Gaming Den

Hey, Hey, Hey, Everybody
Welcome to the Gaming Den

There are many forms of fast transportation in video games from Side-Strafing in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, to sports cars in GTA, but one of the silliest forms of transportation would have to be the Boar in Nier.

The first part of this silliness is how you first get the chance to ride this Boar. In the town near by a citizen complains that there is a boar causing havoc and requests you to subdue it, and to collect it's tusk. Once you do so the citizen explains that with the tusk you are able to ride boars in the area. So, all it takes to ride a boar is to have a boar's tusk, No training required, that is just plain silly.

Ok then, so now you are able to ride boars in the area which is great since the plains is so large. But you are also able to charge in to the wildlife and shades that are in the plains as well along with the unwieldy movement that the boar has.  Everything about this boar just seems like the developers threw it in the game for laughs.

If you would like to know more about Nier head over to my previous post here to read up on a little of the backstory.

Tune in Thursday's at 9pm to listen to The Ravanator for Video Game Music from Nier on wnjr.org or 91.7 FM
