Let's Play Final Fantasy VII... in HD?! Using cloudystrife's FFVII graphical overhaul mod for Steam (http://steamcommunity.com//sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=158899751), our PC edition of FF7 is now looking better than ever! So let's play Final Fantasy 7 and get all nostalgic as Cloud and the gang assemble to save the planet from Shinra and Sephiroth.


TTyi2tg3YiQ

In part 1 of Let's Play Final Fantasy 7 HD, Cloud bounces off a train and meets up with AVALANCHE: Biggs, Wedge, Jesse and the rather angry Barret as they plot to destroy the No 1 Midgar Reactor. After Shinra send both tentacle dogs and roboguards after them! These prove to be easy prey for Cloud and Barret, but will the Guard Scorpion allow them to escape after they plant their bomb...?

Even if you don't have time or whatever to watch videos, I'd still be grateful if you could answer a simple question for me!

Nice! I've always been curious about this mod. Its nice to see it in action. I've had FFVII on Steam downloaded for a long time. Ready to go for when I'm in the mood. This would probably make it an even more interesting venture

Nice, watching this. Haven't really seen the HD mod of the game :p

As far as who you should date, maybe Yuffie?

Psychotic

Thanks for watching and the support, guys! I appreciate it. :)

Yuffie eh? Interesting choice! On Twitter they were all going wild for Tifa!

Egami

Hehe, yeah Tifa is my favorite too but just felt like going against the current :)

That's a great graphics mod. More how FFVII should look like. #AdiosPopeyeArms

I also like the Cactuar sidebars. That would make an interesting theme for EoFF.

I'll throw in my vote for Tifa.

The way you pronounce "H" is like my grandmother. My cousin used to tease her about it all the time, trying to get her to say it. :lol:

I was pleasantly surprised by how nice this mod looks.

Dating Barret is the only real option.

Thanks for watching, folks. Hilariously nobody, and I mean nobody has suggested I date the flower girl.

Guard dog? I always thought of those as guard cats. Very big cats, with tentacles, but still cats.

Q1qDEdUlK7s

After beating the Guard Scorpion, Cloud and Barret have to escape the reactor before the bomb goes off. After bumping into Aerith the flower girl, Cloud train surfs and does a variety of gymnastics. Upon their return to Sector 7, Barret asks Cloud a very strange question. Tifa and Marlene await inside, but who does Barret mean...? ...Not Wedge, surely?

Egami
02-25-2015, 06:43 PM
Nice, another video :)
I think the modded character models look nice, even tho Barrett's looks a bit odd. So you didn't give the flower to Tifa...lost a couple dating points there! Decided on who you will take for the date already?

Going to have to add all the tallies up. There's a source in the Shinra building where you can get infinite dating points (positive or negative) for Tifa so you can really just do whatever you want to her until then. I think there's one for Yuffie in Cosmo Canyon too.

Shauna
02-25-2015, 07:09 PM
A "wee cheeky save"? That's our thing! :colbert:

Also the massive differences in quality between the player models and everyone else is a bit weird. I wonder if they could only do the high quality on those models. Like, Biggs and Wedge are less LEGO-y than they were, but they're not up to the same shine as Cloud and Barret. Although those ShinRa soldiers are looking pretty snazzy.

Gotta watch out for the creeps on the trains. Pretty Japan sentiment! x}

Why was that punk a cowboy.

Totes pronounced Teefa.

Psychotic
02-25-2015, 07:14 PM
Mine now :cool: Yeah it's weird the ones that were chosen for upscaling. So far, outside of playable characters and Shinra guards, Reno and Young Tifa also got the treatment. I think they were just cba with them in all honesty xD

Shauna

Indeed.

Jinx
02-26-2015, 01:23 PM
Holy shit the NPCs verses the main characters. So bad. xD ahahahaha I can't decide if this mod is good or just really, really terrible.

Also, date Yuffie since you seem to hate her.

Also also, yes, it's Teefa.

Also also also, yes, they changed it for "jes'" to "jus'".

Psychotic
02-26-2015, 02:01 PM
As you will see, they have also changed some of the greatest lines in video game history. :(

Loony BoB
02-26-2015, 02:06 PM
I think every time you say "Tiffa" you should have to take a drink. That should make for an entertaining LP. :D

Teefa is correct.

The Shaunas and I watched this LP when they were over at our place. I agree with Shauna, the variations on what they chose to make HD and what they did not was weirding me out. Especially when they clearly upscaled battle backgrounds without upscaling the actual world environments.

Jinx
02-26-2015, 02:28 PM
Cloud is super HD, Barret is kind of HD, the rest of Avalanche isn't HD at all.

So, I'm assuming instead of his "Mako eyes" people will know Cloud was in SOLDIER because he actually looks decent.

Psychotic
02-26-2015, 03:05 PM
Fine, as of Episode... 5? I will say Teefa xD And then rant at you all for it.

Also yeah. Like, you can clearly see AVALANCHE and NPCs and stuff have been upscaled, and they're bigger and more detailed than they used to be, which is nice, but then compared to the main characters they're not and it is a bit odd. With the locations I usually don't notice it that much, but Aerith's house is really, really weird though as you'll see.

It's also sad they replaced the red Shinra guys (officers?) with generic soldiers.

Aerith's Knight
02-26-2015, 07:53 PM
I could've sworn your voice was.. deeper? More manly? Did you throw your voice while playing Halo 3? Or was the xbox mic so crappy it did that?

Still, I'll watch ever now and then.

Also, forever and ever I will vote for Aerith date. Because someone should.

If you don't date Barret you deserve to date Steve in real life. :colbert:

Exploring the Sector 7 slums and not doing much else. Still, who needs to explore when you have classic lines like "Finger?! What the hell?" and "Look for something called 'secret'" anyway? Not Cloud and the gang!

I haven't watched the video yet, but I hope that you someday are able to find 'secret'.

Aerith's Knight
02-28-2015, 11:33 PM
Everytime you say "Tif-a", instead of "Tee-fa", it makes my skin crawl.

But it's alright, still entertaining. Still, the HD mod is kind of creepy when they zoom in. Although I remember the zoom in didn't really work on the polygon puppets either.

Psychotic
02-28-2015, 11:36 PM
Yes okay, I get the message about Tee-fa. xD I'll change from Episode 5 onwards (as I've already done 4), I super promise. Tee-fa still sounds like trash and y'all are wrong though. Just sayin'. :cool:

Oh, and let me know in advance how you want me to pronounce Yuffie while we're at it...!

Aerith's Knight
02-28-2015, 11:45 PM
For some reason I never really cared about how people pronounce Yuffie. I do it both ways, to be honest (that's what she said).

I've played through this game 4 times, and this is the first time I've seen Johnny before Costa Del Sol. Kind of sad really. I should play it again.

Is there actually a way to deal with that guy? I always thought it might be some quest, but I never could find medicine.

Scotty_ffgamer
03-01-2015, 09:34 PM
There is nothing you can do with that guy, though I'm certain there were rumors about things you could do back when I was always reading ridiculous rumors about VII. They do make it seem like you could do something there though. I know all of my offline friends that have played the game wasted a good chunk of time trying to find some way of helping him despite the fact you couldn't.

After pearls of wisdom from the train man, Cloud, Tifa and Barret board a train with the rest of AVALANCHE on their way to blow up the reactor... but disaster strikes - as always! - and a lockdown is triggered, all in the midst of an underwear bandit spree...

Last episode ever where I pronounce it Tiffa, enjoy it while it lasts.

Jinx
03-04-2015, 06:56 PM
I guess Shlup was right and Tifa's breasts are back-breaking after all.

Oh, hi. I'm just going to carry this bit of deadly waste around in my pocket.

Psychotic
03-04-2015, 07:13 PM
Jeez, I missed a good orthopedic underwear joke there, huh?

Also I intend to use the Deadly Waste in episode... hmm... I'm going to guess 15

Jinx
03-04-2015, 07:17 PM
I still think you should make the videos more like 20-30 minutes if you're only going to do it twice a week. ~15 just feels too short!

Psychotic
03-04-2015, 07:22 PM
I intend to record episode 7 (Psychotic working in advance yo) tonight or tomorrow and that's going to be a proper long un I reckon!

Jinx
03-04-2015, 07:24 PM
Oh, good! :) It can be difficult finding the right balance between too long and not long enough. Especially for games like this where the fighting is transitioning on separate screens.

I am not so bothered by the length of the episodes, they just feel like they're very suddenly cut off. xD Ah well.

The character models still weird me out, I will never get over this. Tifa's weird belly don't help.

Psychotic
03-04-2015, 11:26 PM
Well you guys I just did Wall Market and that's like a 40 minute episode. Is that cool, or...? :lol: I might move some material back an episode too.

Jinx
03-04-2015, 11:29 PM
40 minutes is fine! It's a little on the longer side, but it's better than 15 minute episodes. I think in general you should shoot for 30 minutes. As someone who has never done an LP, but watches them, 30 minutes is about as long as my interest holds out.

Psychotic
03-04-2015, 11:35 PM
The previous episode (6) was about 16 minutes so I might try to shove 5+ minutes from this one into that and then re-upload. 15-20 minutes is generally considered the sweet spot in the LP community but then I guess once people are involved in a long series like FF, longer ones are preferred. I'll aim for 20-30 in future.

Jinx
03-04-2015, 11:36 PM
Yeah, and that's part of it. This game is SOOOO LOOOONG. And it's not an action game. Where there is fighting, it's on a separate screen and it takes about five seconds to load. The rest of the game is exposition.

Sephex
03-04-2015, 11:41 PM
I would expect that RPGs would be longer videos. I say go for the longer cuts!

Psychotic
03-05-2015, 02:12 PM
Will do!

However, all this talk of length has distracted us from a very important issue. Underwear bandits. What. The. Fuck.

Right, so I'm here to support Paul and his case for "Ti-Fa"

How would you say Tiffany. Is it "Tee-fanny" or "Tif-fanny"

The answer is obvious.






Although Paul is still wrong and it's Teefa.

Cloud, Tifa and Barret plant their bomb but are stopped in their tracks by President Shinra himself and his latest toy, Airbuster. After a fierce battle, Cloud ends up taking a tumble and meeting the slum drunk and her flowers, Aerith. Unwelcome company in the form of the flower stomping Reno intervenes... I also have a breakdown at the start of the episode, Cloud style. Just 'cause.

You make an interesting point about Tidus/Tifa! It should be the same.

Well, alright then.. I'll forgive you because you also believe in the "HOARD EVERYTHING IN CASE YOU NEED IT" philosophy.

Cloud and Aerith escape the clutches of Reno of the Turks in the church, although Reno seems to think casually walking off constitutes fighting. Cloud does his best to help Aerith by helpfully pushing all of the wrong barrels down. Cloud and Aerith then make their way through Sector 5, where Aerith does not seem to think this guy are sick.

Those Hedgehog Pie look delicious.

They are definitely Tentacle Cats, and I've been meaning to correct you on that.

Okay, I understand they're poor and live in slums, but does that really mean that they should just throw garbage all about their houses?

ALSO, I THOUGHT THE CHURCH WAS THE ONLY PLACE FLOWERS GREW. WHAT THE HELL. WHERE IS THAT WATERFALL COMING FROM? HOW IS THERE SUN IF THE PIZZA IS BLOCKING IT?

Dat house interior, tho.

You can't run into the walls or anything else. Also, how stupid do you have to be to think the Turks came back TWICE? Also, who puts a rug on top of another rug?

God, that area! The wooden plank looks like it's attached to the top level of the part with the tube (hope I'm making sense) and that part fucked me up for a loooong time. Couldn't figure it out.

Also, video length was MUCH better this time!

Psychotic
03-11-2015, 10:46 PM
Yeah there's a really weird perspective at that wreckage area place that used to spin me out as a kid.

Also this is the one where I took 8 minutes (from Aerith's house!) from the next episode which was 39 minutes. JUST FOR YOU :aimkiss: They'll all be of a similar length or longer from now on. Well, the next few are anyway. Who knows what the future holds...!?

Scotty_ffgamer
03-12-2015, 05:35 AM
I haven't been able to keep up with this, but I have to say that Aerith is definitely the slum drunk. At least, that's what I say in every single play through. It's one of my favorite dialog choices in any game.

Aerith's Knight
03-12-2015, 06:34 PM
This is the first time I've seen the "being awful at Aerith dialogue". I'm not a fan. :colbert:

I demand you play the prequel after this and then you treat her as a lady. :doublecolbert:

Also, even in polygon form, the church size was already ridiculous.

Cloud and Aerith show up at Wall Market, learning that Tifa is at Don Corneo's manor. Only one thing for it! Cloud has to get a dress and cross-dress! Of course, that's not without a diversion at the Honeybee Inn, where Cloud is stripped naked by an army of muscle bound hunks led by the beautiful Mukki. Will Cloud join Mukki's Young Bubbys Club?

This is really the episode I've been most excited for. It's one of the most amusing parts of the game Thoughts as I watch it:

I never knew the shop was called Machine & Gun. I never noticed that ampersand until now.

I really like the word hooligan. I feel like it should be used more.

I love the guy who wants you to check out the vending machine. I always forget about that scene too. It's so odd.

Huh? Finger? What the hell?

I always feel terrible for the guy needing the bathroom.

Johnny!

Poo!

I should start introducing myself to people like that. "I'm Scott, a jack of all trades."

I don't think I'd ever noticed Cait Sith in there before!

Mukki! Cloud should have gone on the trip. I usually end up going with the other scene, even when I try to go for this one. I just forget which room gets which scene. (poik poik squish!)

This game really does have the best sound effects.

HD Girl Cloud seems to look a lot different than I remember in the original game. He wasn't a bunny girl in the original, right? It's possible that I'm mixing him up with the dress Aerith has.

Highly enjoyable episode!

I never knew the shop was called Machine & Gun. I never noticed that ampersand until now.It's one of those FFVII translations I always tried to make sense of as a kid and assumed it was right and I was wrong, off course!!


I really like the word hooligan. I feel like it should be used more.Go back in time to 1980's England!

I should start introducing myself to people like that. "I'm Scott, a jack of all trades."Honestly, what the fuck was Cloud thinking xD I guess that spiel worked on Aerith so he thought that he'd found the golden ticket to get a woman to drop her panties.


I don't think I'd ever noticed Cait Sith in there before!Still don't think it's ever explained what he was doing there!


Mukki! Cloud should have gone on the trip. I usually end up going with the other scene, even when I try to go for this one. I just forget which room gets which scene. (poik poik squish!)FFVII: YOUNG BUBBY'S CLUB. (thump thump pound!)


HD Girl Cloud seems to look a lot different than I remember in the original game. He wasn't a bunny girl in the original, right? It's possible that I'm mixing him up with the dress Aerith has.Nope xD It completely caught me by surprise! Totes spoilers for the next episode they did the same to Tifa too.


Highly enjoyable episode!Thank you! One of my favourite ever to make xD

Your decision to date Barrett suddenly becomes clear.

Psychotic
03-14-2015, 11:38 PM
You say "my" decision as if I didn't have a bunch of people on Twitter, YouTube and EoFF demanding I date Barret. I mean, I would've done anyway but that's not the point.

I don't think I've ever seen Cait Sith in that room before, either. It'll forever be a mystery what's going on through those keyholes.

Your reaction was the best when Big Bro punched that guy across the room. "ooooooooooooooo yeah" hahaha

Psychotic for best effeminate macho man impression 2015. You even worked in the word daddy when it wasn't there!

I like Aeris' pink coveralls.

There's no Texas either!

"I've had better dog food." Harsh.

Disinfectant will clean her bum hole and deodorant will keep her from smelling like shit.

Cloud dresses up as a bunny girl to impress the sleazy lothario Don Corneo. Will the Don choose Cloud over Aerith and Tifa? The trio are then dumped into the sewers and forced to fight the rather unhygenic Aps. Aerith takes up theft (and is utterly bobbins at it) and Cloud unsuccessfully attempts to fight ghosts in the train graveyard.

AVALANCHE launch a desperate defence of the Sector 7 pillar at great cost. Unfortunately Reno is in the way, and Cloud, Barret and Tifa are forced to swing to safety after they learn Aerith has been captured by the Shinra. Among the ruins and rubble, they decide to tell Aerith's mother the bad news, and she provides them with a lengthy and sad backstory.

Barret discovers what he terms the Golden Shiny Wire of Hope, and so the gang ascend this rusted piece of metal in an attempt to get to the Shinra HQ. Their climb is not finished there though, as they are forced to climb an ungodly amount of stairs and an exasperated Tifa says offensive things about the ever-complaining Barret.

Just watched the latest instalment. Trust me to pick the one with them spending the whole thing running up the stairs. You know, I'd totally forgotten about Teeeeeeeefa's "retard" line. I think it's because every playthrough, I run up, grab the elixir, run back down then kick some shit in the HQ.

The music was very reminiscent of FF9, I think it was just the general upbeat nature of the music. FF7's music tends not to be terribly upbeat, it's generally quite morose, I suppose I'd say. FF9 on the other hand, even its "sad" music is a little bit more uplifting.

I go from being impressed by your skills (only two fails at jumping on to that rope?! Impressive!) to feeling many disappointed feelings (wow at that hiding behind statues). So much stealth required! Too many, one might say. And that Hit. :facepalm:

More from the Shinra building! In which we get the Elemental Materia from Floor 62 by figuring out Mayor Domino's password puzzle, and we get all three item coupons (All Materia, Star Pendant and Four Slots) by strategically opening the right doors on Floor 63.

Following the creepy (but with a great hair texture) Hojo leads us to the captive Red XIII and JENOVA. Hojo then attempts to mate Red XIII with Aerith but unfortunately this proposed union never takes place.

This episode features my favourite line from Hojo. "Are you going to kill me? I don't think that you should." That's enough to make any would-be killer go home and rethink their existence.

Also, they must have some pretty badass moths in Shinra HQ.

A veritable river of blood and our cells mysteriously open? Why, let's arbitrarily split up! Barret stays behind to "clean up" (what is he even) and Red XIII scouts on ahead so we're left to wade through the crimson tides. It would seem Shinra has a new sheriff, with young Rufus Shinra taking the wheel and he's thrilled to meet us. And then a non stop boss battle train to the face with Hundred Gunner, Heli-Gunner and Rufus (Gunner?) himself all lining up to be knocked right back down again!

I tend to forget just how dark & "mature" this game is. Square really took a definitive turn when they made this game & it seemed to be the perfect time.

Mr Barret has a reputation to protect, don't you know? Like a scene from COPS, the gang piles into a battered old truck and makes a bid for freedom down the highway, the Shinra Corp's finest in hot pursuit. Cloud takes it upon himself to steer a motorbike while flailing a gigantic buster sword all about with a complete disregard for the Highway Code. And then to top it all off, Motorball awaits at the end. Will we ever make it to Kalm?

A flashback within the safety of Kalm's inn sees Cloud explain what the REAL crisis for the planet is: why does Tifa wear orthopedic underwear and is it possible to play Yuffie's theme on Tifa's piano?

He was kind of a hybrid of the two. Their arrival at Nibelheim and him actually being excited as well as having their photo taken was pure Zack. But then visiting his house and Tifa's house as well as rescuing Tifa and confronting Sephiroth (as you'll see) is all Cloud.

Sephiroth is an angry man. A very, very angry man. So much so that he decides to play with matches and burn Nibelheim to the ground. Cloud watches on in horror, especially as he sees Sephiroth walking through the fire and flames in a dramatic fashion. He's just showing off, really. Can Cloud rescue Tifa, stop Sephiroth and tell his story to his friends in a cohesive manner? Tall order, Mr Strife, tall order.

One more thing. Tifa was there for most of the stuff that happened in the flashback, so why didn't she call-out Cloud's BS when he pretty much replaced Zack w/ himself?

Psychotic
04-17-2015, 08:28 AM
She does kind of insist Cloud tells the story. But then she probably does have hazy memories of Cloud saving her in the reactor. And Cloud has detailed memories of everything that happened - what was said, the photo, the bridge collapsing, Tifa's letter etc. - so how the hell does he know all this if he wasn't telling the truth? She probably thinks her own memories are sort of messed up after being nearly killed by Sephiroth.

If you fancy a couple of beers though swing by the Brewdog near New Street station at 3pm tomorrow.

04-18-2015, 09:14 PM
so, cloud was himself @ this point? I know when he faced off Sephiroth in Jenova's room he was Cloud, but whatever happened to Zack?

Cloud is always himself, no matter if he is forced to change or not. No matter if you are drunk or not, it will still be you. As long as we do not speak in metaphors (as in "that is not you" by comparing normal behaviour with momentary behaviour or if you met one after 5 years and say "you are a different person than 5 years before" which is literally not possible but metaphorically because we mean the character and not the consciousness of a different individual) we can never be someone else than ourselves because no matter what "I become", it is still "me". Zack was merely the model used for Cloud's confabulation which made isolate and supress a part of his normal character while the rest remained on the surface and reformed his surface to a half-truth believing one. That is called "confabulation". Your brain does want to protect you from something so it forces itself (in this case it happened subconsciously with JENOVA S Cells) to take a part of your actual memory and replace it with another one to recreate a somehow fitting in Cloud's case still inconsistent) half-truth and you are convinced it happened.

Zack was also there at that time but Cloud's confabulation totally made use of what part of truth he needed (Sephiroth's power, how intrigued he was, that he was able to meet Tifa again, that Cloud's mother foreshadowed Aerith by telling him she wants him to have a girlfriend who is older than him and cares for him, et cetera) and mixed it with some things that did happen, just not from his own point of view. Zack was not needed for that story so he supressed him as well.


By the way, I also fought the Midgarsormr today and learned Beta:

Why would you even need to learn Beta at level 18/19? After that much grinding you can swat any opponent aside anyway.


The characters were in their 20s and because its cool. That is why I even leveled. I got level, gil, LIMIT Breaks, was able to defeat the Midgarsormr and get Beta. I do that often actually as I think it is one of the first normal challenges. Defeating the snake, I mean. Beta is a step further and an additional challenge. With Limits it is done quickly, of course.

Good job on the zolom. I still say you should have learned Beta... then never used it. That is the definition of bad ass.

I assume you aren't gonna do any grinding to level up on this playthrough?

EDIT: You missed the Megalixir in Kalm... terrible.

It's out of reach when you first see it but if you repeatedly try to get it Cloud eventually kicks the cabinet and it falls down.

You're right though, megalixirs are far to precious to actually use at any point in the game. You just wonder to yourself whilst watching the closing credits... "I probably could have used one of those 20 megalixirs"

Only during the final final fight with Sephiroth might you use those. Of course, then you just Mime, W-summon, Knights of the round table and you won't need it.

For reasons best known only to myself, I decide to acquire the services of Yuffie Kisaragi for the party. Ugh, bloody materia thief. That's not before we pick our way through the treasure laden Mythril Mines encountering those bumbling Turks again. We also pay a flying visit to Fort Condor.

Who the fuck is Yoofie? Also, why is Barret wearing a string vest? He looks like Rab C Nesbitt.

Nice quick capture of Yuffie. Her fist pumps look weird in her new incarnation though. Much like Sephiroth's 'creeping past my girlfriend's Dad's bedroom' walk in the basement of the Shinra mansion.

What are everyone's predictions for number of attempts on Mr. Dolphin? I have confidence... I reckon you'll make it on the fourth jump.

Off to the sunny town of Junon, filled with people who hate the Shinra, kids who hate the Shinra, and giant fish skeletons that hate the Shinra. We meet one such hatemonger, Priscilla, who promptly gets eliminated by Bottomswell. After ye olde boss fight, we need to climb the electrical tower (because reasons) only Cloud can do it (because reasons) and we have to ride Mr Dolphin (because Mr Dolphin is a god damn badass). Hope you like failure!

Somebody count my dolphins, I'm too ashamed. :redface:

I think Fat Chocobo just appears randomly around 15% of the time. He is far superior to regular Chocomog though.

I love the sky behind the Highwind when you see it for the first time. It's like a smurfing Turner painting. It took a while to get to that point though... ten attempts? *shakes head*

I was laughing out loud at the Cloud March and accompanying song though. I was actually in tears laughing! :lol::cry:

What a master of CPR. Remind me to call you for help when I'm unconscious and in need of first aid.

Does everyone always refer to Shinra as THE Shinra? I just find that odd. xD

The CPR bit is stupid on every level.

Cloud has to give CPR but has no idea how to do it. The old man says "No problem. Come over here and I'll show you how to do it". Yeah, this seems like a good time for a bit of first aid training. Don't worry about the little girl who is not breathing and is minutes from death. DO IT YOURSELF, YOU OLD FART.

Aerith's Knight
04-27-2015, 02:26 PM
DO IT YOURSELF, YOU OLD FART.

As someone who's had CPR training many times, doing CPR is extremely tiring. I could expect an old guy to pass off the duty, since he might get a heart attack himself doing it.

This new translation feels all soulless.

I'm on Episode 14 now and just last episode we had the triple boss fights.

Before Cloud fights Rufus, Rufus said (in the video) that he and Cloud won't be "allies."

This is what he SHOULD say:

"I see. I guess this means we won't become friends."


This has just been the latest in annoying changes for me. It's just completely pointless and robs Rufus of his casual mocking tone that was the only reason to really like him.

Aerith will be fuming. You buy the Hardedge for Cloud and then immediately gain a (superior) Force Stealer for him for free. No wonder she gets brutally stabbed in the back with no decent weapon to defend herself. YOU'VE SENTENCED HER TO DEATH

Yeah, Christ that marching mini-game is just impossible. I don't think I've ever got more than 30% on there. I'm sure you get something decent for getting over 40-50% though I can't remember what it is.

The performance for Rufus though I'm pretty boss at (though it looked tough doing it on the HD mod, good job!) but I purposefully never get higher than 100. The Force Stealer is great but you can pick one up in Corel for 2200 gil when you get there. If you get between 60-90 on this mini-game, you get a HP Plus materia. You can't get hold of one of these until Cosmo Canyon and they set you back 8000 gil.

I've gotten that a few time, 46% and 48% are my best on the original playstation. You get a bunch of ethers.

I was always short on cash at this point, so I forwent buying cloud's sword and got Force stealer from the mini game. HP plus materia is pretty sweet though.

In recent playthroughs I get into loads of fights near Fort Condor. I kind of have this fixation that I need everyone's first level 3 limit break before heading to Junon. This being the case I already have plenty of Gil when I'm in Junon town.

Really glad you didn't do that on this playthrough Psy, there'd be no-one left watching.

The hardest thing for me with the Rufus performance is the lefts and rights. I'm always getting those two mixed up with each other. Finally overcame that in my last playthrough. I forgot how well I did, but I did get an item. I don't remember the item, either. I haven't played FFVII since last year.

The assorted members of the party do their best to pass as sailors but Barret really knocks it out of the park in his sexy outfit.
