Despite offering a unique take on 3D fighting focused on counters and holds, the Dead or Alive franchise has never quite taken off within the fighting game community. It has a small but dedicated fanbase, but the game also struggles with public perception as the genre’s “boobie fighter” (probably thanks to old but…
2017 action-RPG and Geralt of Rivia lookalike platform Nioh (which was rather good) has a sequel, just announced during Sony’s E3 press conference.
Dead or Alive is back! The latest entry in Team Ninja’s fighting game series Dead or Alive 6 is slated for release early next year on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
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.
Playing Fire Emblem Warriors feels a bit like herding a pack of ravenous lions. Countless enemies clash against heroes in glorious combat that mixes strategy and absurdity. It’s occasionally overwhelming but if you can tame the mayhem, the result is beautiful.
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.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is a fast-paced three-on-three arcade combat game featuring characters from Square Enix’s beloved role-playing franchise, coming to the PlayStation 4 early next year. It’s currently in closed beta, where players are enjoying some spectacular lag.
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?
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!
Of course it is.
