    Tifa is always offered as the rape slave whenever the party loses against an enemy.

    Not implied, outright stated (unsure if you need to have Aeris and Tifa along in the meeting for that).

    FF9 has the best setting and art of any Final Fantasy. And it's not even close. FF6 and FF7 are just fantasy steampunk/dieselpunk respectively. FFX is just boring. FFXII has some absolutely GORGEOUS locations. But FF9 is "fantasy" at its highest, more beautiful form.

    The only downside is that Zidane touches my girl's butt and ends up with her.

    If it's PC it doesn't count. To properly rustle my retro-inquisitor jimmies it must be some fuckwit forcing the console version of a beloved and cherished classic into horrible, unnatural, and clearly unholy contortions for mediocre results and dubious gain (aka every console-based IR upscaling escapade ever attempted). PC has always been a mod metropolis; go wild.

    Me and it is true. If you go with original game then you need to emulate also scanlines because that low res art was designed with those black lines in mind. The whole point of this is to trick your brain into filling those places effectively making it higher res than it is.
    Which means for example almost no aliasing despite using very low resolution.

    That is the same idea how your brain sees tv picture despite the fact that each line displayed vanishes after next line when it creates picture and yet you see full picture instead of one line at the time.

    But here you have effectively AI adding missing detail which would be reproduced by your brain (neural networks in your brain lol) creating high res picture

    Yes it is actual mod you can install on PC version of FFIX

    What I always liked, and wished they'd explored more of, was the mist dividing the continent up into an archipelago of plateaus.

    That plus the ships powered by, and sailing upon, the mist should have been the focus of their own game.

    Just when I think my mind is made up about you, you post something that causes me to question everything.

    These past few pages of discussion sure are weird from the perspective of someone who hasn't played final fantasy

    It doesn't mention chapters - will it still be split in 3(?) parts released consecutively?
