Now the wait for official FFXIII remaster can begin

Mr Marvel1799d ago

Why? FFXIII is complete garbage.

Juusterey1799d ago

You're opinion
why? for the people who want it

FallenAngel19841799d ago

Why not? FFVIII was just as divisive as FFXIII, and it still got a remaster

If you don’t care why would you want others to be deprived of this

Is this just the digital release or also physical?

TGGJustin1799d ago

Digital only for right now. I think those rumors about a retail release were false given this is only $20.

winter_hill1799d ago

Okay thanks. I hope they do release this on disc at some point, but I won't hold my breath.

TGGJustin1798d ago

Not likely being this is only $20.

Mr Marvel1799d ago

Best 3D FF game and 3rd best FF game overall (behind FFIV & FFVI).
I want to pre-order this masterpiece, but I need to know if there's going to be a physical release on PS4 or not.

Final Fantasy Games That Deserve the Remake Treatment

Final Fantasy has a long running history with numerous numbered titles and spin-offs, but which games stand to benefit from a remake?

gold_drake216d ago

i feel like all of them.
well except 2 haha.

shinoff2183215d ago

Agreed. Ff2 though can be made better, so it's not entirely a lost cause. Ff8 will gets its time. I do wish they'd do the old ones. From ff10 and up those ones still hold up pretty well.

kevco33215d ago

Honestly, I've always felt that VII and up 'hold up well' in that regard. The early 3D games just needed a cosmetic update. But the FFVII Remake is so different to the original in execution that a lot of games could be done in a similar fashion and feel far more modern.

I'm not saying that's a good or bad thing (that depends on your personal preference!), just that they could feel very different.

shinoff2183214d ago

Kevco I liked remake but I think your right. Idda been happy with a 1 to 1 remake that looked like ever crisis to. Or both

I'd just love I square would one day give us a turned based one with today's graphics. I can't really think of a jrpg that does that.

andy85215d ago

I'd rather the 13 trilogy just be ported tbh. No matter what you think if it, it shouldn't be the only numbered offline games not playable on new consoles. But naturally I'd play the **** out of 8-12 remakes.

shinoff2183214d ago

I do agree. I'd give it another shot even though I didn't like it at first. My taste change over time. Gta 4 for instance I was so disappointed it lacked so much of what san andreas had I didn't play it for like 5 years. One day went to a semi pro football game(American football) came home drunk and decided to try 4 again. I actually liked it after giving it a fair shot.

Rebel_Scum214d ago

Just make new games. Not every game needs to be remade.

It’s a great game, but uh, this is like a really old release. Not sure why you felt the need to put a review up for it now. Are you going to do a review on Parasite Eve?

andy85251d ago

I'd like it remastered I know that 😂
