Marvel’s Avengers July War Table news: Beta content details! Hawkeye joins the game!

If you were skeptic about Square Enix’s game Marvel’s Avengers, maybe this new trailer will convince you.

Marvel's Avengers Beta to Offer Over 20 Missions, Hawkeye DLC Post ...

Yesterday on July 29th, Square Enix did a livestream for a second War Table news showcasing the upcoming Beta in August. In my previous article about Avengers, a beta is coming to digital stores for gamers who pre-ordered the game or others who didn’t.

  • Aug 7th: PS4 (Pre-orders only)
  • Aug 14th: Xbox and PC (Pre-orders only). PS4 (Open Beta)
  • Aug 21st: Open Beta for all systems.

In the trailer, gamers will be able to download and access the game’s beta and experience the chance to play Avengers before it comes out on September 4th. According to the trailer, players will be able to play a few mission stages from the game’s story such as having the opportunity to fight Abomination. The missions available will be for anyone who prefers solo and co-op gaming. Players will only be able to play as four confirmed characters such Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow and Kamela Khan (Ms. Marvel). Also revealed, players will have full access to unleash Iron Man’s ultimate weapon, the Hulkbuster. Teased in the first War Table trailer, the Hulkbuster is an ultimate attack for Iron Man and this gives players the ability to don the heavy hulkish machine and smash your way through enemies. The Hulkbuster is available in the beta.

Hawkeye

Final Fantasy VII Remake Deluxe Edition Gamestop exclusive unboxing

I been wanting to do this unboxing post way back in April, but due to work, coronavirus and family stuff, my life has been busy. I also got preoccupied in the recent game of Final Fantasy VII Remake. Besides this, I am here to talk about the game’s package and what version I got. If you have been keeping up with the news I been writing, Square Enix released information on the pre-order bonuses of Final Fantasy VII Remake. There are three versions in which fans can either get the standard, deluxe or the expensive 1st Class Edition. Knowing that I wanted this game when it was first announced, I settled for the deluxe edition; it had many goodies than the standard, but it was also affordable than getting the game over $100. The deluxe edition comes with the game and standard case, a steelbook case with Sephiroth on the cover, a mini soundtrack from the game, DLC such as a Chocobo Chick and Cactuar and an artbook. Depending where you buy it from a retailer, you also get some exclusives. I went ahead and pre-ordered at my GameStop which a tin box and a Shinra keycard replica.

I don’t collect steelbooks often, but they are pretty cool to have. I have a Kingdom Hearts III, Final Fantasy XV, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT and God of War. When you get the case for Final Fantasy VII Remake, you get to have Sephiroth on the cover and on this inside, there are two slots in which you can put you game discs in it. The inside has a picture of Cloud staring at the Shinra Reactor.

The artbook is pretty cool since it does show the designs on the characters and enemies. I am not going to show everything since I don’t want to take up space on the memory. The soundtrack is pretty small. It only comes with 12 tracks from the game.

Last but not least, we have the keycard. The tin box is small, but pretty shiny. The front of the card has the title and logo of Final Fantasy VII Remake and on the back has the ID number and the Shinra logo. If you are wondering, the ID card number does nothing. I was curious and I tried to see if I can use it for an exclusive DLC code since it has the same number digits as a PSN code. However, it doesn’t do anything. This is just something to have and pretend as if you are either a Shinra worker or an Avalanche member trying to sneak into the base.

So this what it looks like if you get the deluxe edition. Did you get this edition too or did you get something else?

Last Order: Final Fantasy VII spoiler review

Image gallery for Final Fantasy VII: Last Order - FilmAffinity

Wikipedia describes it:

The plot of Last Order encompasses two events that occurred before the main events of Final Fantasy VII. One storyline revolves around the Nibelheim scenario that focuses on Zack Fair, Cloud Strife, Sephiroth and Tifa Lockhart. The other event follows Zack and Cloud as they run from the megacorporation Shinra. The OVA cuts back and forth between these two flashbacks, linked by the narration of Turk leader Tseng and his reflections on the Nibelheim event. Originally meant to focus on Zack, Last Order highlighted Tseng’s feelings and position in the Shinra company, as well as his moral values.

Square Enix releases final Final Fantasy VII Remake trailer

Final Fantasy VII Remake final trailer - Gematsu

Greetings gamers! I hope everyone is excited for next week because the upcoming video game Final Fantasy VII Remake game will released all over the world in April 10th for PS4. With all this announcements and updates, Square Enix has released one last trailer for this game. The final trailer showcases the game’s epic moments as Cloud and his friends fight Shinra in the city of Midgar. Whether you are a new or old fan, players will be able to relieve the events of Midgar and experience something entirely new. Are you planning to get this game?

Final Fantasy VII Remake will have 100GB

Seriously, Calm Down About Final Fantasy VII – The Arcade

We are one week away for the release of Square Enix’s long awaited video game remake of Final Fantasy VII. While most people already have the game in the Europeon and Austrailan country, they probably already know about the game’s memory capacity. If you think Red Dead Redemption 2 was big, Final Fantasy VII Remake will change your mind. According to IGN, the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake video game will have up to 100GB. In a interview with the developers, gaming news USgamer asked Square Enix why does this game have 100GBs. FFVIIR co-director Naoki Hamaguchi states this:

“Rather than thinking about repurposing standard assets for individual locations, like the Slums or the Shinra Building, we decided to build each location using unique assets to achieve the quality desired for [Final Fantasy 7 Remake].”

In short, as the player explore Midgar (the main setting for this game), the location such as the Slums and the Shinra Reactor buildings will be unique in features and appearances as opposed to reusing the same assets. Instead of recycling the same asset for different parts of the town, each location will appear different than the other and making them feel unique. Hamaguchi also comments that this will also affect the game’s characters and background music. This game wants players to explore Midgar and experience every part of the location and see the uniqueness.

If you didn’t know, Final Fantasy VII Remake will be an episodic retelling of the classic Final Fantasy VII game. This one will focus on Cloud and his friends in Midgar.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Demo Impression

Image result for final fantasy vii remake

We are one month away until the official release of Final Fantasy VII Remake, but Square Enix was kind enough to let us play a quick demo of the game. This demo won’t carry any items to the official game unlike the Platinum Demo from Final Fantasy XV where players are given the chance to name the summon Carbuncle. However, in a tweet, players who downloads the demo before May 11th will be given a free PS4 theme.

Can you guys believe that we are finally going to be getting a Final Fantasy VII game in HD and a whole new makeover? When it was first teased in an old E3 convention, Sony showed the power of the PS3 of what would happen if they did a PS3 remake of Final Fantasy VII. This made fans wanting this game and it took years for the idea to become a reality. Square Enix later confirmed that Final Fantasy VII will be remade and it will episodic for the PS4 instead; however, it is unknown for what plans does Square Enix have since this exclusive title will last until 2021. Regardless, We finally get the chance to taste test Final Fantasy VII Remake and we get to see if this is a hit or miss.

Impression: Avalanche iconic mission

The demo begins just like the classic game where you, as Cloud, must help the Avalanche team infiltrate Shinra’s Mako Reactor 1 bombing mission. The demo only goes on all the way to the Scorpion Sentinel Boss and running away from the time bomb. This demo is actually not very long and you could be done about approximately 30-45 minutes. On my first try, it took me about 45 minutes to understand the gameplay and during my second and third playthrough, I easily beat it quickly. I haven’t tried the classic mode so I don’t know the turn-based combat but I did play the normal mode. As someone who has played countless hours of Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts, I was expecting some major changes in combat and gameplay. First of all, there is no jump button. Second, unlike FFXV, the square button is used for fighting and the R1 is to block; pressing that button with the circle allows you to dodge roll. In FFXV, you can either block or dodge with the square button and R1 is to target. Overall, the controls is very different but really easy to learn. One of the things that the game makes use of the new feature is the revamped ATB (Active Time Battle). While gaming, the ATB will allow players perform special attacks, items and magic attacks. It can charge fast whomever you choose to be, but it slows the AI’s ATB. The game also allows you to change characters in a snap. Speaking of characters, you can only play as Cloud and Barret but each has their own fight style. Cloud can fight with his buster sword and even change styles that can prevent him from using magic but grants him devastating counters. Barret can shoot enemies at a distance and his special attack allows him to shoot a powerful attack, but it takes a while to charge it back up to full. Once the full game comes out, you’ll be able to play more than these two. A fun thing they did in this game is that you can destroy Shinra boxes and collect items like potions and eithers. It reminds me of The Legend of Zelda where you can break pots for Rupee. The combat may sound easy but it actually requires strategy. For example, the human enemies which are Shinra SOLDIERS are weak against fire magic and robots are weak against electricity. The boss in this demo is weak against thunder but its attacks is no push over. Like most Final Fantasy games, you will need to study your enemies and make use of the weakness. I really like the details on the characters in the 3D models as opposed to the polygons from the classic 1997. The voices for the characters was good as well even though I do miss some of the previous voices. I really like the voice of Barret which was John Eric Bentley and Jessie which was voiced by Erica Lindbeck. I don’t have a problem with Cloud’s voice which is currently Cody Christian and no longer Steve Burton, but I do miss Steve. However, I don’t hate the new cast and I applaud them for nailing their roles and I can’t wait to spend time with them once I get my copy of the game.

Overall

While this game is not the final product, we have come a long way for getting a remake of a classic game. Square Enix did an awesome job on details and they added brand new things to a classic game. Personally, as someone who likes action games, I think I am going to enjoy Final Fantasy VII Remake as much as I did with Final Fantasy XV. The gameplay feels engaging and I also love the updated soundtrack. They turn a classic soundtrack and made it up to date. If you want to try it out this demo, it is free at the PSN store. The full game is coming out on April 10th, 2020. I am hoping we don’t wait too long for part 2 of Final Fantasy VII Remake.
