Killed Big Balls in two tries. He wasn't so hard except the slight delay in throwing his balls into your face caught me off guard. I took it like man though.

I'm bloody loving this!

I'm impressed with the combat, the level design and bosses a lot. All three have been keeping me on my toes.

There isn't much variation in the standard enemies but they're still fun to fight.

I've just done boggly boogle water boogaloo bossy boss man. It was a groovy fight.

How 'Nioh' Tells Stories Through the Deaths of Other Players


Quote:
When you're surrounded by the failures of others, you can't help but pause and wonder.

There are dozens of little touches and design ideas that Nioh plucks from FromSoftware's Souls series, and in many cases, developer Team Ninja put their own spin on it. One of the most effective is bloody graves, the game's riff on bloodstains, which mark the spot another player died in. The Souls games are judicious about where those bloodstains show up—Nioh is not. Instead, the bloody graves become a blaring red siren that death is around the corner.


I quite like Nioh's take on Dark Souls blood splatters. It's not mentioned above but essentially if you see a grave rather than showing you the moment of death (like Dark Souls) you can call the spirit into your world and fight it (as a non-player character mind). These can be some of the most challenging fights outside of the bosses and you have a chance to bag you some of the loot the dead guy was holding at the moment of death.

£19.99 on PSN right now. It’s easily worth that and more.

The season pass is only £11.99 so I reckon I might like to dip back into the world for a smidgen.

It's also now scheduled to be released on PC.

Either that or I had a weirdly specific dream.

I’d love to play the DLC but apparently I’m dangerously underlevelled (level 110 whereas it’s a level 150 mission). The very first boss of the DLC can sodding one-shot me. God knows how I managed to finish the game at that level as the final missions are level 140+.

Time to grind... hnnngh.

It’s still rocking good fun though. The combat is awesome and darr I say better than Dark souls.

Grinded away to level 135 and now I reckon I can get that centipede bastard. He’s rock solid though.

Ooooooh, he’s done kicked my ass a fair few times. I might try calling in a visitor Dark souls style since I’ve never done that on here!

On the other hand the DLC introduces tonfa (my fave from Ninja Gaiden) and a giant sword called an Odama or something like that. It’s basically a washing pole with a handle.

Starts at 6:00 and he gets me down to my last estus. I’m incredibly fortunate he doesn’t manage to hit me with his phase 2 purple warrior that he’s swinging in my face. I’ve noticed that I get very cautious and I’m trying to bait him into one move where he throws his sword so I can nip in for a slash and back up. That was challenging and rewarding - like the bestest Souls bosses.
