    Ahh...the nostalgia! Yeah, I probably can't wait for the PC release, I'll have to pre-order on PS4. Only because I have an unused Amazon gift card though.

    go f off! i grew up with final fantasy 7 and didn’t have cutscenes added just to pad time. this opening scenes is indication of them possibly artificial increasing the game length. They may be trying to hide the fact, midcarg is just as short as it was in the original game. The game isn’t going to be a purchase until i see unbiased reviews and it proves it’s game length. In today’s world of gaming, developers and publishers word is just as meaningless as the bible!

    Ah this brings back memories.
    Now everybody remembers that it is a waste of time to level up Aeris/Aerith right? Unless that flying saucer trick will work again in the remake.
    Will need some sort of cheat engine or a save editor to bring her back and utilize her throughout the game. I could be wrong though cause I do not know much about the remake, but if they fallow closely or exactly to the original then my hypothesis could be correct.

    In the ps1 game, you could be out of midgar in less than 10 hours, even less if it's not your first playthrough. So there has to be tons of new content if they claim the first episode to be a 30hr game..

    Hence why I only say "mostly". And I think most of us can agree that Dawn of the New World was just Horrendous in general.

    For me, the game was 99:99:99 long. Yes, actually. Got to level up that materia and collect all the weapons. Don’t get me started on the chocobo’s or those awesomely fun mini games.

    I won't be buying.

    I wasn't really keen on it to begin with (the original is one of my all time favourite games)

    Since I found out you're only actually getting the Midgar section of the game / very small portion, decided I definitely won't buy.

    If they'd been more transparent I wouldn't have been as bothered, but I feel they're trying to dupe their loyal fans(the one they have left)

    If they're quoting 30hrs, that'll be the max, so you can pretty much guarantee it'll be much, much shorter in reality.

    It depends how they measure the time too, they could be real sketchy with a game like this, time spent exploring to find collectables, etc.

    Why is Aerith running from something that isn't even there and in distress at 2:30. It literally makes no sense. Did they just shoehorn that in randomly. I'll def wait till all parts are out and buy them together for the price they should be wich is 60 Euro's. Def won't be paying 120 Euro's for a cut up experience that should be 60.

    There goes the COD Casual. Oh wait, are you one of those degenerates that play games like fortnite on phone and call yourself a gamer. How Shameful :rofl2:

    Imagine you would have a game like the Original Final Fantasy VII made with the posibillitys of the NES back in the day. And then They would Remake it on PS1. It would be at least 50 times the Invest in Money and Manpower to make that because on NES you have crap graphics and not much possibilities for many things. Exactly the same can be said about This Scenario. If you would Strictly Remake the Original you would probably get the whole game at once. But it would feel strange. Because many Scenes would feel Dead because of the new Graphics. Many Mechanics would feel Clunky and badly aged. Thats why they Reimagine the Game within the new Possibilities. And the Game was frickin HUGE. With the new Awesome Graphics and added Content(for example Sidemissions, Mor indepth Side Characters to get to know and so on) its no wonder that they cant make it fit just one game. ALSO its a huge project. It was long discussed if it would even be made real. Because its a huge investment and they werent sure if it pays off. So they make Episodes instead of one Gigantomaniac Game so they could pull the emergency break if it flops. ALso that way they make more money. its always part of buissiness to make money.

    I played this game as a kid, then I played it again recently on the switch. it wasn't quite as good as I remembered, but I still enjoyed it. I got stuck a couple of times like the:

    Tifa gas chamber minigame. I didn't know you could do two motions at once. that was like a ten-twenty minutes of figuring it out. lol

    actually, the longest I got stuck was:

    I think trying to find the lunar harp. I was stuck for several days. ;)

    it could be just disc 1. iirc, I think that's in
    the home of the ancients
    . it took me around 20-25 hours to get there in what I'd call a blind run, since I remembered little about the game. the discs did seem pretty lengthy. in the switch version, you can save at the end of each disc even though it isn't necessary.

    Cinematics are always fine and dandy. But not really what I care about.

    Takes me back to the old PSX vs SNES days;
    WHOAAA FMV cinematics look awesome.
    Ahhhh gameplay itself is a clusterfuck.

    Sure things have changed a lot ... but still cinematics are just that ... cinematics.

    as far as im informed the cinematics in this Remake are made from the In-Game Engine.

    Better to hav than not and the playstn proved devs were excited with what Sony had to offer making all these new cinematic scenes for ps1 and so many games helped sell the playstn because of this - so it's not just they are cinematics

    If you played the original, you know why she is distressed.

    I hope they are :) but that is not a given at all. Even though we have made tremendous leaps where game engines are used for the cinematics not always does that equal a 'seamless' experience.

    But sure I get you all want them but the fact that I prefer a sound game over pretty cinematics is a different story all together.
    Also not something we should further follow up on (not the core topic for one). It's basically the old GFX vs Gameplay debate and let's just say to each his own.

    I just hope this game will see light sooner rather than being an end of life title all together.
