Welch has a Facebook poker as a weapon?  Okay, I would have preferred a zhua claw myself, but I guess a Facebook poker works for this day and age.

The poker is nothing new.  That's pretty much been her trademark since her first introduction.  Though now I'm wondering if SO5 will give us a prompt saying "Welch Vineyard has poked you."

Could be worse.  It could be an IKEA chair.  :P

I'm totally digging this.  Looks really close to her SO1/SO2 remake designs.

I'm also one of those to whom FFIV was my gateway RPG.  I basically played this on a dare because the video store clerk told me that a middle schooler like I was at the time couldn't appreciate something as "deep and involving" as an RPG.  Needless to say, I proved him dead wrong.

I've played FFIV to death and I enjoyed it a lot.  The mechanics and storytelling are rather quaint by today's standards, but it still holds a place in my heart.  Or maybe that's just Rydia, because Rydia is love.  :P  But then FFIII/VI came out and that still remains my favorite of the series to this day.

Welch had some pretty fun PAs for 1/2.  Especially in the second game I was usually pretty happy finding some way to shove out Noel (I do admit I'd take on Ernest just to steal from the poor bastard).

Yep.  Big part of why I bothered with Item creation in SO3 (other than the fact that a lot of the item/equipment was actually helpful) was for scenes like that.  I could watch her all day </Ihavenoshame>.

She was fun in the remakes, but more as an extra than anything. 

Now I'm wanting to fire SO3 up again, dammit.

As for SO5, it's wearing down on my resolve to wait on getting a PS4.  Even more so with all the PS2 classics hitting the PSN.

Which is why SO3!Welch is best Welch.  As much as I liked her, though, I never understood why they put her in the first two remakes.  And yeah, not a fan of SO4!Welch.

I'm all for Welch being back.  Especially since it looks like they're going closer to her SO3 design.  :)

Estelle has snark with a massive helping of pluck, which is why I like her so much.

Rean at least has enough snark and savvy to avoid being a complete doormat, so there's hope for him yet.  Especially since Alisa is bringing the tsun early on.  The other classmates haven't grabbed me as of yet, though.

Who's everyone's favorite character?
A. Sara
B. Sara
C. Some other answer that is wrong.

(Note: I may or may not be loopy from lack of sleep)
I've only just finished the Prologue, but so far Sara is the only right answer.

Though it's only the beginning so there's plenty of time for the Aveng...er...Class VII to find their traction. :P

I do like the idea of Elena being recruitable; doubly so since I imagine the Turks are getting the same treatment as AVALANCHE in the reboot.

Or failing that, a chapter where the Turks are playable would be nice, as well.  Would be cool to see what they're up to when they're not fighting Cloud & co.  Though that might be a whole game in and of itself.

Moar Jessie plz! kthxbye.

Right with you on this.  Her dying on the tower in Section 7 and Blank getting petrified in FFIX always stuck with me for some reason.

At least Blank got better.  Jessie, we hardly knew ye....

What about during the time when Cloud
gets mako poisoning and is out of the party for a while, and Cid has to take over as leader
wielding a long spear/polearm?

I forgot that Cid is party leader temporarily.  I'm excited for that portion of the remake, as Cid was my favorite character back when I was a kid.

Also, as Taelus so wisely pointed out, character switching is 100% confirmed part of battles.  In fact, seeing Barret do "Big Shot" was one of my favorite parts of the new trailer. :P
I assume it was "Big Shot" anyways.  Could have been a Fire spell, but... either way, it looked awesome, shooting it out of his SUPER AMAZING LOOKING gun arm.
There's also that brief bit where you play as Tifa, up to the Bitchslap fight between her and Scarlett.  Hopefully, that'll be a fun part of the game.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that was "Big Shot" Barrett was doing (along with Cloud doing "Braver".  Can't wait to see how they do the other character's fighting styles, like if Aerith still simply pokes things with a stick of if she actually learns some kung fu (okay, so the latter isn't very likely, but it would still be funny).

I wonder how they're doing to do magic.  It's clearly an option judging by the UI and I've always liked making Cloud a primary magic user as opposed to the norm of him being a swordsman.

I wept a little. Early impressions from me are still pretty damn surprised this is happening. It looks gorgeous and sounds gorgeous. Yeah, Cloud still seems a little too mopey; he should be a bit more sassy, or with a bit more attitude. My jaw is still on the floor otherwise.

He sounded more broody than mopey to me, which felt about right.  I'd like to hear more of him in actual conversation, like with Tifa at Seventh Heaven (if only because I want to hear Tifa's voice, too. :P)

And I'm liking Barret's new look.  He looks and sounds like freakin' Blade, except with more gravel.  

I think for once I can feel safe being hyped for more of this.

I've never played DQVII, so it will be nice to get a chance to.  And more DQVIII is never a bad thing.

Yes, please.

I've been playing this for the past couple of months and I have yet to put the game down.  After a couple of false starts, I've finally gotten a character up to the end of the 2.0 storyline.  It can be quite a grind, but this is one of those occasions when I don't mind the grind at all.  Haven't felt that in years! 

I'm loving the story!  I agree that the story and the world in general feels more like "Final Fantasy" than most have felt in ages.  It's like, all the themes, the music, everything that got me into the series is there.

Am I the only one who liked the awesome music in the trailer?  Both the music and visuals gave me a Read Or Die vibe, almost.  I'm hoping that's representative of what to expect in game, because it's not often you get to hear a soundtrack like that.

Yeah these are probably a guy and a girl. 

My first thought was that they looked like younger versions of Theodore and Elizabeth.  I doubt that's who they are.  They'll probably just be new additions to the Velvet Room family (who keeps popping these kids out, anyway?)

Can we also assume that the Velvet Room will take the appearance of a jail cell this time?
