Nier was hardly a standout in gameplay unless you count its fun use of ripping-off other gaming genres

Don't make me hurt you.

*groan*  It certainly wasn't too thrilling.  The bullet hell was kinda cool -- if you like bullet hell (another way to see it is really lazy attack patterns).  But the game obviously made a point to [at least] parody Zelda.  I'm not saying it was bad, but it wasn't exactly original, and it's been done better.

ANYWAYS.  I'm guessing I'm not the only one who noticed that the chicka with the flower in her eye looks exactly like (or very similar to) Kainés.

...I wonder if Evans is coming back to sing a bit.

I loved Drakengard 1 a 2's first cutscene....because, y'know...shit is still "normal" then.

The Drakengard games have a lot of potential though, I love the mythology and world, and while I don't wonder if they'll "lighten up" (mind you, I can do without the giant cannibal babies), they obviously can't hit the same plot a third time (the seals, the red sky, etc.) -- so I just wonder what the plan is.
Either way, their poor world just can't catch a fucking break.  I'm already sure the third game is just gonna end with blowing up the world so no one else has to deal with anymore shit (yeah, it's that bad, read on at the Tropes site).

Also, a Nier sequel I don't think /can/ be in the cards any more than maybe another reference in Drakengard
IIRC, the end of Nier basically indicates that humans *will* die out, and your daughter isn't really cured, and in one of the endings you don't even exist anymore.
Even still, I wonder what the series will be like *without* Cavia.  Quite frankly, the only thing they really had going in Nier was the talent that's just been announced for Drakengard3 (the composer, artist, and director/writer combo); Nier was hardly a standout in gameplay unless you count its fun use of ripping-off other gaming genres (from Zelda to Diabo's 3/4 perspective in maze dungeons, to even bullet hell segments) and kinda fun spread of spells at your disposal.  I'm actually optimistic and hoping for better gameplay this time around; with all due respect to [the now defunct] Cavia, they really didn't have a good grasp of how to make a game that was all that fun to play.

...anyways, I also liked Drakengard II; thought it was pretty cool.  Urick bumps it half a letter grade.

EDIT:  Now having played Nier, Ending E in Drakengard is pretty cool.

Scans.  Flower out of the eye.  Sounds painful. D:

God I love Fujisaki's weapon designs.  They look like you could ...kill...things with 'em (I'm out of wit/creative commentary).

omgomgomg!!!  YES!!!

It's nice that they're not just "reviving" an old title, bur "coming back" for it.  I hope it can be good, I'm excited and I've seen dick all.

It would be smart to get him back... All the series *really* needed was a revamp of gameplay.

This is great:


(Though I have no idea why the video description calls it a prank...it's not a prank, it's science!)

Bonus round, Smeagol sings Mad World:


Loved the tire bit, my dad and I had a good chuckle over it. x)

I like both versions of Mad World for effectively using two different tempos and moods.
I like sitting and listening to Gary's version more, but I love signing the Tears for Fears version aloud more.
6337  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Drakengard 3 (aka; how to damn "nier" lose your shit about old title) on: March 12, 2013, 06:53:11 PM

Who the fuck saw this happening??

Good?  There's a lot of potential with the series (the idea of forming pacts is wonderful, IMO).  


Few things:
= Sad it's not Cavia...meaning: gameplay *could* get better, but I doubt story will be unless they get the same depressing sadist to write it *CHECK!!! (Director!)
= I hope the same artist is back...shit, I'll have to buy another artbook then. D:  Drakengard2 is one of the best I have *CHECK!!! (Artist!)
= Weird singing bard concept... reminds me of one of the sword level up stories though:

Level 1.
   What has happened to me?
   Every time I wield this sword -
   every time I see blood pour
   out of my victim’s neck – I’m
   overwhelmed with unspeakable
   Level 2.
   Crimson blood paints the street
   red. It stains my pale body scarlet.
   Its vivid hue is burned into my
   eyes and won’t leave my mind...
   Blood, blood, blood, blood.
   Level 3.
   The blood gushes out with a happy
   When it’s all gone, I’m sad, so I find
   new flesh and tear it up! It’s best
   when it’s warm, but I like it cold too!
   When it’s dry, it’s not so red, which
   isn’t much fun, but it’s still blood,
   so I still like it very, very much!
   Blood, blood, blood, blood !
   Level 4.
   BlOody, bLoOdY, BLooDY, bLOod!!
   ReD, CrImSOn, SCaRLeT!!!

999 is a good game played before your go to bed, to scare you a little (I beat the True Ending at like 4 AM, tired as hell... I was frightened by all the nasty plot twists and mind-fuckeries)

I got Atelier Ayesha!  I played it for an hour because I have no other time to spare.
I'm glad the graphics have become so awesome for the series, but they still have some trouble with backgrounds.  Nevertheless, yay!

Dice- I like the term "coochie sponge."  I might start using it; hopefully people won't confuse it for the contraceptive sponge from back in the day. 

Haha glad you like it.  i feel even "tampon" is "TMI" these days...

Thursday -- Test 25%
Friday -- Report [DONE] 5%
Monday -- Paper 15%
Wednesday -- Paper 40%!!!!
Friday -- Report 5% (may need extension)

Fuck my asshole...  Bye!  Bye everyone!!  I'm off to live in books!

(1) I liked the Seductive Arts thing... it was punny.
(2a) I normally hate big kits like that because they're usually just basic colours and nothing more...
(2b) ... oh wait, that seems to have like...every colour of every sort....
(3)  Eugh, it costs too much time and love to keep buying traditional media stuff.  No wonder it's all digital (though no digital effect can make up for what traditional can do)

Clearly you haven't played JRPGs

^ THis is a man.

But yeah, it looks way too effeminate.  "I'm digging the silhouette", if that's a real compliment.

Can't imagine what I must look like by this point... my face may have just vanished by now.
Love it and the handicapped Miss, that was grand. xD
