As the Shinra building is under attack, you are tasked with protecting Hojo, the scientist who is likely to be the target of the attack. Upon entering Hojo’s lab, you will find several machines with buttons on them. Interacting with these gives you the option to press the buttons, but you may be wondering if you should press the buttons and what they will do in Final Fantasy VII Crisis Core.
