      Why?

        Not him but it's lacking both the analog controls and rumble feedback the original release had, because it's actually a port of the PC release from 2000, which lacked those. Also the graphics were updated poorly as others have said and on the censorship front both Shiva and Siren had their models tweaked to remove previously-visible pubes.

      Get the Remaster because if you hate the game, you can abuse the x3 speed and No Encounters cheats

        I have never understood why impatient people play JRPGs. Every one of these people whine about muh random encounters. I mean why are you playing a 40-hour(or more) game?
        To me the whole fun of a JRPG is fighting enemies and managing items, MP, HP, etc, finding a great balance and getting to the end of an area barely holding on before kicking the boss's ass with a few healing items left and mage characters almost out of MP. It's tense and a struggle for survival. Then you get little nasty surprises that force you to suddenly adapt, like if you had overleveled your party in FF8 and you fight the Ruby Dragon with Laguna and co. without knowing about the dragon's SURPRISE!!! high-level party piece troll of a dick move.

            That my feeling as well. It's why I don't shit on DQ1, despite it's very basic gameplay. The essence of a JRPG to me is roaming around the game world and having surprise battles engage, fighting them and leveling up and learning new abilities, sometimes summoning creatures to BTFO enemies, and at the core, going from a literal nobody weakling as the game begins to doing fantastic shonen anime style super attacks at the end of the game. Growing into a superhuman badass.

        >No Encounters cheats

        why would you need a no-encounters cheat? You can get the no encounter ability legitimately before the end of disk 1 if you really want

          Better question: why are you playing JRPGs if you don't like doing battles and having encounters?
          The No Enc ability is useful for those who want to keep their levels low as enemies scale with level in 8, but otherwise you go straight for Mug with Diablos.

            Just because the battles are the meat in the RPG sandwich doesn't mean they can't get monotonous or redundant at times. I don't want to eliminate them entirely but it sure as fuck was nice to be able to toggle them on and off at times to explore freely.

            They let you turn off random encounters in VI and X, too. If they're giving you the option it's because they acknowledge it might be useful

        Free no encounters is whatever, but x3 speed is a goddam godsend. The lengthy walking segments, the long unskippable animations, drawing magic all become infinitely more bearable with the fast forward.

    it emulates fine but i'd go with remaster since you can put your switch or ps4 to sleep and thus save anywhere.

    Do not get the remaster. The backgrounds got blown up without upscaling so they're distractingly blurry.

    Unfortunately there's no mod to fix it that I'm aware of.

      The guy that did all the upscales for FF8PC is doing a version for the Remaster, but it's patreon paywalled.

    Remaster have ruined models and in some cases, censored. Not to mention the vaseline smeared backgrounds.

    Emulate it on Duckstation. Looks and plays great on PC, especially on a monitor that makes colors really pop out(battle effects and summons look great on rich color displays).
    You can keep your DStation window small if the upscaled textures/BGs bother you.

    doesn't the remaster have only 15 fps, and sinks to 10 when in combat?

    I honestly don't see why you would do anything but emulate besides some combination of moralgayry and poorgayry. Unless you're going to do additional modding, it takes more effort to mod the PC versions to parity. (and the PC>console ports are just stuck being dick)

    isn't the remaster just a port of the game?

      It's the PC port with somewhat iffy new models for the main characters. Squall in particular looks like one of his spinoff versions and not his FFVIII design.

    I've kept my levels low for the most part but now I'm level 30 on disc 3 and everything is kicking my ass. Do I need to just Degenerator my way to level 100 or do I need to just find a way to farm high level junction magic?

    • 3 weeks ago

      Keeping your levels low will fuck you over unless you grind out cards autistically for top level junctions. That's what nobody mentions when they tell you that.

      You need to start mugging monsters for level appropriate drops to refine into junction spells to get to par.
