Final Fantasy VIII Hits Steam With Free Cheat Tool
As of today, if you’re into playing old JRPGs on PC you can grab Final Fantasy VIII from Steam for $12. These are exciting times, because there are people who think it’s the best of all those games and you might agree with them!
Interestingly enough, FFVIII on Steam comes with some bonuses, one of which I totally would have expected to be attainable via microtrasaction. That one is the Magic Booster, which adds 100 units of whatever spells you have in your inventory — this is merely a tool in the launcher, and not a $2 DLC consumable. Pretty awesome. The other is Chocobo World, a minigame that interacts with FFVIII proper if you do it right.
Folks on Steam are talking about how this edition of the game comes with the crappy old MIDIs, and for whatever reason this is a complaint. Long live the MIDIs!
