Nier and thoughts on fishing

Posted by arkadysmile (145 posts) -

Man, I picked up "Nier" yesterday and I have to say that this one came out of left field. I was just looking for something to kill my weekend with and what I am currently playing is the first game in awhile that I haven't wanted to turn off and check something else out. The graphics are some what last gen, not completly, but they are not up to the standerds that one expects in todays games. But the combat is awesome and so far I am interested in the story. The only thing is that why do games think that I want to play a god damn fishing game. Gonna sign off and play some more...

Can we have an "Ask Me Anything: Nier" thing up in this piece? I know almost nothing about that game.
 
Except that lady has a dong.

I'm interested in this game. Before I decide whether I'd like to purchase it, I'd like to read more critical feedback. It seems like one of those obscure games that will take a while before anyone bothers to review it.

Check out Justin McElroy's thoughts on fishing, and why it made him bail out of reviewing Nier.

Can it really be this bad? I want someone to tell me that he was screwing up, and that it's actually much easier. No one would actually put this minigame into a product that people are supposed to play and enjoy, would they?

People in the comments to that story are claiming he might be doing it in the wrong spot and that its way easier to do if you fish where theres a Giant X on the map or something.

@louiedog: If your fishing in the right spot or the red x on the map you will catch the fish needed to keep the story going. I think I got the fish on the second try so it took me 2 minutes tops. Not something to get hung up on unless you don't pay attention to the red x you follow on your map all game long.

@Lautaro:  Im having the same problem, i dont have a red x on the map, Ive tried at least 50 times and all ive caught is an empty can and a fucking plant, sorry but those things dont bite fishing rods, i rarely get angry at games but i feel exactly the same way as this dude, this shitty minigame has ruined a game i was otherwise enjoying, might go try another 50 times or might go and trade it in :@
