COI - Excerpt from an old teaser for Nibelheim Redux
25 hisses or Hiss in my ear....

Yay! More goodies! You seem to be on quite the roll lately.
This has definitely brightened my mood.

Hmm.. definitely saw the signs of Strife in the Nibleheim COI version the first time around. xD I love the way you have the Corporal compare him to a crazy chocobo. There really isn't much difference, is there? Looks the same too. ;3

There was something about it though... I'unno, but the whole Nibleheim COI version, including this has always seemed kind of...weird to me. Not the actual events, but the way it was written. Kind of forced, and though there's plenty of action, I can never really keep focus on it for long. XD I always end up taking a break after reading through the first couple bits, read more later, then skip to near the end.
Maybe it's just because of it being written about Nibleheim. For some reason I was never really deeply interested in Nibleheim even when I played the game. O_o it was more like, get Vincent, go through the cut-scenes, beat the moster on the mountain and get the heck out.

I guess I just never liked Nibleheim. =3

Ah, well, to each their own. ^_^;

I do obsess a bit about Nibelheim, because it's the point where everything changes. And given Sephiroth's and Zack's closeness in COI, it makes it especially important (to me, at least) to figure out exactly what goes wrong and the details on how and why Sephiroth turns on Zack.

That understanding is instrumental for formulating Sephiroth's thought processes and behavior in the present day story.

So Nibelheim Redux isn't essential reading for COI, but it does provide a lot of useful plot and character background. ^_^

Re: From:WolfishSerenity

O.o I suppose I should say that Nibelheim as a PLACE just never interested me.
I did find the events at Nibelheim interesting, but for some reason, because of the fact that it is (duh) Nibelheim, kind of cancels out the interestingness sometimes.
Though it's definitely important. The entire game is based off those events, really. No Nibelheim, no main character, no Psycho "Villain". But Yeah.. maybe because it's a backwoods town?

Or maybe it's just because I get sick of Strife's constant complaining through the whole thing. xD Not that it isn't important, and if it wasn't there, I'd have to say Strife would be "OOC", even if you DID create him. I really don't know WHAT exactly it is about it that just makes me stray away from the COI Nibelheim Redux.

I guess I'll leave the subject be. I'll end out pulling out my hair if I think too hard on it. That, or gnawing on my PS controller. x3
