I'm starting to forget that Platinum Games can actually still make good games.

isarai511d ago

Yeah, they really need to pull it together for a new banger. It's all been games at the hand of some publishers demand, licensed games, pulled in to work on games that aren't theirs, etc. Just want 1 new game from them that is wholly their idea and execution.

Astral Chain was pretty awesome.

What is it with SE and their obsession with this game , if it wasn't for the sex appeal and the internet degenerates this would have flopped and became forgotten like the rest of Yoko taro overrated trash , better invest on your abandoned IP's if you desperately want sex appeals on your games , just give Parasite Eve a chance SE

You are straight up HIGH, my dude... You clearly never played this game. There's barely any "sex appeal" in this aside from one or two easter eggs. Blowing yourself up, or angling the camera the right way. This is coming from someone that really dislikes when developers use sex appeal to sell games. It is first and foremost an existential experience. Brilliantly portraying how the psyche changes when faced with your own mortality. It is a masterclass in storytelling. I hate when people look at this on the surface and think it's just some sexual fan service game...

The thematically grim tone, the story, the music, the constantly changing gameplay systems and the dynamic camera angles are what sets this apart from any other game. It replaced Chrono Trigger as my favorite game of all time. I've been gaming since Bionic Command on NES. Which gives me a very broad knowledge of gaming through the decades. So, please... If you don't have ANY knowledge on the subject you're talking about. Just don't talk about it. Because you have no right to speak on a game you obviously haven't played.

Agreed snookies. Even the gaming since nest except I go back to atari

Crows90511d ago

....so intelligence can drop to below 0. Bummer. You'll recover in time I hope.

This game is awesome. The only sex appeal is in your head. You have yourself to blame.

DarXyde511d ago

Everyone is welcome to an opinion. It is my opinion that this is contrarian nonsense.

It was a fun game with a beautiful OST and salient narrative.

shinoff2183511d ago

Nicer og was good. Gotta try replicant still. Idk about automata yet

I still need to play this! Plan on getting it for Switch.

Limitedtimestruggle511d ago (Edited 511d ago )

I recommend getting it on anything BUT the Switch if possible. The Switch version is a very cut-down port as usual.

Yui_Suzumiya511d ago (Edited 511d ago )

I prefer my Switch OLED for most games and all-ages visual novels. I have a PS3 and PS4 as well. Plan on getting The Callisto Protocol for my PS4. I also have a laptop but I only use it for eroge.

Yoko Taro Passes Respect; Says Stellar Blade Is "Much Better" Than Nier: Automata

Stellar Blade's creative director, Hyung Tae Kim, has also claimed that the game is deeply inspired by Nier: Automata.

I feel like Yoko is downgrading Automata because he has expressed multiple times he'd like to revisit the universe, but Squenix hasn't been keen about it. We know he loves 2B and would love to take her out for another spin, so maybe this is how he gets the company to think about it.

gold_drake4d ago

u do realise that Square made Nier a franchise after Automata right?

Taro is downplaying it cause hes not a snob like most of the directors that think their games are gods gifts to the human race.

he said the same thing when being interviewed during the development of Automata too, that he couldnt have done it without the devs.

hes just a humble guy rly.

shadowhaxor4d ago

I mean, Neir existed before Automata with both OG Niers and Drakenguard. I don't count NieR Replicant, since it's a remake of the OG games. Sure, we have Reincarnation, which is still stuck on mobile devices (quite a damned shame). I just remember Taro saying he'd love to revisit Automata if Square Enix lets him. I do recall there was supposed to be a sequel to Automata, but it wasn't confirmed and I'd imagine it was just for Reincarnation.

Enjoy Taro, he seems like a cool guy, who loves the ladies and is humble. But damn, don't put down one of your masterpieces.

I really liked Automata and cannot wait for Stellar Blade

isarai3d ago

I get he's giving them some credit, but i strongly disagree based on the demo. I honestly don't think any aspect of it feels good, it's not bad, it's just kinda ok but definitely a little jank. Also the souls like formula it is adopting does not help it imo. I was looking forward to this for years, now im just kinda let down honestly 🫤

fsfsxii1d 3h ago

Its not a souls like, its a dmc-ish game with rpg elements. Any game with a third person camera and a sword is souls like to these buffoons

Man exputer can you stop putting words like that after someone's name, i read Yoko Taro Passes and just went blank

Snookies123d ago

Same... Awful way to word that title's beginning.

exputers3d ago

Whoops. Sorry to startle you.
