Part 2 release date plans unchanged, says Square Enix.
This remake has been one of the messes. I loved FF VII a ton but after all this time, I feel Square dropped the ball on this one. I may even be more pissed if FF7 part 2 releases this year (if they made the whole game already but are holding out).
Dropped the ball...how, exactly? We asked for a Remake, we're getting a Remake. Now don't get me wrong, I was as bummed as the next person when the game was announced as multi-part, but from what I've seen so far it's going to be well worth it. Everything just looks better than I ever could have hoped for, and I can't freaking wait until April 10th.
I disagree. To me the remake exceeded expectations. Let me remind you of the FF7 tech demo from 2006. https://m.youtube.com/watch... People were only expecting this up until the real remake was revealed. As for splitting the game up, I don't mind at all as long as it's lengthy with the additional stories explored as they've mentioned. There's likely a good reason for the delay. I don't want a buggy game.
squireenix been dropping the ball for a while now
How, when they've made efforts to deliver better experiences to the likes of Hitman, Tomb Raider, and the like. Did you forget that they purchased the licenses to the above mentioned titles so that people would not have to go without them due to Chrystal Dynamics going under? That is effort if ever I've seen it. FF7 will deliver to the audience that its aimed at, it will not win over everyone, but it will push the envelope for the series. They may not be catering to your direct requests but they are making an effort to put something out. I'll never understand the demand to deliver what people, themselves, are not in a position to contribute to their efforts. If you're not adding to the results to deliver then you can only wait, buy it, or not. These are the only options to exercise, ultimately.
I am sure it will don't change the fact they been dragging there foot for a while now
It's hard to make money on story games these days, because corporations have taken over. Honestly if it costs me an extra $50 or whatever to get a good quality version of this, then yeah I'll pay.
Push it back a month I don't care if it means to iron out the bugs and add the final tweaks to the game I am happy. I just don't want a buggy pile of shit because its rushed out the door with out a second thought.
like most games so when you first put the disc in- BAM! theres a XX gigs of data update to download.
Square-Enix's middle name is delay.
It was only delayed one month... How much of an impact could it have possibly had on part 2 anyway?
1 month I guess
Since part two doesnt have a release date, I think it cant be delayed yet.
Nobody knows the release date of part 2. It could easily be delayed and we wouldn't even know.
This is true, but not the point. My point is that a 1 month delay is only small fish in the vast ocean that is fame development. With that in mind, a potential delay could at most be another month or even likely to not happen at all.
Part 2 is already in development so of course it would have no impact on it. Plus with Part 1 out of the way, they have all the heavy loading already figured out. The hunt for Sephiroth and exploring Gaia will be awesome next gen.
FF7R isn't getting a next-gen release, it was announced yesterday. It's going to playable via back-compat but each part of the Remake will be a current gen title. Hopefully the next gen consoles will enhance the gane but we won't be getting a next-gen exclusive from SE for quite some time.
Hopefully it's backwards compatible with enhancements on PS5.
How much do you believe that? Ofc they'd say that to not hurt sales
Just like kingdom heart had no plan to release the collections on ps4?
Making this game in parts is another reason why I'm not buying.
It's too big to be 1 game it would be on 10 disk if it was one game
excuses, it wasn't "too big" for the ps1. This is simply a ploy to chop the game up in parts and sell them all for $60 each.
You know the original had pre-rendered backgrounds purely to save space right? Of course the disk size is going to be way larger because they're not going down that route. The image files, models/assets, video will all be larger in size from PS1 due to the higher res detail. Then to factor in development time, the mechanics of every mini game was very basic. They're not going to be able to get away with having as simple mechanics for them as they did way back when. I don't like the releasing in parts either but I can understand why it' was necessary. 10 years is a long time to sit on some risk.
IT'S A CONSPRIACY!!!!11111 THE EBIL SQUEENIX IS TEAMING UP WITH EBIL EA AND ACTIVISION TO ROB US OF ALL OUR CASH!!! THE END IS NIGH!!!!!11111111111
Basically. It's 2020, we don't have 3 characters standing in a row, midi tracks, and prerendered backgrounds. In 2020 most games are 10-15 hours and each episode is expected to be 25+ hours. The game is already a huge value. Add the fact games prices drop dramatically a few months after release and I can't really blame them. Are they getting away with $15-20 on the nostalgia? Maybe a bit. I'd hope the next installment is $49, but for the most part it's a great deal.
I don't know for shore because it's to early to get my hands on it but if what square is saying is true this games main quest line is 40 hours long it it's midgar only and the only way to stretch midgar 40 hours in the original is to lvl grind for aries limit break if not for that then i would be right there with you but as I understand it your missing out
The first part is going to be much larger with Midgar than the original game. They basically made the Midgar section an entire game. More quests and story/character development.
This whole spreading of FF7 remake was justified by the fans because it would release sooner but unfortunately Squared played them all. Now we have a part 2 that mostly likely isnt releasing this year and I doubt it will be next year. The remake could have been something simple with with updated graphics and with the same traditional gameplay. What makes FF7 so special was the story, and gameplay mechanics and updating those would have suffice. Instead they insult the legacy of the game by overhauling the story and the gameplay. The gameplay could have been enhanced with updated features while leaving the beloved turnbased mechanics intact. People excited for this game are riding the nostalgia train and are being taken for a ride by square enix. Square could be working on the next FF16 but instead we are wasting time remaking a game. I can predict that the next mainline FF won't come until 2024
"The remake could have been something simple with with updated graphics and with the same traditional gameplay." You're aware that the Remaster of FFVII has been around for...some time? Go and play that. FFVII will always be FFVII, nothing can take that away from it.
Seems like hes suggesting more the REmake treatment (Resident Evil, Shadow Of The Colossus), i.e. remakes that don't treat their original iterations like they were mistakes.
"People excited for this game are riding the nostalgia train" says the person that wants to pay full price for a visual upgrade
What? This has got to be the dumbest, most non-story article ever. A game was delayed a month, who knows how far along they are on part 2. For all we know it'll be out in 3-4 years so who cares?
Way off topic but asking for help.. My son is starting to love how to draw but he is starting so not all that good lol. For a quick fix for now I blew his mind by putting the paper over the iPad,yea I know lol, but the damn image obviously moves around.. any way of grabbing an image and not have it move around while copying it?
Print it to paper.
A multi part series adds more to the story of Final Fantasy 7 and makes square enix more money. Lol
2028 is gonna be lit.
No need to worry. Part 2 is still being released in 10 years on PS6 as originally planned.
I really don't mind the delay, I'll be so busy playing Animal Crossing anyway (plus I still have Death Stranding to finish).
No but the sales of part 1 certainly well.
