Amazing VGM: The Dark Colossus Destroys All (NieR)

Ah yes, three of my most shilled games in a row for Amazing VGM. I’d normally do something from Saya no Uta since I just reviewed it but I kinda hinted at this one last week so I better follow through. Anyway I’ve been meaning to touch on this one for a while since it really is an amazing track from an amazing game.

NieR is known for its outstanding music after all, so it’s time to cover a track that was good enough they made it twice! Starting with the original. Read more

Just a heads up, the reason the review is no longer up  this site is because it is now up on Brash Games, and I figure they wouldn’t want their content hosted elsewhere. There was a lot that I had to say about this game seeing as how it is currently in my top 3 favorite RPGs (or games in general for that matter).

NieR: Breathtaking Story, Okay Gameplay (Detailed Review) (PS3/360)

NieR | Cast

My experience with NieR was… really something. While it is pretty weak in the gameplay side of things, it really makes up for it with a very well crafted story, albeit one that has some pacing issues on the first playthrough. NieR was one of the last games by Cavia, a company that has been previously known for the Drakengard series. NieR also takes place after one of the first Drakengard’s ending D.

NieR is pretty much a game that is driven on its narrative, and it manages to hold its own well enough that it will still be a very impactful experience by the time you are done. Yes the gameplay is undeniably bland, but the overall artistry of the game makes it one that is definitely worth playing. Read more
