  • I’d definitely be OK with a remake if square-enix did one. Maybe give us a better battle system that doesn’t make you draw magic for half the entire game.

  • Final fantasy 8 merita un remake fatto come si deve, dovrebbe tornare la vecchia SQUARESOFT innanzitutto, la Square Enix ha fatto solo danni, e dal remastered si vede già uno squall che ha Una faccia che non è la sua, mi fa piacere che esca il remastered, ma da fan sfegatato ho il dubbio che lo rovineranno. E ff8 essendo a mio avviso il miglior ff non lo meriterebbe.

  • So, nothing you couldn't have already done with an emulator for many, many years. Laziest 'remaster' ever. But SE has always been an incredibly lazy company trying to milk their old Squaresoft fans for all their worth, so I guess nobody should be surprised, even though I still am.

  • Slapping a few higher textures on the same wireframe is not a remaster.

  • Squeenix: "here you go guys. Just like the original. No wait.... no more turn based, kingdom hearts battle system! ... also all your GFs are DLC. And a white boy with a name like Squall is too disrespectful to the native Americans, his name is Gary now"

  • I might not be the only one, but I'm more hyped about this than VII Remake. This will be pure gold for certain, VII Remake can go wrong on so many levels

  • Finally... FFVIII gets the HD remaster treatment it deserved.

    GhostlyOutcastGhostlyOutcastDay ago
  • Square-Enix also shared details on what's new in this version of the game. It's not a ton of content, but there are some notable changes. - Battle Reinforcement: Keeps HP and ATB at maximum, allowing special skills to be activated at any time. - No Encounters: Turn on / off battle encounters. - Triple Speed: All scenes advance at three times the speed (excluding movies). I dont know, but after geting Diablo you can learn No encounters, so why this? :-)

  • Very happy it's finally getting a resmaster, but Squall's character model looks nothing like him!! PS1 model was closer to his FMV model. Disappointing.

  • Surely 20 years warrants a remake. Sure a remaster is good but that's something I expected to have been done years ago and as it hadn't been, I really did expect a remake around now instead. Maybe a couple of years after the FF7 remakes' release 🤞 Super hyped for that by the way! Trailers look incredible.
