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

    Not the hero that we deserve, but the hero that we need

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

    This is funny to me because I’ve seen it argued that in the OG Tifa cared more about Aerith than Aerith cared about Tifa, because Tifa had more nice lines about her while Aerith didn't really acknowledge her as much. And it's funny how the LTD discourse seems to have shifted these days, while...

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

    Imho, the huge elephant in the room in an actual relationship between Cloud and Aerith is called Zack Fair. I think Aerith could get past it, maybe the remake even implies that she is starting to get past it, but I’m not so sure about Cloud. Especially considering the Compilation, I always...

    FF7R Japanese Script

    Oh sorry, I read it wrong! :P

    FF7R Japanese Script

    I don't know if this can help you because it's not really a script and it's not very easy to navigate (also, somehow it says it's not safe now… I used it extensively last year with no problems) – but here's a site that should have all the text, including non-dialogue, alongside the English...

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

    I'm not sure they would go there but it'd be fun! Actually, I'm curious about all these people's dead parents, but this comment reminded me of how some people speculated that Vincent might have had some ties to Wutai because of a comment he made on Yuffie's weapon that never went anywhere. And...

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

    ^Same, I’m here for people’s insights on characters and character interactions. And the occasional shitposting of course Tifa: Hey Cloud, are you up for some… filter changing, and maybe you would like to come to my room? *wink wink nudge nudge *they actually really just change the filters* Me...

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

    At the end of the day, there is no such a thing as a perfect translation: what you get is someone’s personal interpretation on someone else’s work, which means the end result is inherently flawed because 1) people are always different and 2) languages and cultures never perfectly overlap, not...

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

    I got curious about the Italian translation since people mentioned it, and apparently Aerith doesn't say "You can't fall in love with me", but "We can't fall in love (with each other). It'd be pointless". The dialogues are generally much more synthetic and condensed, too, probably because it's...

    [Tie-Breaker] 7 Best Moments From [Insert Character] In VII Remake

    Argh, I missed the first part! Anyway, here are my votes: TIE-BREAKER SCENARIO #1 - CLOUD > (B) I’m sorry about the Wedge line because it was great, but I had no idea what I was getting when I picked the expensive hand-massage and let me just say, it was money well spent TIE-BREAKER SCENARIO...

    Favorite FFVII Fanart

    I remember finding this doujinshi with Yuffie once. I thought it was going to be one of the sweet ones because the art style was very cute… Unfortunately it was not one of the sweet ones. And Jenova, Aerith and a telephone cord were somehow involved. :closedmonster:

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

    When I first saw AC and I read the novels I was no older than 15/16, I think, and I was… very harsh on Cloud too. I didn’t understand why he’d act like that, and especially why he wouldn’t even try to explain to Tifa what was going on. Then again, I thought that I could rationalize my way...

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

    And even if he wanted to, it's not like he actually gets to choose, at least in the OG (doesn't being "options" for him to choose from diminish their characters more?). By the time he can even make that decision, it's too late anyway. Plus, half the stuff that gets discussed to death in these...

    (Tagged Remake Spoilers) OG Frustration Thread/Double Standards

    Yes, I guess what I’d like is a more nuanced depiction of Cid and Shera's relationship in general, since they're implied to get married eventually, and they live together (I think?)… Are they even together in the OG? I'd also like it if we could see Cid acknowledging Shera for her intelligence...

    (Tagged Remake Spoilers) OG Frustration Thread/Double Standards

    - Character interactions that don't include Cloud are very limited in the OG (I'm mostly talking about the main gang here). The range of this cast is huge though, and there's plenty of room for meaningful expansion. I also feel like the Compilation failed to deliver on this ("didn’t even try"...

    Significant Differences Between English and Japanese

    Yes, that's why it's usually cheaper. If they wanted to find translators from Japanese to FIGS languages, for example, I can assure you they wouldn't have to look very far, but they would probably have to be willing to pay more for their services.

    Significant Differences Between English and Japanese

    I had the impression that they were all done from Japanese, which to me is yet another sign of the great importance and focus on quality from SE when they localize their main games now.

    Significant Differences Between English and Japanese

    So, slightly unrelated, but as I said a few times I’ve been working in videogame localization for two years now. Last year I worked on my first Japanese game; I do not know Japanese, our source text was the English translation, though there was a guy in our team who knew Japanese, which helped...

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

    While I love to pieces everything that they’ve done with Tifa and Aerith in Remake, I think the petty rivalry over Cloud in the OG is being a little overplayed when people discuss it today (not here, I mean in general). Sure, in the OG there were some juvenile comments here and there and the...

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

    Zerith also never did it for me and I don’t get what the fuss about Zack is, either. I mean, I do get it and I do like him, I just don't share the fascination for the character that half the fandom seems to have. But hey, we'll see… I guess you could argue that Aerith was probably not over Zack...
