Finally started playing Nier: Automata, after I bought it halfway through last year.*
You can tell a game is gonna be a surreal experience when, in the course of regular quest progression, you "walk in" (drop in, actually), on two robots fucking. And by robots I don't mean androids, but cylinders with circles for heads and stumpy l'il legs.
Yep. Told me exactly what kinda game I'm playing. Also, given the first hour or so, I suspect it's gonna be as cheerful as Everybody's Gone to the Rapture.
And yet, knowing this, I still find myself resenting the time I'm spending not playing it.
At least I finally finished the Tips for Camp Nano post, which relied heavily on someone who'd done it much more often than me with greater success, and luckily extended from four points (i.e. pointlessness) to six, which I can just about get away with. And I learned something too. Mostly that it's impossible to take screenshots of something that isn't running yet.
Well I learned some new stuff doing it, so maybe it'll help someone else. Who knows?
Ugh, I keep very almost building up into a rant that's been bugging me for days but energy? What's that?
* My mother promptly complained "you haven't played any of the games I bought you!" She's referring to Deadpool, which she bought me for xmas on a whim, and Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, which she bought me in 2015 and, moreover she's seen me play. She insists this is somehow untrue, despite the fact I'm a over third of the way through it.
She has yet to offer a way I can play these when she's always on the sole Xbox One, but hey, she's just also called me a liar because Martin Shaw played Adam Dalgliesh and she didn't know this despite currently watching something on TV, in front of her, right now, where Martin Shaw is playing Adam Dalgliesh, so... I'm clearly just a fucking liar, aren't I?
This is why I don't know why I bother staying alive.
