First released for PS4, NieR: Automata eventually came to PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

A huge fan of puzzlers. Would love to experience the world and takedown on every single and upcoming game title. In the free time love to sing, follow recent game rumors and try to decrypt them in the best possible way.
