I keep hearing that this one is a masterpiece, and that the story is really interesting. And I actually started playing it yesterday.

It's a great game, but to truly experience the story, you must play through it 3 times.

You are in for a treat, but in order to experience the full game you need to get all 5 main endings (A,B,C,D,E).

I feel the need to say it because i have a friend who told me he loved the game and he only got to the first ending lol.

Hiku (on 13 March 2018)

Yeah, I heard that as well. Should I go for the endings in any particular order?

I would have added to the number, had SE patched the PC version.


Chazore (on 13 March 2018)

Apparently wanting a game to run well and look the part is looked down on.

Couldn't get into it, I tried, its just my opinion. Not bad sales for a new IP.


JOLTLORD (on 13 March 2018)

I'm curious what the nature of their exclusivity deal (full/timed) is, Game could probably get a nice boost by branching out on to other systems.

@JOLTLORD I think it's just that Square Enix didn't expect it to sell well enough on Xbox.

It's not a new ip, it's a sequel

@JOLTLORD LMAO There's is no exclusivity deal. Where were you at E3 2015 when the game was announced? SE stated that due to the games cult following they decided to make a new NieR, and the platforms for it were only on PS4. Also, after E3 2014, SE started focusing only on PS4 with their home console Japanese games, hence why Final Fantasy Type-0 was the last announced Japanese game for Xbox One until Romancing Saga 2 in December 2017. The game is not coming to Xbox One because....wait for it...It is the publishers choice. Yeah, that still exists. The game is fine where it is. Always someone trying to play management.

Rob5VGC (on 13 March 2018)

@reviniente What about Steam, the Personal Computer platform that Nier Automata was announced for in August 2016?

Are you hinting that I should change historical events and mention a platform at an event when it wasn't announced there?

It's NOT exclusive to the PS4. There was either, no exclusivity agreement, the agreement was that it would be a timed exclusive fir the PS4, or they broke their own agreement. That's all there is to it.
