    Unto this one day, this one moment in time, was I lacking in the true meaning of a heresy that has been commited upon us. I shall await (in true faith) upon a modification that will elevate Tifa in the eyes of the emperor.

    So I watched a video on this, and my take on it is that you charge up ATB quickly (like the opposite of a limit break) by hitting enemies, and when it's charged you get to stop time and do a faux, turn-based moment. Is that correct? I applaud them trying to appeal to both real time and TB fans. They should just make it full ATB for people that want that though. Assuming they haven't.

    Man my inner nerd goes full autist remembering that I played this game to death when I was around 16. Where else would you find a spell with like 5 minute cut scene in Knights of the Round materia...

    Wait, we get to see Aerith's death in full HD this time?

    This might sound autistic, but if I can't play this in Japanese with English subs - I don't think I'm gonna bother. I'm not trolling, I'm serious. I watch Japanese films all the time, and I don't even bother with them if they're dubbed in English. I wonder if Square Enix have thought about that? Surely I'm not the only one?.
    Am I?.

    I can understand that. I refused to play FF15 in ‘murican ‘cause it just sounded way too cheesy, like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or something. I’m sure they’ll have an option.

    It's pretty standard for Japanese games to offer an option for Japanese voice-overs and English subs these days, particularly on PC and from a developer like Square-Enix.

    I'd actually like British accents rather than American for the English dub. Aeris being all posho, Barret a diamond geezer, Red XIII being Scottish... would be fun!

    Hahaha! If I recall correctly, that’s one of the things that pissed me off about FF15, for the English dub they gave Ignis this posh British accent, but only him. Bugged the hell outta me.

    Teasing the cross-dressing scene but not showing it, of course.

    I've never been so shocked in my life. That's the most interesting Final Fantasy-related literally anything that I've seen in many years.

    One of the most interesting things about it is that it actually looks and sounds like a Final Fantasy game.

    Looks good to me.

    Can't wait for all the "Don Corneo is problematic" articles to coincidentally release in unison!

    So far as I know, GameJournoPros mailing list and Kyle Orland are still kicking. So, no doubt in my mind either.

    This game probably cost SE as much as a Hollywood blockbuster, and THAT is the quality of voice acting we get? Get your shit together Square, what in the 9 circles of Hell is this? It's like from a bad 90's cartoon.

    If Square pulls this off, all their past transgressions will be forgiven.

    Noticed this as well, but the biggest concern is that Nomura sucks as a game designer. He should stick to drawing.

    One of the cool aspects of this remake is that die hard ff7 fans will eventually realise how ridiculous its story actually is.

    Noticed that, too. Especially Barret. Every line from him is cringeworthy. If it's going to be hammy then they should just go all-in and get Mr. T.
