Easily one hidden gem this game is. Combat needs a learning curve but just the story and music makes this worth.

For me, I even liked the combat. It's fast and fun. Thinking of giving a try second time on my Xbox Series X. 

I think I tried the demo a few years ago and I indeed ended up liking the combat. I'm a HUGE DMC fan, so this seems right up my alley.  Do I need the familiarize myself with the story of the previous game before starting this one?

 

Now, the wait for the next sale begins lol

No you don't. The story is very self contained. If you end up liking this game, you can pick up replicant to familiarize yourself with the characters referenced in Automata and to understand the full lore.

I finished ending A - didn't feel as groundbreaking as expected. Does it become significantly more meaningful after completing more play-throughs?

Yes it does. Each subsequent playthrough is significantly more impactful.

Ending A is basically a meme ending or a normal Video Game Ending. It's a very common, nothing special path. It's from the B Path that the game starts messing with you. Path B (2nd Play-through) is the same as the 1st, but you will play as 9S, see things from his view and start to see that things are not as rosy as the 2B path painted. You will start seeing the cracks in all the characters.

 

Then the 3rd Playthrough (Path C), is where you will play as 2A, and that's where you will find out that you've hardly even scratched the surface of the game. At least 50%-60% of the the game is still left and the play-through will be completely new. It's also where the story will mess with your head, and where the Oscar Level narrative comes into play. Then the final ending will absolutely blow you away.

Do I finish all side quests in first play through then ? I at least have like 10-12 activities open, I signed up for everything that was showing as QUESTS

I finished only about 50% side quests personally. Try to finish most in route B if you wanna go for 100%.

While playing, I just ran away randomly and got 2 more endings which basically said that the protagonist doesn’t give a f*ck about the problems and ditched the whole thing and lived happily ever after :rofl: nice touch :bigyellowgrin:

@Assassins Creed The singer in Nier and Nier Automata (Emi Evans) is absolutely incredible. She basically sings in 3 languages - one in English, one in Japanese and one in Chaos Language, which is a made up language taking inspiration from various languages.

 

For example, here in the same song "Weight of the World" -

 

1) English Version:

 

 

 

2) Japanese Version:

 

 

 

3) Chaos Version:

 

 

 

All sang by the same singer (Chaos Version she herself made up). Listen to it and you'll be amazed at how talented she is.
