This one always ranked very low on my FF list, way too much bullshit MMO-style grinding for shit with a 0.082% drop rate in it to make it really fun, but the remasters have a X2 and X4 speed option, making the prospect of grinding at least slightly less odious.

The story is also pretty meh, and it has by far the worst main FF character of all time. (Apparently because some dipshit suits insisted that having four main characters wasn't going to "sell well", so they had to cram Vaan and whatsherface in in a matter of six weeks or so.)

But even so, sure, I'll pick this up for a tenner or so.

I stopped buying home consoles for over 10 yrs when this game came out. Looking forward to playing it on steam now! I had been considering playing through this with the pcsx2 emulator recently, but looks like I don't have to go that route anymore!

Good to see that they're supporting 60 FPS. Wish they'd do that with their other FF ports.

As long as it doesn't break when you got a 120hz or 144hz screen, because.. not like that would be a first ;p

FUCK YEAHHHHHHHH, one of the best FF games EVER.

FFXV was also great, and the PC port for that looks FANTABULOUS.

(Regarding SW:Battlefront II) Frostshite is a horrible piece of shit engine that makes games look artificial as if you were playing on a movie set instead of the actual location. -CJ_Parker

I'm not usually a JRPG guy at all but I played a lot of this back in the day on a roomate's Playstation and thought it was really fun. Open areas, tactical combat. I'll likely get this.

Ooh, nice. Not my favorite Final Fantasy but I never really liked how it looked in an emulator. The Remaster should be nice.
