One of my solely complaints concerning the unique launch of Final Fantasy VII Remake was the feel pop-in and peculiar, blurry texture of Cloud’s residence door within the Sector 7 slums. I’m happy to report that these points have been resolved within the PlayStation 5 model, although Cloud nonetheless refuses to shut the rattling door.
How many minutes had been wasted final 12 months as Final Fantasy VII Remake gamers waited for the door texture of Cloud’s residence to lastly render? The path to the run-down flophouse room was crammed with blurry indicators that solely sharpened once we received shut, so it made sense that perhaps that very same phenomenon was making the residence door appear like smeared shit. Alas, this was not the case. The textures had been simply in some way horrible, pulling us briefly out of our drunken Final Fantasy VII Remake stupor so we may stare in horror at ugly actuality.
What materials was this? Why was the underside half discolored? The solutions to those questions eluded me, till now. The door is wood with a protecting steel guard bolted to the underside, prone to shield it from the kicks of enormous, fashion-forward steel-toed boots.
The exterior of the newly-renovated/rendered door is even higher. It’s received a trio of triangular steel hinges, that very same kick guard, and even a clean title/quantity plate, in case proprietor Marle ever decides to rent an engraver.
Unfortunately, as former Kotaku writer Maddy Myers pointed out last year, Cloud nonetheless can not shut doorways. He can open all of them day lengthy, however the reverse motion eludes him.
We can take from Cloud’s continued incapability to shut doorways that the door texture shouldn’t be a consider his choice to depart them large open. Maybe it’s simply past his coaching. Or maybe he’s merely accepted the truth that because the doorways shut routinely as soon as almost out of view, there’s simply no level.
Either means, rejoice Final Fantasy VII Remake followers. Our lengthy door-based struggling has lastly (principally) come to an finish.
