* No Spoilers. Not even spoilers tags! - When unskilled people respond to these tags you can still get the gist of what the tag could be about.

* SPOILERS = NEW PLOT ELEMENTS!

We have a hype thread that has not discussion on the game past the hype part (which I guess I cant blame it for) and a review thread that has tooo much spoiler shit. Lets have a clean discussion thread.

I am simple going to chronicle all my goods bads and neutrals,mainly in regards to plot.

+ Good

  • Barret. I love em. The whole pastor shit is charming. Gives him more character passed angry black man. VERY animated he is.  I'm surprised Cloud didnt straight up punch Barret for the amount of times he pushed him.

[] Neutral 

  • I knew they were going to do this: A very early appearance of Sephiroth. They want to establish early that Sephiroth is pulling clouds strings. In the original it is only inferred that clouds choices were directly influenced by Sephiroth but now; "I don't care about Planet!" *Sephiroth tells Cloud to care about the planet in a taunting cutscene* "I care about the Planet!". Were going to see this a lot in this Remake. I'm positive. Was anybody else reminded of Bat Man and Joker, specifically from Arkham City/Knight in the alleyway scene? I like the idea of the Cloud and Sephiroth channeling Bat Man and Joker thing but hopefully done better than Dissidia because Cloud was a Bitch in that.

- Bad

  • The first "why!?" is Shinra blowing up the Mako Reactor. It was a little humorous to see the bomb go off and only the handle be damaged on reactor though. I knooow where they're going with this plot wise, but Avalanche, and by extension Barret will kinda be diminished by it. Avalanche is a eco terrorist group. No sugar coating it. It's inferred in the original that a lot of innocent people were killed in the groups operations and part of Barrets post FF7 crisis is atoning for all the lives lost. They went out of their way to keep Avalanches hands clean I think. Unnecessary.

Jessie her optional dialogue about the bombing in OG:"Think it was all because of my bomb? But all I really did was make it like the computer told me."

And later in the OG game shinra reveals that they have been playing into it all so it can be assumed that they were behind the bigger than expected explosion.

I don't think you understood my point. Read it again.

I'll make it more clear. I'm talking about the 3rd act KH bullshit that is all over FF7R topics everywhere.



I'm calling it now:

Final Fantasy 7 Remake is NOT a remake, but a sequel to the original Final Fantasy and something from there is altering reality; That something is Genesis Rhapsodos..ya know the lose end from the Compilation of Final Fantasy 7. I think he is responsible for Clouds new ability.

Why?

You said that avalanche did only damage the handle and that is the first of your errors,because they did disable the WHOLE reactor but Shinra made it go all spectacular boom.

That is not point. That is why. The point I wanted to make was the lives that were lost from explosion was effectively takin off the hands of Avalanche in favor of having Shinra do it because they're bad. In the original that was not the case, Avalanche blew it up and the implication was innocent lives were lost but is seen as collateral for a greater good. Remake is trying to goodie Avalanche up when the original was very grim about it.

Really wanted to wait till the price dropped on this one, but quarantine boredom got the best of me. Also, I temporarily am playing on a 60 inch TV as opposed to the 720p 32 inch I normally use, and I felt like this would be a better experience with a better screen.

Or you just wanted to play the game like the rest of us. You even busted the better TV out for it.

Ummmmm… yeah, of course I wanted to play the game.  Why else would I have bought it?  I just think I'd have waited under normal circumstances.

Right ( og response was better :} )

Anyways. Finished All the sidequest and manged to get Fira and Cura. That dog fight was something else ... mostly because I keep forgetting about the guard button. Doing all the side quest gets you the secret scene Tifa and speaking of Tifa, they are trying a little to hard her, "Dont you want to fuck me!?". 



Game asked me right off the bat if I wanted to invert my camera controls. 10/10
