Finished Nier: Automata. The end-game narrative dips into a convoluted, esoteric jumble (not quite as bad as, say, Metal Gear Solid 2, but close). That said, now that I have seen the whole story, many of the inconsistencies of the main characters wind up making sense in the end (why does 2B, who is supposed to be an emotionless android soldier, abruptly get so upset at points over the fate of 9S? When you find out why, it makes the game a LOT more interesting), and I appreciate how the story did that. I've actually gotten all of the achievements but I still want to play through it one more time and experience the story.

The visuals look like a PS3 game but they're still gorgeous, if a bit samey. The music is fantastic; one of the best game soundtracks I've heard in recent memory.

And you get to fight zombie robot clowns.

And ride a moose.

An 8 out of 10.
