So here's my honest take after spending some time with the PS4 and Switch versions.

For Console players: Buy it. It's the only version that is available anyway and it's definitely worth the 20$. Especially on the Switch. Sure, you don't have the trophies (big deal anyway 🙄) but you get portability + the graphics don't look as bad on the 720p screen.

For PC users... Honestly, if you don't mind spending some time modding (and since you're on this forum, I'm gonna assume you don't), you don't need to buy this version. I think that the original, modded game might be a better fit. Unless you REALLY want the turbo option. Other than the turbo option, if you already own the original, you don't need to buy this one.

Have a karma +1  (because someone *cough cough*) is karma-bombing everyone these days out of spite.  Very honest, but still leaves me in the lurch being a PC'00 owner of FF8 and only a PS2 for consoles... I'll still have to wait for O8 it seems  :-[

The Turbo option was in the 2013 version, too. I was surprised it wasn't in FF7 at all (except for the Switch version from what i've read).

Well I actually didn't know that the steam version of VIII had the turbo lol. FF7 on PS4 has the turbo too btw, I believe the same is true for the Xbox.

Haha yeah, there's a lot of salt around. Well this new version isn't "bad" by all means. While I do believe that the older versions with the right mods can end up looking better, for people who are too lazy to bother with modding and just want something that's ready to go out of the box... for 19.99$ it's still a good buy. Besides it's a matter of time before it goes on sale and drops to 14.99$ or something.

Here's some more salt for you. Preferring an out-of-box experience doesn't equate to being lazy. Some folks just want to use their time elsewhere.

Absolutely. I didn't mean lazy in a negative way. More like "I don't have time for all this and just want to enjoy the game".

Indeed... like spending the weekend removing this monstrosity, then chasing down why two of the new AFCIs kept tripping.

Well, ok, I didn't really *want* to use my time doing that, but it had to be done before I could do anything on my "want to do" list, like prep for a likely PHEV replacement for my 14 year old Civic.

I know modders really hate to work with this remaster but I really really hope that someone could work on it.

I just can't stand at the ugliness of the 2003 character model. Even fanmade HD skin cant fix it.

Interesting question from the Steam forums: how does Boko, the G.F. summoned with the Gysahl Green item, exactly work in this version? I mean, its attacks.

In the original version(s), in order to get more powerful attacks, you needed to play Chocobo World and get "kisses", each kiss gave a more powerful attack. ChocoFire, ChocoFlare, ChocoMeteor, ChocoBocle.

But since there's no CW in this, how are you getting the better attacks? There are videos of the Remastered in YouTube with all attacks, how is this possible? It depends on character level, or is it random now?
Angelo search now gives everything you'd get from CW.

I imagine it's probably random, like how Gilgamesh wields a certain sword at random.

So, apparently FF7 and 8 are getting a physical release for the Nintendo Switch in the Asia markets. They'll come bundled in the same box and have full English support.


Time to pay those import taxes...  :-D

"Full english support" that was a stupid advertisement remark. Since when FF7 and FF8 have asian language? (chinese etc)
All we got since then is all either Japanese or English. And we prefer English over everything else. If it's not in english then dont even bother to call it Asian release.

Uh it wasn't a "stupid advertisement remark". It was a fact. A lot of people are under the impression that Play-Asia only ships Japanese games, which is incorrect. That was merely to clear any doubts that this physical version maybe would support Japanese only.
 
Is that really triggering? lmao.

What's wrong with it? Square pulled another one?

Yeah right? That's why I really hope that someone could work with this remaster so we can play with these new models. Creating a perfect remaster.

For my remastered is not only graphic update. Remastered is update gameplay and history.

Re: FFVIII Remastered : Voiceover rumor

What about the rumor "voiceover" for the REMAKE ?

https://nichegamer.com/2019/07/03/final-fantasy-viii-remastered-seems-to-include-full-voice-overs/

I've lost the information on the voiceover, is it included to FF VIII REMASTERED ? Any information ?

It was false. No voiceovers.
