On this particular run through I actually considered him to 'have' taken that level of the fact that he made Kefka forcibly sit in jail. Probably without explaining 'why' because you know Kefka wouldn't have kept it quiet while stewing in his cell.

To go back to my earlier comparison just apply a Joker analogue to it. If someone from the Batman world, walked up to the Joker, and simply told him without any reasoning "Hey! You! In jail, now!" and the Joker actually did just that... I'd give them a +level.

Wasn't that part of a further plan somehow when he did that? I don't remember the scene. You might actually be right.
The problem is, I already knew Kefka was the main bad guy before I played the game so I could've just been operating a bit of a confirmation bias on it.

Going to jail was further part of the Emperor's plan, but they never explain outright if Kefka was informed or not. I always assumed not just from the particular temper tantrum he has in his cell if you sacrifice a perfect banquet run to go spy on him. Doubly so considering he's doing this without even knowing he's being watched.

One of the very few improvement of the PSX version is the built in run feature that makes the Running Shoes more or less redundant. The largest benefit from that was the fact that it made the timed sequences (the Opera House, the Banquet, the Floating Continent Escape and the Collapsing House in Tzen) easier since you could increase or decease your speed at will (or you could equip the Running Shoes anyways and go at Warp Speed). Viewing Kefka's prison rant has never been easier than with the new and improved Running Shoes! Buy a pair at your local Relic Shop today!

More games need a "super run" option. 

...I'd also give up a breast to be have that RPG agility that makes them run forever.... except FF15 where Noctis gets tired every so couple hundred meters....aaaaaarrgh

Heck, even that isn't so bad considering that a person can run flat out for about a minute and a half, need 20~30 seconds of cooldown power swaggering, then start right back up again with no muss or fuss in regards to the long term effects of going flat out for so long (like sore muscles, blisters on the feet/toes, muscle cramps, athlete's foot, pebbles, sand and/or rocks in shoes, wet socks/shoes, twisted ankles and so much more).

Why has no-one commented on this yet?

http://www.siliconera.com/2015/06/15/final-fantasy-vii-remake-is-coming-to-playstation-4/

This is either the worst trolling ever and I will be forced to destroy Siliconera with the force of pure hatred OR it's the best gaming news of the year.

Or it could be Squeenix kicking around the idea of a remake again and nothing's gonna come of this.

But no matter how you slice it, we haven't gotten to Squeenix's press conference yet which is why it was being discussed in the E3 General Discusso thread with all the other rumors, speculations, leaks, trip reports, discussions about who won this year's E3 and hilarious/stupid E3 gifs.

When XBox was talking about upcoming titles to look forward to at Gamescom, I swear one of the banners was of Cloud, so it might just be true this time.

Nope. The only ones on the screen during the 'go see Gamescom' was the Fable Legends chick, Lara Croft, the Gears 4 guy, Master Chief and someone else I can't quite recall at this particular moment (I think he was either from that Rare Sea of Thieves game or somebody from one of those Tom Clancy games).

Aha, I didn't notice the E3 thread.

Well all I'll say is if they are remaking it, they'd better not change anything from the core game. Something tells me that's asking too much though, there's no way the modern Squenix would just leave that nice and well-balanced battle system like that. They'll try and sex it up somehow.

Rumours be piling:

Honestly, part of the reason a glorified remaster might "work better".  A remake would mean a huuuuge overhaul I'd imagine.  Or, I'd love to eat crow and see a realistic Cloud going through many motions to get himself lady's clothes in a full HD environment (and HD Midgar...which makes my butt tingle excites me greatly).

Given that Yakuza 0 had a cat fighting minigame, and that games like Akiba's Trip and Senran Kagura exist, I wouldn't be too surprised if they kept that segment in (though I wouldn't be surprised if they ended up toning down Cloud's anti-hero shenanigans during that segment by a significant amount).

Dumps realism?  Since when did Final Fantasy games have anything to do with realism?

Most realistic belts and buckles I've ever seen.
