Nier: Replicant ver.1.22474487139...

Yes, that large number string and ellipsis are part of the title.

So the original Nier is getting a remaster for current gen consoles and Steam.

Judging by the title you're Big Brother instead of Dad in this go around. Since the original was based off Gestalt.

While this is neat news, it's kind of a shame that no Switch port was announced. That, and it would have been nice to have the option to switch between either the "brother" or "daddy" versions of the story.... but whatevs. Still looking forward to this!

Wonder who might voice Nier Brother. Then again, will the actors return to do redo the game? Laura Bailey's original performance especially when Kaine talked with Weiss sure was hilarious.

I have to wonder why they picked Replicant over Gestalt, I found the father setup more engaging.

The original Nier had two versions yes. Supposedly the Replicant ver. with the younger Nier is considered the "canon" version, though don't quote me on that.

Gesalt was mainly made for the West, because they thought playing an adult would appeal to Westerners more. The original Nier is the teenage one, they've most likely chosen to remaster Replicant because it's the game that fits their original vision best. From what I can tell, Nier's age and his relationship to Yonah are the only changes between the two versions.

The game's been out for a while. Anyone playing/played it?

I had only played Nier automata and never the original Nier, so this was a completely new experience for me. After seeing videos of the old game, it might have been for the best because this version made some major improvements.

This was a fantastic experience. I'll have my complaints first to them out of the way: the side-quests with the exception of the ones about the old lady from the lighthouse (so sad) and a couple others, fucking sucked. They're all fetching quests, which are made more tedious by the fact there are loading screens everywhere (second complaint). They had nothing to the lore and tell us almost nothing about the characters. At some point during the first half I got sick of them and stopped doing them and the game suddenly became a lot more enjoyable. The ones from the second half are a bit better, and more importantly actually given sizable rewards (money and weapons). I ended up completing 76% of them, but I could and probably should have done less. Waste of time, really.

And that's it. Everything else was really great. Artistic direction is amazing, music is fantastic, and graphics are pretty good for a remaster that is sort of but not really a remake. The story and characters were just as engaging as I was expecting. I'm kind of curious about the differences between this and Gestalt, because Nier's personality completely reflects his age and I can't imagine a father acting the same. I feel like the romance with Kainé and ending D must have felt pretty out of place in Gestalt too (Kainé is only 17).

Now to get into spoilers...

Game doesn't tell you something? That's how they make you buy the material books.

The game is specifically designed to make you feel like an asshole for playing it. You soulless monster you.

I'd say calling the player "soulless" is the exact opposite of what the game is trying to convey.

The point is that given each character's perspective (and lack thereof), what they did was justified given their knowledge and lack of knowledge. They can only care about the things they know.

I know, I'm not being serious about the "soulless" part. It's meant to be a joke.

But yeah there is some obvious guilt slinging by hindsight. It's for the player really, the characters did what they had to do.
