    The Remake

    So.

    Hey everyone.

    I hope you are doing well.

    Covid be damned.

    But I am making this post because I wanted to speak on the FF7 Remake.

    Who here has played it/seen it played/looked up stuff/etc, because I don't want to spoil it.

    I'm in the process of playing it. Currently I've just gotten to Aeris' (still refuse the proper name, Aeris sounds so much prettier). I absolutely love it. It really gives so much more depth to everything.

    Obviously I know the original story back and forth, but getting to know the other characters, especially the crew in avalanche, it makes the upcoming events cut so much deeper. I know how in the first game, Jessie was a kind of whatever character, who helped you along in the beginning, but seeing the new connection with Cloud and knowing how it ends makes you feel.

    Seeing Aeris fully fleshed out, plus her fully orchrestated music has the same effect on me.

    Honestly, if I had never played the game before, I would be pulling for Cloud and Jessie. And that's what kills me, had the game been fully fleshed out from the beginning. It doesn't hurt that she's kinda hot and super bubbly too.

    But aside from that, I'm just loving everything so far. I love that you can fully appreciate the size of Midgar, as well as how the slums are what they are vs the suburbs of the upper plates.

    The combat system is also decent. I like that you can't beat all of the bosses by only focusing on just one character, though I didn't realize that you had to actually play as the others to develop their skills until later than I had wanted.

    Overall, I'm loving it. I just wish that there would be more once I left Midgar

    Not really eager to play this given it will come out in episodes, plus Midgar is my least favorite part of the original. I did bother to keep up with the development, I've seen the trailers, read the news, it looks good if nothing else. Was interested how much they changed/added story wise, and boy o boy...

    SPOILER!!:
    this is some Kingdom Hearts convoluted level of bullshit. Time travel? Different timelines? The ending of the original is now somehow the worst outcome. Really? I expected they will add some padding, hopefuly fill some holes, but this is over the top. They're changing the story quite a bit, but then again it's Nomura we're talking about here and his crazy ass so it was bound to happen.


    I reckon a lot of fans will be pissed, I'm so glad I'm not invested in FF VII all that much.

    Thank you, Xanatos. Those were my thoughts exactly.

    I wanted to come into this forum and shout to the rooftops:

    SPOILER!!:
    It is *not* a remake! It's Nomura! I watched some cutscenes and I was like... "Uh, what? I don't remember this at all. Or this. Or that. Wait a moment! It's... Nomuraaaaaa! Damn you! You've struck again! First you take Kingdom Hearts from me, which is fine, because that was insane insanities to begin with, but now you are attempting to rewrite my childhood? That's fine. There's always modded PC versions of the original. Thanks for letting me rant, as childish as it might seem, haha. - But aren't they like, technically lying? This is basically FF7 2: Days of Past's Present's Future's Deuce Dropping Distance, haha. It's not really a remake, neither in gameplay nor story. But like I said, modded PC versions of the original, haha. I'll get over it.


    -Edit-

    Actually, I think I may have figured this out.

    SPOILER!!:
    Based on the strange ending of KH3 and its DLCs, and everything that occurs in the FF7 remake, I do believe that Nomura is attempting to create a... Final Fantasy Cinematic Universe.

    I really enjoy the FFVII remake. I beat the entirety of Part 1 and I am already on a 2nd playthrough and am up to Chapter 13. I love how in-depth the story is and the narration and character development involved. Square did a really good job making this game into a cinematic experience. The combat took some time getting used to but I am getting better at it as I go along. The addition of unique weapon skills are pretty cool and make for a nice strategic experience, and the skill trees are nice for enhancing your weapons, the grid reminds me of FF13's crystarium.


    The remastered tracks are really nice giving the game a serious and epic feel when it comes to combat and the smooth and sweet songs for calm and emotional moments. The amount of effort that went into this remake really shows and I am looking forward to the newer parts of the remake story.


    I'll talk about any negativities and thoughts on the game and story in the spoiler section.
    SPOILER!!:
    One of my gripes with the remake are those whispers, they feel out of place in the game world. I understand they are there to ensure the game's story plays out as intended, but their presence doesn't make sense at all. Hopefully there will be a better explanation in part 2. The selection of accessories are kind of lackluster, they don't really have any accessories throughout the game to help protect you from statuses like sleep, silence, and toad. I mean you can use elemental materia to help prevent that and I might have overlooked a colosseum battle that may have an equipment for that.


    I'm pretty sure when those whispers are talking, when they feel the story is going out of sequence, they are saying: "Cloud, you can't do that! You've changed history. You've created a Time Paradox!" That battle at the very end of the game before the final battle was quite bizarre when you're up against the Whisper Harbinger, it was an epic battle, but at the same time it was like Kingdom Hearts level of bizarre. I loved the theme of teamwork when the party is fighting sephiroth, starting with a 1 vs 1 with cloud and sephiroth and then more characters step in to help.


    I'm actually ok with the story getting a twist, I wouldn't mind seeing how it unfolds seeing the party went into an alternate reality. Because of the ending events of the game, I'm convinced that there is a possibility that Sephiroth isn't the main villain in this game, that there is a bigger threat. Maybe an entity that controls the flow of destiny in the game that is responsible for the whisper harbinger and sending Jenova to Gaia? Maybe Jenova will have more of a role than it did in the original game?
