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.

The issue was one of - hey-ho - DRM, with the boo-hiss Securom the remake is saddled with apparently failing to activate the game for a whole bunch of people. The official site bears no mention of the problematic release, having reverted to 'Coming Soon', but you can read people doing sadface en masse on the Squeenix forums.

The game will be $12.70 when properly released, sez VG247, and we're likely to see more of it at Gamescom later this month. No doubt a re-release of a 15 year-old JPRG about people with big hair will be the first thing Jim and Adam make a beeline for when they're out there.

I played FF7 on PS1 back in the day. It was ok. Spoiler: something happens to one of the characters.
