    -fully voiced
    -possibility of new endings
    -Okabe re-recorded the whole score, new music included

    Interesting. So it's specifically the Replicant version. I prefer the cromagnon dad version rest of the world got, though.

    Anyone figure out the meaning of the version number? Could just be random digits of course, but the ... makes me think it's referencing some mathematical constant or ratio.

    I feel like Gestalt would be better. But Japs just can't resist making all important characters teenagers.

    What's wrong with spamming spear dash and blood spear the entire game? :M

    When the fuck is this going to be out?

    Papa Nier or bust.

    I had enough of emotional twinks in Automata, I'd almost prefer to play on emulation at this point.

    Cool, I'll just wait for this instead of playing Gestalt on RPCS3.

    I too used to think that Papa nier was better but after reading up on differences I changed my mind. Yoko Taro can't do wrong. I am going to buy it on principle but I probably won't play it right away because I did Nier on rpcs3 not long ago.

    It's the square root of 1.5. So, there's one meaning.

    It could also be some alternate designation of

    the loop
    Replicant takes place in, but I dunno.

    I will buy the PS4 and the Steam version because Yoko Taro can do no wrong and always knows best.

    I like twinks, but think Gestalt is the superior Nier.

    Unfortunately the developer is not actually PlatinumGames, so it's probably best to wait for reviews and let's plays before making the decision to buy.

    The original Nier was also very grind heavy. Getting crafting materials was a huge slog.

    You talking about the original Nier or Automa?
    Because Automata's combat is not bad.

    Nier combat wasn't bad too. It was simple but serviceable. It had its weight and feel of progression was there. I never got bored roflstomping hordes of enemies with combos+magic.

    Not just crafting. Many quests also required several runs of the same area to get the required items.

    I guess the intent is that you need to play the game X times to get the real ending, so you can spread the grind out. But grinding problems are not solved by adding more grind...

    Taro seems to like that style of quest design. Automata had a fair amount of repetition as well.

    The game itself makes fun of you if I remember right: one questgiver goes "Ah, you're the retard that goes around collecting shit for everyone. Hey, I have this useless package delivery, go and obey son" and you accept the quest.

    I seriously hope they'll give us the Gestalt version tho, it must not be such an insane amount of work and giving more options is always good. Seriously, it ain't a remaster, the assets are all there.

    it's better

    automata is one of the most mediocre games that ever became popular. people only like it because "muh platinum gameplay" even though it's on-par w/ the first (and actually worse because it scales back the bullet hell aspect) and "muh robot waifu"

    Yoko Taro admits in one of the interviews that his design is inspired by pinball. So repetition of the same sandbox level that gradually reveal aspects of the game. It applies to all his games if you think about it - it's the same game remade over again.
