Some folks just want to use their time elsewhere.
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.

... this doesn't answer my question. You don't get these attacks from items. The Gysahl Green is used to summon Boko, the attacks depend on the "kisses" obtained in CW.

I'm just asking how they managed to bring ALL the four attacks in the Remastered without being able to get the kisses.

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

Well, who knows, i still don't own that version and there are no gameplay videos to show that...

Talking about Chocobos, i saw some gameplay videos and i think they put the old version of "Mods de Chocobo" with the bad loop. That was fixed in RaW W05, more than two years ago...

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.

... that's not how a remaster works. That's a remake or even a reboot.

The word "remastered" is mostly used for audio and video only (or if you just want to make confusion to your customers like in this case, as there's nothing really remastered)
