Final Fantasy VII remake: hands-on TGS 2019 preview

Sep 21, 2019

The raw, visceral reaction to the announcement of the FFVII remake at E3 2015 was a memorable moment.

The initial announcement offered only the basic details. I understood the premise, but everything else was a mystery to me. This made for a nice change, going into a demo...

Sep 14, 2019

  Yakuza 7 is a departure from what came before. Series lead Kazuma Kiryu is out, to be replaced by another hard-man with a big heart, Ichiban Kasuga. Also, the main location has switched from the familiar Tokyo setting to Yokohama. However, the biggest change is to be found in the combat.
