Arato Endou and his faithful hIE, Lacia, have come together once again to show the world that artificial intelligence, no matter how brilliant, can be shut down safely.

As they descend into the holding facility to confront Higgins, Lacia's AI creator, the pair must fend off enemies from all fronts. Among them are Snowdrop, a rampant hIE hellbent on devouring Higgins, and Methode, a hIE who seeks vengeance against Lacia. The world's super-intelligent AIs unanimously decide to terminate Lacia, whom they deem a threat to humanity.

With limited time and the odds stacked against them, will Arato and Lacia be able to truly join together in a society where humans and hIEs can coexist peacefully?

Storming the Castle of a finale...

Beatless Final Stage is the conclusion to Beatless and the majority of which is where Lacia and Arato storms the castle or in this case, reaching and shutting down Higgins in order for humans and machines to co-exist. Of course for such a finale, will ALWAYS mean the bad guys gets in the way.

Beatless Final Stage at the very least gives us SOME development (what little) of the functions and the arbiters of the Lacia units and Higgins in the process and what their goals are, be it in order to help Lacia and Arato like the Kouka units or ...

(this review covers both "installments" of Beatless)

If I had to describe Beatless in few words, "Wasted potential" could be the most accurate term.

And whether is risky or not it would be an interesting future to witness. Movies like "I, Robot" and "Ex Machina" where interesting examples of diving into the point of view of an Artificial Intelligence. Beatless tries ...
