[up][up]Problem is if you did, they'd probably just kill themselves anyway. That's why I wiped their memories instead of leaving them alone.

I wiped their memory, yeah. Living on means the possibility of rebuilding; killing Pascal there would just be adding another corpse to the factory floor. At least now they have a chance to become a leader of their people again, like they were before.

Also, now you see why I'm glad I did Emil's Memories in Route C. I don't know if there's new dialogue or anything because I didn't do it in the previous routes, but it feels right in Route C.

Are you playing with Japanese or English audio?

[up]The fact that he's taking apart the bodies of the children he loved to sell to you is horrible though. I guess that's part of why it's such a powerful choice, since you don't really know what would be the best for him in the end. If you spare him maybe someday he will remember what happened but have the strength to move on, or he will be unable to cope with the grief and just kill himself or wipe the memories again.

I was actually told you couldn't do Emil's Memories in route C, which is why I did it in route B. Can you do it as either 9S or A2, or just the former?

Also, I'm playing with the dub and this might actually be the best JRPG dub of all time. The first Nier's dub was great too, but so far I actually enjoy this one more. Nearly every single VA has had a moment to shine, and Kyle Mc Carley in particular is doing a lot to sell 9S going off the deep end.

It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine. ...not really though.

I'm... actually not sure. It might have been in Route B; it was at some point when you're able to play as 9S, solo. I distinctly remember feeling as though it was written to take place in C, though, since 9S is clearly devastated after losing 2B.

Once you reach the end of... well, the game, I recommend looking up the Japanese audio of the final scenes - the Japanese actor for 9S does an amazing job. Actually, pretty much everyone does in both languages, but.

There's actually a really cool follow up to Emil's Memories in another quest you get right as 9S's first segment in Route C opens up. You track down some resistance members that have gone missing for a friend of theirs, and in true Nier fashion they are all dead. The guy mentions the human ritual of putting flowers in people's graves, and then 9S goes to Kainé's shack to mourn 2B and stick her sword in the field of Lunar Tears. It was really strong, and made me glad I decided to do Emil's Memories first since the sidequest would have made no sense without it.

Oh! I had thought that one was Emil's Memories. I may have just missed Emil's Memories entirely and done the Kaine Salvation quest instead. Yeah, that was the moment I was talking about.

Finished the game.

Ending E really was something special huh. I guess you might even say it was, something very special.

Ok but no seriously, great game. Much like its predecessor, it has plenty of flaws, but the overall emotional experience of it and the high points are so strong that I can't help but be a little awed. It's one of the most creative and interesting games I've played in recent memory. I don't think it will take the place of the original Nie R in my heart, but that's ok. This is a game that's deeply worthwhile on its own merits.

Congratulations. Now you get to play through the game again, this time through 9S's perspective. Don't worry, things will be different enough that it won't feel like a painful retread.

Sounds interesting. :)

One of my friends laughed when I said that 9S is a hilarious dork. XD Albeit a hilarious dork who's very handy with a sword. cool

It's true! He's a computer dork (in several senses) who taught himself how to fight more or less on his own.

Fighting the opera singer boss is a bit more unsettling from 9S's perspective. It unexpectedly turned into The Shining. surprised

I like that cinematic with Adam and Eve, though. One of them wasn't too keen on following human customs. XD
