Did The ‘Final Fantasy VII: Remake’ Live Up To The Hype?

Published

Final Fantasy VII: Remake [Square Enix]

First thing is first, and that will be this article is spoiler free. Final Fantasy is one of the most treasured and historic video game franchises to appear on any console. Although the newer entries to the series have been somewhat–lackluster or lacking that classic “lore” that hasn’t been recaptured for years now, we finally received what had been spoken of and hyped for years.

Final Fantasy VII is one of the most popular games in not just the franchises history, but gaming history. The game was originally released on the original playstation back in 1997 to critical acclaim and worldwide fanfare. A remake of the game had been teased for what seemed like ages, and finally in 2015, the dream of every Cloud Strife fan had come into fruition, as it was officially announced.

So fast forward to the year of 2020, and oh what a year it has been. At first the game had a release day of March 3rd, 2020. With fans literally in hysteria the long awaited release would hit another bump in the road. Square Enix would later announce the game would be pushed back a month with a new schedule release date of April 10th. With the ever growing Covid-19 scare, many fans were afraid it could even be pushed back longer.

The day of April 10th came, with the world shuddered in fear and isolation, there would finally be a piece of good news, the game was released. Many of the copies were bought digitally as buying within stores had become almost impossible due to the closing of stores worldwide. Yet this did not seem to matter for everyone who had lived through the eyes of Cloud Strife and Co. the time had finally arrived. In addition to the hype came along the sales of 3.5 million copies within the first three days alone.

So after diving into the game and completing it, did it truly live up to the hype?  The game’s graphics to say the least are beautiful, it truly shows the power the PS4 can truly possess. The story of course like the original was very well done, even if the game which can take you anywhere from 25-50 hours to complete, only contains about 10-15% of the entire story (yes, multiple parts will be released to complete the saga). With all of your favorite characters from the original with completely remodeled graphics and voice acting, what Square Enix was able to complete here was quite simply put, astonishing.

So here we are nearly three months into the release of this remade classic, it really took what everyone loved from Midgar and the original game and spiced it up. It is hard to imagine tinkering with such a treasure, but it worked really well here. Even if this game is broken into parts, every playstation owner should own this game in their collection, and for Microsoft fans, it will be coming to Xbox consoles in the near future. So after years of delays, push-backs, a scary virus and whatever when on during these years, was the journey back to Midgar worth it? Yes, it truly was.

New Elden Ring Gameplay Footage Has Arrived!

Published

on

Credit: WCCFtech

The newest title from acclaimed developer FromSoftware has debuted 20 minutes of gameplay for fans!

Gaming as of right now has left me empty. Growing up, I was always looking forward to the biggest titles that will be coming out but now I have lost that energy and have mainly prioritized playing games I missed out on for when I was too young to play them or games I have missed throughout the last decade. The few titles that stood out to me from 2020 were The Last of Us Part II, Hades, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and Demon Souls. However, if there is one studio I will consistently buy a new release on day one, it is FromSoftware. In the last decade, this Japanese studio has been on a hot streak with games such as Dark Souls III, Bloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice proving to fans that they want to experiment with new worlds and gameplay mechanics while also having that difficult gameplay curve fans of theirs have been accustomed to. My only advice to newcomers is to give their PS4 exclusive, Bloodborne a try and do not give up, however, I digress. Their newest title, Elden Ring, combines both elements of Dark Souls while also being written by Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin. Since its announcement trailer in 2019, followed by its second trailer this year, I was gaining more and more excitement from the title while also having some worries/doubts.

Today, the studio has officially revealed its gameplay mechanics and world-building with over 20 minutes worth of new information for fans to sink their teeth into as well as announcements of collectors editions of the game. Judging from the trailer, the game looks like a compilement of everything the studio has built up to: from the world reminiscent of the Dark Souls trilogy to the boss design of Bloodborne and the gameplay ideas taken from Sekiro. Elden Ring not only looks sensational but feels like the first time an open-world game will live up to its potential, making 2017’s Breath of the Wild have some competition. Elden Ring prioritizes freedom and the vast open land of the Lands Between with its very large map alongside its main quest and side missions but also adding in dungeons for players to explore through filled with bosses and treasures to be found within. Elden Ring also displays how summoning will work alongside how PVP and cooperative multiplayer will be used, it cannot be a FromSoftware title without invasions of players ruining your playthrough. Sure, we have only been given 20 minutes worth of gameplay footage but I have a safe chance that Elden Ring will be a homerun from FromSoftware. Personally, I believe it will be the most accessible title from the studio for newcomers of their games while also having that difficulty curve. This is undoubtedly my most anticipated game release of 2022, and I believe that the recent delay from January to late February is perfectly understandable. My fuel for gaming has been rekindled and February 25th, 2022 cannot come soon enough.

Check out the gameplay footage below!

Elden Ring will be released February 25th, 2022 on PS4/5, Xbox Series X/S and PC
