    I for one intend to play this and then angrily go straight to twitter and demand that Sean Murray deliberately pulled the wool over our eyes!

    That Sean Murray. He can't keep getting away with it!

    Seriously though, just call this one Final Fantasy VII Remake: EPISODE MIDGAR or some shit.

    Spoke to a mate on sunday who isn't following gaming any more, was going to buy "the remake" anyway. He had absolutely no idea it was just episode one.

    It does seem to be an incredibly misleading title so I can only think they are doing it on purpose.

    I have serious doubts they will ever see this project through to completion. I'm sure they intend to, but that title tells you everything you need to know. Midgar is their baby.

    On the plus side, if that really is the final title, and the game ends after Midgar, then people will be able to say that "in the FF7 Remake Aeris doesn't die".

    Unless Squenix changes that too.

    Theyve always talked about doing episodic releases. No matter how much money they spend making the rest of game or how long it will take, its FF7. It will always make its money back.

    The naming convention is weird not to include part 1 or an extra subtitle somewhere but what would a Square Enix game be without ridiculous titles like Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue.

    They really need to add a subtitle or something. So many people are going to buy it thinking its the whole game.

    The only thing I remember about Zack was him getting his ass thrown out of the room by Sephiroth literally one second after entering.

    Yeah, Zack was basically a throwaway device in FFVII and unfortunately most of the content they've produced in that universe since then has painted him as the hero of the tale and Cloud as some bumbling hand me down who lucked into being the hero. He's made to be way more important than he should be.

    Saw the above pic for the boxart on another site not too long ago. They made mention that it might throw some people as it seems to give no mention that this is only part one. Not a full game.
    If there planning to charge full whack for the next parts it's a bit naughty.

    Called it :)

    Similarly, the Shinra headquarters has been expanded with more explorable areas and floors.
    Granted, that doesnít seem to be all they are doing and there is clearly a shot of sephiroth which shouldnít exist but still... I was right :).

    I've only just seen the new trailer. The story is looking like it could be getting quite corny. Not a big fan of the voice acting of anybody. The men sound a little constipated and the women soft and flaky.

    I'm also really hoping they don't sacrifice all the politics and end of the world narrative to further push this Cloud/Sephiroth rivalry that didn't really exist in the original.

    Omg. Please don't turn this into an emo sausage festival. I mean, I'm unlikely to play it much because I don't really play these types of games anymore, but I'd still be upset.

    The main thing about introducing Sephiroth earlier, though I know why they've done it, is that it was actually really effective to only "hear tell" of the main villain for such a length of time.

    In the original he's literally only mentioned in passing until the Kalm flashback

    And then you only ever actually see him right at the end.

    But yeah, I agree.

    Are there any JRPG games with acceptable voice acting? Iíd much prefer dialogue by text in the manner of the original.

    @erniewhatbert I prefer FF12's English voices to the Japanese. They did that properly and make clever use of regional accents. Not many others, though.

    @erniewhatbert A fair point. I didn't mind the dialogue in the Xenoblade games, but can see that annoying a lot of folk. Just wished they didn't fall into typical American stereotypes.

    I much prefer actual English dubs and not for the accents. I'd prefer text though, like yourself.

    Canít wait to find out more about new character Roche aka Speed Demon who constantly squeals his motorbike tyres and spits smoke and rubber in his comrades faces, he sounds awesome and totally in keeping with the tone of the classic game I remember

    Haha.

    To be fair while I know what you mean, the original game was goofy as shit in places
