If I wrote a list of my favorite games of 2017, Nioh would not be on it, because I didn’t start playing Nioh until just two days ago. I just bought it for myself for Christmas, 10 months after its release. And I’ve made a video about what I think of it.
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.
Nioh, a beloved samurai action game that came out earlier this year for PS4, is coming to PC this November complete with all the downloadable content that publisher Koei Tecmo has released so far.
The newest patch for excellent, difficult Japanese samurai action game Nioh adds a lot, including new moves and the option to increase your item shortcuts from eight to 16. (Wonderful news for us Onmyo specialists.) Plus, there’s now a way to track which hot springs you’ve bathed in. Handy! Patch notes here.
Nioh’s final DLC Bloodshed’s End releases on September 26th. Among the additions will be a perpetual battle mode called ‘The Abyss,” which I guess means the bloodshed isn’t really ending at all.
The excellent PS4 samurai action game Nioh is overloaded with loot, but its developers may have solved one of their game’s few problems with a clever tweak in the game’s new 1.14 patch.
For the last month, I’ve been livestreaming my playthrough of The Surge on Kotaku’s Twitch channel, defeating one boss a week. Last night, I completed the game. While it was exciting at first, I can now officially confirm that The Surge is not very good.
The Surge is a futuristic action game in the vein of Dark Souls that pits players against a host of robots and power-suit-wearing goons. It’s fun to bash on zombies but even better to cut their limbs off to steal their loot.
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.

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?
The PS4's new action game Nioh gets a whole lot right, but a change to co-op between the most recent demo and the full game has some fans rankled. In a statement to Kotaku, the game’s creative director says the change was made to keep the game from being too easy.
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.
The PS4 samurai action game Nioh is out today. It is really good. It’s also really difficult. If you want to play it but don’t want to spend hours figuring out how everything works, I’ve got you covered.
Samurai Dark Souls is finally here. And not much else.
Look, I didn’t expect to spend the last two nights obsessively playing Nioh either, but here we are.
