The FF8 redpill is realising that triple triad is a shite timesink fairly dependant on rng, so you're better off spending those hours fishing for cards just going through the plot and levelling as it comes for the better refinery mats from higher level enemies
More so if you get tonberry king ASAP and start manually levelling enemies mid-battle with his ability

Nice move, I hate the look of 8 theres no design consistency and the story is all over the place

Might be wrong but I remember even changing the rules being rng unless you savescum, but I was getting more at the cards the opponent fields than anything. Playing blind you can play against an npc quite a few times not even knowing they have a character card purely because they use the comparatively shitty ones you've won however many times

Saying all this with minmaxing in mind as it usually comes up as the way to play FF8 correctly, as a minigame it's fine

The amount of people here who complain about the junction system being hard to understand (despite the game having a tutorial that spoonfeeds you on how it works) is baffling. Stocked magic can be used to increase your stats, some magic has better affinity with some stats than others, that's literally it. I can get not liking the system but I'm specifically talking about all the people who keep saying that they don't get it, somehow.
>>
>>431538243
I think a lot see the tutorial and jump right to needing 99 in everything right away, hence the draw mechanic complaints because that's all that's available at the time. Apparently looking at GF abilities is hard (despite it's own mandatory tutorial), and quite a few people are mongs who will literally just sit there in the same battle and draw 99 fires x the characters they have at the start for a temporary leg up rather than play a bit further and see what other options the game gives them. VIII's practically a sandbox when it comes to player control of the junction system/gf ability/level scaling dynamic and how it plays in battle but few give it more than a glance before complaining
>>
>no portable triple triad

>>431538243

Yeah. Even as someone who was clueless about 8 it was easy to figure out how things worked with a bit of experimenting to see what spells worked best for each stat.

The junction system wasn't hard to understand, it just sucked.

It discouraged actually using magic and made battles a slogfest with only standard attacks and summons which took forever.

Worst part is you can't even skip summons

I imagine FFVIII not coming to switch was less the mixed reception it got and more because Square Enix already ported 7, 9, 10, and 12 to recent consoles and could easily get whatever porting studio to quickly make a conversion.

If 8 ever gets a modern re-release on PS4 and PC, it will probably come to Switch and other consoles later.

double/triple an element weakness against an enemy and it'll always do a ton more damage than attack unless you've got a much higher tier spell attached to str, and even then you'd need a fair bit of it and at that point you'd be able to replenish spells through refining anyway. Nevermind aura spam bullshit being THE most casual way to break the game

No other way to say it lad, you've played it worng. Even if you wanted to spam attack you could have made it easier on yourself by going for mad rush on Ifrit, equipping it and just berserking/hasteing your party with a press of a button

Triple Triad boils down to a simple flowchart once you have two or three good cards. There's very little RNG involved other than who goes first which is actually detrimental to you.

Summons does good damage if you spam square and it's still better than wasting resources. The junction system actively discourages you from using magic

Don't even need fire for it. Water from the beach fish is better, and after ifrit I think you've either got Card or close to it with Quezacotl (assuming you went right for it) and with that there's no exp gain, just time between getting that and Card Mod. Card the fish, get the AP, refine into water magic, refine Zell's card and that's you for many hours strolling through the game
And I spoiler that because there are many ways to break FF8, and finding them alone is part of the charm in my opinion

Summons can do good damage for a single action, but that action takes you a lot of IRL time. Don't think of using magic as "wasting resources", you're expending them to do things efficiently. And you can get them back, it's fucking FF8, if you can't refine from drops or cards you can just find an enemy that has it to draw from
If they're too low level to drop the item or draw from? Get tonberry king and level them up 15 levels, game gives you all the options you need

VII got its Playstation port which had more proper controller support and the like. This is probably based on that.

VIII's PC port has a lot of the issues the original release did. The music is subpar, the world map textures get fucked if you enter a menu, the analog stick acts as eight directions and you can't tilt to walk, etc. There'd be some work before it was considered acceptable for consoles.

Yes, the Junction System is interesting and has some hilariously broken shit. Triple Triad is a fantastic card game. But there's so much that detracts from the good.

Literally wrong. You're not forced to do any drawing, even if you want good magic.

>>
>>431549682
FF8 was designed to be an RPG without grinding, where how you build your character is far more important than your level. At some point they introduced Draw and set a hard limit of 9 spells/recharge time under the notion that "nobody would be be stupid enough to draw 300 of each spell and then complain about the game being too easy", but here we are.
>>
>>431545031
>there are many ways to break FF8, and finding them alone is part of the charm in my opinion
man I remember I was towards the end of the game about 3 weeks after it was released and I realised with the right cards and monsters I could get the Lionheart sword before fighting Edea for the first time, but my friends didn't believe me so I invited them all over and showed them, and copied my save onto their memory cards
of course it took like 9 fucking hours to do it but it was totally worth it

>>431549894

Yeah, VII is more or less perfect on PC and the Playstation 4 port only adds a few features.

The VIII port has all the issues I mentioned, all of which were issues on the original PC release and they never bothered to go back and patch in the music like they did VII.
>>
>>431533521

I actually like VIII more than VII. For a long time VIII was my favorite. Then i groew up and realized IX and tactics where the better games... but i still have a soft spot for VIII.

It's about playing the right opponents, certain people have good cards and anyway you are guaranteed certain GF cards which if you refine give you ridiculous items even on Disc 1. Get the Brothers card? Everyone in your party now has 100 Quake magic for life and can basically max junction Attack, etc.

Because FVII falls apart at seams. Midgard is probably the most solid in terms of looks and pace. Then it's all over the place. The atmosphere jumps all over the place - tragedy and horror is interrupted by awkward comedy like meeting Hojo in Costa de Sol. When I replaced FFVII recently I've noticed that the pace is just uneven, the humour is inserted there in there at random but that's very akin to Japanese writing.

FFVIII's funny scene work within the context of the situation a lot - Laguna is just funny not because of lol randum but because he's a charming guy that fumbles in a charming way.

On top of that locations in FFVII are visually inconsistent. You have ultra high-tech town, then steampunk town, then high-tech town, then tribal town etc. The world is a mish-mash. FFVIII has a very solid lore that's rarely mentioned until you sit down and actually read it.

FF8 set that up with the background of there having been MULTIPLE global wars that have set back technology multiple times. Also, there was already some pretty fucking spiffy tech right from the start. The vehicles especially. Trains are low-tech as fuck though.

No, there were great reasons for the technological disparities in FF8, it had perfect internal consistency and actually had a world history that fleshed things out.

This is not a mistake in writing a game like this at all though. Besides just the themes it focuses on, a fantasy video game has to establish the world it takes place in regardless of the style and themes of the narrative. Part of that world will end up fitting the narrative, but parts of it won't and while they "clash" in the apparent theme, their inclusion as different parts of the world makes sense. A video game isn't experienced like a linear piece of fiction would be experienced.

IX is a nostalgiafest. You have tones of FFIV resonating through it all around. The rigid class system is a good indicator of how much it tried to appeal to nostalgiafags. As well as the "Prince and the boy-falling-out-of-favour" theme.

The world while enchanting is more of a hollow shell cause you're constantly rushed through locations without being able to go back to them at the later point in the game to appreciate them a little more.

It's wasted potential is what it is.

No, Zell's is ridiculous if you ignore the "good" moves and just loop the same two basic ones that lead into each other as fast as you can. You get more of a time limit the closer to death you are, so when you're getting like 8 seconds and doing an attack every .1something you're racking up damage other characters have no way of approaching with a single limit break

GFs. The game warns you that using GFs causes memory loss in the room you start the game in.

No real reason. Seifer is just a fucking retard. Look at the company he keeps.

because there were? i don't think there's any hard limit on the amount of sorceresses that are allowed to exist at any one time. also edea passes her sorc powers to rinoa so that's just a transferring of sorceress-ship

>why did they all forget
using GFs causes memory loss

ultimecia!Edea brainwashed him into being her thrall, plus he was still butthurt about the seed exam

ellone used her power to send your consciousness back into the past so that she can try and change history or something but it doesn't really work that way
also laguna isn't a random soldier, he's a pretty pivotal character in the events leading up to the game and he's also very strongly hinted to be squall's dad

Best part is you can see that minutes into the game because he's been the one taking the sorceress and the knight film out of the library.

You can find a village of them fairly early on, turns out they're not actual jabba the hutt monsters but some borderline isolationist species that mature into different things as they grow. Some turn into moombas, that one had strong ambition and so turned into a jew
the village is building a statue of laguna

No, it was just a trope that happened to play out in real life because both Squall and Seifer were total fucking chuunis and loved the shitty movie Laguna made. Adel had no knight, and presumably Ultimecia didn't either, though it's tough to tell with her.

You want to know some odd FF8 trivia (I had no fucking clue until I did it)
When Balamb is occupied on disc 2, there's an upset girl separated from her parents and that boy always running around wants to help. Once you talk to them he'll say something about going out, but if you go back to entry screen he sneaks out just to get caught and chased back in. If you talk to the guy that let you in though, he sneaks by and talks to the parent, talks for a bit and comes back in
Now you can talk to him to get snuck back out if you want to, and the girl has her dad's triple triad deck to play against you with (think it's got pandemona in it)

One thing I've never understood about FF8. How the hell did the rest of the party members get ahead of Squall on the train tracks?
>>
>>431560839
Yeah, I don't think that ever really gets explained. Maybe they catch a small transport from FH or something.
>>
>>431560520
Frickin hell. What I'd give for a modern Final Fantasy with all the density of the PS1-era games.

They weren't carrying another person on their backs?

But how'd they pass him without him noticing, is what I think he's asking. I just gotta assume they had a little speedboat or something.

>>431559986
Sorceresses don't have to have a knight, but if they don't they become twisted and cruel.
Adel didn't have one, and that's why she went mad (and became more man-like and monstrous in appearance).

I always assumed they did meet and Squall was just like "you guys go on ahead." so he could have a touching moment.That's what I think.

Ahhh! Very interesting! Does that go into how Edea & Cid are more or less seperated (Cid training SeeD far away) makes Edea crueler, at all? Or was that just all her?
Thanks! The knight/sorceress stuff was always what interested me the most, probs cause of the Laguna film gameplay part, that was fun lol

It didn't click right away, it was the dialogue leading up to him approaching the parents and seeing him get chased away every time I reset the screen that made me realise there was more to do
I started playing FF8 again earlier this year because I remembered really liking it but not quite why, so I was pretty thorough with talking to npcs and seeing how things fit until I couldn't load the game on retroarch anymore

I like this game's gameplay most of PS1 FFs. Don't really mind enemies scaling because that existed since the beginning. For WoW I bet it sucks even tho not played after scaling was implemented. Junction makes it so that elemental/status attack/defense can range fully from 0 to 100%, I hated it that in 9 example you are either vulnerable or completely immune to a status, it's just boring because can't customize elemental/status things as much in other games than 8. Would want to improve that feature a bit though maybe mods exist? and make it so that more than 4 spells can be junctioned to elemental/status defense, and more than 1 can be junctioned to attack, though with Pain can inflict 3 statuses.

>>431533521
The reason Squenix stopped moving FF8 is because they lost their Master copy, and went to Eidos who did a terrible port job of it to PC and asked for their master copy and Eidos laughed at them.

What became FFX

Which was also supposed to have an online component thanks to the PS2's capabilities, but that was scrapped from X and split between the online guide of IX and what later became XI

>>431569297
IX is full of garbage songs like "Your Warmth" that no one remembers while every single song in VIII is memorable. The single most obscure song I could find in VIII is this song plays on one screen in the entire game.
