Question for the PC gamers following this blog – did the PC port of NieR: Automata ever get fixed, or does it still suck? I’ve been thinking about picking it up on sale, but at Canadian prices, even 50% off is stil like forty bucks, which isn’t exactly impulse purchase territory.
I didn’t have any problems playing around release window, and I used the FAR mod ( https://github.com/Kaldaien/FAR ). I’d expect it fixes any problems you were hearing about, but I didn’t go hunting for bug reports.
I refuse on general principle to pay money for games that require fan-created mods to implement basic technical functionality and/or gameplay features, so I’m talking about the game-as-published.
I bought it around release date and played it mod-free – I think I got through two endings, and started the third. Didn’t notice any issues.
