A Squall of Expectations UPDATE With Screens
Final Fantasy VIII, possibly the most polarising (and my personal favourite) entry in the Final Fantasy series has been officially announced for the PC. Which is a little odd for a fourteen year old game, so allow me to elucidate further. It seems this may be a more intricate affair than last year's re-release of Final Fantasy VII, as it appears Square Enix are planning to make some improvements with this version. Specifically the introduction of hi-res textures and, possibly, more content than its console counterpart.
I expect the new content will not be quite so new personally and postulate, rather, that it will contain the sub adventure that many people still think didn't even exist. A Pocketstation (anyone remember that?) adventure called Odakake Chocobo, which, when completed, unlocked an extra Guardian Force in the main game. Regardless, the certain fact is that the game is coming to the PC, properly this time. And it simply cannot happen soon enough as far as I am concerned.
