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.
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.
Nioh is a massive game. Reviewing it took around 60 hours. Speedrunner Distortion2 puts myself and everyone to shame with his world record run, which clocks in just over an hour and a half.
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 genuine heart.
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.
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.
