Final Fantasy VII Remake


Recommended Posts

My faith in this has been very slightly restored with the new trailer and the evidence to suggest that you can use materia and go around talking to people.

 

It all seems a bit too po faced and emo for some of the goofier stuff, however.

 

I wonder how much that first class edition is...

 

Edit: $329, apparently :rolleyes:

So what's the deal? It's only midgar only? No episodic games?

 

Surely it would say episode 1 if there were going to be more.

 

Square have confirmed in interviews that it's still episodic and that this is episode 1 which focuses on Midgar exclusively.

Cool okay - i guess not having episode 1 on the box is a bit confusing.

 

Problem is i recall reading that a large percentage of players don't finish RPGs. So what happens when episode 2 comes out? I wouldn't bother buying it, unless i finished the previous part - especially if you need your save file to progress.

Then that's bullshit then because how is it on two discs then? That's a massive game for Midgar which wasn't a huge portion of the game. Then to charge $300+ for a special edition in which you only get a third of a game is taking the piss.

I'd be willing to make a wager this project never even manages to get to stuff like the snow town after your average punter has had their fill after Midgard and subsequent chapters are diminishing returns.

I look forward to playing this (and even enjoying it!), then waiting 18 months for part two, then when it finally comes out, it's Kalm (including the Nibelheim flashback), then the Chocobo Farm and the Midgar Zolom. And that's it. Another 18 months till part 3! Which is cancelled due to poor sales of part 2.

As some people have said before, the initial Midgar section may be the best part of the game. Its the part i remember the most.

 

I'm a little more optimistic after the trailer, but the episodic nature is going to be torture.

I think it looks wicked. I've long said that they should do something different gameplay-wise, because if I want to play FFVII as I remember it I already have a wealth of options. Give me the same story and characters but a new experience and I'm way more interested.

Midgar to Kalm might be the best section of the game, but part of that is because it's a perfectly paced 6-8 hours. It's a nice opening act to establish the characters, factions and world, setting up the more typical RPG structure that follows. I can't see it as a standalone game, and it looks like it'll be padded out with pointless plot and character details and a battle system that will drag after a while, as you slash away with that massive sword doing chip damage to build up any kind of effective attack.

 

I'm back to thinking this looks like a complete wrong turn.

The problem is that they're clearly not doing that. They've been working on it for years and all they've come up with is a Midgar section that for some reason they've massively changed and fleshed out. There's no chance in hell that they're going to be doing the entire original game with all its areas and plot points. I think huge swathes of the original are going to be drastically re-worked, or cut entirely.

It's a long time since I've played FF7, so I could be shaky on the details, but I'm almost 100% sure there's a bit with a Lion thing that's basically Simba's dad out of the Lion King and he turns to stone and then the stone lion cries a single sparkly tear.

 

They could cut that.

 

I'd be fine with it.

Does this mean that they will cut out the part where Cloud batters Aeris in the temple of the ancients, or where Cid is a complete prick to Shera?

 

There's no way it'll ever get that far - Part 7 - Temple of the Ancients and Gongaga!

I think the battle system looks great and I love what they've done with it.  The Midgar bit of the original is some of the best stuff of the game and I'm sure whatever this game will be, I'm gonna love. Just that if you call it Final Fantasy 7 remake, you remake the whole game. I don't want to be in my 40s waiting for the whole game to come out.

I keep thinking how weird it is that the in-game graphics are now better than both the pre-rendered sequences in the original and maybe even in the Advent Children film thingy.
