    U1099989's Nier Automata (PC)

    [September 27, 2018 06:30:41 PM]
    As I left the bunker, I was drawn into the game by the beautiful world and the freedom to explore I was given. And as I went to help the resistance, the machine enemies I found were progressively getting weirder. Some would just stand around, some were violent, but as I went out into the desert, they started to talk. Asking for help, saying "run away", talking about the pain they were in. 2B was hesitant to attack, but 9S reminded her they couldn't speak, they were just repeating random strings of words. But as I progressed, it got worse. The machines were wearing tribal outfits, attempting to have sex, and pretending to care for a child. After fighting me with a large horde of machines, they came together and made what appeared to be another android. I didn't attack it, and it didn't move or attack me, as the game urged me to get rid of it, I begrudgingly attacked it. The "thing" started to evolve, learning how to dodge, shield, and return attacks. After a long battle, I stabbed him with 9S, and I thought he was dead. As 2B walked away, he emerged from his own body as another android, healed. I couldn't tell what even was going on anymore as I ran away.

    As I progressed farther, I encountered the first boss, a hulking monolith of a robot. It looked nothing like the enemies I had previously faced, but I fought on. As the fight drew on, it started chanting kill, kill, kill, kill. 2B acknowledged this, commenting that she didn't know the machines were capable of sentience. After losing my partner 9S, and using the robots own arm to defeat it, 2B is then greeted by three more of these giant machines, chanting kill. 2B, showing more emotion over 9S than ever before, use their black cubes to destroy the area around them, killing them and the machines. This is when 2B and 9S are resurrected, letting the player feel as if they'd already lost a character. It's introduced that all these humans are androids created by humans to get rid of the alien machines that invade Earth. 2B is different than she was before, she kept her memory of the incident, she starts to show snippets of emotion, what she told 9S, to discard.

    As I've started the game, the first impressions I'm given of the enemies and environment are of how cold it is, how industrialized and machine-like everything is. As the enormous map is introduced, there are only a few things with any emotion, a few birds, some greenery, and your partner 9S, who shows a few emotions when first talking with 2B. He states how glad he is to have a partner, and is immediately scorned by 2B, who states emotions are prohibited, causing him to fluster up. This happens in between snippets of combat between robot enemies, as you continue, the robots adapt, coming in different shapes and sizes, and slowly increase in difficulty. I'm excited for what's to come.
