They should have trolled all the fans by having the tech demo for the new graphics be the laughing scene.

They redo the voicework or give me an option to cop out into the japanese dub, or i'm not buying squat (imlying one purchaser makes a real difference in the square fiscal plan)

Seriously, the context is that they're miserable and trying to force themselves to laugh to try and feel better. They laugh normally immediately after.

There are so many examples of genuinely bad voice acting in the game, I don't understand why this scene gets picked on.

I have to agree, people rag on that scene and use it as the prime example of the quality of the games voice acting, when Tidus and Yuna laugh normally, it sounds natural, that scene was intentional, I'm pretty tired of people ragging on the scene despite it making complete sense in context and leading to a funny reaction from Wakka!

Wakka: "We just thought you guys might have gone crazy"

Also, to the people wanting to play the game in the Japanese dub, the Japanese voices aren't much better, in fact, the laughing scene (as you kindly put in above) is even more awkward and sounds like a crows mating call.

As for this HD re-release, it's a way to make a quick buck with minimal effort on Squares part, but (as already stated in this thread) remaking other Final Fantasy games like 7, 8 and 9 is not easy. I am actually quite excited to play FFX again and why not play the best looking version.

"Hurr durr everyone hates FFX, not a single person wants a remake, I'm going to whine over and over."

So many stupid posts here and yet all over this website it is listed by the majority as their top ranking FF game.

Seems to me there's plenty of people excited for a remake. I wonder if it will look any better on PS3 as opposed to the handheld version, all I noticed was some smoother edges and in all honesty it's not like the game looks awful on PS2 anyway, it has aged reasonably well.

ShadowKatt:
Okay...and?

Several points. First off, FFX looked FINE when it came out on the PS2. Quite honestly, it doesn't even look that much better in HD with the exception of some smoothed lines. You're trying to impress, and failing at it.

Secondly, you're remaking FFX and you're putting it on a handheld. Tell me, are you just going to start putting all your games on handhelds now? You've already abandoned the console with your Kingdom Hearts series to pump out a ton of cheap handheld titles, now you're going to do the same with Final Fantasy? I guess we'll see if you follow through to put it on the main console.

And thirdly, I can't believe they're still doing this. Instead of making a new game, they're making an HD version of one they've already made. And instead of making an HD remake of the one game all the fans are clamoring for, they picked one that NO one wanted remade. It's almost as if they are actively sabotaging their own company.

I agree on your first point. I don't see that much of a graphical improvement.

They are still making a PS3 version, the handheld version is mostly for the japanese audience, since portables are more popular there.

They are still making a "new" Final Fantasy, as in more sequels to Final Fantasy 13. The other FF titles have been delayed by the failure and remaking of FF 14.

Daystar Clarion:
Oh wow! An HD remake of Final Fantasy X? That's the best FF ever! - Nobody, ever.

It's like Squeenix don't even listen to people _

An FF7 remake is out of the question, but 10 is fine?

It's like they don't like money.

To be fair, it's much easier to smooth out a few edges on FF Xs engine than to create an entirely new one for FF7 HD.

Eww, that's possibly definitely my least favorite Final Fantasy and that's saying something. Are they going to fix that dub? I can't imagine many people want to suffer through that laugh scene in HD.

Oh come on now, the laugh scene wasn't that bad. The original japanese only gets a break because hardly anyone watches it and it sounds more like a crow is laughing.

Anyway, OT, I do not see the point of this. FFX still looks okay and people are more interested in other titles, namely 7 and Kingdom Hearts 3.

And suddenly I realise that no matter what language we speak, forced and awkward will always be cringe worthy to watch and hear. Thank you for teaching me that FFX's infamous laughing scene will now be even worse in my memory.

Hold up, is this a Vita exclusive? Show the PS3 owners some love too.

I don't really get HD re-releases of PS2 games... PCSX2 can pull the same results for most parts.

Oh well, at least they're updating us on development:)

FOr all the people complaining it's X rather than VII, surely it's easier/quicker to make a HD remake of X, which needs a bit of touching up, rather than VII where essentially the entire game has to be redone from scratch. X is probably my favourite FF, I loved it, and i'll certainly be picking this up when it comes out.

From the article:
"Square Enix hopes that it will bring out wallets as well: FFX's HD remake, originally announced two years ago, will hit the PS3 and Vita in the near future"

It is coming for PS3, they just hope some people will be inspired to pick up a Vita because of its release.

I was thinking that exact same thing!

Whoops, my bad. I just skimmed through the article.

At least some devs are supporting the Vita.

Hi!

The japanese scene has some underlying tones of using the laughing scenes as a medium of forwarding repressing sorrow and putting on a bold front. The english one gets bashed quite a bit for the fact that the "now-i-laugh-in-the-face-of-total-despair" sounds almost EXACTLY the same way the rest of the game doews.

*spoil*

its almost a decade old innit? but still, some arrive late for parties. THe whole underlying theme of utter despair lurking right around the corner and good ol' cthulu-dick being an omnipresent threat as "the leveller of all" gets slightly hollowed out when the protagonist (or, ya know, not really since it's debatably Yunas story) sounds about emotionally involved as a turnip, on a bad day, in the rain, with bronchitis. They have a lot of decent VA in the game proper (guv'nor) and the fact that Tidus doesn't come across as the japanese (only one not to comprehend the vastness of the sacrifice necessitated) but rather as, i dunno the one they have (giddy manchild that sounds petulant and confused) makes for a rather glaring difference in the game as such.

And that scene is usually lifted out as the prime offender to figurehead the entire argument.

And that's ok, some games don't age well, VA wasn't "all that" back in th' days. But if you want AWFUL then go listen to the old dynasty warriors. or even Samurai warriors one, that was AWFUL.

If they let you skip the cutscenes then I would happily replay FFX. The battle system was fun and interesting, but trying to play it again, I decided that watching the cutscenes was not worth the gameplay. I mean, seriously, does every conversation need to be locked into a fixed camera angle and spoken aloud? LET ME SKIP THE STUPID, STUPID story and let me fight the boss, dammit!
