Final Fantasy 7 Remake has finally arrived, and our hosts have formed some opinions after spending some time with the game. Do we think this game is really a "Remake" after all, or are there some things the internet is really getting wrong in their early impressions? We discuss live with our chatters about this and other games that are staying in the news such as Animal Crossing, which comes even as the Switch supply is running shorter and shorter. What is it about this game that has everyone wanting it? We talk about all this and much more on this week's OLR!
