A lot of the comments here have gotten me emotional, but this one really set off the waterworks. Thank you.

My work at my next outlet will be more industry- and business-focused and less about playing games and writing about them, so I don’t think the FF retrospective can continue there. But I do have dreams of writing a book about Final Fantasy one day. We’ll see!

Well first of all, I warned you not to scroll down here! Tons of people in Europe and Australia have been playing the game for over a week and some have even asked me to give them a place on Kotaku to talk about the ending, which is worthy of discussion. So here is that place.

Good question. So, yes. Final Fantasy VII Remake is completely accessible to people who haven’t played the original game... until the last chapter. At that point, it’s hard to follow even if you have finished FFVII — if you haven’t played it at all, the ending will be incomprehensible. Read more

I don’t want the comments of this review to have any spoilers, but I’ll do some sort of post on Friday in which we can all talk about the whole game.

I dunno yet! I love going to E3 and can’t imagine not going, but between the ESA doxxing and our company’s current... situation I’m not sure what I’m gonna do.

Yeah, my best advice for following the podcast is to subscribe using your podcast app of choice, or follow me/Kirk/Maddy on Twitter. Cause who knows what’s gonna happen?

I’m playing through Cold Steel 2 as we speak on PC and will check out CS3 next year when it comes to Switch! It’s hard to play a 70-hour JRPG on the PS4 when your apartment has just one TV and your wife likes to use it too.

Obra Dinn was last year! It was my favorite game of 2018, hands down. I wish I could wipe my memory and play it again.

Yeah I have no idea why it’s so opaque - the process is basically “someone on the staff happens to see your comment and think to un-grey you.” Given that we’re understaffed and reporting/writing/playing games/editing all day, none of us actually have the desire or bandwidth to spend much time looking for commenters to Read more

Our parent company is a mess and the comments barely even work these days, so I’ve been checking them less (which is a bummer, because I love engaging with Kotaku readers) - you’re ungreyed now if it helps!

Yeah, I’m ribbing a multi-billion-dollar publisher for being misleading in its PR. If you don’t like that, there are plenty of more PR-friendly reporters and websites out there to follow!

I like to think that one of the cool things about Kotaku is that you can come here for more information than you’ll get from a publisher’s press release. This is a good example of that. It’s not necessarily controversial or explosive info — it’s just context that you won’t find anywhere else.
