    I think the game went too heavy on the bullet hell segments. They were perfectly peppered in during Route A.

    I was really disappointed with that aspect really. I bought this expecting a Platinum action game, and then I spend like 50% of the time playing Gradius

    9S is my favorite character in the game, but Yeah, the shmup parts felt a tad bit overdone for the most part. I mean later in the story, you get more of a variety of maps to play on, but a few power ups(like that certain part of the game) would've made it more tolerable.

    The Hacking button in general is a cool idea, but it should've been more options instead of just holding the button, or dash cancelling to get damage. The hijack plug-in chip should've added a perk where, according to the machine level, can have an enemy as an assist for a short period of time( and let it stack on how many hijack chips you have).

    Other than that Nines is the man, weapon set cancels with great sword and lance is the shiznit

    I really liked the shump parts of the game. Only the hacking mini got me annoyed and only because of how often I did it.

    I definitely had more fun with 9S personally, though Berserk mode was a ton of fun too lol

    9s is simply overpowered IMO. Pure wreckage with the hack damage. Still, 2b swords on max ain't nothing to mess with.

    Are there any really cool out of the way things I should do with this game before I get rid of it?

    I already know about
    final form Emil
    But I don't think I can be bothered to grind another 30 levels post game just to do that one thing. Just wondering if there's anything else.

    I'm hoping for later DLC as far as those doors go. I want something horrible to be waiting behind those doors.

    I bought this game because it looked like my type of game...but I never heard about or played the first Nier.

    So far it's fun but I just got to the resistance camp and man the overall theme and the camp music is depressing as fuck.

    Is this how the rest of the game is like? I have no motivation to continue right now. Should I keep playing?

    It's the least of a downer of all his games, but if you can't hang with stories like that it won't get any better.

    I mean, I think it's an interesting story and a great game, so I think it's worth it, but I get where you're coming from if you wanna stop
  • eviljevilj Joined: Posts: 4,881 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    I think this camp just reminds me of the Corel prison from final fantasy 7, and that was a depressing place too . I'm gonna power through because I've heard this game is a master piece .

    If you're gonna do that, make sure to actually see all the main endings then. It's a long game, 50-ish hours, so keep at it.

    I'm gonna tell you straight up that you're gonna get the feels before you get to your first ending.
    .............And there is more than one ending.

    No, it's...
    The one where the big robot destroys the city and resistance base because you try to go around and do other things (such as go to the amusement park).

    To be honest (No pun intended) if this hadn't happened in this particular game, I would've been surprised.

    How is the level scaling in subsequent playthroughs? I'm in the middle of doing route B and am wondering if I'll be able to do it without doing any sidequests. So far, enemies seem to have moved up to 10 levels above me (from being equal, or just 1 or 2 above), and I'm beginning to feel that I'm getting by simply due to my chip setup (damage and making myself heal while dealing damage and healing).

    I didn't really do any sidequests when I played, I also skipped enemies that didn't need to be killed. At one point (at the beginning of route C?) I felt very underleveled, killing basic enemies took too long and some enemies one shot me even with the maximum amount of health bonus from chips. But just continuing to complete the main story brought me back to their level pretty fast.

    About the only thing I really noticed is that you'll get ganged up on more. with 9S it really doesn't make much difference because of haxor kill skill, but it will for A2. Your oportunities to smash something up isn't as frequent, so hit when you can and scoot.

    Catching up on levels since I put two exp up chips. Also, surprisingly find myself doing well against lvl 50 opponents at lvl 37. The two damage up chips and offensive and deadly heal+ chips seem to be doing their job.

    Take the offer. It's the proper way to progress the fight.
    It's possible to beat the credits without it but it's ridiculously difficult, Marketing team is the difficulty spike point where you're intended to get stuck.
