Fucking idiots.

The thing that annoys me the most is the attitude that "I'm a transwoman and..." like that makes them the definitive opinion giver.

As if any group of people share identical traits in terms of intelligence, tendency to egocentricity, and truthfulness. The things that actually matter in terms of judging the probable validity of any argument about offence.

That guy/girl is finished lol. The dogpiling, yes embarrassing this. How did it get past production that. Horrible. Fucked up and I was excited for this game

Its almost like the developers murdered someone in cold blood.

Can't wait to start NieR. Will play it on PS5.

Anyone here (must be) ordered the Snow White Edition from the EU Squeenix Store? What is your shipping status? The release is obviously tomorrow, but my shipping status is still 'initiated', which it has been for atleast this whole week. I'm just wondering if mine is on limbo and I have to contact support.

Awesome OT. I preloaded it last night. I played it back on 360. The game is one I’ll reminisce about often. Great world, music, and characters. I’m anxious to see how great the graphics are.

I've ordered lots of CE from that website and they never arrive on release day.

The CE are usually great though. Got FFXIII-2, L. Returns, Drakengard 3, FFX HD, FFXIII-2 OST all CE's from there. Pretty high quality, but slow shipping every time.

wtf even is intersex.
these clowns are so problematic

is the game any good though?
It means you have have all the physical characteristic of one gender but have a sex organ of the opposite sex. All natural and not like a trans who has to surgically remove or add stuff and keep taking hormone medicine to have the same effect.

That’s the gist of it though as there are multiple different variations like having a penis and a vagina at the same time. Or having no scrotum and other different way a person’s sex organ could be. It’s just that it’s a broad term of people that cannot be normally classified as either male or female.

I really liked Automata (though highly over rated) and was optimistic on wth this was, but no way in hell is this a $60 product in 2021

Guys, this is the Nier OT, not a “ERA is nuts” thread. Let’s talk about the game.

I’m American and ordered the game from our very own Squeenix store. Shipping status never updated up until the moment I got a message from UPS saying the game is arriving tomorrow before noon.

Hello there everyone, YOKO TARO, Creative Director of NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139... here.

This game is a “version upgrade” of a title released 10 years ago under the name of “NIER”. That’s right, it’s not a remake or a remaster, it’s a “version upgrade”.

In the beginning I only intended for it to be a remaster you know. With some improved resolutions and that… But once I started saying that I would like to tweak the models a bit, or that I wanted to fix up the backgrounds etc., we were soon looking at a lot of fixes and improvements.

I mean, Square Enix recently did that remake of FINAL FANTASY VII right? I saw that and I thought it would be terribly inconvenient to be compared to such a massive blockbuster, so that was when I decided to call Replicant ver.1.22… a “version upgrade”.

Incidentally, the big string of numbers on the end of the title was just something I stuck on randomly, so I wouldn’t think too hard about it if I was you.

And another thing. In recent years, when I have been around Square Enix, they always give off this palpable aura of enthusiasm as if to say “Look! NieR:Automata (the previous thing I made) did well, so NieR Replicant will also sell now”. I would like to take this opportunity to tell Square Enix to take a good hard look at reality. Only the names are similar and the content of the two games is completely different, so it’s not really going to sell all that well now, is it lads?

I mean, come on, I made it! Automata selling was a fluke, and all my other stuff has hardly sold anything worthy of note. If you really do go ahead and manufacture all these discs and then store them in a big pile in a warehouse somewhere, the only thing we can do with that will be to have a good game of frisbee. Although, I mean… that does sound like fun and all…

Right now, at this very moment, some guy from the Square Enix marketing team is looming behind me and his glare is saying “YOKO you bastard, just promote the game properly for a change!”, but meh, not much that can be done about that now is there? Let’s all just give up and call it a day. I mean, you really don’t understand anything in this game until you play it through multiple times right? And the reviewers will find it pretty hard to do that in the limited time they have…

So, more importantly than that, let’s all just go home early and be nice to our parents, Mm, yes, that would have a much more positive impact on the world I think.

This is real, by the way copied from here

Looking forward to this.I had a strange experience with Nier Automata in that I enjoyed it plenty when I played it but didn't really get the genius of it until after I'd finished it,lol.
Never played this back in the day(although I looked into it a few times and thought about getting it),so this will be my first time.

Seems like a standard japanese PC port that need an extra patch or 2. All I hope is that is well optimized compared to the console versions and doesn't crash. Why would have a skylake I5 and ryzen 3 processor for 60 FPS when consoles with jaguar cores will also run the game at 60...

I didn't followed this game a lot, but I enjoyed so much NieR Automata, and after viewing a few videos and reading some reviews I'm tempted to preorder...

Looks like we're getting a shitty PC port.

Those two comments seem to be at odds with one another.

A 60fps lock I can live with but uncapped framerate in a game that has logic tied to framerate sounds like a disaster.

Is this game going to get content patches or is it pretty much complete day 1?

Think imma just get it, can’t really resist although I kinda wanted to wait for a gestalt music option.

Empty world, out dated and bad side quests and it looks like it has just been ported from 10 year old game. $30 would have been a more appropriate price, but i will wait for the deep deep sale.

Also, those are not my comments on the game but from reviewers who are giving it praise.

Considering the story itself, i think it's normal that the world seems empty. Besides the graphical improvment, wich makes it look much better than a 10 year old game and the gameplay improvments, sure, the other things might look more archaic. Still, they put a lot of work on this as it's obvious. It isnt just a port. not only did they improve the visuals and the combat, they also added more story content. An entirely new chapter, supposedly a new ending, etc... I see no reason why this should only be 30$

Absolutely S-tier soundtrack. The game is interesting in a peculiar and weird sort of way. Lots of weirdness and lore. Definetly a little on the Japanese weird sort of thing (in a good way).

I very much enjoyed my time with the original (that I pulled out of a gamestop bargain bin for 5 bucks).
