Obligatory reminder that the PC version of NieR: Automata has been abandoned by Platinum Games and Square Enix. The game is buggy, does not play well with AMD GPUs, and has not been patched to fix any of the issues at all. If you want to play it on PC, you will have to install the fan-made FAR patch to get it in working order, and even that may not be a guarantee that it'll work on your PC. If you must play this game, get the console version instead and save yourself a headache. Gamers should not have to rely on a third-party mod to get their game in working order (PSO2, I'm looking directly at you).

It doesn't matter if you're Team Green or Team Red, this is inexcusable. Even the GOTY Edition of this game from what I've read (and this deal does not appear to be the GOTY, BTW) received 0 patches on PC. What a bunch of crap. Vote with your wallet and don't buy this or any other Square/Platinum games if this is how they're going to treat their customers. This is an easy pass for me and I appreciate the heads-up.

yeah, just pirate the game and send $10 to Yoko Taro. Square Enix shouldn't get a penny

If you're a first-time customer at CDKeys, they will tell you AFTER you've paid that you have to provide your home phone or cell phone number for authentication. You can't use a Google number or any other VOIP service. They don't explain why, beyond "We take security measures to protect both us and our customers, and therefore phone verification is required from first-time customers." No other vendor I've bought from has done this. It's up to you whether you want to add your number to their list of confirmed phone contacts, which is worth its weight in gold to marketers and scammers.

The game received only 1 patch on PC. And that patch was to enable DLC support so they could take more of your money.

I bought this because i heard a lot of good things, but when I played it, I really was not enjoying the play style. There's a lot of interesting things going for it, but I wasn't enjoying how combat felt, and the navigation/exploration often seemed tedious. Maybe just not for me, or maybe i need to play more.

Recommend this game for anyone looking for a stop gap between your AAA titles (if you're mostly into those).

The character arcs and story are very nicely built. The gameplay mechanics are comparable to say a DMC 3/4, not 5. There's a lot of lore and some hardcore cult support for this game on reddit.

I like how you need to complete 5 playthroughs with different characters to reveal the full end-game. Things are easier if you play Normal (Hard is 4x enemy health and the difficulty curve didn't seem reasonable to me).

Happy to answer any questions on the game

What part of the game are you at? I think I started liking it after a couple of the harder bosses.

Finally bit on this. I installed FAR and started it up and as soon as I try to start a new game it crashes to desktop.

Edit: lol, it turns out that having an Oculus Rift S plugged in to your PC will cause this game to crash. This is truly a terrible port.

Thanks a ton for this info. Was going to get it, but didn't realize the port was so bad. With the plethora of games available it's an easy pass for me, I guess I'll just never play it.

Geat game! I didn't find the story as amazing as the Internet kept saying. Honestly it was kinda weird to me. But the gameplay, combat, and side missions were pretty dope. I avoided the PC version because of the same reasons in the first comment and got it on PS4.
