Our NieR thread did really well for an odd release like this (i.e.; where gameplay wasn't the selling point of "a game").

That's fine and I'm not against games that push their narrative to be something else but as a game is not only about its narrative but also its mechanics and gameplay. That's half of the experience after all.

Maybe this doesn't mean anything but the swords of Nowe and Zero look similar to me...

She does.

Reposting this from the bottom of one of my earlier wall o' rant posts from the second page.

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).

Hate to say it, but that sword looks familiar (also the blonde chick, I hope to god they're not Noway & Manna's children).

Lotsa red, lotsa white.... lotsa red staining white.  Lovely piano.  Graphics are "ok", looking forward to clips n stuff. 

...I also hope we can get more than just "level-to-level" gameplay, and if it is, it'll hopefully be done better this time around or make gameplay more interactive and varied.

Getting an 'those two queens from Alice in Wonderland' vibes from the characters. The main character especially, reminds me of the concept of painting the white roses red (and the flower in the eye doesn't help matters either).

You know, while I'm really liking the theme that plays in the official site is kind of a shame that we a never getting some of those mean-spirited melodies from the first Drakengard again...

I'm mixed.  I agree, but all the same, I'm sick of "evil latin chanting" for an epic-anything theme.

Not a fan.  it's really "chaotic" (granted, it fit the game for that, but I don't find it as "listenable" on a normal basis).... hmm, then again, it might be perfect in that respect.  The tracks are pretty good, but I kinda like the more melodic D2 better

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXVEIXFVAiQ&feature=share&list=PL1300B7E63FAD5328  D2 Vein of Grief
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wr5VgYeSSSI&feature=share&list=PL1300B7E63FAD5328 Plains of Pity
http://youtu.be/rQY7D6fdU_k Twilight Hill -- which sounds like it came out of a SeikenDensetsu game

Hm, but now I'm curious for D3 since it's the NieR dude, and none of the composers from D1 and 2???  I think?

While not the best soundtrack I've ever heard, I've got to give credit where credit's due since its still impressive to be able to pick up on the classical pieces the game's music was remixed from.

@Dice: From D2 I like this one:

Symphonic Poem 「Forbidden Prelude」

Hm, but now I'm curious for D3 since it's the NieR dude, and none of the composers from D1 and 2???  I think?

Keiichi Okabe is in charge of the soundtrack for D3, he was one of the four composers responsable for the music in Nier. None of the others composers that worked in D1 and 2 were back for Nier.

Though the music in Drakengard and Nier didn't took just a few people to make (at least according to VGMdb which I doubt has wrong information about this).

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.

at least people didnt deceptively sell you on the game based on a character thats not even playable. about 15 mins in i returned the game.

Drakengard 3 high-res artwork and screenshots -- Gematsu

"Following our first low-res look (640×360, boo!) at Drakengard 3, Square Enix has released the same screenshots, and some new artwork, of its Access Games-developed PlayStation 3 RPG sequel today, this time in 720p high-resolution."

It kinda looks like a Dreamcast game... in HD.
