Like a lot of people, I was thrilled to see the Final Fantasy VII Remake announcement. Yet, as the release date gets closer and closer, I have a couple of nagging thoughts about the game that are keeping me from getting too hyped.
Whether they finish it or not?
This. I suspect they do complete it, but I question how long it will take. I also fear that the last part will feel rushed and unfinished if they take too long between releases and start getting pressured to wrap it up.
Half the game is Disc 1. I have no clue what the hell their plan is. They should just charge $60 for all current and future parts. And I truly wonder if they will ever finish this.
FF7 was 3 disks, not 2 @necrumoddboy. Disk 1 was roughly 10-12 hours depending on how fast you were.
@jeromeface he is correct half of the game was disc 1, the rest was disc 2 and disc 3 basically just stored the rest of the cut scenes for the final bit. you are forgetting that the original discs had limited space, most of the other discs alot was just copy paste assets
Do you think there's enough time? You know because PS4 ain't getting any younger.
That pic of Cloud is funny as hell.
I'm sure someone will complete the trilogy in Dreams. Just save the money.
Lmao, not sure if trolling, but I'll bite anyway: It took some person 9 months to recreate a demo stage for Fallout 4 remake in dreams. And not even with all the functions the original has. And not even with a comparable graphics' quality either (even though the original game wasn't too pretty, to begin with).
Well the decision to make the series episodic next the right choice? I can kind of understand making the entire game at once might not even be possible to make until the end of the PS5 life cycle but I hope the. It worked for Hitman (2016) but that was cheaper and smaller content making a AAA game an episodic release is a brave and dangerous thing.
I think it's more of a cost issue, FF7 and a lot of older JRPGs are huge compared to newer JRPGs, so I can understand if they have to split it up to recoup some of the costs during development. Although it's lunacy to think it won't sell, FF always sells like hotcakes (by extension, you could say KH as well), even when the games are trash or lackluster, it sells reasonably well. I think mis-management of the project (cost/time/ect...) is the biggest fear here.
It depends on the game sales I know part 1 will sell like crazy due to it being the first entry but if sales slow down during the part 2 they might cancel the project altogether.
It depends on how they handle things, from the looks of it they're going to be expanding on characters like Jesse, Biggs and Wedge along with a few new guys/events that weren't in the original like the potential battle with the SOLDIER guy on the motorcycle ect. If it's a 40 hour re-imagining of Disk 1 then I'm fine with that, if its the same length as the original (15-25 hours) and pretty much the same story just with a couple tweaks then not so much.
How many parts is this going to be? If it's more than three, then they are to blame for being morons. They aren't allowed to complain that the game is too big, when they are ADDING NEW STUFF. We never asked for that.
The excuse that the game was too big is ludicrous. we have seen many massive games being released these years. The real reason is what happened behind the Hobbit film trilogy, greed. They are simply trying to milk this as much as possible knowing people adore this game.
They are adding "stuff" to try to justify breaking it up into several parts. (Which might end up being milking) We'll see, but I agree. We never asked for it.
The number of mini games this thing had with different mechanics. Alright they could just punch in the numbers but the bar is higher for mechanics these days. I really dont think they could just simply do some of them as basic as they were and get away with it. Its possible they’re making more competent mechanics for all of the mini games. Which would take a lot of time and effort from planning, development to testing. I doubt its new content that is the sole reason its being broken up into different parts.
And cue the cross dresser trans complains about this game is a piss take to them in 3,2,1
All the surprise is gone from a game that came out 23 years ago and been remade countless times...please. The fact that we are saying we keep seeing the whole story (MIdgar at least) in trailers means we aren't seeing the new stuff they added!
What I wager will happen is Final Fantasy VII Chapter 2 will release for PS4 in a couple years, and then a remaster for PS5 will release as one game a year later.
The question I have is why the hell is the crossdressing scene the part of the game everyone keeps posting images of? Sure it was a funny scene but it is getting way more attention than normal.
Well it was in the most recent trailer and it's a part many were concerned wouldn't be in the game due to modern sensitivity
im actually more concerned about the difficulty. since the game is episodic, how are they gonna deal with the levels? if one part is really that long, u cant expect us to be lvl 17-20 after 60ish hours lol.
Same I guess there's 3 options level cap level reset between games or jsut let you do what you want
My concerns are more on the series as a whole than part 1. Midgar is what, 15-20% of the game? If they plan on keeping the scale, that would have to be 5 or so games, and around a decade of development. That's a lot to ask from consumers. And if Midgar is a full game, how will they deal with the overworld, thats much, much larger? Will they split the maps and take away the option to return to areas from other games?
Well it's probably a mistake to assume they'll do everything like midgar Midgar is a huge city that was very much unexplored
But paying $60 for the same COD, Madden an FIFA every year. thats ok
