That's great news! I would love if this game came out in January when there is not much going on. Same with gravity rush 2, unfortunately it's gonna get destroyed in December unless Sony delays it on purpose.

I'm glad more people get to experience Platinum goodness, so this is great news to me.

Nice to see those Activision cheques being cashed and going towards Nier. :D

From someone who loved Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, this is great news. Now I just need to play the first Nier before this launches.

Watch it and save yourself some time. That's what I'm gonna do before this hits anyway.

It's like the Mass Effect series, you're better off jumping straight to the second.

I wonder about the pc scale options, the textures are pretty close to Bayonetta 2 and MGR. a bump option would be a nice incentive.

Well, Yoko Taro said that the game will look exactly the same on both platforms, same resolution and fps. Is likely the PC will be a port too, so maybe will have better AA and that's it.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (5 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (6 Hours ago)
