Holy cow those re-arrangements of the classic soundtrack sure sound fine... Hopefully the chatter during combat ("not bad", "burn" and the like) can be disabled.

(And hopefully there'll be a Switch version down the line!)

Another Demo video if you want to check it out! Said it before, but I really like how the combat looks and I hope it holds up throughout the rest of the game. (And I hope it gets tough)

To everyone feeling let down by this remake, please lend me some of your time to read my request.
"FF7 is overrated: a Video Essay" by Reggy2278 on YouTube got taken down many years ago. Would anybody know where to source this video or have a copy of it? This to myself and my friends was the funniest ffvii critique of all time. It included references to fans eating ffvii content as if it were McDonald's, etc.

Have there been any examples of JRPGs which have allowed for banter of this variety to be disabled? I’d love it if that were an option as well; I’m just not sure if there’s any precedent for it.

I wouldn't know, sorry! - I hardly play any JRPGs nowadays. FF7 has me interested because of the original's pedigree and the (seemingly) more fluid combat compared to traditional turn-based RPGs. The in-combat chatter is hamming it up a bit too much though xD .

Go play one of the Xenoblade Chronicles games for a few hours. After that, the banter in this game will seem like nothing!

I actually really like the dialogue and banter in this so far though. You can really see Cloud and Barret's relationship start to develop throughout the bombing run.
