    Haaa, what an Irony. Thanks to the first original Playstation. Nintendo Switch got some real great games for the first time ever in it's short life. What a pain.

            FFVIII deserves also a remake, not a remaster.

                Since you're updating character models, how about giving a little love to the effects/sprites/particles?

                            My first thought was "This doesn't even look different."

                            Then I went back to look at the original character models. Yikes. I take it back. o_O

                                  This games soundtrack is ingrained into my soul, extremely excited for this. Glad it specifically says steam, only playing old titles at this point due 2 micro transactions and Epic deals. This will be the first new release I will buy in years.

                                          Remasters feel like a waste of money. At least update the textures and videos.


                                            Goddammit....I bought your "remastered" version of ff8 on steam like 2 years ago....

                                            And now its "remastered" again??!? If you have already bought ff8 on steam.....just download the roses and wine mod and do what this "remaster" basically does.....for free.

                                            I fucking love you Square....but I also cant spend money on a title I have bought over 5 times in the past 20 years everytime you throw something new into it.

                                                Remastered? It's still in fullscreen 4:3 format and not widescreen 16:9 format and looks the same as it did before just a little less pixelated. They need to completely remake the graphics same as Final Fantasy 7.

                                                  I agree, this "remaster" looks like ass. Was hoping for something on the level of FFX HD but nope...

                                                I grew up with this game instead so I never understood what all the FF7 hype was about. I've been meaning to play this again for quite some time now so this is pretty cool.

                                                    Edea is the best villain in all Final Fantasy history. There I said it.

                                                      If the ffVII remake does good and this remaster does good than there is maybe a chance we will get a ffVIII remake like ffVII.

                                                                    • Bynk333

What the fuck???? ff7 sucked major dick compared to 8. and they get a whole new face lift. FUCKING REMAKE THE GOD DAMN GRAPHICS AND VISUALS. WHICH you should of done for this version instead of 7. 7 already had a fuckin movie and got what we wanted. BUT HOLY TITS some nice ass animation would of made 8 the best final fantasy of all time.

                                                                    • ReaverDropper

Remake for ff7 is basically going under plastic surgery for a whole face lift. While ff8 is basically getting a remastered of an already HD remake. Which makes it look like ffx graphics for the ps2. Maybe some of us would like ps3 quality? Nothing to big to ask of, they have the team for it. They can spend 2 years or so upgrading environments and character sprites. The coding is already there.

                                                                    • Sephiroth Crescent

                                                                  • sanni andres
