I know you're probably not trying to be negative, but I have to say that I even consider an 84 a victory. Of course I feel that it deserves the current 94, but there's no way most game critics will see this game to it's true end, and many would probably miss the point too.

I always like to look at which one needs my money the most.

For example, I gave up on buying accessories for the Switch so I could get Neir.

haven't played the first NieR (but have watched that Everything You Need to Know About NieR video the other day)

I got pretty excited when I learned this also comes to PC. The first game looked a bit rough but inspired, I'm looking forward to experiencing the craziness of the series

I never did try NieR's fishing minigame, but I'm really glad for how it is designed in Automata.

That's mean but I still laughed out loud. I actually liked the fishing. Yeah, it took a while to figure out what I was doing but it was strangely relaxing.

They would have to be completely remade to have anyone want to play them in this day and age(even DK3, even though it only came out 3 years ago, which should set off red flags)

Yet i feel like that would have them lose something in the process, even in the quest to make them much better games

Played through Drakengard for the first time last week. Working on D3 right now. That fps is rough.

I think your crazy in saying that people couldn't want to play through Nier or at least the first Drakengard today.

Contrary to what you might have head, Nier's fishing game is pretty fun and easy. Its just let down badly by the text tutorial giving incorrect instructions, and some people getting confused at the location of the first fishing spot despite the big red X on the minimap showing exactly where you need to be.

Same. I prefer it to Automata's fishing which seems a bit boring.

Most outlets got this game from Square via the traditional review copy process, so the embargo lifts tomorrow.

All these reviews are done via the Asian copy of the game released last month, that is practically the worldwide version of the game since it has Eng/Jap voice acting and text.

It will look better on the pro since the prerendered cutscenes have the same resolution of the base ps4 which is 900p.

This is correct, although in my experience it's only been a minor thing. Low res encodes for cutscenes is always the worst though

A fantastic summary. Forgot how good the writing and story was for NIER. Oh and the voice acting.

Hope Automata has strong voice direction too...puts most JRPG's to shame!

I hope so too. It is the same localisation studio doing it but the demo wasn't really anything to go by as 2B and 9S were obviously holding back their emotions. Need to see those dramatic moments.

As someone that played the entire game with English VA, it's pretty darn good, and in a few cases of emotional moments, really great. The Japanese VA might even be better from the little bit I saw, but I can say the English performance was more than good enough for me.

I heard English is better overall not for being spoken better but because there are dialogues while there is action going on so reading subtitles while fighting can cause you to miss some stuff.

So hyped for this game.

Have decided to buy it instead of Horizon or ME. Can only afford one game this month
