Today, during a stage show at Tokyo Game Show 2019 hosted by Sony Interactive Entertainment, Square Enix showcased plenty of new gameplay of the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake.
I hate it. Wont be buying an half finished game that will come in parts and cost $60 each, with shitty action rpg combat. I'll stick with the classic.
I think I will just be fine.
it gets 2 battle modes. it seems one that plays like FFXV and the other that plays like FFXIII. if you watch closely to hand input. the AI takes over movement and the player gives commands. https://youtu.be/0x1AGz8Dwt... so there you have it. what more could a FFVII fan want.
Day 1 for me. People may hate me for this, but why are their texturing artists so bad? The textures look incredibly low-res and if you compare it to other open world games many of them win by far in this department. Still, it's absolutely a day one for me.
@abstractel I think it's completely intentional. They are walking a fine line between realism and the actual game, which was anime-y/cantoony.
I think you’re looking at this the wrong way. You’re looking at it like a Telltale Games episodic release when this is more like something like Star Wars in that each movie is a continuation of a story but still feel like a full movie. If they did it like you wanted we wouldn’t be playing this till the ass-end of the PS5 generation. If this ends up being a full-length game like they’re claiming I don’t understand what the complaint is that it’s episodic. This feels like we’re getting a bigger game, but to each their own. You’re allowed to not want to get it for stupid reasons.
the complaint is that we can play the original ffvii and its just one game but now we have to pay many times for the remake. at least telltale charges you once. knowing the internet gaming community whiny nature it sound like they should hate it. but they love it instead. funny. of course i love it too
Add to that, this game is for fans and new players, no one will ever will play 40+ hours of RPG(or any other genre) so smoothly and still interested in at same pace(Dragon Quest and Persona 3 millions sales proved it). The episodic is faithful way to properly expand each part of the game and presenting new elements with keeping the lore and giving choices and delivering amazing graphics and aiming for good sales numbers. Pathetically, people paying Activision, XIII not necessary trilogy, terrible EA quality, and two version of the same never developed Pokemon, but whining about real and amazing quality RPG like VII remake and Cyperpunk 2077.
@harmny game development is expensive, so deal with it
Pfff hahaha .. oh god the nostalgia googles are strong on this one. xD And this will be a full fledged game and seeing how insane this game looks it's more and more obvious why Square couldn't put everything on one disc or remake the whole game at once.
That’s the thing. I used to be like that dude thinking Squate Enix wouldn’t be able to do the FF7 Remake Justice after FF13 and FF15 (even though I like FF15 it’s still far from being close to the earlier FF titles in terms of what made FF so wonderful). Seeing this though has not only proved me wrong but it has exceeded all expectations and wants for the Remake. They went even further than what I thought would make this awesome. I mean just watching Ifrit fight along side you and then do Hell Fire as a finishing move, I just can’t fathom any FF7 fan not being impressed with this! This is the first time in a long time where I am so happy with Square and I hope they’ll push things even further with FF16 and try to outdo what they’ve done here. I can’t even imagine what Jenova and Sephiroth battles will be like if they’ve made these small fry boss battles this epic looking! I hope this sells incredibly well because what Square has done here is nothing short than amazing. I mean what current gen game looks like this!? I only wish this gen had more games on this level!
right!? would have to ship on 3 discs again at that rate lol
This first part is two blu ray discs full.
Your loss buddy.
I hate that it’s broken up, but don’t really care if I get 30+ hrs of an amazing remake of one of the best rpg’s ever made. We will know if it’s worth $60. We have to remember that re creating a game that was 100 hrs long in a modern engine is no easy feat. I’d rather they spend the time and get it right.
FFVII wasn't remotely close to 100 hours lol. Unless you were messing around heavy. But I do believe these FFVII remakes will amount to atleast 120 hours easily now since they're expanding on it and not just giving like a disc a game.
cool story bruh ^_^
The first part is already going to be 2 full blu-ray disks. With all the content they are adding, the game cannot fit in a single release. What you are asking for would require one of 2 things- 1: The game takes another 3-4 years to release, launches on atleast 6 disks, and still costs $200 due to the number of disks, essentially no difference other than having to wait several more years before playing any of it. 2: 60-70% of the planned content for the game gets cut, and never released. Which of those do you want?
I agree with this completely. It comes down to the inflation of graphics and mechanics that we now expect for games. Development costs being 10x or 20x what they were in 1996, something would be lost otherwise, and I’m excited that they didn’t cut anything. Day 1 for me.
Would much rather want it all now instead of waiting 20 years to complete the full story.
@Twinblade: That is not physically possible though, unless they go with option 2 and cut a large amount of planned content.
Oh man, and here we all were hoping you would like it.
youre actually right. for some reason the internet is giving this game a pass when they are actually selling them a remake for at least $120. i don't mind but i'm pleasently surprised people arent bashing square.
You don't even understand the nature of the game and that tells me you didn't even care to look for the details. The game is going to be a huge success. Your toxic opinion will not stop that.
Obviously you didn't pay attention to the demonstration. You can literally play it just like the old game. The only real difference is there are no random encounters and the battle camera isn't a fixed view anymore....THAT'S IT. With the classic mode, all you're doing is controlling the menu like you were in the original. You only press one but to attack and you don't have to move the character. I don't see how "fans" are STILL complaining after they took the time to implement this.
Thhe whole 60 for each part is major BS and will become a bad trend but this looks great and I must have it. Ive destroyed ff7 so many times so the original will always be a classic for me.
Exactly which part of the game will be half finished, if you can enlighten me?
No one cares go talk to the mirror
U musta missed missed option do classic tb
Can't wait! This and Cyberpunk within months, oh god man <3
God is good.
Wonder I should wait for this to go down in price or Cyberpunk, since I have no time to play them both at the same time. Probably I wait for this one to go down in price lol
It looks insane seriously this will be amazing and oh god the girls .. ahh <3
Looks awesome! One of the few upcoming games I'm interested in.
awsome gameplay, might even be built with online coop in mind.
There ya go turn base fanboys, you got what you've been asking for. Gonna stop shitting on the remake as well as the real fans excited for this? No? Of course not, you're all a bunch of entitled whiny bitches that'll never be satisfied, even if members of the dev team wiped your ass while you play it...
U spilled the T man! Comment of the year!
Best comment ever. I can just imagine: "Here are your buttnapkins my lord"
Wait do you think they would be willing to do that if I keep complaining? That way I wont need to stop playing.
I’m genuinely curious.. Where is the turn based system in this video? At what mark?
https://www.youtube.com/wat... There, the AI handles all the moving, blocking, and basic attacking for you, leaving you to play it just like a turn based rpg.
This looks great and I'm glad it's not turn-based. Being able to revisit this world after so long from a different perspective looks like it's going to be a treat. You can't please everyone; I imagine if this game were a remake (more in the realm of remaster) that stuck too close to the original you'd have people calling it a cash grab. Prettier graphics/same game wasn't going to cut it. Exciting - can't wait to go back to this place.
“If we got the entire game like this we’d be waiting much, much longer” You don’t know that. And who cares if we did have to wait a a bit longer? Does getting it sooner justify spending $180 for the entire game? (Game split up into 3 releases)and No... what we’re getting isn’t a full game in itself, it’s part of the game.
And how do you know that? Are you a game developer? Are you working on this particular game? I don't think so. Dont complain we are getting a amazing game. If you dont want to buy your loss.
“And how do you know that” I honestly don’t, but it’s a response to people saying we’d have to wait much longer for a whole release’... Im’ saying THEY don’t know that.
No I'm not deluding myself You're just lying Get over yourself and face the facts
Yes it is a full game Just because the entire ff7 story isn't going to be there Doesn't make it not a full game
Back when the original game came out it had to be on 3 discs because it was just that big of a game.... It was released in 1 case, with 3 discs.. as an entire game.. It’s just not the case that we are getting a ‘full game’ with FF7 remake. The first disc only covers up until the end of midgar... It would be like just getting part of the first LoTR movie and calling that first hour in a half a full movie.
@CaptainOmega: The first "episode" (Midgar) has already been confirmed to be on 2 Blu-ray disks. Not just 1. The full final release will be 6-8 Blu-rays. They have also said that each episode of the remake would be similar in length to one of the FF XIII entries, so 60+ hours, vs around 35 hours for the entire original game. It is completely unreasonable to expect all 3 parts in a single $60 release.
No It'd be like taking Lord of the rings Expending massively on the fist half of the first movie And selling that They're not just splitting a made game and charging extra Each part is a full game
Each part is not a full game. Each part is part of the full game. Stop deluding yourself.
THIS LOOKS SO FUCKING AMAZING AAAAAH! Also the music <3....
They made Aerith all Sailor Moon/Magical Girl and I am HERE for it. THIS is the battle system I've been wanting forever.
This looks so good, I can almost forget how long we were waiting for it. Almost. That E3 reveal is still one of the best ever though.
They could have done the classic mode better, but I will most likely stick with normal mode anyway. God damn the game has some incredible visuals.
it will be a very long game but still episodic possibly 2 or 3 parts. i hope they are all ps4/5 exclusive thats the main point
It looks so amazing! Totally exited for this one.
Ifrit looked great and love the idea of fighting alongside my summons for battles. Couldn't have been done any better. Day 1
Game looks worse every time I see it. I still can't believe how bad Tifa looks.
Yeah your loss. This looks fantastic. That battle music is amazing.
My childhood game, it just sucks that gameplay is probably going to make not purchase it but thank goodness for YouTube, I’ll watch it there & if I need itch scratch just just play it on my PS4, PS3, PS Vita, PS TV, Switch or Xbox One...... I guess I really like this game. If I do buy it, it would be the physical for a collection item but I’m a digital guy. I guess I’ll take the L on this one.
