Final Fantasy VII Review

It’s no secret that one of this year’s most hotly anticipated RPGs - if not games - was Final Fantasy VII Remake. Ever since the fateful technical demo during the PlayStation 3’s reveals back in 2005at E3, the gaming world was sent into a frenzy over a possible remake of the beloved PS1 classic. And now it’s real, in our hands and has definitely not disappointed as the numbers speak for themselves.
Within its first 3 days since the eagerly awaited RPG’s launch on April 10th, Square Enix reports that it has shipped over 3.5 million copies. The report states that these figures include digital sales as well as shipments of physical copies, making it one of the fastest-moving PlayStation 4 exclusives to date. This is an impressive feat, considering the current state of the world.

If we were to make any comparisons, Final Fantasy XV, Square Enix’s latest numbered entry in the popular RPG series, moved over 5 million copies within the same timeframe. This was at a time when deliveries weren’t an issue and there were no stock shortages. On top of that, FFXV wasn’t a PlayStation 4 exclusive.

A lot of fans have been speculating that Final Fantasy VII Remake may be king of fast selling exclusives on PS4 but it’s a hard conclusion to make. For reference, both God of War and Spider-Man sold roughly 3.1 and 3.3 million copies respectively, they’re figures are based on sales numbers, instead of shipments.

What remains now is to see if the RPG can continue its hot streak. While there are a lot of people who are enjoying the game and have plenty of accolades on social media to throw its way, there are those who have been sharply critical about it. This is pertaining to Final Fantasy VII Remake’s story, how Nomura and his team have changed it and added story beats.

More importantly, the most critical have been quite vocal about the game’s altered ending. Notorious YouTube game critic, Jim Sterling, posited that the “remake” in the game’s title may be somewhat misleading when compared to more faithfully remade games, such as Resident Evil 2.

There’s no denying that the remake of one of the most beloved RPGs in history was going to be a big seller, regardless of divisiveness. It’s clear that the game has sold exceptionally well so it will be interesting how the next episode - or episodes - will do when they ever release.

A New Def Jam game maybe? Roster Ideas by Corey Floyd

over the past month or so DefJam has been throwing some hints that they might make another fighting game. About two console generations ago (ps2, Xbox, GC) there was a game from EA BIG called Def Jam Vendetta. It was a wrestling style game but with hip-hop artists. DMX would literally kick your ass. Redman & Method Man was the best (and still are) tag team ever. It was a hit !! The follow-up fight for NY was a great sequel with even more artists in fighting form. Then the third one was garbage, hot garbage simmering in garbage juice. It bombed hard. Now it looks like we might get another. Bosslogic even came up with a title. Today I'm gonna come up with who should be in it. Some old, some new, some more gals, and some new dudes. 1. Missy Elliot Missy Elliot has been in the game for a long time. Somehow despite all of her hits, she has never been given the title of queen of hip-hop. In the game, she could be the queen of mean. Give her a footing style that matc

Scissor Seven on Netflix Stream or Skip

STREAM OR SKIP?   Scissor Seven is a Chinese animated series that was streamed in 2018 with the name of Killer Seven. As soon as Netflix streamed this show at the start of 2020, it became a hit globally! With the increasing popularity of Anime, Netflix has created a whole Anime library for anime fans. Scissor Seven is the first Chinese anime being streamed on Netflix. It’s a serious debate on whether to call it an anime or not, but I won’t get into that discussion for now.   Why Should You Watch Scissor Seven? If I needed to coat only a single thing in the list of why you should be watching it that would be the COMEDY! It is hilarious! Seven might not be the best killer, but that Goofy-head is the best entertainer for sure! It is a hilarious satire on the whole hero business, as we can how Seven is nothing but a Professional Goof! Scissors is his ultimate weapon on which he uses his telekinetic abilities. Every Hero needs a sidekick, here our sidekick is an angry bird with
