    We're beyond excited to play Final Fantasy 8 all over again... so much nostalgia! We hope you guys enjoyed the video - how many of you are intending to pick the game up on the 3rd Sept? (which is coincidentally Darryl's birthday, so thanks for the nice birthday present Square Enix!)

      I don't mind if there is no voice acting. I'm fine with that. But the deal-maker or breaker will be whether they were able to keep Faye Wong's "Eyes on Me."

      I would love to as it was my first final fantasy game but I am not buying a switch. Cuz I am broke AF. But if it was a remastered Chrono Cross. I'd sell my blood.

      The hell did they do to Squall's face? He is supposed to be a bishonen, but they made him look like a 12 year old.

      I need to know did they change siren and rynona from teen friendly to more a adult friendly game did they destroy what was a teenager game to a more mature rated game how could they possibly think that was right in any way shape or form 😔💙💔

    The amount of disdain in the Final Fantasy community for this remaster is truly depressing. Yes things don't look the same, but that doesn't you should completely write it off. This hate for the new character models is ridiculous.

      Picked this up the 1st. Finished it Sunday.
      So many memories mixed up in this game. The remaster looks good and played quite well on the PS4.

        The junction system was garbage so i'm glad we have all these mods now.
        I believe the original had a bug when you completed all the game card not displaying the title correctly . . .
        And those who complained about the superior soundtrack in FF X HD are crazy lol

          Square enix does NOT wipe their source codes, the US branch might after translation, but Japan has EVERYTHING archived, FFVIII(To Square Japan) wasnt profitable they tested the waters with steam but of all the FF's on steam it did the most poorly so they ignore it just like FFXIII.

              The fan-made images of Squall at 4:47. I can't stop laughing.

                What i hated the of ff8 was the long waiting time. Loading screens en slow pase. Junction system was 10+.

                  Playing 8 now.

                  To say I am hooked would be an understatement.

                  The feeling of the gsme is SOOOOOO GOOD!!

                        Squall in 1999 looks like a Old School Runescape character.

                            FFVIII was the worst FF8 until 13 and 15. Hated 8.

                                    Is there a petition for Squenix to discontinue their Dissidia models for Squall and Rinoa in future games? If there is none can we start one already?

                                          10:00 lol what? That would be like the most useful feature to avoid the awful grinding of magic that made this game my least liked FFVIII. I would've just wait until I found a mob that has one particular spell, draw a couple of them and then just boost it to 99. It would also make magic in the game actually usable.

                                            I was so excited when I heard about this....and then I found out it’s just Dissidia models that don’t match the cutscenes and cheats from the PC port and I was sorely disappointed . We get it Squenix, you don’t care about this game and that’s why you don’t give it the time of day. But why throw us this half assed garbage and call it a “remaster”? That’s not what this is. It’s laziness. I’d gladly wait a couple years for you to at least redo the backgrounds and make the models look like their cutscene counterparts. I’m so mad about this. My favorite game. Sigh.

                                              Ever since my childhood FF8 held a special place in my heart, and squall was my (albeit seriously flawed lol) role model when I was just a kid who had no Idea what was really going on In life. He helped me be strong and even chose my hair cut for my high school years. Now that I am 27 I cant help but always look back at the days of playing it on my PS7 as very fond memories. I would not be remotely the same right now If I had never played FF8, and Its still by far my favorite.

                                                    I remembered getting the official guide with this when I got it and I was loosing my shit trying to figure out how to get the benefits from Chocobo World only to find out it was only available in Japan.

                                                      I'm beyond hateful to not play this game again. If I could I'd probably enjoy it but I live to be put down into the dirt like a worm.

I even dug out my old walk through guides 😁 must say that the 3x option is brilliant when drawing magic...I also forgot how much I used to play triple triad as that is probably the best side game in any ff ever

I had just received a Playstation for Christmas and saw the game sitting on the shelf at Toys R Us. I was pretty naive to gaming at that age. My first system was a SNES and all I really had on that was Mario. The moment the first cutscene opened I was hooked. I had to pick up my jaw off the floor.

                                                                          but gameplay mods are mostly easy to port over (about half the enemy DATs got changed though, to suit new model/textures, like 3 enemies + bosses) ...

                                                                          finishing up work on Upscaling (AI) + hue/color adjusted FMVs + even now have a handful of FMVs from a rare square dvd (2000 era) giving us a better result then the 1440x960 they have included here... also we even have one switch fan, who is happily testing out ports of the mods for that platform too... (mp4 FMVs for Switch... instead of PC version's .AVI (VP8 Codec)
                                                                          oh and they left the OGG audio at 160 kbps... really guys? couldn't of given us 192-320? (sigh at Dotemu) .. also very easy to replace dotemu splashscreen with a custom trailer...

Wasted so much time with ff13 and sequels, Final Fantasy Died that day. Story made no sense, watch spoony ones review, and that's exactly what it is. What a waste of friggin time. REMAKE REMAKE REMAKE FF8 After FF7 AND THEN FF9

What I mean is, even after you complete the game, the towns and other areas stayed blocked off from entering. Is there any post game? To me that is the weak factor of the psone FFs and some of the older ones. I would have gotten to the post game for VI, had the app stayed playable. It just blacks out and closes out of the game. SE has been updating all other games on googleplay, but FFVI.
