Nioh is an astonishing game with fast samurai action. Ninja tools, magic spells, and a variety of weapons should have made for fun player versus player battles. Unfortunately, sloppy connections and overpowered builds drag down the experience.
Nioh takes a lot of liberty with its historical setting but still maintains a large cast of famous warlords, samurai, explorers, and ninja. Every one of them has a story. Here’s a quick primer on what history tells us about these individuals.
On first glance, Nioh does not seem remarkable. A generic looking action RPG in the vein of Dark Souls, Nioh seems more like a lost Playstation 2 curiosity than a killer AAA exclusive. Ignoring it would be a terrible mistake though. Nioh is one of the best action titles in years, packed with exciting combat and…
Nioh has some difficult bosses. They’ll shish-kebab you in the blink of an eye. What if I told you one magic spell that turns them into total pushovers?
Nioh pits the player agains a variety of foes. Deadly yokai and horrifying beasts rage about the countryside eager for blood. The boss fights are often grand battles against monumental foes but the best are surprisingly subdued.
In DOAX3's recently released VR mode, it appears that if you stick your head underwater while looking at a character, here Marie Rose, her bathing suit vanishes.
Look, I didn’t expect to spend the last two nights obsessively playing Nioh either, but here we are.
After months of build up, the release day for Dead or Alive Xtreme 3's PlayStation VR content has finally come.
Pretty much what you’d expect, really.
Nioh is an upcoming Playstation 4 exclusive that blends aspects of Dark Souls, Onimusha, and even a little Genji: Days of the Blade to create a fast paced hack and slash game. The game is currently hosting an open beta. A perfect chance for some samurai action!
Announced this weekend during the 2016 Dead or Alive Festival in Japan, The King of Fighters’ Mai Shiranui will be joining the roster of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round for the PlayStation 4 in September. Nippon ichi!
Whether you liked Nioh or hated it, I must truly commend Team Ninja for their spectacular job on handling this demo. This is the kind of demo that I wish every game was able to sport before release. But first, let’s take a quick history lesson regarding this Nioh.
Of course it is.
Gamers have spent the past several months arguing over whether Dead or Alive’s third bikini-clad vacation simulator deserves a Western release. That’s a lot of time and energy wasted on the worst game in the series.
Spirit sharks and Shiba Inu puppies aside, Team Ninja’s Nioh continues to give off strong Dark Souls vibes, right down to the more polite “Ready To Die?” tagline in the trailer. We’ll see if that vibe holds when the week-long PlayStation 4 alpha demo kicks off later this month.
Ni-Oh! has been development for over a decade, but if this gameplay is any indication, it’s gonna be worth the wait.
With the release of the latest Dissidia Final Fantasy trailer, Kingdom Hearts director and zipper enthusiast*, Tetsuya Nomura sat down to talk about the newest addition to the character roster.
Surprise! The thing absolutely nobody was expecting happened: some Dead or Alive players on PC have modded the latest game so they can play with naked characters. NSFW content ahead.
Acknowledging that the Dead or Alive fighting franchise has a sexy image problem, community leaders at the series' go-to forum have added an over-sexualized costume soft-ban to their tournament rules. Reactions from the community-at-large have been overwhelmingly negative.
