I thought DVDs weren't big enough to fit a game, how did they fit 5 on one DVD?

This could be what causes me to get a new system. I have been wanting to play HL2 since it came out but never had a computer that could play it. If I could play it and all the others on a 400 dollar system that would be great.

PoE: Deadfire, Unless you have a or PS5 or an SSD don't bother, loading times are insane. A minute and a half to go into a room to investigate a desk in an inn and then an additional 1 1/2 minutes to leave the room and then load to leave the inn???

And they never fixed it.

Definitely don’t start your Final Fantasy VII experience with Rebirth

Start at the beginning.

Well that's how it should be, but too many now buy sequels rather than starting at the beginning. That's why more sequels now have no mention of the previous game.

SDuck23h ago

I already used to do that back in the day. Bought both God of War 2 and FFXIII-2 without knowing anything about their prequels

typically if theres a 2 or a -2... there's source material...

jeromeface23h ago

Too many people need to be told this anymore... it really blows my mind.

GoodGuy0922h ago

Square didn't name it Remake 2 to maximize sales anyways lol

jznrpg21h ago

Yes play the first game it’s really good

SegaSaturn66921h ago

The first game was so bad i couldn't finish it. Endless fetching, nonsense additions, etc. Cool visualization of Midgar, but it's all filler.

Snookies1220h ago

"Endless fetching" - Don't do the side quests then, they do kind of suck.
"nonsense additions" - Most of the additions are actually very welcome to some parts that NEEDED fleshing out.
"it's all filler" - That isn't even the least bit true...

There were some lacking moments in Remake, and some odd choices at times I'll give you that. Trying to say the game was "bad" though is very far off the mark. It's a fantastic game.

RonnySins18h ago

Bad my a**. As for the fetching quests, don't do them. Simple.

NukeDaHippies17h ago

absolutely true. i coulda still accepted the less desirable stuff if the story didn't shit the bed in the last hour

Just finished my second playthrough of ff7 remake. One of the best games I've ever played. A bit slow at times, but it's exceptional.

Yeah hard disagree on this. If you skip remake you wont miss out on anything. The story truly kicks off when you leave Midgar.

Snookies1220h ago

The heck do you mean? You will miss out on EVERYTHING if you skipped Remake, lol. Who the hell goes into a story driven series without playing the first part of it? There's absolutely no point in jumping on mid-way through something like that. You'd have no context for any characters or their relationships, nor their goals or plot of the series as a whole.

Rebel_Scum17h ago

Just watch the story catch up video in Rebirth. Remake just wasnt a good game.

To anyone new to FFVII I’d suggest the play the original then rebirth.

Dompoesmod5h ago

Remake was an excellent game. Got me through lockdown as well so I have fond memories. Just finished my second playthrough before digesting rebirth. Ff7 remake must be played first .

jeromeface6h ago

hard disagree, midgar sets the plate for the rest of the the story

Rebel_Scum4h ago

Nothing that the “story so far” video in Rebirth can’t fix.
