    I wouldn't trust these cunts to reheat a curry, let alone remake FF7 in a way that even does it half the justice it deserves.

    I'm wary. It's taken them long enough to make FF15, and you could tell from the limited scope of 13 that fancy graphics took a massive toll on content, reducing everything down to linear corridors for 90% of the game.

    Remaking something of FF7's scope to modern standards? I can see them cutting a lot.

    Nomura directing? Oh dear, wasn't he sacked from directing any more FFs for being kind of shit?

    This is how I feel, 100%.

    Maybe I'll be proved wrong, but frankly I can't see it doing anything but trample on my enjoyment of the original. I'm also not a fan of the visual style.

    So meh.

    Ah shit it's not the FFX-2/FFXIII director is it?

    From a remake I'd just hope for great visuals, tidying up any "mistakes" from last time and tightening certain parts of the gameplay like the soldier marching bit (as in, make it not shit) but otherwise battles to remain the same and no rotating 3D camera. Too much to ask though, will be "only control Cloud" combat I imagine that JRPGs are obsessed with now. Still interested in seeing how it turns out of course but as Elstoof says (and after playing the FFXV demo), don't hold out much hope.

    Must admit I can't see it being up to much. Time has just moved on now. I'll still buy it and hammer it though. Bet we won't see it before end 2017 at best though!

    I imagine they'll make it all dark and edgy too. FFVII had some dark moments, sure, but it also had loads of humour and odd moments.

    They'll probably go with the serious, miserable Cloud from the crap Advent Children film, instead of the Cloud who displayed humour and sarcasm throughout. Aside from when he's mind controlled or when he lost his shit, he was never that miserable.

    It's being directed by the buy who did Advent Children. So I fully expect it'll be a joyless shitfest devoid of anything approaching humour.

    Nomura is the reason it went all dark and edgy in the first place, he just did the character drawings before getting given the reigns of directing. Kitase is producing so there's hope, but it's an impossible task really. They'll have to leave all the odd bits in - cross dressing, brothels etc - to keep the fans happy, but how the fuck are they going to do that and attract new players who missed it first time round and won't get it?

    I just hope they've spent the last 10 years figuring this shit out.

    Yeah it going to be difficult for them. Firstly to appease the fans, but also to the people who want it to be advent children the game in terms of looks and massive 3d world etc.

    Personally , i said this a few times, i was really impressed how Transistor looked. It reminded me of Midgar a lot .If they used that engine i be happy.

    I'd love that approach. Just something "cartoony", keeping in with the original art style. Maybe even cel-shaded. Something like Valkyrie Profile for the characters.

    That's how I see FFVII in my head. Not Advent Children.

    If they do manage to keep all the goofier moments in I might be interested. But I can't see how they can include stuff like the Honey Bee inn or Red XIII wearing a SOLDIER uniform without it being really jarring with the art style.

    Even Cait Sith is a weird character to have in such a "realistic" environment.

    One other thought: As it'll be voice acted it'll be interesting to see if they go with Aeris or Aerith.

    They should go the middle ground and alternate it in the subtitles.

    Or in the English language version, have them speak Aeris but subtitle Aerith, just to piss people off.

    They'll probably change it so she doesn't die any more.

    They should add in a really bizarre and convoluted way of bringing her back to life.

    Would rather they got rid of both systems and made it more like an action brawler style. Final Fantasy 7 with the mechanics of DMC/Bayonetta/Ninja Gaiden/etc? Can you imagine the glory of it?!

    I'd rather they make it not suck this time around.

    Everyone gave him a lot of shit, but the OP was absolutely bang on the money. Fair play.
