>another empty corridor
>more walking with nothing happening
>more shitty dialogue from Aerith
can't wait bros
dont forget forced animation climbing/crawling/squeezing through segments up your ass
>FFXVI which is a PS5 exclusive even has this shit
Most games have some sort of loading screen obfuscating.
God of War on the PS2 had a ton of this.
BUT MUH SUPER POWERED SSD
It is. It won't be out on PC for like 2+ years.
By that time it will be properly patched and with dlc. Fuck ps5 bullshit
I can by 5 ps5 with my pc lmao. Why is it always money with snoys. Jesus
sure you can poor
Ganker told me it only happened constantly in FFVIIR because it was on PS4 too. Please tell me FFXVI isn't going to be a squeezing through obstacle simulator.
Lol didn't you see the latest trailer, anon?
It will be a QTE-through-the-obstacle simulator
first thing shown in the 45 gameplay trailer is a qte to open a fucking gate
unlikely, they're dropping PS4 for this release right?
I dont think those were hidden loading screens
they were there to obviously inflate the playing time, since even with hours of that shit, the game barely breaks 15-16 hours
see post directly above yours
probably, they already said stuff in interviews
>zoomer doesnt know what a teaser is
>fuck I can't defend this
>uh uh z-zoomer haha
I fucking love seeing them do this shit.
They have no argument so they resort to attacking your character instead
Fucking love SE drones man
They're so whipped and pathetic it's like watching a hooker sniffing cocaine from the bare dirty ground.
Shit's pretty amusing, all things considered.
Yeah man, im not bothered at all by them liking the game.
Hey that's cool with me.
One man's trash is another man's treasure and all that.
I'm laughing at SE for making yet another failure.
If they go under for this shit I'll celebrate. They have it coming and I'm sure even you can agree to that.
There's just no fucking excuse why any company should get away with such a lack of talent and resourcefulness. They're managed and directed by some of the most worthless people in the industry.
Every remaster is a fucking blunder.
They're more motivated by monetization than by actual gameplay improvements.
Hey you can like the shit they plop down on your plate, but don't get mad at me for laughing at you.
They can't learn from their mistakes. They're too stupid, and let's be real, you're the one eating shit.
Thanks for the support but im not reading all this
Bro 'ill be honest this reply looks like the wojak crying but wearing a laughing mask.
He's right though. Are you mad? Honest question.
fpbp - imagine still caring about this dogshit fanfic bullshit
I enjoy Aeris' dialog
good for you retard
Most of us just wanted to kick her down the rusty ladder. She is so insanely insufferable.
Tifatards deserve the rope

also where are the forced walk n' talk segments in the original

Alzheimer's already kicking in I see.
those aren't walk n talk segments you fucking retarded mongoloid
can't stand you cunts who need to attack the original to defend this turd
I love how that's the best they could do after 10+ years
oops I meant 20+ not 10+
even more embarrassing for SE
yeah and these fucking idiots eat it up and call it a masterpiece
spoony was right about squeenix drones
Ok, Adam Sessler
The rope in ready. The end of this Yuga will kill you.
Original game was flawed, not shit. The rest is all correct.
the last S-E attempted an open world game, it didn't go well...
the open world in this game was fine though
NPC teammate who casually destroys all the encounters while you get shit on in one hit and then he revives you after it's over just to rub the humiliation in further.
>green and blue materia
Oh no Sephiroth took away his pre-emptive materia... bros... not like this...
Not sure what they'll do here. Cloud is canonically a push over at this point. He's a blue SHINRA uniform goon. Zack is a SOLDIER, but not very powerful compared to future Cloud/Sephiroth. You'll probably be Future Cloud reliving a distorted version of Nibelheim ala lifestream flashbacks.
>Oh no Sephiroth took away his pre-emptive materia... bros... not like this...
>implying nu-square is even aware of that reference
>Not sure what they'll do here. Cloud is canonically a push over at this point. He's a blue SHINRA uniform goon. Zack is a SOLDIER, but not very powerful compared to future Cloud/Sephiroth. You'll probably be Future Cloud reliving a distorted version of Nibelheim ala lifestream flashbacks.
have you ever played FF7 or not?
Yes, have you?
Then, how can you claim that
>yeee i dunno what are they gonna do, cloud is a blue shinra uniform goon?
when in the original it is established that Cloud is in zack position, therefore hes not a pushoever at all, just not as strong as sephiroth?
But thats how it is. Cloud is just a random shinra soldier during the nibelheim incident
But cloud doesnt know it, he thinks hes the hot shot soldier. thats the point of the flashback. Unless you pretend they wont do it for some reason.
You think they're gonna make you play as a literally useless character for the entirety of a game? It's not going to be the same if they do the flashback. I rather suspect the screenshot is a red herring.
>You think they're gonna make you play as a literally useless character for the entirety of a game?
why useless? cloud is a soldier in this flashback.
>I rather suspect the screenshot is a red herring
They already confirmed it is the flashback. Not that it needed confirming.
They will make you play with both of them. Having control of sephiroth in the flashback will be an even better way to showcase how strong he is
The flashback is also perfect for a tutorial
This is why skipping the travel until kalm makes sense
At Nibelheim, Sephiroth and Zack are accompanied by two blue Shinra goons. Zack is not as strong as Sephiroth by a long shot. Cloud is one of the two blue Shinra goons and is significantly weaker than either Zack or Sephiroth.
They're clearly not going to do the same thing as they did in the original game where it tries to mislead you into thinking Cloud was SOLDIER First Class at Nibelheim, because he wasn't, and that jig was up over 20 years ago.
Of course, them showing Sephiroth could just be trying to mislead us into thinking they're doing the flashback at all.
>They're clearly not going to do the same thing as they did in the original game where it tries to mislead you into thinking Cloud was SOLDIER First Class at Nibelheim, because he wasn't, and that jig was up over 20 years ago.
99% of people who play FFVII today don't know this plot twist. All they know is that the waifu dies.
I agree. 80% of Ganker doesnt remember what happpens after you leave midgar. But seems like they are setting up another mistery now, it isnt just about cloud being insane. They are doing the whole plot of "what the fuck is sephiroth even planning to do now?"
Mistery is fun when you love the characters and setting and lore enough to be satisfied regardless of the outcome
Kinda similar to the original. Most of the game we are just running aroung having no idea of what he is even doing
You guys are interpreting this as the Nibelheim flashback? I thought it was just more 'We need to have Sephiroth pop up every 5 minutes for fan service', so it's basically just the Sephiroth from the end of Part 1, who's strangely obsessed with Cloud.
So, do you think the trailer showcasing the flashback shouldnt have sephiroth?
It it like doing a trailer of the bombing mission without barret. It is the first plot point of the next part.
You need to work on your reading comprehension.
I did understand what you said. The point is, the literal first important thing that happens when remake ends is going to kalm and getting the flashback
You thinking that scene of the trailer is a super plotwist is more based on mental gymnastics than following basic logic
What plot twist are you talking about? Your party will go to Nibehleim eventually. I thought they were showcasing the journey to Nibelheim, and they decided to have some weird thing where Sephiroth is in Cloud's head or something. That's not at all out of character with the first part. They did everything they could to show Sephiroth on screen as often as possible, short of making him a party member.
I can see your logic. But it is a super jump anyway. Pointing that scene as the flashback is the most natural resolution because it is what happens in the OG FF7 in less than 30 min when you leave midgar.
A section where you get sephiroth and cloud together. Simple
It's not a super jump, but I accept that it is less likely than the flashback scene that was already in the original. In my memory I thought Cloud always appeared as the blue soldier grunt in the flashback, but according to screenshots above, that's not the case.
No, this is something that only happens when he discovers he isnt a soldier. You will only see in the first flashback: Sephiiroth, Cloud(Zack) and 2 grunts(one that should be cloud). This is why this Rebirth teaser makes total sense as the flashback
Of course he hasn't. He's complaining about this scene.
Why does Square have such a fetish for sideways mountains?
>progress on the world map can literally be gauged as a straight line
Nice one, made me giggle.
Thanks, White power
Maybe if Kalm flashback is in the game, they will probably alter it like they have done with everything else so far
>Crisis Core a few months ago
>Ever Crisis this summer
>Rebirth this winter
This is the year of FFVII, Gankerros.
Im also unironically interested in that one mobile game
>episodic mobile remake with a focus on fanfic what if scenarios
Now go reply to the next one
Wondering if Ever Crisis will have a pc version. Would be a lot better
yay more compilation garbage
yes give me more nipslop bugmen
I hope we get some news in april
You're not getting any news until after the super FFXVI comes out. You plebs will just have to wait.
I wouldnt really mind, i want to play Rebirth more but 16 will also be good.
16 will be vastly superior to this trash.
It isn't working. Try a bit harder.
based competent team not full of washed up hacks trying and failing to be creative
It's just a shame Ishikawa isn't writing this one.
At least it's the Heavensward team, and not Nojima.
He definitelly wanted to start some discourse about 16 vs 7R lol
He didnt wanted, he is actually trying.
He should've chosen another guy, he is a complete retard if he thinks i'll go over 500 posts fighting about games of the same franchise.
stop talking to yourself schizo
They can have some gameplay reveals for new characters, like vincent
Vincent's combat will be peak fiction, we just know.
Having an actual party with him, cait and cid is great
With FF16 coming out this June as well, Squeenix is really zooming full speed ahead with Final Fantasy this year
Dont forget how there is a FF tacticts and FF9 remake that need to be announced.
So, we have
FF7R part 2 and 3
FFtactics and 9 remake
Not even considering other IPs like KH and DQ. SE sure is working in a lot of things,
Only if Rebirth ends up being as good as promised. If it's a hallway sim with terrible "find the kitty" sidequests then we're getting hype for nothing.
he was never playable, he was on auto-fight the whole time during that part
Anything is possible when the "interactive" story can be changed at any time at all and all the player actions can be nullified with the worst deus ex machina ever made: the ghosts.
The ghosts are gone, their use as a plot device excuse to tell the player that the story is going to be different from the original has came and went. For better or worse, (probably worse since the OG is already pretty great story wise and doesn't need changing) shit's gonna change and stay changed.
Nojima and Kitase have said they want to keep the same overarching story and conclusion of FF7 intact but just wanted make an in universe reason to make some changes to keep fans on their toes
What I sincerely hope these changes do NOT include is letting Aerith live.
Aerith will die. Her death is like the "I am your father" of videogames. They need to adapt it.
My only doubt is if they will do it in the same way, or if she will truly stay dead.
I don't think they'll change Aerith dying. Plot ghosts and "muh destiny" are one thing, but pissing on one of the most known plot points in FF is not something they're retarded enough to do.
My guess is that they're going to give you hope that she might be saved to compound the extra amount of time the remakes have with her to just make it hurt more in the end.
When talking about REbirth Kitase also said how the second part of trilogies are usually some of the favorite titles because they are the darker episodes, where the villains win and the protagonists are at their lowest moment.
So i dont know what will happen in rebirth, but sephiroth will end that game fucking up everyone.
Which would be in line with how the entire mid section of FF7 ends, with Cloud assisting Sephiroth in summoning meteor and becoming a vegetable. Leaving everyone in a state of despair and desperation until Tifa helps him repair his psyche.
The best moment to end would be when tifa sees the meteor. But we know the game will go insane in the last 20%
Have you ever been annoyed by someone agreeing with you?
The Empire Strikes Back
What interview was that? Is there even any examples other than empire strikes back?
It was in the same day they revealed Rebirth, he talked about trilogies. LOTR is also like that, at the end of the second movie frodo and sam are fucked up
So does the game open up at some point or is it really just a series of hallways?
why does anyone want more padding out the ass
sepiroth was so much cooler when you dindn't knew shit about him.
how can square fuck this up so bad?
seriously they're turning him into Cloud's gay lover
kh ac/cc secondaries are of course okay with this
KH and its consequences have been a disaster for the final fantasy 7 franchise
Yeah, with the Nibelheim flashback as a reminder tutorial of sorts.
This is coming four years after the first part.
yeah it's gonna be rushed shit for what should be the biggest "part"
They are having more time with Rebirth than they had with Remake; Remember, they had to restart the development in-house with only 3 years to make the first part.
Considering how they already have things like combat and character models done. It cuts a considerable amount of work.
There is a lot to be done tho. Part 2 and 3 need a ton of assets
It is sad how things like npcs ended up being sacrificed to the deadline gods.
But they made that game fast as fuck.
They're clearly using the assets they're making for it in side stuff like Crisis Core to keep funding development of the game and get some money back on the stuff as they make it instead of just being one long money sink. It's really a pretty smart strategy, doing the asset flips before even releasing the main product, making it seem like they're not.
I hope they spent the time on making the world feel massive after a claustrophobic venture through Midgar.
>I hope they spent the time on making the world feel massive
the absolute delusion on display
A man can have hopes
not with square-enix
The level design being corridors cant even be said it is a problem with SE. Games like GOW had the same problem because of console limitations. They constantly talk how they want to represent how big the world is after you leave midgar.
Well hopefully the spaces feel more expansive and there's more stuff to interact with. I'm not expecting a full on open world where you seamlessly travel from one place to the next with no load screens. I think its more likely we'll have big zones that you fast travel to.
Open world truly isnt the right approach, doing large zones is smarter to create a sense of scale. Dont know how the overworld will work tho
Definitely, that's why they hit the UI, and even nomura hints at it when he said something like "we had to remove certain elements here to not give away a big spoiler"
Controlling sephiroth in the first hours of Rebirth is a great decision.
my idea for an opening would having the game start with like a credits roll, it's raining.. some voices (Sephiroth, Cloud, Shinra soldiers) discussing the Nibelheim mission. Obviously they're traveling in a vehicle. Credit roll stops, the vehicle has stopped. it's that black dragon barring the way, and that'll be your first fight. then maybe cut back to Cloud narrating the story, or just continue on with the flashback.
I also think they will do something in this style. Just that fighting the dragon wont be one of the first things we will do. Remember the trailer, they will have to go all the way to the fucked up place.
The title screen needs to be Cloud and sephiroth inside that vehicle.
So something like what DMC5 did
I want it to be like MGSV's title screen. Just ambient sounds of the truck engine and the rain, the guys sitting quietly
Would be comfy of the highest order
It would need to be something dynamic, that will change when you end the flashback
Yeah i know. Cloud killing aerith would be impactful but would damage the relationship with the party to a irreparable state. And cloud would feel 10x worse even if he is being controlled.
But i will say the theme of him being a psycho is already in full force. He will go berserk in Rebirth 1000%
Cloud and Zack switch places in the truck
>See several people questioning if the Kalm flashback will even be in the game
>Anyone that's played the original and doesn't have the memory of a goldfish should be able to tell the OP pic IS the Kalm flashback
Intergrade epilogue ended with them arriving at Kalm, the game will likely start with the flashback because it's a good introduction to the 2nd act of the story and it being a slower story segment will fit better for tutorials.
>the worst idea humanly conceivable?
So Xehanort is definitely gonna be in FF7R2, right?
why is Jimbo so mentally ill?
hey glad you are back, we missed you (not really)
so whats your opinion on FFXVI previews? i wonder if you are gonna go autistic over them too, cant wait to see how mentally ill you go once the game ends up being good
>ip count didn't go up
Oh boy here we go
FF fans really are unhinged
yeah ive posted before in the thread. How is that any indication of anything?
>so mindbroken you have convinced yourself that I hate FFXVI, based on nothing, and that I will be angry when the game comes out and is good
How did you end up like this?
>so mindbroken that he imagined things!
oh so we finally agree youve been mindbroken for 2 almost 3 years
Seriously dude what are you talking about? You want to know what I think about XVI, but also decide I hate it and will be mad about it being good?
For the record I think it looks good and I hope it lives up to its potential. But I'm sure you'll decide I'm lying and you know my opinions better than me (because you are a schizo) and want to stay mad at things you have imagined
oh good, so we can assume you wont be autistic over it
Sounds to me like you're already planning to be angry about anyone saying it's bad both before and after release. Are you going to spend your whole life doing this? Whats the payoff at the end of the day?
no, dont worry, as long as you behave of course
lets see how much you last
A very sane post. Enjoy your life, anon. Stay vigilant. Someone somewhere might be saying something critical of a ff game you like online. On your deathbed you can remember all the good times you stepped in to save the day
Did you seriously not play the original?
In the OG, Sephiroth is "playable" in the sense that he's just an automated delete button sitting in your party.
I think the question OP is getting at is if he'll be directly controllable in Rebirth.
As this anon said here
Devs already said they are hiding elements of UI in that image. So he will be playable.
I honestly think he'll be like Red xii at worst and Sonon at best.
Either way is ok with me. But Ganker will complain no matter what
So, the guy who tries to bait people being passive agressive is here. Just ignore him, bros
Everyone always ignores him other than the one guy he's making fun of
I'm sorry, I can't.
I have posted about him at least 1000 times and you're asking me to ignore him now? We can't just let him away with it
The gameplay is good enough to warrant enjoyment, if the story is aleast a C it's fine.
Fully agree. But people mocking the story still bothers me a lot
Game is gonna be arse, due to how they handle the Remake as a whole.
moron the story in the Remake is some of the worst possible even by jrpg standards.
Mockery is the only even remotely positive response anyone with any standards could possibly have to the story in FF7R.
The shilling for final fantasy is fucking pathetic.
The shilling for *insert your IP* is fucking pathetic.
>30 poster 120 replys
Im sure there is a lot of RE doomposting threads or E-celeb threads you can have fun in participating, but you still chose us, im glad.
Is this the Ganker version of only buying AAAs?
You only engage in threads with more than 50 people?
There is also the fact 1/3 of the posts is one guy larping as a FF7R lover. like this
But this one is a honorary guy that got mindbroken.
how is he wrong? Oh yeah you can't say you like anything on here I forgot that
Yeah i know. This one is like barry. He does this in every FF7 thread. Would be funny if he actually is a mmofag.
In case you haven't noticed, not that many people here give a fuck about rebirth. Don't expect big numbers in these threads
shut up Hispanic
I mean the game is bad Final Fantasy 7 fanfiction so I would imagine it'd try to jerk off Sephiroth even harder by making him a playable character
Would be peak tho.
This is the only remake Ive seen so far thats completely ruined itself. If they just would of modernized the graphics and animations of the original, add some quality of life features, and not fucked with the formula it could have worked. Ill never touch this steamy pill of shit as long as I live.
Dont worry, i will play for you, brother.
You and all your ilk Im sure will. There is no hope for your kind.
Thanks, im hyped ngl
Just dont forget to pay full price and pre order. Oh and be sure its the digital deluxe version or you will miss out on alot of content. Remember to like and subscribe too for all the latest news and updates. Thanks buddy.
I already pre-ordered so it's fine.
Good. Now I know you've spent most of your allowance on doordash and streamer thots, but gonna need you to pay for the season pass too. We don't want you missing out on DLC that hasnt been announced yet. Gonna need you to tune in to our twitch channels too, so you can watch someone else play the game. Thanks buddy.
>Good. Now I know you've spent most of your allowance on doordash and streamer thots, but gonna need you to pay for the season pass too.
Anon this is serious. Without your support on Patreon we couldnt do this. Gonna need that up front too. And if you could just shill our product for us, because you're loyal to the brand, we would greatly appreciate it. We couldn't have 16 installments without people like you buying whatever we put out before its out. Thanks buddy. We hope you enjoy the zoomer coins we've added to the in game store for your useless cosmetics.
Bro i dont know how things end up this way, i just need to say "i will buy the game"
Some people have random trigger buttons, you just pressed one. Even worse when it is related to the EVA of vidya.
>more heckin' fan-fiction
I CANT WAIT TO CONSOOM
So who is the final boss of Rebirth, it can't be Sephiroth again right? I don't think its easy to sell a Jenova monster fight after Sephiroth in part 1.
A wild turn would be Zack or broken Cloud being the final boss.
I would bet on schizo cloud. He is 10x worse than he should be at this point, tried to kill 3 random people
There's no way to know yet, but it will be kino
you didnt last long huh
could be jenova death + schizo cloud
I think XVI looks great, and I am looking forward to Rebirth.
i have decided you hate those games and you will be angry when they are good
Maybe that's why you're being made fun of and being called a schizo
have a nice day jimbo you passive agressive cunt
You are a schizo retard
This post making me angry says more about me than it does about you
It'll be Sin, because they're gonna link the FF7/10 universes properly. It's the only thing that can top the retardation of the previous game. I guess for the 3rd one they go to Kingdom Hearts, or hell an XIV crossover why the fuck not, nobody cares about quality anyway, just about more, more, more!
Jenova is a super important thing that gets sidelined really bad in OG FF7. So i want to see her more present in the new games. There is a lot of potential in her THE THING nature.
A manifestation of Vincent getting NTR'd.
It will be cloud. I wonder if he will be the one to kill aerith this time.
The only way to make aerith's death more impactful is by doing that. But idk, too heavy and would fuck up the party's relationship.
No way, you could never recover a character from that. There are lines a protagonist cannot cross in fiction
Fight stuff in weird order, cloud DIES saving aerith, zack is now cloud for part three.
Twist in part 3, aerith needs to die because Holy. Some things different, but the period at the end is still the same.
Seph is NOT final boss, but is an npc for final final battle.
They wouldnt cut Cloud like this because he is the simbol of FF, he is FF7
And nojima also said how his favorite moment is the lifestream scene between tifa and cloud.
Cloud fails to resist Sephiroth's will and kills Aerith while she's praying. The game ends with you defeating and subduing schizo Cloud.
wtf bros... what if they made ff7... coop with cloud and sephiroth...
I'm looking forward for XVI more at this point. They could've easily made the jrpg to end all jrpgs yet the dumbfucks still managed to fuck it up beyond comprehension. The episodic bullshit was the redflag for me but the insistence on muh subverting expectations was the nail on the coffin for me. I truly hope and pray that Nomura, Nojima and Kitase would get brutally raped by morons on the daily
So we're gonna team up with current timeline Sephiroth to beat future Sephiroth, right?
No, there is only one that knows more. Simple.

Street Fighter 6
Ratchet & Clank
Final Fantasy XVI
Final Fantasy Rebirth
Like a Dragon: Gaiden
That's why I'll be buying one around E3, as I bet a demo for FFXVI will drop after E3. Don't own one now though, still no point.
That is the weakest lineup of games for any console in the history of consoles. By the time all of those are out it'll have been 3 years, and that's it? Christ, that's fucking tragic.
final fantasy x remake when?
X-3 has higher chances.
It doesn't need a remake.
None of the game need one.
Fuck off with this remake trend.
but lulu's tits in a high poly 4k model
no it wasn't
shit was empty as fuck
nothing but gas stations and one tiny town and a few small shitty dungeons
the other city had to be fucking loaded in separately lmao
15's open world problems were more about design because it had some cool things to do. Like hunts, camping, fishing, running around with chocobos... The problem is more about art design of those environments
hunts god old fast as did the camping/driving
fishing was the only fun thing in the game imo
One of the reasons people like 15( actually a lot) is because that zone gave you a lot of time to interact with your party doing tons of random things, from cooking to hunting. The party carried the game even if the story had serious problems.
I found the party to be dull. They're all cookie cutter tropes. Anyone who thinks the party were good needs to play more JRPGs.
I could write full texts about 15's problems, but i believe the decision to let you interact a lot with those 3 party members is great. The only one i think that is bad is gladiolus.
This. I don't understand the praise for 15's party when they're as predictable and trope-y as they come. None of them do or say anything memorable or interesting.
Fuck, you can post just a picture of Wakka and 50 people will start replying with quotes. Who can remember a single fucking thing anyone said in 15?
Wrong, FF2 needs a remake by Kawazu to backport the SaGa autism he has developed over 30 years
I know you couldn't control him in the original but hey changed so much shit anyway. So it would be cool if they extended the Nibelheim mountain scene more and let you actually control him with all his OP shit. Then make some combat simulator missions for him or something so his playability isn't wasted on just the flashback.
I sort of think it's better to keep Sephiroth "otherised", by keeping him not playable. Keeps the original's feeling of him being this mythical, incredibly powerful figure. Then again they fucked everything else up so why not.
They already ruined that by having you fight him right after the giant Very-Not-FFVII boss that you fight shortly after Rufus.
Maybe he's an AI partner, like in the OG
For what? All the 10 minutes of playtime during the flahsback sequence? But given this is a re-remake it will be like 3 hours long though lol.
it's called a game shark OP, Hello~
We know you will pajeet. We know you will.
why did they make him so edgy in kingdom hearts
Couldn't choose between Cloud and Vincent so they chose both
vincent would have actually been pretty cool
Remake Dirge of Cerberus you cowards.
The FF characters in KH arent really like their respective games. So they just made cloud go edgekino.
Ganker doesn't have an answer for this:
Why does weeb cringe increase with QOL improvements?
>le voice acting
>all characters now look like goofy caricatures of the original
>second-hand embarrassment every time they open their mouths
Is it because dated technology used to tame anime stuff?
You have mild autism and don't realize it
No. Every time I see Tifa and Aerith (and Jessie) interact it reminds me of those shitty sol anime. It doesn't look wholesome, it just oozes cringe.
>Is it because dated technology used to tame anime stuff
pretty much yeah
Didnt know Adam Sessler used Ganker.
>Didnt know Adam Sessler used Ganker.
The Japanese can't write good dialogue for English-speakers. The way they express themselves, on a fundamental level, sounds cringe to normal westerners. The whole 'power of friendship' thing is a meme to us, but the Japs genuinely eat that shit up as if it's the most inspiring stuff ever.
They also love putting awkward pauses, reaction shots, grunts and screaming in the mix. Plus, they are terrified of any mature form of romance.
It's all easier to stomach in text form. That's part of why listening to an English dub anime is even more cringe compared to the subtitles.
>The Japanese can't write good dialogue for English-speakers.
The thing is, have you see the average western AAA dialogue nowadays? Not only it is worse,but also behind 10 layers of irony so you cant criticize because "it is a joke"
Yeah, millennial writing is shit. Japanese writing has always been shit though.
I disagree completely. But i agree that grunts cant be adapted to english, so them trying to do this in remake sounds weird as fuck.
In japanese people are constantly "humming" to assert dialogue, doesnt work in english.
>but also behind 10 layers of irony so you cant criticize because "it is a joke"
I like Remake dialogue because some of those characters have no idea of how interact around each other, Tifa and Cloud are always unconfortable around each other so their dialogue sounds natural and weird. It isnt a script being read.
But im sure that if Sephiroth appeard in a western videogame one of the characters would need to make a joke about how much shampoo he uses to wash his hair, regardless of him having a 10 foot katana.
Remaster the XIII trilogy you cowards
The only game out of the three they should remaster is XIII.
XIII-2 became a fucking pokemon game with monotonous backtracking and the story is shit.
LR shouldn't even exist it sucks so bad.
Takes about the 13 trilogy are always interesting. Always so different.
it's called 7R trilogy
You want to know the most disappointing thing about the remake is? Learning that this was all just an excuse to make another shitty sequel to FF7.
And where is the disappointing part?
That it didn't need a sequel since every single thing they made after FFVII sucked ass.
Yeah i was mostly joking. I have tons of problems with the compilation, but i like remake. So...
We were robbed of Versus 13
I want a new sequence where we see Sephiroth going from believing Jenova was an ancient and he's therefore the person with the only true claim to the planet to understanding Jenova is a hostile Lovecraftian alien that destroyed the Cetra
The whole relationship of Sephiroth and Jenova is foggy. We barely know what he thinks about it outside going insane and megalomaniac
I think his breakdown in Nibelheim starts out pretty sympathetic, he's basically saying "I was created as a profane tool for Shinra from a holy being, Shinra are humans, I'm going to punish humanity" That's above average motivation for a Squaresoft villain
But there's nothing in the game showing him dealing with what Jenova really is and you can easily just see everything that happens after that as just Jenova with a Sephiroth-shaped puppet.
Sephiroth really isnt a character in the OG, he is a narrative tool. But he always had the potential to be really complex. It is not like FF7 is wrong in using him that way, it was just one of the option available.
Sephiroth is probably the first "Homelander" archetype, in the way he was raised by a megacorp without love and with the objective to be a weapon and propaganda to average people. But while Homelander isnt really trained for combat, Sephiroth was fighting in the war since he was 10
