Now let's enjoy the Reunion

This is not a "general" conversation on Final Fantasy VII Remake.

Is a conversation about the game, game experiences, game opinions, advice, help, and unparalleled opinions, and stop.
Everything else, like sales, ideas, comparisons with other games, news conversations, free spoiler, or sequel discussions, are all Off-Topic conversations here.
To try to keep order in this conversation, I will clarify the basic points, and its rules.

1- in this conversation it is possible to speak freely about the opinions of the game, and only about the options of the game.

2- In this discussion you can give any kind of help and suggestion, in order to help and give advice to players in difficulty with the game.

3- images, videos, trailers can be posted (official only related to FFVII Remake 1), but you cannot freely post too spoiler images for the main plot.
(such as final Bosses, filmed sequences of chapter 16/17 / and 18 in particular)
And try to cover as much as possible any spoiler with the appropriate forum spoiler tag.


4- it is allowed to speak only of news concerning expressly and exclusively the videogame sector of Final Fantasy VII Remake (1).
[like DLC, patches, or free game updates]


In this conversation there is a ban on:

1- talk about things unrelated to the game, including news about the sequels, sales data, spoilers and spilere articles dedicated to the game from other sites.

2- prohibition from attacking, or denigrating, users' personal opinions related to the game.

3- complete and total prohibition to compare this game with other games, in order to avoid unnecessary and unpleasant Off-Topic.

4- total ban on posting material considered as Spoilers, such as the examples mentioned above, and it is forbidden to post any other Spoilers without first having used the Spoiler function of the site.

5- ban on creating conversations, here, about news unrelated to the game of Final Fantasy VII Remake (1).
Including news regarding sales data, news on the sequel, on spoilers, on hypotheses, etc.....


These are the rules for participating in this conversation.

Awesome OT - trying to stay away from spoilers and such til Friday!
Praise D.Final D.Final

fantastic work

keep checking my inbox to see that BB has shipped my copy. So stoked man. Probably biggest release of 2020 for me so far.

I tend to play games very slowly so 45 hours for most people could be 60 for me
Congrats for the OT!

I'm patiently waiting for my digital version to unlock.
Thanks :messenger_smiling_with_eyes:

Hype over 9999 :messenger_smiling_hearts:

I can't wait!! Nice OT! Keep going!

Is pre-load available already?
Yup :messenger_smiling_with_eyes:

LET'S GO BROTHERS! It is time for the bloody reunion. As Kadaj always envisaged and envisioned it!
Let's get this Reunion Hype-Train under way!


AS KADAJ WOULD SAY in FF7 Advent Children ->
母さんの力が必要なんだよ、リユニオンには、どうしても

僕のリユニオンをみせてあげるよ!






=============================================================================================================================================================

THE PSX 2015 event, somehow shows CyberConnect2's work on the game.

"CyberConnect2 was previously involved in developing Final Fantasy VII Remake with Square Enix, but left the project (citing regular mismanagement) to resume development of their own projects and more amicable collaborations. They were tasked with developing the Final Fantasy VII Remake, described in CyberConnect2's March 2015 Famitsu job advertisement as a photo-realistic role-playing game targeted at the international market being built using Unreal Engine 4 involving physically based rendering. As of May 2017, it has been confirmed that Square Enix has taken over the development of Final Fantasy VII Remake. "







Famitsu captured the Audience Reactions during the airing/screening of the PSX 2015 trailer




Mind you, the E3 2015 trailer was just a CGI promo created by Visual Works.

Always pronounced it as Mah-ko. You have to think about the Japanese language and how the alphabets there are pronounced like Ma, Ko, Ne, To, etc. Another example is a Japanese name called Mariko, which is pronounced as "Mah-Ree-Ko".

So yeah, always been Mah-ko!

Wonderful OT. It’s crazy to think that you can create such a thread when you look back to the late 90’s where posters, magazine ads, and pop up stands were all what were being used. Not to mention TV commercials.

From being amazed by the back of the CD case, to wondering if this was ever going to be out for PS3, everything lead up to this week.

How long until this thread becomes like the spoiler thread where people are actively seeking out those who enjoy this game and are throwing them abuse?

So much saltiness from some "fans".

In other news, I got as far as the title screen today, but I ejected that disc hella fast and am waiting to see if this day one patch comes out.

Great OT, thanks for doing this!

Can't wait to play this on Friday. Dude, the music and visuals of this game are just incredible. When the remake was announced back in 2015 I was concerned about how would the characters look like but they are just perfect

Really hope for the day one patch that fixes the Texture issues >< Other then that having a blast so far. I am at chapter 9 done all sidequests and have 12h on the clock. Its a bit on the easy side. Never died so far. (Normal mode) Already sad that is only around 40h to complete it with side quests.

Who else was actually happy when Jessie died? She was the most irritating cringe inducing character I've seen in a long time.

I've nearly finished it, just tying up some loose ends and chasing some trophies.
