Stolen Pixels #201: Remakeville

To everyone asking for a FF7 remake: Be careful what you wish for.

Read Full Article

Nope, after last week's article and now this one, you're FAR more a jerk than us poor Spies. ;)

Keep it up.

Pretty funny comic. I'm not one of those people who desperately want a FF7 remake, but I can understand the appeal. Call me when they do a FF9 remake and I'll kiss your feet.

We were flooded with WoW clones over the past few years, and I expect we'll see similar lemming-like behavior in Zynga's wake.

I fear for my sanity in the upcoming years...

I'd love it if they remade FF7 for the PSP.

Currently all I got is the original one bought via PSN, but I lack the memory card to store it in my PSP, so if I want to play, I'll have to be connected via internet to my PS3.

Oh well, it could be worse.

The FF7 remake could be a zynga clo-

... Fuck. Joke aborted.

"Sephiroth likes this."
Hehe, loved that part.

I don't care about a remake because I never played the original. I'm sure I wouldn't like it as much if I played it for the first time now.

Is this meant to be a new generalised PRIATE avatar? I just wonder because I saw Furb's avatar is the same and it's almost like we're being invaded by an attack of crazy platinum hair. And if that's the case then it had better be from someone as awesome as Sephiroth. And that ain't Sephiroth...

Anywho, if FF7 ever went the way of Zynga, then I would probably sell all my games and live as a hermit in a cave just outside Jerusalam. What I mean by that is, great strip Shamus ;D

It's an in-joke for today only. And I think it's Jim Carrey's face pasted over Lady Gaga.

Shhh, we're supposed to keep it secret

Lovely weather, isn't it?

*whistles innocently*

What's scary is that I can see that happening :\

wouldnt that be like totally win tho? FF fans get a game with 7 at the end and they can stay trapped on FB all at the same time.

Fat Man Spoon:

If not by Squenix, then by some unknown indie developer who doesn't care about copyright.

Hell, this might even serve to inspire someone like that!

If it does happen, I say we blame Shamus.

Fat Man Spoon:

Well Square Enix don't grub that much money... I hope.

I've sadly only ever played X, so this is fairly irrelevant to me, TBH.
Comic still made me laugh.

I already blame him for getting my hopes up for a Broom in L4D2.

Well they'd certainly get their money back on that remake. Great as always Shamus.

Well I honestly don't care about a remake seeing as I don't really like FF but DAMN the fans want it.

I just want this to happen so I can giggle.

True, but they'd also encounter some angry, angry RPG fans.

Hehehe... I got a good laugh out of this XD

Zynga actually IS the lemming. Farmville is just a ripoff of Farmtown, which itself was a ripoff of MyFarm...which I'm not sure whether that ripped anything off or not.

Mafia Wars is a ripoff of another mafia game.

Fishville is a ripoff of another Aquarium game.

Zynga's secret to success is that they take other people's game ideas and deliver them with better artwork and use their other games as leverage to get you to play. Mafia Wars was their first big hit and they parlayed that into Farmville's success which lead to Fishville's success, etc...

That would only take care of obsessive FF7 fans. We'd still have FF6 neckbeards and FF8 Fans (also known as psychotics) running around, both of whom are much worse.

Don't forget Cafe World being a ripoff of Restaurant City. That one pissed me off.

I agree with all of you.

But... FF7 is on PSN... doesn't that mean you can play it on your PSP?

EDIT:

Also, a "Farmvilled" FFVII wouldn't really be a remake, it'd be a spin-off...

Well, that caused a giggle.

I do agree though, it's always a possibility in these crazy, crazy times.

As for FF7, I'm not begging for a remake, as I never played it, and I'm sort of annoyed by the whole remake thing in general.

The only remake I'd really want to see would be Unreal with fully modern and beautiful graphics, to replicated the sense of wonder I felt leaving the ship on the first level of that. It looked better back then than Crysis does now.

I never got to play Final Fantasy VII the first time round, so getting a remake or not doesn't really bother me.

I find it kind of hypocritical that the people that complain about the lack of creativity in the games industry and the importance of graphics are the same people who want an HD Final Fantasy remake.

Oh man that was good. Scary thing is I can see it happening.

But I doubt they'll make it for portables, what with the apparent piracy that costs companies $41 billion.

I still disagree about the remake, if only for the several months of squeeing and poring over every trailer or bit of promo material, then the endless kvetching whenever it comes out over whatever minutia SE screws up that doesn't accord with whatever vision of the game fanboys have. not to mention the complaining about every. single. change. the fanboys would be doing during the run up, as well as the people who would feel the need to complain about all the fanboy hype for the game, including at least one saying it's "overrated".

I've never played Final Fantasy 7, a remake may encourage me to play it.

Hehe.

Weird thing is I dont doubt Square-Enixs capability to accomplish this.

Jim Carrey, you diseased Gaga maniac!
Infecting everyone's avatar!!

Fuck it, I'm nuking you -.-

OT- If this happens..
Jim Carrey won't be the only one getting an ICBM up-the-butt.

but y would these fans care about a FF7 remake to begin with? oO

Oh, the horror. This would sell like metaphorical hotcakes.

A little piece of my already shrivelled soul just died
