Skate Story Looks Transcendent!

With all of the nonsense that goes on in the games industry these days, it can be rather easy to lapse into resigned melancholy when thinking on its future. For me, I often can’t help but wonder if everything is going to wind up being subscription services like Xbox Game Pass and free-to-play cash grabs…

Lots of New Video Released for Nier Replicant ver. 1.22474487139

The Nier remake: Nier Replicant ver. 1.22474487139 (referred to as “Neir Remake” from here on), is only a couple months away from its April 23 release date. This probably wouldn’t have been all that exciting back in 2016, but then that was before Nier Automata hit the gaming scene. That game really stuck a chord…

NieR Replicant Announced for Modern Platforms

It seems the rumors that Square-Enix had big plans in store for NieR’s 10th anniversary were right on the money. Earlier this week, the publisher announced two new games for the series: NieR Reincarnation (a seemingly-new title for mobile devices) and NeiR Replicant, a remaster of the PS3 version of the game released in Europe…

Revisiting Nier: Automata

You know, it’s actually kind of crazy to me that’s already been about two whole years since I was first introduced to Nier: Automata. It’s been on my replay list ever since I finished it the first time, and I kind of can’t believe I wasn’t able to work my way back around to it…

Nier: Automata – Game of the YoRHa Is Here

It’s been about two years since Nier: Automata originally released, and PlayStation 4 owners are finally getting the all-in-one version. There wasn’t any real need to wait for this version since there’s only one piece of DLC, but better late than never, eh?

Listmas 2017: Hat’s Top 5 Games of 2017

Merry Christmas everyone! I know it’s just a touch early, but I can’t help it! Christmas is tomorrow! To be honest, I’ve been really looking forward to writing this list, but I made myself wait on it because I couldn’t think of a better occasion to celebrate the best experiences to be had this year….

Games I’m Thankful for in 2017

  Thanksgiving may be over now, but that doesn’t mean we need to stop thinking about the things we’re thankful for. With Listmas right around the corner now, I couldn’t help but think of a few games from earlier this year that I’m absolutely thankful for. This started out with so much promise and was…

For Once, More Isn’t Needed

Time and again, Nier: Automata has shown itself to be exceptionally unique among its mainstream brethren. It’s unique in its union of two seemingly unrelated styles of gameplay. It’s unique in the delivery of its story. It’s unique in its developing relationship with the player. Perhaps most importantly though, Nier: Automata is unique in that it…

Getting Spoiled is Underrated

“Oh wait, don’t talk to me about that game. I’m in full media blackout for it right now and don’t want anything spoiled.” This is a line I’ve heard many a time from a friend of mine over the last several years. They’re (obviously) very much of the sort that enjoy going into their games…
