I was homeschooled.


So, the washing machine warranty book then?

As many as it takes I imagine.

To what end I have no idea.

Catcher in the Rye.

Anything by Shakespeare even though they are plays.

Why the fuck did I have to endure Macbeth twice?

I have been playing the remake for about a month now, and I have become addicted to it. I tried playing the original about a year ago, but I wasn't able to make it past the first level.

 

Is the reason you don't like the remake because Cloud (a tough soldier guy) was forced into being dressed like a woman? Did that not happen in the original game?


Cloud cross dressing is definitely a part of the original game, and no it doesn't bother me.

Though it's funny that you bring up his character type because that's part of what turned me off.

Cloud and Aerith aren't quite right.

He's a big tough soldier but he's also sarcastic and a bit cocky.

Remake Cloud is more like himself from the movies, a broody quiet loner type.

Aerith in the original is cutesy, but also grew up a street kid and could handle herself.

Remake Aerith just kind of felt like a damsel in distress to me.

The remake has a lot of stuff that I liked, but too many things that felt too incorrect to ignore.

That's the risk with directly remaking a cult followed classic and trying to flip it on its own head.

Sometimes it flops.

The only original/remake pair that I've played is FF7.

It missed the mark so goddamn hard that I couldn't even finish the thing.

I got it for nothing on PS4 as one of their monthly freebies and thank fuck for that.
