image for Final Fantasy 7 Remake files and folders reference a Steam release

One year and eight months after its PlayStation 4 release, Final Fantasy 7 Remake finally made it to PC, available on the Epic Games Store and only the Epic Games Store from December 16.

Have a look in the game files, however, and you'll find a Steamworks subdirectory under Engine/Binaries/ThirdParty.

Here that ID is in the unofficial SteamDB, where the staff have already labeled it Final Fantasy 7 Remake.

Running around the slums area I see framerates momentarily drop by 30 fps, even with a GTX 3080 and other specs well above the Final Fantasy 7 Remake system requirements.

I didn't play the original until I was an adult, however, so I don't have any of the nostalgia that made Fraser recently declare that Final Fantasy 7 Remake took a dump on his childhood. »

An 8-year-old Boston terrier is being hailed as a real-life hero after alerting his owners that their 9-month-old baby was in need of help.

Jeff and Kelly Dowling of Connecticut said that while their daughter slept in her nursery Tuesday night, their dog, named Henry, began acting strangely, repeatedly barging into the nursery and waking the baby.

"He was head-butting the door open and going into her room and standing there," Kelly Dowling told "Good Morning America." »
