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. 

Dude,yes i know what you meant by your original comment and i was not fighting it but it is just interesting information to know that in the OG game it could have been already considered canon.

Also do something about the spoilers in this thread,it is not spoilerfree.

There is no indication that Shinra had any involvement in blowing up Reactor 1 in the original. I'm positive its just them not want the lovable cast of FF7 to be responsible for innocent deaths anymore(Japan always does this).



Major Tip:

When going for the biker boy trophy if u get lower than 75% just restart at last battle and it will put right at the beginning of with a cool new character. Just keep trying to you get it!.



Chapter 4 is the biggest detour so far in a very pleasant way. Jessie reeeaaallllyyyy want the D so bad.



Is it better to play the game on easy, as i am hearing bosses or enemies are like bullet sponges. Also is it worth doing the side quests as i hear they aren't good.

No and yes. 

The battle system is heavily centered around Staggering the enemy  (not the degree of FF13 though); once staggered maximum damage is done a health falls fast. Side quest are par with FFXV, not terribly excting but terribly terrible either. Some weapons/armor/Materia/ and reputation are gained through sidequest. Dont skip them. 



Currently on Chapter on 6 I think? Just got moogle summon. I am really enjoying the extended trip to Reactor 5. boss fights are overly chaotic in sometimes a not good way.

Boss fight sometimes overstay their welcome for sure. Especially when they render two of characters useless for a while because they decide to go out of melee range.



Signature goes here!

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!?". 

Does she really say it?

She might as well. That goes double for Jessie. 

Ice Magic sucks. The damage only occurs during the shatter part of the animation so If you manage not to trap the enemy in the initial animation they can just waltz outta there. Makes dealing with seahorse enemies a pain, but on the flip side elemental lighting on Barret is a wash.
