So as some of you might already know there was a concert in japan for Nier Automata a few months back and in it there was an original story that concludes the events of the game. So due to the love and support of the original english voice actors 2b and 9s it was transcribed and they performed a radio play of it.

Here it is:

That should have been in the game.  It makes it much easier to understand what happened.  Also more satisfying of an ending.  I want that for a DLC.

It's great of them to do that.

I saw that the voice actors for 2B and 9S also streamed the game together and became friends IRL.  That makes me like the characters more for some reason.

Route B spoilers I guess

Did anyone beat the secret boss

Emil
on their first run through of B or can you come back to that on another route/chapter select?

Being lvl 46 vs a 99 has me dodging the whole time while doing 2 damage
You can get back to that later, I think it'd be pretty much impossible to do it without it after a certain point.

That half hour when 2B and A2 are battling simultaneously and going up the tower. Epic.

There's a lot I didn't like about this game, partly due to personal taste and partly due to cultural differences, like the really overwrought emotional writing which at times felt way too much or inappropriately shoehorned. Some of the endings made me eyeroll. But overall this is still a masterpiece. I felt things.

Watched a review of this game, expecting it to be shit.

Looks pretty decent. Might buy.

Edit: holy fuck 60 euros. I'll wait for a sale or some shit. :holeup

Releasing around the same time as BotW and Horizon, this game still resonates with me the most.   The intensity and all out mind fuckery really made a much more memorable experience than those other two games.
And LAWD dat OST!!   :lawd

Wonder if the re-release will fix the PC version's issues. :thinking

Also if 2/2019 is when 2B will be available in Soul Calibur VI.  :thinking :thinking

Nah, the DLC was pretty trash. A couple of cosmetic items, a Colosseum mode, and a couple of new side quests. Highly skippable.

Another meta message from Yoko Taro about DLC.
The robots and Androids get exploited by colosseum runners  :thinking

This new version will probably end up missing an ending or something.

Finally got around to playing this, wrapped up third run/C earlier.

i really liked it, although kind of expected it to be more 'out there' than it ended up being based on everything i have seen online. i probably should have spaced it out and did run C a week or so after B instead of just powering through (i had taken a few weeks between A & B).

i was kind of ready for it to be done towards the end, once dying became final again the occasional cheap death went from kind of annoying to infuriating. not sure if others found there to be a big difficulty spike...the tower was pretty great though. looking back on all three, they really made the most of their budget.

areas looked great, game has a good style (very Ico though), fantastic soundtrack.

ended up with D but skipped the credits. i should have gone with other option, but can run through stage on easy or something eventually i guess :lol

looking at all of the endings/stuff I missed, i totally missed a few of the callbacks to the original.

It's as easy as loading into the last chapter select and selecting the option.

You get "E" after getting both routes.

There's still a bit more game in there too, there's some files and weapon stories worth reading over too.

There's more stuff with Emil, referencing both old Nier timelines, some files on what happens after Automata, and references to Drakengard 1

Game has its ups and downs, with the mid part definitely being the biggest drag, but it still feels super good to play.

My biggest problems with it are the enemies, they really don't push the combat system at all, and the open world, just feels a waste of time.

2B tho is such a great design and has godly animations.

I must be almost finished with the 'A' playthrough as a number of sidequests have been locked.

Goddamn what a game. It's too early for me to make any final judgement on it yet but this has gotta be one of the finest videogames ever made, yeah? It just feels so deliberate in its purpose and design. Yoko Taro :bow

I'll add that nothing is missable so don't feel you have to complete everything you might have missed previously in that run if it becomes a drag.

Still just picking away at the 'B' playthrough. Too tempted by all the sidequest blips on the map so it's taking me forever to get through the game. I blame UBISHIT software

This game really lingers with you doesnt it? Game of the decade for sure - possibly GOAT

The Tower is probably one of the most powerful sequences in gaming history. All tied together by an amazing song:



I've done all endings A,B,C,D,E now. Mopping up the DLC, sidequests and misc achievements now. Will purchase the grindy ones I think.
