Same. Supposedly the next Steam seasonal sale starts in about 4 days, so I guess I won't have to wait long.
I'm leaving now to go find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

I would recommend the PS4 version, because the Steam version had ... issues. Not sure if they are fixed now ... but a fanmod/patch exists afaik.

Hmm... I had a look around for any news of an official patch and came up empty. Looks like I'll be waiting for a while longer then. Hopefully there will be some end of financial year sales soon, as the current sale on PSN doesn't include Nier and its $99 AUD at full price. Thanks for the warning.

Let's be honest, there's not going to be an official patch - best we can hope for is fan-made one, like this one:http://kotaku.com/fan-creates-patch-to- ... 1793659146

So it turns out that the biggest issues with the PC port of NieR:Automata are a bug in how fullscreen resolution works and the global illumination settings being off the chain. The mod mentioned previously fixes both issues and apart from that I had no issue running at 1080p @ 60fps. There are some crashing issues on Nvidia 700 series cards as well, but I didn't see any during my run.

I finished N:A last night and damn does that game hit like a freight train. I might go back to it at some point, but that's going to take a bit of investment, so I might let it cool off for a while. I'm honestly not sure what I'm going to play next. I also got Civ 6 in the last steam sale so maybe that, but at this point in time I'm still reeling a bit from ending E.

So yeah, I echo what Ralexand said earlier. NieR:Automata is a fantastic game and I highly recommend you give it a try.

It's certainly the most polished Yoko Taro game I've played. I've played Drakengard 3 and the start of NieR (the first one) and while they haven't been awful, but there's always been little niggles and periods where the game will chug badly. I had a couple issues of slowdown in N:A in the desert area, but apart from that I was able to maintain a solid 60 fps. Also, the movement and combat controls are so smooth.

If there's one thing I miss from Drakengard 3 that isn't in N:A, its the pitch black humour. I realise that it doesn't fit a game like NieR tone-wise, but some of my favourite moments in Drakengard 3 were the times the game lightened up an otherwise bleak story by injecting some humour. For example, early on in the game Zero (the main character) loses her arm in a cutscene. Almost immediately afterwards, the flower growing in her eye (its a long story) blooms and she grows a new body. Later on, this happens. [NSFW] Also, this appears as a part of the cutscene after you defeat the first boss:.

Drakenguard is another issue of its own ... but I love how Drakenguard 1 and NieR are connected. TOKYO BEAST QUEEN - it is absolutely insane.

I really want a remaster of all the Drakengard games and NieR - then I have the chance to play all of them!

And yes, i watched a lot about DG3 and ... yeah. Its pretty crazy. :D (Zero is bae btw)

I was playing Deus Ex human revolution director's cut on 360 but the 360 died so now I'm playing uncharted 2 on PS3.

It's only a matter of time now.

Finally got a copy of Stellaris in the last steam sale and promptly lost more hours than I'm game to admit. I'm at the tail end of my first game and my federation is in a bit of a tight situation. One of the fallen empires (a faction that starts the game in a dormant state) has awoken and promptly declared war on most of the galaxy and not long after, the end game crisis kicked off, flooding a patch of federation space with hostile beings from another dimension. Thankfully I have pretty good relations with the other adjacent empires, so hopefully I can more or less ignore them and try to focus on the two fronted war I've found myself in.

I'm currently playing Dragon's Dogma dark arisen.
It's a really cool RPG.
