Expectations aside, keep up the Demands!

Abriael3795d ago

Gotta bounce em on Square Enix too though.

Thomaticus3795d ago

I don't buy "strange" games for 59.99. Unless it's Katamari Damacy!

isarai3795d ago

then you've probably missed out on some great titles

Nah nahhhh nah nah nah nah nah...


WeAreLegion3795d ago

I feel like the incestuous story proved that years ago.

isarai3795d ago

best advice ever IMO, i like his... different approach to games and even if you might not completely agree with all the oddities, to me it's some good variation and creativity to keep things fresh

Well, I recently bought Drakengard for the PS2 at a local mom and pop shop just to see what the series was about. I also have Nier, which I've heard is set in the same universe, so hopefully I can play the first and second games in time for the Western release of this game.

Going to clarify a little something for you just to show you how weird this guy is.

Drakengard (Great story, pretty bad gameplay) has multiple endings.

Nier (I think is awesome story and gameplay wise) is a product of one of those multiple endings with very very very very slight references to Drakengard.

One of the other multiple endings which is canon was used to make Drakengard 2 (Great gameplay, pretty bad story).

So by that logic Nier isn't canon but yet it exists within the universe regardless (What if? Scenario?)

Juste_Belmont3794d ago

Thanks, I'm looking forward to Drakengard, and I guess I'll go into Drakengard 2 with low expectations for the story.

Is Square’s ethics department gonna insert themselves into this one?

CrimsonWing6992d ago

They weren’t around “last time.”

isarai93d ago

Yoko Taro doesn't play that sh!t

If it can be done right then amazing, yes please. Yoko Taro seems to change it up each time so I'm curious what a 'sequel' really means.

blackblades93d ago

Either way hope he learns and give her more outfits like Stella got.

vTuro2493d ago

On a sidenote assuming this is indeed Nier 3 then I kinda wonder if Yoko Taro will stick to his guns of creating new characters and stories each time, or if he'll continue with 2B & co due to their skyrocketing in popularity. I guess he'll probably do whatever Squeenix pays him to do lol, but I'm hoping for the former. 2B and her gang got a decent enough conclusion (especially for a Yoko game) and I feel like continuing their story would ruin it.

vTuro2493d ago

Actually, now that I think about it, a new Nier game would technically be Nier 4 since the gacha Reincarnation was declared as the sequel to Automata and is therefore Nier 3.

Dirty_Lemons92d ago

Oh man, that game was a slog. Graphics and music were excellent though, and it's nice directly strongly to Automata.

Red3f1ned92d ago (Edited 92d ago )

Tifa is a good sign. There's at least some hope, lads.
Just maybe they'll leave things alone.

Plus, like people are saying - Taro don't play that sh*t.
