Nier Automata Review…

1387
I never played the original Nier. It released to little fanfare and didn’t look particularly interesting. Now, seven years later, we have Nier Automata, and honestly, when I first heard about it I really wasn’t bothered. I had no interest in the series (either Nier or Drakengard) and the only gameplay I saw was a generic…

Horizon Zero Dawn…

1698

“Easy to learn, harder to master” Fireballs fly through the sky while thunder cracks in the distance.  Your once powerful, ragtag group of soldiers is now just endless bodies covering a war-ridden battlefield. You’re the only one standing, armor totally drenched when suddenly, another soldier, who looks just as…

Life is Strange:…

1418
“Life is Strange,” Dontnod Entertainment‘s second game, is a cross between a visual novel and a puzzle game. I played it twice, once by myself and once with my friends making every decision while I did the puzzles. This allowed me to see both endings, but there are so…
