Final Fantasy VII remake gameplay looks like...

This gen is all about remake/remaster.... and AAA titles will find the most expensive way to charge you. I won't be surprised if it cost $60USD per episode.

How much were the .Hack:// games in North America? Was in the Philippines when they came out, so I got pirated copies for $1 each. If they were full price each, then I guess there's a precedent for it to happen.

I think we should all wait until all "episodes" are released before buying if that's the way they go. But I like to think that they will go they way of Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VII.2, Final Fantasy VII.3.

As for exploring and recruiting optional allies, my guess would be they won't be optional anymore. Lets face it Vincent has had his own game and featured fairly prominently in Advent Children. Yuffie not so much.

And as for finding the Ultima / omega Weapons they will probably be locked to later discs as you will likely not be able to take their first punch given your level on disc 1 or 2.

This is my hope anyway. I really, really, really hope they don't do a strictly linear path like in a telltale game.

I remain optimistic but cautious and don't expect anything for a looooooooooong time anyway.

I think that making the game in episodes is a bad idea. Maybe they announced it to early and should have announced later and released it as a full title like many expected after E3 this year. I have never played FF7 before and after E3:s revelation of the game I really want to play the game but I think I will wait til the full game is released. And I don't think they will release the game in episodes with the same time window like Telltale does with there titels, this game is bigger I think and needs more work.

My fears of it being episodic is will they remove the world map to make it work?

 

Also i do like the way Max says it could work (1 episode is a much more fleshed out midgar) but then it wont be that as they would have to make many more eps to make sure other locations got the same treatment.

 

And no i dont want a whole episode dedicated to the turks those guys were boring as hell.

I never liked the story or the cast. The gameplwy is the only thing ff7 did well imo.

I might give the nee one a whirl if the combat is good though. I havent played ff15 yet so i dunno how it plays. But if the combat is anything like any of the lightning games, check me out of the building. Worst rpg combat mechanics ever imo.

So I just saw the 'gameplay' trailer, which features like 5 seconds of gameplay and the rest is basically watching cutscenes and the player navigating the world... I hate it when people call a video a 'gameplay' video when it's mostly cutscene and navigation. blah.

 

Anyway what little was shown of the combat looked like a lightning game to me since it had a menu still. blugh. I mean I love turn based rpgs with menus, but real time with a menu? da fu?

This remake will be good. I don't mind if they add more content, even a Co-Op somehow.. As long as the core of the story is still there...then the heart is still there.

meh this is bullshit, first they take out the old battle system and now there making it episodic???? fucking my wallet is already worried by how much there going to charge us for this, and like that joke pic above says the DLCs (which come on there will be for sure) will also add to the cost....man i feel SE are going to milk us hard for getting this remake lol.

it's going to be more action oriented like XV than the turnbased action-bar version the original had.

Personally I can forgive this because we all know that it wasn't the gameplay that made us fall in love with the game; it was the story and characters.  But take note Square Enix, you are officially on watch now due to this giant unecessary change.  Make sure you don't do anything to the characters or story, or you will be in some serious trouble.

if the combat isnt the same though its not a remake its more like a reboot or so
