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!

As players, we want our games to acknowledge us. More specifically, we want to see our actions make some sort of impact upon the worlds displayed on our screens.

Saturday Video Round Up: March 5 – 11
