The Weekly Stuff Podcast #340 – The Final Fantasy VII Episode
It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link.
After giving some quick first impressions of Sucker Punch’s outstanding Ghost of Tsushima for PS4, this episode is fully dedicated to one long-awaited topic: Final Fantasy VII. This year’s PS4 remake, yes, but also the PS1 original, and the PSP spin-off Crisis Core, and the depressingly abysmal movie Advent Children. We talk about it all, having both finally journeyed through the complete Final Fantasy VII experience for the first time this year, diving deep into why the original remains such a unique and powerful pillar of narrative gaming despite plenty of dated elements, and why the Remake just didn’t do it for us despite its good character work and production values. If you’ve been waiting to hear us talk about Final Fantasy VII in any or all of its forms, this is the episode for you.
