Final Fantasy VII Remake Eye Candy (Art Panels) Update



  • Quick someone save them before the Square Spoiler Prevention Force kills @CGamor7



  • @-Jak- I both agree and disagree:

    Agree - It's been two and a half years already, which it feels like shorter than that.

    Disagree - Every day is agony not knowing something, and when something like this happens (seeing new art/screenshots/interviews/etc.), it makes it more apparent we have so little to go off of.



  • omg the church !!!!!!!!!!!!1



  • I hope they keep the high contrast style of the original games. The concept art looks good, but it's just concept art



  • @Brannox lol, I think im more excited for this game then ive been for any other game in 20 years.

    Our first Aerith reveal lol.

    I know they wont be, but would be cool if those were all pre rendered backgrounds. so pretty.



  • @CGamor7 im gonna cry when she dies all over again



  • @FF7Cloud Not unless you eject the disk right before she gets killed. Then you can keep her in the party.



  • @CGamor7 lol i remember going to school and everyone had a cheat to reviv Aeris



  • @FF7Cloud Yeah the game shark right? I remember that too. But i remember also trying every stupid thing i heard about it (opening the disk tray to stop the cut scene etc...). It was some serious business back then lol. I dont even know where half those rumors originated. Im guilty of spending way to much time trying to figure that out. Hope the remake brings back all the feels.



  • There's always the possibility she doesn't die in the Remake, as the developers have mentioned there's possibility for significant changes. I personally think it'd be too different of a story without her death, but hey, you never know.

    Is it weird I'm really excited to see if they keep the scene with Cloud being in drag? Because.. I am. That better not get cut.



  • @SabotageTheTruth it would be less controversial now then it would then would it not?



  • @FF7Cloud Honestly, with some echo chambers online and more people being connected, along with better visuals, I can almost see the articles complaining about it already...



  • @SabotageTheTruth edit clouds head on tim curry

    Youtube Video



  • @SabotageTheTruth sadly thats the truth



  • @SabotageTheTruth one thing I miss about games in the 90's especially RPG's was the use of quarky humour. I find games take themselves to serious now. So yes I think and hope that scene will be there along with the rest of the humour you could find in the game.



  • @CGamor7 keep the censored language? lol



  • @SabotageTheTruth
    If they make it so that Aretith can be revived, I want them to make it stupidly hard to do so.



  • @FF7Cloud Yeah, I was thinking about the cursing the other day. It's such a core part of both Barrett and Cid. Thing is, hearing them fully voice acted actually saying those words, somehow... that feels like that would change their characters slightly. So while it would be extremely strange for neither of them to curse, it's also going to take some adjusting when/if they do. Will Barrett still beat on his chest like a gorilla when he's angry? I also need that in my life.



  • @CGamor7 This is, and has been since its reveal, my #1 most coveted physical/digital item on the planet Earth. Yes, I know I have a problem X-D

    You know, for all the flack pre-rendered backgrounds have gotten, they weren't the problem. It was the sentient blocks that populated the world was what stood out. So yeah, the backgrounds were absolutely gorgeous, but in the 3D space, I'm not sure it'll work.

    For everyone else:

    No, Aerith needs to stay dead. I understand there's going to be changes, and that's fine, but hopefully nothing affecting the core pillars of the story (Cloud's memories, Aerith's death, Jenova, Sephiroth, etc.). My absolute biggest hope is bring in some story ties from Crisis Core. There's some stuff in that game that really fleshes out Gaia.

    For as much of a talking point about the Wall Market sequence (Yes, that includes the Honey Bee Inn) initially it'll cause a stir, but I don't think it'll be as big of a deal as some think. It'll be there, it'll retain some of what made it originally stand out, but personally, I see it as a "much ado about nothing" kind of thing.

    I SO want them to keep the cursing. But they won't because I think Square has said something some time ago about trying to never make an M-rated Final Fantasy game. I mean that certainly was the case with the original VII by having very little blood, censorship, and the times referenced tobacco and alcohol were few and far between. But cursing aside, let's not forget: Barrett and Cid are not great people. Especially Cid. Remember how you're introduced to him. The way he treats Shera will NOT be in this Remake, of that I'm 10000% sure.



  • @FF7Cloud @SabotageTheTruth @Brannox you know, I never even thought about the swearing. I have no clue on how they plan on incorporating that with VA. I think part of the charm and humour in the original is that you get to read it. I think the game will have a more serious tone, unless the VA's can really capture the emotion and or humour.

    They'll probably rework cids scene but there's no reason why the emotion and brutality of that relationship shouldn't be shown. But they will have to write it a lot better.
