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

Platinum announce arcade shmup Sol Cresta, maybe not as a joke this time

After announcing retro-styled shoot ’em up Sol Cresta as an April Fool’s joke last year, Bayonetta devs PlatinumGames have used this April Fool’s Day to… announce retro-styled shoot ’em up Sol Cresta? Supposedly for really reals this time? A collaboration with Hamster Corporation, it’s inspired by 80s shmups Moon Cresta and Terra Cresta, and supposedly launching this year. For real. Maybe. April Fool’s Day is bad. 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…

Nier: Automata’s final secret has been discovered

Nier: Automata is a secretive enough game already, I gather, what with its multiple endings and unpredictable story and all. Apparently there’s still been one pesky secret to uncover, as teased by the developers themselves, which one clever player has finally managed to uncover after hours of work. 2B officially has nothing left to hide.

Have You Played… NieR: Automata?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. I don’t often replay games, and if I do, it is because they are good. To complete NieR: Automata, you need to replay the game three times. Normally, I’d hate a game’s guts for doing this to me, but you know what? I’d do it three more times for NieR: Automata (actually, maybe not because it is quite long, but let’s go along with the idea that I would). (more…)
