Nier: Automata still needs a patch on PC, 8 months later

Nier: Automata still needs a patch on PC, 8 months later

I finished my first run through Nier: Automata this weekend, and it's one of the best games I've played this year. I love the physicality of it, the way character 2B pauses for a heartbeat and then lurches forward when I press the dash button. It's a perfect videogame movement. I love that the combat looks and feels satisfying, a whirlwind of intricately animated combos, swords appearing and disappearing like magic. It's more light show than fighting game, unlike Platinum's Bayonetta, but that doesn't matter. It looks amazing. I just wish that Nier: Automata on the PC wasn't still in need of a patch, eight months later.When Andy reviewed Nier: Automata back in March, he wrote "cutscenes are locked to 30fps, which make them look distractingly jerky. The mouse cursor kept appearing in the centre of my screen. And on one test machine running an AMD card, the game crashed to a white screen every ten minutes for seemingly no reason.

Storyline

"The distant future… Invaders from another world attack without warning, unleashing a new type of threat: weapons known as “machine lifeforms.” In the face of this insurmountable threat, mankind is driven from Earth and takes refuge on the Moon. The Council of Humanity organizes a resistance of android soldiers in an effort to take back their planet. To break the deadlock, the Resistance deploys a new unit of android infantry: YoRHa . In the forsaken wasteland below, the war between the machines and the androids rages on. A war that is soon to unveil the long-forgotten truth of this world..." Nier: Automata shares the post-apocalyptic setting of the original Nier, taking place after the game's fourth ending. Characters such as Emil and minor characters from Nier will appear, while other characters from both Nier and Drakengard 3 are mentioned. Aside from this, the two games share no direct story connections. It will also retain the dark atmosphere and branching story paths common to the Drakengard series as a whole.
