Is this series good? just beat Neir and I was wondering if I should play these.
Curious about this as well but currently playing through Nier, anyone got that image with the suggested quests on them? Really don't wanna wade through fetch quests in a single player game.
Most recommend 1 and 3.
Try not to go in expecting something like Nier. They're different, but I personally thought they were still enjoyable.
The only one worth anything is the first one.
The gameplay itself is fucking atrocious, but the story and music in the first game is fucking amazing.
Just look up the soundtrack on youtube and you've got all you need.
>people unironically recommend 3 over 2
I know Taro had little to do with 2, but how can you legitimately believe this? 3 wasn't a bad game but 2 was more enjoyable in every aspect but gameplay.
I tried playing Drakengard 1, but I thought it was an awful slog after about 6 hours, and gave up. It's a shame that you end up grinding a lot of weapon levels in the first level, which has an awful ~10ish second loop grating on your ears for well into 40 minutes a pop.
These games suck. I drove myself to insanity beating DoD 1, 3 was pretty bad sometimes as well. NieR is loaded with fucking terrible item grinds. Don't play these games
Because I don't want you normies ruining my comfy DoD threads
He's free to try them out if he can stomach the gameplay.
So far most of the bad threads are when the OP mentions Automata being a PS4 exclusive.
Probably referring to the novella that takes place after Ending A.
An excellent question. Perhaps because the director is trying his damndest to match Hideo Kojima and Swery in terms of batshit madness and juvenile humor. I like the series enough for what it is, but Drakengard 3 felt like it was starting to disappear up it's own but in place. Like Accord.
God I hate accord. I hate it when people dress up Deus Ex Machina.
I keep listening to DoD soundtrack to this day. Fuckers keep taking it down and some guy just keeps reuploading it.
Oh, fuck, right, duh. Fuck, now I'm sad about it again.
In 3, you'll be grinding a lot of gold to buy all the weapons in the shop, along with materials if you plan on upgrading all the weapons too.
Read Dark Id's Let's Play of Drakengard 1. Unless you want to torture yourself -- some might argue that it was the whole point -- then go ahead and break out the PS2 yourself.
I don't know much about 2, but it's more or less non-canon, at least relative to the other games.
Play Nier. The combat/gameplay is super primitive, but isn't horrible, and there are even neat ideas here and there like applying adjectives to your equipment to change its traits.
I haven't finished Drakengard 3, but it's slightly more well-realized as an action game than Nier.. only just.
I like Accord. The Capitol City being all futuristic has been there since the first game, so it's exciting to see what someone/thing from it's original universe or world is like.
I really hope we see more of Accord in Automata and she's not just mentioned in passing or something.
female friendcan easily clear Branch D's final boss, but I can't stand a ghost of a chance without a timing guide
Such exquisite humiliation.
After I beat it the first time, I've been able to clear it flawlessly (though the final note sucks still). In some sick way, I miss the struggle. I felt like I really overcame an incredible struggle when I first beat it.
I have absolutely zero sense of rhythm, so it's a nightmare for me.
That being said, DOD1's final boss is really fun, and I can do it whenever I want for kicks. G.Queen was nothing compared to the Intoners.
