    Pre-ordered at EB and am just now seeing that you only get the t-shirt if you pre-ordered off the Squeenix website or if you're in the UK. EB/Gamestop get some lame-ass download code for some fluff item that you'll probably replace after 10 minutes of gameplay.

    Shirt looked cool as hell too. Oh well.

    Same here. Playing Horizon, have to finish FFXV, FF Type-0, and Uncharted 4. Not to mention I haven't touched Dishonored 2 yet. Don't think I'll get to Nier for about 6 months lol.

    Your loss, guys

    I have a HUGE backlog and I was trying to finish GTA V for the first time. But I bought the JP version of Nier, played 56h in about 8 days, got the platinum and now I'm playing Horizon, wich looks AMAZING on my PS4 Pro and 4K TV.

    Maybe someday I'll return to finish the story in GTA V

    I need to scoop this and Horizon up for my PS4. I have been focusing on my new custom built gaming PC for the past 2 months that I have neglected these 2 awesome games!!

    You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.

    This game is such a treat. Just sliding around in the desert sand is silly fun.
    I actually died twice in the first level on Hard smh. I guess I'll be playing this on Normal, but I'll definitely try a Very Hard run the next time around.
    Horizon has me by the balls though. I'll be jumping back and forth between that and this. Two 50+ hour open-world RPGs. Jesus Christ...

    Not even sure if it's a spoiler to get her to look like that but anyway.
    There's an option to self destruct, only her skirt blows up then you can heal your health and play looking like that.

    So um at the start you have to go through the whole fucking demo before you can even save once? Or did I miss a save spot somewhere?

    I fucked around and died cause a nigga wanted to stop playing and save that shit lol. Fucking game making me start over from the beginning from a so called save spot lol. Fucking platinum.

    Edit: yup you have to go through the entire demo before you reach a save lol. I just wanted to try it out and ended up wasting time on something I already beat for free XD

    Yes, don't forget that you have to MANUALLY save everytime, the game doesn't auto-save at all.

    In any case, you can always pause the game and put your PS4 on Rest Mode, so you can always resume your game from the exact point you left off.

    Anyone tried playing this with arcade stick? Got through the demo with a custom set up on the Hori Silent. Works great for me but had to play on normal to keep lock-on button available. It seems to have an articulated camera anyway but lock-on is useful for firing projectiles

    Just finished it. I am not 100% sure how I feel about it, the was some stuff I liked and some stuff I didn't really like at all but I think it was good. I definitely need a break from it, but I might not pick it up again. Which isn't to say that it's bad, just I'm fairly satisfied I guess

    I now has two copies of NieR:Automata due to Amazon coming through with delivery in a relatively, timely fashion, lol.

    Picked-up a copy on Tuesday 2Bsday at a local game store, thinking possible later delivery by Amazon, like with some other games that released in the beginning of 2017.

    Welp...
    It looks like the 2 copies of NieR:Automata will go well with the 2 copies of Nier that I have, lol.

    26 endings, one for each letter of the alphabet

    To be fair, only A trough E are true endings, and maybe Y because you really have to work for it.

    All the others are joke endings with basically just a few lines of text.

    Only 4 hours in so far.
    Just finished the City Ruins Goliath battle. The carnival boss was amazing too!
    I have to admit, if it weren't for the art direction this game wouldn't look very good to me. Cutscenes and action look great, but running around in the sandbox leaves some to be desired. Maybe I'm spoiled by Horizon Zero Dawn - 30fps versus Automata's 60fps.

    No other complaints right now. This is truly a gem. When I used self-destruct 9S's shorts came off as well. :lol:

    It's not the framerate (because honestly, I would kill for 60fps Horizon). It's that Horizon and the Decima engine have what may be the most robust inverse kinematics solution of any game engine at the moment which allows them to run very fluid, elastic movement and interaction (for example, you don't have to stop, then start moving again, to do things on the move).

    I'm starting the game. The manual save really fucked me over. I initially started on hard and I had to switch to normal knowing I can get one hit killed by bosses and I did not want to play through the shump section every time I died. Damn you Yoko Taro

    This game really hammers into you that it has no auto-save. Fucking nags you about it when the subject comes up. Having manual saves is kinda nostalgic so I don't mind.

    Same thing happened to me Hawkingbird. I switched back to hard after my first save point.

    Also don't forget what I said about losing chipsets. If you lose a good set on hard, swallow your pride and retrieve it on easy

    Here it is:
    You have to complete the whole Emil side-quest, defeat Emil on its first form. Get all the weapons in the game to Level 4, find him again and fight the Emil heads on the desert (Level 99 Boss) and then let them explode, you can stop them from exploding, but then you'll be locked out of Ending Y for good on your save file

    It's important to note that the game runs so much better on PS4 Pro, sadly.

    Not only Pro has higher resolution (1080p vs 900p) but it also has better AA and also less drops on framerate

    Can't wait for PC release. Sucks ME: Andromeda comes out a few days after. :(

    I know they discussed releasing some possible DLC, for those of you that have played the game, what kind of DLC would you like to see? Wonder if they can add a Bloody Palace type mode and maybe a Style combat ranking system, idk.

    Just finished route A. The story isn't even remotely in the same league as the first game. Seems like with this one they gave you less content in the main quest to make you replay it multiple times where as the first Nier was a complete game even if you only completed it just once. Game was pretty good though but I'll probably put it on the shelf for now and pick it up later when there is a game drought.

    Your choice but I'd recommend keep playing. Things change significantly more in terms of the next playthrough than they did in the first game. ESPECIALLY after you reach ending B.

    @Disciple of Ryu

    Yeah, you are judging it too quickly. The game isn't even about what it makes you think is the point by the end of A. Same with the original Nier honestly. Not saying you'll like it, but it's in the same league easily

    got it, playing it and...............

    I'm lovin it. I was scared at first thinking,"how they gonna go in so many directions in one game?" Well, looks like they found a way to do it and make it work. It just seems to do everything well IMO. Nothing new, but it does all of these things we've seen before and it does them as well as anyone else has. The biggest difference is that no other game has done all of them at ONCE. Of course, there's the little matter of 2b's........................"B". :rofl: I'm going to enjoy watching the oceans of salt from the whining hordes who'll complain about this character. The makers of said game have already made it clear that they don't give a fuck, so let them beat their fists on the wall of money that'll stand between him and them. I hope the Emil mask becomes the new troll face just for them. in fact, I hope we can get the Emil head in the game.
