HEY! HAPPY THANKSGIVING GUYS!! :D

Again I was talking with that friend I told you a time ago... yeah, the same guy wich dont like Zelda games for how Link looks (My favorite Link is toon link, the one of Oracle games and from Twilight princess)

Here is the link BTW.

And, well, the chat started pretty well, About the new SF4 and the new characthers and about the new released screens of FFXIII and there he started to complain about the news FF.

Acording to him:
"since FFVII the charas are more feminine , for example, Cloud: Blond, green/bluish eyes, thin and emo, do you know what he needs to be a real hero?MUSCLES, A MANLY BEARD OR MUSTACHES, ASSASSIN EYES, A MORE BIGGER SWORD, HE TRAVEL SO HIS CLOTHS NEEDS TO BE DIRTY, HE FIGHT, SO HIS CLOTHS MUST BE STAINED WITH BLOOD, POUCHES TO CARRY THE MATERIA AND KILL SEPHIROTH WHIT HIS OWN HANDS LIKE A MAN"

me: dude that looks like a nightmare to me. O_o
I love the work of Amano, Yoshida and of course Nomura, I think each one give the best for FF (my favorites: FFV-VI-VII-IX-X-tactics) But let me show you how could look your "manly cloud"
.................


I still preffer the Cloud of the Original FFVII, more than the one of the movie or his later apparitions :p
Hey Square-Enix guys!!! I still waiting for a remake, that game was good, Manly tears when Aeris... well, U now, dont want to spoil the game :p

Just 4 fun and part of "manly series"

Now thats how I envision Cloud. He seems to have become anorexic in the remake.

Oddly enough, the only thing that irks me in FFVII is the size of Cloud's sword.

All of guys get jealous when another man's sword is bigger than ours.

It's since a giant sword is impractical and looks silly.
Niiba's avatar
Well, to be fair it only looks impractical because we're used to see it how it would work for normal humans like us.
No normal human would be able to wield it effectively, but the whole point of the weapon is that its meant to be used by these genetically modified super soldiers (Captain America in steroids) which is what they are. It looks impractical, but for them, its not.

Well, in truth, even if one has superhuman strength to the point of somehow being able to lift and swing around a hunk of metal weighing at least 160lbs (if going by it being composed of some form of high carbon steel and factoring in how thick it is), you'd also have to take in factors like the inertia; when swinging around something so large and heavy, the momentum of the swing would send the wielder flying off their feet. Let alone that the whole point behind a blade is that it's thin enough that when sharpened it severs the seams of things like wood or flesh. Sure, a blade as thick as the buster sword's might cause plenty of surface damage, if not just crush every bone in a person's body due to its sheer mass, but it would be a very lousy cutter due to how wide the edge would be.

Let alone how much unnecessary strength the wielder would need to put into just lifting the thing, and how much further strength they'd need to keep the thing balanced during a swing and retaining the additional strength to do damage with said swing. If anything, someone with such potent strength would do better if using a significantly lighter sword, like the standard SOLDIER sword in Final Fantasy VII, since the more strength you can exert into the swing itself without needing to compensate for the mass would make it faster, and therefore deadlier.

And here I thought I'd get a funny reaction.

Shouldn't Cloud have "Tifa" tattooed on his arm, not Aerith?

Tifa was more of a friend while Aeris was his love interest.
Niiba's avatar
Ehhh...not really.
They both liked him romantically, but Aeris's love was based on how much Cloud reminded her of Zack.
But Tifa a friend? What? She was clearly heads-over-heels for Cloud since the beginning, and once Cloud regained his memories its revealed the whole reason he wanted to join SOLDIER was to impress her because he was in love with her too, even before she was. The last scene in the Highwind before going into the Crater has them "reafirm their feelings for each other" romantically.

To me, that's how I see it opinion wise

........Cue Aerith and Tifa having huge nosebleeds.

Not only did he kill Sephy, but he never lost his pipe. Should've given him a Monocle as well. O_=

Dude, have you heard, they're remaking FF7 twice, first they'll put the PC version onto the PS4 and smartphones, next they'll remake the game in glorious HD for the PS4, Xbox One, and maybe PC.
