Personal Note: Square Enix better fix this shit natively for the inevitable psn release. Original sprites and please and no filters





Alternate Scenario (if anyone at SqEx actually made some effort):

Even with a mod, why would you want to support these awful cheap cash-in ports by buying it off Steam? Like, you're complaining that they release a broken port you're still going to buy it?

if i buy the steam version is it still unethical to download the SNES rom?

The steam version isn't even the same game as the snes version, with the redone sprites and all of the extras from the GBA version. Its like comparing SF2 turbo to SSF2. It'd be unethical as hell.

Why do you think square is releasing it on PSN?

Speculative obviously. based on the fact that the PSN release of FF7 happened after the Steam release

Yeah if they were going to be porting these anywhere else they'd have started by now.

Well unless you have their corporate offices wiretapped no one would really know either way

Not like you would know if they started or not anyway

Can someone take a screenshot of a windowed version of FF6 PC? I'm wondering if the game looks better at a smaller resolution.

This still looks bad. It's like, a very minimal improvement. There's no way I'd rather play this than the SNES version still.

Depends if you want something true to the original art. I don't find the original art repulsive


Yeah, those are horrible looking. I think it's the faces that look basically the same on the men and the women but they threw some character costumes on them. All those angry anime eyes.

I haven't seen a good looking screenshot yet.

You prefer the filtered version?

Disagree with the image macro in the OP, FF6 GBA was incredible. Good additions to the game overall.

Shit sound is a game where the music was masterful is a deal breaker. Everything else was fine though

Love the OG art

The original pixel art is perfected pixel craft, you won't find anything better

This looks like an improvement to me over what we have now

It's ugly as hell but it's not broken. Mechanically it's the definitive version of the game.

Look forward to seeing progress on this.


Hope they restore Invis/Doom as well (assuming steam version doesn't allow it just like the IOS version)

The port is not broken. It's the best version of the game but with uglier sprites, and even that is likely to change soon enough.

This is about being satisfied with the end result not making statements.

Disagree, it's close enough. Unless he needs to tell everyone he's emulating it, who cares.

If we're going to talk original art... I'll take Amano's over the chibi character art any day.




Oh no doubt but this is never going to happen. It's like SqEx wants to distance themselves from Amano if it's not logo illustrations

That's Lord Nomura for you(yes, he did the concept art for those designs):


Some of XV's designs are pretty in tune with the old concept art.

Yeah, with some of the designs in FFXIV, and the monsters in FFXV(Goblin and Naga), Square don't seem AS anal regarding Amano's art as they were in the 00s.
 
Good, I can't imagine playing this with the art in there now. Personally I think the GBA art is great too, even prefer it. But I never played it to finish on the SNES so there is that.
