Final Fantasy VIII Remake
We kick the show off with the Final Fantasy Remake! All good for this gamer.
The first showing is very much a feeling of the opening to the game as Aerith (Aeris) appears with her flowers and Cloud lands on the platform on the train.
The game promises over 2 Blu-Ray Discs of content overall for the game and that it will meet expectations. The first part focuses on Midgar and the move onto gameplay.
Real-time attacks are used on Square button, standard attacks charge ATB to activate Tactical Mode. This slow mo’s time to unleash command actions and abilities.
ATB for items, magic and cool moves, each character can be flicked during battle. Short cuts for actions can be mapped too to keep the pace up rather than slow down. It’s up to you.
Focus gauge is back to stagger enemies plus overdrives are on. Then we take on a classic Midgar fight: Scorpion Sentinel!
Got to say, while it’s been a long time coming. That was worth the wait!
