Junction this rumour to something that I am really, really keen to see come true. Final Fantasy 8 is without a doubt my favourite game in the entire franchise. It had great gameplay, story and visuals and it still happens to be plenty playable years after release. And it might be getting an upgrade for a Steam release.
A while back, Final Fantasy 8 was briefly added to the Steam registry before being yanked off quicker than a high school kid and his first skin mag. NeoGAFfer Grief.exe picked up on another Steam entry this week, noticing that territorial purchasing options for Final Fantasy 8 had been updated.
And as noted, when a publisher starts to tinker with that kind of information, a release is imminent. Square-Enix has already released one Playstation One era Final Fantasy this year, the much loved (COUGH “OVERRRATEED” COUGH) Final Fantasy 7, so an updated PC version of 8 sounds plausible.
I’ve bought that game twice already. Would I buy it a third time? You bet your junctioned Guardian Force ass that I would.

I watched a pop-fiction video of FFIX this morning. HOLY MOLY I WANT TO PLAY IT AGAIN SO BADLY! Nearly done with disc 3 on FFVIII (my first play through). I found it had a bit of a slow start, but once you figure out how to junction properly and stuff its pretty sweet!
VII will still be my fave though, it was my first FF experience 🙂
