GamingThread Final Fantasy VIII Remastered |OT| You're The Best Looking Remaster Here
Reason User warned: ‘lazy devs’ rhetoric
That's a bad argument. The new character models is the only real effort that's been put into this (again, I think they look amazing but the discrepancy between these and the lack of effort put into touching up the rest of the game is jarring). The backgrounds look worse than in the original steam release. Then there's the FPS issues, lack of rumble and analogue control. Square Enix had lost the source code for KH yet managed to create a lovely HD remaster using simple reverse engineering. The fact that they couldn't even be bothered to use AI upscaling, but decided an ugly blur filter was the way to go is baffling and honestly lazy. No one could possibly argue that this is as good as these backgrounds could ever look when not only the AI upscaled versions look significantly better but so does the untouched low res source material. Examples of actual effort being put into remastering games under similar circumstances include what Capcom did with RE0 and Onimusha.
