Since the game is now releasing so close to Easter, I’ll be in my hometown… which means I’ll be playing with my sisters. I have to say it’s kinda nice how that turned out, since I first played the game with them all those years ago and I have so many shared memories with them about this game.

EXCEPT NOW I’LL BE THE ONE PLAYING AND NOT MY BOSSY OLDER SISTER, HA

My only real problem is that my boyfriend is coming over on the following Tuesday, since I’ll be turning 30 exactly seven days after the Remake comes out (how poetic) and he would like to watch and play the game from the beginning… But I’m not sure I’d be able to finish it by then even if I rush it like crazy, lol

I'm not sure how I'm gonna do the whole FFVII remake thing. My roomie will let me borrow her PS4 if I buy the game, which is not a problem, but I've realized recently I have no native HDMI output device anymore for audio/video and haven't had the opportunity to think about it. I've had issues splitting audio and video on my PS3 with the adapters I had available - I tried splitting video over HDMI (through a VGA adapter) with audio over component (through a 3.5 adapter). I doubt those two interfaces were ever designed to be used concurrently.

I've got Bluetooth headphones, but compatibility is not guaranteed. And the PS4 still doesn't have a native 3.5 jack. I really don't feel like having to deal with getting non-native devices to work because it is so easy to fall down the adapter rabbit hole and end up with a bunch of crap that doesn't work. For example, I once bought a VGA/HDMI adapter that didn't work at all even though it was advertised as a true signal converter. New monitors are expensive, compatible headsets are expensive, the game is expensive...

EDIT: Waaaait a minute. It looks like the controller has an actual 3.5 jack and there aren't many complaints about it. That may be the thing that works. HDMI->VGA for video and native 3.5 plugged into the controller for audio.. What I'd really love is to be able to utilize this with my VGA projector instead, which I think could be quite possible.

My friend got me this FFVII Pepsi promotional cup for my birthday years ago:
View attachment 4773
I promised myself I wouldn't drink out of it until the remake came out, and I've been waiting like 4 years now. The drink is gonna be baha blast mountain dew because it's mako colored.
That is one hell of a release ritual. Mad props for getting the Pepsi promo cup, by the way. You have good friends lol. It looks great! Great condition, too.

I really don’t know what I’ll do the day of release...I mean, I’ve been doing another playthrough of PSX FF7 to hype myself up until then. Maybe I’ll make some art.
Otherwise, I’ll just buy the game, sit back, and relax. (For like seven hours in honor of FF7) Oh! I was learning the FF7 theme on piano, the emotional variant when everybody’s leaving Midgar. Maybe I’ll finish learning it and play it on my piano before I boot the game up.

Out of all the FF7 bullshit I own, that cup is my favorite.
Odysseus, my man! The drink is even Lifestream / Mako colored, that’s really following through.

That alone made my night, lol.
lol thanks! I've had this silly little plan in mind for like four years now, and I went out of my way to find a Mako-colored drink. I also saved one of the B u t t e r F i n g e r bars that I got for the DLC too because why not. I'm currently regretting all of the sugar and caffeine I've had today, I feel like I'm dying a little bit.

Time really flies by faster than I thought... Didn’t end up practicing piano, but I did finish the pre-Remake playthrough I started - just in time.

So, that’s got me amped up.
