Volgarr the Viking is headed to PS4 and Vita with Cross-Buy

Volgarr the Viking is a prime example of how old-school design never stopped being fun. There are a bunch of cheaply-placed pitfalls and the difficulty curve is a lot more front-loaded than I'd like, but besting the game's obstacles is an i...   read

Never played Nier, because I got put off by the different regional versions Would it be worth playing the EU-PS3 one, even though some douche spoiled me on the main twist?
