Final Fantasy VII Released Today

Any PC owner looking for an RPG fix will be pleased to hear that Square Enix have re-released Final Fantasy VII. Available from today, the download only game is only available from the Square Enix store and comes with achievements, an option to make your characters stronger for those harder battles, and cloud storage (no pun intended) support all for the fantastic price of £7.99 until 12th September (after which the price raises to £9.99).

Sleeping Dogs Trailer

If you’re not already salivating at the forthcoming Sleeping Dogs, then Square Enix have been raising pulse rates with a new trailer. Full of car chases, martial arts and gun play, this launch trailer looks like the perfect way to introduce the game for the last time before release. Sleeping Dogs is due to be released on the 17th August for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.

Square Enix To Re-Brand As Square?

Many RPG fans have complained that Square stopped being able to make good RPGs ever since they merged with Enix and became Square Enix.

While this isn’t strictly true in my opinion (Star Ocean: The Last Hope) its possible these words have stung Square Enix as they have trademarked the name Square in what could be part of a re-branding effort.

Alternatively the trademark could simply be the protect the Square name from someone else coming in and using it.

Even if it is true it’ll take more than a name change to win back fans who’ve felt burned by recent Square Enix efforts, especially in the Final Fantasy franchise.

The Five WORST Final Fantasy Games

It’s no secret that Final Fantasy is one of my favourite game franchises. Hell, just check out the About Us section and I have Final Fantasy VII listed as my favourite game ever. It was FFVII (the first FF game I ever played incidentally) that directed me down the road of the RPG gamer that I have become. However I’m not so blind in my Final Fantasy fandom to deny that there’s been some clunkers in the series – because there has – especially amongst the more recent titles.

With that said here is my list of the worst Final Fantasy games so far up to Final Fantasy XIII.

There may be spoilers below so BE WARNED!

Note: I am only including the “mainline” titles in the Final Fantasy series, so no X-2, no Dirge of Cerberus, no Crystal Chronicles, and definitely no smegging MMORPGs.
