    Magic Booster

    When Magic Booster is used, the player’s inventory of the following spells is increased by 100:

    Cure, Cura, Curaga, Fire, Fira, Blizzard, Blizzara, Thunder, Thundara, Sleep, Blind, Silence, Berserk, Bio, Esuna, Aero, Confuse, Break, Zombie

    This feature can be used from the launcher.
    No Aura, SE pls disband.

    Where does it say that it is remastered? It looks just like the original.

    That's the PS1 version, try out the PC version which has vastly superior graphics, sound and comes with Chocobo World.

    slammed with xmas gifts, so broke right now.. not keen to spend money for this just yet lol, especially when I have heaps of other games to finish

    Also, apparently the music is terrible, still using midis... they did the same thing for 7's re-release but changed the music after a few updates, hopefully they do the same for this.

    It's not Final Fantasy 9 but this is still in my top 5 and I've already purchased it on Steam despite owning the physical PS copy.

    Time for the nostalgia train.

    KEEN. Now we wait for it to come down in price. I still have my PS1 copy on the shelf

    Oh, and for them to patch out the stupid MIDI music with the brilliant PS1 score.

    FF8 is still my favourite FF, despite it's many many flaws. It was bad and broken in so many ways, but I still loved it to bits. Especially the first disc man. Best part of the game

    AWESOME! thanks for posting this. I wouldn't have seen it for ages otherwise.
    I love Final Fantasy VIII enough that Ive been jamming it on my phone for the past couple of weeks.

    also this (spoiler alert but super interesting read if you've finished the game)

    What I'm really waiting for is FF X

    I would be very surprised if we saw FF IX and X on PC as they never originally had a PC release where as VII and VIII did.

    It's more wishful thinking for the best game of the Series to be released alongside its fellow PS1 era games on Steam.

    Also I love that game to bits.
