I just want a Mark of Kri/Rise of the Kasai dual HD remaster with a sequel on the horizon.

FUA USU RUTU


#21755

Yea Mark of Kri was fuckin cool. Picked both of those up for my PS2 last year. Was impossible to play on my HDTV tho, was impossible to see anything. Gotta dig out the CRT.


#21756

I’d have never played TLoU if not for the remaster.


#21757

Mass Effect Andromeda reviews are tumbling out, currently sitting at a 75 on both Metacritic and Opencritic out of 27 and 41 (+ 5 unscored) reviews respectively.
Around what I was expecting it to be given to be honest.


#21758

I would love to see Yakuza 2-5 get remasters similar to Yakuza 0 for PS4.


#21759

Do people here think the “remaster” of FF7 is going to radically change the story?

#21760

Well since there were cheats to bring her back in your party, the fact that everyone was mad about it, and also the evidence that she had assets later in the game that were unused such as dialogue, I’d imagine so.


#21761

Aerith deserves to die.


#21762

Hell no.
I can see them adjusting stuff to fit in better with later FF7 titles (i.e. changing the Zack scenes to more closely fit Crisis Core), but Aerith’s death is a key point in the narrative and one of the most well remembered parts of the series.
It would be like if they remade FF6 but the world didn’t end halfway through the game.


#21763

This kind of exists already…

No, because that’s a major change in the story. If you change that scene, then you have to basically re-write everything else.


#21765

I want to see paid DLC to avoid Aerths death then just kill her right before the end anyhow.


#21766

Yeah, that’s my point. A lot of the story could easily be re-written.

I’m guessing there will be some sort of choice you can make to alter the storyline at some critical moments.

Frankly, if we wait 20 years for FF7, people will want more than… well okay Squaresoft already made it HD and completely changed combat, but people will still want some choices in the story (besides dating).

We’ll see. I don’t have a PS4 so it probably won’t matter to me.


#21767

So the Switch is just a re-branded Nvidia Shield Tv with revamped software?

WTF nintendo. Just buying the rights to rebrand/release existing hardware with your name on it? Pretty halfassed move…

One of the many reasons why I don’t see anything wrong with them. This was the case for me with Darksiders 2 and Borderlands TPS (which I enjoyed a lot more than I thought I would).


#21769

That doesn’t bother me too much really. I still think the switch is neat, but what has killed the hype for me is all the issues people are having. I think what irks me the most is how cheap the POS dock is.


#21770

Changing the story is the worst decision they could make. You don’t buy a remake of a classic title expecting “something different.” You buy it to relive the experience. This isn’t one of those games where you get to decide how the story pans out and I’d like to keep it that way…

…because if it was up to me, Zack would be the main character.


#21771

FF7 doesn’t need to change a ton of story stuff, but I think they could provide a couple of alternative scenarios. The one the sticks out to me is saving/redeeming Dyne and maybe getting him as a new party member. I know people who don’t like Barrett really don’t care about that story, but it could have more impact, as Dyne was one of the many characters that I’ve never even seen artwork for, so I don’t know exactly what he’s supposed to look like.

I’m really not sure how I feel about no random encounters being confirmed, main problem being that means probably no overworld. WTF is FF7 without an overworld with random enemy encounters?? Are they just gonna spawn out of sight?

Meh, doesn’t really matter I guess, shit won’t be out for another 5 years.


#21772

Since the game’s going the action route, and seeing what they did with FF 12 to 15, more than likely you’ll just see monsters and enemies going about their business, and have the option of moving/driving around those bums when you don’t care to fight.


#21773

FF7 remake isn’t turn-based, that’s the best improvement it could get.
