Trouble & Strife For The Final Fantasy VII PC Remake

N.B. - please feel free to interchange the words 'bad' and 'good' in the next two sentences as you see fit. Bad news: the deathless 90s JRPG that inspired a hundred million DeviantArt pages, Final Fantasy VII, is to be re-released for PC, in a shinier form with new bits.
