Just Youtube Drakengard 3 as well. It runs and looks like ass and is overall just a technical mess. You'll want to youtube the DLC stories too unless you want to shell out $30 for them.

Actually play Nier though.
>>
>>315310641
But then how will he rage at the final boss?
>>
>>315310560
It doesn't run much better on the ps3, I got slowdowns out the ass and something shit didn't want to show up but still pretty playable.

>>315310641
No, you can play drakengard 3, it tries not to piss you off 30% of the time. Or hell, watch a LP of it too, for fucks sake I still haven't beat the last boss.

>>
>>315310852

>much better

Better than what?

I tried playing DoD1 on Ps2 and easily put in like 5 hours

This is just insanely shit though and only in the technical sense.
Can you even it slowdowns when it happens every 15 seconds?
>>
>>315310405
>LP
Hahah no. Drakengard 1 is a bad game but it doesn't get difficult until near the very end and isn't even that long. It's a very satisfying game to get the endings for and LPs just take that away.
2 is shit but for completely different reasons, it's optional but I'd recommend people play it anyway since it has its moments.
>>
>>315310875
Drakengard 1 is a steaming pile of dogshit, that would be like telling someone to play persona 1 which doesn't even have the benefit of having fun story, that game only has one decent character and he is a complete asshole.
>>
>>315310875

Are you trying to deny Drakengard 3 runs and looks like complete ass?

It's not a fun game to play at all. I like it but it's a technical mess. The controls are ass, combat is floaty as hell and none of the weapons feel satisfying, FPS drops literally everywhere even when nothing is happening, which is a damn shame considering the game isn't very good visually either.

Nier and the previous Drakengards may have gotten repetitive after a while but at least what was there was decent. 3 is just a headache.
>>
>>315310560
I got bad news for you anon.
It runs like shit on purpose.
It runs like shit because taro thought it would be funny,
>>
>>315311164
D3 is way more fun to play than Nier or Drakengard 1, the weapon switching and canceling is actually fun, I get urges to replay it every once in a while.
>>
>>315311083
This isn't about difficulty, this is about playing like ass and D1 plays like some hot ass in summer time.

>>315311164
The combat is fine and sword and claws are satisfying weapons to use.
>>
>>315311164
>fist weapon doesn't feel satisfying
I bet nothing does to you
>>
>>315311174

Nah Taro works in different ways, he likes to gives us things that we get attached to and then take them and put them in the meatgrinder...
If he made DoD2 I'd understand doing this but nope.

I want to play it even though the gameplay seems absolute ass, but fuck me this is horrid, I'll be alternating between TW3 in 1440p for which I'm about to buy a new GPU for for solid 60fps, and...this....
>>
>>315311468
The gameplay gets better once you get more weapon types, the weapon switching mechanic is pretty cool and allows for some fun combos.
The gameplay still isn't actually good though mostly because the game recycles the same 6 enemies over and over for 30 hours.
>>
>>315306669
Why?
They are both trash games and books
>>
>>315311606

Does the performance atleast not get even worse than this?
>>
>>315311357
>>315311443

They're not, and I fucking love fist weapons. Their attack range is incredibly narrow already making the shitty hit detection even worse and nothing feels like it has impact behind it. Watching things chug along because of the terrible FPS doesn't help either. This is true for combat in general.

And that's not even getting started on the awful Mikhail segments.

Defend whatever else you like about D3 but I genuinely can't comprehend how anyone can find the combat in it acceptable or even fun unless you've just never played video games before and have nothing to compare it to.
>>
>>315311468
>Nah Taro works in different ways, he likes to gives us things that we get attached to and then take them and put them in the meatgrinder...
holy fuck I mean the story is above average but it doesn't deserve quotes like the above, especially Nier. D1 is kind of out there I guess
some of you people make it sound like he's the second coming of jesus or something
>>
>>315311468
The only thing bad about the combat is the fucking chakrams and spears being ass to use and fucking the same enemies for hours on end and even that gets a bit more entertaining as the story goes on. I love when the generic soldiers chant in union how much they want to fuck their intoner or fuck Zero.
>>
>>315311785
Don't use the dragon's help if it's optional, or at least stay away from the battlefield if he's used. It'll make the FPS go to single digits.

Anon, move away from your super PC and pick up one of your consoles and play games. You are dick sucking that machine a bit too much to enjoy anything but 4K porn.
>>
>>315311828
Because the weapon switching is fun and well implemented. Stuff like doing a fist jump kick then switching midair to a spear jump attack, then switching to sword and doing a combo, etc. It's really smooth and looks flashy. The combat isn't super deep but it's fun.
>>
>>315312082

I'm not even the PC guy. My PC is a toaster.

The game runs like shit and if you're sitting there with a straight face trying to say it doesn't you're in some serious denial.

Nier didn't look or play this badly so I don't know why people think it's acceptable here.

>>315312140

>It's really smooth and looks flashy

I've seen smoother and flashier animations from a powerpoint. If the game could actually hold a decent framerate through any kind of action then maybe you'd have a point.

Use git versions of PCSX2, you shouldn't have any problems except for occasional slowdowns. There was one problem bothered me while emulating. It might crash every once in a while transitioning to cutscenes so you might have to switch to software rendering in cutscenes, there should be a shortcut for that look it up and save often.

Drakengard 1 isn't so bad when you get past the first few hours, it's much more manageable once you have some spells to kill groups of enemies. Also when you get allies to summon, some upgrades for Angel (aerial sections are fine too), and when you get the Ironmec/Hymir's finger, you can go all Guts on the enemies.

I really want to know what it was like for these guys to travel together.

And then you have the background noise of a cannibal talking to herself, a priest kneeling towards fantasy Mecca or whatever the fuck for the twelfth time before sunset, and the creepy girl who makes weird noises at night after her brother has gone to sleep. And so on. I mean, the idea of these people being on the road together, that's just fucking strange and morbidly humorous to me.

If you want to know the actual answer, the lead Platinum guy on this project was a huge Nier fanboy. He created a pitch for a spiritual successor and worked on a design document with other Platinum people that liked the game.

Then Square-enix approached platinum, totally unrelated, and asked if they wanted to do a project for them. It was an open deal and offered to let them use one of their properties. The Nier fanboy jumped and immediately said he wanted to do a Nier sequel. Taro and his producer, art people from Nier, Keiichi Okabe and the Tactics Ogre artist were all called in. They provided their talents, while platinum makes the game itself. Complete separation of the technical and artistic side, very interesting approach that I'd totally be down to see more of.

Taro, you've crushed my heart and made me feel terrible mixtures of joy and sadness. I don't know what the fuck is going to happen now that an actually solid game with a positive spin will exist.

I also know you're a coy motherfucker, and the game probably drags you through hell before it gets anywhere near happy.

The only thing I'm slightly worried about is that it will be of an action game like DoD3, and less of an RPG like Nier. I love both, but if it's Nier 2 and not DoD4, I want muh exploration and towns.

I want my towns with NPCs and depressing sidequests, dammit.

Of course. Make sure you bring your weaponfu with you.

Fear not, explorable environments is confirmed. And there will be RPG elements. They also said even though it's platinum they want the gameplay to suit the RPG and Nier style. So I think it'll be rock solid to fight and move, while also retaining the exploration of Nier. I want to say there are towns but with the way the earth is, I have no idea whether it'll be desolate and lonely, your upgrades done at some sort of station, or if there'll be some type of people to interact with.

And there are people that think replaying Nier 4 times is some sort of insane terrible experience. They genuinely think they understand what a bad game is.

Christ almighty anon, you are a true hero.
>>
>>315338269
You should. One of the weapons has to be unlocked by running up to a bunch of pictures in a certain order. There is nothing to indicate there's anything special about the pictures, there's nothing to indicate if you're doing the sequence correctly, and there's nothing to indicate how close or long you should be near the pictures for.

THIS is the level of bullshit you have to deal with while getting Drakengard 1's weapons. Have fun.

>>315338093
I would if they described themselves as 'masochistic'. But really, up until Automata, part of the Taro experience has been flawed gameplay. Purposefully so in the case of Drakengard 1 since everything about the game is trying to make you dislike it.

Basically... "If you want to get the proper Taro experience, play the games, don't just watch them."

Drakengard 2... is optional. Especially given that it's not actually part of the Taro experience, since pretty much his sole contribution was cutscene editing. Personally, I very much enjoyed it, but on the flip side it was one of my first PS2 games and my gateway into the Taroverse, so I have a certain fondness to it even though I'm aware that it doesn't really... "fit" with the others. It's way softer and more generically anime than the other games, but some people like that sort of stuff. I appreciated that its gameplay was a significantly improved version of Drakengard 1's, since I drink up that watered down musou like sodie pap.

>>
>>315335408
Yes you can technically. They're all fairly self contained and most people don't recommend 2 at all since Taro didn't direct it.

Personally I recommend slogging through D1 because it starts to really pick up around chapter 6-7 and then it ramps up again near the end. It'll also make you appreciate the mediocre gameplay of D3 and Nier a lot more.

Play it with a guide, is what I'd say. I was going to mention the paintings one, you have no sodding idea if you're doing it right until you get the treasure notification. Plus skeleton mages up your arse.

>Nier Automata, of course, will carry on providing those sudden shifts "The basic framework of the game is similar to the first," explains Taro. "You've got action bits and you've got adventuring and exploration as well. When I first got the request to set the game up from Saito-san, he requested a more action type of game, but I personally wanted to make something that was closer to Ocarina of Time, where you've got lots of field areas and you travel and do battle. I thought it was a really natural, really nice way for the game to be, so I tried to twist his brief to make it more of the kind of thing I wanted to make, and I think I've got it more of mine than his."

Prudes. The cast for D3 is alot more relatable because there are more nymphos with deviant fetishes than flatout psychopaths. Also, Arioch and Caim were pretty much mindbroken into psychos so not its not really them as well.

DRAGOON'S LANCE

The king grew old. His piercing eyes lost their light, and his formidable body has suffered regression. The vanity and fear he gathered upon himself throughout the years devoured his heart in their ugliness. The king was afraid. So to prevent himself from losing the borders under his protection, he repeatedly invaded the surrounding countries. The king was afraid. He could not bring himself to trust in his people's voices or his advisor's words. So he tried to take away everything with violence and tyranny.

There was one dragon that was loyal to the king. The wingless dragon followed every word that the king said. It was once saved by the king, and swore to repay his kindness with its soul. Even if they were foolish acts that it couldn't stand to overlook, it would follow along if the king ordered it. For the dragon, the king was justice itself.

One day, the dragon appeared before the king, covered in blood - blood spilled from the young prince when he was murdered. The one who gave the order was none other than his own father, the king. The dragon pleaded with the king. I cannot defy your commands. But I cannot follow them anymore. Kill me, the dragon said, and lowered his head tiredly.

That's an old story. The story of a foolish king, his country that had come to ruin hundreds of years ago and a wingless dragon. Even today, wind rushes through the plains. The same wind that blew on the day the king and the dragon exchanged vows.

Think there's one more in DoD3

Now I'm sad.

>I mustn't trouble my brother. He's busy with his sword practice, so I must be a good girl and not bother him to play with me.

>I mustn't trouble my brother. He's busy with politics, so I must be a good girl and not bother him to talk with me.

>I mustn't trouble my brother. He's busy fighting other countries, so I must be a good girl and not bother him with my worries.

>I mustn't trouble my brother. I mustn't let him know of the dark lust hiding in my bosom. If he were to see me like this, I would have to end my own life.

Nobody fucking knows. Guess SE paid them

Still don't understand how it got more than a 5.

>>315345958
I'm more excited to see what's more powerful between Platinum's talent for high-octane action and Taro's drive to redefine clunky with every game he makes.

>>315346210
Hotglue it the night before Automata comes out. Gives you enough time to build a paper mache Emil mask that you will wear while you record yourself doing launching your magic all across your CE. Your sacrifice will be enough to ensure Nier 2's perfect.

No fucking idea. Maybe Zero being a strong independent woman who don't need no man was enough to automatically get it a 7. I remember seeing some tumblr post where some guy complained that the game was sexist, based solely on Five's and Two's designs.

I think the 8.5 is more shocking, considering I looked at the review and it's pretty clear the guy stopped at ending A, or at least didn't make it to the final boss

It'll be as happy as the ending B of Drakengard 3.

Yoko Taro has a twisted view on what hapiness means.

Saito did say that Taro calls Nier a game with "happy endings". And that he read the script for Automata and just can't comprehend how it's called happy.

Hey, you can add one on there for me.
>buying the CE for a game that doesn't even have a physical disc inside

Last one.

>The small island was surrounded on all sides by the sea. It was a quiet place, blessed by beautiful, verdant nature. And once, it was where violent criminals were sent to die.

>Atop a cliff was a grave etched with a bladed blue ring. Fresh flowers covered it every day. "Who lies here?" the young boy asked. "A criminal," responded the old man.

>"Then why the flowers?" asked the boy. "Because," said the man, "he led a revolution in an effort to improve the lives of all. Here he led a pure life, and here he finally died."

>And with that, the old man fell silent and gazed out to sea. The grave's blue ring reflected the blue of the sky, while the waves added a dark tone to the sharpened blade.

Having Baby faced five commit /ss/ seems really weird. It only works for characters that don't seem to be aware of their bodies like Passionlip.

Those were some pretty level-headed comments for someone who claims to be a Social Justice Warrior. Maybe this place has brainwashed me.

>“i didn’t even want to go on a rage against drakengard 3. i didn’t bring this shit up, an anon asked why i was hyping child of light instead of drakengard 3 and i told them why. but hey, if there was a ‘misogynistic game of the year’ award, seems like drakengard 3 would be high on the list of contenders.”

This level or ignorance is fucking astounding. Zero is literally what some these people fucking describe as how they want female leads. And this game gets written off because Five dresses like the arrogant harlot she is.

Wasn't Drakengard 1's Ending E meant to be a joke ending?

Maybe to Taro
>YOU WANT HAPPY END?

I like how it gets worse when you take Nier into consideration
>YOU WANT HAPPY END?
>HERE LETHAL MAGIC DISEASE FROM ANOTHER DIMENSION FUCK YOU
>>
>>315350659
No. D1's story is about the futility of life, war and violence, how easily one can snuff out life and end everything one has worked towards. E is a pretty clear expression of that. He got the idea from Koei musou games, heh.

Excremento! Orina! Just the children I wanted to meet!

>There is one thing I am curious about, my lady.
What is it?
>The names of these beasts... What do they mean?
They're Spanish for "excrement" and "urine."
>...Huh?
They're Spanish for "excrement" and "urine."
Oh! Well, I... All right then.

God dammit why is Three so cute. Someone this evil and twisted shouldn't be this adorable.
>>
>>315354839
I love how the Spanish language apparently exists in Drakengard's dimension.
>>
>>315354839
Tres is too cute.

His best friend is the former head of Square-Enix, and the current head was a huge NieR fan.

That's it, that's all there is to it.
>>
So as someone slogging through all the Drakengard games and Nier. Should I play 3 last or Nier?
>>
>>315355331
3, I guess. I haven't played it myself, but I heard it has references to Nier.
