No game I have played since 1999’s Planescape: Torment has made such effective use of textual storytelling.

I AM BUYING THIS TODAY

joystiq throw hissy fit http://www.joystiq.com/2010/05/03/nier-review-fail/

rof gets really grindy @ the end with arena battling - its not "hard" so much as "soul-killing and deeply uninteresting" - theres really no narrative pull to the game and unlike demons souls the combat is boring imo. i know some ppl liked fucking around w/various equip/ha/dmg effects combos but the game doesnt really reward tactical experimentation or require all that much thought.

u can probably cop a cheap-ish used copy if u still want 2 play it but fwiw i really didnt like it

щ(゚Д゚щ) srs face (cozen), Monday, 10 May 2010 20:44 (nine years ago) link

every time i think i abt ordering this im like "there is no possible way this wont be disappointing" & i lose all interest & feel joyless and distraught

coining (Lamp), Tuesday, 11 May 2010 02:32 (nine years ago) link

like i dont even know whats worse playing this & it being terrible or lacking the will to play it all

coining (Lamp), Tuesday, 11 May 2010 02:33 (nine years ago) link

i blame the lack of limited edition version incl cd sdtrk & collectible lace garter

coining (Lamp), Tuesday, 11 May 2010 02:34 (nine years ago) link

totally bombed in the UK so it's already 50p

While we're on this general area, a month or two ago I finally went back and played up to disc 3 of Lost Odyssey and man that game is some drab, charmless shit.

one year passes...

playing this. 2 hours in and its a mess, but possibly a glorious and rewarding mess. camera is kinda awful, but i guess i never realized that i wanted a rpg with crazy strafing fireball attacks before. gonna be pissed if i get stuck playing lots of farming sim bullshit tho.

graphics are sorta lolful much of the time, but then there will be moments where they are totally stunning, which is confusing to me.

just malorted a little bit in my mouth (jjjusten), Thursday, 9 June 2011 17:42 (eight years ago) link

just ignore the sidequests unless someone says "there's a big monster over there". ignore the farming & fishing ones for sure!

zappi, Thursday, 9 June 2011 18:09 (eight years ago) link

i am officially loving this, warts and all

lemon kerrang! (jjjusten), Wednesday, 22 June 2011 22:08 (eight years ago) link

shocked to say this, but i am really liking the boss battles most of the time! and yeah its def got a sort of kitchen sink approach, but its keeping me going (fuckin fetch quests tho jesus), some really interesting environments and clever little moments. i figure im at the halfway point w/about 14 hours in so far. not bad for $20.

lemon kerrang! (jjjusten), Wednesday, 22 June 2011 22:10 (eight years ago) link

shame that the second half of the game is so easy. the spear thrust is brokenly powerful.

little mushroom person (abanana), Wednesday, 22 June 2011 23:03 (eight years ago) link

yeah when they rolled out the oh now u have 2 handed weapons and spears and all of the magic i was kinda thinking the diff curve was going to go way way down.

i hear the fishing minigame is great

Don't start the chain you know? (forksclovetofu), Friday, 24 June 2011 04:54 (eight years ago) link

I fished once and it was just as stupid as every other fishing minigame ever

lemon kerrang! (jjjusten), Friday, 24 June 2011 05:12 (eight years ago) link

fucking fishing minigames

i really dont get how they are ever supposed to be fun/worthwhile/not terrible

i mean sega bass fishing for the dreamcast is fucking boss but all these rpgs with the finnicky controls and the stupid random chance ugh

five years pass...

So the sequel's out now in JPSN and apparently fully translated into English. Now if only I wasn't halfway through Yakuza 0...

it's so different from the first game that no one revived this for it but sure

ciderpress, Friday, 30 November 2018 21:20 (eight months ago) link

I am fine creating ILG threads that no one posts to: Nier Automata: may contain Loligoth robots, mechs, giant swords, and fishing
