Final Fantasy 7 Remake PC Gets Slammed

Hello, guys, and welcome to the Gaming News for 19 Dec 2021. Final Fantasy 7 Remake PC has been reviewed by Digital Foundry and it has been absolutely slammed. Alexander Battaglia tweeted out saying "As mentioned, I am not covering Final Fantasy VII Remake yet the stutters that happen as you immediately get in game rendered graphics are just unacceptable. Anyone testing and playing this game on PC before release should surely realize that your cinematic game should not do that." And then John Linneman, who also works with Digital Foundry, said, "Alert: Alex sent his clips over for us to check out and, yeah, the PC port of Final Fantasy VII Remake is terrible. He captured this using an RTX 3090 and a 10900K (CPU) at just 1080p and it's a mess. The smooth presentation was central to its storytelling and this version compromises it." And then Alex doubles down to what he tweeted out before by going on a forum called Resetera to saying that "This is literally the worst AAA release I have seen on PC in a good long time. I humbly submit that no one should buy it." People do trust Digital Foundry's opinion because they tend to back up their reviews for PC tech with proof of frame rate and performance and stuff like that. Also as well they're comparing unfortunately games like The Medium at launch and the original No Man's Sky in terms of performance, which is so bad. I hope that Square Enix can fix it.

Remnant From the Ashes

The next bit of news for today is Remnant From the Ashes is going to be available for free for the next couple of hours on the Epic Games Store and then we will see what the next game is going to be revealed. Epic Games are doing a 15 free games promotion during the Christmas period so be sure to take advantage of it because you're able to redeem the games, add them to your account for free and you'll have them forever. Take advantage while you can.

Jack Sather Feature

And then this week's feature and shout out is going to go to Jack Sather. He's a YouTuber who makes really good in depth coverage of whatever game he picks, and he doesn't release that many videos. He's barely released any over the last year, but he puts a lot of time and a lot of thought into the videos. He edits them well. They're really entertaining to watch. There's a lot of information. You can tell a lot of work and research has gone into the content and I watched his video of Red Dead Online is Ruined and by the end of it, it made me want to play Red Dead Online if the suggestions he put to fix the game were actually implemented, even though I've never played it, that's how good the video was. Shout out to Jack and I hope to see more content from him in the future and I would highly recommend others to check out his content. Anyway, guys, that's it for the Gaming News for this week. Thank you very much as always, for the new followers. I appreciate you. And I'll see you tomorrow. Thanks, guys. Bye bye.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have played hundreds of games in my life and have experienced truly amazing games. As time has passed and games continue to evolve, I want to share my gaming adventures with the world so you can improve your gaming experience too.

There are several gaming franchises I love experiencing a lot such as Final Fantasy, Resident Evil, God of War, Uncharted, Yakuza, Assassin's Creed, The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, Xenoblade Chronicles and more.

In 1997 when I was 12 years old, a class mate of mine asked me, have you ever played Final Fantasy 7? I was like no, what’s that? He lent me his copy, and I remember on the first night I escaped Midgar after not being able to put it down for 5 to 6 hours even though it was a school night. Shortly after I finished the game and my gaming obsession was truly planted.

Towards the end of 1998 I played Zelda 64 Ocarina of Time. It was a revelation to me, given its combat, story telling, music and satisfying ending. It also gave a hint of what open world could look like given how “huge” Hyrule Field was, which was massive for the time. After nearly 25 years, Zelda 64 Ocarina of Time still sits at the top of my favourite games of all time list.

When I went to University during 2003 to 2007, it was the era of Half Life 2. I remember spending a portion of my student loan so I could get a gaming pc powerful enough to play it.

During that time I also started my adventures in MMOs including Final Fantasy 11 and World of Warcraft. It amazes me that they are still online to this day.

After leaving University, I like most people ended up in the 9 to 5 cycle, after a year of being stuck in the “no job without experience, no experience without a job”. At the time I was still living with my parents and I got distracted on girls for a while. My love for gaming never ended though, with it always being a fall back for me.

In 2013, I started my first YouTube channel, as a way to also document my time in the upcoming Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn. I had seen some YouTubers who made really good videos. For me, at the time, it was a hobby to do on the evening and weekends, I never went into it thinking one day it would be my job. I would have made videos, even if it made no money at all.

After 10 years of multiple jobs, living a very miserable existence in the 9 to 5 cycle, it all abruptly ended in 2018 with my disability of severe anxiety preventing me from commuting to London to work any more.

During the Pandemic, a lot of people were losing their jobs, and there was a lot more time to produce videos and play games. While growing as a content creator, I noticed my Instagram page had little to no content. One day I picked up my phone and recorded a video talking about gaming as it was my favourite hobby.

As I have now played hundreds of games and my passion has evolved for the last 30 years, I see my love for gaming lasting until the day I die. Games have made me laugh, made me cry, and everything in between. The recent price increases have definitely dampened gaming for most gamers, but I am in a privileged position as an Independent Gaming Journalist to receive a lot of games for free from developers and publishers to review.

I hope I can always bring the highest quality Gaming News every day, in digestible 1 to 1.5 minute summaries, to share the passion I have always had for it.

Not at all, I simply starting playing a lot of other games too.

I started in August 2013 as a hobby, and went full time during 2018.

Being a YouTuber, Streamer, or Content Creator is not the primary goal. I am working to enjoy my life and remain independent. I do not want to spend my life taking orders from other people.
