Final Fantasy VII Remake

  • @dmcmaster Honestly, so far I can't think of worthwhile additions I want to see for the combat, I think it's very solid already. Maybe I'll have more to say after finishing it.

    I do have problems when trying to lock on and attack a specific part of an enemy. It's probably just me but I keep switching targets unintentionally, switching targets feels so sensitive. Also, the lock on camera is kinda claustrophobic, like the way it frames you and the enemy makes me uncomfortable for some reason, lol.

  • @bam541
    Fyi you can change the camera distance in the options, feels way less claustrophobic.

  • @dmcmaster I didn't know that! Gonna try it out later.

  • @bam541
    Trust me it's a life saver, especially in combat

  • Found the spoiler mode pretty disappointing. They spent way to much time theorising about the ending when there's so much to the game. Since I've got plenty of time on my hands at the minute & listened to Minnmax's deepest dive, this is the kind of detailed breakdown I was looking for, though definitely not for everyone.

  • @paulmci27 minmax?

  • @dmcmaster It's a YouTube channel formed by former Game Informers.

  • I found both highly enjoyable for completely different reasons and since I love Remake so much so it's jumped to being my second favorite game of all time, I have been devouring each and every perspective that's out there.

    Going through the game on Hard mode, and I've listened/watched to a double digit amount of spoilercasts or videos and I still can't get enough.

    But I guess the Spoiler Mode is my favorite of all that I've seen because I enjoyed seeing the passion and excitement that I feel was more on display than anything else I've seen.

  • Kinda spoiler, but still neat to see the 7 and 10 connection referenced in some way

  • Credits rolled. 47:26:41

  • Just reached Chapter 13, the feels are really starting to hit! Also, Chapter 11 is a pretty nice surprise.

    Also, anybody picking this up? This thing's pretty much a college course book.

    Question, kinda spoiler.

    So I'm trying do to the "get all dresses" trophy. I am not sure how to get it though. There are many guides on the net but they all give various step of deatils what I have to do in order to get the dresses. Some say I have to do special side quests and pick different dialogue options on various NPCs in chpater 9. Some say its literally just 3 picks in chapter 3, 8 and 9.

    Do anyone that have done it got a confirmed "right" way of doing it?

  • @lotias PowerPyx's trophy guides are typically really solid. Here's a clear guide for the dresses. It all comes down basically to the Chapter 3 special Tifa dialogue choice and then to the number of side quests done in Chapters 8 and 9.

  • Finally a decent video on Final Fantasy 7. Not some ballbeg talking shit about the ending for 3 hours.

    This is already my GOTY, I can't think of anything that will beat it.

    I am lacking superlatives to describe it, it is one of the most delightful, endearing, exciting, epic, heartwarming videogames I've ever played.

    They surpassed every possible expectation I had for this remake, they nailed it on every single front: it looks and sounds sublime, the attention to detail is unbelievable with its hundreds of nods to the original, the combat system is unexpectedly fun and deep (although with a couple frustrations).

    It took so long to come out that my hype had sort of deflated before launch, but after playing this, the sequel instantly became my most anticipated game ever.

    I could heap praise on it for hours, there are SO MANY amazing things in this game. I wholeheartedly encourage you guys to watch The Deepest Dive from MinnMax by the way, it's a super fun way to experience the game as they basically did a spoiler mode broken up into parts, one until chapter 4, one until chapter 9, etc. And they purposely all stopped playing at the same point each time, so they could both go super deep into those chapters specifically, and speculate on what was coming next without knowing. I watched them as I reached those parts every time, but watching them all after you're done will surely be cool too.

    I don't even feel like playing any other videogame after this.
