The only question is how much content there will be per episode. You could argue that the original version was the same since it was split up into discs. If this game is split up in the same way, then surely there are no problems.

I see what you're getting at, but I disagree. Yes, it came on 3 discs, but...

1) You got them all at once. No delayed release in between. I would hate to End disc 2 and then be like, "welp, guess I find out what happens in 6 months.'"
2) You only had to pay for them once, not multiple times. (Though if the total cost of the remake is the same as a normal new game, then that's all good.)
3) Distribution will vary (and some will/won't care about this point). Will they all be available on disc? Will I walk into a store any purchase each episode every 6 months? Or will there be some sort of 'season pass' feature?

I'm also curious to see if they announce any DLC, like costumes and such.

I facepalmed when I saw that earlier today. Could seriously not believe it.

After thinking about it a little more, it's true that FF7 is a very large game and clearly, in terms of time/money/resources, it will be a huge sink for SE, so it may appear like a wise move on paper to release them individually at a (probably) inflated cost overall. On the other hand, I certainly won't be buying "Episode 1" on its own - I'll wait for the complete edition that will of course eventually come. SE better hope that's not what most people do.

Hey, if we can swing the sword without waggling the remote, I'm all for it! ;)

But yeah, nothing really wrong with re-releases, I'm just not a big fan. Especially since a lot of them feature very minor updates (more-so on PS than Nintendo though).

As a huge Zelda fan... I am not excited for Twillight Princess HD.

Game companies: move on and stop re-releasing old games as quick cash grabs. I very much enjoyed TP, but do I need it again? No.

Side-note: I like Linkle's design. She looks cool.

See, I think TP HD was almost a necessity. Especially after Wind Waker, but I tried playing the GC version recently and it looked like absolute butt on my TV. Though I really like keeping old game experiences alive through rereleases, so I'm biased in this regard, but still. ^_^

Well they must be popular, I guess that's why there's so many re-releases these days! I think it's easier when you played the original when they were released. Like, Wind Waker still looks good to me on Gamecube. I think the Wii U port has tons of cool new features, but hardly necessities that prompted a huge remake/port-thing (or me spending another $90 on a game I effectively already own). That said, I have bought a few, OoT 3D for instance. It more bugs me when the game I actually want (Zelda Wii U) gets delayed and they keep re-releasing stuff in the mean time (or spin-offs a la Kingdom Hearts).

And of course, those were the legendary days of huge manuals you actually read, so that was a great way to pull people into the game's world before they even got it installed.

I miss those days. Well, not that every game needs a giant manual, but for particular RPGs it was awesome (Baldur's Gate II is springing to mind) and also a great time-killer during install. The only modern version I've seen is the origami included in Heavy Rain and the instructions provided while the game's installing. Good stuff.

I have mixed feelings about all this. But that's probably at least partially based on my mixed feelings about XSEED. But that's probably at least partially based on my experience meeting these people at E3. *shrug*

I was reading a review for SC, and then it said: "It is no exaggeration to say that the game takes almost 25 hours to get going." I enjoyed FC, but I don't have the time or energy to do a game as slow as it all over again.

I think I'll be getting a 4 anyway, since gaming isn't top priority for me on PC and I do need to replace my current laptop. If you haven't got one by the time I do Took, I'll let you know how I go with it.
70  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: MS Surface Pro on: October 30, 2015, 04:15:53 PM
Hmm. You'd think the i5 would suffice since, at least on the Pro 4, it's the new 6th gen. But I guess "gaming" is quite broad - if we wanted to play The Witcher 3, for example, then I can see why the i7 would be necessary. But yeah, I am not getting an i7 - the cheapest Pro 4 model of it here is $2300!!

Typos happen.

Fire and Water I find the most useful (as all-out assault and cautiously ranged, respectively). Earth I enjoy, but on Semi-Auto I seem to often end up attacking too far away to hit an enemy so I don't use it much. Wind feels kind of awkward so I tend to only use it if needed to attack a weakness.

A tip for Water Temple I found useful: Work sequentially. Drain the water and start on the bottom floor, going through every room currently available. Then up the water level and do the same on the 2nd floor, then the top floor. You'll have to do a few cycles (it's far from a perfect route), but you'll get there eventually. When you get the piece of equipment in there, navigation becomes much faster.

While I never found Water Temple frustrating and annoying in the same way a lot of people seem to, it's certainly a more enjoyable experience when you've played it enough to know where everything is, haha.

I've only started playing this seriously in the last couple days.  Edna has just joined my party
Yeah, I'm about there too and Mikleo is such a pussy.
Tells me to run at the boss right after but I win the fight instead.

So... errrr... can you actually run from it?

Yes, you can run.  I had to. ^_^;

On Hard I was OHKO'd. :P

My thoughts so far...

The Good
- Fun characters and dialogue.
- Fast-paced battle system.
- Great art design.
- Story mostly well paced so far and enjoyable, if cliche and a bit predictable.
- Good voice acting, for the most part.
- Large, open areas.

The Bad
- The large, open areas are basically empty.
- Weapon/Armour skills are extremely complicated and annoying.
- So few artes, particularly on Sorey, is a real shame.
- Textures vary in quality. They're serviceable, but not wonderful on PS4.
