Look for Nioh's free PvP update and first DLC in April

You know that feeling when you get a new game and you become deeply, terribly invested in it as if it's some sort of curse you have to take with you to the grave? A week in, you pause for a rare moment of reflection. You wonder how you coul...   read

Here's a way to farm gold in Nioh that's fast, easy, and lucrative

If there's one thing I could use more of in Nioh, it's gold. Gold is where it's at. It's true that you can play normally and boost your gold-grabbing efforts with stat-boosting equipment, your choice in guardian, or the achievement-esque t...   read

I've been sleep deprived this past week and I don't see that changing. The cause? Nioh. I can't get enough Nioh. It's Team Ninja's Souls- and Diablo-inspired samurai action game, and it is fantastic. Chris got us rolling with some quick ti...   read

Review: Nioh

The PS4 is really kicking off 2017 with some damn good exclusives. If you count the VR version of Resident Evil 7 (which you should, as it's fantastic), it also has Gravity Rush 2, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, Yakuza 0...   read

Nioh has gone gold, more info coming this week

Nioh, my most anticipated game of 2017 currently ("currently," because who knows, maybe From Software will announce another Souls game or we'll get a Devil May Cry 5 at E3!), has gone gold. That means that it's done and dusted, an...   read

Nioh's director: 'This is meant to be a masocore game, we consciously avoided making it easy'

I remember walking by the Nioh video reel at TGS in 2015 and thinking "why isn't this playable?" It was one of the most attractive games at the show, but at the time it had just been introduced by Team Ninja, and we knew very little about i...   read

These Nioh screens are magnificent

Man, Disney World used to have a badass mythology museum in the Japan area of Epcot, which showcased a bunch of creatures like Tengu, Kappa, and Kitsune. Now it's a "Kawaii Museum," which is still neat, but the former was just so wonderfull...   read

Nioh kunoichi disregards reality but who cares

I remember forgetting the word for female ninja, "kunoichi," when talking with a Japanese friend once. No matter how much I explained the concept and how much of a basic word it was, she couldn't think of it. When I finally remembered she ...   read

Has Nioh redeemed Team Ninja for you?

Back when Itagaki was at the helm, Team Ninja was riding high. Say what you will about Dead or Alive but it made an impact on the 3D fighter market in the '90s, and Ninja Gaiden's pristine reboot? Say no more. But after he left, they starte...   read

Nioh has a fairly typical digital deluxe edition

I had been wondering what all Team Ninja and Sony would be doing for Nioh's release beyond the basic standard edition. As covered on the PlayStation Blog, there will be a digital deluxe edition, one that comes with a copy of the samurai act...   read

Koei Tecmo's response to DOAX3 criticism? Rip their clothes off in free DLC

If you were hoping for Right to Censor to show up and put Team Ninja in a headlock, I'm sorry to say Team Ninja executed a perfect reversal-into-Stinkface. Free DLC swimsuits that you can download right now are a collaboration wit...   read

Team Ninja has more changes in store for Nioh after the beta

Nioh would've been such a fitting end-of-the-year game for me. Based on everything we know about Team Ninja's brutal action-RPG and what we've played first-hand, I think it's going to be not only a time sink, but one that requires our darn-...   read

Nioh sure has some ugly demons

Good news: Team Ninja's Nioh will have another playable demo on PlayStation 4. Bad news: this so-called "beta demo" won't appear until August 23, and like the alpha build before it, we'll only be able to test it out for a limited time. Come...   read

Team Ninja's Nioh returns with a beta demo on August 23

Team Ninja's action-RPG Nioh messed me up in all the right ways, and ever since the alpha demo period ended, I've been eager to get back into its gloomy, oppressive, oni-filled world for round two. If you missed out on your chance back in A...   read

Team Ninja highlights Nioh demo feedback, planned changes
