I want to steal her thunder!
[Demo]
https://store.playstation.com/#!/en-us/games/nier-automata-demo-120161128/cid=UP0082-CUSA06999_00-NIERAUTOMATADEMO

Anyone on PS4 want to give it a go, feel free to play and give your thoughts in here, been hyped for this game for a while.
YouTube

Nier is a game by Yoko Taro, one of my favouirte writers and designers, his other title, Drakengard is linked to Nier, Taro is known for making very convoluted stories and having very good detail to his characters. Automata is his next game in his universe, and he's teamed up with Platinum Games.

For anyone who wants to know about the story, heres a semi decent story that can help link the games.
YouTube


Obvious spoilers for every game up to Automata.


The game is out in Japan
Soon to be out in the west
March 6th North US
March 10th EU

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.
The demo was great; being that it was a demo, of course. Combat felt great, although the gun tended to put it a bit on the easy side. It's almost nonstop action but it stays fresh by constantly changing. At one point it's a hack-and-slash, then it's a sidescroller, then it's a bullet-hell. It's easy to pick up, but there's still room for mastery.

If I ever had doubts about the game, this demo blew them away.

good but overrated, refusing to go back and work on one of their earlier projects that their hardcore fans really want?

A common complaint that I usually have with games in this genre is the terrible or unwieldy camera placement. Not here; it always seems to be at the perfect angle, especially when transitioning through staircases.

I more so just meant the quality of what they push out, not the politics behind it.

I am the holder of the torch, lighting the way
I am the keeper of the flame, soldier of balance
I am a guardian of balance
I am the Gray Jedi.

I wasn't paying attention and made a bad connection; I was describing Type-Moon, but the "good but overrated" bit still applies.

There is an awful lot of a robot abuse in the game from what i've seen.

I'm not sure if my internal components can tolerate such terrible scenes during this season.

Second time I switched the audio to Japanese, and I enjoyed it more. 2B's English actress is fine, but I can't stand 9S's actor.

Also noticed that the patterns on the bosses are slightly different, that's cool. Good replayability, will probably play it a third time later tonight.
