So, this remaster gives you toggles to cheat?

Way to get the full experience!

I like cheats in games, and I miss them dearly, but...

Basically the cheats are there so you do not need to do any of the busy work, one of the game's failings. Not its only failings by any stretch, because FFVIII is terrible all around. But at least now, if someone wants to play through the worst Final Fantasy story ever written, its much easier to do so.

Uh oh. Looks like they censored the game in some pretty funny ways too.

8 was not one of my favs but I am not a hater. I like the cheats. It took it from never gonna buy to maybe if its super cheap someday.

I mostly want to play the card game and go through the story. I like the idea of skipping most of the grind if only to save time.

There's no real remastering here. Just new models on the main characters is all. Hopefully people will be able to mod in other better assets like they did with the old version of FF8 and especially FF7. The AI upscaling methods folks have been tinkering with are like a magic wand on 2D backgrounds. Cant wait to see what they put out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaEgc46FNWE

Where's the option to have Squall get murdered instantly upon starting the game and get replaced with a pile of inanimate lumber?
