    Can't wait. After them doing Drakengard 3 this was a given to happen someday.

    Game wasn't spectacular but the lore, music, and everything else was great.

    Educate yourself

    Story wise I'm not sure exactly where this could go expect maybe ending D or a parallel universe from a different variation of Drakengard 1's ending E.

    Could be yonah post ending D after getting the D from Kaine.

    First Details
    Is the world of this game tied to that of the previous game?

    Yoko: “The setting is connected, but that doesn’t mean the story is connected. This game is set in the future, so it’s okay if you start with this game. Rather, people who played the previous game and come into this thinking it’s a sequel might be confused.”

    Will characters from the previous game appear?

    Yoko: “Not everyone, but some characters will appear. But not as core characters.”

    What will the game’s CERO rating be?

    Yoko: “We made the previous game with the intention of a B or C rating, but got a D. We’re making this one in hopes of getting an A, but…”
    • Weapon-based action is at the game’s core. There might also be some familiar shooting.
    • There’s a rotational element (360-degree camera view?), but it’s apparently different from the previous game.
    • Drakengard‘s familiar “Weapon Story” system will be in the game.
    • Development is 10 percent complete.

    Ugh, CERO A? That's like getting an ESRB E in the US. They have to be trolling. In the trailer you could see Kaine's fully rendered dong-in-panties. No way that's getting a CERO A.

    god damnit I still need to finish the original Nier. the gameplay got a little boring after a while; too many fetch quests. I did love the game as a whole though.

    Official title: NieR Automata
    The game is set on a devastated Earth and depicts the violent battle between machine life forms and the humans’ android unit, “Yorha.” Akihiko Yoshida did the character design. On an image board published in the magazine, a hero-looking “Yorha No. 2 Type B” character is shown equipped with a katana and great sword. With the “Pod” support system, long distance attacks are also possible.

    Looks okay. NieR was one of those games where I loved no matter how much time I put into it (though I never really played enough to get the whole opening sequence) where the music and characters (music especially) were fantastic. I love that damn soundtrack. I have to go finish it one of these days.

    Time for another Yokotaro's wild ride. Go read that Grimoire Neir google doc I posted months ago for more of the background and story of Drakengard and Nier.

    Didnt play the first one, heard it was good.

    This looks pretty nice, different combat. Music sounds good.

    Reminds me of Binding coil of bahamut turn 4

    About YoRHa No. 2, Model B, “2B”

    2B is an all-purpose battle android, deployed as a member of the automated infantry squad, YoRHa. She is equipped with a sword for close quarters combat, and can attack from range using the “Pod” support system. Her eyes are obscured beneath her standard-issue military visor, which she rarely removes.

    Members of the YoRHa squad forgo names and are referred to only by their code numbers. Though the regulations forbid them from expressing emotions, each model has its own distinguishing personality, and 2B is comparatively cool, calm, and collected.

    Story of NieR: Automata

    Invaders from another world attack without warning, unleashing their secret weapon: the machines. In the face of this insurmountable threat, the human race is driven from the earth and takes refuge on the moon.

    The humans develop an army of android soldiers to fight back against the mechanical horde, but succeed only in slowing its advance. To break the deadlock, a new breed of android infantry is sent into the fray: the YoRHa squad.

    In the forsaken wasteland below, the war between the machines and the androids rages on. A war that is soon to unveil the long-forgotten truth of this world...

    Finish as in first time finish or finish as in all the endings finish? Because this is one of the few games I would say you haven't even finished once you beat it the first time, the first NG+ loop is just that different and integral to the story.

    I loved the way they did NG+ in the first game, it made for quite a unique way to tell the story
    Spoiler: show
    particularly after you start understanding what the enemies say
    Whether the game is worth replaying 3-4 times for the story is arguable though.

    Really excited for Automata, hopefully the voice acting/music/ambience will be as good as Nier's.

    Loop one for ending B is more or less mandatory, in my opinion. Ending C and D are fluff/timesinks, though I think D is really potent in terms of really making the player feel the sacrifice (assuming you don't cheese it, which most probably do).

    On the one hand, it's nice that they meet a fan and stuff. On the other, it would be nice if it weren't some guy purposely overreacting for a youtube video (or twitch stream).
