Forums - Gaming Discussion - RUMOR: FFVIIremake details leaked

So kinda like FFXII but without gambits and with more Materia and I can fight the huge Weapon that attacks the cannon?
Was it not sliced in 3 it would have been dope.

Okay, the fortunate reality though is that back in 1997 Squaresoft could have sent you Disc 1 and then in a year disc 2 and so on. This game is still essentially separated like the only version. They can't fit it all on one disc. So instead of making you wait into 2025 when it's all complete, they're giving you the first part (let's cross our fingers for 2019).

They're not giving you anything, they're making you pay full price for each individual part. The original FF7 wasn't 3 times the price of a standard game because it had 3 discs... so why is this?

Okay, good point. You good got me there. I personally would hope that they don't charge $59.99 for part 2 and 3. Maybe part 2 and 3 will work similarly to Square-Enix's Life is Strange. You know I'm curious how they do it in the end. However they do it, I just hope they're fair to customers.

Because this is 3 games.  FF7 was only 1 game.  Seems simple.

Yeah... that's the issue people have. That they're releasing it as 3 games and charging people for it 3 times, it is simple so I don't know why somebody would try and compare it to the original FF7 being on 3 discs which you only had to buy once...

Yeah, I don't know what everyone's problem is.  They's already said that this will be 3 full sized games.  Just because the story previously spanned 1 game doesn't mean we're paying 3 times the price for a game of the original's length.

The people that wait for the inevitable complete edition won't be, no. Everybody else however...



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

And neither will everyone else.  You're missing my point.  You're paying 180 dollars for 3 full games.  That's what I'm getting at.  This isn't 180 for a game the same length as the original FF7.

I think the truth is somewhere between both points of views. They're probably going to add content to each episode to increase the length of play from what they used to be on PS1 but I'd say that calling every episode a full game is stretching it.

What you got in PS1 was a complete game with a complete story arc and it had sizable end-game content. The game provided 50-90 hours of gameplay depending on how many sidequests and leveling up you did. We're obviously not going to get that kind of experience from every episode so I don't buy into the 3 full games narrative.



Signature goes here!

We won't know the truth till all three games come out, but I can only go by what Square-Enix is saying.  And what they're saying is that this is 3 full length games.  If they don't make good on that claim, then fine.  But as it stands right now, we have no reason to believe otherwise.

On the downside, dividing a single game into three independent chapters can kill immersion and leave each chapter feeling incomplete and unsatisfying. The story isn't rich enough.

They have to cater for the fact some people for some reason, might not buy game 1 or even only buy 1 and 3 or some crap, which means that can't have a leveling system that makes sense. If you only buy 2, you have no progress from the first game.

... also are they going to import progress? So if I've spent time and effort leveling up my materia, will I have that at the same state as the first game ended?

 

Being in 3 parts is currently the biggest reason why I will probably not be buying this game, and that hurts me knowing FF7 of my favourite games of all time. Dividing it up just seems to be being done to get money from the project when they know it'll sell loads regardless.

I don't like it either. They'll probably implement a low level cap in the first chapter (game) and give you the option to carry over your data to the following chapter. Hopefully they can find a way to make sense out of it. Wouldn't mind buying it thrice if the quality is there!
