Axe of the Blood God: Our Non-Spoiler Final Fantasy 7 Remake Discussion

Axe of the Blood God: Our Non-Spoiler Final Fantasy 7 Remake Discussion

We talk about the review in the latest episode of the RPG podcast.

In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God, it's finally time to review Final Fantasy 7 Remake [download link here]!

I'm joined by Senior Guides Writer Jake Green, and we talk through the improvements, the bits that we didn't really like, and whether it lives up to 15 years of hype. Jake is a relative newcomer to Final Fantasy 7, so I think his perspective balances with my own. You can of course read my Final Fantasy 7 Remake review right here.

As a reminder, this episode has no spoilers. We talk very generally about a couple elements, but this episode is by and large way less spoiler-y than even the launch trailer. We'll be back next week with a fuller discussion of spoilers, so hang tight!
