Nier tips from Steve

Boring Side Quests
——————
I highly recommend if the side quests are getting you down that you skip most of them and stick to the main quest. The game’s easy enough that you don’t need to grind huge amounts of XP/gold in order to proceed through the main story (which is easily one of the best JRPG stories I’ve ever played through, in my opinion).

If you stick with the game there’s a LOT of weird little rewarding things (like exploring a mansion in a Resident Evil style homage or fighting your way out of a dream in the style of a Choose Your Own Adventure story).

Fishing – A warning
——————–
You’re going to hit a rather clunky fishing quest at some point as part of the main story. In the interest of saving your sanity, two tips : one – this is the ONLY compulsory fishing quest in the game. After this you never need to look at it again and two – it isn’t very clear but the beach next to the old man is NOT the place where you need to start fishing. Instead, look for the red cross on your map (it’s in a side cove en-route to the lighthouse). Hopefully that will save you an hour or so of frustration :)

The main character
——————
In the Japanese version, the character is actually younger and the girl is his sister. I actually think the decision to change it to a father/daughter dynamic works MUCH better or the story.

A second play through
———————
When you finish the game (which is actually quite short if you just plow through the main quest) you get to restart “GAME B” from about 2/3 of the way through (at the point where you need to recover all the parts of a key, in typical RPG style).

I HIGHLY recommend playing through the second time because it adds certain scenes and conversations that COMPLETELY twist the story on it’s head. For example, there are a couple of boss battles that are UTTERLY HEARTBREAKING to the point where I wasn’t even sure if I WANTED to win. It’s brilliant.

Sweary Underwear Girl
———————
Oh, and one final thing…it isn’t mentioned in the first play through of the game (and only really hinted at in the second) but the sweary girl in the underwear….well, there’s a reason she’s wearing a JOCK strap ;)

A day in the life of a female gamer?

Posted on 10 May 2010 by nicolespag

I found this article on GameCulture.com about how female gamers are treated when playing on-line games.  While I have had very little problems when talking on the voice chat in on-line games, I have heard horror stories from friends of mine.

I do have one funny story though I thought I would share on this subject.

My son, who was about 14 at the time, had just hooked up his new XBox 360 camera and was playing Uno online with some random people.  I went up to his room to play because he told me how cool it was.  As soon as I got on camera, the other 14-16 yr old boys started asking me to take my shirt off.  Not only did I sufficiently make them feel ashamed that they would ask girls to do this, but I also beat their butts in Uno!

Do you have any stories you want to share?
