Bums me out that I probably won’t be playing this at launch. :( 

Honestly, same.

I'm really excited for the new content and that Photo Mode, but with Rift Apart releasing the day after (seriously don't understand what they were thinking there) and me up to my neck in games these days anyways, it's not like I'm starving for it.

I'll probably save the new content and my Platinum run until further down the road. Got loads of other Final Fantasy games to play for the first time too, so there's that :laughing:

The trailer was fantastic. They seem to be leaning into the spin-off games a little more. Time to bring him back, S-E! 

Say what you might about Square Enix not being the smoothest-sailing ship out there, but they seriously know how to put together great trailers. I still watch the trailers for Remake every now and then, and feel like I watch the XVI trailer on almost a weekly basis! 

It's unfortunate a lot of the spinoff stuff goes over my head as I've not played them and the only other real alternative is to watch videos on them. Sucks there aren't easy ways to access some of them now, so hopefully Ever Crisis gets completed and comes out sooner rather than later, but with how they've talked about it, I imagine it'll probably finish up not too long before Part II is out :(

It will be a crazy week. This, Ratchet and Clank, E3 and the Euros.

So sad for you that you won't be able to enjoy at least three of those.
No PS5 and England will be eliminated early. :p

Even if we stay in the competition I still won’t enjoy it. We are awful to watch. :D

I know this is unlikely, but it would be interesting if the story developed that they actually needed Sephiroth, and maybe even Jenova's help to defeat an even greater threat by the end of FF7R...

Jumping though several hoops to get the PS5 free upgrade. My save file is uploaded to somewhere, to be downloaded into the PS5 version. Went searching through the online store to find the game download, not sure if the console should've just done that automatically when I put the disk in.

Whilst I was looking for the download, I noticed there was a free item pack on the store. Not sure if it's new, or just recently been made free.

Upgrading my disc version was nice and simple, I was just glad I still had the game installed on my PS4 otherwise I would have had to download the PS4 version, upload the save, upgrade to the PS5 version then download the save again.

Played through a bit on PS5, it's a nice upgrade. Loading times are literally non existent now. Visually it just looks sharper and feels smoother, and those random low res posters are now fixed.

Bought the Yuffie dlc so I’m just waiting for that to finish downloading then I’m gonna start the game. Really looking forward to playing it through again on PS5.

Definitely not like spider-man where I could stomach the slower FPS for the gorgeous 4k textures. FFVIIR feels so much smoother now in performance mode.

Left, right, up, down, left, right, up down..... left, right, up, left. damnit why did I press left instead of down. 

Up, down, left right, up, down, left, right..... up, down, left, down... damnit why did I press down instead of right.

Repeat countless times.

Finally beat the pull-up pro challenge yesterday, never want to do that minigame ever again. :blank:

Looks like we're getting a FFVII Remake concert in London in October. I'm definitely going to that one!

After multiple reschedules this is finally happening tomorrow. Really looking forward to it.

Might have to go carry on with my FFVIIR replay in a bit. That (and a lot of gaming actually) fell a bit to the side).

Hmmm if anyone would prefer to play on Steam, it might be worth holding out after all.

I've found a couple of Reddit threads which hint at a Steam release. One says that a "Steam Dev App" has been found for FF7R, and another says a config file references Steam in the game's PC files.

Both could just be Square Enix covering themselves, and this isn't exactly actual confirmation of a Steam version.

Seeing as how bad and expensive the Epic PC port is, it should be a no-brainer to wait. At least to see if Square Enix fixes the game. I wouldn't be surprised if Epic snagged a timed exclusive deal with a Steam release later on. I just hope the version releasing on Steam will be the definitive version. But that might be a longshot.

So Nomura is teasing news next month for VII's 25th anniversary...

I think we all know what this means: along with all of the additions from Intergrade and the base game, you also get a Sephiroth wig, as part of Final Fantasy VII Remake: Intermission, the first PS6 exclusive :p
