First Scenario of Final Fantasy VII Remake Finished

The latest issue of Japanese weekly gaming magazine Famitsu has revealed that Square-Enix has already completed the first scenario of the Final Fantasy VII Remake.

While the use of the term “scenario” can be taken many different ways in English – and could be misread as either scene or even episode – the Japanese use of the word is effectively a synonym for script or screenplay. So, by “first scenario”, we can assume that whatever will constitute the first part or episode of Final Fantasy VII Remake’s multi-part release is now set in stone, meaning that we could soon discover how much of the game we will be getting in the first release.

More information regarding this first scenario has emerged through Hachima (via Siliconera):

  • Players will be able to explore all the areas of Midgar.
  • Biggs, Wedge, and Jessie will get more character development.
  • The amount of parts or episodes is as-yet-unknown.
  • Potential online features are yet to be decided.
  • FFVII Remake will use Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4.
  • The team is getting technological assistance from the Kingdom Hearts team.
  • Cloud’s auditory hallucination scenes are being shaped up to be more meaningful.
  • The voice cast from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children will return.
  • The team will implement a new ATB Gauge and Limit Break system.

Minecraft Gets a Pip-Boy Gadget in New Post Apocalyptic Mod

A lot of hype has been going around with Bethesda’s new Fallout title. While fans eagerly await the official announcement of Fallout 4 and endlessly watch its newly released teaser trailer, you may also want to know that there is a new post-apocalyptic mod in the works for Minecraft that comes with a Pip-Boy. So if you want to get into the Fallout hype and are a Minecraft player, you may be interested in this new mod.

The mod, named Project Wasteland, received a video earlier this week. It showed what players would expect from it and how the Pip-Boy works in Minecraft’s world. From the looks of it, it really does seem pretty similar to Fallout’s version in terms of look and feel, as well as interaction.

There have been a few pics showing the mod’s post apocalyptic scenario, accompanied by a video that illustrates the day and night cycle of the environment. From my point of view, the mod really does have a lot of potential and strangely, by watching the video, it does make you feel more like in a Fallout game rather than in a Minecraft environment.

More detailed information about the mod is scarce at the moment, but its developers are bound to release more information soon. Maybe even before the official Fallout 4 announcement at E3. In the meantime, you can head on over to the mod’s forum page for more information. So what do you think? Will you give this mod a try?
