@kyleforrester87, while outdated by today's standards, I found that the 3D graphics of the DS remake made me more immersed in the game world (and I played it on a tablet where it was blown up, so I'm sure it'll hold up even better on a DS or 3DS screen).

Currently Playing:
Switch - NSMBU Deluxe
PS4 - Moss

I prefer the look of the PSP version. The sprites are gorgeous and it really shines on the PSP's screen, and I imagine the Vita's even more so. It's just lovely You can also switch between classic audio and the DS version's remixes and it includes the After Years sequel. I still haven't played that yet.

The first time I played the game was on the GBA, and I loved it. I haven't played that version in years but I reckon it probably holds up reasonably well given the visual style. I played VI on the GBA too as I never played the PS1 version.

@themcnoisy: ahhh don't get too comfortable, I still reckon the hardest boss (assuming playing at normal levels, not ridiculously OP) is Yunalesca, which is after Flux!

I have to agree somewhat with @kyleforrester87 though, while I did still really enjoy FFX HD, I found myself enjoying it far less than I had in my original few playthroughs years ago. The story seemed to drag a lot more than I remembered, never really managing to build much momentum.

As for which version of FFIV to pick up, I definitely prefer the more traditional look of the complete collection version. Also, having additional content that isn't in the DS version gives it bonus points!

@RR529: @mookysam: @SteveButler2210: Thanks guys. I went for the Vita version in the end. Just beat the mist dragon, I don't remember a great deal of the original but the modern tweaks are pretty apparent. Looking forward to getting into this...

@kyleforrester87: I'm half tempted to pick up a PS TV dirt cheap, purely to play this, Dissidia and FF Tactics on the big screen!

@SteveButler2210: Get Disgaea 5 if you want a trpg. 5 hours in and highly recommended but - you do need to buy into it and the first hour was all over the place without much in tandem. But its so deep the likes of ff tactics just pale in comparison.

@mookysam: I like sprites in general, although everyone complains I NEVER smooth pixels when given the option - that looks awful. Even my mega drive hooked up looks good when I box it in to the screen 4:3 although the black borders and unclear writing are annoying.

Good to see you peeps playing ff4.

@kyleforrester87: Have you seen Tabata's reason why Noctis and co all wear black?

"In the Kingdom of Lucis where our heroes reside, the colour black has historically been treated as a special colour. Because of this, the attire of the royal family and those in occupations closely tied to them are unified by having black as a base colouring."

Cool I think.

@themcnoisy: I don't like to smooth pixels either where there's the option because apart from sometimes looking odd I think it loses a little something. I love the wonderful animations many sprites have and I guess if they're smoothed it's harder to really appreciate them or see the skill and artistry that went into originally making them.

Who's enjoying FF7 HD then?

I didn't actually realise how many times you're given the option to make Cloud say "Not interested" lol. Thought it was something they started doing with Advent Children!

I'm not sure this scene will make the remake!

@kyleforrester87: I'M LOVING IT, also doing some YouTube Vids with it, not a complete playthrough mind you just bits and pieces

i also like that it's fixed the translation

do you want control of the games you buy, do you want to be able to play them when you want to with out needing to pay a monthly subscription & also pay the cost of the game

do you NOT want a faceless company to take your games away at a moments notice if so then #BoycottStadia

kyleforrester87

@FullbringIchigo: Lol yes I noticed this change, but there are other things they haven't fixed. The occasionally dodgy translation never really bothered me too much, though.

I was worried they'd call her Aerith by default in the EU version - Aeris all the way! haha

@kyleforrester87: i actually prefer Aerith myself i think it sounds and looks better than Aeris plus it is what her name always was so whenever i play FFVII now i always change it

but that's me ^_^

i also noticed quite a few times that a lot of other lines have been changed too, sometimes whole conversations are different in this version

you know now that Final Fantasy VII is getting it's Remake does anyone else want them to release the extra stuff we never got in English such as the Novela "On the Way to a Smile" that bridges the gap between FFVII and Advent Children or the Ultimania's?

@FullbringIchigo: I'm not overly keen about some of the additional guff that has been released around the main game, but I'd like to see them expand on some of the elements that have been alluded to with Zack etc.

Playing through the HD version again there are deffinetly room for improvements with the pacing in certain sections of the story. Take Dyne's section for example - the first we learn of him is in Coral, and that Barret hasn't seen him for 5 years or so. Then, literally 10 minutes later, Dyne turns up in the Goldsaucer and kills a load of people. The concept works but the pacing feels unrealistic and wouldn't feel believable in a remake. They need to introduce characters like Dyne much earlier in the game and have it build up more instead of packing it all into one 30 minute section.

@kyleforrester87: you never know, with the Remake being bigger and new story content being done for it that might happen

@FullbringIchigo: Yeah, don't get me wrong it's charming and works great in the original, and I love the way you go from town to town finding things out about the main characters as you visit the place relevant to them. But for a modern game I think it will feel a little jarring if some of the narrative points aren't knitted together a little better.

So which is the better HD game ff7 or ff10?

@kyleforrester87: I always liked the stories at each section you visit, but there is definitely scope for SE to change the
Pacing. Red 13 in particular I found it paced super quick at the time and what he is etc.

@FullbringIchigo: I read an article for the PC mod which altered the translations (maybe the defacto mod which was brought in to this release at release) Really interesting - 2 people were involved and Aerith / Aeris for all the changes was the most discussed change. I will try to find the article.

you know after watching the remake trailer, i noticed how much Cloud has changed over the years since the original PS1 release, i made this to show how much and yes i know i missed an "I" out of dissidia

i actually think his Advent Children design was the best my self, what about you?

@FullbringIchigo: The very first one. Classic. Its usually the character portraits that stick in my mind, on every ff game the portraits are brilliant. My favourite part of ff 13 was the 6 frame animations in the menus.
