Final Fantasy 7 Remake: First look at Shiva

ff7 remake shiva

We can't think of a mainline Final Fantasy title where the ice queen has looked anything but comely and in the long awaited Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Shiva looks most magnificent and proves once more why she is  the best looking monster girl to appear in a video game.

The ice-based deity was at long last unveiled in the Tokyo Game Show 2019 trailer in September, which showcased both herself and the fire demon Ifrit as they appear in the game, and fans caught a glimpse of party member Aeris summoning the frosty goddess in battle to freeze several enemies.

Square Enix game producer Yoshinori Kitase confirms, each party member can only equip one Summon Materia at a time, and attacking foes causes a Summon gauge to charge up. Once the Summon Gauge is complete, players can utilise their summoned ally, which is generally controlled by the CPU but can also be instructed to use special techniques with ATB charges.

The Summon remains on the battleground until the Summon Gauge depletes, at which point the summon unleashes their ultimate attack before withdrawing. It's a system that, while significantly different from the original version in Final Fantasy VII, stays authentic to the core of what FF7 Remake summons are meant to be - loud and impactful magical abilities.

Summoned monsters are some of the Final Fantasy series most adored mascots, and they're oftentimes the only ones who make the leap between numbered instalments as the games change worlds.

To know that they'll be just as essential in FF7 Remake as they were in the original iteration is a relieving moment for those who were worried they might be demoted to a minor role.

In the original game Shiva is a blueish-skinned female with a long ponytail who casts Diamond Dust. Final Fantasy 7 Remake's interpretation of Shiva is comparable in that respect, though her outfit is much more illusive and she's been given more fae or elven-like features.

What's most intriguing about this early reveal for Shiva is because in the original game players obtained the icy summon outside of  Midgar in a port town called Junon, though it appears in the remake you gain access to her much earlier.

Shiva remains one of the coolest summons in Final Fantasy and her redesign in the FF7 remake is quite beautiful, even more so than her prototype which pales in comparison.

Fortnite - There's Booty Galore

After several days spent playing Epic’s action-focused, base building, horde-survival game, it's no secret why Fortnite is fun, addictive and full of jest. Which is nice and dandy, but something nobody is talking about are those big butts. The large behinds which accompany each female is pure unadulterated eye candy disguised as candy fluff.

With the rise of technology, jiggle physics have been given a more prominent role in video games. Now days body physics are a must have and thankfully Epic Games are well aware of this fact. Hence the reason their female characters rear ends jiggle like jelly in an exaggerated and unnatural manner when they move.

Epic Games has taken full advantage of Unreal Engine 4 and managed to produce amazing results for a game which is currently still in early access. The character models are vibrant, colourful and most importantly sexy enough to ogle. One of Fortnite's strongest points is it's 3D models and this is proven the moment you take contr…

The hottest outfits in Mario Tennis Aces

With what appears to be a comeback for Camelot Software, Mario and his friends are back and in full swing for Mario Tennis Aces on the Nintendo Switch. It marks the eighth instalment in the series and the first time since Mario Tennis: Power Tour on the Game Boy Advance to include a full-clad story mode for players to dip into.

Mario Tennis Aces looks absolutely stunning on Nintendo Switch, as does the fluid gameplay and gaudy moves, though that's not the only thing which has caught our attention. Mario Tennis Ultra Smash may have been an afterthought on Wii U, but one thing we're glad to see return are the sporty outfits for Princess Peach, Daisy and Rosalina.

While half the internet has been losing their minds over Luigi's bulge, we're infatuated with Peach's short dress, Daisy's booty shorts and Rosalina's pantyhose. Peach and Daisy have been showing off their tender legs since Mario Tennis on the Nintendo 64, but never before have the pair looked this goo…

Top 10 Nintendo Butts

Bottoms up! Regardless of what you call it—booty, junk in the trunk, donk, bootius maximus, or apple bottom, there’s no denying butts are a glorious sight in video games when shown in the perfect angle. Subtle sexual innuendos have been running rampant in Nintendo games for decades, despite their family friendly reputation. This article is a celebration of Nintendo's greatest female booties in recent years.

It's no a secret that Nintendo have been trying to attract an adult audience for quite some time now, and sexualized female characters have been appearing more frequently in Nintendo games of late. Not to say it wasn't a thing considering characters like The Great Fairy and Kate Alen existed long before, but in the year 2017 we were blessed tenfold.

Not many people will admit to admiring and ogling the derrière of a computer generated bombshell, but we couldn't resist the urge to celebrate some of the hottest and most distracting female buns in Nintendo's multifa…
