The Final Fantasy VII Remake Opening Is A Little Longer And A Lot Prettier

The Final Fantasy VII Remake Opening Is A Little Longer And A Lot Prettier

The opening movie for Final Fantasy VII starts with a field of stars, fades into Aeris, pulls back to reveal the city of Midgar, and then follows Cloud and Barret’s train to its destination. The Final Fantasy VII Remake opening does that too, only prettier and with a lot more Midgar.

As iconic as it is, the opening movie for the original FFVII wastes a whole lot of time with rumbling and...

Final Fantasy VII Remake's Chocobo Chick Looks So Dragon Ball

Final Fantasy VII Remake's Chocobo Chick Looks So Dragon Ball

While it’s unclear what the hell happened to Carbuncle in Final Fantasy VII Remake, the Chocobo summons looks like it’s taking a page out of Dragon Ball. 

Chocobo has varied over the years, but there have been different twists on the design, but the Final Fantasy VII Remake design looks like it has a Super Saiyan ‘do:

The Chocobo chick summons really does have that Super Saiyan flair.

What The Hell Has Final Fantasy VII Remake Done To Carbuncle

What The Hell Has Final Fantasy VII Remake Done To Carbuncle

Square Enix released a big batch of new Final Fantasy VII Remake screenshots today, including one of Carbuncle, who is usually one of the Final Fantasy series’ cutest summons. It now looks like an alien from a 1950s science fiction B-movie.

Is it a fox or a dog? Why is its head so big? Why is it smiling like it doesn’t have a giant gemstone lodged in its forehead? I get that Final Fantasy VII...

I Cannot Emotionally Prepare For Final Fantasy VII Remake

I Cannot Emotionally Prepare For Final Fantasy VII Remake

The Final Fantasy VII Remake is coming in April. I could only watch the first 30 seconds of the new trailer released today before I had to close the tab in fear. I can’t possibly become emotionally ready in time. This video represents my best, most terrible attempt at making myself ready.

At the center of today’s Pre-Review lurks one question: how are video game likers who stepped away from the...

Cloud Strife Looks Great In A Dress In Final Fantasy VII Remake

Cloud Strife Looks Great In A Dress In Final Fantasy VII Remake

In the original Final Fantasy VII, Cloud Strife dons a dress as part of a rescue mission. Way back in 2015, Square Enix’s Tetsuya Nomura said the character would once again wear a dress in the remake, and now the character finally shows off those threads.

The original Honey Bee Inn looked like it was based on soaplands, which are bathhouses for prostitution in Japan, and love hotels, which is...

Final Fantasy VII Remake's Box Art Sure Is Misleading

Final Fantasy VII Remake's Box Art Sure Is Misleading

This is the box art, released this morning, for the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake, which is out March 3, 2020. It’s killer art. But if you saw it on a store shelf, you would have absolutely no idea that it’s actually just part one of the remake.

The game that publisher Square Enix is calling “Final Fantasy VII Remake” is actually an expanded and enhanced version of the Midgar section of...

I'm Still Thinking About The Final Fantasy VII Remake E3 2019 Demo

I'm Still Thinking About The Final Fantasy VII Remake E3 2019 Demo

Despite the high possibility of my dying of brain-overload-related shock during my first experience with Final Fantasy VII Remake, I lived. Two weeks later, I’m still thinking about it. Here’s my fresh-off-the-moment video report from the E3 show floor.

You’ll hear me gush about the battle system. This gushing is coming from a guy who had just finished playing the game mere moments...

What Game Would You Most Like To See Remade?

What Game Would You Most Like To See Remade?

For the longest time, I’ve been telling people how special Link’s Awakening is. I had to explain that even though it was for the original GameBoy, it’s one of the best Zelda games Nintendo made. Similar to Super Mario Bros. 2, it was part of a dream world, but that was what made the game so distinctive. Gone were the familiar Ganon, Zelda, and Hyrule. In their place was the Wind Fish, Tarin,...

What I’m Most Looking Forward To Re-Experiencing In The Final Fantasy VII Remake

What I’m Most Looking Forward To Re-Experiencing In The Final Fantasy VII Remake

I bought the original PlayStation just so I could play Final Fantasy VII. Until then, all I’d had was a SNES and a Genesis, so I was in awe when the opening cutscene for FFVII began. The rest of the game was equally stunning, the visuals beyond anything I’d thought possible in a game. I couldn’t wait to find out more about this “SOLDIER” named Cloud who was fighting to save the planet while...

What Tetsuya Nomura Actually Said About Tifa's Breasts In The Final Fantasy 7 Remake

This past Wednesday, like every Wednesday, summaries of the leaked Weekly Famitsu appeared online in Japanese. The magazine doesn’t go on sale until Thursday, and this week’s leaks, along with some insufficient translations, have created confusions of what exactly Tetsuya Nomura said regarding Tifa Lockhart’s body in the Final Fantasy 7 remake.

As pointed out by YouTuber Gaijinhunter, who...
