    I'm the same height as Barret and yeah, I do often feel I could just scoop people up with my truck-sized hand.

    In other news, the upcoming port of the original FFVII is getting a re-translation.

    I figured as much; the port is essentially to get people (new and old) excited about the remake. It's also good news for anyone who wants to stick to the original game, whether they're uninterested or disappointed in the Remake. In my case, that means I now have two FFVII releases to look forward to.

    For a look at what a properly translated FFVII might look like, check this out:

    By the way, since we were talking about brother/sister relationships in JRPGs, it should be interesting to note that World of Final Fantasy's protagonists are siblings:



    I'm reasonably confident they won't make the relationship gross.

    I've always viewed Don Corneo as a joke character.

    Not as in, "Haha, he's a funny" joke character.

    But as in, "This guy is a small time piece of shit and we are going to kick his ass to the goddamn moon" kind of joke character.

    I never saw anything that Don did or said as any kind of legit threat to your party.

    This is an actual question.

    Do you mean Tifa and Aerith? Because I don't remember him doing that to anyone else other than his intro scene that shows him as a piece of shit that your party is going to wreck.

    But as for those two.

    Tifa, "I literally broke out by myself because these dudes are PUNKS" Tifa?

    Aerith, "I'm part GOD and can commune directly with the lifestream" Aerith?

    Don Corneo is a piece of shit, and would be terrifying in any normal circumstance.

    But there was absolutly, 100%, ZERO chance that Don Corneo could act on ANY of his threats, in universe, to those characters, because they would both kick the shit out of them, and only maintained cover so that they could evacuate his mansion and free his hostages....

    Where there hostages? I vaugly remember that being the excuse of why you just didn't walk into his mansion and stomp his shit in.

    There were not.

    They snuck in because they figured Corneo would have some kind of escape route.

    Which he did, he just ended up dropping them down it instead.

    I....I have that dvd.

    No, I mean, I understand he's a horrible character and a horrible villian. I'm not saying he wasn't an attempted rapist.

    Hell I'm 99% sure he was an ACTUAL rapist.

    But he was a joke character, as in, he was not an "in world" threat to your party.

    The character's in play aren't deprived of their ability to act, they are not at his mercy. They are stalling for time for his inevitable beatdown, and everything he says drives forward the goal to make you, the player, want to relish the moment of kicking his teeth in.

    He's not portayed as a threat, he is portayed as someone who is RIGHTEOUSLY deserving a beatdown, and every moment he breaths is because you don't want to beat him into a bloody pulp JUST YET, yet every second he lives he just does MORE to make you want to kick his teeth in but NOT YET, NOT YEOKAY, MURDERDEATHHIM.

    I would have way WAY more of a problem with that whole sequence if it wasn't blatently obvious your party was the ones in control of the situation, not him. No one is drugged up and made weak in order to make him a "threatning" villian.

    He's a joke, a worthless piece of shit, is treated like a joke and a worthless piece of shit, and you kick his ass like the joke, and the worthless piece of shit that he is.

    It's true that Don Corneo is played up as more of a nuisance then an actual threat. And there is some satisfaction in having your main female characters confident and powerful enough to not feel even remotely threatened by his advances. I mentioned before how that led to one of my favorite Tifa moments.

    But as far as Yuffie goes, she is tied up against her will with no way to break free, while Corneo eagerly anticipates what he's going to do with her. Again, the context of the game plays it up to be comical, in that "she's not really in danger" sort of sense.

    You were able to kind of get away with it with the lego visuals and overall tone, but this simply cannot exist now. Not only is the political climate much more sensitive, the fact of the matter is that now you're going to use fully proportioned, semi-realistic HD models. It just can't work. It's a matter of "this looks too realistic now".

    Same with bits like Cloud rummaging through Tifa's drawers so he could pocket a pair of her panties. Original game? Kind of funny, because once more the cartoonish visual style played a hand in it.

    Now imagine that scene again but with this character model:

    sammemejias-imagelair-finalfantasy7-advent-children-cloudstrife+%281%29.png

    Not as funny now. Kind of incredibly unnerving, in fact.

    Wait, in that scene where Cloud rummages through Tifa's dresser doesn't it then immediately cut back to the present with Tifa et al staring at Cloud and asking if he really did that? Because I could see that in HD with just every member of the party giving Cloud the stinkeye.

    Unless it includes a face-punch prompt (fingers still crossed) I prefer they not do it.

    They could do a rewind-in-time "Just kidding." bit (which is present in other areas of the flashback) but even then, ehhh.
