According to Maximillion Dood, there's apparently a lot more left to the flashback than the demo showed. I wonder if a certain bossfight from CC is reenacted.

I was wondering that myself. I think what we saw is complete from the scene in the truck up to the Nibelheim fire. But obviously it has to go all the way up to Cloud confronting Sephiroth in the reactor. There has to be some new developments in that section compared to the original game or SE would bother signing people to NDAs about that portion.

One theory I have is that Tifa will actually push back on Cloud about his version of the story and that will lead to some tension between them. It has always been a complaint from people that she didn’t really speak up about it in the original game.

Also, there’s a portrait of Lucrecia and Hojo on the second floor of the Shinra Manor. Love those little added details.

Also, I kind of wish the “walking through fire” scene had been a Visual Works scene. It looks great and I know changing the graphic style for that moment might have been jarring. But I would have appreciated it as a callback to the original moment when it transitions from the basic graphics to the CGI scene.

The demo will be getting an update to fix some of the graphical issues with performance mode and these will be applied to the full game as well.

Less than two weeks to go!

If you want to avoid spoilers, it is time to go dark. Leaked copies are out in the wild. The review embargo also gets lifted Thursday. It looks like most content creators won’t be getting the game until release day thankfully, but there will still likely be some leakers posting spoilers in YouTube thumbnails, etc.

Going to start a run through of the OG tomorrow for the 7 day count down!

I feel like Reunion would've been a better subtitle while Rebirth would be better for part 3.

I'm looking forward to playing it later in the year. I'm hoping the other Before Crisis turks pop up too. Same with the other members of Deepground.

Could Junon be any rockier? Seriously, the terrain is sooo rocky. Cloud just bobs up and down in most places.

Open world exploration is awesome. The map is way bigger than I expected! You could seriously lose yourself in the map for a few days without heading to objectives or doing side quests

Rebirth has a 93 Metacritic score with 114 reviews as of right now! That’s a significant jump from Remake’s 87!

If it doesn’t get a GOTY nomination, I’m gonna have some choice words for Geoff Keighley. Lol

So far 2024 appears to be a much lighter field than '23. They won't have many other options.

I was playing the demo and my boyfriend wondered why there are bus stops out in the middle of such a rocky and awful area.

I liked the little Junon area but I wish they went for the grasslands, something that visually looked a bit better than browns and dead grass.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the bus stops are abandoned and you're essentially reviving and/or repurposing them. That's what I think anyways.

I'M READY! I've replayed Remake, beat Reunion, beat INTERmission, and now finishing up FFXVI to pass the time until Rebirth.

Oh yeah that's the in-universe reason. But I'd hate to have gone on them when they were functional and have the bumpiest ride ever.
