Nioh

ps4 exclusive, a souls-like game set in 1600s japan(fantasy-folklore setting)

Nioh (yes, i'm that much lazy)

demo/beta is out along with online functionalities, more of which get unlocked once you beat the first true boss, and et me tell you, that boss is pretty hard.

the game itself reminds me of a mix between dark souls and asura's wrath, with a generic style that also reminds me of the old samurai warriors series on ps2, but environments that look more like stuff such as bc2 vietnam or mgs4.
it's pretty good, the npc fighting is a bit dumbed-down though as the ai is dumb enough that you can kill special enemies just with environmental fire(which is actually a very good idea) however pvp is pretty damn good.

try it out, iirc the demo will be taken off the store the 7th, and then you won't see it anymore until release.

p.s.: to play with summoned enemies, you don't need the ps plus, although i'm not sure about the rest of the online stuff

How the hell could I have missed this game?! This looks absolutely brilliant! I am a massive fan of Ninja Gaiden and Onimusha, and I wonder if they play similarly? I have been waiting for a game like this for quite a while. Of course, I have no PS4, so that's probably the reason why I wasn't aware of this game before now. A phenomenal feature with the game is that you can select frame rate vs graphics! I cannot stand and comprehend why some developers release hack & slash games running in 30 frames per second, so the fact that I can choose to run the game on a console how I want is just beyond my imagination!

Release PS4 NEO already so I can finally get the console and play this game!

i don't know about ninja gaiden, but people who love both dark souls and onimusha said it plays like a mix of both and another game i forgot about(sorry)

there should be plenty of videos and mostly streams anyway, heck, even i streamed most of my playing(right before starting the first boss i stopped)

what i liked the most pardoxally are the side missions, the one set in the flower field was pretty good, it was a 3-stage(or was it 4? ) mission, basically a challenge, where you'd have to kill progressively stronger enemies in waves of 2 or 3.

Did you test the difference between the game running in 60 frames per second and the option to lower it to 30 fps but with better resolution?
If you played through the demo fully in both modes, could you give some thoughts on how they both performed? Especially if the combat got tougher when you switched to 30fps.

not much no, i couldn't stand the hi-res or even hybrid mode, i tried those in the secondary mission, the one in the flower field, and it just was a bummer, thus i kept on playing at 60fps, considering it's a pretty good game to stream, and when streaming you have smaller window view, it wasn't that bad.

Ah, thanks for your thoughts on the matter. So according to you, there was no doubt that the game was more or less unplayable at 30fps AFTER you had tested the standard 60fps? Some people believe that this genre is playable at 30fps but I truly believe that those people haven't actually tested the same or other games at 60fps. Would people seriously sacrifice frame rate for resolution IF they tested the exact same game with both?
Open world games seem to be satisfied with launching at 30fps but those type of games do not seem to be very combat decisive, thus graphics become the priority.

while i wouldn't say that it was unplayable, in that specific area i just couldn't stand it, as in me personally, bt i can see how some people might prefer it, the visual quality in both fps and resolution is clearly visible to the naked eye.

Did you see the PS4 PRO reveal yesterday? A little disappointing not seeing any Japanese games taking advantage of the features. I am still hoping we will see plenty at TGS but will Japanese people afford buying a new console so early on with the tax increases in 2014 etc?

I hope the PRO will enable a combined Action and Movie mode for Nioh.
