Anthony wants us to feast our eartubes on The Wretched Automatons.
Now, you might want to sit down for this next part. He’s about to thrown down some edumacation…
“This song is from a game called Nier, released in 2010 on the PS3 and Xbox 360. It’s about a man in a dying world who is trying to save his daughter from a terrible illness. He makes many strange friends along the way, such as a talking book and a foul-mouthed warrioress. The game has an absolutely wonderful soundtrack and the story itself is quite moving, I recommend it to anyone if they have the means to play it.
I chose this particular song because it’s one of my favorites in a soundtrack of pure gold, and it’s one I’ve drawn much inspiration from as I write my own work. But it’s also to celebrate the upcoming release of Nier’s sequel: Nier Automata, which is releasing March 10th in North America! It’s set over 1000 years after the first game, following an Android named 2B as she and her comrades are sent to reclaim the Earth from hostile machines. If you have a PS4, do check it out!”
Until next time, be wary around automatons. (Tip: They look like Arnold. All of them. Trust me.)
Good luck with your words. We’ll see you in the garage.
