I’m at the part where

  Hide contents

9s is lost

 

 

a lot of my unfinished side quests have disappeared & an [X] symbol appears in the menu 


many are still visible 

 

 

Will they show up again or I’ve lost them till next play through?!? 

 

 

This is one kick a*s game & I’m glad Sony supported this as a timed exclusive when M$ was pumping  hype in something that didn’t materialise by the same developers 

Late response but the incomplete side quests respawn in subsequent playthroughs. Also it's pretty easy to jump between chapters and finish the missed quests when chapter select gets unlock.

 

The second run would seem kinda weird at first because it repeats a lot of things but it gets awesome again after a few hours. Run C is really fun. Saying this because it seems you have been playing the first run for months now lol

It depends. Certain side quests are divided into parts so they resume from the beginning of their latest parts.

For one off side quests, they need to be fully redone.

 

Also some side quests are character specific and so they won't respawn on later playthroughs. Chapter select can be used to do those.

So I started rout B as 9S 

Will I be able to finish parts of Side Quests that got left behind in rout A as 2B ?!?

 

Or I have to wait for some other part of the game to unlock?!?

Common side quests will be available later on depending on where you are in the story.

 

Character specific side quests which got left behind can be done later via chapter select which unlocks after route C.

I reached the robot Village (next to the amusement park) and don't know what to do next. Got some sidequests from there but they're in inaccessible areas. 

 

Currently just roaming the areas. There's no fast travel yet (i know you get it later) which is really annoying, have to traverse large distances manually.

Has anyone done all 4 endings?

 

I have completed game once. 

 

Kinda disappointed. It ended midway in story. Also not a sprawling world like I was expecting from an RPG.

 

I would like to finish it 4 times to see story conclude. But 2nd playthrough is a lot of retreading.

I feel the exact same way. I finished the game on Friday (A ending) and hate the fact that I have to replay the entire game multiple times. That too with fast travel being locked in the second run as well till midway through the game.

You know the multiple endings consists different characters with different path of the story and combat system. World might be same but to understand the game completely one has to get through atleast ending C.

Just stick with it and I promise you, you'll get one of the most beautiful stories ever. 

Also, Route B gives you a lot more perspective since 9s is a lot more compassionate and understands the machines. 

Route C is a completely different hero

Route d and e are like 2-3 hours tops.

I am not against replaying the game. There should have been some quality of life improvement unlocking fast travel from scratch. On PC, there may be a mod that does this, but I started the game on XSX and hate that I cannot enjoy the full story sinking in a few dozen hours more. I am all for playing the entire missions, but would like to skip on travel between the zones. Mainly because I don’t have a lot of free time to replay from scratch

You haven’t 

 

Ending A isn’t the completion of the game, you’ve basically reached the midpoint of the game only

 

Yeah I know. 

 

That is issue cause with 9S (aka second playthrough), it's asking to do same missions. 

 

They also took away an attack button and gave a weird hacking minigame. :cry:

 

Much preferred 2B playstyle.

9s has a different attack style. If you take a brief pause in between attacks, he does different combos, different attack after dash, long pressing does different attacks etc. Also unlike 2b who is best with swords, 9s aces with spears and fists. 

 

Edit:

@VaibhavpI personally didn't love the combat all that much and just dropped to easy to see the story. You could do that too.

The combat is so good in this game. Why would anyone don't like it? Platinum games games are bought for combat mainly. 

 

Even Platinum can't do much if they are given just 1 button for attack.

 

But I will try what Comingle said above.

9S is an absolute monster at destroying machines with his hacking abilities. You can easily take on high level enemies and beat them with 9S while you would be slaughtered with 2B if you tried to take on the same enemies

Breaks my heart to see people complain about "9s hacking" , "multiple playthrough" , "bad open world".

 

Just finish the game guys, all of "tedious" things are planned and well thought out. You will be rewarded, i promise you, just finish the game !
