    Just take your time and realise the saws move in a pattern.

    I switched to Easy and made it through so I'm now in the base about to go on the next mission.
    Should I buy anything 1ith my 10,500g?
    Any tips on upgrades/buying/selling?

    Cheers

    @Armoured_Bear Don't worry too much about buying stuff for now. Advance the plot a bit more then take a look at your gear in a few hours.

    That said, any chips that grant you health regen are nice to have as early as possible.

    Pro-tip: remove your OS chip to save on space.

    save your game first ;)

    @Armoured_Bear

    Yeah, health regen and item auto-use are a must and make it much harder to die. I also had an exp boost chip equipped all the time.

    In any case, I did it all tonight. The best game I'd played in a very long time. Combat isn't amazing, but everything else is.

    Is it at all possible to get through the final credits on your own? I had to give up after a few dozen tries, I really wasn't getting anywhere.

    @dominalien Yes, I got through the final credits on my own. Probably right on the try before the prompt appeared.

    Probably helped that I'd just been on a massive Bullet Hell shooter spree. A mixture of Cave shooters and Touhou. Compared to those, the sequence in question isn't too bad.

    @Rogueywon Yeah, I'm not versed in bullet hell shooters at all. I bow my head humbly in respect of your skill. :-)

    That said, just the other day I was talking to someone on another forum I frequent (sacrilege, I know) and they couldn't get past the hacking tower as 9S. Which, while not easy, took me 10 minutes perhaps. So, I'm not the worst. I think.

    Sigh.
    I thought I was at the end (Religion stuff chapter) but seems not.
    It's very stylish, nice controls, possibly interesting story but it's not a very good video game tbh.
    I'll persevere to finish one play through hopefully but the bullet hell sections nearly had me dumping it.

    Fuck, navigation is shit, the environments are dull and full of invisible wall shit, the only good stuff is the character design and story. Make it end!!

    @Armoured_Bear That's more or less how I felt at this point.

    This is one of my games of the generation.

    Ok, I finished th play through, started the 2nd one playing as 9S but there is no way in hell I'll spend so many hours replaying the game several times when I was so close to rage quitting with one play through, especially one bullet hell section.

    I'll watch them on Youtube instead.

    @Armoured_Bear I'd really stick with it. Route B starts out looking like a straight replay of Route A, but as you get further into it, the divergences get greater. 2B's a combat model and only sees what's in front of her. 9S has a wider perspective.

    Then Route C is set after A and B and is different story anyway.

    Id happily play Route C but not all the way through B to get to it :(

    I am surprised no-one has mentioned that it seems Nier Replicant is getting an update for PS4, Xbone and PC. Personally I preferred the idea of the Gestalt version but not played the variant so...

    Hopefully this will be followed up by a Drakengard 3 update/all in one version at some point.

    @One_Vurfed_Gwrx phenomenal news. I've played Nier three times through and rate it so highly, I cannot wait for it.

    Also hope for a Drakengard collection!

    Replicant's the version we didn't get in the West previously, isn't it?

    Yes, Brother NieR.

    Sounds like they're changing quite a bit though, almost sounds like a remake/reimagining.

    Also, A-tomato is coming to Game Pass.
