To anyone and everyone who sacrificed their save file, even if they had nothing to do with me, thank you.

even if something bad happens after ending E, 9S will ALWAYS bullshit his way back to 2B because their love is eternal and their prayers will always be answered by players
Honestly concert ending only made E better.

I mean she just had enough of her shitty job and wanted to die.
It was more guilt than grief

okay okay, I am just messing with you.
I know that she loved him from the very beginning.

Skullbone

This whole concert ending is a giant setup for massive healing.
tender maintenance sessions in that resistance camp room while pods are fishing
9S making sure that her hands are warm to touch yet again
both of them opening up their hearts to each other while nobody is there to interfere anymore

BunnyJinx

Yeah no problem, I never took your comment as something bad
Its a shame that we never saw 2B expressing herself freely, she sure is cute as hell.
Hell yes, I cried when I read the happy ending. They really deserve that.

I doubt anyone would be autistic enough to help but here goes:
Does anyone know where these come from?
rikoren.dreamwidth.org/158331.html
They were obviously never translated, but they don't appear in any of the drakengard books I own. I doubt they are from the novelization, and I am not aware of the artbook having short stories in it, but it might be.
They obviously aren't from the official guide since I own that, and they aren't in there.
I'm going crazy trying to figure this out honestly

haveahappyday
haveahappyday

Is this the "happiest" Taro game? Was this an apology for the maximum suffering in all the other games, or is it just because Platinum and a more mainstream audience?

My bretheren. Post more /u/droids.

Bidwell
Bidwell

by Taro's words, he didn't want to end it happily. But his characters btfo and he made a story about eternal love at the end instead. It worked.

Supergrass
Supergrass

He did it to avoid being predictable, since everyone that is familiar with his work was expecting another "Death & Despair" ending

StrangeWizard
StrangeWizard

It's a story of love so powerful that it transcended even the fucking author himself.

I don't envy SiNoAlice cast, though. Something tells me there won't be a way to bullshit out of that one. Or maybe he will make the player an author those cute girls are fighting for.

Playboyize
Playboyize

It's because the characters aren't humans so he treats them better.

haveahappyday

Is this game worth picking up for someone who hasn't played any of the previous games? Want to know if I'll be completely lost with anything happening in the story.

TalkBomber
TalkBomber

You can watch the cutscenes on youtube for the previous games and not miss much besides a few lines of additional dialogue, you only really need to watch Nier 1

girlDog
girlDog

It's a story of love so powerful that it transcended even the fucking author himself.
And he got his chances to make them suffer in the supplemental materials with some kind of alternate ending or whatnot.
But no - he mostly added lore to cement the love story aspect even more and even make it the main theme of the game.
Even concert ending could easily be sad but it wasn't.

*I am not crying you're crying*

Lunatick
Lunatick

He also re-tweeted fanart of 2B and 9S being cute and said that he's sad because he can't write something as sweet as this.

Feels like his partnership with Platinum changed him a lot. Forced out of his usual shell. I watched the streams with VA and i couldn't believe how passionate all of them were about this game. And honestly his happy or at least bittersweet stuff is miles ahead of edgelord stuff so i'm hopeful he will keep experimenting with his own formula without going back to being a complete cunt to his characters.

SniperGod

Maybe we can give the prompt to some writers in AO3, I gave 2 to one of them and he/she delivered all lol

BinaryMan

THIS CANNOT CONTINUE

Caim and Angel will be my Taro OTP, but Tubii/9s is one of the strongest I've seen, even in current media as a whole. I feel like, for once, it's the fans that make it obnoxious when in game and side content, it's well paced and sweet.

Bidwell

Start a new run on hard mode.
Get knocked down by bridge.

This is not a good sign of things to come.

Is there any way to open the door between the Pascal village and the castle? I'm on the castle side, I thought I would be able to open it once I reached this side but I can't see any device. Tried to hit it with a boar but nothing. Please don't tell me I should have made the giant robot hit it or something because I already killed it.

I don't want to go on without saving, if possible.

StrangeWizard
StrangeWizard

He also re-tweeted fanart of 2B and 9S being cute and said that he's sad because he can't write something as sweet as this.
it was also the day concert ending was "leaked" so there is that

I mean they got a real dream team of passionate people working on this game. From Saito and P* to MONACA and actual VA's. Even English VAs are passionate about the game.
No shit he changed his mind with the ending and was absolutely right.

Tubii/9s is one of the strongest I've seen, even in current media as a whole.
can't agree enough with that.

it's the fans that make it obnoxious
well, we didn't have any not canon wars in like 4 days since the new side material got translated. Because suddenly denying facts is hard.

A2 and 9S relationships from concert script are fucking hilarious. It's like a younger brother and older sister annoying the fuck out of each other. Hopefully A2 will stick around or show up once in a while with both of them warming up to each other, especially when A2 will see how happy 2B is.

Which one?

A2 is most likely closer to #2 than 2B so that is why they act like this with each other.

She's also a really good VA. Her emotional moments were great.
It's like someone took the only good thing about Mikasa from SNK and made an actually good character from it.

TalkBomber

L-lewd. though I gotta wonder, what is it with JP live action and their lack of wigs all the time?

There's some maneuver room with Nier because YorHa members and androids have different hair colors and styles as a whole. But I actually find myself shocked when effort is put into a well done wig like the DanganRonpa stage play.

I'm afraid I don't follow.

Oh that. Uh- around? I steep myself into a fandom for a time, and will move on when I run myself dry. Nier has my attention for now but there's so much new stuff I'll eventually drift along.

A shame nothing came of Cavia High. Stock backgrounds are quite easy to get off pixiv now. I hate myself for lacking the artistic talent to replicate the style of whoever drew for Drakengard 1-2. Fan projects are always fun but I'm entirely against the idea of making it look like garbage as an end result.

Nope, that would only be possible if you're using some very sick definition of "cute".

Kiloueka (open the memory cage) is already working on 5 fics lol. I dont see mayofish writing something without smut so for a post ending E with 9S carrying 2B we cant count on her (unless we want hot and cute sex at the end). Crytarmiun is working on another smut (holy shit, everybody wants them to fuck). Dont know if someone here wants to write something full of cute healing and love

I wonder how they made those clothes. Maybe there's a sewing bot or something. Never mind the advanced applique.

I want to say there's just 1 specific user who types in a girlish fashion. Female posters don't always have a cute "voice" in the way they type.

Stark_Naked
Stark_Naked

Wonder if the reason N2 changed so much in the end is because it understood what a love is.
Its actions were always machine-like and rational. Even forcing 9S to fight an army of 2B was rational as they simply made the amount of times both of them killed each other even. But after A2 tricked it into fighting itself and by observing 9S clinging to the memories of a girl he loves so much it feels like it became a different person as Ark is the last thing i would've expected from usual N2. Let alone giving 9S a place there.

eGremlin
eGremlin

What's this general still doing here? Let this shit die already.

Do you guys even discuss the game any more or is it just half a dozen people filling 90% of the posts with fanfiction and head-canon bullshit?

I see it's the latter...

There is no peace. DrakeNier threads are easily the most civil of the bunch at least. However, having the same posters recycled thread after thread degrade content 100%. See DOA threads for consistent softcore porn of the same thing taken at 100 different angles and called "fresh."

in denial about that canon line
in denial about everything else

The pod's line is a perfect description of their relationship. And it fits into CBO's weapon story too. Oh wait it isnt canon and virtuous treaty isn't canon too, okay.

You can't call them family so this does not apply
They're as close as siblings or the bestest of friends (without benefits),

You can't call them lovers because 2B fucking distances herself all the time starting from the end of the Memory Cage and then kills him anyway.

Denying love between them at this point is retarded, user.

I guess you're forgetting the line spoken by 2B *herself*:
"My times spent with you are just like family."
What are you going to do with that conflicting information, ignore it? If it'll soften the blow to your ego, we could call them BFWB instead - Best Friends Without Benefits.

You can't call them lovers because 2B fucking distanc-
Dude, you're so desperate. You can't call them lovers because they're not lovers. It's a stretch to call them lovers and that is a fact Yoko Taro has provided. It's officially canon. Whatever you want to say in order to rationalize your coupling is totally irrelevant now that Yoko-senpai has spoken and shut you down.

Stop trying to find justification for your weird fetish. Stop trying to force your headcanon into the legit canon, k?

no, they were specifically apeing humans because they did not understand them, that's what they do through the whole game (for example, when they create a new baby king in the forest kingdom expecting him to grow up, and he never does)
jackass also makes a point during her sidequest that "love" as an emotion isn't really known by the androids, the closest thing they have is what they feel during a fight
Of course as a simplification 9S and 2B may be "in love" but a theoretical android would not share the same emotional spectrum as a human

His love came off as more of a super obsessive, but not quite yandere tier love. He did get birthed out of Adam's stab wounds so they're a piece of each other to an extreme degree.

If his onii-chan tried to make out, I'm positive it'd come off as just mimicking humans without the emotional intent behind it. Personally, I'd go as far as the experience being comparable to eating fruit. He wouldn't really get it, doesn't want to get it, but will do it because Adam said so.

Is there a way to make the controls actually responsive or does the game arbitrarily restrict things such as running randomly? Also having trouble finding what's so fun about the combat in this game... the evading/dodging seems to literally warp you through attacks and stuff like the heavy overhead/jump attack gets interrupted by ground mobs melee attacks. The bosses have some of the most predictive attacks I've ever seen and some of the most unpredictive "swipe" attacks that are impossible to avoid(unless you literally warp through their bodies with your dodge). I don't think I'm having much fun with this game(after 6 hours), the switch to the different game designs also got old really fast.

Is there a reason to play unless you have a big boner for 2B?

Yeah but by that reasoning there's really little reason for them to have any feelings at all.

Two questions regarding Nier:
What the hell is up with the geography? The Shadowlord's castle leads them way up and into the city, and the monochrome mansion leads them even further underground. I had assumed Nier's world was entirely man-made which would explain the permanent day-cycle, but Automata has made me think otherwise.

Do the shades' whispers translate into anything? I figured they'd be dialogue lines played backwards, but I don't see anything online.

Lunatick
Lunatick

I don't know what's up with the castle. There's nothing physically connected to the temple shrine. Maybe there's a magic portal.

The research lab is underground beneath the mansion. I don't know what you don't understand about that.

I also don't know why the lack of night time was blamed on technical limitations.
It didn't have to be a cycle, just have sections of the story take place at night.

No idea about the shades. I thought it was pretty creepy when I fist noticed it.

I just mean that it's insane how much effort would have been put into landscaping the gestalt project, but I'm sure I'm neglecting how much time was put into it all too.

Then Facade is supposed to have remains in Automata's desert and the geography just seems fucking nuts.

I can't be the only person that thought what 2B and 9S had wasn't actually straight up love, right? It felt so much more than that. It gave me feelings reminiscent to Naked Snake and The Boss' relationship where it's not love but at the same time it is. It's something that we will never understand because we're not them, you feel me? It's not platonic, eros, agape, whatever fucking buzz words for love there are. It's just something we won't ever feel.

They don't even know feelings like love. I just don't think they love each other like that.

Meh, It's not really stirring shit, he's just covering his own ass legally by not distributing a version directly compatible with piracy.

2B boots up, 9S doesn't
2B goes on a search for a way to wake 9S up
talks with extremely shaken Anemone, no useful info
gets mail from Jackass saying that there were logs remaining in 9S's outside access port from something called Ark and she managed to extract 3D location data
location data point to a place dozens of meters deep under the rubble of the Tower
2B goes there and starts digging
uses her weapons first, but the ground gets colder and harder the deeper she goes
switches to fist-type weapons and just starts smashing the ground
loses sensation in her fingers, then hands, then arms
literally nails the weapons to her flesh to fix them in place
her blood splatters from inside the weapons
at <12 m remaining she shuts down due to overstress

2B boots up
from a piece of machine lifeform tech 2B dug up from the ruins of the Tower the pods make a vaccine to access 9S's memory area and restore his personality data from there
they try inserting the vaccine
it doesn't work
they try several more times
it doesn't work
2B starts crying
Pod 042 proposes that 9S's personality data was destroyed by 9S himself or moved somewhere else
Pod 042: "Conjecture: judging from YoRHa unit A2's logs, probability of YoRHa unit 9S leaving on an alien Ark is high"
Pod 042 reports that 2B's systems are starting to shut down one by one
Pod 042: "Warning: abnormal activity detected in Black Box. Temperature rising"
Pod 042 strongly advises immediate maintenance
2B continues crying

Pod 153: "Warning: abnormal activity detected in Black Box. Temperature rising."
Pod 042: "The fact of abnormal activity in YoRHa unit 2B is already reported."
Pod 153: "Negative: abnormal activity detected in Black Box of YoRHa unit 9S."
Pod 042: "Negative: YoRHa unit 9S's personality data is already lost-"

*sound of 9S booting up*

2B: "N-nines..."

9S wakes up and recognizes 2B
2B repeats "I'm so glad, I'm so glad..."

Pods narrate that they don't understand what has happened. Probably some unknown alien technology in 9S's Black Box had his personality data restored.
Pods narrate that everything which is created will be destroyed some day and everything is trapped in a cycle of life and death
2B and 9S narrate that even if the world is full of curses, if the world punishes them, they will continue struggling on in this spiral while signing the words of prayer
*weight of the world starts playing*

This may be the single most autistic thing i read on Veeky Forums in years.
You have problems.

He has never seen them in person, spoken to them, understood their feelings.
He just writes about them.
please use some other argument, using arguments like this makes you sound like a batshit crazy person
because by this definition the only one who can be one is either 2B or 9S or whatever character you can apply
the shit is, all these characters are fiction produced by one human or a group and these people, by your definition, never been in contact with 2B and 9S, therefore you can't trust them, even though they are canon source of information
i'm bored, sorry

- Seems like the only original script that is being translated now is the 1st one and it is 50% done.
- the guy behind World Guide novellas and 4th script translation is ill and will work on the 2-3 scripts later
- I asked another translator to work on the 5th.
- the guy behind Strategy Guide translations is working on the last two novellas

In case any of you care about older stuff, I came in contact with one of the earlest translators of drakengard stuff to ask him something and it turned out he only stopped translating because he didn't have access to the original materials, so I sent him a boatload of shit to translate and he said he will work on it slowly. I won't say his name since I don't know if he wants it to be out there, but he seems genuinely interested so I think he will actually do it over a long span of time.

that creepy resistance guy who kidnapped and lobotomized an S-type to be his "family"

I always kind of wondered about the implications of that scene.

Obviously, the poor S-type is just plain dead (no mind remaining) or they'd grab him and rush him back to base for repairs or at least give him a mercy killing. The side stories make it clear that androids care a lot their consciousness remaining intact.

On the flip side, 9S and 2B don't react much to what is basically a S-type corpse being reanimated and used as a doll. Maybe androids don't have the concept of zombies or violating corpses?

Nier 1 isn't horrible, if that's what you're asking. Same kind of hack and slash, only less polished. Traveling around for missions and quests is a little more tedious. Unlike Automata, the playthroughs for routes B-D are identical; the mobs don't even get leveled up so they go pretty quick.

However, the music is glorious and the story is almost as good as Automata. It's worth a play.

Wonder if that 9S is alive
He probably is. Their battery is in their chest, right?

TechHater

This was the first time she'd ever seen 6O confident.

Hands on hips, probably a power pose she picked up from some bad old-world comic book ("mango" or something) or an even worse recording. 9S tried not to look bored out of his skull, leaning against the upsized Flight Unit that would DEFINITELY get them screamed at. Not that any of them gave a shit about the Hangar goons. Even she found herself leaning against Beastlord, jammed into the ground, watching the ancient human vehicle slash through the grass.

Inside, Resistance members held old world weapons uncomfortably jammed against three humanoid figures, half-slagged Machine masks

"Nier-G? Nier-R? I'm Yorha." 6O was unusually terse, taking the grimoires away from the gruff, hulking, frowning figure and the wispy prettyboy that uncomfortably reminded her of 9S, or worse, a machine "life"form. More unusual was the fact 6O managed to do this without flinching or screaming like a little girl.

"They weren't alone," the Resistance member said,

"You don't get to bring friends," 6O said.

"They're not my friends," the younger Nier spat. The other opted for a simple "fuck you'.

"Why would I want that?" By humanity, she sounded like the Commander more and more.

"They were trying to grab your prize. They work for the traitor. The masked android."

2B couldn't hear whatever 6O said. A2 had fallen over as she tried to board the Flight Unit.

---

For once, 6O stopped trying to be the Commander. Everyone could see her arm start to shake as she hesitated, then yanked the Machine mask off the final "friend".

It was him. The Traitor Android. Everyone in YoRHa knew the strange apparatus over his mouth like the back of their hand.

"If I pull that off, will you die?" 6O said, eyes firmly on the traitor's mask.

"It would be extremely painful..." He didn't have to threaten. She could see 6O start to sweat.

"You're a big android..."

"4U," the traitor android corrected.

Because their love is something that was shaped by continuous cycles of death and rebirth no humans are capable of, to a point when their entire "self" was defined by being with their other half.

9S taking care of weakened 2B who got some of her systems messed up by grieving about him so much
spending entire days near her bed nurturing her back to health and fixing her hands while she still can't believe her happiness
taking her for a walk around the now peaceful hub areas for all sorts of cute moments together
A2 showing up once in a while to check on them from a distance

You should watch it yourself if you're interested. There is a recording of the YoRHa stage play and its script in the mega link under >[DRAKENGARD/NIER COLLECTION ARCHIVE].

So after reading all of the side materials, the death of 2B strikes even more.

It really looks like the latest 9S was the closest to 2B and they went through the deepest shit ever too. Even A2 saw that and spared them.
2B deciding to save 9S and die was basically a breach of their contract with the hope that 9S will become a better person.
Too bad that this 9S as well as his older selves didn't want to live without her and never got a chance to say that.

The road to hell is indeed paved with good intentions.

FAR creator is banning pirates
FAR is cracked now

I pirated the game and can run it fine so I'm a special case but damn this drama is lit

The confusing thing is that there's no actual physical reason for there to be drama. FAR is completely open source, so I'm not sure how people are even talking about cracking it. All someone had to do was just recompile it without the checks, and it's not like they're hidden away in the code. Hell FARs creator literally told people what they should do, it's just that he didn't want to be the person distributing the version compatible with piracy.

Also, looking at the actual code there were only ever 2 people banned from using his modding software, and those bans were from before Nier;Automata's launch.

But no, instead of just forking the project and removing the checks as FARs creator proposed, which would've made everyone happy, pirates just ended up whining endlessly. And that's the extent of all drama basically.

This situation is dumb.

Just get it directly from the creator's github (github.com/Kaldaien). The only things he's changed since the drama were some quality of life fixes, putting a MIT license on the code (basically "you can do everything you want with this code just don't hold me responsible), and leaving a message that he'd be offering end-user support again, just not over the steam forum as one of the mods apparently hijacked his support thread.

Yeah he ain't the best at dealing with it, but I'd also get somewhat pissed if I gave explicit instructions on how to use it, yet still people kept complaining at me. Can't really blame him.

Could he be the one responsible for M002 coup and clusterfuck that followed?

Timeline mentions a male-only YoRHa unit M002 that went out of control and some units from it fused with machines, awakening Grun or some other Grun-tier monster and causing major clusterfuck.

there was a group of them and all of them fused with machines. Maybe 9S was there as he was manufactured a couple of months prior to that.

But if he really was there it'd be mentioned at this point, to be honest. #9 did enough shit already.
And they got the same monitor system on the moonbase so it is not like 9S is the only in such situation.

Nude_Bikergirl
Nude_Bikergirl

Cruel Oath is a short story with a bad ending just like 99% of every weapon story ever made, yet people are fixated that this one has to have some ties to the actual game, why?
It's just about a village that gets destroyed by the insinuation of a traitor because everyone starts killing each other
Why are there no theories about the princesses from the beast weapons being characters from the game for example?
I'm just curious, because everyone treats this as absolute fact, but to me it isn't any different than say, the phoenix dagger story

yeah but the story itself doesen't sound related, it specifically mentions a village and an old lady
could be a metaphor for something sure, but every other weapon story in the series could, I don't get why the obsessive focus on this one when relevant weapon stories always mention the characters by name (like Caim's sword or Manah's staff from past games for example; I remember there are a few weapon stories in automata which talk about 2b and 9s, but while I can't remember if they are ever mentioned by name I'm 100% sure they had a picture of them together in the background)
this one just seems random, again I could just say that the immortal soldier from the phoenix story is adam because he longs for death but changes his mind at the last minute and it'd be just as valid, because both stories have nothing to do with the game
are you autistic to the point of imagining a whole conspiracy against you over line of text in a fucking videogame? Take a look in the mirror and think about your life, I just asked a genuine question

TechHater
TechHater

yeah but the story itself doesen't sound related
It is metaphorical but it's related judging by the concert script already as it fits the number of N9's deaths.
The situation around M002 could simply provide another reading if Taro will expand that in another story as a male-only squad with a coup inside feels extremely fitting.

eGremlin

Their names weren't explicitly mentioned. Cruel Oath is the default 9S weapo and has picture of 2B and 9S in the background.
We are not randomly talking about it. There is a particular amount of boys and the "taritor" killing everyone.
Without concert story 2 or timeline we never knew anything relevant to connect with this weapon story.

i wonder what kind of gameplay gimmicks could be used for that. she's not exactly a combat android, so something that's not a regular action game could work.

an adventure game may be interesting. exploring time periods, observing historic events and watcher/red eye's presence/influence over it, collecting evidence and piecing together the true history of the past while discussing it with others, then formulating a plan for the final route to change history to the most preferred one.

definitely something more original than yet another action game with gimmicks.

We talked about this a couple threads ago, it's called frame narrative

literarydevices.net/frame-story/

This literary technique uses embedded narratives, which provide readers with a context about the main narrative. This is a sort of guidance. . . helping the writer to create a context for interpreting a narrative. These multiple perspectives give the readers more information about the characters regarding their feelings, thoughts, and motivations.

This has been used in other games like TLoU where you could find comics that, while totally separate stories, provided context for interpreting the main characters and plot.

It's the same thing here with these weapon stories. Yes they are separate, unrelated stories, but they all pretty much frame some aspect of the main narrative, whether it be philosophical theme, character relationships, plot element, or just a comment on some sad aspect of it all, the weapon stories all relate back to or frame the main story in some way.

I think people fixate on one or another because they have more obvious ties to particular character or plot developments that people care about more directly. All the weapon stories have those ties in some way, just not all of them are specifically about the main characters or whatever.

I just got the game and started playing, noticing that you can't save early on. So I continued to play, beat the first boss and went on, past the lava pools and the shield robots but I still can't save.

After trying to google where I can save I stumbled upon this thread.

it's called frame narrative
smart word indeed. I am not denying it but comparing weapon stories with comics from TLoU is not exactly correct.

people fixate on one or another because they have more obvious ties to particular character or plot developments that people care about more directly.
We got side material which was basically in the game from the start in the form of short metaphorical stories without context. Some stories reference previous game, default weapons even got main protagonists in the background.
It's not like we are arguing over a totally unrelated stuff and trying to tie it just because we
care about more directly

just pirated it and put it to 1080p fullscreen and it looks like its upscaled even the fraps fps counter doesnt looks like it has less pixels
how do I fix?
also the controls seem kinda unresponsive especially the mouse
why are japs so clueless regarding mouse controls
also does the game get any better im in this factory killing the same enemies over and over again
it feels like I dont know what im doing just smashing left righclick and jump theres no way to avoid or block attacks the character feels slow
for example im fighting those 2 spinning machines on that bridge and I cant do shiit to dodge it

I wonder if those cute little skits of 9S narrating machine history will happen after events of the game when he will tell 2B and Pods all about it.
Feels like he's telling a story to someone and he sounds older and kinder.

comparing weapon stories with comics from TLoU is not exactly correct.

I'm not directly comparing them, merely suggesting they are the same kind of device.

It's not like we are arguing over a totally unrelated stuff

But that's not what I'm saying, I said it is all related just contextually rather than directly, and was simply speculating as to why some of the stories are more focused on than others to address

yet people are fixated that this one has to have some ties to the actual game

And of course it can still reference the lore, it all takes place in the same world, I don't see a problem there.

I mean, sure, you can look at 2B's sword and say her picture is in the image, and not only that, but her memories are literally stored in that blade, hence makes perfect sense that what you are reading there is literally her memories. I get that, and I'm not opposed to that interpretation in principle, it's certainly tenable. But due to various discrepancies I also feel like it's tenable to treat it as a frame narrative, and that that would apply more consistently across the weapon stories as a whole.

Aw, that's a sweet idea. I don't think androids age, but maybe they build an android for themselves and raise him/her with 2B as their child?

On the other hand, I always thought this is the actual narrative of the machines, so this is their folklore and mouth to mouth legends.

Just 9S's default weapon story, for instance. Even though it's his default weapon, I don't really see any way to interpret it as actually his memories unless he had six 'brothers' we don't know about.

Due to the clear themes of death, suspicion and betrayal in that story, however, I think it's very plausible to see it as a contextual frame to help the reader understand 9S's feelings.

I think there's also some discrepancies like that that make cruel blood oath more of a frame as well, but I honestly don't really feel like opening that can of worms right now.

Do I gain anything from giving the nuke papers to Comander instead of Pascal?
Wiki says
Once you obtain information on nuclear weapons, a choice is available: give the information to Pascal or to the Commander. Giving it to Pascal has no negative effects, as he refuses the information and rewards you anyway.
I just want my 100% quest completion.

Androids definitely don't age; the Devola/Popola we see date back to the origin of Project Gestalt and would be around 9000 years old. So, a child sized android would stay that size forever; not really a fate I'd wish on anyone.

Moreover, androids are manufactured with their personality and capabilities fully formed. The first 9S is only about 4 years old at the end of the game (much less, technically because of all the, ahem, "resets").

Lastly, whoever they made wouldn't be a YoRHa-type android either since the equipment for making black boxes was probably on the Bunker and would require them to extract a machine core from a living machine lifeform anyway.

Carnalpleasure
Carnalpleasure

Because they are extremely humanlike and Bunker was the only thing stopping them from advancing their relationships. Judging by the quest with a little girl robot in the desert they understand a general concept of making children so there's no reason not to assume that both of them will want to have a real family with kids at some point.

he had six 'brothers' we don't know about.
that is why we didn't have a clue wtf that was about before the concert. But now it is too similar to the the 2nd script which features 7 #9's deaths who can be metaphorically called brother to 9S. Or this timeline even which even mentions the family of male androids.

also some discrepancies like that that make cruel blood oath
don't really feel like opening that can of worms right now.
no reason not to open it now because it wasn't properly discussed before and will inevitably arise later anyway. Same with Virtuous Treaty.
Because all I've read in previous threads was written mostly by shitposters.
