Marking the 20th anniversary of the game’s original release, FINAL FANTASY VIII Remastered features newly rendered visuals that breathe life into the game’s characters like never before.

Yeah no way I'm going to sit around drawing magic again for 10 hours haha.

The PC version of FF8 (so I'm assuming this remaster will have it as well) has a simple "Fill Magic" cheat, which gives you like 60% of all the spells at 100 each for every party member. It's a very nice timesaver.

Also, since you can set the cursor to memory and run it at x4 speed, even the big spells you want only take a few minutes each to load up.

It's aggravating because I just replayed FF8 like four months ago, and they announced this a few weeks after I'd finished. Heh. On the flipside, I don't really see what's remastered about it, other than that they made high res character models, which causes them to stand out horribly from the backgrounds. And the PC version of FF8 already had upscaled character models in it anyway (not to this level, but still substantially better than the originals.)
