In this week's episode of Axe of the Blood God, we remember an inglorious period in Final Fantasy history: Compilation of Final Fantasy 7 [download link here]!
With Final Fantasy 7 Remake out in two weeks, we talk about Square Enix's desperate attempt to build on the glory of Final Fantasy 7. We praise Crisis Core; chuckle at Dirge of Cerberus, and wonder if Advent Children should even exist. Plus, we talk about how Square Enix arrived at the point where it wanted to do the compilation at all.

Plus: Nadia's Bravely Default 2 impressions!
