Review: Nioh: Defiant Honor

Nioh pretty much knocked it out of the park already, but a string of DLC and free updates have bolstered its lifespan for those of you who aren't into grinding for loot and stats to take on those New Game+ challenges. Both add-ons haven't r...

Nioh's Defiant Honor DLC should be another good one

I left Dragon of the North wanting even more Nioh, both because I'm not burned out on the game yet and also because the new story thread feels like it's only just getting started. The second expansion, Defiant Honor, picks back up on July 2...

Review: Nioh: Dragon of the North

Nioh was a sleeper hit in my household. A lot of folks saw it coming and never lost faith in Team Ninja, but after Ninja Gaiden 3 I was ready for anything. Against my odds they delivered and my faith has been restored, but Nioh's ...

Slipping in right before tomorrow's launch, Team Ninja has a trailer out for Dragon of the North, the first major DLC for Nioh. As I was just saying the other day, I'll gladly take any old excuse to get back into this game -- it's a top te...

Latest Nioh update lets you pause the game

Just when I think I'm out, they pull me right back in. While the big "Wait, really?" part of this week's Nioh update is undoubtedly the newfound ability to pause the game when you aren't in multiplayer and summoning a co-op visitor, that's ...

This hour-and-a-half Nioh speedrun isn't messing around

Nioh is still new. There are untold builds, routes, and exploits left for the community to discover. And yet here we already are, two weeks after release, with a 1:36:51 "All Main Missions" run by Distortion2. There's a lot of running and ...

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...

How to identify and deal with Nioh's mimic chests

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...

Very Quick Tips: A Nioh Guide

Nioh can get really rough at points. That's a good thing, mind, as long as you're okay with "two to three hit kill" bosses type of rough. Here are some tips to help you along the way.

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...

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...

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...

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 ...

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...

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...
