I was going to buy it, but might hold off until community releases unofficial patch that uses AI to upscale backgrounds and triple triad cards. I think it's the biggest downer for the game for me. With the remaster it makes it stand out even more so than before.

I also wonder whether the god-mode has been disabled on console due to certification reasons. Potential exploit of trophies/achievements.

Lol what
the story won't pull in fans that didn't like the story in the original?
well no shit, it's a remaster
the game is the same except added tweaks and visuals

That picture of them with Cid is enough to convince me I'd prefer to stick with the original. Too jarring. If you're going to do a job do it properly or don't bother.

In the actual conversation with him he looks better

I can look past the Cid thing since it likely wasn't intentional. Square remade all of the character models including NPCs and monsters, but in that particular scene Cid is a part of the 2D pre-rendered background (one of the many tricks they used to save space on the disc) so it looks like Square accidentally overlooked it when remastering the game. He has a new character model in every other scene he's in.
