The Mash Those Buttons Show #6: Final Fantasy VII Remake Thoughts and Death Stranding’s Expansion of What Games Can Be

April 16th, 2020

One show, two features. First we dive into Final Fantasy VII Remake and talk about our experiences with going back to Midgar after so long. Fans of the series will be happy know that there is more than nostalgia here, and even if you know the Final Fantasy story inside and out, there are new reasons to play.

After that we talk about Death Stranding. It was one of the most critically divisive games of 2019, but it absolutely expanded what a game can be.
