    I purposely didn't nuke my save because I wasn't done trophy collecting. I intended to go back and replay Ending E to do it because I felt obligated after killing some other guy's save in the process of finishing the ending (I also nuked my save in the original Nier) but then decided to hold off on the chance that they did DLC for it... I thought maybe they'd make it accessible early on in the game similar to The World of Recycled Vessel in the original Nier, but alas.Edited May 2017 by Unknown

    Incredibly powerful, John. Thank you for sharing. It is interesting how games or music we retreat to during difficult times become indelibly linked with those times. Given Bloodborne's themes around pregnancy and birth I can only imagine how that conversation went.

    Like someone said in the Nier thread, this is the best time for videogames.

    Nice interview Mike. As always, it's evident that you play the game when you interview him because your questions are a lot more nuanced and specific than what I normally see in FFXIV coverage except by MMO niche sites.

    Good question about Flash! I've abandoned PLD for DRK and WAR now but I agree. Overpower and Unleash feel way better than Flash.

    Also shout out to Ryota Koduka, because SMT IV / Apocalypse's soundtracks are fire

    If you dig tough games with weird/minimal exposition that ooze style (I didn't say the DS word but you know where I'm going with this) then I highly recommend Nocturne.

    However, if you're new to the series and still need to grok the terminology ("What's a Mabufudyne?") then I'd start with a friendlier entry like Persona 3 or 4.

    And if I remember correctly Strange Journey is one of Kat's favorites, but I much prefer Persona Q as far as the more modern first person dungeon crawlers go. I beat Strange Journey, but it was a couple of dungeons too long and got really damn hard toward the end.

    @NiceGuyNeon I would personally move Resonance of Fate and Nier to the top of that pile!

    I have pretty wide gaming tastes so I've usually fallen into Option 2. My backlog can attest to that

    My wife and I just had our first kid last summer though, so I find myself with less time and money, so I'm trying to budget myself to two games a month (which is still a lot for some people but you can how I got here in the first place... baby steps.)

    I also have a problem with loving open world games but having to 100% them. I still haven't finished the Witcher 3 even though it's probably my favorite game of this generation. And everything coming out this year is open world! I'm having to make a priority order for games. Nier is an all time favorite of mine, so both Automata and Persona 5 are bumping Zelda. Horizon lasted all of one day before it was bumped by Zelda, and so on.Edited March 2017 by Unknown

    Before I clicked on the article my inner thoughts were "life is too short and I'm too old to care about metascores." Amused to see that Nadia echoed my thoughts in much funnier form. Your point about Logan is well received also. Critics in film are much less effusive and much more biting in their criticism and they are allowed to be. This manchild behavior is endemic (but not systemic--Not All Gamers) to the generation that grew up with video games and it's part of why the industry has struggled to be taken seriously in other critical spaces.

    And those are some good cats, Brent
