    Yes, I feel the same.. But, they feel that there isn't a need to "redo it" when there hasn't been a FF game since then that has sold so much... Until they can make one a masterpiece then it'll be redone... It's stupid.. Versus is now up in the wind... And I was really looking forward to a fresh new game that felt like they were taking stuff from 8 and 7...

    I would love to replay this game. One of the best FF since 3.

    Minimum System Requirements:

    Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7 (32/64-bit)
    • 2GHz Processor or faster
    • 1GB RAM
    • DirectX 9-compatible graphic card

    to be honest this is good for a 1997 game to need atleast 1gb of ram but i was hoping for mininum reqs to be
    • 2GHz i5 Processor or faster
    • 2GB RAM
    • DirectX 11-compatible graphic card with 1GB vRAM

    Anytime that somebody put a FF7 disc in the PS2 and forgot about backwards-compatibility with the PS1, so just assumed it was a PS2 game? Just a guess.

    Sadly, there is absolutely zero enhancements made to the game, other than checkpoint saves. A full re-vamp of the game would sell billions of copies. Not sure why they aren't doing it then, considering there's only been one good title since FFVII in the franchise. They could use a boost.

    Anyone with a PS1 disc (emu for upscale) or the original FF7 PC (fan mods for upscale) already has a good idea of what this re-release looks like :) On the upside, it's only $9.99.

    We expect you to fully beat the game in the next day or so and write up a compare-and-contrast article between this re-release and the original release. You have lots of work to do, better get to it!

    Currently playing the game.. It is extremely nostalgic.. I <3 it..
    I am playing in fullscreen, 1920x1080 as well, on a 50" TV, so that's a win..
    I hear disabling linear filtering makes it look better, so I did that.
    Also original graphic mode makes it look uglier from what I hear, so turned that off.

    It is NOT a direct port.. If it was, you'd be stuck at something like 640x480 res, or w/e it was..
    So there have been some small tweaks.

    Idk if the mods for ff7 will work with this.. but I hope with the changes, it makes the game easier to mod, so people can take advantage of the newer options.

    I really wish they'd make an HD remake.. A totally remade HD game, with the same story..
    I would buy it for full price, so fast..
    But I am loving this anyway..
    :toast:

    Oops, PS1 I meant.
    I'm just in denial about how old I am I guess... :ohwell:

    FF7 caused me to be a hermit for a month.
    Never completed it though.
    Good times.

    Rumor suggested this would have some sort of always on DRM, is that the case? If so I'm not gonna drop anything on it, if not I'll be buying the f**k out of it.
