I've been ignoring this subject, but this is both hot and funny. It seems Maxim Korea decided to join in on the mockery being directed at IGN France for their remarks about Eve's character design.



At first I thought the "issue" wasn't worth mentioning, but given the IGN France editor wouldn't let it go after IGN issued an apology to Shift Up, I found the aforementioned video amusing.

I played through the demo, and it's...fine? Didn't hate it. Wasn't champing at the bit to buy it at full price. It's funny coming straight out of Jedi Survivor, since both games share at least some of the same DNA, especially the emphasis on parrying. I was hoping it would be more Bayonetta-esque, but my expectations were properly set by other players beforehand. The music and setting reminded me enough of NieR: Automata to draw me in a bit, even if the story and characters themselves didn't so much. The length of the game seeming to not be terribly long is also appealing. I don't think it'll be a day one purchase, but I can certainly see myself picking this up down the road, especially if reviews are strong.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat as you, Adam. The demo definitely did not live up to the hype, but it's not bad. Although, unlike yourself, this is coming from someone who instantly disliked Jedi: Fallen Order (and thus left his copy of Jedi: Survivor untouched), and knows next to nothing about NieR: Automata (as such, any similarities flew right over my head). However, if reviews are strong, I'll probably get it when it goes on sale.

It could just be marketing fluff, but if this video is to be believed, the game's narrative is far more ambitious than the demo would suggest.

Wow. Didn’t know the production of a game would be so deep.

Here's a cool little glitch in the demo.

Aargh! Got the glitch to work. Got myself killed and now having a hard time getting the glitch to work again. ​​

Okay, got the glitch to work again and found another save spot beyond the demo area. Lots more to explore out here and a whole bunch of new enemy types.

Well, whatever you do, don't solve the monorail power station puzzle. The demo auto saves there, and you can't go any further. Oh, well,at least this glitch gave me a far better taste of the game and now I definitely want to play the full game.

I only played about 20 minutes of the demo but wasn’t really feeling the controls.
I’ll give it another chance. I did really like the music, though.

I was going to wait for it to drop to $40. However, the insane number of pre-orders make me worried the physical copies will be scarce and then scalpers will drive up the price (like was done with Final Fantasy VII Remake INTERGRADE). Therefore, I (reluctantly) pre-ordered the game today.

The controls get way better once you start upgrading Eve. Her move set and timing windows are vastly improved once you level her up and apply your Skill Points where it best suits you. Also, there are upgrades that improve her combos and damage she inflicts. But you only really see how good the game can be if you take advantage of the glitch to access the closed off sections. The demo as it's meant to be played doesn't leave much of an impression.

I'm in the minority regarding the music. I found it bland and repetitive.

Good to hear that the timing window improves, that was my main issue with the demo, I just couldn't time the parries to save my life.

if I can survive the demo and subsequent bonus boss levels and learn how to parry, I think ANY others can survive as well.

Good to know. My parrying skills have improved with Rise of the Ronin, so I may have to pick this one up as well.

I really want to get this just to show my support as an FU to all the SJW's complaining about the character model.

my tutelage came from Ghost of Tsushima. With all the different stances and ways to go about killing Mongols; parrying, blocking and rolling are essential and great warm up for this one. I do want to try this glitch thing everyone is talking about...

You're assuming his celibacy is involuntary. And we're both assuming he's celibate. And you know what happens when you assume...

Honestly, the whole discourse over the character model's looks has idiots on both sides. You got idiots like that guy from IGN France talking through his ass, making assumptions about the dev and the character that others were quick to debunk. You also got idiots that have been declaring this GOTY because the main character gives them a boner (which would be a valid point if this were some porno game). Thank goodness for the demo so people who actually care about the gameplay can try out the game and see if it's for them.

Sony released a music video to promote the game.



I look forward to never hear it again.

Enjoy, everyone else!
