The other game I indulged in over the ANCAC Day long weekend was Nier. I doubt it's going to be a widely popular game, but I like it.
The game begins in a decaying city in the year 2049. Our protagonist is desperately trying to defend his sick daughter. It felt rather poignant to me, and I found myself caring about their plight. Wielding a length of pipe and fighting wave after wave of monsters in the snow, I felt a bit like I was experiencing a cross between Silent Hill and God of War.
