    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

    Square Enix and Platinum team up to make one of the best Action RPGs of 2017.

    Now I am not a huge fan of Square Enix and their practices (i'll get into that in a later review), but I will admit they do make some great games. Putting a massive emphasis on the word "some".NieR Automata released last... Read Full Review
