Final Fantasy VII Remake

Recommended Posts

Full on Remake, sweet... Looking at the tagline at the end this looks as if it's going to Xbox as well?.

They better not fuck around with the combat too much, it needs atb.

Well,

I saw yesterday there was talk of an FFVII remake, and I was thinking to myself that really, it's not anything I'd be interested in. I have FFVII on my vita, and I dip into it from time to time, slowly rolling the game forwards.

I watched the trailer, and man, when the few notes hit from the opening of FFVII, I have to admit, I did get excited at the possibility of playing this with a shiny new exterior.

I wonder if my 10 year old daughter would want to play it?

The uprezzed graphics make me think that no is probably the answer, especially when *that* moment in the game happens

I'd imagine that comes this year... Full on Remake in 2017.

So it's no longer just a port of the PC version?

I thought that was already out. Seems not.

I am quite concerned about this remake. I was only half joking with my original comment. FF7 is so styliscally and tonally all over the place that it accidentally works. The comedy and mellow drama suits the wee fellas and those lanky fellas in the cutscenes and fights made some cool action scenes.

I think they could maybe make it work if they Wachowski it up to high heaven but this could turn out to be a much blander version of the story.

I hope I'm wrong.

This pretty much sums up my feelings about it. The content of the game hangs on the janky looking graphics. The super serious games set it the same world ( and the anime) don't work because they look to cool.

Scenes from the intro.

Looks like they'll be basing the combat on Final Fantasy XV's, the game as a whole looks like to be running on that engine from what I can tell.

It seems like a lot of the original lines are in there, in their clunky glory so it does look like it is just pure fan service. The kids will wonder what we were on. When the kids tell me how crap the dialogue is I'll just turn my head and go "not interested".

Hmmm. Not convinced. The juxtaposition of super serious and naff dialogue doesn't sit right. Also, Barrat looks like what I image Wesley Snipes would look like playing Blade now.

It does look like more of a pro operation than it should be in that early scene; these guys did operate out of a dive bar. I am interested in playing it but its strange seeing what people working on this game think what FFVII is.

The dialogue made me laugh a few times but I don't think it was too bad there. I can foresee places where it will be if it stays like that, though. The bit with Barret and Dyne on the cliff being regretful dads comes to mind.

Looks pretty cool. It will be interesting to play through one location after the next and see what kind of memories it brings back...

Hope you still have control over the entire team in battle, although I don't see how that'll work.

And show Tifa already, my inner fanboy can't hold out much longer.

Have to say that seeing the latest trailer then this news has knocked my enthusiasm down by a fair few notches.... You had one job Squeenix, for fucksake.

As time goes on reality reality is kicking in. I imagine it will just follow the main story beats with little of the actual RPG stuff. I've heard rumbles about there being no overworld as well.

Hate to write it off so early but I can't see an episodic RPG being that satisfying.

To top it off, I've just learnt the HD original release is still 4.3 ratio.

Why is life so unfair? I think I'm gonna go sit in the garden and eat worms. :(
