            It's not a "typo" it was a decision by the translator at the time and printed in manuals, guides, and magazines for the years to follow.
            If you put the japanese characters for AERITH in google translate you get "Aeris".

              The translator that was like one guy who worked on the game in the Squaresoft/Sony of America co-publishing deal and had to do the entire thing in 30 days, resulting in "This guy are sick," "Beacause you are a puppet", etc etc? To put the name to everything after that fact was people getting their hands on the English copies and printing what was put to the game.

                Pretty sure that was Eidos' PC port where they tweaked some stuff, retranslated smidges of it and were dealing with some fricking beta build of the game where they had to reconstruct certain things to work properly, but they just opted to stick to Aeris because that was what was accepted at the time.

            It was not at all necessary to change her name to something that completely lacked any subtlety. In fact, them naming her Aerith because she’s supposed to be like the Earth is a perfect example of some of the WORST aspects of Japanese writing ever. Imagine butchering a character’s name because you can’t come up with a better way to make her fit a theme kek.

      I'd like to see something like this in the final game mostly because the game has been teasing so hard with the "hee hee look at these thirsty girls flirting with Cloud" but the legacy of 7 prevents them doing something so decisive so were left with this Disney channel tier relationships.

                The Aeirth date was very special and romantic and it was important to talk about Zack.

                The Tifa date didn't make sense. They talk about Zack for some reason, and then randomly kiss. No build-up.

                Yuffie's was sweet.

    OG had potholes, but the combat was fun and perfectly balanced
    Sephiroth felt like a menacing threat at all times, the anime art style didn't feel out of place, customizable menu screen is a nice touch, hidden things (Yuffie, Vincent, various materia, etc) were fun to discover or work for once you heard about it
    Rebirth and rebirth are AAA bloatware with filler side quests and mini games to make a 8 hour movie seem like 20ish hours, and if I wanted to be surprised, I'd play any other game while on shrooms and imagine I was playing ff7
    If it's marketed as a remake, it should've more closely followed the original, instead, it feels like a reboot, which, guessing by the RE scheme, reboot will probably be the subtitle

                And yet they've only released a survey about the game in Japan. You can cope it any way you want but they still care about their domestic market a lot, and considering that's the only market we've got some hard figures for it's had a huge drop off from Remake. The game isn't a flop, but their moronic decisions with the story and padding of Remake turned away way more players than even they probably thought

        lets put it this way: if you play with mouse and keyboard you fix nearly all of the control problems the game had short of menuing being kind of a pain. that STILL doesn't fix the awful linear level design, cramped corridors that close the camera in too much unless you go into the weird first person mode, the lack of proper accuracy inherent to Vincent's guns since the game relies on Lock-On so much, moronic shit like "march down a narrow walkway that has infinite exploding barrels going down it, you're probably going to take damage or waste ammo", the Cait Sith stealth mission, the UNGODLY awful writing, wangst and general plot details

        Square didn't know how to make a shooter and attached it to a brand that didn't really need a shooter, and it shows on both fronts.

    Voice acting in fantasy video games is always cringe, ruins my immersion, and shouldn't exist.
    It only exists because fricking zoomers and every subsequent generation are becoming more and more moronic, with less attention span, incapable of reading or using their imagination.

    Also the Advent Children character designs being used in every FF7 spinoff, prequel, sequel, etc are chinky and equally as cringe as the voice acting, ruining any experience I would have if I even bothered to play these unnecessary, fanfic-tier pieces of shit.

        Cid’s whole thing is that he’s abusive to his assistant and really wants to go to space. And they took both traits away from him

        • 2 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          Both those are likely in part 3. The space thing is not actually story relevant until their dealing with the Huge Materia.
          I don't think they'll do the abusive thing at this point because Cid seems a lot less... angry about the Space program at the moment? They'll likely tie it to whatever Ifanya did with Cid that caused him to have such strong memories about her.

          Not clue whether it'll actually pay off well or not, but solely for the sake of Rebirth, he was kinda dull.
          At least Vincent had his moment with the boss fight.

          His thing is realising that Shera was right and that being an butthole toward her was completely unjustified. They'll whitewash it though because you can't portray that in the current year even if it is to tell a story to show that it is wrong.

            They absolutely can portray it in current year, as long as it's not physical (due to Japanese content ratings; same reason they had to remove the punching Celes when she was captured part in future versions of FF6, because Japanese rating system changed after the original was already out).

            They just for some reason seem to have decided not to, but I cant think of why in the world that'd be.

          Rebirth is only long because of le open world and the abundance of minigames.

          Part 3 will simply have the snowboarding just after Aerith's death and the story will just continue. No need for Chocobo breeding since you'll just get gifted a gold one in almost every region in the game. They'll continue to do the Ubitower bullshit as well but that's completely optional unless you're going for Platinum.

          Omnislash will be gifted to Cloud after the Lifestream event so there's no reason to return to the Gold Saucer anymore. I think they'll bring Zangan to give Tifa her ultimate knuckles, Final Heaven. Barret will get his after you kill Hojo, Cid will get his early in Rocket Town, Vincent will get his in Lucrecia's cuck cave, Nanaki will get his somewhere and Cait Sith will get a giant, more powerful Moogle that looks like Xenogears

    Disagreed on that. Remake handles her better than OG, because they actually play around with her PTSD and show why she is the way she is. They also flesh out her friendship with Aerith far better, and shows her doing siht without Cloud.

    I was super optimistic about Remake, I definitely agreed that doing a 1:1 Remake with the exact same story beats probably wouldn't be satisfying.

      100 percent. the only point to changing it would be I guess making Aerith a Christ figure who rises from the dead but even then they fricked up her death and of course her becoming the lifestream is the whole point of her being the last Cetra and is her "coming back to life" anyways

      Of course it was, and I could have told you that 15 years ago.
      There's a good reason the original FF7 has had one of the biggest fanbases of any single video game in history.

      Do you see FF8 getting films made for it?
      Do you see FF9 getting 5+ spinoffs?
      Do you see FF10 getting 9000x the fan-art and hentai drawn of their female characters compared to other video game's female characters?
      No.

      Of course it was that fricking good, but Square Enix is a moronic company, run by fricking morons and thanks to weebs and trannies who promote trash like FF14, we have this dumpster fire of a "remake"

      Rebirth constantly foreshadows that she needs to be saved. The story itself knows that she can be saved and her death is avoidable. By saving her in an alt timeline they are pulling off the magic to keep her alive permanently in the ending. Remember the producer said he wants a happy ending this time, but not without drama. I'd say Aeriths current situation is that drama and it will eventually lead to that happy ending.

          The original Aeris is still in the lifestream and making an effort to change the timelines which involves keeping Zack and Aerith alive. She doesn't need to die again. Its also never proven that she needed to die in the first place to cast holy since she died before she was able to learn to use it. If she were alive she could have casted it, or alternatively have Aeris send her the secret needed to do so.

                Good question for discussion. Every date is a different timeline for Cloud, and since timelimes are able to converge and overlap, it really doesn't matter at the end since all can become canon. You could just say Aerith's date is canon, and theres a lot of evidence to support they could just do that (the ending credits, Rosa being Aerith 4/6 times, Remake garden scene being canon, etc). I personally think there is one Cloud that experiences all of the dates and no matter what it leads to Cloud ending up with Aerith, and possibly Tifa too.

Nothing really suggests that the planet ever thrives again. Seeing Neo Midgar finally built and a flourishing green planet would be a happy ending for the planet.

          In the original game, the lifeforce of all of Gaia was enough to turn Sephiroth into a god. But with the multiverse there are infinite Gaias and infinity sources of power for Sephiroth to feed off of. Just for example, the Zack world that gets engulfed by the meteor in the ending should have given Sephiroth the power of Godhood from that alone.
          As far as other planets its unclear. Gis are aliens and can't die because they don't belong on the planet. You'd think they could return to their own planet, but it doesn't seem to be the case for them. Perhaps only Gaia has a lifestream.

            Based on the narrative told by Sephiroth and the scenes you see with Zack/Biggs, all of the alternate worlds within the planet are already dying. When Zack confronts Biggs inside that Reactor, that Lifestream is already completely dead, which is the opposite of what Sephiroth wants.

              Sephiroth says some perish quickly and some persist longer than others, but all worlds are doomed in his eyes. So there is absolutely more than one world thats able to survive. Whats important is the scene in the garden where Aerith's flowers start to regrow in a doomed world. It shows that worlds can defy their fate and survive. Also if theres only one Sephiroth, he'd only need to be stopped once to free all the other worlds from being doomed by meteor.

                Anonymous

                I'm too lazy to go look for the scene you're talking about, but as far as I remember, it's only shown the alternate worlds can "defy their fate" at the end when you see Zack wake up back in the church again. Before that moment, they make it very clear that Zack/Biggs/those worlds will all end no matter what they do.

                All worlds are "doomed", even the main one, as the Lifestream is not an infinite source in any of the worlds, it's always a limited resource. However, the rest of those worlds are pretty strongly implied to be very fricked up, for lack of a better term.

                I would imagine there are many Sephiroth's just like there are many of everyone, each belonging to a world. If there weren't, then the same would probably be true of Aerith, and if she actually is dead, then the group is already giga-fricked.

                Also, Gi Nattak explained that the Earth/Gaia overtook "their star", killing off most of the Gi, and they few who remained began living on Earth/Gaia

                That's the exact scene I'm referencing. He says "Some quickly perish, while others endure. Yet even the most resilient worlds are doomed to fade." Meaning no matter the choices made, they should all meet the same fate (or so he thinks). The game continues to validate this line of thinking by showing you both choices that Zack makes in different worlds, and him presumably dying the same he is suppose to, regardless. The time you're shown that Sephiroth might be wrong is AFTER you beat him, presumably because now Aerith/the planet have "breached the boundaries of fate" and possibly created new outcomes.

                So basically, Sephiroth wasn't planning on any of those worlds to persist, which is why he very clearly needs the Prime world (and a temporary merger with another world) to accomplish his goal. If it were as simple as "travel to the infinite amount of worlds and just absorb the Lifestream", the game would be over already

        Realistically how can the party even win? Do they find some way to erase the Gi from their suffering/existence and apply the same thing to Sephiroth?

        In the grand scheme of things, what changes? Our core story's big differences are characters being rearranged in how/where and Cloud having the Black Materia again along with an empty White Materia. Sephiroth's plans failed so this timeline keeps going on with Meteorfall, and Aerith's ghost stays behind so fundamentally she serves the same purpose of being dead anyway. The big changes will probably pay off at the end and they'll re-merge Zack stuff and so forth, but at the end of the day, the story is still exactly on the same course otherwise besides Cloud being even crazier.

          The situation that the original game ended on left the planet pretty fricked up and it really doesn't really get any better after AC. Remake Part 3 will still lead to a standoff with Sephiroth, but its the aftermath which will completely diverge from the original.

                the Promised Land is quite literally the afterlife/inner reserves of the Lifestream in the planet. the entire point was that it was either unattainable as a dream, or would've killed the Planet if it was somehow attained. this wasn't really ambiguous or sheltered away from the player, it was all but said. That's the goal of Shinra, to skip past making reactors that simply try to draw from a decent point and going straight to the source for Neo-Midgar.

                Thats an interpretation of what it could be, but I think theres something more, as they continue to bring it up throughout the compilation and beyond, as well as Rebirth.

    What role could Zack have in part three that would make him a worthwhile addition?
    Tifagays won't like it, but I think he deserves at least a portion of fixing Cloud's mind in the Lifestream.
    Other than that, maybe he ropes up Sephy's old amigos and helps defeat him with the power of friendship.

      I like the idea that he will fall into the mako reactor while revisiting Gongaga, and Tifa will run into him through the lifestream, and both will help Cloud fix his mind. They'll also put the pieces together about Aerith and learn she Cloud saved her in a different world.

    Isn’t it oddly suspicious that the overlap of people that think Aerith is dead pretty significantly correlates with being a ginormous dogmatic Tifagay?

      She’s both dead and alive. Cloud created another timeline where she survived, and that Aerith is who we see at the end of the game. However, the time jannies corrected the main timeline that we’re currently following by keeping her dead.

      He’s a failed Jenova experiment who spews pretentious bullshit at you from a shitty novel that he reads. That’s it.

    • 2 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      There were 2 Jenova Projects at Shinra. Project S which produced Sephroth and Project G which produced Genesis (amongst others). G was the inferior project and Genesis was both weaker and unstable on the cellular level so his body began to degrade (the degradation you hear about in Rebirth)

      Genesis defects from Shinra to try to find a cure and comes to believe that his salvation will come from re-enacting Loveless and getting the gift of the goddess. Hijinx ensue but ultimately he comes face to face with a being called Minerva who is basically the personification of the planets will. In exchange for having his degredation cured he submits to the planet's will and becomes its champion. He then goes into hibernation until such time the planet is in great peril where he'll awaken and defend it.

      Which is why his absence from the trilogy is a bit jarring if it's supposed to be a compilation title. The current crisis is surely dire enough for him to awaken.

        Apparently Reeve has some inherent power called "Inspire" or some shit that lets him bring his mechanical creations to life as a part of himself or some shit, but no, the games never say this, and there isn't actually any in-depth logic, explanation, materia or anything given. It just happens and someone says it works so it does.

          There was a cut scene where he shuts down every reactor with his inspire power, I wonder if they'll keep it in part 3
          It's ridiculous though, he could just have used a manipulate materia

          That’s fine I guess. I’ve seen “puppet master” as a reoccurring trope in Japanese media so it’s probably based some Shinto folklore that hasn’t been widely translated over. Dragon’s Crown and Valkyrie Profile 2 are two Japanese games I can think of that have the same trope

        The time that Dirge of Cerberus came out was kind of an "edgy everything" era of video games.
        Prince of Persia was turned overally edgy in Warrior Within, and they spun Sonic the Hedgehog with Shadow and gave him fricking guns.
        Vincent spinoff sort of made sense during that time.

                She probably will betray the party but out of fear. They made is clear that Yuffie's main issue is that she's too scared to do anything to protect or help those she cares for.

              If anything, it'll make even more sense than it did in the OG. Wutai + Avalanche HQ and Shinra will most likely be in a full-fledged war by the time the group shows up there, so Yuffie will probably feel like the best way she can help her people is stealing the group's materia or something along those lines.

      I think she’s going to snap at Cloud for something small like pressing them on when they’re reminiscing about Aerith and she’ll call him out on being nonchalant about her supposed death, Cloud will claim she’s alive, Tifa will get really upset, Barret will punch Cloud and everyone but Red and Vincent will stay with Cloud because they’re the only ones that believe him. It cuts off the Little Bronco for use and gives you just enough characters, with one of them being new to try out, for a 3 party team to use.
