Nier Replicant launches in 5 days (Apr 23) a recent gameplay trailer



I'm torn, I LOVED Nier Automata but only played it like 3 years after release and glad I waited since they released a GOTY version, patched it, yadda yadda. Figure the same kinda thing is gonna happen here, especially since this game is not gonna launch with any PS5/Series X enhancements. Plus Mass Effect Remastered releases in ~3 weeks and thats gonna be my main game for a while.

I love Dark Souls games but the beginning of this game pissed me off so much that I never picked it up again. Hour long “intro” that kicks you out to the login screen if you fail? That’s just inexcusable game design there is no way around it.

What does dark souls have to do with Nier? They don’t play anything alike. Are you just saying souls cause you had to restart? The intro part was only like a half hour.

Because this is a Souls-like mechanic? In effect I'm saying I'm fine with difficult or punishing games.

DS is the modern standard of the checkpoint system and this is clearly what they're going for here. My problem is with the design decision to put the introduction/tutorial into a fail state that kicks you out to the main menu. Two things can be true at the same time, the rest of Nier could be an A+ experience while the introduction/tutorial was a bad dev choice.

That is the part of the gameplay though, the series has always been this way..

And this is not Dark souls, in anyway or form at all hahaha

Yeah, I kept trying to wrap my head around that comparison. And in the context of the game the intro makes sense.

I guess. Souls is hardly the only game that makes you restart, like every old game did that mechanic. I felt no similarity to souls and this game at all is all, seemed like an odd comparison to me. Nier was a much more forgiving and easier game.

difficulty in nier automata (dunno about replicant) makes no difference at all as far as rewards, achievements, etc so play on whatever you feel like. i initially started on hard or whatever but eventually learned turning on the auto AI stuff is a really, really, really good Idea since you'll literally wear down your fingers trying to do that shit yourself

i think later paths make combat a little different and not so reliant/helpful for the AI companions

Replicant should feel even more polished vs Automata,

I'm still hoping for some Drakenguard remasters though please please please...

Does Replicant have a gay or tranny character? Looking at the directory today for those got early copies, I've never seen so many "alphabet" tags for a game.

the main dude is some intersex character or some shit, i dunno what that means tho but resetera had some thread about how this game is interphobia which is another word that sounds made up to me

the usual retard crowd is mad at this game and the game director is a typical horny japanese weeb. remember in automata there was a "bug" that let you play the entire game with 2B in her underwear, and there was a trophy for sneaking a peek at her panties

Kaine is a hermaphrodite IIRC.

For anyone interested in getting Replicant on PC, it currently has a bug if you run it above 60 FPS. Animations and game speed are tied to FPS, with 60 being 100%. The game has no FPS limiter so you have to force it at the driver level.

Getting Replicant on PC after how Automata was treated is the definition of insanity.
