Update: Latest deal for NieR: Automata is listed below. The new 5% off EASTER coupon is only good until next Tuesday at April 18.
On Friday, March 17 NieR: Automata will no longer be a PS4 exclusive, and instead will release on PC. The well received Japanese Action RPG does run the standard $59.99 on Steam, but keys are cheaper at GMG where an
18% 20% discount cuts about eleven bucks off the MSRP.
- NieR: Automata Day One Edition (Steam) — $46.82 (list price $60)
- Use voucher code: EASTER during checkout.
Achieving the full discount on NieR: Automata merely requires you to have an account at GMG. Technically this is part of their VIP program, which is as complicated as creating an account with Green Man Gaming. Otherwise visiting GMG without an account will display a lesser discount of $54, which will be reduced further by creating an account.
Buying from GMG also gets you the exclusive “Day One Edition”. For this, you’ll need to pre-order or buy on its March 17 release date. Included in the Day One Edition is a Machine Mask Accessory, Grimoire Weiss Pod, Retro Grey Pod skin, Retro Red pod skin, Cardboard Pod Skin, and more. Nothing crucial, but a few extra character customization options.
With the PS4 version doing well in the review department, it’s a good bet NieR: Automat will turn out to be a fine title on PC. Last week’s PS4 launch has it rating an 88/100 score on Metacritic and an even higher 9/10 user score rating. It’s possible Square Enix could mess up the frame rates, or poorly port the game to PC, but if they do as well as they do for Final Fantasy titles on Steam this should go smooth.
Mafia II and Prey Are Now Backwards Compatible on Xbox One
Microsoft has recently added two more games to the list of backwards-compatible games for the Xbox One: the open world Mafia II, and the 2006 sci-fi shooter Prey.
Inhabiting the shoes of Native American Tommy, Prey allows players to leave their body in spirit form and explore an abandoned spaceship with a haunting atmosphere. While not too popular upon release, Prey eventually became somewhat of a cult classic, leading to the decision to reboot the franchise with a game of the same name in 2017, for which OnlySP’s Marley delivered high praise.
Mafia II takes place in the fictional city Empire Bay during the 1940s, where players take control of Vito Scaletta, a war veteran who uses his criminal connections to make a name for himself. The director of Mafia II, Daniel Vávra, most recently worked on the medieval role-playing game Kingdom Come: Deliverance at Warhorse Studios. Mitch added the game to his list of RPGs to watch out for in 2018, and OnlySP’s official review is coming soon.
