Is 2B's voice actress behind Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker's Miyako Hotsuin? I swear it's her.

Apparently. Along with DOA's Honoka and Lola from Huniepop. She seems to have been as prolific as any other anime voice actor, but for whatever reason 2B was one of the first roles that had people take notice.

Sounds like you didn't beat route A if you didn't instantly start with him. It's literally how it starts, iirc.

Go straight to the flight unit, do not follow any other path.

I just got ending d by chooosing to be 9s for the fight and choosing to go to the moon.. Iím guessing I get ending c by either choosing to be a2 and or choosing not to stay on earth correct?

And then I guess I need to go see this resistance fighter for the other ending?. Whatís the quickest way to see the final true endings?

Pretty sure you just have to select the last fight again and pick the option you didn't pick the first time.

Stunning. There's nothing I can say about it that others haven't already said.
A game has never given me an existential crisis quite like this. I'm feeling all the emotions right now - happiness in "beating the game" but also a bit of sadness and emptiness. Perhaps that's the game forcing me to reflect on my own decisions in our own real "cycle" and realizing there's something missing? Who knows. Regardless, this is an experience that'll stick with me for a long time.

I haven't played in Automata in the while so forgive the potential misunderstanding of the game's themes.

Would y'all argue that one of the morals/themes of Automata is optimistic nihilism?

Here's a link to a good explanation of optimistic nihilism: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBRqu0YOH14

To quote Wikipedia, "Existential nihilism is the philosophical theory that life has no intrinsic meaning or value."

I feel like a lot of Automata went over me, and while ruminating today, I remembered that Pascal was reading from Nietzsche, and many of the stories told in Automata seemed to revolve around finding purpose or meaning in life (e.g. the robots praying to God in the factory, robots protecting the baby robot in the castle, or Adam and Eve's dilemma).

However, optimistic nihilism is not completely negative. From what I remembered from reading Nietzsche in philosophy courses in uni, he preached for "positive affirmation" or creating your own purpose in living, despite not having no intrinsic value in existing given from God, morals, or otherwise. I think of Eve in this way, going against the moral or belief that there is a gender, and takes the name Eve, even if though the name is feminine, as he knows that a lot of standards in life is very arbitrary.

And I think that the robot companions during the credits of Ending E were doing just that, denying their arbitrary creators (aka the staff of Square Enix), and creating their own meaning and reviving life for the androids/machines despite knowing that was not what they were meant to do.

In a way, I'm happy that Taro didn't go for the depressing ending that he tends to end his games with. I find the idea of finding meaning, even in disaster or lack of purpose, very powerful, and honestly, I rely on this belief a lot to keep moving on during the Trump Era.

Does anyone agree or have their own take? Also, I haven't taken philosophy in about a year, so please correct me if I'm misreading some stuff lol

Very well said; I caught myself thinking about that Kurzgesagt analysis as well. "Optimistic Nihilism" is really the overarching theme I got from my playthrough(s).

That's exactly what I did and then after the credits an option came up to delete your save data in exchange for the option to help other players I selected No and it was back to the beginning. Which is complete bullshit considering how long and banal that section is.

But I do understand how answering Yes makes sense. It's just who would wanna do that shit again?

I'm not sure what's the issue here. It wasn't the "wrong" decision. You can choose yes or no, and that's it either way.

...But you beat the game. It's done either way.

The only thing you "missed" at the end was watching your save get deleted.

I was watching some speedruns of the game, and someone showed me a mid-end Route C skip that was ridiculous.

You only get the Forest Key, then you open the subunit, save/load the game, and it resets the key's usage but keeps the subunit open, so you can open the next subunit without doing the next Box. Repeat, then open the Tower and it skips the enemy spawns/D&P's assistance scene so you can just go inside immediately after hacking.
