Paid dlc has an apple(lowers your lvl by 10 each use, u get 10) locked behind its obscene final special coast arena, u fight a boss rush against reskinned mobs n bosses that r only things in game that r lvl130-40(your lvlcap is 99) who can insta kill u even on easy, n have stupid amounts of life to kill, so u have to use best chips n weapons to even deal damage(critical chips) turning it into a dps race.
when I found out about this I just dropped the game since I wanted to replay with my side quests intact, I replayed a bit until I realised how much grinding I would have to do for a single arena challenge to even beat it, more so is how I avoided all the quests so they where not missing post game since they can't be redone for some reason.
If u avoid all quests u won't be adequate lvl for main game, its short too, so u can run from the desert to Forrest to coast n be way under lvl by the Forrest parts, mobs don't even budge or take much damage at all if u only a few lvls below them
Also mob types r based on routes(A,B,C/D) not difficulty, so even if u replay it's got less mob types the earlier u start.
Let's just acknowledge that replay value is a core tenant of platinums philosophy, so they betrayed that with automata, think about that.jesus.
I'm well over automata. I deleted it from my PS4 n am going to sell it when I can, I got so pissed n sad I needed something to play that was legit good action game, so I fell in love with god hand again n binged mikekobs god hand lp, then I found this site n the rest is history :).
First half of vid discusses issues as a game, rest is gushing about mah story, vash is cool dood otherwise I'm glad he sees it's faults, a must avoid game for action fans.
