    To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand FFVIII. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Squall’s nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike FFVIII truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Squall’s existential catchphrase "Whatever," which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Yoshinori Kitase’s genius wit unfolds itself in their playthroughs. What fools.. how I pity them.

    I'd prefer a new script over something constrained to a new interpretation if the same original Japanese script. I guess a new translation could be interesting though. Make it feel a little fresh.

    For those wondering...

    The Remaster will contain most of the cheat mode options from the Steam version and will also include the following:


    • Get All Items: Get all items apart from a select few


    • Get All Abilities: Learn all the abilities from all acquired G.F.


    • G.F. Level MAX: Max out the levels of all acquired G.F.


    • Gil MAX: Sets Gil to maximum limit


    • Magic MAX: Sets inventory of each acquired magic spell to maximum limit


    • Get All Limit Breaks: Learn all the Limit Breaks


    • Get All Cards: Get a max number of all cards other than rare cards


    Also, here are some comparison shots.

    These cheats are way too op to want to use because they would break the game (which is easily broken anyway, but at least let me do the work). Why don't they include some softer cheats that save time without immediately taking you to the end? Something like double or triple AP, double or triple stock when drawing would be nice.

    Maybe the game will actually be fun now though.

    The game was fun. I understand wanting to speed things up but jumping right to maxed out will suck the fun out of it. Imagine playing the first FF starting at max level. It'd be like that
