I don't want to know about your 'reversible sleeve' Z...

Most normal people call that a prolapse, btw.

It's out the steelbook.

I've only had about 2 hours today but this is reet up my alley. Plus I've already completed the game with the W ending. I'll add it to my Finish 52 and move on...

You can jump up ladders too!

Over 10 hours in now. Loving it.

Took 10 hours to finish Route A, so I've technically finished a playthrough but it's clear that that's not the end of the story because the "ending" is rather unsatisfying.

I've started Route B and it started differently enough to the start of Route A but retreading some of the same game with another character isn't quite as interesting as I'd like.

... and I'm going to say that this is because the combat isn't as deep as it should be. I like these Bayonetta and Devil May Cry games, even if I'm not the best at learning their systems, but Neir is a button masher. I just couldn't fathom how to get any good or exciting combos going no matter how many times I changed up the weapons. It always came down to just smashing square or just mashing triangle. BUT that's enough for Route A because 2B's moveset is alright however once you change character you're stripped down to one move (smash square) and that character has a rubbish moveset with no combos at all for any weapons so suddenly the combat becomes a bit of a chore. Instead you're expected to do a hacking mini game for many enemies. In fact, combat is largely useless (no matter your level or power) for some enemies so you're forced to do the minigames. I didn't care for them much for regular enemies.

So, so far so good, and I must be about halfway through the story but I'm waiting for some revelations or something that blows my mind as to why this game is supposed to be so legendary. I can feel it bubbling underneath so maybe something exciting is coming up.

The second playthrough gets really good when the story takes you to the drowned ruins. Though I enjoy all the extra info you get playing as 9S anyway.

Finished all endings A-E. Gotta say, I really enjoyed it. There's some epic battles right at the end and some pretty touching scenes. I was surprised with the character switches and the lack of a certain playable character. Really nicely done.

Only problem is: I've only got a rudimentary grasp over what the fuck happened and now I've got to go and watch lore videos to figure it all out. I never managed to get into those bunkers with the exploding robots either or figured out how. I'm not playing Neir 1 but I might watch some lore videos on that to find out how it connects to this.

Seriously though, what a great game filled with a lot of heart and soul.
