you have a futa wearing nightwear in the game

you would prefer Kaine to be a real girl, yeah? then you wouldn't complain about important woman character wearing almost nothing because that's how it's supposed to be in your little world. but noooo, a little dick here and there and it's suddenly FUCKING WRONG REEEE

Does the game itself confirms that Kaine has a penis with some dialogue, or it's just her crotch was noticed by fans and eventually confirmed by Taro or other developer?

I've never played Nier 1, but I think Kaine having a penis is Taro partly mocking the trope of a fantasy heroine. She's undeniably pretty, but has "that" + a really foul mouth

The nice part though is that being futa isn't actually a joke and a huge part of Kaine's character, it's just not ever stated or even largely hinted in-game. Kind of like oniichan Nier being a twink and Emil being /cm/ + /y/

You almost never have to grind RNG in automata , just for very simple stuff like pod upgrades and even then quest rewards can cover a lot of that

Original Nier though ? Oh boy i still have nightmares of farming eagle eggs
Plus every quest requires you to actually do go get the items required , nier automata seems to ask you basic shit you already have ,or garantees an ennemy will drop it if you follow the marker

Serious question: does Yoko Taro have autism, the asperger syndrome or something like that?
Don't get me wrong, I really like his works like most of us do, but I don't believe that he's perfeclty right in the head.

And I'm talking about real mental illness here, not about "lol autism xD hehe" thing (because yeah, he surely has that kind of it).

Honestly he seems like the right kind of artist. He's embraced the craft and what he's good at in the craft but really isn't interested in personal fame. Sadly I feel that's why many think he must have brain problems because western culture memes you into thinking everybody wants/has to be rock star famous or there is something wrong with you. Paraphrasing Mr. Rodgers: We want people to be like us but what we really should want is to be ourselves and accepted for it.

No, seriously.
It's not the "nips are sooo weird!" trope, he's something else.

Right? I'm absolutely impressed by some of his ideas, I had a lot of "dayum Taro, you clever bastard" moments in Automata, but I think his creativity is linked with some kind of autism. His movement, hiding the face, the way he acts is more than just goofing or trying to be special.

Well, he's really interesting guy.

but I don't believe that he's perfeclty right in the head.

To sort of change the topic a little, I remember back in the day when I used to hang out with some friends at an arcade in a local shopping street. There was this really long roof that some of us liked to climb up and walk up and down the thing for awhile. One time, though, one of my friends slipped and died from the fall.
He was completely motionless except for his “goods”…… It was an undeniably horrible event but it was still kinda funny to have noticed something like that. I remember laughing with the others about it.

dude he isn't hiding his face, he's just having fun, we have photos of him from 2008 up to 2015
also:
he's creative so he must have brain problems
Short of a very few math majors this is almost never the case, normies meme it as such like bs that Einstein failed 4th grade math or never learned to tie his shoes, but the history books shows that shit wasn't the case and he was miles ahead of his peers in terms of skills of most types. I really kill to know where this nearly 40 year old meme started that "if your smart you must have brain problems" came from

TalkBomber

VisualMaster

From what I can tell Yoko Taro is most likely a chronic major depressive with recurring suicidal thoughts. He survived his affliction the same way a lot of other people in his position do: Reading a fuckton of philosophy and conceptual metaphysics. His games practically seep with pained introspection cast against tropes adapted from both western and eastern philosophers as well as traces of various parables he no doubt read.

Basically the guy's a walking corpse doing whatever the fuck he wants. Trying to understand him if you're not like him is impossible. You're better off just considering him an eccentric weirdo.

I feel like that's more linked to his philosophy on game design. When designing games, his core philosophy is always that you should never do the same thing twice, instead you should always aim to surprise the player.

Everything else only comes in second. Even gameplay. If you look at the history of the games he's made that should become clear. He never tries to make the same game twice. He doesn't try to fit in some kind of mold. For people who like the way certain games he made this isn't that nice as even sequels won't have a similar gameplay loop. However if you like being constantly surprised and having your expectations broken then his games are the way to go.

Culture namely that we are advance to the point you can see the gods of skills and crafts daily.

Now how this can relate on topic I challenge Taro could be very upbeat and happy, more so since he admitted in interviews why he writes like he does:

vg247.com/2017/04/03/nier-automata-director-created-nier-series-because-he-was-tired-of-triple-a-games/

this sounds more like a happy gamer that embraced his life.

We have a lot of people, even in this industry, who try to have fun and do stupid-but-kinda-lovely things. Creative minds, bursting with great or at least interesting ideas. They're sometimes shocking or maybe controversial.

But I don't get the "there's something wrong with me" vibes from anybody else than Taro, it's not "he's just a wierdo so he's ill".

Harmless_Venom

But 4S calls him Nines before he gets all sulky and tells him that nobody calls him nines anymore.

I'm still not sure whether that's because he only really wanted 2B to call him Nines or because YoRHa got fucked.

I'll be honest the way the game is frame backing up your save is trivial. Your so OP and can do side quest only once so it's almost ideal to just start fresh and if you do that what's the point in the saved file?

King_Martha
King_Martha

I don't know why, but I really want to meet all thoes people who sacrificed their save data to let me have that ending so I can personally thank them. Although this makes me wonder, will there ever be a point where no longer save data exists for someone to get the ending?

I think 2B gave him that nickname and then he told everyone he knew to call him that, instead of 9S. That's why 4S knew about the Nines nickname.

Desu, the ending probably isn't "real" and just for show. I mean, most people probably spent more than one person's save to finish it, and they can only give up one themself. That'd mean that there had to be lots of people who beat it without help, which seems unlikely.

Well it'd probably take a while to begin with. 2B would notice shivers down her spine when 9S speaks to her, she'd feel flush whenever he was around, her pulse would increase, her heart would beat just that little bit faster.

After a while he'd increase the dosage, his voice would be like honey to her, and his touch would draw sharp, unwarranted gasps. She'd probably ask her Pod if she had contracted a virus, but 9S would have hacked that too, according to the pod she'd be 'working as intended'.

After a while she'd find herself actively seeking those feelings, taking every opportunity to feel 9S' touch, to listen to his words, she'd become reliant on him, she'd probably even experience withdrawal when away from him because of the nature of the chemical.

And then it'd get so bad that she'd outright beg him to touch her, and things would get S P I C Y

It's censored becuase kill would give away a lot. If it said kill all of act 3 would be seen coming. We would start suspecting there was somthing more to 2B and look harder into the evidence if it said kill. Considering how it gets censored in other lanaguges I think there's more to it than just ambiguous.

Other languages don't matter. The Italian one makes their word for "kill" the only option, the French one makes their word for "fuck" the only option, the German one doesn't have any verbs that fit into those **** and I don't speak Spanish so I can't say anything about that one. Their grammar just doesn't make it possible to have both fit in every case, and clearly each translator just went with what they felt was appropriate.

In any case, the idea that they only wrote that line to then have to censor it because they wrote it in too early instead of actually playing with the kill/fuck ambiguity, which the game does at various other points as well, is silly.

I read The Memory Cage and I don't. There's no need to obsess over which it is, because the possibility of both being left open is the point. The game equates love with conflict in both Endings A/B , Jackass' research on combat being the same as love for androids, the resulting E-Drug, and in that bit leaving both "fuck" and "kill", or their Japanese equivalents, equally valid. Pinning it on either is just missing the forest for the trees.

Considering Yorha androids were made to be expendable since they were made for war, it only makes sense they would design them to get pleasure from combat. Also, considering there is no reason to assume Yorha androids can have sex, it's a given that the real word is "kill". Since obviously 2B is attractive, and mostly males are going to be playing the game, "fuck" is more of a 4th wall breaker than anything else.

Nude_Bikergirl

I feel this point kind of misses what the game was trying to say about humanity. As in the attribute, not the species. The machines and the androids are emulating humans in different ways. The machines, at first anyway, emulated the superficial trappings of families and sexual relationships, while the androids instinctively desire these things, though they're prohibited from acting on these desires to some degree. You can see this with 210's obsession with families or 60's appreciation of natural beauty.

In a way it's kind of top down vs bottom up. The machines saw that humans felt certain things and acted a certain way and purposely tried to emulate them, while the androids didn't have a full understanding of human feelings or actions, but they emulated them instinctively anyway. I think this was very intentional on the game's part and it's important that the lines start to blur with figures like Pascal and Adam.

So ultimately I think that 9S might well have wanted to fuck 2B, and maybe he didn't entirely understand why he felt that way, which could explain some of his erratic behaviour towards her clones. I don't want to sound like a high school English teacher but seeing him enthusiastically stabbing 2B's corpse with a phallic object really got my noggin joggin'

implying it is easy to port a game from a console to a PC.
What is Dark Souls?
What is Devil May Cry 3?

Just look at the multiple fucking terrible ports that have come out for console games. It is really not all that easy take a game that was made for tightly controlled hardware and make it fun on a platform that has literally millions of hardware and software combinations. Not to mention that there was no way at the time they knew it would every need to be ported.

It is worse that the new nier has the problems it does since it was with the full knowledge of it getting a PC port so they should have planned for that.

Fuck it can be hard to port a game from one version of a fucking OS to another on PC sometimes.

Fanart is a whole other beast. A person Draws 2B fighting a Engel? All good. Draws 2B and 9S holding hands? fine. It's a controlled and very brief narrative most of the time. But fanfiction? Someone writes what 9S does on his down time? Writes a story about how 2B grows numb to 9S? That's a hair mess because you are making stories that are not official to the author's meaning. You are adding or taking away from it, the material is no longer reflecting the fiction. That longer narrative can take people out of it and is why most fanfiction is smut and fluff because the goal is to get off rather than enjoy a good story. Also fanfiction becomes much more disposable than fanart because fanfiction always challenges the original author of the source's intent and narrative, while most art merely reflects it.

I read a lot, and among that it's amateur writers doing short stories. I've yet to come across a single piece of fan fiction that was actually good.

At best you get things like Sonic High School which are trash but entertaining for reasons other than the author's original intent where Amy Rose has magic "girl blood" (period) attacks and you can make all sorts of speculative reasoning as to why the author writers certain things like how Sonichu is actually entertaining.

You can use both, but I was talking about Deadly Heal, there is also one that heals you outside of combat. I can't recall its name and it only started showing up super late game for me. It pretty much breaks the game.

Counter is worth it but really outside of that it just depends on how you want to play. Like I said, aside from healing you can pretty much do what you want.

The port is hit and miss for plenty of people, but there's a mod called FAR that fixes some smaller issues and improves performance:

steamcommunity.com/app/524220/discussions/0/135512104777399045/

If it's busted for you even with that mod, you can always get a refund. I've had no problems with the game on my 970. Pro tip: If you have SSAO turned on, you can safely turn off AA to get a performance boost because the SSAO already performs AA.

Controller is absolutely necessary.

you write in a very stilted way. The paragraph of A2 memories is a good example. Instead of listing everything off you could have gotten a better effect with something like.

"As the Pod began her reactivation it tumbled down through her memories. A mess of betrayal and death that ended in one final sacrifice."

That is just off the top of my head but I think it flows better.

Generally I think you should go over it again and try to tighten up a lot of the sentences.
Is not wrong either, although I think it could be improved with a second draft.

It was sad, there were some references to Drakengard I probably didn't get since I never played it

I certainly didn't dislike it, but this chapter seems a lot more like filler and filling in their tragic backstory.

I like the idea of an "eternity project." Something so colossal, something that takes so much effort, that it can only be completed over an extreme amount of time, and it looks like 9S is about to attempt one.

There might be a reason for it but a reader is never going to get to the point they can find out that reason.

Tighter and punchier.

Spamalot

That was a joke user.

On a more serious note, it IS more difficult to be original than start with a base.

I was inspired to write the fic because I thought a lot of people didn't get closure from E. Sure they were saved but the ending wasn't completely happy.

What about Android Illuminati? What about the operators? Dev and Popola?

What would 'civil' conversation be like between 9S and A2?

There's a lot of unanswered questions, I decided I wanted to put my thoughts into words with a co-writer.

Also, you can see that while many (see: All) of the characters aren't original, the situation is.

One tip I can give is that stacking defence chips helps more than going for health up and the like. I think it maxes out at 80% defence, which is 5x more health technically, whereas health up maxes out at 2x. Overclock is also fairly powerful, because your dodge in this game has hella iframes and getting bullet time for them allows you to do dish out a lot of damage. They can't hurt you if you kill them!

Replaying is pretty okay as you've got a better grasp of the mechanics, and if you want to understand the story better is definitely recommended it.

Also I'd do the first playthrough on normal and the second on hard. Starting on hard is pure masochism.

Also if you shop around a bit you can get it for 48$ I think.

VisualMaster
VisualMaster

The game has at least two full playthroughs (I'm gonna say a full playthrough is getting endings A-E). If you like to 100% games the first time through, it's got maybe one playthrough but it'll take you long enough to get all of the shit that you won't mind. Even then,
it has the potential for another playthrough depending on whether you're selfish or not

Gigastrength
Gigastrength

it pretty much requires multiple play throughs(At least 4) to complete the story.

if you ignore the side quests, which you should not do, then you can prob get through to the final ending in about 20 hours.

Thanks for responding then, I just hope the game is as juicy rich in content as I like to imagine.

eGremlin
eGremlin

The game itself is built for multiple playthroughs, to get all five story endings you need to do what roughly amounts to three playthroughs with a bunch of unique content to each, the third one being 100% unique. If you do the sidequests, which are actually pretty good in this game, each of them has quite a bit of heft to it as well.

happy_sad

This thing

Carnalpleasure

It's about 30h to see all content and get every achievements or the plat trophy without using the trophy shop. 100%'ing it entirely took me 58h but I wouldn't recommend that, it's super boring, tedious, and dumb.
Replayability is there in the sense that you'll pick up on a lot of the hints, foreshadowing, and lore you previously missed. The game isn't really engaging enough to replay just for the gameplay in my opinion.

Also when people talk about how you have to do multiple playthroughs that's a really shitty way to describe and look at it. It's really more like, imagine having a book that has 10 chapters total, you read the first 5, then they make you reread the first 5 from a different PoV which gets you an entirely different perspective on what happened and lots of information you didn't pick up on, and after that you get to move on to the last 5 chapters.

It took me 32h and I took my time. You are vastly overestimating how long it takes to get all the misc endings, most of them only take a couple seconds of gameplay after you have access to the chapter select.
Weapons are ridiculously easy to max as well, you can straight up buy everything but like Beast Hide which only takes a couple minutes to farm, and the money for those materials and upgrades is a complete nonissue during the late game.
Unless you just get lost all the time or enjoy running around the world without a clear goal, which there is absolutely nothing wrong with, I don't see how it can take you 45h to get all achievements. I don't think many people will get that much time out of it without going for 100% and wasting hours upon hours on fishing.

At the end of Ending E, 2B, 9S and A2 are all repaired and brought back to life by the Pods, right? Imagine how utterly distraught, how defeated, how much guilt A2 would feel when she woke up. She had finally died, she had finally kept her promise to her friends, her allies... And then it's taken away from her, and she's brought back into the world, a liar as well as a coward. Imagine what that would do to her. 2B and 9S would be happy, but A2..? She'd be ruined, she'd probably break down mentally and emotionally as soon as she'd reactivated.

Pearl Harbor Descent happened in 11941, 9S was created in 11942.
A2 was a prototype 2B is based on so she can't be older than 9S for more than a year.

From the world guide:
"There are a total of 13 military facilities deployed as orbital satellites. They consist of 4 high power laser satellites and 9 military bases. The Bunker was designed as a military base exclusively for YoRHa units. Furthermore, it would serve as a communication relay server for the Council of Humanity on the moon.
Construction completed on September, 11938.
Entered operational service on November, 11940."

Bunker itself only became operable in 11940.
A2 can't be older than that because she specifically was a part of a YoRHa test run designed to be disposed of and 2B9S generation was only created later.
At best 2B is 4 years old. Most likely they are both 3 years old with a relatively small gap between their creation.

Look, it's easy to agree on Automata having better combat and NieR having better characters. Let's ask the hardest question possible:

Which OST is better?

I prefer Automata's, by a slight margin, but I believe that regardless of which one you prefer, they are the 2 best OSTs ever composed for any medium ever.

VisualMaster
VisualMaster

how much older is 2B
why do people always ask stuff like this? I mean, they're robots, who routinely get memory resets. They both have vastly different intelligence levels and develop at different speeds. It's completely impossible to assign them "ages" with any correlation to human aging, especially in "is it appropriate for them to have a relationship" terms

If yorha was only created a couple years before the start of the game, what the fuck was going on for the first ~5000 years of the android vs machine war? just resistance camp-style androids with guns?

BunnyJinx

Thanks for supplying actual data, something becoming increasingly rare around here

A2 can't be older than that because she specifically was a part of a YoRHa test run designed to be disposed of and 2B9S generation was only created later.

This is still only an educated guess though. Nobody knows how long the development process was for any given yorha model.

Firespawn

I also prefer Automata's by a small margin, but only a small one. I don't know if I'd say that they're the best OST's ever, for anything; I haven't seen enough movies and such.

But I can comfortably state that Nier and Nier Automata are the absolute pinnacle of the vidya medium for music. Nothing else comes close

what the fuck was going on for the first ~5000 years of the android vs machine war

14 machine war only took a few years. Anemone was a part of 8 descent forces 200 years ago. I can't imagine the entirety of machine wars actually going for more than 1000 years and prior to YoRHa it was most likely simply previous generations of Resistance forces.

The older model androids like a2 and newer ones like 2b could have also existed concurrently.
Yet in the game there's not a single hint that A2 and 2B ever met or knew about each other generations prior to the events of the game.
Anemone even mistook 2B for A2 and 2B didn't knew what she was talking about.

StonedTime
StonedTime

E-models were only created when White became a full-fledged Bunker commander. She even expresses her concerns to Jackass about them and i can't imagine this happening before Bunker was set operable. So 2B 100% did not exist prior to Bunker's competition.

It's possible but the executioner quest implies that this has been going on for quite some time.

I'll probably be listening to Automata's a lot more than Nier because it was a much more powerful game for me and that enhances the music in a way, but if I were to try and be objective about it I'd say the original Nier has a larger amount of songs that are pleasant and easy to listen to on a regular basis and for people that haven't even played the game.

Is Emil a Replicant? Or is Emil just... Like, a separate entity to Replicants, Shades and whatever the fuck else happened in the other games altogether?

I know FUCK all about the NieR universe, Automata was my first game. Speaking of which, can you pick up Drakengard, D2 and NieR on the PSN store for PS4? I wanna play through them so I can understand what lead to the events of Automata.

I don't recall if he was ever human, but he definitely isn't anything close to human or replicant by the end of Nier.

Actually playing Drakengard or Drakengard 2
To answer your question, Emil is a human consciousness that they put inside a weapon for the laughs, before the shades and replicants nonsense happened. In a sense, hes the last human alive, if you can call being in a robot body with your consciousness split over thousands of robots alive.

thousands.

I've seen the number 85 million thrown around

Just play Nier. Drakengard 2 isn't canon to Automata, and Drakengard + Drakengard 3, while canon, don't matter in the context of Nier / Nier 2.

So basically Emil was just 'Let's do this because why the fuck not, what's the worst that could happen', then Project Gestalt fucked up, then the whole Replicants thing happened and he probably did a few things back then because I heard from a friend that 'the moon man guy is in the original game' then the Machines invaded, and then Emil decided "hey I'm gonna make an absolute ton of myself to beat up these dumb shitfuck robots"?

The original Emil dies after Emil's Determination, but he lives on through his clones.

Emil is a kid, gets throw in a robot, trapped in a dusty ass mansion
=LONG TIME GAP-
Humans are separated from bodies, replicants / shades happens.
-LONG TIME GAP-
Nier and Kaine come by, take him along on a quest to save Niers daughter / sister.
Long story short, shades are the real humans, replicants are empty shells they made to jump into to try to be human again, but they gained consciousness of their own.
To save everyone, Nier erases himself from history.
-LONG TIME GAP-
All humans on earth die, move to the moon
-LONG TIME GAP-
Aliens invade earth, Emil splits himself into a bunch of robots to protect the old crusty shack from Nier.

Perhaps Emil was a prototype for Project Gestalt, an experiment on transferring human minds and souls into a lifeless core, which is BASICALLY what they were doing with the Replicants.

Or, maybe they just made Emil for the crack, and then when the whole SALT MINE SHENANIGANS began occurring they thought, "Hey, remember that fucking superweapon we made, we can probably just mass-produce KINDA SAFER versions of it to, you know, save humanity from the salt".

I mean, that kinda makes sense, but I didn't manage to collect all of the Project Gestalt reports so I don't really know.

Commander tried to toughen up A2, but it doesn't help. I can imagine this is how 2B was the first time she killed 9S.

massdebater
massdebater

Right. That kinda makes sense.

I've gotta say, the crusty old shack from Nier is one of the prettier locations in Automata. That was the place that kinda got me interested in playing the first game, it's such a pretty location.

Especially when you 'bury' 2B there.

What kind of retard builds a shack underneath a shopping mall.

Nier and Kaine must have been some real special folk.

massdebater

Where the fuck did that shopping mall come from anyway? Did Emil move the house beneath the mall, or was the mall (and city) built AFTER the events of Nier Gestalt?

Emberburn

Its just Kaines house from the first game, either Emil moved it to protect or or they build a mall on top of it a -LONG TIME GAP- later.

maybe the mall was on top of it the whole time. we never get to go above the mountains in aerie, always in the caves and mineshafts, for all we know the ruined city from automata is a short way from there.

Don't make me boot up Nier on my PS3 right now and ruin my nostalgia trying to find her house, but I'm pretty sure her house was right next to that town in the middle of a chasm?

create the LEAST suited for combat androids possible who should be kept away from combat

To think that 9S was whining about "not being suited for combat" when he actually greatly enjoys kicking metal butts.

Am I the only one who wasn't able to save that robot's son in that side quest? I got really fucking emotional when I had to tell her that her son died.

Sir_Gallonhead
Sir_Gallonhead

yeah, a very short way from it, just like how the mall is on the edge of the canyon in automata, which places kaine's shack practically next to the hole and gives an impression that the canyon is where aerie used to be.

Techpill

so I guess this whole "A2 had black hair" thing is bollocks since commander also has black hair in the stage play
it's just that they didn't want actresses to wear wigs for some reason

So how do I fill the timeline gap further between Nier and automato?

I've read the stageplay but I feel likes there's this massive gap between the end of Nier and automata.

Namely, if project Gestalt fell apart, who built all the cities we see?

They don't appear at all in the original nier and instead we've got medieval castles and shit.

There's the city that Nier started in but that's back in 2049, no fucking way they've stayed like that for this long (even considering YoRHa making efforts to maintain the ruins, that's over 1000 years of them not assisting it)

What did I miss and where can I find out?

Stupidasole
Stupidasole

It would make sense, seeing as you killed everyone in that town, who would be maintaining it? It would collapse in a few decades at most.

Emil probably magiced it.

So for my first playthru on Standard, I might as well never use lock-on since it's obsolete in harder modes right?

She's screaming and crying. Her and 2B are the same, like that scene in the game.

Yeah, they just used their natural hair. This was back in 2014 though.

Emil is ten thousands years old
Emil watch all his friends die around him
Emil watched the end of humanity
Emil saved a shitty old house from an invasion of aliens by forgetting all the memories he had left
Emil is clearly the most shit on character in the Drakenguard universe.

There is still a few questions left unanswered for me. Does the game answer them and where do I find them?

There's more. Not only Marx, but Engels too.
Then there's Simone (Beauvoir in Japanese) as well.
Hegel is quite famous as well.

There might be more that flew over my head, but I guess the game is more fun if you just think of them as fancy names.
