  • Rating:7

    Another example of a critically acclaimed game I wanted to like more.

    During my last review of "Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance," I noted that there were some PlatinumGames games that I wanted to tackle before jumping into my next series marathon. While I've played a lot of PlatinumGames' t... Read Full Review

    Don't be fooled by the first impression.

    After playing the free demo when it became available it took me a few years and some convincing before I made myself play the game. Having very limited time for gaming makes picky, and Nier: Automata with its playtime an... Read Full Review

    Overrated game

    This game has had lots of excellent reviews but I just don't dig it. In essence it looks like a typical Korean art-style game - early teenage protagonists with over sized weapons sort of stuff. The setting is a mechanica... Read Full Review

    This game surprised me. I'd heard about it from just about everyone who loves JRPGs. It took me forever to finally get around to it and my expectations were sky-high.The game is a weird mix of shooter/action/RPG. It has... Read Full Review

    Weird yet enjoyable plot is the highlight of this action game.

    I can enjoy a weird story told well and it doesn't get much stranger than Nier: Automata. Nier is a game all about machines and androids with human-like emotions. In a sense the narrative uses these synthetic characters... Read Full Review

    An eighth console generation masterpiece!

    This was one of the games I got for my birthday 2018 and got the fifth and best main ending in five months. In fact that afternoon I got endings C, D, and E all together. That was how hooked I was with it and then I did ... Read Full Review

    Finding Meaning in Emptiness
