    Looking up weapon locations for my route D playthrough, apparently the three I'm missing are from route A.

    Dammit.

    Them showing you losing all your data was so fucking effective, especially in a game where losing and regaining memories means so much.

    Gonna talk and think about this more but for now bed!
    I did not say "yes" to that final request.
    I left a message, but I didn't make the sacrifice play. "I'll do it when I Platinum it" I tell myself. "It'll be my final grand send-off to Nier Automata".

    I feel guilty for not doing it. Videogames should not be able to guilt-trip me, dammit!

    yeah, but I did all my chapter select shenanigans after route C. I guess it makes more sense to work on completion only after I sacrifice my game in route E, though.

    Okay cool. I thought I had offhandedly read something that those releases were missing tracks, so I figured I better check first.

    I think the physical soundtrack not available in NA has the hacking remixes for all the songs as well.

    I did it and regretted it the next day. Then a kind soul here said that they did the same and used it as a good excuse to replay the game later on. And now I agree!

    the soundtrack is also missing a few songs like the "This Cannot Continue" and "Become As Gods" versions of the desert battle theme, and only has the Japanese version of that shop theme with lyrics. Still A++ soundtrack.

    importing the version with hacking tracks is like 80-90 on amazon

    Preordering it from Amazon Japan was only like $30-40.

    And it came with a bonus disc of those alternate song versions you get on playthrough B.

    Pretty sure the word censored in Adam's talk with 9S was kill, not fuck.

    The thing that got me on the replay
    (Full spoilers)
    When 9S first meets 2B in the bunker and does the Glory to Mankind, and she has the clenched fist because she knows it's all bullshit and because of that she has to keep killing 9S and oh my god theres so much going on all the time

    I feel like a lot of stories that have big twist like this some things fall apart on a rewatch but there's just so many layers to these lines and these scenes.

    Yeah, Yoko Taro is extremely good at using a big plot twist to recontextualize both what you're going to see and what you've already seen.

    Which is the hallmark of a good twist.

    Oh yeah, I saw this in the Final Fantasy Brave Exvius thread

    The JP version of the game is gonna be getting Nier Automata characters



    It's unclear whether the global version will get this crossover, but it's certainly possible

    A few moments that stood out to me:
    Anemone mistakes 2B for A2. 2B corrects her and then doesn't press the issue at all.
    At the end of the one quest where you hack the pod and find out the client is an E unit, 9S has no idea that the E series exists, but 2B just says "Some things are better left unknown."
    When the other YoRHa units become infected in the C intro, before you go back to the bunker, 2B doesn't hesitate at all before telling 9S to disable her IFF.
    She had no problem killing the three YoRHa deserters in an earlier quest, either, and even rebukes 9S when he complains about being unable to capture them.

    I think 2B has been doing her particular job for a very long time. 9S is just the only one she's had to kill multiple times.

    Weight of the World's lyrics take on a new light when sung by a guilty 2E

    And THAT'S why she harps on about emotions. Because it makes killing 9S less difficult on her

    I'm starting to think the voice actors strike was secretly one of the best things to happen to the industry

    because it meant big budget videogames had to start using lesser known names

    and these lesser known names are by and large huge goddamned nerds themselves

    I was absolutely sure 9S was voiced by Yuri Lowenthal until I checked

    Alright. Well. Route E:
    My data has been added to the well. I do not regret this in the slightest.

    Means I can do the game right, this time. Actually concentrate on collection and such.

    And hit fools with an Iron Pipe.

    I dunno if the idea of companies going over well-known VAs to starving performers to bypass a strike is a Good Thing(tm), though.

    Kyle McCarley's stream is adorable though, and his reactions to the beginning of C is... yo damn.

    It's good only in so far as the relative unknowns got a chance to shine.
