@MisterPi What I find amazing is so many people seem to think it'll be amazing. I'm not sure what about "let's take a classic and reboot it as something different" from the company that gave us XIII, in an episodic format, gives people a good feeling.

Episodic format alone either means: We want to make one $60 game into six $40 games, or it means "we have no faith in this project, just hope there's an episode 4 at all."

On a different note, I gave XV a spin the other day, just in the opening areas. It's weird. Batstuff weird. But it actually seems kind of cool. Maybe it's the stink of XIII wearing off.

I'm not convinced that the ff7 remake will be released within the next five years. I'm also not particularly interested in it. Partially because I've vowed to never buy another square game again (Squaresoft or Square Enix) unless it's Dragon Quest, due to how their new games are always disappointing to me. Even their old games don't hold my attention as much as RPGs from other companies.

Still waiting for Atlus to make Snowboard Kids 3

Anyone else think Cloud’s hair in the remake trailer looks nothing like the original?

Well for it to look like the original it would need to be ugly.

It's a good approximation. They just can't recreate the original ps1 hair and make it look natural at the same time. They need to adapt.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Well, if we ever get a “Lego Final Fantasy“ game...

@Yosheel Yeah no one’s hair can possibly stick out in strange directions like that.

A Cloud hair Lego piece would provably end up banned due to safety concerns.

Every version of Cloud after the original game has been pretty much identical. All they did is made his hair less spikey so he looks like an actual believable person rather than a Dragonball Z character.

That new model for the remake I posted looks pretty much the same as all of these.

Converted from Sony to Nintendo during 7th gen and never looked back.

The question I have about FF7 that I've never found a good answer to is:

Why did they make the Buster Sword into such a big deal in Crisis Core even though it played no meaningful role in FF7 at all.
It felt like they were trying to explain the significance of something that no-one actually thought was significant.
The only important thing about it was that it was used in all of the promotional material.

I guess they figured people were curious about where that giant sheet of metal came from.

Of course, it's original owner then proceeds to rarely use the darn thing, even though his family pumped all their savings into it.

I wasn't curious at all. I thought it was just a common theme in this world that things had weird proportions. It matched the crazy hair and the silly character models.

Doesn’t it get replaced like any other weapon very early into the game anyway?

Yeah I don’t know either.

@Yosheel

Yep. You can replace it within about an hour and then never use it again. Hence why it really didn't need any explanation.

The only thing about it that's consistent with Crisis Core is that you can't actually sell the Buster Sword at all. It's always stuck in your inventory.
At the time though, that wasn't because it was supposed to be an important sword. That was just because it was the sword they used in all minigame type things (like the motorbike chase) so they needed to make sure you kept it.
I imagine this is something they'll change in the remake. They'll change things to make it consistent with Crisis Core.

Were it not for the whole “this is an RPG where you need to keep finding better gear“ thing, Cloud probably would've kept using the Buster Sword all the way to the end.

Actually, isn't it the only sword seen in in-game cutscenes? Maybe a complicated case of gameplay and story segregation?

Or a case of "we had to settle on a design because these are prerendered cutscenes".

Funny how Cloud has a giant sword, Barret has his giant armcannon, Yuffie has a giant shuriken. Tifa somehow got the memo wrong.

Started replaying FF5. It's the only game in the main series I haven't finished, except FF2, but that's too bad a game to make it through.

Think FF5 is definitely underrated though. It's a fun game, from what I've played in the past. Really great pacing for the story, if not quite as deep as others in the series.

I think FF2 is criminally underated and more people need to look past the weird leveling system and enjoy it for what it is.

@Dezzy

My #1 FF game. Which version are you playing? GBA and up is ideal. Lots of bonus content.

@Yosheel

“What it is“ is precisely why I (and others) don't like it.

It's kinda hard to “look past“ a rather vital system like character progression. I'd rather put up with VIII's Junction System.
