    Only in the western release. I am sure there is a Japanese line in there suggesting she is 15 but really 300 years old or something.

    I enjoyed Nier Automata. I did treat it as more of a Yoko Taro game than a Platinum one but then again I probably enjoyed it more than I had any Platinum game that I can recall. Also preferred it to the original Nier in the end after playing through the prequel again after finishing this one.

    It isn't perfect but I liked the setting and general story. Didn't buy the DLC though so cannot comment on that.

    Edit - belated typo fix

    She's a robo-lady, so she might be like five or something.

    Shame on you for peeping when she was climbing ladders.

    Is that what you'll tell the Yewtree detectives?

    I started this, played for 40 mins or so and died at two big bastard cutting machines on a bridge and it takes you right back to the start, no possibility to save and no auto save. What the cunting fuck?!

    Try dodging? You should be able to leg it back to that point in way less than 40 mins.

    @Armoured_Bear Yep. Rite of passage. Happened to me. Nearly dropped it there, but glad I didn't.

    Do it again and dodge through the blades. You get shitloads of i-frames on a dodge.

    Get past this bit and the save system is quite civilised. It's just shitting with you right now.

    I had the same issue. I played the demo which is that whole first part. I bought the game and had to redo it.. died on the boss and had to restart at beginning for a third time. I would love to replay the whole game again at some point and get platinum trophy (finished it when it came out and got the main endings) but the thought of doing that first part *again* makes me shudder.

    Only a few hours into this myself, I didn't die in the first non-saving area, I guess I am great 😎 I have only died a few times so far and that has mostly been hubris.

    So far I am wondering why I didn't play this sooner, it is pretty brilliant.

    @Ror Unless, of course, you made that choice during the end credits for E.

    I came here to say that I made that choice at the end after reading my notification but others have beaten me to it so yes that is not an option for me alas. And I wish I knew about buying trophies beforehand as well.

    Of course, you can always just back-up your saves before making that choice. :)

    That's what I did with the original game. Take that, Yoko Taro!

    I really enjoyed Automata. I didn't manage to get all of the minor endings but did most stuff that wasn't too grindy. I failed to kill the bo us boss though. The trophy buying thing was odd. Bought the visual guide for it too as I liked the art (and the 2 short story collections but still need to read the second one, it was nice to see them get officially localised)

    Yeah I played the 3 endings, would love to go back and mine the game for more.
    I found a really good Zone while playing it.

    Tried again, got to the big cunt cutter things, used r2 to try and dodge, got smashed and one-hit killed, game over.

    I'll have to Youtube this or delete the game.

    From what I recall you just need to be careful with the first boss and don't try to rush things. I think I died once on the demo but did it first time on full game but that was a long time ago. And yeah it was pretty trolly (but not as trolly as the final route boss on Drakengard 3 (and 1 apparently but I haven't played through that one yet)).

    Never encountered Baibu's problem though. I can't remember any major bugs on PS4 but again it has been a while..

    Dodge like crazy on the sawblades. You can chain-dodge for almost total invulnerability. This isn't Dark Souls.

    Ended up just re doing that bit on easy. Moved it back to normal now but having done it I feel a bit silly. Think I just rushed the first time

    Yeah, it's just not that hard. And it's very easy on the 2nd route, provided you do some side missions and ideally equip an exp-boosting chip or two.
