Eventually, you'll have to buy amazon payment cards tho



The 3 Disc set if ordered early comes with a 4th bonus disc.

Thank you for that.

Also, what do you mean? I can't just use my debit card for Amazon.co.jp?

Some payment methods and cards work, some don't. You just gotta try and find out.

Umm I don't know if my game has glitched or it's some Yoko Taro fuckery.

I'm in the middle of route B (just after flooded city) and I have noticed that in some cutscenes there are some blurry silhouettes in the background.
Like graphical glitches.
It's kinda creepy and weird.

I was like "hacking is fun but I miss the combat"

Now I'm like "the combat is fun but I wish I could just hack some of these"

Can anyone help on the Eve fight in Route B? I've hacked him dozens of times over and over again and he keeeeeeeeeeeeeeps regenerating his health. How do I end this? I've been at it for almost 10 to 15 minutes now. =|

Odd, i remember hacking him like 5 times and then he heals once and then hacked a few more times, then the ending sequence where you are moving slow and injured.

Yeah. Dunno. I've done his entire life bar damage via hacking and hacked him right before he regens but then still nothing....

Depends on your credit card and provider/bank. If you have like a Chase Visa, Amazon JP accepts it with no fuss.

Is damage even happening? each hack should remove like a quarter of this health.. I ran into some enemies on B in city ruins. Could not do any damage tho them, figured it was for a side quest or something so I left. Could have been a bug.

Yeah okay, i was glitched. So... you hack him after he regens the first time and are supposed to get the "special" hacking game where you fight a silhouette of eve in hacking space a few times then get a short dialog with adam and eve.

For some reason the first time I tried the fight it kept loading standard hacking games instead of the one that was supposed to load to continue on the story. Which just put me in an endless loop. Dying and restarting the fight fixed it.

So I've made up my mind: I'm about halfway through the Nier 1 platinum trophy, and finishing that up will require an immense amount of pain and patience. In light of this, ive decided to buy all the Automata trophies.

I'm convinced Taro put that shop in there as an apology for Nier 1's fuck-awful mat grind

9S is my favorite new character in the game. My favorite being Emil.

And yeah, hacking just seems so much quicker when it comes to dispatching enemies, especially the bigger ones.

Loved first Nier, just beat BOTW, so Automata is the next logical game before Persona 5. I have a few questions :
1) What do I need to know gameplay wise to enjoy the game at the fullest ?(except obvious things such as replaying the game several times)
2) Is the game beatable in two weeks time by playing every evening ? I fear I won't touch it again once P5 releases.
Thanks !

If you have adequate time to devote to it yeah I'd say two weeks is plenty to wring all the content out of the game.

1) Take the 'save' warning to heart. Take the message after Ending A to heart.

2) ...probably. Depending on your level of completion, it may take around 30-50 hours. Sidequests are generally great but not necessary. You can also set the game to 'easy' at any time.

Pretty linear if you want it to be. You can pretty much just focus on the main story if you absolutely need to, or just do them on your own time once you unlock fast travel . There is an open world, but it trying to be super big like its contemporaries (Horizon, Zelda, Witcher 3, etc.), it's more like Ocarina of Time's world with interconnected levels.

I like his character ,and his gameplay offered a very different experience.

But I honestly can't get over his design. He looks like a fucking child(but his role in the story is that of a full grown adult).Its ridiculous.

I wish he looked like Adam or Eve instead.Then he would be an even match to 2B.

As great as NieR is,it couldn't escape some JRPG tropes.

The OoT comparison is perfect for how this world is structured. I never really felt it was an open world game like GTA or Witcher 3.

The parade quest? Yeah, that one surprised me too.

The bright side is that you can go back pretty easily and do all of them. I even think that there's a rough form of scaling (i.e., if you're above a level threshold, it'll add more powerful bots), but don't quote me on that.

There's no scaling on the sub quests that I could notice.
