's game kept crashing when Cloud did his victory celebration after a battle.) I'm not as excited about a remake of the game as I thought I was during the decade+ when we were begging for a remake and constantly being told "Hell no" by Square.

Two parts and four CDs or more per game. The last game that was two cds was the new red dead game.

Ah! Well see, if it was a remaster, then ya wont be worth it.

But if they actually have content to justify all that. Then I will buy it. Who knows about these other chumps. Probably just mad because its not coming on PC. Once again the glorious PC master race will likely get it some 5 years down the line. After at least a few million people do a twitch stream of the games.

You know also around and about the time they may decide to do a remake on of the Final Fantasy VII remake.

There just jealous that they get every good thing last, and it cost less then there video cards. I mean when was the last good PC game, freaking Half Life, and there still waiting on a sequel to that.

But you know since the hardware upgrades and changes so much, it will never happen because by the time that happens they would need to completely rehall the game-engine to suit the tastes of the PC master race and there shiny new gear. In fact there not even getting a remake of half life any time this century.

Ohh! To bad, so sad.

I don't mind if they expand and make other remakes as long as the content is good. Ff7 has been expanded quite a bit already with movies and games

You knew you were going to, and so is everybody on this dam thread that says they dont want it now because eww its got action, and they miss those blocks for hands that the characters had in the original.

In fact I am all for this remake now. Though I probably wont pre order it, ill just pick it up when it comes out. I cant even remember the last game I preordered.

Unless this is still included in the remake and you can revive her...

Actually you would be surprised how many people never played FF7. In fact this game will sell just as much for those who never played the game as those who did. So ya, there will be more then a few who do not know Aerith will die.

But that is going to be on the second part of the game, which is supposed to be two cds as well. Though by now, even they would have heard that spoiler.

I vaguely remember the church scene. And remember people talking about it that you can make her image stay longer if you complete certain things and get certain items.

I never bothered, and always thought the whole scene was more a memory scene even if she hanged around longer instead of just diapering like that.

Not sure what the say on the whole vid you linked though. Does seem like a hack, either by the original makers, or something somebody added latter on.

Even there convo, is a bit off. Aerith never said "Yo!" Or "lets roll homie!" It was not in the original dialog for her that I can think off at all. Almost sounds like something Barret would say though.

I dont think Aerith will come back. Even with things like Advent Children movie shes dead, the whole story and plot after kind of revolves around her dying which is like half the motivation of the whole party to go after Sephiroth. But if they make a zombie Aerith as a spoof or cheat. Would be interesting.

This is true, but if certain other tasks were done in a specific order you didn't just get an extended scene with dialog.
The dialog is different. Then if the user switched the controller from one port to another more dialog appeared. After that Aerith would actually rejoin the party for the rest of the game!

And it wasn't a hack, but might be something the developers left in as a bit of a joke. Since the method to revive her is quite complicated, it was unlikely anyone would discover it by accident, as the 20+ years to discover it testifies. They also needed clues (from a squaresoft employee) to find this out. I haven't tried this as i don't have a psx or ps2.

The video is only 6 mins - check it out (or just view from 4:30 to see the resurrection scene)

Since i'm not going to get a ps4 i'm not going to find out if anything like this is still included (let alone play the remastered version), at least not until the PC version comes along and I don't think that's going to happen anytime soon....unfortunately...
