The first part of the Final Fantasy VII Remake has finally arrived. Exactly how successful the full project is remains to be seen, but if nothing else the opening act has done everything it could in getting our reviewer incredibly excited for the second.
Final Fantasy VII Remake
Yes, the HD remake of Final Fantasy VII is actually a thing. Please note that this is only part one, as the remake is being split into multiple titles.
It’s been a week full of news, some exciting, some alarming. Chris breaks the site…repeatedly. Kelley comes to terms with the fact mowing the lawn is hard in real life. Josh explains Japanese tabloid scandals. Anna Marie assigns a tedious task to Pascal.
Chris snuggles his Teddy body pillow. Kelley signs up for rare Pokémon. Josh sacrifices children (what?!). Meanwhile Anna Marie is off celebrating her birthday by spreading the hork.
Joshua asks “Am I fighting a house?!” (spoilers: he is). Chris is on the wrong side of 40, and somehow forgets JRPGJuly. Kelley espouses “Exposure: The Cryptocurrency of Artists.” Anna Marie is teaching the whole RPGamer staff how to speedrun FF4: Free Enterprise. Yes, things got a little…weird this week.
Anna Marie, Chris, and Kelley are joined by special guest Ryan Radcliff! Chris swears every time E3 fails, an angel gets its wings. Anna Marie refuses to play games she’s in. Kelley wants to pet the cat cream roll. And Ryan is dragging around Paws’s corpse as he spins all the wheels.
On this week’s show, Chris is going through his failed Kickstarters; Anna Marie is off banging a ghost, which was fun; Kelley is collecting wheels of cheese in Skyrim; Josh is lookin’ fly in his Yakuza shoes; and Alex wonders why he didn’t just skip this week and write more E3 stories.
