    I hope they put the chocobo mini game in, because the pc version has it.
    But many knows that FF8 lost the "master version", so Square Enix must search for another solution [begin from scratch?] and that's impressed. Let us look what they make [better] ;)

    PC version better not have goddam midi music!

    joking aside, I don't like it. Can already do high poly model swaps on the PC version and have been able to replace the midi music with the ps1 audio for well over a decade already. Plus I don't even like the ugly jittery xSal upscaling look anyways 🙅
    But. Don't forget: any money is worth an eventual full-3d remake.

    I would see it bettee then what it was made. I can't see many difference.... It looks too old....

  • Awakening Newtype

    I hope they tweaked the Junction System 'cause that was broken asf.

    • Mad Momo
      Mad Momo Day ago

      I doubt they touched it, i heard they added options to triple speed cutscenes/disable random encounters etc. I dont see them nerfing anything.

  • Birdy Boyz Cookie

    This is how they "remaster" 8, when 7 has a complete revamp. 😒

    • Mad Momo
      Mad Momo Day ago

      ​@Birdy Boyz Cookie god dam! 7 playthroughs? XD you're a legend.
      but yea i hope they even remake all older FFs. (6 and 8 especially in mind for me lol) seriously, you cant make a game better than this at this moment, you have great stories/music/ game play and most importantly Nostalgia, imagine playing a better version of a game you adored as a child, with your own kid!

    • Birdy Boyz Cookie
      Birdy Boyz Cookie Day ago

      @Mad Momo well my 5 PS, and two PC copies are difficult to play at this point. ☺️ I hope this becomes available for PSN soon? 😕 Hopefully they'll expand and revamp the story when they're done with 7. 😁

    • Mad Momo

    This is like 10 times more exciting than the ff7 remake!! My 2nd favorite ff. 6 is always #1

  • Renegade Fire
    Renegade Fire Day ago

    If Square Enix are smart they will include the Final Fantasy VII Remake Demo with this game and sit back as the money rolls in. I'd buy that, especially if it had a physical release.

  • Gio 87

  • Trae Wright
    Trae Wright Day ago

    It's not remastered.. same graphics as the ps... only the opening graphics look a bit changed.. but even back then the graphics on cut scenes were that good lol.. but heyyyyy it's still my favorite game..! Just not remastered.. graphic wise..

    • Mad Momo
      Mad Momo Day ago

      @Trae Wright yea i agree, it would've been better if they remade 8 instead of 13-2 or 13-3 for example since its a fan favorite. and a fancy graphic upgrade would freshen it up.
      to me though i think 8's graphics were good as is, i mean it wont be gaining as much from a remake like 7 would. in other words, would you prefer a ff7 remake and a ff8 remaster? or a ff8 remake and a ff7 remaster? since i like both the same, imo they did the better option. (however if they would remake 8 or 6 after that would also be great lol)

    • Trae Wright
      Trae Wright Day ago

      You are right.. but still.. 20 yrs later I expect some changes with graphics.. I love ff8 soo ohh well.. just would be grand with the graphics.. you see they are going out their way to make ff7 totally upgraded..

    • Mad Momo
      Mad Momo Day ago +1

      Just remember, if it looks the same in your 55"+ screen as it did 20 years ago. And not stretched and pixilated Thats a win by itself lol

    ⚡WARNING⚡FFVII fanboy jacking this thread!
    Can we just get a FFVII remaster? Remake looks cool for the current gen of gamers and I'll probably play it. But I played the OG on launch day and it's still my all time favorite. Remaster would make all camps happy 🙏

  • Tim P
    Tim P Day ago

    I still think FF8 should be made into a movie. Not a CGI one but a real movie with real actors. If done right it could be the greatest movie of all time. I would take that over a remaster.

    I remember the hardest part of the game for me was taking over the ragnarok. In order to completely rid the ship of aliens, you had to kill the aliens in colored pairs or they'll keep respawning. Problem is, I'm colorblind 😅😥😭

    I really loved what I played of ff8. Only made it to disc 2 before getting stuck by a small scratch on the disc. Will be nice to actually play through without worrying about such things. The card game was so fun for me, more so than the ff7 mini games

    I’d definitely be OK with a remake if square-enix did one. Maybe give us a better battle system that doesn’t make you draw magic for half the entire game.

  • Claudio Marco Valerio Marino

    Final fantasy 8 merita un remake fatto come si deve, dovrebbe tornare la vecchia SQUARESOFT innanzitutto, la Square Enix ha fatto solo danni, e dal remastered si vede già uno squall che ha Una faccia che non è la sua, mi fa piacere che esca il remastered, ma da fan sfegatato ho il dubbio che lo rovineranno. E ff8 essendo a mio avviso il miglior ff non lo meriterebbe.

    So, nothing you couldn't have already done with an emulator for many, many years.
    Laziest 'remaster' ever. But SE has always been an incredibly lazy company trying to milk their old Squaresoft fans for all their worth, so I guess nobody should be surprised, even though I still am.
