Final Fantasy VII Remake

Hello my beautiful materia! This week on NEP, we’re joined by special guest and JRPG expert: Barry from the Nintendo Fuse Podcast. This episode is all JRPG and Square-Enix focused, as we examine the more recent years of Square-Enix (with some love for the classics, too, of course!). Oni Dino also goes into his impressions at length about the demo of Final Fantasy VII Remake, sharing his love and frustration.

Topics include FFXIII trilogy, XIV, XV the Kingdom Hearts series, and more. We end up asking the question, “What can Square-Enix do to revitalize the series?” “What if the FFVII series of releases starts to underperform?” and “Are consumers giving this release structure a dangerous pass?” The main topic of the FFVII Remake demo leads us to talk about the issue of selling the game in multiple parts over multiple generations of hardware and over (presumably) multiple decades. We’ve got three very different, and very opinionated perspectives. Join us, as we take a very deep dive to examine the character writing, the battle system, controls, camera and more of Final Fantasy VII Remake’s demo.

Hello my beautiful materia! We’re closing out our celebration of E3 this week on NEP with another bonus episode. We start things off by discussing Final Fantasy VII Remake since Oni’s been playing the original on Switch lately. We then chat about the event as a whole, how E3 changes moving forward into 2020 and what it means for the games industry as a whole. Galen and Oni also discuss Microsoft’s Scarlett and trends in games at E3, too. Check below the break for more details and timestamps.

To celebrate E3, we’ve been putting out double content all month long! Check out our last 4 episodes! If you’d like to support our show, you can help out by sharing the show with someone who hasn’t heard of us before, and by rating us 5 stars on iTunes! We really appreciate all your support!
