Recent news about Final Fantasy VII possibly releasing on Steam has put the game back on our collective minds. It appears that won't be happening as predicted, but Square Enix is putting out an updated PC version of the game on its store.

This website -- which is, I have to say, rather slick -- has the juicy details. They're adding 36 Achievements, a character booster (huh?), and most importantly, cloud support for game saves. That last one is a must, in my mind, but doesn't always get implemented.

The system requirements are also listed:

  • Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7 (32/64-bit)
  • 2GHz Processor or faster
  • 1GB RAM
  • DirectX 9-compatible graphic card

Can you dig it?

Cloud's Buster Sword weighs 80 pounds in real life

It's another videogame-themed episode of Man at Arms. This time, he recreated Cloud's Buster Sword from Final Fantasy VII. I love this show so much. A master blacksmith recreates videogame weapons and then goes around smashing a bunch of stuff. I love it!more

Persona 5 is coming to PS4, gets first trailer

Atlus' YouTube has our first look at Persona 5, which appears to have a ruffled brown haired boy protagonist and subways. Not a lot to get excited about aside from the fact that Persona 5 is exciting inherently. Though there was an announcement of a PS4 version of the previously PS3-restricted title. Makes sense. more

Costume Quest 2 is still cute, trying to be more engaging

Costume Quest, like every Double Fine game, is charming. It's a fresh-feeling, low stakes take on the JRPG genre, more Earthbound than Final Fantasy. Though, as Chad put it in his review, it's "RPG Lite," accessible...more
