    [No FF7 Story Spoilers Here]
    I love the remake and think it is a phenomenal recreation of the original. I do have a complaint and a theory about the battle system that relates to your discussion:

    Complaint: Attacks can be interrupted. This is fine, but does it also need to cost the ATB charge AND the MP of the move you were trying to perform? Bullshit.

    Theory: Considering Part 1 is so Materia-heavy in its gameplay, I predict Part 2 will implement a Gambit system to make it more tactics-based. With this, it may also give you the ability to have four characters in your party as well, but now i'm just being a dreamer.

    Gonna be honest, in my state, even though there is a shelter-in-place order in place, nothing has changed. There might have been at first a reduction in traffic on the road, but any and all shops are pretty much open (including my place of work, which has about forty to sixty employees on each shift and the parking lot is just as full as it was before.) Movie theaters are closed though, so I miss that.

    So the only restrictions to speak of are those you take personally and mentally. Whenever I get a hankering for some food from a restaurant or to go out shopping, I have to remind myself, even though there's a low chance of me getting the virus, I'd rather not risk it, especially since there are more than enough chances for me to spread it to my family. Mainly, I just miss the opportunities to go out without the exhausting fear of getting infected.

    Stay safe, guys. Much love and luck to all of you.

    Hey guys you better be careful of not playing FF7 Remake too long. You run the risk of turning into JENOVA witnesses if you do. Also fuck those don't trend on me protesters who want the country open.
