Nier Replicant Coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC

April 4, 2020 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

Earlier this week, Square Enix announced NieR Replicant ver 1.22474487139… for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

This is an upgraded version of the original Nier, an action RPG that was released in 2010, seven years before its highly-praised sequel, Nier: Automata.

Nier had two versions when it came out in Japan, Nier Gestalt for the Xbox 360 and Nier Replicant for the PlayStation 3. The two games were nearly identical, with the only difference being the protagonist. Gestalt starred an older man trying to save his daughter, while Replicant starred a younger man trying to save his sister. All other details remained consistent across both versions.

Only Nier Gestalt was localized, for both consoles. However, the upcoming remaster of Nier Replicant has been announced for the west as well as Japan.

NieR Replicant ver 1.22474487139… will feature re-recorded audio, a new character, and other new additions. The voice actors for 2B and 9S from Nier: Automata will play a small role, although the details of this are still unknown. Fans have wondered if a remaster might introduce “Ending E,” a fifth ending not present in the original game but detailed in supplementary material. However, it’s undecided at this point if the Nier remaster will include additional endings or not.

The string of numbers included in the remaster’s title, 1.22474487139, is the square root of 1.5. The significance of this is unknown.

A mobile game called Nier Re[in]carnation has also been announced for iOS and Android. Few details about it have been revealed so far, but producer Yosuke Saito explained they are approaching it more as if it was to be a multiplatform release and are more interested in “[causing] a stir]” than making a profit.

Director Yoko Taro described Nier Re[in]carnation as “quite new and puzzling” and “a strangely startling type of game.” A western release has not been announced yet.

Finally, the Nier: Automata Become As Gods Edition for the Xbox One is now available through Xbox Game Pass, so Xbox One owners with an active Game Pass subscription can download and play this much-praised action RPG.

Composer Yuka Kitamura Confirms Elden Ring Involvement

March 26, 2020 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

Very little is known about Elden Ring, the upcoming collaboration between FromSoftware and fantasy writer George R. R. Martin.

However, composer Yuka Kitamura recently confirmed that she will be working on the soundtrack for Elden Ring. Kitamura has worked on many past FromSoftware games, being the major composer for Dark Souls III and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

She also was one of the composers to work on Dark Souls II, where she composed “The Pursuer,” “The Old Dragonslayer,” “Ruin Sentinels,” “Velstadt, the Royal Aegis,” and “Executioner’s Chariot,” as well as Bloodborne, where she composed “Ebrietas, Daughter of the Cosmos,” “Rom the Vacuous Spider,” “Watchers,” and “Maria of the Astral Clocktower.”

Since Kitamura’s response only confirms that she will be working on the game, at this point its unknown if other composers will contribute to Elden Ring’s soundtrack or not.

April 3, 2018 by Staff - Leave a comment

There’s no denying the fact that gamers end up spending top dollars on some of the most impressive gaming items that can help to enhance their overall gaming experience. Thanks to technology, there’s a wide array of things that one can buy as long as they are ready to shell out top bucks. If you’re thinking about sprucing up your gaming collection, then here’s a list of some things that you can consider investing in.

High-Speed Gaming Router

When it comes to investing in a router for gaming, there are a number of options available in the market. There are a number of factors that you need to consider before investing in a gaming router. You need a router that has a long range so that you will be able to enjoy gaming irrespective of moving around in the house. You should also look for an AC router in case you get high speed from your internet service provider. When you invest in a Wireless N router, your internet speed may be limited even if your ISP is providing high speeds. (more…)

What are the best Retro, Magical and Sci-Fi Game Bows Ever?

February 5, 2018 by Staff - Leave a comment

Who doesn’t love the good old bow and arrow in a video game? From Zelda to Crysis there’s a bow and arrow featured on just about every platform imaginable.

Retro games have bows, sci-fi games have bows, there’s magical variants and just plain weird bows. There’s a host of crossbows and there have been many attempts to make archery a fun sport on both consoles and PC’s.

The folks at have compiled a list of the best 50. If you want to see the whole list and the winners in each category, take a look at the full article here, but scroll down to see a neat graphic that shows their top 20 overall.

The Sacred Bow – Kid Icarus – The Retro King?

The favorite bow from older games is the enhanced Sacred Bow wielded by Pit in Kid Icarus. While he starts out wielding a short-range bow, the Sacred Bow lets him fire arrow much faster and farther. Pit has an unlimited supply of arrows and can use Fire Arrows to deal more damage. By the time Pit returned in Kid Icarus: Uprising, the bow was only one of many weapons he used, but in the original two games, it was his primary weapon of choice. (more…)

The Fall of Destiny 2? Why People Are Giving Up on Bungie’s Latest Title

October 23, 2017 by Staff - 11 Comments

Destiny 2 launched to rave reviews, happy customers and near-complete domination of the video-games market. It broke a number of sales records and saw its active player-base hit over 3 million users. The launch was nothing short of massive and Bungie enjoyed great success with its Destiny sequel, but this inflated success appears to short lived.

The console population of Destiny 2 is dwindling, with the player rate drop off picking up speed rapidly and showing no signs of leveling out just yet. From its peak of 3.5 million active users, the game is currently down to 1.8 million — its audience nearly slashed in half over the course of just one month.

While the game is soon to be released on the PC, which will likely see user numbers climb (briefly at least) the dramatic drop in players does make us wonder what happened to the popularity of Bungie’s big 2017 title.

So why are so many people leaving Destiny 2 and not coming back? (more…)

The Future of Visceral’s Star Wars Game

October 19, 2017 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

On October 17, EA announced the closure of Visceral Games, the developer behind games such as Dead Space, Battlefield Hardline, and Dante’s Inferno. This came as disappointing news to fans of Visceral’s titles… and also to Star Wars fans looking forward to the story-driven Star Wars game Visceral had in development.

Visceral’s Star Wars Game

We didn’t know a lot about Visceral’s Star Wars game, but what we did know was intriguing. It was a linear, story-driven action-adventure game set in between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. The creative director was Amy Hennig, most famous for her work on the Uncharted series, which led to much speculation that it would be an Uncharted-style game in the Star Wars universe.

Many fans theorized it might star Han Solo, while others viewed it as possibly the closest we’d get to the cancelled Star Wars 1313. Only a tiny amount of footage and concept art was ever shown, at E3 2016. (more…)

7 Reasons Why: You Should Play Indie Games

October 9, 2017 by Staff - Leave a comment


The number of games that are available to the public is bewildering!

On steam alone, there are 17,801 games accessible to download – that doesn’t include all the games that are exclusive for console.

What’s interesting is that the vast majority of these games on Steam are Indie Games.

Indie Studios typically produce shorter games with a small team of developers and a limited budget.

Seeing as they have less of a budget, the instalments in this genre are stereotyped to be bad quality games and therefore receive a bad reception.


While not every indie game is perfect, plenty of them offer more enjoyment and detail than some AAA games!

Who are we to tell you to play these games?! (more…)
