New Final Fantasy VII remake trailer hints at PC version

We know for sure that Final Fantasy VII's remake will be exclusive to the PS4 for a year. After that, maybe Square Enix'll just dust their hands off and never speak of it again, but that seems unlikely. They've still not confirmed a PC version but the repeated emphasis on "exclusive until 2021" sure makes ya think we'll see it this time next year. A…

Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s full 5 minute intro movie is revealed

The Final Fantasy VII Remake is still about two months away—now scheduled for April 10th—but the marketing machine is spinning up and there's no stopping it now. We still don't know for sure if it's coming to PC but frankly I'll be shocked if it doesn't wind up in our hands when the year-long PlayStation exclusivity ends in 2021.Today Square Enix have shared the entire intro…

By the by, Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s PS4 exclusivity now ends in April 2021

Square Enix still have not announced a release for Final Fantasy VII Remake on any system other than PlayStation 4, but they're certainly staying up to date with what they're not saying. They've recently updated the JRPG's box art to echo its recent one-month delay, now saying that it's a PS4 exclusive until April 10th, 2021. What happens then? Ah, who knows. Could be anything.…

Final Fantasy VII Remake is a PS4 exclusive only for one year

Over the four years since Square Enix announced their Final Fantasy VII Remake for PlayStations, they've been mighty vague about where else they might release it and when. They still haven't confirmed a PC release but they have now made clear that the PS4 exclusivity is exactly one year long? After that? Oh, who knows. They'll probably just bin it. No strong feelings for anything…

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT punching onto PC as free-to-play

Following the epic boyband road trip of Final Fantasy XV, Square Enix now plan to let us create our own pop trios in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. Today they announced the 3v3 crossover brawler, made with Dead Or Alive developers Team Ninja and released on PlayStation 4 in 2018, is coming to PC as a free-to-play edition. I think my dream pop trio might be…

Hallucinated HD textures and distorted deep dream tilesets

The hot new way to create high-resolution texture pack to fancy up old games is 'deep learning', feeding the original textures into a computer so algorithms can draw more-detailed versions of what they imagine the images look like. It has... varied results. I'm a hoary purist who still plays Quake pixellated without texture filtering so I'm not mad keen on these hallucinated manglings, but I…

Possibly Maybe PC? Final Fantasy VII Remake Announced

Playing with fire is dangerous, but the worst the fire does is consume you. Fire won't then kick your charcoal corpse yelling "That's what you get!" while holding back firefighters and medics because you're "a pigging idiot who deserves this and worse". No, only playing with fan nostalgia is that dangerous. Speaking of, Square Enix announced a remake of Final Fantasy VII [official site].They haven't…

Finally: Square Realizes Final Fantasies Should Be On PC

The PC is not entirely bereft of Big Hair And Superfluous Zippers: The Neverending (Candy) Saga, which is sometimes colloquially referred to as "Final Fantasy." The series' MMO entries, FFXI and FFXIV, got their starts here, and PlayStation One classics FFVII and FFVIII recently received refurbished Steam ports. That majority of numbered Final Fantasy games, however, have stuck to the realm of buttons, thumbsticks, and cameras…

Cloud Gaming: Final Fantasy VII On Steam

As I browsed through the list of new releases on Steam this morning, a blaring midi tune began to belch its way into my brain. The screen flashed - a random encounter! Final Fantasy VII had unexpectedly appeared, a comically large sword thrusting from the screen and carrying with it promises of a seemingly endless slog through a bloated story with precisely one memorable scene.…

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. Good news: its launch over the weekend was pulled due to technical problems.
