    1345678coko's Nier Automata (PC)

    [September 25, 2018 10:40:44 PM]
    Other than the nostalgia rush and the questionable achievement "What are you doing...?", outside of playing the game, I decided to take a listen to the soundtrack on YouTube and again reminded me of the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain with the vocals being very present in the game. This makes me question, what made the creators decide to use a foreign style of music in a dystopian JRPG. Other games like God Eater, A Post apocalyptic JRPG, uses techno mixed with rock. I believe that the developers of Nier Automata had the intention of creating immersion and aesthetic when in a certain area of the world. I think the idea of immersion was taken from real word examples. For example, the track Memories of Dust, has more of a enhanced North African/ Middle Eastern feel to it when the player travels through the Desert Zone. I think one can see an ethical issue when games take musical influence from other cultures and can question if the developers are fully understanding and researching a cultures' musical instruments and musicality.

    Playing another session of Nier Automata was very exciting, about 35 minutes in I paused the game and decided to take a look at all of the achievements. I was very intrigued by one of them and that being the achievement "What are you Doing...?". Honestly with a majority of the achievements being related to either boss farming, challenges with the combat mechanics, or challenges. "What are you Doing...?" aka. the look up 2B's skirt, is a very interesting achievement that the developers implemented in some way with an unknown purpose. Maybe it's just a cheeky achievement or roots out the pervert in ourselves. Either way, it's one of the most weirdest and questionable achievements I've ever seen. I makes us players question "what just happened"?

    Replaying this game is refreshing for a player who enjoys hack and slash and role playing games like Devil May Cry and Final Fantasy 15. After sometime comparing the difficulties anyone can conclude that normal or hard is the right difficulty for returning players because easy turns the game into a virtual novel (not literally) and very hard turns the game into Dark Souls. The most memorable factors in the game is the option to pick between three character 2B, 9S, and A2, how each character's relationship affects the story, and the fact that it is a Japanese role-playing game tells us players that there is a lot of hard work put into that game. I am excited for what the game has in store since I haven't pick it up since March.
