    Am i the only one not impressed with final fantasy 7 remake. Wtf i mean sure its got nice graphics but it looks like they turned it into a "monster hunterisk" button masher bullshit 3d run around game. Do you have to switch between characters during fights to control the other. Seams like they did away with the turn based strategy style that is in its self final fantasy 7. I seen nothing in the video to suggest the use of magic and wheres the aeons. Also did i hear correct that the first part is just the midgar escape. So you dont even get to start the actual game before its over and u have to wait what another 3 to 4 years for the next part probably on a completely different system. Who in there right fuckin mind is ok with this.

    Edit i guess the fire raining down could be a spell.

    It was all in-engine and at parts it had a third-person view that looked like gameplay minus the UI. I can't be sure though.

    Nothing was said about this game being two parts total. This release is a multi-DISC game. You get 2 blu-rays for your $60. Disc 1 is Midgar, Disc 2 is something else. There might still be more episodes in the future, but that has nothing to do with this 2-disc division.

    And that fact right there would justify splitting up this game. If they put enough work to fill two blu-rays on the 4K-inept Playstation platform, its unlikely this release will be lacking in content.

    Did you forget about crystal chronicles remastered’s new trailer? They added voice acting to the game and characters shout out the name of magic when used. Up to 4 player co-op online mode.

    you obv didnt watch because there is still and element of ATB in the game where you can pause time and make choices. As for the magic and materia thing they showed the cure and thunder spells in the trailer against the scorpion boss. They didnt show the summons because they want to keep it a surprise and show it later on

    It sounds like they're really going to "flesh out" Midgar. There's a lot of FF7 related sidestories that will be made canon. Think 'Crisis Core,' 'Before Crisis,' 'Advent Children,' 'Dirge of Cerberus,' etc...

    2 Blu-Rays for just Midgar seems like overkill.

    Truth be told, a lot was left on the table for lore in FF7. I don’t mind episodic releases as long as it has content

    is it? Now I'm confused, does this mean they will release all of FF7R parts in March 3 next year? No split up of base content release?

    Edit: I read it more about it. Remake will still be split in parts - not sure how many parts though, last time it was 2 parts like I said earlier. The first part is still in Migdar, but the game is so large they have to fit it in 2 game discs. They just wanted to emphasize that the Midgar part will be huge, different from original FF7, that why they said that.

    That means more will come, with different parts in tone / different arc.

    the whole of SE games looked really outdated in terms of graphics. Horrible press conference. Final Fantasy 7 looks like a 2014 game. The Avengers' faces looked like generic NPC characters too. Very underwhelming.

    Wait, so if FFVII will be 2 parts only and part 1 in midgar only, which is only the first 10% of the original game, does that mean the rest 90% will be covered in part 2?
    Or it's going to be more than 2 parts?

    Wow. FFVII looks like it will be my first FF game, I hope I'm not missing out on too much of the story.
    Avengers looks really good, though I wonder how gameplay would work.

    It's 2 discs for Part 1 (Midgar) due to the size of it, apparently. They said they really wanted to flesh it out, so it'll probably be pretty different compared to the original. They've yet to say how many parts the remake will have, though some people are still assuming that it'll probably be 3 (in reference to the original PS1 release being divided into 3 discs). I feel like they'll probably talk more about that once it's released next year.

    Whoa, they kept ATB system in ff7. There's a lot of fluff and busy work, but that's the same system as the original. I'm happy with this. Definitely redeems the remake in my eyes.
