Buy NieR: Automata.
Buy NieR: Automata.

Probably not on Steam, since Platinum never patched the game's performance problems. Probably buy the PS4 version instead (I played it in full on an original-launch PS4 and it was just fine that way). But buy NieR: Automata on some platform, regardless. Also, if opting for PC, you'll definitely need a controller- the KBM inputs are far from optimal (and frankly, they probably never could be, due to the genre-shifting nature of the game).

You basically have two options: Go in blind, or catch up on the universe it takes place in. Going in blind is fine. You'll still get a lot out of it. But if you're all caught up, then NieR: Automata will have a profoundly greater impact than it would otherwise have by going in with no prior experience to the series. Trust me. It's worth it.

So, if you didn't play the original NieR, go watch this whole 17 hour LP of the first game . If you want more background then watch Mr. Clemps' two-part analysis of Drakengard (1) (2) , two-part of Drakengard 3 (1) (2) , and three-part of the original NieR (1) (2) (3) after watching the LP. Clemps is a cool guy, maybe you'll like his sense of humor. But why Drakengard? The NieR series is a direct spin-off of Drakengard, and the first game takes place directly after Drakengard, with Drakengard 3 being a prequel to Drakengard. Drakengard 2 isn't important, because it's shit-garbage and has no bearing on NieR or any other Drakengard game (but you can watch its Clemps analysis anyway, if so inclined. You can find out exactly why it's so terrible, that way). None of the Drakengard games or the original NieR are very fun to play, because they were made by Cavia, a company known for mechanically-terrible games, and the two Resident Evil lightgun shooters on the Wii. That's why offloading that work onto others through the internet is a far, far better solution, even if you miss out on some of those hands-on things not covered by the LP or the analyses.

Thankfully for all of us, NieR: Automata is fun as fuck to play.


That's all.


Also, when you do start up the game, don't ever watch the video that plays by waiting on the main menu until you've gotten multiple core endings (by replaying the game a couple times. Don't worry, it's different content each time [varying between slightly different, and entirely new content]. Just load the game after getting a full ending [the game will even remind you about this after each ending], just understand it's not at all optional, it's completely mandatory, or else you've damaged the experience for yourself, supposing you enjoyed the game).

But yeah, most spoilery fucking game trailer since the original NieR, fucks sake...

Cool Song Lyrics!
(There were more here, but couldn't fit after the addition of paragraphs of Nier talk at the top)




I feel like I’m losing hope
in my body and my soul
and the sky, it looks so ominous

and as time comes to a halt
silence starts to overflow
my cries are inconspicuous

tell me, God, are you punishing me?
is this the price I’m paying for my past mistakes?

this is my redemption song
I need you more than ever right now
can you hear me now?

‘cause we’re gonna shout it loud
even if our words seem meaningless
it’s like I’m carrying the weight of the world

I wish that someway, somehow
that I can save everyone of us
but the truth is that I’m only one girl

maybe if I keep believing my dreams will come to life
come to life…

after all the laughter fades
signs of life all washed away
I can still, still feel the gentle breeze

no matter how hard I pray
signs of warning still remain
and life has become my enemy

tell me, God, are you punishing me?
is this the price I’m paying for my past mistakes?

this is my redemption song
I need you more than ever right now
can you hear me now?

‘cause we’re gonna shout it loud
even if our words seem meaningless
it’s like I’m carrying the weight of the world

I wish that someway, somehow
that I can save everyone of us
but the truth is that I’m only one girl

maybe if I keep believing my dreams will come to life
come to life…

‘cause we’re gonna shout it loud
even if our words seem meaningless
it’s like I’m carrying the weight of the world

I wish that someway, somehow
that I can save everyone of us
but the truth is that I’m only one girl

still, we’re gonna shout it loud
even if our words seem meaningless
it’s like I’m carrying the weight of the world

I hope that someway, somehow
that I can save everyone of us
but the truth is that I’m only one girl

maybe if I keep believing my dreams will come to life
come to life…
