Nier Replicant is dropping next week, so here’s why its revolutionary sequel is worth your precious time.
Enjoyed so far the time I've played it, but with a huge backlog and a other games I've been playing with friends/family, not to mention open-world fatigue, I haven't sank as much time into the game as I want to as with most games in the backlog. (I think when there's one particular game leaving XBGPU I'll put extra effort, like with Indivisible and Bloodstained: RoTN), other than that I try to spread my time between a few, and like I said, it's a quite enjoyable game when I play. I have the Japanese version and using the Japanese dubs. Great voice acting, story is unraveling so far in a way that creates a contained rather narrative than expanding on the past, so far, at least since I haven't played the original (so that's actually good). World seems interesting enough and well done artistically, I love a post-apocalyptic environment, especially when it's mysterious. I love the combat system so far, with plugin-chip modifications with sets(And weapon) and for the pod, freeze or quick-style usage of "potions". I feel like the variance of enemies so far are only entertaining in that it's a new enemy, but doesn't pose a threat.. while regular enemies can be hard at times if not paying attention, it's just easy come easy go, and occasionally times I will die when not watching my health. But the bosses/mini-bosses have been pretty fun AF, I had to change my setup a lot to make it easier, and I'm only playing on normal. However, I don't die often with the bosses, either, It's pretty manageable with the range of customization they have implemented, which is why I feel it's well done.(or you can grind away at it with base) .
It's an OK game. Alot of people make this out to be some sort of masterpiece, it's not. It's enjoyable when you're playing as 2B and A2 but 9S is easily the worst part about this game and half of the time you will spend it playing as him... Wish someone had told me that before I started.
i mean .. its really close to be a masterpiece. sure, opinions differ, but i liked 9S's hacking system. sure u play with him alot more than with 2B and A2, but he is also the most complex character out of the 3. to say its an ok game cause of one thing .. i mean. sure, your opinion then.
There is nothing complex about 9S... He's literally an embodiment of todays simp who goes batsh*t over his queen. In fact I would say 2B is more complex than him because of what she has to do.
The gameplay is not as much a highlight of the show as the story is.
The game is brilliant, I just finished it a few weeks ago on Series X with gamepass. Kind of sad that it went this long under my radar, but it was worth the wait to play it in 4k 60fps.
Pretty good post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed reading your blog posts. Any way I'll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you post again soon. opjee.com
because its amazing. the story, the music and the gameplay are fantastic.
Fix the Steam version and I'll buy it
Played it on the PS4 Pro when it was released & I enjoyed it. I'll be buying Nier Replicant this Friday to play on my PS5.
Playing this one caused me to pre order Replicant on Series X as well. One day before my birthday will it release, as if to be like it was nature intended. Hope you enjoy it, I have never played the original before myself. For the glory of mankind!
I coincidentally downloaded it and tried it today on gamepass and it's awesome.
I'm in the minority that just couldn't get into it. It's not the sort of game I'd normally buy but, yeah, being on gamepass I gave it a try. I played for awhile, but I just really wasn't having fun.
Platinumed Automata when it came out but it’s one of those majorly overrated games. The graphics are PS3 standard, the gameplay is repetitive as hell if you want to complete the game 3 times for the real ending, there is no world map and you aren’t sure what you’re meant to be doing most of the time.
