    Barnes's Nier: Automata (PS4)

    [September 26, 2018 10:57:32 PM]
    Seems like I left off yesterday right before things picked up. Played for a lot longer today, about 2-3 hours. Honestly would rather be playing right now than typing this up. I think the biggest part to talk about would be the amusement park section. Think section made me spectacularly happy, I loved seeing all the little adorable robots with balloons having a good time. Some of this game choices seem like a better version of Spec Ops : The line to me. Standard game-play would tell you when a giant enemy that you are told is dangerous comes out you have to kill it. Nines even tells you that you should attack and kill this giant boss. In this play through I think I'm going to be consistent and only even attack after an enemy attacks. So I walked up to the tank and no hostile actions where taken. I just took the staircase and left them on their little party float.While I do love the combat and boss battles so far, the boss battle after this made me wish there was a peaceful pacifist solution to every battle. I would love to do a run of this game seeing just how few machines I could harm. First time through this battle I hesitated at the hacked android bodies and was hoping there was some way to save them. In some ways it seems out of character for 2B but as long as the mission doesn't require it I will not kill an enemy.

    Started out Nier and I knew from the get go that this game was gonna take a bit more time to get a reasonable way through. Instead of the usual half hour play sessions I ended up playing this first time for an hour and a half. Good start, the game was engaging. Full disclosure this was my roommates favorite game so I'd seen a bit of game-play from him here and there. Turns out my roommate is a monster, and played this game the most genocidal way. Machines are from the start of the game set up by the characters as a thoughtless enemy, your whole purpose and reason for being is to destroy them. It's very telling then that the first open area of the game the majority of machines there are just kind of... Minding their own business. Non hostile to you. My friend likes nier's combat so I only ever saw him Chewing through the machines in this area farming them for experience points. I instead, sat in the water with them and did some fishing.
