Default Final Fantasy VII on the Famicom

http://cinnamonpirate.com/blog/507/

I played and completed Final Fantasy VII for the Famicom and recorded the experience in pictures here. It explains how the new weapon and Materia systems work on this pirate cart.

Might be of interest to anyone who wants to play FF7 without 4 hours of FMVs and 15-minute cast times.

The "Aeris death scene" animated gif was great.

This reminded me of my recent experience with FF12, with the most frustrating times being when a boss decided to cast something with a long charge time (Flare, for example) and the game would not let me cast a spell until it had finished, even when I was trying to cast Curaja or Arise, sometimes causing all three characters to be stuck charging a spell (and unable to be substituted) while some minions were still killing them.

This reached a particularly maddening point when Cuchulainn kept casting Malaise (5 second charge time, at least), preventing me from using any healing spells for long periods, even though there was a HP drain field killing all of my characters! For the record, Bubble Belts should be considered essential for that battle, and you should always have a character casting Curaja, because by the time you actually need it, it's too late.

That game did also get some quotes out of me, like "You want some? You want some? Well come and fucking get some!", "That's what you get, that's what you fucking get!", and "Is it my turn yet? It must be my turn soon. Is it my turn now? Do I ever get a turn in this fucking battle?". Most other quotes were just swearing, really.

That game is amazing (FF12). I find myself at it all the time now... i just picked it up last week too, finally after seeing it briefly over more than a year ago.

Ahh...good 'ol FFXII. Yeah, that game was the first game that I've EVER bought a strategy guide for. I mean, you can only get the best weapon if you don't open four unmarked treasure chests in the ENTIRE game. And don't get me started on Yiazmat. That battle took me at least 5 hours, if not more. And it also seemed that FFXII suffered from 90 second attack animations. For example, every time Vayne used a special attack? Took forever.

Very nice visuals, I am also quite the fan of Famicom. Its a marvel of 8-bit technology.

Shenzhen Nanjing Technology Co, Ltd ROMs, including Final Fantasy VII in the set are awesome. I found a lot of the current dumped ROMs by surfing Chinese sites.
