I gave up and started playing FFVIII on Steam. The thirst for nostalgia had parched me beyond tolerance. It's my first time playing it since the original PS1 release. The game holds a special place for me. I couldn't wait for the original to release and then get localized so I began teaching myself Japanese, intending to import it. I ended up waiting for the English version, but thinking about this game takes me way back to that sweet obsession. It's such a treat to experience again and put myself back in that wide-eyed mindset, getting blown away at every moment.
Also the port is fucking terrible. I had to mod it to high hell just to get it looking somewhat modern. Also had to map keyboard keys to my DS3 with a third party tool. There's no rumble. But after about a half day's work I got it looking and playing just wonderfully. It makes me really wish for a port this good that's fully supported by SE. And it also makes me worried for the IX port. But thankfully everything we've seen so far points to a more thorough effort.
