Final Fantasy VII Remake - Thoughts?

Recommended Posts

Obvious amazing news, especially for anyone who grew up playing the first one. 


 


To be honest, I'm really worried Square will just ruin the battle system making this FF, like so many other recent ones, a chore to play..... #notanff13fan

So I'm new to this site and I was wondering what people thought of the Remake of Final Fantasy VII. To me I'm looking forward to it and I am excited to see what Tetsuya and the rest can do to bring Midgar to life

Honestly, I'm one of those people who have only played the pre Playstation FinalFantasy games so I'm not that excited about it. That being said, I still want to see the updated graphics. I'm not likely to play it though.

Looks awesome! I'm glad they're (apparently) updating the combat system to more of an action rpg style too because I feel it's more engaging. My favorite FF game so far (that I've played) was VII Crisis Core. I'm sure "oldschool", "hardcore" gamers will probably complain non-stop about it, but honestly they can just go play the original. I do hope, however, that they retain all the plot elements of the original and don't skip some stuff that is viewed as silly (like cross dressing Cloud). I don't think they will, but there's always a chance. I think it's gonna be great!

A lot of their more recent FF's have been pretty poor offerings & the only real reason for doing the remake is it's a pretty much assured money maker due to the hype around VII & it's spin off's. I'm interested to see how it does but won't be pre-ordering it straight away. I think they've lost some story & game-play in favour of graphics in previous ones (XIII was a pretty huge disappointment, although Lightning Returns was at-least going the right way). Plus there's the usual hurdle of when does a sequel/remake do better then the original?

 

I'm looking forward to the XV release & the XII re-release though

Cautiously optimistic. I was the perfect age when FF7 first came out, but in hindsight it had some pretty serious narrative jank going on in a lot of places. If they clean that up and jazz the graphics I'll probably check it out.

Cannot be more keen for this, 7 was my favourite game growing up and my favourite final fantasy. Anybody think it will be better than the original?

 

In some ways possibly. Obviously graphics will be better, but when it comes to gameplay it's probably down to personal preference. I like Action RPGs better than turn based, and since it's supposed to be Action RPG gameplay, I'd personally enjoy it more for that aspect. I think the biggest concern is what they'll do to the story. I'm sure the base story won't be altered too much, but many of the side missions and what not could easily be axed and I don't think any fans want this to happen.

Combat is more Kingdom Hearts then Vanilla FF7. AKA Action compared to turnbased like the old style was. I was honestly hoping for the base to be like FFX-2 to be honest and then with the FF7 stuff on top of it but they are completely chanigng the battle system for the remake. I am currently running through the game again using this

That was obviously going to happen. Square Enix has adamantly and vehemently mentioned how against turn-based (in the traditional-sense) combat they are because they feel it's an outdated mechanism that doesn't belong in todays computing world. So it was pretty clear from the get go any full-on remake would see the removal of turn-based combat.

Big fan of the original and enjoyed the spin offs I'm interested in how square enix can remake this with the current technology and how they can improve upon this.

      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.
