    Something i realized is that the steam version of the original game, uses the same file for the save. Maybe the Mods are compatible

    I'm way more butthurt they didn't make it 16:9. i.e. you'll be playing it in a small square in the middle of your hdtv..

    I hope Square gets enough complaints that they eventually patch it.

    Why. Is the text. So awful?! Is it so difficult to just give us the old typeface and improve it a bit. This font looks fucking gross. It was also a problem in FF9 remastered. Luckily in FF 7 the font was the same iirc. At least on consoles.

    Whenever i think about those backgrounds in 4k on ps4 or xbox, the rope around my night gets tighter significantly, like seriously, emulating the original ps1 version and putting it to 4k res make less shitty looking backgrounds, congrats square, never pull that head out of your ass.......atleast the pc version will be decent

    I hate Squal's new look. I prefer the pixelated Picasso look better.

    Typical half assed Square-Enix cash grab.

    Why didn't Squaresoft backup the SGI models they used for the CG backgrounds of FF7/8/9, instead of deleting/overwriting them? Did they really never backup those models to a tape drive or something? Maybe they exist in a big junk pile of PC parts in Liberia or somewhere.... I hope someone asks this question to someone who worked at Squaresoft in the tech dept sometime.

    If ninostyle ever creates his awesome character models for ff8 too, then I guess we can just skip the remaster, since modded ff8 will be superior in every way

    If this was SEGA, the one who could have been working on the remaster were the modders.
