NieR: Automata is here! A game that we never thought would actually get made after the original bombed so badly, NieR: Automata is everything that we could actually want from a game, and then some. It's a work of pure genius.
This week we have a good chat about NieR, and Yoko Taro's games in general. Then we also have a chat about games that are influenced by other media - be that film, literature, or the higher art forms such as ballet, theatre, or opera.
As it's the first week of March, we also have a good chat about the games that are being released this month, and it's almost intimidating just how much stuff is coming... let alone that we have a new piece of hardware to enjoy in the Nintendo Switch!
If you like the music from the podcast this week, here's the tracklist for you:
Tell Your World - Hatsune Miku
NieR: Automata - Main Menu theme
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Main Theme
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - The Fields of Ard Skellig
