More fantastic musical pieces by Keiichi Okabe, more mind-fuckery tragic storylines by good ol Taro. For gameplay, I hope there is something slightly different to it from standard Platinum combat.

This bugs me. Why wouldn't you want a great NieR game with great gameplay? Why not want both?
>>
>>324124643
If you already survived Taro's games with subpar gameplay, it really dosent matter if it gets better or not.

I would like Drakengard 4 to have actual aerial combat though, DoD3 was too watered down for my taste. I'd even ask for a full return to the musou style but that may be asking too much.
>>
>>324124643
If the gameplay is fantastic then i'll be super happy but it's not what i'm most interestd about.
I finished Nier, Drakengard 1 and 3 with their sub-par or mediocre Gameplay and i loved the shit out of it.
I just fear that platinum could attrack the wrong kind of fans and ruin discussion.
Dont get me wrong i love PLatinum and Taro and i hope that many more people get into it, i'm still scared.
>>
>>324124781
I agree that D3 was watered down, but I really don't agree with the whole 'it doesn't matter if it gets better or not.'

I can't understand the logic behind that. I love Drakengard for it's story but can't stand it's gameplay. If it had good gameplay, it'd be fucking perfect
>>
>>324124878
Its like the other anon said, if it gets better then great, if not then whatever. I'll enjoy it anyway since I dont play Drakengard games for their mechanics. That sorta thing will just be icing on the cake.
>>
STANDING
>>
>>324124997
I should also add that all the Drakengard/Nier games just boil down to running forward and mashing attack, with the exception of 1 with its aerial segments. All we're really looking at in Automaton is another variation on that if they dont really make each protag have their own unique style.

Taro said Automata might offend or push away older NieR fans, so that's enough to worry about

I feel it might be the Drakengard 3 of the NieR series, as Drakengard 3 was a huge tonal shift to Drakengard 1

Drakengard 1 is sexual if you're a scary motherfucker

Drakengard 3 is Taro's big fuck you to japan.
In a country in which main characters and females in general have to be virgins and be pure: taro presents a full cast of sexually active characters and makes the only virgin to be a terrible human being.

I love you Taro.

Why?
Change is good, the unexpected is good.
I can't wait for Taro to redefine "good ending" for us in a way that we may never forget.
>>
>>324128719
The only thing that could push away Taro's fans is terrible and/or generic plot, if Automata turns out to be some shitty jrpg of course people will shit on his head but I doubt it'll be the case.
This is probably Taro not having as much control now that platinum is in, and covering his ass if things go wrong.

And I'm okay with that.

>what?
There's been colonists on the moon for centuries, it's mentioned in Grimmoire NieR as well I think. The play apparently has a lot of talk about them because they create the androids.
>what?
Pretty much all the androids besides the MC start getting existential and such during the mission due to being on their own for the first time without humans and being confronted with the question of what, if anything, makes them different to the robots they're killing by the thousands.
>how?
Humanity is pretty much fine despite it failing
>excuse you?
The way squads were treated back on the moon kinda mimics real idol groups except with more openness about the sexual exploitation and the fact they're literally owned.
There's also weird meta-commentary with how the main squad interacts with the audience similarly to an idol group would at a concert at times and other stuff I can't recall

Yes, basically when the 2B type androids are already fighting the alien robots in their endless proxy battle

He grants both sides self-awareness and then goes on into space

I assume 2B would be one of these self aware droids

Huh, I thought he came even later on than that. I wonder if he'll be included in the revised version of the play's story for Automata then.

I'm starting to think the play was never meant to be part of NieR in the first place and Taro is just reworking it for part of Automata's plot cause he doesn't like how it turned out or something.

Nope. In earlier interviews they said something like "We'll try to get her" now it's more like "I wonder if we really need her?". Still, maybe they keep it secret to surprise us later. At least we can be sure they're in contact with her.

I'm sure Taro will fuck you up if you expect Automata to follow the plays story

I realize this is like saying "pay real money" but the DLC chapters give quite a lot of in game money. I did very little money grinding for the plat because of them (that's not why I bought them of course).

People can say everything about the gameplay but the combo system is the most scary thing i have ever seen in a videogame.

To restore life you need to do a 17 hits combo on an enemy, alive or dead: then an orb will appear and touching it restores your life.
if you keep the combo going you can get better orbs too.

Now, imagine you're on death's door and you have to fight some enemies with those godawful controls to gain a little sliver of health more after having done a 45 minute mission.
That will happen multiple times, it's scary as fuck.

I recommend playing the game with a friend so you can share the pain, i wouldn't have been able to finish it without one.
Also keep a list of all the weapons, how to find them and the ones you have.
You'll thank me later when you prepare that list.
>>
>>324134231
When you eventually need to unlock every weapon for Ending E, use a guide. For the love of god it makes things a cakewalk, but without one it's impossible

>I like bro Nier less, but he definitely fits the story better. It was clearly designed around him.

Wat? How so. Defiantly thought it was the other way around. Like until they came out and said Bro Nier was made first people even thought he was changed and added in to appeal to twink loving moon players since he fit so much worse.

Why? I'm really not getting it. Nothing about Kaine's interactions seemed off with Father Nier.

Is this some sort of elaborate troll? The only thing I can even imagine that you are implying is that Bro Nier was more attractive, which if that is your think that's on you.

Papa nier was a married man other than looking like double the age of Kaine, it looks kind of off when they are paired up romantically.

Bro nier looks roughly the same age as Kainè, wasn't married and is also used to taking dicks in his ass: it makes more sense.

Try to read Grimoire nier, every story with nier has bro nier.
>>
>>324135526
There's heavy differences between the English Dad NieR script, the Japanese Dad NieR script, and the Bro NieR script.


One of them is that bro NieR has a ton more subtext with Kaine hinting at her crushing on him very hard, stuff like her getting slightly flustered around him after the timeskip instead of saying he looks like shit is just one example. Her love for him just sorta comes outta nowhere in the Dad version, comparatively.

Beyond that Emil has more obvious feelings for him too, and the line about marrying a woman isn't in the jap version at all which makes it even clearer.

His relationship to Popola and Devola is also altered for the better IMO. Instead of knowing them from the time he was a young man and for some reason just never questioning why two of his best friends never age, Bro NieR only knows them for a few years and mostly views them as kinda distant big sisters of sorts like the rest of the village.

There's more stuff than just that, too.
>>
>>324135624

Also Nier probably won't be out until late this year at the earliest, and considering translation time that could very well mean 2017 over here.

Wait, so it really is that you find Bro Nier more attractive? You think that matters in this kind of story?

>Try to read Grimoire nier, every story with nier has bro nier.

Yes, it wasn't until that and some quotes from the maker coming out that people even considered Bro Nier as the canon because of how much better it seemed Father Nier fit. And I understand that that is the case.

>>324136083
>stuff like her getting slightly flustered around him after the timeskip instead of saying he looks like shit is just one example.

Yeah I was aware of some of the things like this, but it seemed like more proof at the time that Bro Nier was an afterthought since it didn't really fit with the other characters. Kaine being "flustered" really doesn't fit with her overall characterizations while the insults did. Once again, word of god says that Bro is the official one but it really didn't seem like it when the games first came out.

Bro Nier was first concept. Father Nier is an idea for western market since whole "young brother saving sister" is more japanese animeish idea.

Father Nier better fits Ending E though. Since he's younger then and age gap between him and Kaine not that big while bro Nier x Kaine will be some shotacon shit.

Once again, I understand that. Just stating that when the game first came out everyone assumed the opposite because of how much better Father Nier fit as opposed to Brother Nier who seemed like he was aimed directly at Japanese tastes with changed made that didn't fit as well/work with how the characters were viewed at the time.

What is odd to me now is how much support Bro Nier has. I can't remember a thread within a year of Nier coming out that you wouldn't have gotten laughed out of if you even mentioned Bro Nier. I even straight up assumed that the person who made sure to clarify "Bro Nier" as their favorite protagonist was trolling. What a time we live in.

It was a normal thing in that universe where Dragons had to/wanted to be hidden/live alongside humans. Nowhere was it shown that was the case for the Drakengard one. Or even that they had the ability to. Dragons were their own separate intelligent species that I'm sure didn't view humans as something they needed to look like, or care at all about human affairs enough to want to blend in. But nope, here is the main dragon from the game as a human because that isn't cliche as fuck.

Also part of the appeal of their "relationship" was that it was beyond and "deeper" then a sexual one.

Seriously, it's because he's a breath of fresh air. His blood-boner contextualizes all the numbing combat sections in the game. He's a single-minded prick who loves killing things, save for his sister and Angelus. He's not lying to us about trying to "save the world" or any of the good-guy shit No-Way was doing, no he just wanted to murder, protect his sister, and murder some more.

I personally love how despite him turning into a silent protagonist, he doesn't lose his personality. He's still a cunt.

This, somehow making a murderhobo was refreshing back then, since all the main characters were just too goody good.
>>
>>324140552

I think it is also amusing to note that unlike the other party members, and even though murder is his thing, he really isn't a "bad guy". He kills combatants and soldiers. As a prince he could have easily have gotten away with killing indiscriminately and been a Gregor Clegane kind of character but that wasn't part of any of his background. He trained hard and killed hard.

I wouldn't really call Caim a prick, his reaction is actually very justifiable. He was supposed to be a king of a small kingdom, he grew up trying to emulate his father and be a great fighter because he wasn't good at the whole politics thing and then his parents are eaten in front of him by Legna and his sister is turned into a walking macguffin pretty much dehumanizing her, his family is crushed and then his kingdom is too in the upcoming conflict, his best friend is a spineless wuss that ends up fucking up everything and other than Angelus who he initially despised he doesn't have anything of worth left in this world, other than lust for revenge and anger which eventually transforms into love for murder.

>Platinum’s more mainstream hits might make it seem like a mismatch of developer and franchise, but Square Enix’s producer Yosuke Saito says it’s a perfect fit. “We have a lot of young staff on the Platinum Games development team that are actually fans of the original, and so they’ve shown a lot of respect and understanding,” he said. “When we first got the pre-production version of the game, it was very Nier-like in my opinion, which is a good thing. But, I think that Mr. Yoko wants to take it in new directions.”

So he's scrapping the entire pre-production build? Mid development? Is this a good thing? How often does he pull shit like this?

Because the main character in Drakengard 2 was so generic.

Caim was just straight up a murderhobo. He was pissed so he wanted to kill whatever the fuck got in his way. He killed so many people a genocidal racist dragon told him to calm the fuck down. He didn't 'recruit' people, they joined him of their own volition because he got shit done. His 'friends' are a pedophile, a child forever stuck in his age, a crazy bitch who eats babies, and some annoying guy he murders later. Despite their obvious flaws he still manages to be the worst out of the group.

I always imagine the ending where he stopped time he didn't realize that was going to happen, he just got pissed and threw the kid at the demon babies.

It's named in extra material that plenty of people went back into their replicant bodies in other areas of the world where the androids were still in control after they had cleaned up and sent away all the alien sperm shit in the air. Those returned to being humans and does thous not need the magic shit from shadowlord to function. Only the remaining shades and replicants are fucked by the end of Nier.

Yes but consider this. If you spare a portion of your enemy the rest will be more wiling to surrender since they will see that you are capable of mercy.

On the other hand if you slaughter everyone, even the ones that surrender the enemy will fight you till the death because they know surrender is not an option.

>didn't understand his fetish and hated the fact that he liked it

To be fair, he didn't understand her at all, and that arguably led to a good bit of her bitterness by the end.

If you dig through all the material, it's pretty clear she feels inferior to her sisters, especially in terms of sexual desirability. She wants Decadus to just come and fucking take her, thus proving that she's desirable.

Decadus interprets all of her come-and-take-me-now signals (shit like loudly masturbating with her door cracked open) as an elaborate game of teasing and denial, because that's his fetish, and gets off on not doing her.

So she interprets this as being so undesirable that even her disciple doesn't want to fuck her. And for her, ordering him to do it is out of the question, since that would be a final admission that she's so undesirable she has to order him to fuck her.

Meanwhile, Decadus understands none of this and is getting off while leaving his intoner entirely unsatisfied. Decadus is actually the worst disciple, even though he doesn't kill Four or betray her to zero.

It's pretty fucked up, and if you want to interpret it as Yoko Taro's comment on the 'pure idol/waifu' shit, you can.

Not the person you are responding to, but instead the one who made the first post defending Caim's character. I wasn't trying to say he didn't go on killing sprees or was some sort of saint/hero. Just that with his huge focus on doing what he loved and his station in life he wasn't a "bad guy". He slaughtered combatants, not civilian towns even though he could have gotten away with that if murder was his only purpose. Not even saying he did it for justice, or was an anti hero killing bad people. He killed because he was good at it and he enjoyed it but in a way that didn't make him an "evil" character.

He went out of his way to slaughter as many people as he could. In a way he is evil incarnate, there is no goal behind his madness he just enjoys the slaughter. Further in Grimoir Nier it's implied he made a pact with the Queen so he can slaughter even more people.

And while Angelus and Furiae are ranked higher then slaughter on his priority list, not much else is.

Oh and he tries to blow up the world in DoD2 if you want to count that.

>He went out of his way to slaughter as many people as he could.

The point that I'm making is that no, he didn't do that. His "slaughtering" was kept to combatants. He could have killed many more people but that wasn't part of his backstory. He was a soldier(prince) that enjoyed killing and did just that to other soldiers.

I don't count much of what happens in 2, but even if I did my memory of it was he was only about freeing Angelus in it Well and punishing Manah. And even then when Angelus had gone crazy he wanted her stopped as well.

>>324151758

There is a bunch of missions where you pursue fleeing enemies for no reason other then to kill them and even Angelus calls you out for doing it.

True, but that would result in the world ending and everyone dying, which he didn't care about one iota.

I've always wondered how exactly to interpret Zeros reactions here.

She's doing the whole thing to play with him because he'd appreciate it but the eye roll at the start makes me think she resents it. Or is it more just "This again? Fair enough."

But then in the next shot (after the webm) she looks pretty genuinely sad that he sacrificed himself which you wouldn't think she'd be if she resented their parting words.

The facial expressions in D3 were fantastic.
>>
>>324152069
>There is a bunch of missions where you pursue fleeing enemies for no reason other then to kill them and even Angelus calls you out for doing it.

Calls him out on his bloodlust. I mean you could argue that that was player controlled and may not be his actual character but I'm not even doing that since I'm not trying to say he only killed for noble reasons. They were still enemy combatants. My original point was, and still is, that it is amusing that even with the heavy focus on killing he wasn't a Gregor Clegane type of character. A "bad guy".

>True, but that would result in the world ending and everyone dying, which he didn't care about one iota.

Why do you think that? Another Goddess of the Seal would be needed, or hell even Angelus again, just not with the extra bullshit Verdelet added to it that was causing her pain. I mean fuck, he was trotting Manah all around the world as punishment for doing what you are saying he was fine with happening.

I've recently replayed it, got every ending. Also the guy who made these videos and I'll be covering Drakengard 2
>>324123804

It's really basic. The Guardian's of the Seal only have decent lines when they die and the general plot up till Caim is "go destroy this seal, now this one, now this one" without anything interesting inbetween

It's not helped with the terrible voice-acting which borders on total not giving a shit.

The Caim storyline is kinda fantastic, because the director clearly understood what Caim was, making him a minor villain.

Yeh I know bro. Its my opinion of the matter.

All the Intoners are bizarrely fucked up and this delusion of inferiority of hers is her main character flaw
>>
>>324153175
>They were still enemy combatants.
Enemies that surrender and flee are not combatants bro. Your argument is that he didn't kill women (since he did kill children) and that's about it.

>Gregor Clegane type of character.
Yeah he wasn't a rapist, just a psycho

>he was trotting Manah all around the world as punishment for doing what you are saying he was fine with happening.
That was him going beyond the slaughter and wanting to torture her for the rest of her life.

Remember the grin in ending C of DoD? Where he grins and runs off to fight the dragons till he himself is consumed by them?
>>

To be fair the MC of Drakengard 2 went around unsealing shit despite everyone telling him how colossally stupid it was.

Most battles back in the days of swords and pikes and shit ended in one side pursuing the other off the field, trying to inflict as many casualties as possible on their fleeing enemies.

Just because your enemies are running doesn't make them not your enemies.

He went full retard for Manah pussy, considering who his father was we can blame it on genetics.

Technically they fused making him a mother / father?
>>
>>324153760
>Your argument is that he didn't kill women (since he did kill children) and that's about it.

No, my argument is still that he didn't kill indiscriminately. He also didn't kill any male citizens either when he could have at any time with no recourse, and as pointed out before the children that he did kill were also soldiers.

>Remember the grin in ending C of DoD? Where he grins and runs off to fight the dragons till he himself is consumed by them?

Yes, but I don't really see your point since I've always maintained that he did indeed love to kill. Just, once again, he didn't do it indiscriminately when he could have. I mean why would he even bother with Manah between 1 and 2 instead of just going around murdering people if that was his purpose?
>>

You know damn well Caim didn't give a flying fuck about his people or his country.

Because Angelus points this out like 50 times as you are perusing fleeing enemies just to kill them.

>>324154694

I'm not going to contradict you on this, but chasing down enemies that are clearly not a threat anymore just to satiate your own blood-lust is EVIL. And wasn't that the topic of discussion some 20 posts earlier

Nah, you can't double pact. And once a pact partner dies then the other dies too. Besides Caim would NEVER sign a pact with the Watchers, not after all the shit they pulled.

Caim was still alive and so was Angelus, but she was probably in some hibernating state from the damage. Meanwhile he walked across oceans looking for her corpse, and eventually found it too.

Either way, I thought DoD1s gameplay was at least a platform for something greater down the line, especially with each weapon having its own unique abilities. Thats one thing I'm sad about being removed in the later games.

& Yea Nier is hilariously bad with its gameplay, all you really need is the Phoenix Spear and you can autopilot the rest of the game.
