Final Fantasy VIII Remaster

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Final Fantasy VIII Remaster

I'm so happy my favourite game ever is being remastered, I'm ready to buy a copy on every system I own. I know I will be let down by the quality of the remaster like I have been with VII and IX but I don't care. I have been keeping my expectations low so I won't be disappointed (like Squall would say!) and now I can finally stop wondering when they'll actually get around to it. As soon as I saw the little tease in the music ad I knew it was coming.

The trailer

Cue the victory fanfare

Of course it is announced in the shadow of FFVIIR but, for me, this was the highlight of a very good presentation.

It looks good. Textures look a lot more smoother. I think it is time to revisit this game for like the 5th time (I honestly don't remember how many times I've played this game, but they were a handful).



Nintendo is selling their IPs to Microsoft and this is true because:

I thought it's REMAKE lmao 

But who knows probably a remake is already being planned 



There was not a single overworld shot in the trailer.
The char models in the world are by far the ones needing an upgrade the most.
Nice news, tho.
Everybody getting their favs bought back.
Except me, of course.



Can't wait! My 2nd favourite game of all time, only behind FFX!



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

Love this!!! Buying this now!!

Would be cool now if Square can put the remasters of FF7-9 on one disc collection.



Hopefully the music doesn't reset in this remaster.

I was hoping for a look at the pre-rendered sections. I've been disappointed with the upscaling on VII and IX, fans have done better. I expect this to have the same flaws as those two remasters but I'm still happy.

LoD is a good game, unfortunately Sony doesn't seem very keen on revisiting their PS1 days (outside of lacklustre mini consoles), but I guess if Medievil can get a remake then there is a sliver of hope.

Yeah, that would be good for a physical collection. Then do another for 1-6. That'd just leave me waiting on FF11 getting a port to modern consoles.
