Fans Treated to New Footage and Gameplay of the Final Fantasy VII Remake

Earlier this year Square Enix and Sony made a big splash at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) when they showed the announcement trailer for an upcoming remake of Final Fantasy VII.

This weekend, in what seems like a pretty short span of time, we were already treated to more footage of the game. Most interesting is the tiny bit of actual gameplay in the trailer, as it definitely looks to be a departure from the classic turn-based system that the original operated on in lieu of a more current, action oriented approach. Not surprising as the franchise has largely moved away from the classic combat systems of old in favor of a more fluid approach to battle. Take a look after the jump:

Star Wars Legends: A Look at 10 of the Best Non-Canon Stories

As most of you reading this already know, when Disney acquired the rights to Star Wars, all of the previously released Expanded Universe content was discarded as not being official canon. While all that material was officially licensed by Lucasfilm, George Lucas himself didn’t particularly consider it “canon” anyways. In any case, Disney’s decision to declare all of that material as not being canon had to be so in order to allow for creative freedom for the new films.

Nonetheless, it’s still a hard pill to swallow for some so we’re going to celebrate a few of the best stories from what is now Star Wars Legends…

In 1985 Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale unleashed something incredible into the cinematic time stream. That something was a time travelling DeLorean. Of course this is when the now iconic science fiction comedy Back to the Future was released, and even though it only spawned 3 movies, it has still managed to capture our hearts and imaginations, as well as giving us a ruddy good laugh at the same time.

3 Most Amusing Things To Do In Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

With its launch several days behind us now, we can safely say by general consensus that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is a huge success. I’m currently loving just about every moment, filling in the gaps of Big Boss’s legendary story, and while the overarching story is as dark and tragic as its ever been, it wouldn’t be Metal Gear Solid without Hideo Kojima’s trademark sense of humor. Here are some of the more light-hearted (spoiler-free!) surprises in the game that I absolutely adore.

Keeping with the recent trend of movie studios developing video game franchises for the big screen, 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment are reportedly giving Mega Man the live action treatment.

The brain child of Akira Kitamura and Keiji Infune, we first met the human/robot hero in 1987 when Capcom released the first Mega Man video game for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The main series of games pit the Blue Bomber against the dastardly Dr. Wily and his army of evil robots bent on world domination.
