Final Fantasy VII Remake - Thoughts?

Recommended Posts

I really wish I could be excited for this... But they went and ruined FFVII. When it comes down to remaking older games, you can't just go and scrub each game of what made them unique and paint them all the same color. The first and most obvious problem here is the removal of FFVII's unique artstyle. Here's what Cloud SHOULD look like. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/G/02/aplusautomation/vendorimages/bb3df4c6-331b-4c68-8d6b-27360a132fa3.jpg._CB305892982_.jpg
But instead, they went for realism. But this is supposed to be FFVII, not FFVIII... Can you imagine if The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD was done with photorealism!?

The second problem is the change in game-play. Each Final Fantasy has its own style. You can't just go and remake each game to use the exact same style. Why would you want 15 identical games?

 

People like FFVII... Why not remake it!?...instead of making a mutated clone. It's not the same game anymore. Just like Mewtwo isn't the same a Mew, and all people wanted was HD Mew. :P

To be honest, I would love to see a cartoony/anime styled Final Fantasy remake so they look closer to the art for it. That being said, the art change really won't bother me much as long as they don't make this a Final Fantasy 15 battle clone since I really hated that in a way. Except  for the two online games, when I think Final Fantasy I think awesome traditional RPGs and not some MMO wannabe or Hack and Slash wannabe.

Took me awhile to find this thread. 😅

 

 

We have a release date everyone.

 

March 3, 2020.

 

What we still don't know, however, is how many 'parts' this is going to take. 😒

 

With our luck, Square will troll us all and it'll take '7' parts... because... you know... Final Fantasy 7. 😑

Yeah it seems even they don't know how many parts, it needs to be two. I just can't see how they would divide up the game post Midgar. I think it looks really great and I'm excited to try it out. Being Square, my expectations are at zero.

Unfortunately, IIRC, The first Midgar part is the very minor beginning of the game. So it's likely going to take more than 2 parts. I want it to only be 2 parts as well but it'll likely take 3-5 parts at minimum, possibly more. 😅

They've already confirmed they vastly expanded the Midgar section. Also from what I've read/understood, it sounds like they cut a substantial amount of original content out such as Honey Bee Inn, Bro's Gym and Don Corneo's Mansion, which also means they cut out the sewers.

 

“Remaking Final Fantasy VII has allowed us to dive much deeper into the world and its characters than ever before,” said producer Yoshinori Kitase. “The first game in this project expands on the story of Midgar and is such an elaborate retelling that it’s become a solid standalone game in its own right.”

Somehow... I'm not surprised at all they cut the cross-dressing section out completely. 😒

I'm currently replaying it. Midgar is the first 10 hours of a 60-90 game. A lot of that time post Midgar is traveling the world, first in a linear fashion and then once you get the Highwind, almost the entire map is open to you. So they either need to make everything linear, remove some of the stuff like Chocobo farming and the ability to get to the secret stuff with the gold Chocobo. I'm just not sure how they would break the game up post Midgar with out making it extremely linear, no grinding and remove a lot of the optional charm that the game had. Either way, I'll be here playing what ever they release because I'm curious and love the original.

I never said that an insignificant detail like the cross-dressing section being removed entirely was going to make me not get it. lol.

 

I also like the original too much not to get the Remake. I also intend on getting it. Probably even pre-ordering it once it gets closer to March. ☺️

I apologize for the double post... but...

 

@Koby I just came across this on PSNProfiles that was apparently on a magazine called Famitsu:

 

"The Honey Bee Inn cross-dressing event is still in. We’ve made it more modern. If we made the facility like we did in the original game, the physical unease would be staggering, so that was no good…"

Oh boy. FF7Remake has a "Classic" option that basically turns the game into a turn-based RPG rather than the normal action game.

 

You'll also be able to equip one summon per character which'll act like a 4th party member controlled by AI, however you can actually use your characters ATB gauge to issue them commands if you desire.

 

I'm actually really excited about the Classic mode being implemented. I wasn't thrilled about it being a generic action game.

      What do you guys think about previous seasons & should there be a 3rd season?
    • By manc4life
      Can anyone recommend me some anime like the following, shows that are mainly comedy with some fantasy elements and stuff. I don't mind slapstick humor. Having a dub is important though.
       
      1. Seto no Hanayome (My Bride is a Mermaid)
       

       
       
      2. Kore wa Zombie ? (Is This a Zombie?)
       
       

       
       
      I have also seen Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou (Demon King Daimao), Hagure Yuusha no Aesthetica (Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero, High School DxD, The Devil is a Part Timer, Baka & Test, Rosario To Vampire so anything other than these shows will do.
       
      I wanted to watch Princess Resurrection if that is any good but i don't see it being rated all that well. So any shows like the first two I've mentioned would be great.
       
      Thank you.

      I very much enjoy action romances and the first season of Yona of the Dawn certainly delivered. Has there been an official announcement of sorts regarding the future of the series? A second season perhaps? Apparently there is enough source material from the manga for the animators to go off of and I would hate it if they chose not to renew the show.

      Has anyone watched this series? It's supposed to have a tie in with Slayers-none of the characters from the former appear all though one who looks a lot like Gourry shows up. It's a good watch in any event.

      I was going to do something more with this but, well, I didn't. Maybe some day a character will wander into my head that can grasp that sword and begin to heal a broken place.
      =============
       
      The world was numb. Sweetly numb. All the arrows that were pierced through him, all the cuts that had made it through his guard, it was all gone. How sweet it was. Smiling, he pushed his sword deeply into the ground and raised his bleeding eyes to those creeping slowly towards him. Creeping like the rats they were. Vermin. Scared. Weak little vermin. But so many. So many. A few more arrows hit him, he felt a few that struck where his armor had fallen away but most twanged away.
       
      It was not pain now. No. Even those arrows that had punctured him anew were nothing. He sneered at the rats around him, his face a bloodied mask. His eyes burning with the pure fury that raged within. Green orbs of hate, glaring, sending cold shivers down their spines.
       
      “Come! Come to me…” His voice wasn’t much more than a rumbling gurgle but the enemy still hesitated. A fatally wounded animal was always the most dangerous. They had him trapped and dying and they all knew it. Yet none wanted to die with him. All had seen what he could do. For those just arriving to this last, standing figure, the ring of bodies around him was proof enough of what awaited them.
       
      What they didn’t know was what he had waiting for them. He was trapped? Ha! They all were. He struggled to stay up right. Something went. A knee? His leg? Either way, he dropped to the ground, holding the sword for balance. Now they came. The cowards. But they came to death. It was time. As far as he could see, they were close enough. They were all in for a big surprise.
       
      “Aphee–” He only had to mumble the word. Not even finish before the dark power began spilling out of him. It was the word. The word to ignite the little blue bubble on the hilt of his sword. One little word. One little sound. He laughed before he could finish as he felt the power seize him. That ragged sound froze them. Too late. The remaining army was too close. They should have sent more men. Ah, if only they had sent their entire Kingdom against him!
       
      His eyes burned with a growing fire even as his life faded. A fire so intense that those close enough took a step back. “Apheena.” Echoed hollowly across all the Kingdoms. A sound that sent livestock running. Nightmares to those that slumbered. Apheena had been her name. His love. His life. When she died, he had died. So many years ago. And now… with that word complete… his sword ignited in full. Blossomed suddenly in its full, deadly glory.
       
      The blue flash could be seen for miles around. Curious men and women stared at the sudden flare. It took time, yet soon enough the polluted wind pushed at the people that were unlucky enough to be outside at the time. None would ever forget it. They couldn’t. It changed them. Deformed a few poor souls. Hurt the hearts of others. The wind was just a touch of the spell that had been used. The wind it threw out was thick with the smell of death and decay and all things foul. All that could touch the magical plane shuddered as the spell twisted and corrupted it. A death spell like no other. One filled with decades, lifetimes, of hate, rage and soul crushing loneliness.
       
      A spell so large, so devastating, it knocked a few seers senseless around the lands. The spell was so powerful and made in such a way that the likes of it had never been triggered before. Or since. The entire magical plane was drained a little that day. Darkened by the death it brought. So much death. Land, air, water. All life in its reach. All gone. It was years before the glow faded. Years more before a group of Magi dared enter the once Kingdom now re-named the Cursed land.
       
      For miles around, there was nothing. No life. Nothing growing. No sound. No sight but flat, black earth. Wind would stir the fine black powder that coated everything. A fine dust of death that never left the boundaries of the Cursed land. It was hard to remember that this once had been a flourishing Kingdom. Once, there had been life. Songs. Happiness. Life. It took them days to reach the slight, sickly throbbing sensation they could feel. The sore spot that all Magi of any type in all the Kingdoms could feel.
       
      They found a strange void. As they neared, they began to make out a shape. It was a sword. Only a sword. No. Not just a sword. Not that throbbing, lonely and lost thing. Not just a sword. The Magi moved about it, testing various spells but nothing could touch it. It stood defiant to all. A gleaming dark beacon. A monument to those countless lives lost in its deadly net. Those lost to its wrath. The Magi stayed as long as they could. Soon, they felt their own magic being pulled, slowly, oh so slowly, into that deathly void around the weapon.
       
      They left as fast as they could. Never to return. Spreading the word of what they’d found. Leaving the sword standing alone and defiant in its empty Kingdom. A symbol of loss so potent that generations yet to come would hear and know and mourn with the sword’s bearer whose name was lost in time.
