Nier's OST Is Like Chocolate Melting On The Tongue of God

   0


I have a theory about Nier (in the Gestalt flavor, at least): Square Enix and Cavia had to decide between making the game visually attractive or making it sound like a heavenly cacophony. They decided this fate with a simple coin toss. Heads - it would be visually stunning, Tails - it would be an auditory orgy of sonic goodness the likes of which no video game has ever been subjected to. If you've heard any of Nier's two-disk soundtrack, you already know how that coin toss ended.

I could sit here and type out how awesome-awesome-awesome I think this soundtrack really is or you could just click on the youtube vids below and decide for yourself (while Youtube allows it). note:

Dtoid's bbcoder is giving me the usual 'Assertion failed: bad pk' error...so it'll just be links to youtube. Sorry! >_<

About Moi:

The funkily-spelled term 'ikiryou', per Wiki, 'refers to a spirit that leaves the body of a living person and subsequently haunts other people or places, sometimes across great distances'. Now replace the word "haunts" with "annoys". I like more game types than I can think to post here, which makes for an awful backlog of epic proportions. The picture below is a poorly 'shopped representation of me holding my backlog list.



I've been gaming since Defender was only available in an arcade. The first video game I can remember playing (non-arcade) was a Defender clone on some sort of godawful Tandy computer. It could've been a Trash-80, I'm unsure since it was middle school. Then my parental units bought me several LED/LCD-based handheld/tabletop games (Pac-Man and Zaxxon) which were totally not actual video games.

Around the same time I discovered goth/heavy metal/thrash/new wave music, which I thought my parents considered a loud tool of Satan(!). So I naturally consumed it like tasty unrefined Red Lyrium and turned into a frothy-mouthed red demon or something.

I am currently demoniacally possessed by an Xbox, PS2, PS3, Xbox360, a PSP(slim, CFW 6.61), a pearl-white DS Slim, a Vita, and the New 3DS XL...and an ungodly backlog which I've *totally never mentioned before* in this profile.
