Nice. I guess I don't have to worry about turning the game into a cakewalk by over-leveling from doing all side mission, finding all kodamas and doing twilight missions.

But that still wouldn't make it difficult, I'd have to know he difference from NG to NG+ and what not. I guess the challenge would be going in there under the recommended level and doing challenge runs.

I've finally figured out the one thing I really dislike about this game:

If William's ki is in the red, attacking or dodging will tucker him out and he'll wheeze heavily for a few minutes and die.

If a human enemy's ki is in the red, they can do whatever they like until you hit them to cause a ki break.

I don't care that yokai ki doesn't play by the same rules, but the fact that Ii Naomasa was doing all sorts of dodges and combos while his ki was red, and whenever I was red he would almost always instagib me with a grapple really gets me annoyed.


Fantastic game, that and the enemy variety aside. I just wish I could understand parry timing better.

Is the game worth it?

I recently picked up For Honor and it's satisfying, so far. But I worry that the network issues and the playerbase is gonna drop soon, causing the game to die out.

Nioh seems really fun, however. Dark Souls 3 has gotten boring for me, and been looking for a soulsborne type of game.

I got me this game. I've been enjoying it so far. I've never played any of Souls games, but I like me a difficult game. I saw that Team Ninja was on this project and I saw a few trailers, so I decided to pick it up.

I've just reached the second region. Bosses can be very difficult if you don't use your items/projectiles properly or have patience when attacking/defending, same for common enemies. Eventually, you'll learn attack patterns, though, so it gets "easier." Button response is good, difficulty is good, but I can't say much about the story since I've only gotten to the second region. I played a bit online. It seems you can summon other players to help you clear out an area in the story? I don't know since I haven't used that, but I did help someone clear the 2nd level which helped me out with gold and whatever.

Got a review copy of it ~ a week before the release.(I work as a reviewer on an Estonian site) Amazing game. World design is great, bosses are pretty variable apart from the shoguns. Music is kinda lacking, but the Okatsu theme https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-s0v0AWkbw (listen from around 34 second mark for the best part) is god tier. Very great game, difficulty curve is good for new players, dark souls veterans should feel home.

Apparently a fully-charged Iai Slash II can severely outdamage the Backstab on Unaware Enemies grapple. If you're running a katana there's no reason to use the backstab ever.

Also beat the Ogress today. If you time your ki pulses right you can keep staggering her for huge damage if she's out of stamina.

Best game i've played this year so far. Its really refined battle system imo...and besides the obvious souls/gaiden/onimusha references...it also reminds me of Tenchu series! mission based...the item selections...the levels are similar...if you use magic and ninja scrolls it all feels just like that series as well. If I didn't have work and school killing my time...I'd definitely be playing Nioh all day every day lol.

I'm glad I waited. I do definitely still plan to play it at some point and now it'll probably be on PC when I do.

Man, this makes me wish Nioh didn't have a terrible loot pinata system and was more like Dark Souls. Still, good news for PCbros, game's really good aside from a couple trash bosses, the inverted difficulty curve, and the aforementioned loot problem.

Beating people up with a bicycle chain is good fun, but Willy is a bit of a pain in the ass.
