I'm definitely buying this game later this year. Exclusives are a good selling point too. I hope the visuals are top notch for PS4 and they don't dumb down the graphics to match up more with older gen limitations.

Its good to see some of the characters.. but it still doesn't show much of the campaign in the details. For a game thats going to take around 80 hours to fully complete, they seem pretty tight lipped about the plot.

Thats how I like it... it seems to have a lot of shades of grey... with all the characters, you probably choose which you will be on the good and bad side of. There seems to be a lot of different choices to make.

Well the achievements/trophies make it seem that this will have somewhat of a moral system in it (not the likes of Fable/TOR/etc) and these characters just seem to prove that point. Honestly I'm happy Ubisoft is keeping tight lipped about the campaign. It gets me more hyped for the game and I enjoy it more the less I know because I don't go into it knowing most of the story.

Its reminding me about how most movie trailers give away the main plot. We should all be pleasantly surprised and enjoy the game more this way. We already know the game is going to play great, I just hope the plot is rock solid. Because if people start playing and aliens attack within the first 5 minutes or its a rehash of any of the Saints Row or GTA games, people will probably raise hell online. XD

But what if its a rehash of SR2 or GTA4? (Minus GTA4s bad driving mechanics)

 

In SR2 the ultimate enemy was the corporation, Ultor. And 2 of the gang stories dealt with friends being killed.

 

In GTA4 it was someone from Niko's past. Though I'd imagine some if not most would either rage or laugh if someone would constantly call up the Player-Character.

I picked up my copy of watch dogs today and I think I might switch to digital only now. One of the two gamestop pre-order bonuses was printed on the reciept and the other is supposed to be emailed to me.. I was under the impression that one of the codes was supposed to be in the physical copy only, but I guess that isn't the case. Digital only might be the better choice now.

Ok.. I have to correct myself. Turns out the white hacker pack code was in the physical box. Once I opened the game box, and removed the insert I noticed the code was visible through the plastic, because the code was printed on the opposite side of the box art. The code I recieved on my receipt was for "Palace Pack" and "Palace Pack 2". The first is the palace pack dlc with missions and the second was the atm hacking boost. I guess I won't be getting an email at this point, which is fine. One thing that annoyed me is that the gamestop employee asked me if I wanted to buy the season pass for $19.99 because it was 25% off with the purchase of the game.. but online the season pass is already $19.99. No thanks buddy. When I feel like getting it, I'll drop the $20 when I feel like it.

Those are pc users, the game seems to run poorly on PC from what I've been reading... Apparently Ubi has a history of this with most of their games. I haven't had any issues. I turned the online aspects of the game off because I don't want to be bothered by trolls.

PC elitists. Their negative opinions are to be expected. It was a horrible first day for the PC version, u play servers were down which prevented everyone that bought it from being able to even load the game because they can't verify their purchase thru the company's copy right protection.

And of course its because its a console port instead of a game made for PC ported to console. XD LAWLZ *continues enjoying playing Watch Dogs on a console*

F'ing whiners, never happy unless it's completely optimized for PC gameplay. This is why I hate PC gamers (even though I play games on PC I don't whine about crap like this). Uplay was having problems all around, hell last night my game kept freezing up on PS4 because I was constantly losing connection to the Uplay server (PS4 was having trouble resolving the damn disconnect problems causing me to restart the game twice). Didn't get mad though, game is freaking fun as hell and rather amazing imo (from what I've played, not exactly that far. Too busy hacking peoples phones for money, fighting crime, and killing gang members).

I stick with my silenced Spec Ops 1911. I don't see the point of gun stores other than maybe you might need some ammo. I have a pretty massive arsenal already just picking up weapons off baddies I've taken down. Gang hideouts are probably the best way to get a lot of new guns. I pick off all the henchmen with my 1911 or exploding hacks and then take down the boss. I've got a few assault rifles. SVD sniper rifle, multiple pistols and SMGs, and two shotguns so far. I don't like going loud because the cops come so quickly... plus I'm playing as protector this time though. I haven't had to really use any of the assault rifles except for on crime convoy... I stand off the side of the road, fill the target's car full of lead, and speed off in a near by car. XD Surely those get more difficult later on.

 

I don't see the point in buying cars either when you can just steal them instantly adding them to your collection, or hacking them off pedestrians.

 

 

My first sloppy gang hideout attempt. I was still getting a feel for the game. lol

Good video, it emphasizes how you have to pay the game. Lure the enemies into an explosive and take them out. You had a great triple kill too. XD this game cannot be played like gta or saints row.. A couple bullets and you're dead. Stealth is definitely preferable in this game.

That was was pretty easy compared to another one I did. The boss was standing next to a getaway car, and would bolt at the first sign of trouble. None of his crew where carrying explosives so I had to shoot them all when they were out of his line of sight. The only thing I could do to them was send them fake text messages about their plane tickets being cancelled or their stock becoming worthless. XD

 

The funny thing is that on of the "tips" says to shoot at cops' arms and legs to receive less negative reputation, but when I tried to bust the knee caps of the boss with a sniper rifle he died. WTF.

Lmao! That rifle must have been shooting some high caliber rounds. You probably did enough damage that his leg should have exploded right off his body. XD I'm kind of glad they didn't put dismemberment and decapitation in the game. The amount of ppl that get exploded in this game would have turned it into a gore fest.

One of the White Palace missions is a bitch. I should have uploaded it as a tip. Long story short, once you get your hacked objective, run out the door in front of you and jump on the motorcyle to pursuit... swap to a car when you get a chance, don't go for a car at the mansion or the target will just escape before you even get out the drive way... If you came up with a better solution let me know.

 

Here's my first share factory compilation.

      Looks like hundreds of users are browsing AC in waves.. the ip#s are all almost the same, coming out of Singapore. It started like 3 days ago. Either somebody posted something very popular in Singapore, or theres some weird Singapore search engine that just wont be content until it searches through every single page on the site.

      Deep into my one and only mobile game, Facebook caught wind. 🙄 I've spent the past 2 weeks grinding out on Azur Lane. I've pretty much fallen in love with the simple little game. I enjoy the collecting, retrofitting, gearing, dorm managing and commissioning more than the actual missions.   But now I get every shit shovelware ad for mobile games on my facebook feed. Kiss of War, Raid Shadow Legends, Epic Seven, Iron Saga. I wonder how much they actually add to their playerbase/funds from these? I don't choose to hide the ads because the comments section are gold with the mockery. Of course I only get these ads on my phone while on my PC i get FFXIV ads which I already have a sub too, and some anime crate which I allow to keep showing because I've hid every other possible ad in the algorithm from showing up. I rather just keep that one around because they have nice promo art most the time.

      I'm going to take a moment to say that out of all the games I've played throughout my time as a gamer Nier: Automata is probably one of the best games I've had the pleasure of playing in a very long time. By saying this I have just beaten it (well I beat it last night but I went through to get ending D today (I cheated so I didn't have to do the whole tower section again and reloaded at my save right before the final two fights). I'll most likely be redoing the whole Tower chapter again tomorrow so I can get D on my main save file so I can get ending E, the true ending. Wish me luck because I hear the final section to get E is a nightmare) and yes it took me forever but I'm glad it did. I've played many games that have great stories, great characters, great world building, great gameplay, and yes even great soundtracks (you'd be lying to yourself if you didn't think the OST for Nier was a major component of it) but none of them have ever encapsulated me this much (I say this having a complete obsession over the Suikoden series of games, by far my all time favorites when it comes to world building/story/characters).
      I've never come to care for characters so much as I have with 2B, Pascal, and A2 (screw 9S, sorry to everyone that likes him but I do not like his character and don't get me started on actually having to use him in combat. Worst parts of the game for me even with his story being so damn good). Everything they go through and everything they experience from the minor gains to the major losses all resonated with me (and in some cases absolutely gutted me, I'm looking at you Pascal). I won't be ruining anything about their stories here or giving a major plot developments but DX will definitely understand where I'm coming from. You really grow attached to these characters in ways you don't notice until something major happens. Hell I've never been attached to a character as much as I am to 2B. Watching her grow throughout the entirety of her play through (and 9S's), watching as she struggles with the things she had to do before the events of this game, watching as she gradually opens up more to those around her, and watching her become more accepting of the new truths around her was amazing. Most main characters never get this treatment with all these minor nuances and most are lucky if they get the character growth she did. A2 is similar in a lot of ways but her growth comes a lot faster and it's harder to get really attached to her since you don't spend as much time with her (but damn do I love her sassy personality, her interactions with Pod 42 are gold). I really wish she'd of gotten more attention than she did (and you really don't even understand the depth of her backstory and character unless you read about the stage play Yoko Taro did that tells it (it's briefly mentioned in game but not much is said)). I won't get into Pascal other than he's a very well written character, lovable, and gets the shaft hard and it really sucks because he's so lovable.
      Story wise it's really just your typical sci-fi plot and while good is nothing really to write home about as it's the characters that make this game so good (not trying to undermine it by any means but it's certainly not Tolkien levels of epic). It also pays, while not necessary, to have prior knowledge of both the original Nier's story and Drakengard's story as it actually helps you understand a lot of the what happened in the past to lead to where this game is at storyline wise (hell three of the NPC characters are directly from the original Nier). I'm really glad I went and read up on them before beating the game, it really helped me understand a lot of what I was seeing toward the end and helped elaborate on a bunch of the in-game text documents you find. Though it might be easier to get that backstory soon as rumor has it we might be getting a remake/remaster of the original Nier or maybe we'll get a brand new game.
      The OST is where this game truly shines (so much so I bought it, a rarity for me as I usually don't buy game soundtracks (the only other exception being the Journey OST)). As I said above it's a major component of the game and a major factor behind why I love this game so much. Hell I can't even listen to Weight of the World anymore without getting teary eyed (such a great song, don't think I'll be able to do the Nier raid in FFXIV anymore with the music on. Might end up ugly crying (and they won't be manly tears)). It really sets up all the pieces quite well and adds a lot of the emotional undertone to the game.
      As for gameplay I'm not the biggest hack and slash fan. Never really have been as I've always gravitated toward RPG's and Strategy games while only playing the occasional hack and slash (I mean before this my only real forays into the genre were the Dynasty and Samurai Warriors games) but I gotta say I really enjoyed the combat in Nier. After getting used to it (which did take awhile) I started to really enjoy dashing in, slashing like a mad man, evading when needed, and rotating in Pod Programs (I'm a big fan of Mirage, so OP with fully leveled weapons). Bosses are a blast as well if not somewhat annoying depending on which one you're fighting (I'm looking at you eyeball of death). My only two complaints about combat are the Pods (outside of programs they're practically useless (and I say this knowing full well how many times the missile pod saved my ass)) and the 9S hacking mini-game (god was this one of the most annoying parts of the game for me and it sucks that its so fucking powerful. I just hate the randomness of what you'll get every time you hack into an enemy).
      I really don't know what else I can say about this other than I finally understand why everyone has been praising it since it came out, it really is that good. I can't recommend this game enough and it's definitely worth the money (I only wish I'd of waited on buying it until they released the Game of the YoRHa Edition so I could get that damn dynamic theme and avatars). I also need to thank Platinum Games for making it and Yoko Taro for creating such a wonderful world (he's a mad lad and I love it, I really hope we're getting a remake/remaster of Nier or another Nier game in the future as this man needs to be at the helm again). This truly has been one of my best gaming experiences in a long time (outside of Detroit, which is still a masterpiece imo).
      Now to move on to other games finally. Maybe now I can finally get Horizon beaten or maybe not as I did get Pokemon Sword for Christmas and that will probably eat up my free time until Cyberpunk (hey don't judge me, I actually still like the Pokemon franchise and this one, from what little I've played, is really fun and I'm liking a lot of the new editions to the main game play loop).

    • That spear is awesome, and the armor looks cool too.  
    • That outfit looks good with those boots. I really like that sword.
    • That bow is massive! And awesome looking. 😯
    • I really wish GW2 would add this system. There is a "sexy stretch" in the hand on hip idle. Each idle stance has an animation that goes into it. That way people that bitch and moan about it never had to see it, but people that liked it can have it in that stance. I have more fun that I should messing around with poses in this game while I wait to be match made into a dungeon. /sit has different sitting positions, and you can sit in chairs or on boxes and have different sitting positions there too. I'm sure this is nothing to every other FFXIV player, but to me its so unique and fun. There is even a /pose where you do a little turn around over the shoulder look.
       
    • I miss sexy stretch. lol.
