NieR: Automata – even more android butts
This week we talk a little more about NieR: Automata's android butts. We also discuss early Mass Effect: Andromeda reviews and of course, more praise for Breath of the Wild.
Notes for this Podcast
It’s just me and Liam again for this ep, whilst Dave visits the frozen north.
Although it’s been a quiet week for news, we have a good chat about our continued experiences with NieR: Automata _and somehow end up talking about android butts again. _The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Mass Effect: Andromeda’s awkward animations
We discuss some of the early review screens which have appeared from Mass Effect: Andromeda. There are some less than flattering facial animations…
Sadly however, this has led to a slew of online harassment of a particular employee (ex-employee?). BioWare responded to the harassment with this tweet.
Frog Fractions 101 - Noclip Documentary
I mentioned this video based on Liam’s comparison of Frog Fractions to some elements in NieR: Automata. It’s a great documentary, but does contain some spoilers for the_ Frog Fractions_ phenomenon.
NieR: Automata development screens
I mention the NieR: Automata developer blog in this episode. Some of the screens featured within give away a great deal of information about the production of this game, and the concept art in particular is very pretty.
You can read more on the Platinum Games developer blog.
VHS promotional videos
Liam’s latest addition to his game collection, is old promotional tapes. The majority of examples he lists can be found quite easily by searching online.
Below is the Squaresoft promo, signalling their their move away from Nintendo hardware to the Sony PlayStation.
