All I hope is that this game is good. I really want it to be good after SO4.

I never got that "Nintendo playing the parent deciding what's right for it's kid's eyes".  They been doing this for decades now, so I'm surprised people are surprised. 

The problem is it's only been since the rise of the internet that people have known what exactly was changed in the old games. (Except Mortal Kombat and people were complaining about that back then).

It wasn't nearly as bad during the GC/Wii era but Nintendo seems to be backsliding into the 80s between cutting content and region locking.

It's especially dicey (no pun intended) when you start cutting content in RPGs because people are going to start feeling like they are missing story content, even if it's just character interactions.

Instead of talking about the petting mini game (which I think is stupid but shouldn't be removed - I don't like Japan treating the Western audience as babies that are too sensitive to handle anything without freaking out), I wish people would talk about how you're being forced to buy three versions of the game to get the full story. Talk about bilking the fanbase.

Shower thought - Whomever said that it's a localiser's job to take out content for different audiences is 100% dead wrong. A localiser's job is to localise the content for a specific audience and give context when necessary. Not to be the moral arbiter of what should and shouldn't go in a game. If a localiser is offended by content in a game they're working on, they should give that content, or that game, to someone else who isn't as easily offended.

I can't wait for this to get canceled in a couple of months.

It won't. XSeed's not doing it this time, so they can't botch it and blame someone else like with the PSP game.

Don't use logic with Lard, apparently it invalidates his reasons.

Wow, someone's got their panties in a twist over this game. A game that Squeenix has royally bungled at this point.

And Rob - do you honestly think Square isn't going to charge full price for this, especially since they're splitting it up as well?

 We remember that feeling of awe when we first experienced FF7 almost 20 years ago.  And I would love to see a new generation of gamers feel that same awe.  But in order to do that, it needs to evolve like a pokemon.  And I think about the example of Metroid Prime.  That game completely redefined Metroid and it was really good.  

But it also wasn't a remake of an existing game.

The problem with FF7 is that everyone is still stuck in this mentality of last gen where Japan has to appeal to western gamers.

And how did that turn out for the genre? It turned out shit.

I don't want to play FF 7 Drake's Fortune. I don't want to play FF 7 Skyrim. I don't want to play FF 7 Ghost Babel. I don't want to play FF 7 Lost Planet.

It's this mentality of trying to please everyone, which you're never going to do, instead of saying "Hey this was awesome back then, and it's still awesome now".

All they had to do was give us a decent translation, a choice of remixed or old soundtracks, some good voice acting and I think the majority of people would have been happy. People weren't asking for very much and Square still managed to fuck it up.

And as an aside, given that it will probably 3 discs, and amazon.ca has the first disc listed at $80 (closer to $90 with tax in Canada), there is *no fucking way* I am paying $270 for FF7. That is downright laughable.

You not accepting valid reasons doesn't making them invalid.

You're just ready to make excuses for every stupid decision done by Square about the game.

I've had bowel movements with more development time than FFVII at this point.

http://gematsu.com/2015/12/final-fantasy-vii-remake-part-one-scenario-complete

Given that the first disc is already done, I highly doubt that.

I dunno man I think i'd recognize Cloud's stupidly spikey head even if Picasso painted it.

Fair enough - amended

And if they're going to make the game's story/mechanics so different as to be unrecognisable, what's the point?

I mean, given what disnazi is like with Star Wars, it's pretty unlikely we're going to get a character named Biggs even.

I agree a 3DS remake probably would have been better, but given Square's propensity for pomposity, that was never going to happen.

Jesus christ. Nobody is naysaying "just to be cool".

People are pissed off because instead of being an RPG, it's now an action game with RPG *elements* just like every other fucking game nowadays.

They thought they were getting the full game - now they are being charged full price for each disc, which is completely exploitative and it's exactly why Square didn't announce the game was episodic when it was revealed.

And if they're going to make the game so different as to be unrecognisable, then what the fuck is the point of remaking the game in the first place?

I'd rather just have something new than some frankenstein of a game calling itself a remake.

Calling you contrarian is not disrespectful.

You came on after I made a post about how the game should be turn based and literally said "I hope the game is changed a ton!"

Why? Just to be contrarian. And to start an argument.

You want people to be respectful, try leading by example.
73  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake on: January 01, 2016, 07:05:27 PM
And you'd have a low charisma stat.
74  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake on: January 01, 2016, 06:55:40 PM
No, I'm not "just wrong". You just like to be deliberately contrarian, particularly when it's something I post.
75  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy VII Remake on: January 01, 2016, 06:21:51 PM
It would sell to people our age, sure.  But our niche may not exactly push the kind of numbers that a mainstream demographic would in order for the game to recoup its costs; and we're not the mainstream demographic.  

The mainstream crowd (especially the teenage mainstream crowd) outnumbers us and they have more time to play games (because their spare time isn't spend adulting) and more disposable income (since they're not budgeting adult expenses like mortgages).  


You're acting like this is going to be marketed toward the mainstream, COD crowd. It's not and it was never going to be.
There's this idea that people are too stupid or ADD riddled to take 5 seconds and take a turn in a fight, and it's complete and utter bullshit.

Persona is completely turn based and that's huge in NA. This idea that JRPGs *have* to be action based now is is a misconception at best but more likely a straight up lie.
