I had no idea this was coming out. Hmm. Kind of expensive though :/

user55757081057d ago (Edited 1057d ago )

$85 is a steep price for 3 games that currently total at $30 online. not to mention there are better and more in depth game guides on gamefaqs

at best this sells as a collectors item

This isn't for the games it's for the games guides and they are hardcover so i don't think it's that steep honestly.

If Square are desperate for money, all they have to do is remake FF7 or 8 and boom!

Razputin1057d ago

The problem would be the money they dump behind remaking 7.

That would be the real issue. Do you really think FFVII's combat and playstyle will hold up today?

I would love to see a remake, because what you have to do today to get some mods installed is pure ridiculous.

If they need money; what makes you think they have the cash to remake a game like FF7?

SE's MO is to expend the least amount of resources the earn the maximum amount of profit. This means cheap, lazy games that milk nostalgia.

They need to do this to recoup the massive losses they get from investing incredible amounts of time and money into games and then cancelling them years into development, sometimes then RE-developing them from the ground up. See the giant sinkholes that are FFXIV and FFXV.

There's a reason Final Fantasy XV needs to be the biggest Final Fantasy game ever: it needs to be to even stand a chance of recouping the money SE has wasted on it. Seriously, if you're in for a good laugh/cry at SE's monumental incompetence, read the wiki article on XV/Versus' development.

VII is one of the greatest games ever made. Trust me you will love it once the game opens up. You do eventually leave Midgar which is the city you start out in and there is a vast and varied world to explore with an amazing story and characters. I think you will love it.

9 is the best of the early 3D ones. 7 and 8 are just way more overhyped. then 6 and 12 are my next favs with FF Tactics following close behind.

TheOneWhoIsTornApart1057d ago

7 and 9 are my two top favorites in the series and think they are equally as good. 7 has a special place in my heart because it was my very first Final Fantasy game and was completely blown away by it when I first played it.
