I can't wait for the day that fans stop buying a lot of their crap and they lose a ton of money to the point where they are thinking, "Man...we REALLY fucked up at PSX. I think they actually wanted the remake and not the remaster."
Probably because you were just reading chat and forum posts.
I never believed a remake would happen purely because I don't think it's going to be profitable if developed the way fans want it to be, and also because I don't want one. However, on the livestream, the manner in which Hashimoto was presenting, the way they popped out the FF7 logo, talking about history and returns, I actually thought for a moment, in half-disbelief, "Are they actually doing it?!"
I think what caught a lot of people, perhaps even those who didn't want a remake or didn't think a remake would happen, is just that one moment where we wanted to believe. Of course, it sounds silly, but a lot of us are still fans because we still feel something great can happen.
It's so crazy to see others react the exact same way and knowing exactly what they felt at which point in time during those few minutes
I still can't believe this happened. Man, if this is all an elaborate prank and they reveal the real deal at E3, then I'm really impressed and they have all my respect, haha.
Funny thing is, I've actually never been waiting for FFVIIR and the PS3 tech demo was no big deal for me back then, even though the original is my most favorite game of all-time next to OoT. Only when I read Verendus' posts last year I got hyped suddenly because it sounded so tangible. I'm still more interested in the spectacle itself, rather than the eventual remake. I still love the original version and will continue to play that every once in a while.
The remake is done for me now. Won't be waiting for it anymore.
I'm just looking forward to FFXV, which looks and sounds very exciting and refreshing.
PS: I really want to know what Verendus has to say to this embarrassing announcement. Is this the remake he said was years in the making/planning?
