Nier: Automata ‘secret church’ mystery leads to mod tools and memes

For several weeks, a Nier: Automata player has caused intrigue and excitement by posting mysterious images and videos from an area no one had seen before. Was it a secret area? An unfinished area? A hoax? A mod? If it was a mod, it was far more complex than any so far. Turns out, that’s because a group of fans have secretly been making their own mod tools, and plan to release them soon. In the meantime, I’ve enjoyed pranksters memeing on the mystery by creating secret churches in other games, including Half-Life 2 and Super Mario 64. Read more

Nier Automata on the Switch was meant to be: it’s the best game to side quest on the go

Nier Automata’s Nintendo Switch release will allow you to see the dirt under the fingernails of Yoko Taro’s beautiful world. When the original Nier came out in the forgotten year of 2010, one of the more common complaints were the side quests: they were long, often grindy, and not particularly engaging, making it more frustrating that some of them have weapons hidden away inside them that were necessary to get all of the endings. Luckily, its 2017 sequel Nier Automata improved upon that by providing stories that flesh out the world and its inhabitants in ways that felt fundamental to…

Nier: Automata is finally getting a patch on Steam

As much as I adore Nier: Automata (degree: a lot), I cannot deny the PC version is a bit bum and has been since it launched four years ago. It’s daft that we’ve had to use a fan-made fix to run it in the correct resolution or stop cutscenes stuttering. Square Enix did us dirty. But oh my giddy aunt, the stars have aligned and today they finally announced an “upgrade patch” for the post-apocalyptic RPG’s Steam version. Presumably with the fixes from the recent Microsoft Store edition? Read more

Nier Automata players review-bomb it on Steam to demand a better port

Square Enix’s mistakes with the original PC release of Nier Automata are coming back to haunt it.Last week, Nier Automata – alongside an assortment of games – came to PC Game Pass. Shortly after the game went live, players discovered something very curious: this isn’t the same PC port on sale on Steam.Usually, that just means the Windows Store version is limited in some ways, but this is one of the rare occasions where the Game Pass version is actually superior to one on Steam. It turns out, this is a completely different port.Reports of improved performance, proper windowed full…
