Final Fantasy VII
Square Enix (original)
Shinra Inc. is the most powerful organization in the world thanks to their energy-harvesting technology. But a group known as AVALANCHE vows to destroy the Mako Reactors and protect the Planet. Cloud, a former member of Shinra’s elite military, is hired by AVALANCHE, but he has no interest outside of getting his money.
OK, I should be playing other games, but sometimes, you get the urge to go back to an old favorite. So it’s time to revisit my first RPG: Final Fantasy VII.
Or should I say… “revisit”.
You see, ever since I saw Sega Chief’s amazing New Threat mod, I knew I had to play it. While there are several other good mods (which I have yet to play), New Threat is more than just throwing in extra bosses or limiting powerful abilities. It’s a mod which has heavily retooled some aspects of the story and the gameplay: Materia changed, new character-specific abilities, story edits, and more. I’m playing version 1.5 for this runthrough.
So even if you’re waiting for Remake, come along and see another side, another story of how the Planet was saved… hopefully. As long as you don’t mind spoilers of course because I will be mentioning stuff in the entire Compilation occasionally.
Yes, I will be uploading parts of my playthrough. I hope the videos play smoothly, but if you wonder about any lag or slowdown in the videos, please note I do not have a graphics card. I don’t think they turned out too bad considering.
Reasons for doing a diaries series for Final Fantasy VII New Threat: #1, #3, #5.
