Interesting that they’re going with the Zodiac Job System edition. I have the fan translation already - can I say that? - (along with a physical copy of the original), so unless the remake really goes mad with the models, textures etc. I’m not going to be missing out on too much, but either way I’ll happily buy this day one as and when it finally gets to Steam.
I note internet commenters are already saying “Oh, hopefully they can fix how broken it was”, “Oh, it’s pointless once you learn how to abuse gambits” etc. Would that be “broken” the same way FFX is “broken”, as in once you’ve got 99 of the biggest health potions you’ve basically won? Is that not “abusing” the mechanics? It amuses me - baffles me, too - how willfully blind people can be, as if the simple act of pressing buttons to get through the exact same menu choices over and over again is ALL THE GAEMPLAYS, and the one game that dares to say “You know what? This is sort of pointless, isn’t it, if a robot could do it better than you? Why don’t I let you build that robot?” blows their minds.
