I recently finished Persona 5, and bought Nier straight after. Nier isn't the kind of game I'd normally play, but I figured that if I wanna enjoy games more, I need to broaden my horizons and go a little out of my comfort zone.
So, I picked it up, and for the most part, I'm enjoying it. But there's a few little niggles that are making me a bit skeptical.
Is there an easier way to heal than opening the menu every time? In the prologue, you get healed automatically as long as you have the items, which I thought was a nice touch. But now I'm up to the "open world" section. To heal, I have to pause it, open a menu, go to healing items, go to the one I want, use it, then back to the game. Is there a hotkey I'm not using, or is it like that everytime.
In addition to this, the map itself is absolutely useless. I just did the refugee camp. I did the 2 sidequests in there, and then the woman said "Go to the desert" for some light recon. I looked at the map, and there's a big icon where I'm supposed to go. Except I have no idea how to get there whatsoever. Literally none. I turned it off last night because I had no idea what I was doing. I suppose I'll just "Explore" when I get back on in an hour or so, but I guess I wish it was a bit more intuitive as to what I'm supposed to do. I've attached a picture of the map to show what I mean
If I'm missing something dead obvious, I'd love to hear from you guys. It's had AMAZING reviews everywhere, so I know there's something to it!
