    was thinking the other day about how original ff7 was developed in a couple of years and how the remake is probably gonna stretch well over a decade

    i remember running into folks a bit older than me who had the original game as like, a huge touchstone in their own history - i kinda wonder if/how that's gonna work out for the kids today with the game broken up into staggered releases

    well, given that two of the bigger cultural touchstones in media now are the MCU and Star Wars, who have had even longer runs of staggered releases...I think it'll be okay?
    i think 'franchises' are a little different, i'm thinking about like - does a story that comes out in three or four pieces over ten years really have the ability to stick for a generation the way the original did? That's a real long time, especially when you're younger.

    I guess at this point ff7 on its own could be basically be considered a series

    A different, more relevant example here is probably Kingdom Hearts, which has had three mainline titles over close to 20 years

    Star Trek Stellaris would be cool except I'm too stupid to play grand strategy games

    Sure, but KH3 was also the best selling game in the entire franchise. Final Fantasy 7 is a wildly popular game and clearly has already demonstrated a lot of staying power since its release. I think it's likely to continue to do well, especially if they keep a standard of quality up.

    they announced some sort of star trek grand strategy game but we don't know what it actually looks like yet, just a cinematic trailer letting you know It's Star Trek And There's A Few Factions

    https://youtu.be/A3cM3Rsh7lQ

    That Galaxy Class had both its primary hull impulse drive and the saucer section impulse drives on at the same time. Throw that game in the trash where it belongs.

    A lot of people often accuse the Devolver Directs of trying too hard.

    I do not think that's going to be a complaint leveled at them this year.

    I should finish my Hard run of FF7R. I got pretty far in it - I think up to the Rufus fight?

    I liked the fights in Hard mode a lot, I thought the "no items" restriction made me engage with the systems in some really fun and satisfying ways, and I felt continually rewarded for both systems mastery and knowledge of my enemies - good shit, exactly what I like in a hard mode. But I wish they'd put as much care into keeping the game fun outside the fights. Because when items don't matter, neither does exploration, and then it just feels like I'm sprinting through hallways until I get to the fun parts.

    But that's a minor complaint. That I played the game enough to go through it multiple times and even have that opinion is, in and of itself, a testament to how much I adore that fuckin' thing.

    The Devolver show this year was maybe the funniest one they’ve done, a number of good bits that landed well

    Also Bennett Foddy’s new game looks great

    If the P3 Reload leaks were all true, this is a remake of P3 and not Portable or FES, meaning no Female MC and no The Answer

    The idea of remaking P3 seems absurd to me

    Like, the game has an aesthetic that has aged well! All you’d really need to do is some quality of life stuff and bump up the resolution, maybe do some texture work or adjust things for widescreen support or what have you

    you know?

    not where I thought they were going with this

    but I'm all for it
    Tifa maybe being Jenova instead if just "girl that loves Cloud" sure is character development

    I kinda saw it more like Sephiroth going for a new route to mess with Cloud mentally. If I remember correctly, Tifa kept the whole 'it was Zack there, not Cloud' secret right up until the first go into the Crater. So he might be trying to play up that bit of distrust to fracture Cloud's relationship with her if not the rest of the group. Also, didn't the original game kinda gloss over the bit where Tifa's martial-arts master was the one who got Tifa out of town before the Shinra clean-up crew came in?

    who knows man, we're in full Mortal Kombat 1 territory at this point

    Though I still hope they end this game with
    Cloud sacrificing himself instead of Aerith, making Zack the new male lead and shaking up Sephiroth's plans and his confidence that's he's doing the right thing

    Persona 3 might still be my favorite Persona game but...I'm not sure it needs a remake? Especially if it doesn't do much new. They re-released the game in the last year and it looks fine.

    the P3P steam release actually looks like garbage because they just used shitty AI upscaling for all the backgrounds so i will happily take a full-on remake

    but it's gonna be a real missed opportunity if they don't make this some kind of definitive version with both femc and the answer

    I get why everyone loves the new Zelda games and how they’re different from regular games and such but man I feel like such a pod person cos when I play them they do nothing for me. I tried to beat breath of the wild like 5 times and never got more than halfway. There’s just something about them that bores me to tears even though I can objectively see the appeal.

    I feel like some sort of basic bitch oddity who just genuinely likes more traditional open world games than the new Zelda’s

    No, the Atlus thing to do would be to put out the remake without FeMC on all platforms, then in like 2 or 3 years put out a new version of the remake with FeMC and some new combat features for full price and only on PlayStation

    I saw a Youtube short recently where that kid was "owning a feminist" and it was just him asking her to name 10 books.

    Which makes no sense and when she did he smugly pointed out that "Game of Thrones" isn't the full title of "A Song of Ice and Fire" or whatever and then the video ended.

    And to me that just says that every anti-feminist podcast douchebro with too many heinous arm tattoos and a Monster Energy personality is just that 15 year old and that they're afraid of women but choose "fight" over "flight" to pretend like they're alpha males.
