would they allow you to update it yourself? Even if theres a deepfreeze that removes any newly installed software whenever the computer is restarted, I think I would use IE to download Chrome every morning when I started so I had something better to work with...





That IE, the world's top browser for downloading another browser

Is it that time already? Well Happy Birthday to Spiky, my very first true child hood hero. I remember telling all the kids at school how cool he was, one thought that his arm brace was some kinda grenade ^^; They never really understood games at that age. But then again...I did..odd..it was how I learned to read and speak so well :x. Regardless! Happy Birthday to Spiky :3

What is strange is the D.O.B. you posted conflicts with what the official website for the PC version gives finalfantasyviipc.com/en (http://finalfantasyviipc.com/en) for Cloud


It states his birthday is August 19th without a given year specified. Can you post a source for your information? Whats the deal with him having two different D.O.B. as you mentioned his original birthday is August 19th but this is what the website says it is. So what makes it not original? Not calling you out or anything. I am merely curious :)

This again... There are several sources for both dates: The newer ones say August 11, while the older ones say August 19. To make a long story short: August 19 is most likely a date Cloud came up with when he was trying to mimic Zack and should therefore be Zack's birthday.

You know its funny, in my JPN version manual it has no birthdays at all, only in my US copy, I think in Japan he was never given an official birthday and the one he had on American Release was a temporary one, or rather, yes Zacks.

Don't worry, it's not like I'm going to leave the site (why would I?), it's just that I won't drop by as often or post much in the way of my own opinions, etc. If I do happen to come across anything Square Enix of interest, I'll leave a link in the appropriate thread. And, if there is ever anything I can do for anyone...Hottokenai.


Either way: Since this is not a thread about Grimoire Valentine, let us return to the main subject: Delivery Boy Cloud Strife.

I noticed that in the manual of FF7 for the Playstation, Cloud's birthday is August 19, or 8/19. In FFT (Final Fantasy Tactics) He has the wrong birthdate, was this done purposely or just not cared for. I know this is petty, but just something I noticed.

Cloud's "Mam" is called Claudia Strife. She was 33 years old when she died, and 17 when Cloud was born.

Just started a new game of FFVII and I was wondering if there was ever some sort of official explanation of the voices in Cloud's head that occur throughout the game. I've read many theories and of course I have my own,but I've never found anything to solidify any of them.

Thanks for being ignorant and rude, I'm new to the site, and forum. I also come from a family that isn't the richest, never owned a PSP and never had any of the movies just Tactics and FF7. I had to beg to get FF7 remake, I'm 15, and when I earn money it goes to more important things than video games. Thanks though, for pointing me out and redirecting me so kindly. I wanted a simple answer.
