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. After all, this wasn’t just one of the most beloved games of all time, but a remake that had festered in the imagination since the FFVII PS3 technical demo back at E3 2005. Once we had come to terms with the fact that we were finally getting what many of us...

Project Resistance was a surprise. Announced just a few days in advance of Tokyo Game Show, it was a welcome addition to what was shaping up to be a very limited selection of demos at Capcom.

To make matters worse, at least one member of the dev team was watching my pathetic attempts to progress through his game. Just a terrible experience all round. The game seemed pretty good though. As you probably...
