Australians have had access to Final Fantasy 7 Remake for a while now, but anyone who bought digitally – and large chunks of the rest of the world – will finally get to play this week.

It’s not the only game out this week, of course. AFL Evolution 2 gets a retail release this week – although I’ve heard some gamers were getting that one early, too – and the spiritual successor to Myst finally makes its way to consoles. Convoy looks like a neat roguelike as well.

But otherwise, it’s all about the Cloud. Here’s this week in games.

  • I really wish somehow I’d avoided that final trailer. I’m 15 hours in and am concerned it’s all near-end game content.

  • FF7 Remake is SO GOOD. Only weird thing has been the 1-2 times I got stuck on a sidequest and went to look it up I found nothing because no one else is talking about it yet.
