NieR: Automata Paris Games Week 2015 Reveal Trailer

When the first NieR came out in 2010 it was a game with far more depth than originally thought, as seen by going through the B-D endings. It far exceeded the expectations of many, myself included, and quickly became an enduring favorite for many fans. It also spawned at least one hilariously moronic review which I’m sure we’ve all heard about.

I don’t think too many people dared to hope we would ever be able to return to that world in a future game but all that changed during E3 2015 when it was initially announced and called NieR New Project and excited a legion of fans. Today during Paris Games Week 2015 a new trailer has been revealed, which is below, along with what appears to be the game’s official title, NieR: Automata. It shows off a range of enemies and scenery during combat and apparently focuses on the new character 2B.

NieR: Automata – coming exclusively to PlayStation 4. I believe no indication of what year it might even release in has been announced but I can tell you that I’m looking forward to it.

Welcome Everyone

Hello everyone, I am Boone Ironshield, avid RPG gamer, especially when I get to play as a Dwarf. I also greatly enjoy stealth games and also like LEGOs and zombies and good story based games so you might just see me playing a few of those every now and then too. I’m opinionated too but hopefully most of you do not think of that as a bad thing. I may always have an opinion on something but I’ll never be a dick about it because I know that not everyone thinks the same or likes the same things.

If you’re here then you enjoy a good RPG just like I do or you were just curious about a post I made, either way, thank you for visiting. The possible main difference between you and myself is that RPGs are something that could easily be the only thing I play.

I hope to write some reviews as well but I’m not entirely sure if I will. I’ve written a couple before and they always take a bit of time if you’re trying to actually do a good job and make it well written. Plus there are so many great games I could be spending that time on so we’ll have to see.

Anyways, I will write more as I can; I might be a little slow about it at first but feel free to check back anytime and thank you for stopping by in the first place.
