Don't get too excited yet, but there is a glimmer of hope.

Six times fans had to fix games

Sometimes the only person fixing a game is a modder. Here are some of the games that you really need mods if you are going to play them.

NieR: Automata apparently saved Platinum Games

NieR: Automata wasn't just a great game, it might have saved a studio as well.

Fight the Square Enix and Platinum Games CEO in new Nier Automata DLC

Nier: Automata was well received upon release, and has been selling pretty well with over 1 million copies of the game being shipped worldwide. Square Enix seems to be happy with the results, and have now green lit some DLC for the already beefy game. The DLC is called 3C3C1D119440927 and will release in Japan on 2 May for 1 500 Yen (about R185) and in the US and EU territories at a later unannoun...

Opinion: Japan has returned, and the gaming world wasn’t ready

2017 will be remembered as the year Japan made its comeback. While the quality never diminished, it seems that this year the world decided to take notice. Yakuza 0, NieR: Automata, Nioh, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Persona 5, have all returned Japan to the forefront of gamers’ minds. Go to any message board across the internet and it’s likely you’ll come across fa...

NieR: Automata’s strong sales on PC and Directors dreams of Vita 2

NieR: Automata is one of those games that broke through the niche barrier often found with Japanese titles. A weird, off-the-wall action game with a female lead in outlandish attire would usually be adopted by a small audience but director Yoko Taro’s latest game has already become a success. This is both critically (check out our review here) and now sales wise. According to SteamSpy, a website d...

Review: NieR: Automata (PS4)

2B or not 2B. That is the question.

The Burning Question: Do you think the JRPG genre is popular in South Africa?

Ever since my childhood I’ve loved and played video games, just like most of you. And just like everyone I do favour some genres more than others, none more so than the JRPG genre. The emotionally gripping journeys they take us on and the dream worlds that they allow us to travel to, no matter how dark or colorful, is something I treasure. They embed into the player the sense of honour, just...

NieR Automata’s “Death is Your Beginning” launch trailer sets a beautiful tone

NieR Automata is closely upon us! The sequel to one of the most overlooked gems of the seventh generation is releasing locally in just two days. Publisher Square Enix decided to unload a final launch trailer to remind everyone why they should give this game a chance. The trailer shows off some of the accolades the game has been getting from reviewers, which has been pretty good. The combat, which ...

Video: NIER Automata not on your radar? This trailer might change that

Yes fellow gamers, March is promising to not only murder our wallets, but completely make a mocking of most years in gaming. There are an endless supply of games launching in the next month with classics such as Horizon Zero Dawn, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (including the Switch hardware), Ghost Recon: Wildlands and Mass Effect: Andromeda all dropping in close proximity. This leaves N...

TGS 2016: February is going to be a busy month for Japanese game fans

JRPGs and Japanese games in general have been woefully scarce this generation. While there were some light offerings, the AAA JRPG scene has been remarkably quiet and barebones with every game we get excited for being delayed or released far off into the future. Sony has always been the haven for fans of Japanese games, but even they have been having almost no presence for JRPGs in the West. But a...
