Final Fantasy VII Launches Tonight

If you’ve wanted to play the 1997 RPG Final Fantasy VII on a device that fits in your pocket and you don’t dig Sony’s pair of portables, your wait is nearly over. The game, which is one of the most popular RPGs in the history of the medium, is launching on iOS tonight. While you wait, check out the first hour or so of gameplay above, and Touch Arcade’s first impressions:

I’ll just leave you with this: Love it, hate it, or never played it, Final Fantasy VII is an iconic RPG. It’s one you need to play, and one that’s worth revisiting, even if you only play it long enough to get the inescapable twinge of nostalgia when Aeris’s theme plays.

The Gamevice is the Best iOS Controller I've Used to Date

Destructoid’s Chris Carter is a big iOS gamer, and he’s just posted about his favorite iOS controller — but there’s a catch or two. First, it costs $100, and second, it only works with the iPad Mini. But if you have a spare benji and an iPad Mini, here’s what he has to say:

The thing I was most impressed about with the Gamevice was the look and feel. Surprisingly, even though it looks like an old-timey exercise device, it’s incredibly sturdy and comfortable to hold. The iPad snaps in and out pretty easily, and I didn’t feel like any damage was being done to my device in the slightest. All you have to do is stretch out the handles a bit, slide it in, and push.

Galactic Keep

Galactic Keep Gets a Slight Delay

Update: Gilded Skull reports that the game got a super-expedited review and is expected to launch tonight without the crash bug.

Original text:

It was so close and yet so far away. Developer Gilded Skull has found a “critical bug” in the Apple-approved version of Galactic Keep and has decided to fix the bug and resubmit, hopefully with an expedited approval process. Gilded Skull’s Rob Lemon said in an email:

“The bug was small and hard to trigger but it caused a crash. We’ve worked on the game too long to send it out into the world with a crash issue.”

So look for the game soon, but not tonight.
