Now that I have finished both Nier games, I decided to go back and re-analyze the references and homage the FFXIV raid has to all the games. There may be spoilers for Nier games so click at your own risk! Disclaimer: These are mostly my own personal theories so there may be different approaches of how others may have seen this raid.
Well because I appear to have sold my soul to Square Enix I had already pre-ordered the remake of Nier Replicant and it was finally released last week. I’ve always wanted to play this version as it’s a prequel to Nier Automata but it was only available on PS3 and who even has a PS3 anymore? Fortunately Automata’s popularity clearly inspired Yoko Taro to make this remake a reality and I’m glad I finally got a chance to play this title. As usual, big fat spoilers after the jump so if you plan to play the game please wait until after you finish before reading the review!
