my favorite snake eating its own tail is people who are oversensitive to people who they claim are oversensitive to words.

Lol well since I think that roughly describes myself, let me defend the position.
I don't agree that that's the same snake at all. The whole point, at least in my own case, of having a problem with people who are easily offended is not just an annoyance that they're so easily offended. If it was just that alone and it had no other effects, I wouldn't care. It's those other effects that are the problem. Namely, people being offended is constantly used to shut down discussion on particular issues (and usually the issues that desperately need serious discussion) or in this context it's used to try and pressure people to alter their creative expression (as in that pillars of eternity example).
You can't make that same argument for my being oversensitive to oversensitive people. I'm not stopping discussion on anything. I'm just slightly annoying those people. That's a much smaller loss to society!

I think the only thing I can think of that would need changed to not offend people is Tifa calling people a retard when you climb the stairs to the Shinra Building. :P

Lol is retard offensive? I swear to God our current society is indistinguishable from a parody of itself.

Actually that ios game is rather good, too.

Have you played it E3 then? Or you just saying you thought it looked good?

Wow, I can't even remember where that gif is from.

If you're referring to the one I posted, it's from the flashback to Barret's past where Shinra attack Corel. Just before (or after, I forget) he gets his hand shot.

Personally, I'm mostly interested in how they deal with the social issues.
Jokes about gays, fat people and transvestites don't fly as well now as opposed to 20 years ago.

What jokes were there?

I remember being so insanely impressed with this in 97. It still looks pretty awesome.

FFVII's pre-rendered backgrounds were indeed gorgeous but one thing I did not like about them was how small it forced a lot of the environments to be.  Going from FFVI to FFVII the dungeons got a heck of a lot smaller.

Apparently that was part of the reason for why 2 of the 3 PS1 games had crazily proportioned character models. Namely, if you're showing particularly large or distant areas with prerendered backgrounds, a regularly proportioned character will be much less recognizable or will all look fairly similar from a distance. So you either need to make them stand out in some way or just stick to very close camera shots.
I either read that given as an explanation at some point or I'm making it up. You decide!


You can bring back your fears -

To that incredibly vaguely worded response, all I have to say is "This guy are sick!"

It was the equivalent of when the news says "send us your tweets about what's happening near you".

Nintendo sucked big time this year.

Anyone else enjoy that really overexcited guy in the crowd who cheered really loudly at the mention of KH and then it turned out to be a shitty iOS game?

I'm playing thru FFVII on PC now. How "confirmed" was Rufus' death in FFVII and where did it happen? At least in AC they didn't tou ry to bring back Hojo or some nonsense.

You were aware that's what Dirge of Cerberus did right? Or was that what you were implicitly comparing it to?

found Rufus semi dead and cast Life 2 on him

There's something they could change and very few people would mind.


Not to be a dick here, but what exactly in the original FFVII is actually contradicted by the content in AC CC DC?

Well there was the point near the beginning where Cloud claims he doesn't ever remember owning any droids.........

I'd say it is a pretty much 100% certain deal. This is the chance to "fix" FF VII so it ties properly into Crisis Core, Advent Children and Dirge of Cerberus. Nomura is not going to let that chance slip.

Why would they "fix" the most beloved part of that series to bring it into line with the least loved parts? To borrow a blackadder quote: that's like fixing the problem with your low ceiling by cutting off your head.

Preorder to receive Aeris revival DLC.

So do people think the battle system will be even kinda-sorta ATB-like?  Or will they be going full ARPG.

I really hope they stick to something more turn-based but for a project this high profile I have a hard time believing that they will.

I'm thinking they'll base it on the original but jazz it up with all kinds of actiony add-ons. Changing it to full on action FF15 style would fundamentally change the game, which really does need to be party based.

Maybe some small changes will be good. If everything's exactly the same, it won't feel new enough to those of us who've played the original to death.

I guarantee no-one in the world can name any of those indie games they showed just after without looking it up.

the words in the trailer are interesting trying to make sense of them.

I assume it was supposed to be a kind abstract voice speaking for humanity and referring to Jenova's arrival in the past and then the reunion during the time of the game. They kinda worded it to give it a double entendre so it could mean the game characters coming back as well.
