      the frick do they think the point of the affinity system is? why are they so fricking dense? men don't just have "friends" like that. be a shipper if you want, but it's obvious Cloud has interest in both girls, and due to Aerith dying you never see how it would have developed.

              No shit he had a crush on her as a kid homosexual, it’s a known fact. That’s not some major revelation. Cloud being open and honest about his past childhood feelings for Tifa while with Aerith at that same place as an adult showcases a natural progression for Cloud and Aerith’s relationship. It then lends itself to Aerith being vunerable and honest about her past feelings in the second conversation. But I guess as a Clotigay you wouldn’t know anything about having healthy relationships or honest conversations

        The more i think about it, more i realize that Aerith prime being the one in the dream date makes things even worse for Cloti because if she knows the future, she would know if Cloud truly loves Tifa or not and woudnt go to a date with him. But she still does. Which causes some interesting implications.

            Elaborate more, because that's my point. If that is OG Aerith, she knows the true Cloud and the whole thing going on with him, also if he truly loves Tifa or not. The fact she still goes to a last romantic date with him and wonders if he truly loves her back with the "next time" line says how there is nothing actual canon couple-wise at the end of ff7.

              She on that date to know if cloud has feelings for her. She never was able to ask or get somewhat of an answer. And in this one it's very subtle for reasons. But she says "She now knows where both of them stand" depending on your intimate meter with her. Either it's a love confession of cloud or not. But it's made very subtle.

                Because if this is og aerith she would know if Cloud and Tifa actually become a canon couple at the end of ff7. If that happened i doubt she would go to a date with cloud and even ask if he loves her, because Tifa would be Cloud's true love and she would know that.

                I think it makes sense because even scenes like the highwind in the og game are stated to be based on affinity. In the LA cloud is indifferent in the scene(stated in the ultimania), only in the HA it goes very romantic.
                So it makes sense they would never try to canonize something like that and keep it open.

                Pic related. You can even use google lens, it says that depending on the affinity level the resolution scene is more significative.

                They are spreading that mistranslated pic for so long that i feel like they fooled themselves. I really wonder if Clotis themselves know it can be something missable and not as canon as they believe. How if your affinity is low it isnt romantic at all.

                Like, if you are deranged you could just assume nojima is writing aerith as a villain and homewercker who wants to steal Cloud from Tifa even knowing that he "truly loves her". But if you take your meds and think a bit we can see how for Aerith there isnt anything confirmed, that's why she takes him in that date and at least wants to know how he feels about her. And yes this damages the cloti idea that Cloud and Tifa end up together.

                In japanese is more clear, she says that they don't have many memories, he replays saying the will make more, she asks if those are his true feelings, he says yes.

          hmm
          Makes sense, she would know the whole plot and if they end up together. If she does that, it implies they dont at least in Aerith's perception. Aerith is someone who kept watching over Cloud even after she died in OG.

          Elaborate more, because that's my point. If that is OG Aerith, she knows the true Cloud and the whole thing going on with him, also if he truly loves Tifa or not. The fact she still goes to a last romantic date with him and wonders if he truly loves her back with the "next time" line says how there is nothing actual canon couple-wise at the end of ff7.

          These games say a lot with simple scenes like that. I wish more people started thinking about how big those scenes are knowing she is OG Aerith.

    This is real Cloud, the same type of personality he was before he left for SOLDIER. When Tifa says his eyes seem different in Remake, obviously talking about the fact that they used to be warmer and more kind, this Rebirth scene is what he was.

    Cloud established that he sees Aerith as a friend at the end of their date. Aerith establishes that she likes Cloud and sees him as an important person, but doesn't know if it's romantic. Aerith took Cloud to a date to mirror her date with Zack, but Cloud was weirded out and showed her he's a separate being from Zack, but still important to her. It seemed like it was a way of her's to take Zack's personality out of Cloud to get him closer to being his true self. She didn't pick Zack to being her last date because she knew they would be together in the LS.

                There's another major reunion that she's set up with. One that the devs have been keenly propping up throughout the Remakes. Bringing Zack into the story to not have their reunion achieved would be far too contrived with the emphasis he's been given. They also said they want to end the remakes on a happy note, so that's a major hint for how the ending will shape to be.

                It's an unsatisfied promise because Cloud isn't his real self whom Tifa is saved by. The Reunion shit is Sephiroth's goal, but that doesn't take away from its drive in the characters of the story. They've been drilling in the idea of significance of the reunion flowers, so it's hard to miss the obvious.

                I'm saying that because Tifa and Cloud are together and have formed a family in AC, but it's not an in your face declaration of their relationship. They've stated that the remakes will end up with the same ending of AC, making that ending inevitable. As for the set up, the biggest thing to see is that Cloud is himself when he's with Tifa.

                Because the way the circumstances are written they never actually settled down together and formed a family of their own volition. Barret dumped one of the kids on them and Cloud found the other in a dumpster. It's deliberately written that way so that Tifa fans can enjoy the family imagery and everyone else can see that it's not quite what it looks like on the surface.

        1-cloud is rejecting her

    Tifa realized Cloud didn't seem right and thought throughout the whole remake that something was wrong with him. In Rebirth she gets a few pieces of the puzzle. We know she's going to be the one to bring out the real Cloud back, and we're going to see that in the third game, fulfilling Tifa and Cloud's reunion.

Disregarding the Re-trilogy Ultimanias which are just full of Aerith, the fricking game itself has Aerith Rosa in the credits (completely btfo’s Tifa and Yuffie’s dates right there) and every key point of Aerith’s HA GS date is repeated in the main story

              Male streamers are definitely into Tifa for the boobs, but women are usually sold into the promise/childhood romance relationship. It also helps that Tifa is introduced properly earlier.
              It's weird to me because Aerith stands out more to me since the begininng. Her design, her first impression, her story, her quirks, everything is developed with more care and detail than the rest of the cast.
              I think the devs did the best as they can to shill Aerith to the players in both games, but maybe Tifa is just too strong.

                I thought it was funny how briefly after you're introduced to Tifa in remake, that is when you start seeing the crappy non-cutscene dialogue between characters where the animations are unpolished as she shows you around the slums. I noticed Rebirth made those much better animated.

      the game is clearly "Cloud has interest in both, but due to the tragic death of Aerith, we never see how their relationship could have developed." You have to be moronic to think the developers didn't deliberately present both girls as a love interest after all the constant hints and flirting between the characters.

                Sephiroth plan is to reunite the different timeline, he wanted Cloud to save Aerith, fuse the timelines and break him making him see Aerith die anyway, he talks about emotions, grief transforming good emotions in negative ones.

                It's not her presence. It's the fact she knows that tifa is gonna help him find himself in the lifestream. Right now tifa is a wreck and is not helping cloud at all since she is scared.

                There is a reason why aerith made a weapon eat tifa and show her her past that she forgot.

                Where was it implied it was Aerith that made the Weapon eat her? And no, see what I wrote above, Sephiroth's plan always involved breaking Cloud and positive emotions turning negative

                Are we to assume Aerith was just killed instantly, and Cloud was just imagining Aerith touching his face in her last moments to comfort him? When the party sees her body her eyes are closed and probably already dead, which would mean Cloud his holding her hand up to her face himself, pretending she's the one doing it, which is pretty disturbing and kino.

                They are there right at the beginning when she is about to see nibelheim flashbacks.

                I know but this is not something you need to be spelled out to you, it's something you can just infere.
                It has nothing to do with the game making sense or not.

                And I hope part 3 will make a better job with that. It already did it in rebirth with cloud getting more and more mindbroken in the temple.

          It's not her presence. It's the fact she knows that tifa is gonna help him find himself in the lifestream. Right now tifa is a wreck and is not helping cloud at all since she is scared.

                Aerith got two instead, chapter 8 and 9, and they are more romantic with each other.

    I literally just finished it. I dunno if I’ll enjoy hard mode on this game like I did remake, I already felt some of the fights were gay bullshit and the movie moments where you walk at a snail pace are infuriating. But I did enjoy the gameplay and story until the last chapter.

    One thing that annoyed me was Aerith saying cloud reminds her of Zack. b***h, how?! He’s completely fricking different. Literally the total opposite personality. I can’t take her romantic feelings seriously, it feels like she’s just coping hard to push that cloud is like Zack to justify her feelings for Cloud when she really doesn’t know him at all

        Because if this is og aerith she would know if Cloud and Tifa actually become a canon couple at the end of ff7. If that happened i doubt she would go to a date with cloud and even ask if he loves her, because Tifa would be Cloud's true love and she would know that.
        For frick's sake if this is post AC aerith she would even know if they actually become a family.

        Like, if you are deranged you could just assume nojima is writing aerith as a villain and homewercker who wants to steal Cloud from Tifa even knowing that he "truly loves her". But if you take your meds and think a bit we can see how for Aerith there isnt anything confirmed, that's why she takes him in that date and at least wants to know how he feels about her. And yes this damages the cloti idea that Cloud and Tifa end up together.

    Thematically, it does not make sense to end in AC, nor it is to actually rescreen the movie before the release of Rebirth if it would just spoil the ending.
    We are at the unknown territory right now, and the story has been altered too much from the original. If it would end just the same as the OG, it would piss off more people than it does satisfy.

      Her original non-Cloud plot points were to rediscover what her childhood was like instead of what she gaslighted herself to believe it was (already done in Rebirth), opening up about being depressed rather than maintaining her cheerful facade (Can't be used in the Remake from the start) and letting go off her hyper-jealousy in the ending sequence. Beyond those her plot point of now having a non-destroyed place to belong can be with her friends.

        I don't think so, more like main Cloud took over the body of vegetable Cloud in the other reality. And Aerith said think of it as a dream, not that it's literally a dream. Then Sephiroth says Aerith has been hiding in a world that has accepted its faith, so it's clearly a real world. But most importantly, Aerith pushes Cloud back into the main world with the rainbow effect, and he physically brought Aerith's materia with him, which I highly doubt you can get from a dream.

    Evidence Aerith is dead: All the other party members, Sephiroth telling Cloud "You'll never see the truth with such clouded eyes", Cloud's mind flashes which happen when his mind rejects reality, Lifestream Aerith's direct involvement, Aerith being stabbed by Sephiroth.

      I actually had a discussion with a buddy of mine recently about this. If the game came shortly after the 2015 trailer, it would have been quite faithful. I’m talking one-to-one dialogue from the original to save time on the script. Maybe, it would be forgettable or seen as a remaster but it would have sold blockbuster names if it released in 2015-2016. I still think they did the release in three different parts and new story beats to follow the latest trends. If it was one big game, I don’t think they would do anything different key it.

      I stopped wanting a remake in 2003. I knew the degradation. It would've been much better than it is, but it would've still been awful. The only chance of us getting a good remake now is, if it's HD-2D with original mimicking or brand new designs. Only that could have the focus to keep the experience moving and substantial, while feeling new and not require exuberant budget and workhours to be feasible.

              >dk where you've got Tifa damsel in distress from
              The fight at the pillar, Cloud's about to get the Turks and she whines for Cloud, distracts him even though she's fine then five minutes later, gets up on her own without needing help.
              That's just one of the examples and it's most prevalent around Cloud, is fricking annoying.

              The worst part about Tifa is that she's perfectly capable but chooses to be a damsel whenever Cloud is around. It's fricking pathetic. That stuff works with Aerith because she is genuinely genuinely vulnerable enough to need it but that's just not true with Tifa.

          Obviously it won't be always but you know how stupid shippers are.

          nah she literally gets random raids by people accusing her of not being nice enough to tifa and wanting the aerith date
          Pretty sure they made her cry in Remake, because she dared to call tifa second best girl

            What a crime, wanting a date with Aerith, as if she wasn't a fricking option the game gives you

      She's wasted in the role. She's the only one who actually emotes properly and doesn't just do le anime voice. Barrett was a good choice too. Cloud just sounds too flat and uninterested
      >hurr he's supposed to
      That's 20 years of Kingdom Hearts/Advent Calendar tier emo shit writing. In the original game I felt like there was a kind of childishness to him, sort of emphasising his cognitive dissonance in thinking he is Zack but his own obliviousness slips through the cracks from time to time.

    If the writers were based, they'd just end the 30 year shipping debate with Cloud getting with is moms friend.

    Its wild that every instance if "optional" CA in Remake became canon in Rebirth, and all of the same signs are pointing that it will be canon in R3

      Not only that but Ultimania and the OST only use CA stuff for the romance descriptions or the illustrations.

      They will no doubt let you pick but it's going to be obvious who the Yennifer of this series is.

        apparently not, since the majority of the shippers like Tifa, I have yet to get the reasons why

      The assumption is that he knows because he was the one who buried her.

              No, because Cloud buried her.

                Nta and I do think she was buried but that says nothing about Cloud dropping her in the water.

                Even if he did, they can still piece together that he is blocking it from his mind. He is going to speak about aerith like she is alive in part3, while for the party they clearly think she is dead

                It's very simple: Cloud burying Aerith is a super iconic scene, they have to have that in Remake. He did it and he blocked that reality. The simplest explanation is the most logical answer.

                They will because it will be part of the conflict but she will still be alive in the other timeline/dimension

                Well yes we will see it in part3, maybe revealed to cloud by sephiroth or in the lfiestream sequence. Thing is there is a timeline in which she survived, so for cloud it will be extra confusing. Lifestream sequence might end up fricking him up more than fixing him

                Well I don't believe she's alive and there is no other timeline. In the ending it was lifestream Aerith saying her goodbyes and illusion Aerith edging Cloud on to the northern crater. But yeah, super iconic scene, doesn't mean anything because a) Cloud thinks she's alive and b) she's gonna come back. Cloud is just gonna go hey how was your trip to the capital?

      They probably try and bring it up but he blocks it out via headache etc. So they don't keep pushing

      Maybe? I'd be cautious about talking to a guy who can cleave me in half about the girl he says is still alive being dead.

    Now that we have a better idea where the story is going I think I can safely say that I wish the plot was more overtly focused on Cloud using the magic of the Lifestream to go back in time and try over and over to defy fate and save Aerith. What we have now is a weird middle ground of the same thing as a sequel but also a remake
