    Born in 88' this was my first introduction to the series, never played ff7 but looking forward to the remake, a remake of ff8 on the other hand would be MONUMENTAL!

    says: "A remaster for this generation" looks like: outdated graphics late 90s or early 2000s AWFUL.

    Haaa, what an Irony. Thanks to the first original Playstation. Nintendo Switch got some real great games for the first time ever in it's short life. What a pain.

    This games soundtrack is ingrained into my soul, extremely excited for this. Glad it specifically says steam, only playing old titles at this point due 2 micro transactions and Epic deals. This will be the first new release I will buy in years.

    Goddammit....I bought your "remastered" version of ff8 on steam like 2 years ago.... And now its "remastered" again??!? If you have already bought ff8 on steam.....just download the roses and wine mod and do what this "remaster" basically does.....for free. I fucking love you Square....but I also cant spend money on a title I have bought over 5 times in the past 20 years everytime you throw something new into it.

  26. Blahblah Blacksheep

    Pre-rendered scenes is all we get after 20 years!? Come on! Stop treating us like whores.

  27. Scott C

    Remastered? It's still in fullscreen 4:3 format and not widescreen 16:9 format and looks the same as it did before just a little less pixelated. They need to completely remake the graphics same as Final Fantasy 7.

  28. Brolapse

    I agree, this "remaster" looks like ass. Was hoping for something on the level of FFX HD but nope...

    I grew up with this game instead so I never understood what all the FF7 hype was about. I've been meaning to play this again for quite some time now so this is pretty cool.

    If the ffVII remake does good and this remaster does good than there is maybe a chance we will get a ffVIII remake like ffVII.

    Everything about this game is great except the junction system. It takes forever to draw magic to get a 100 points and you can’t use magic because it’ll decrease.

  40. Bynk333

    Bynk3332 months ago

    100 point its easy, when all tree characters draw for 9 magic, you have 100 in 11 draw, but draw for all 600 points, its hard. :-)

    What the fuck ff7 gets a whole new look and we just get a slight engine update!??!?!!?!? What the fuck???? ff7 sucked major dick compared to 8. and they get a whole new face lift. FUCKING REMAKE THE GOD DAMN GRAPHICS AND VISUALS. WHICH you should of done for this version instead of 7. 7 already had a fuckin movie and got what we wanted. BUT HOLY TITS some nice ass animation would of made 8 the best final fantasy of all time.

  42. Sephiroth Crescent

    Sephiroth CrescentMonth ago

    @ReaverDropper I mean just because 1 game beats ff7 (ff8) doesn't mean ff7 is bad does it?

  43. ReaverDropper

    1 day man 1 day

  44. Sephiroth Crescent

    Sephiroth CrescentMonth ago

    @ReaverDropper look you will get your ff8 remake/true remaster one day. Okay? Can we just appreciate the masterpiece of ff7? Both ff8 and ff7 are masterpieces

  45. ReaverDropper

    ReaverDropperMonth ago

    @Sephiroth Crescent remake and remastered two different things. Remake for ff7 is basically going under plastic surgery for a whole face lift. While ff8 is basically getting a remastered of an already HD remake. Which makes it look like ffx graphics for the ps2. Maybe some of us would like ps3 quality? Nothing to big to ask of, they have the team for it. They can spend 2 years or so upgrading environments and character sprites. The coding is already there.

  46. Sephiroth Crescent

    Sephiroth CrescentMonth ago

    @ReaverDropper maybe the reason it's getting a remake is because people wanted one ever since 2005? Have you ever thought of that?

  47. sanni andres

    I think Im not understanding this at all, what is the different between a remake and remastered?

  48. sanni andres

    sanni andres2 months ago

    So it's doesn't making any sense to remastering ff8 :(, it will be better a remake then a remaster :(

    remaste is improved game, remake is a brand new game. what FFVIIR ist.

  65. Aaron Hampton

    Aaron Hampton2 months ago

    Could you add a "hard mode" for the FFVIII Remaster? Just like steam mods? Maybe make enemies/bosses tougher and always 1-5 levels higher than you, characters/GF's a bit less powerful, and the junction system less game breaking? Also add the Japanese version differences too. :)

  66. Aaron Hampton

    Aaron Hampton2 months ago

    @Bynk333 Why would i want to draw less? It takes another part of the system out of the game if i do that. I don't want to deal with less mechanics, nor make Squall more OP than the rest which creates character unbalance. It's not as fun that way lol.

  67. Bynk333

    Bynk3332 months ago

    Why would that, if you will make hard game, level more from early but always draw only a few magic, so you should play interesantly hard game. :-)
