It’s been over a decade, but western gamers have finally been given a chance to play the Replicant incarnation of NieR. More than that, this remaster features enough new content to make an already good game even better.
NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139...
A remaster of the Japanese only Replicant version of NieR. The title release in the west was NieR Gestalt.
Video games made their mark in helping many through another trying year, with the RPG genre providing many excellent offerings. After taking our usual month to fully digest the past year’s releases, RPGamer is proud to present our Best of 2021 awards.
It’s been a week full of news, some exciting, some alarming. Chris breaks the site…repeatedly. Kelley comes to terms with the fact mowing the lawn is hard in real life. Josh explains Japanese tabloid scandals. Anna Marie assigns a tedious task to Pascal.
It’s a tiny cast with just Chris, Anna Marie, and Kelley. PS5 blood money is being thrown around, while Kelley curses the asthma tax. Chris is simulating his real life job in a game that simulates his job. Anna Marie re-discovers she doesn’t like SMT. And everyone agrees cutscenes need both pause and skip options.
Alex, Anna Marie, Chris, and Kelley come together to discuss the news of the week. #JRPGJuly is well underway for everyone on the cast. Anna Marie makes every evil choice she can. Alex dives into Anime: The Game. Chris shouldn’t be playing Elder Scrolls Online because his arm hurts, and yet he still is? Meanwhile, we lost Kelley somewhere in the wastelands when she wandered off to hug all the monsties.
Joshua asks “Am I fighting a house?!” (spoilers: he is). Chris is on the wrong side of 40, and somehow forgets JRPGJuly. Kelley espouses “Exposure: The Cryptocurrency of Artists.” Anna Marie is teaching the whole RPGamer staff how to speedrun FF4: Free Enterprise. Yes, things got a little…weird this week.
Anna Marie, Chris, and Kelley are joined by special guest Ryan Radcliff! Chris swears every time E3 fails, an angel gets its wings. Anna Marie refuses to play games she’s in. Kelley wants to pet the cat cream roll. And Ryan is dragging around Paws’s corpse as he spins all the wheels.
Pascal falls asleep while playing every game except one. Chris knows nothing about pretty much every game. Matt needs to put some clothes on. And Josh gets a salt lick. Man this chafing sucks.
