I absolutely love Final Fantasy VII – the original, Dirge of Cerberus, Advent Children. But by no means am I an expert on all of the Final Fantasy games, nor do I consider myself a hardcore gamer. So going into this, know that this review is based on my passion for this game and these characters, and not a big fancy gamer review.
Now that we have that out of the way –
The Final Fantasy VII Remake released Friday, which was a much needed mental break for me during all the stress of the coronavirus and quarantine. I began Friday evening and finished up Wednesday morning with the main storyline.
When Pokemon Go came out, I joked about only playing if they made a Harry Potter version. Well, ladies and gents. MY WISH CAME TRUE.
The last two weekends, I’ve wanted to do some mini trips to comic shops, etc. And, the last two weekends, the weather has decided to snow a ton and keep me cooped up in the house.
I’ve had a fascination with Bendy and the Ink Machine for a few months, now, with an intense desire to play it. When I learned they were releasing a console version, I was ecstatic and happy to wait for it’s release – especially with the promise of all five chapters being on it not long after the release of chapter five.
I finally got the game a week ago, and beat it yesterday morning.
Now, if you haven’t heard of Bendy & the Ink Machine, here’s the basic concept:
You are Henry, former animator at Joey Drew Studios, coming back to the studio at the request of Joey himself. Upon arrival, you can tell things aren’t quite normal. Ink everywhere. Bendy cut outs lurking around every corner. And then, of course, there’s the Ink Machine. As you progress, and fall further into the inky world, things become more twisted, and you realize just how dark things have gotten since you left.
