Final Fantasy VII Remake

Post by XtremeOne1 » 12 Jun 2019, 05:54

I know we have a fan Final Fantasy VII fans here, so I've got to ask, what does everyone think of all the remake news?

Release Day is March 3rd, 2020 and it is still "episodic"....

I mean, it's interesting. It isn't episodic in the way Walking Dead is episodic. It's more like Star Wars, or in Video Game terms Xenosaga. Full experiences that are part of a bigger story. How it will work out, I'm not sure. The whole game in Midgar, which is only 10% of the main game? That's...quite the choice. But it also sounds like we'll experience a lot more character building and more world building. Nothing wrong with that! I'm cautiously optimistic.

The battle system also sounds very different; a combo of new school(action rpg-y) mixed with old school(ATB Gauge leading into the Tactical Mode)

I really hope it's all worth it. I've already pre-ordered, so I'm in.

I feel like this is going to be something that goes 3 - 5 episodes. At 1 every 2 years I wouldn't be surprised if we don't get the final episode around, ugh, 2030.

I preordered the 1st Class edition. They completely sold me with the E3 presentation.

I think it'll be 2 or 3. The old game was three discs and most of the first disc was Midgar and the third disc was literally just the final dungeon. If the second game is next-gen, it could be open world and handle most if not all of the remainder of the plot. Also, they've clearly reorganized the plot structure, so things are going to happen in Midgar that didn't happen until later for the sake of pacing.

It was either split here or after the bit with the sword, you know. And, judging by the trailer, they've greatly expanded Midgar to make it worthwhile as a standalone game.

Yeah, I think that we might even see stuff like the Golden Saucer being part of Midgar. I feel like the first instalment is going to be super heavy on the science stuff and then the second game is going to be where it really opens up into the mythos of the Cetra.

Just... like, all I’m asking is PLEASE give me some Red XIII soon!

If we're going to get Yuffie, Vincent, Cait Sith, and Cid in this game, they're going to have to switch some things around. I wouldn't be opposed to having Biggs, Wedge, and Jesse as playable for the Midgar part, though.

I mean... controversial opinion for a recovered emo and goth... but I’m not too bothered about seeing Vincent. Yuffie, yes. Cid, yes. Red XIII is my whole life. But honestly, I really don’t care overly about Vincent or Cait Sith 🤷‍♂️

I absolutely never used Cait Sith when I didn't have to but I thought his story hook was interesting. Vincent's spin-off game actually made me like him less as a character. The absolute worst of mid-2000s overwrought anime storytelling.

Honestly, most of the larger FFVII universe can suck it. Outside of Advent Children.


I really don't know about Gold Saucer. Act II needs it where it is, I think. But we do get the Honeybee Inn and all that nonsense. I really hope they keep most if not all of it. Cloud being cute enough to pass as a girl and getting hit on is super fun.

I wouldn't be surprised if we don't get Vincent and Yuffie. At the earliest, Yuffie can be recruited shortly after Midgar. Vincent is FAR into the future of the game though so it will be weird to have him earlier. Granted, both of them are completely inconsequential to the story due to being optional characters so it won't make much of a difference to introduce them sooner if they wanted to.
