    Trace of Two Pasts novel discussion

    Thanks for the translations and proofreading @odekopeko and @Eerie! Personally I felt that it's because Aerith's part is quite heavy on new characters (the children who bullied her, the Gainsborough connection with the sector gangs), and these characters are created solely for this novel with...

    SPOILERS LTD Remake — It's like New Coke except ... no, it's exactly like New Coke

    I guess no one is diminishing the love aspect of the story. Its just that it isn't called Cloud, Aerith and Tifa, the 7th Final Romantic Fantasy of Love and Longing for a reason. It's FF7, the story of corporate greed, life and loss, a weird parasitic alien and a hodgepodge gang of heroes with...

    Trace of Two Pasts novel discussion

    Mmm, I'd have to say yes...and no. The truly stunning, they absolutely, 100% know that they're knockouts. :D I've worked with a few in my line of work. (The kind that were scouted at 8 or 12, had careers in modelling till early twenties, then be head-turning enough to remain in front of the...

    Trace of Two Pasts novel discussion

    I wondered about that too because surely long term cyro-sleep and lack of use causes muscle atrophy and cellular damage? But I guess if Captain America could maintain his ripped bod after 70 years with techno-magic hoohaa, so can the both of them. :mon: I also have to say that this particular...

    Trace of Two Pasts novel discussion

    I'd argue that there are a tonne of ways to describe awkward attraction for an incredibly (perhaps intimidatingly so even) beautiful woman without having to directly reference her chest 😁 Side note, I follow a # called #menwritingwomen and once you see instances of cishet men describing...

    Trace of Two Pasts novel discussion

    I agree with this, I also do feel that it was common with the earlier FF games to not-subtly shove down the player's throat that THIS (LOVE INTEREST) CHARACTER IS BEAUTIFUL! In FF9, there is constant NPC chatter that "her highness is the most beautiful", "she is the most beautiful princess in...

    Trace of Two Pasts novel discussion

    Was it the hitting on Cloud? I always thought it was clear she had no real interest in him - he was an awkward manchild that she enjoyed teasing. Everything she does to him in the game screams HAHA JUST JOKINGGG, and I do kinda like how this characterization carried over into the novel. Like, I...

    Faith v. 3.0 (Cloti Club)

    What cracks me up is the item shop guy's face and a comment below saying it's the only way someone as stingy as Cloud will part with his money lol

    Super Smash Bros.

    Kirby can't hold the keyblade because the keyblade has a Mickey logo on it and Kirby isn't a Disney property :P The fact that it could even appear in the promo itself was probably a tiny tiny tiny loophole (which was well taken advantage of, if really the case!) in which if the keyblade (and...

    SPOILERS LTD Remake — It's like New Coke except ... no, it's exactly like New Coke

    Isn't "A Tower a Promise" an adaptation from the OG song "Dear to the Heart?". The repeating motif is at 0.43 I guess it's quite charming if you think that "Dear to the Heart" can be contextualized to refer to both the promise and Claudia both being dear to Cloud, but in the OG, I always...

    SPOILERS LTD Remake — It's like New Coke except ... no, it's exactly like New Coke

    Funny, I was just thinking about this. Back when I had to manage soc med promoting a franchise of one of those model competition TV shows, (the kind that a bunch of model-wannabes compete against one another to win a contract),...the kind of internet savagery perpetuated by young, teenage girls...

    SPOILERS LTD Remake — It's like New Coke except ... no, it's exactly like New Coke

    Yep. After coming back to the internet specifically for ToTP translations, I don't know when or how a simple "I prefer <THIS PAIRING> cos that's what I like in a romance" became so insufficient that it now has to be "Cloud shouldn't be with Tifa because of the toxicity of their relationship...

    The Official "How many parts?" Thread

    Yep. The other thing, which a lot of people also don't realize is that creative people, no matter how senior or decorated they are in the company, are generally not at all authorized to speak about business plans even if they know it at the tip of the fingers and were heavily involved. This is...

    The Official "How many parts?" Thread

    No no, I'm not saying they lied. I'm saying that at that time of the interview, there could be many things that were happening that resulted in them giving answers like that - using EC as an example. This was the actual quote, and it doesn't say "tinier incrementations" Clearly, what they...

    The Official "How many parts?" Thread

    They probably knew - but they're bound by confidentiality and can't put it in press and / or printed materials for reasons of not able to release certain info to the public yet. Perhaps during the interview for the Ultimania (I assume this is the original Japanese FF7 Remake Ultimania released...

    Yep, precisely. Yep - which is why investor reports are super fun to practise crystal balling or tea leaf reading of future launches. But I've only been about as successful as Cait Sith in my predictions :P

    The Official "How many parts?" Thread

    Sorry in advance that this is going to be long. :mon: But...adding unplanned parts IS hard. And I worked for Disney (albeit a local office, not the team in Burbank) :D I could not even hire a Mickey or stormtrooper mascot for literally DISNEY in my own country because their strictness on...

    The Official "How many parts?" Thread

    I'm sure that they have internally the number of parts already worked out way back in like, 2015 or something. Every part that they add beyond the initial scope is going to be more challenging because they need funds, marketing, developer manpower, tech assets, talent and motion actor...

    The Official "How many parts?" Thread

    Oh, of course they'd never abandon their tentpoles, that's for sure. They won't NOT launch what they promised. But, in terms of cutting things I could see it could be more of cutting content originally planned because they have to rush for a deadline. Similar perhaps to that Tifa section where...

    The Official "How many parts?" Thread

    I can't remember where I watched it, but someone (Maximillian dood?) pointed out that Sonon's move set was similar to that of Cid, esp comparing the animations i.e. that move where Sonon throws Yuffie off from the spear is one that Cid does in Advent Children. They could have already started...
