    Brando Calrissian's Nier Automata (PS4)

    [September 26, 2018 05:11:54 PM]
    It's interesting that you can Buy HUD elements. The robots I found were Wearing clothing, talking, amd generally seemed scared. I Felt bad and tried to find peaceful solution, but game forces the player to attack eventually. They formed a wierd cacoon and produced a Wierd Android type machine. It was really hard for me to beat and took a few tries, but afterwards it basically reincarnated itself from the dead body. It also seemed to have blood. I'm not sure where this will go, but it's definitely important.

    I was very excited to play today. I took greater care when looking at the main menu system. I Noticed the main menu looks like it's glitching out with lines coming across like an old VHS movie, but more digitized. The game title looks like it's trying to be taken over by something or maybe like it's breaking away from something.
    Seems as if you're memories were uploaded to base and then you were given a body. This was interesting to find out. The game then presented a nice cinematic that gives the backstory. Apparently an invading alien race of machine life-forms took over and the few survivors fled to moon. They made and android army and send them on missions to recover earth.
    The Tutorial for UI menu system was interesting and helped set the tone of the game. There seemed to be some sort of alternative response system to questions that I'm unsure if will change story, but really hope it does. Setting self destruct to on feels surreal, it's strange that they make you set this and think about what it means. Looking back I wonder what would happen if I left it off.
    During this first mission the Animals don't attack you. I decided to leave them alone, thinking that the game wanted me to recognize that nature needs to win this battle in general, not just humanity. What is strange is that even some of the enemies don't attack if unprovoked. I'm not sure why they chose to implement that.
    Meeting other androids really adds insight into what they want the player to think about. For instance the supply trader has been contemplating fixing knee, but it is the only original part left of his original body and he wonders if replacing it makes him no longer him. This is especially interesting when considering you just recently self-destructed and are in a completely different body. I would argue that humanity is in the non-physical aspects.

    Just started Nier: Automata and I have to say that I'm impressed. The game hooked me and made me want to play more. I've played up to the point where you can save the game. So far I have concluded that this game makes an ethical statement about machine reliance and how it could go so incredibly wrong. The game seems to be a post apocalyptic world and I think the main character and supporting characters are android like humanoids. The enemies are obviously machines. At one point your support person, I think the name was 2B, says something to the effect of "nothing machines do have a purpose or makes sense." It seems that machines have either taken over or are in the process of trying to take over, it is unclear at this point. I believe the main character and supporting characters are android like because when your partner is hurt the discombobulated limbs seem to be mechanical and there isn't any blood. Their eyes are also covered at all times. The names are seemingly 2 character hexadecimal codes. Maybe it has been some time after a devastating war becasue there's a scene where you are supposed to be mesmerized by the presence of birds.

    In terms of functionality the multiple automated camera angles are fun and interesting. The fights are satisfying and hard enough to challenge without making it impossible. I loved being able to temporarily use my enemies massive arm as a weapon against him - very satisfying. I also like that there seems to be multiple ways to get to the objective point. Thorough exploration led me in a few circles. This feels less linear than other games, even though the outcomes, so far, haven't changed based on route.
