Who the fuck saw this happening??

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

http://www.siliconera.com/2013/03/12/drakengard-3-drag-on-dragoon-3-in-development/

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!)
= PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD AND FOOD; BRING BACK SAME COMPOSER FROM NIER :DDDDDDD *CHECK!!! (Composer!)
= 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:

Quote
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
   joy.
  
   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
   splash!
  
   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!!
   CRiMsOn BLOOD!! BLoODy RED!!
   ReD, CrImSOn, SCaRLeT!!!

Get Nier's scenario writer onboard and I'm interested.

Yoko Taro could be a possibility for it since he worked with them on a (mobile or browser iirc) game after cavia got absorbed.
Apparently he was picked because they wanted a gloomy game.

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

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

They really need him back. Last thing we need is another Noway being pants on head retarded/anime bullshit superpowers while trying to rescue the flaming pants on head retarded damsel in distress from the either the comically evil/pants on head retarded badguys or Caim.

Then again, it not being Nier 2 disappoints me as well since it means no Emil's super happy fun time with the impending alien invasion. But then again, we could be seeing the coverage of one or more of the short stories that occurred during the whole 'Fall of Jericho/Red Eyes' clusterfuck that preceded Nier (but again, the fact that this is being called Drakengard 3 probably rules out that possibility as well).


Also the link contains some rather confusing details. Hopefully that'll get sorted out over the next week.

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I've never actually played a Drakengard game, but after Nier I'm intrigued.  Should I go back and play the first two?  Is the gameplay as bad as they say?

I think people who are expecting Nier 2 are going to be disappointed with the game.

That said, I'm interested in how it turns out.

And yeah, ho lee shit. Of all franchises to revive right at the end of the gen, this is not one I expected.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

It depends on the "they" you're thinking of.
I'd call it a mixed bag (overall solid, though) of oddly placed mechanics and fun but (pretty easily) repetitive genocide.
The magic is really neat to experiment with, and dragon riding is hit or miss.
D2 fleshes out its story and present better than D1, and makes some gameplay improvements, especially that dumb camera from the first.

I'm probably the only guy on this forum that couldn't get past Nier's utter shit controls and went back to listening to the game's soundtrack instead.

Well, it's far from the worst controlling I played, plus in the second half of the game you can get a weapon that just trashes everything, letting you steamroll just to see the story.

EDIT: Caught this on Neogaf:
Quote from: crinale
Yoko and Okabe are back confirmed :D

EDIT 2: Got more:

Quote from: duckroll
According to the regular guy who breaks news on 2ch:

Creative Director: Yoko Taro
Character Design: Kimihiko Fujisaki
Music Director: Keiichi Okabe

Dragon aerial sequences are also confirmed.

I'll update the OP when we have a "visual" confirmation.

So yeah, really interested now. Just play decently enough or let me steamroll the game rather than being a nightmare like Drakengard 1 seemingly was.

This will be what Lair should have been!

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.

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).
