  1. I've done those. For Nobunaga and Nouhime, try to take out Nobunaga first, pretty much the fight becomes one of patience since trying to get them seperate isn't easy and you have little windows of opportunity to hit him. I recommend to have the slow magic since you can use that on Nouhime to get more chances early on to hit Nobunaga. With Tadakatsu and Muneshige, again you need to separate them, this fight though is easier since you can use the rock to do that and Tadakatsu usually will take his time getting to you leaving more opportunities to take on Muneshige. The big thing to worry about with Tadakatsu is that he will from time to time use his charge attack which does a lot of damage and knocks you down. Again I recommend Slow but use how you see fit as well as poison pellets if you have them.
  2. http://www.ign.com/articles/2017/02/20/nioh-getting-high-difficulty-missions-in-march-pvp-in-april More difficult missions, and PvP coming for free as well as info on when the first DLC, Dragon of Tohoku, shall be coming out which is in April. Japan’s Best Warrior and Peaceful and Tranquil will be the second and third DLC names.
  3. Well the game being out not for a few weeks the thread now shall have SPOILERS so if you want to refrain from seeing said SPOILERS, I recommend passing most of my posts here on out. So while the games story isn't the strongest I find it so interesting for some reason. I think it's the ending and partially how while the game talks about balance we aren't entirely fighting for the side of good. I mean Ieyasu, the side we as William fights for had his wife kill his son and herself because he didn't trust them, we even see her as she curses her husband in death and became the Ogress boss. So it feels more like we fight for the lesser of two evils since Misunari is willing to summon yokai to aid him along with dark magic. Yet both strive for peace oddly enough through the conflict of war by uniting Japan. Then the ending. Oh how I love the twist that in reality all the deaths we faced can technically be true deaths like the Soulsborne series because William is connected to Saoirse and as long as she lives and he believes in her, he cannot truly die. Along with the fact my hunch of Kelly was right in that the Edward Kelly we chase after and fight is not the true Edward Kelly but a homunculus (minus the small part), who works for John Dee. Both Edward Kelly and John Dee in real life were alchemists who worked for Queen Elizabeth and Kelly supposedly could communicate with spirits this would explain why he has a guardian spirit himself and able to see Saoirse. So it would make sense that somehow they worked together in this games story and eventually found a way to create a homunculus (though perhaps at the expense of the real Kelly's life). We also no that Edward Kelly isn't real since there are multiple clones that you fight when you got to confront John Dee. It's just fascinating how they have managed to take real history and turn it into a tale that while seemingly stays true to historical accounts in some ways is also its own story.
  4. So we should be getting the release date some time today if this article is anything to go by: http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2017/02/15/activision-teases-crash-bandicoot-announcement.aspx EDIT: Crash is coming June 30th: http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2017/02/16/crash-bandicoot-n-sane-trilogy-has-a-june-release-date.aspx
  5. Completed: Nioh Platform: PS4 If you have a PS4 and like the Souls series, the Ninja Gaiden Series, or Onimusha series then get this. Heck even if not a fan or don't know those games give this a shot. The game's combat is fluid with a variety of weapons to use in several stances to go against your foes. The boss fights are well designed and entertaining providing a challenge while being fair (though I felt the last boss might of been pushing that line slightly. Still a fun fight though). The story is a mixture of Japanese folklore and magic, with elements of real life history and characters with a few fictitious ones and some creative liberties with the real characters. You play as William Adams the first western samurai who is chasing after Edward Kelly an alchemist bent on resurrecting an old warlord and bringing chaos to Japan after taking a unique spirit from William. On his quest, William gets tied up between two warring clans in Japan trying to take control to bring piece and balance across Japan. Again highly recommend it.
  6. Yeah the Battle of Osaka definitely probably the first DLC. Meant to change that in my spoiler post. At the time I had heard slightly about the final cutscene but after seeing it, the armor of the guy in there is the same armor shown in the little piece of parchment in the case talking about the season pass so definitely DLC. Right now I'm kind of just working on trying to collect all the rare materials now while completing missions (in the normal game I have to still do the final two missions that involve fighting two bosses at once. The Oda Nobunaga and his wife fight, and the warriors of the east and west fight). Got close with the warriors one but the big guy with the spear still hits like a tank and took me out. For the rare material I need the Nue Claw (lighting lion thing or whatever) and the water blobs eye, at least going by the material in the forge menu suggests that's all I need. Also doing some of the harder missions. To me the ending was definitely the most fascinating thing in the game with several things it revealed, like how Kelly technically cannot die as long as Saoirse exists which shows some of that Souls inspiration in the story. That and then Kelly, before the final fight, in the lab room with the containers there are clones of Kelly, this to me suggests that even the Kelly we fought was merely a clone which would make sense since Kelly technically died in 1597. While yes another character we see in the game that died before the true timeline is the assassin of Oda Nobunaga, is Akechi Mitsuhide. Its what Kelly says at the end before Williams finally ends his life though that leads me to believe that we are facing a clone of Kelly that the other clones we fight before John Dee say as well and thats -"I am the hollow man... I am the hollow man... Many times I've died... Many times rose again." To me this suggests that this isn't the first time Kelly has died, but since unlike William he doesn't have a true spirit (I assume his snake isn't like the other spirits and is born from alchemy, since John Dee and Edward Kelley both dealt with alchemy primarily in their lives), his deaths would be true deaths, but we know there are clones of Kelly so perhaps Kelly found the means, along with John Dee's help to clone himself with the help of Armita but ultimately required the true Kelly to die as well. At least that is what I think at the moment. EDIT: So I was right about the Kelly thing being not the real Kelly, he's a homunculus. You can learn this by reading the bio of the character in game when in the map menu. Though clone or copy probably would fit better for term since homunculus refers to "small man", then again it ties in to alchemy which John Dee and the true Edward Kelly were heavily into.
  7. So I've completed Nioh's main storyline pretty much minus seemingly an epilogue mission. All I can say though to that final mission is DAMN. Originally I did not mean to have someone summoned to complete it but once reaching the end I'm somewhat glad I did have another person to aid in the fight because it's a doozy of a fight, in a good way.
  8. Fought that boss in the flaming castle and one thing I have learned so far, any flying boss in this game is a pain in my ass. XD Though I did managed to beat him on my own. I will hint at that later in a submission you will have to fight that succubus flying boss again. Still the only boss along with the centipede boss that I haven't beaten on my own. The centipede one I was just messing with the summon stuff so I had someone with me for that fight though I think I could of gotten it done on my own after some practice. The ogress I thought was relatively easy, still harder then the last chance demo but not much harder since most of her attacks can be easily dodged by hugging up close to her. Only move I had issue dodging was her leaping attack from across the map and landing on you. True enemy variety is lacking but then again still haven't gotten the one trophy that states you need to fight all the types of yokai in the game so must be still some surprises they have in store. Also this game deals with more human elements then the mystical stuff where upon Dark Souls has a plethora of fantasy stuff it could pick and choose from along with Bloodborne having the whole Lovecraft thing it can work with. Nioh while having the Japanese mystical/supernatural stuff also has a certain style it keeps with the yokai we fight which whittle down their designs along with the more complex designs seemingly being saved for the bosses which leaves them little in the realm of enemy choices. Stuff fun as hell though have to say that.
  9. I think we might be in the same spot. Just beat Nouhime last night and now working on some of the sub missions before continuing the main path. Enemies I don't think I have had to much trouble with except for the skeleton warriors, always seem to forget they can't be staggered easily like the human enemies. As for the Nouhime fight yeah it was cool though I kind of was disappointed since after a certain amount of health you can get her to easily spam her grab attack which as long as you are just out of reach is easily avoidable. This allows one or two easy hits before retreating. Still a cool fight just wish that move wasn't easily exploitable. Also screw Spider Hell land. The boss was cool, liked that move where she pretty much looks like she break dances (XD) but spiders.... ick, why does there always have to be spiders?
  10. So thought I would talk about it but co-op works differently then what you would expect. To explain you cannot co-op the game with a buddy at least from the start. If you wish to co-op with a friend one of one must of completed the mission before being able to connect to each other via passwords. While the game has of course been getting some good scores, this has been one criticism the fans have been making about it. The developer has recently made a statement about this change to co-op due to the fact that it made the game 'too easy': http://www.ign.com/articles/2017/02/09/nioh-co-op-changed-in-final-game-because-it-was-too-easy
  11. The first mission is the fishing village with the demon boss on the boat. Second stage is the vampire succubus and the third stage is that stormy village. Only stage from the given alpha/beta/demos that I haven't seen is the recent one with the Ogress. Also while I can't compare to Ninja Gaiden, the game overall doesn't feel Souls in combat, if anything due to speed I would place it with the likes of Bloodborne, ultimately though I find the game is more of a mixture of that along with not entirely being them. The game relies as much as blocking as it does dodging and while Souls and Bloodborne let you drag enemies one at a time there are moments here where that won't be an option. SO ultimately yes it has Soulsborne elements but also feels to be its own thing without directly copying it, especially with how it places emphasis with stances and added button combos.
  12. I think I've fought four bosses so far (two in the same mission if that helps place where I'm at for anyone without giving off spoilers). The first few areas are going to be rather familiar if you were in the alpha, or beta. If you were in all the way since the alpha then the first three areas are familiar if not then the first two. Still fun as heck. Personally I'm enjoying the story, sure there are the odd moments like that one scene with the cat but I like the mix of weird anime, spiritual stuff, and the historical stuff. Heck I just learned the main antagonist is based off a real guy to a degree. I think the toughest boss so far for me was the second boss, which again if in either beta should be familiar. Though I had trouble with that boss as well in the beta so guess it will just be something to contend with in the future.
  13. Some gameplay footage has been shown for the new DLC. So a bit of spoilers if you don't want to see anything before its release: Fear not the dark, ashen one. Journey to the world’s end to search for the Ringed City and encounter new lands, new bosses, new enemies with new armor, magic and items. Experience the epic final chapter of a dark world that could only be created by the mind of Hidetaka Miyazaki. This new adventure has players chasing after the Slave Knight Gael to the literal end of the world as he searches for the Dark Soul of Humanity. At the close of the Age of Fire, as the world ends and all lands converge upon themselves, a lone adventurer descends into the madness of the earth and uncovers the secrets of the past. As players make their way to the fabled Ringed City they will encounter ancient beasts, a new cast of characters teetering on the edge of insanity, new armor, weapons, magic, and at the bottom of it all, a long lost city filled with new horrors for players to overcome. EDIT: Some people were flown over to Fromsoft to allow an early test of the upcoming content. Some of what VaatiVidya thought of it. Obvious warning of spoilers. All I will say is DAMN that first boss fight is going to be a tough one. Also will slightly spoil that this DLC does pay homeage to Dark Souls 2 with one location even called Earthen Peak that has the old windmills similar to the windmill we set ablaze in Dark Souls 2 with the return of the pyromancy sorceress set returning.
  14. After being in an extensively long alpha/beta last year Drawn to Death finally has a full release date announced. It is coming out April 4th.
