  1. I was really interested how the graphics will translate to Switch and I gotta say it's stunning! It's really good, might not be as good as it was on PS4 but still looks like Nier:Automata. And that framerate, wow! This is how you make a Switch game! (I'm looking at you, Deadly Premonition 2 – though I enjoyed that game too for what it was). Bought the game day1 back in 2017, played it, beat it, loved it, still love it and now I'm buying the Switch version too just to support Platinum Games!

    I think I noticed something that is different in this game and that's the skirt of 2B, it moves differently when she runs, I think it was a bit more stiff on the PS4 version but I might be wrong.

  2. If they can do this, I really wish they'd go back and re-optimize the PS4 and PC versions. I basically brute force the PC version to run well but it still bogs down over time. Meanwhile the PS4 Pro version still has big FPS drops in combat and more crowded areas. It shouldn't, but it does.

  3. It's funny that they keep mentioning how Nier is all about the story, but I found it turned me off because of it. It's just so all over the place to me and I stopped playing it because of that reason. 2B was just so dull and 9S bugged me.

    I don't know… I think I'm getting too old for these games ?
