Will has beaten Final Fantasy VII Remake, and has quite a bit to say about it. And while Drew hasn’t played the game past the demo, he has a lot of questions. How does it compare to the original? Did Square create a masterpiece?

Last week, Will and Drew didn’t have enough time to chat about The Last of Us: Left Behind, so they dive into some of their favorite moments from the short DLC. Plus, Will provides an update on Final Fantasy VII Remake, Drew reveals a new toy, and the two discuss their hopes for the upcoming Xbox Series X Gaming Event
Will and Drew are back together solo once again, and they have a ton of stuff to talk about – Drew’s been grinding away at Octopath Traveler, while Will finally beat God of War. Plus, Will’s diving in to Final Fantasy VII Remake, and Drew’s Turbo-Grafx 16 Mini has arrived!
Cue the chills. Folks, this remastered, and somewhat remade Battle Theme for Final Fantasy Remake, cannot be ignored. It’s just so triumphant! I honestly could listen to it the way one would listen to Guile’s Theme. It’s so beautifully orchestrated in every sense of the way. Not only is it insanely catchy, but it really is so fitting to even the smallest of battles. I can’t imagine any other tune at this point, and I really think it adds tremendous flair to every battle engagement.
It’s a windy day here in WDGR Land, but that hasn’t stopped the duo from chatting about games! Will continues to be enthralled with God of War, while Drew provides an update on Doom: Eternal, and what led him back to Octopath Traveler. Plus, he chats about a new purchase: The Red Strings Club.
All this, plus Final Fantasy VII Remake stuff, thoughts on mini sodas, the best breakfast sandwich, and more!
Folks. I have a lump in my throat after listening to this. For all the FF7 fans around the globe, we now have access to the new FF7 soundtrack, and boy oh boy is it grandiose! The soothing harp arpeggiators, the sweeping orchestral horns, everything about the new version of “Prelude” I think is exactly what we hoped for. It’s more. It’s just more, and sometimes more is a great thing. I’m not crying, you’re crying!
Drew woke up literally minutes before pressing record, so Will hosts this episode! The duo chats about the FF7 Remake Demo a bit more, Will getting peer pressured into buying God of War, E3 getting cancelled, the Coronavirus, and Drew losing his shit over the Command & Conquer Remastered Collection.
