With Sekiro out in the world, what does Nioh 2 have to do to keep pace with FromSoftware?
Sekiro's combat, art direction, enemy variety and level design are far superior to Nioh's imo.
Nioh had some decent level designs the issue for me is having a screen that select stages instead of it all being connected. I really hope they just make one big connected area or at least less separated stages.
Nani? Nioh had 3 styles per weapon and had more interesting item hunting. Theyre pretty different and sekiro is very niche and is pure katanarama
Sekiro has all those styles as well but you need to pull them off yourself insteas of selecting them. Sekiro’s combat is far superior
Sekiro's combat is better in my opinion too, but far superior is slightly hyperbolic. Nioh is still a fantastic game.
Lol disagress From Soft is apex predator when it comes to The souls formula. They created it, and Sekiro is the superior game in any way. I loved Nioh but Sekiro is just something else
I don't believe that at all. Sekiro had very simple reaction based combat. I think Nioh had better combat, and I know it has better multiplayer since Sekiro doesn't have any at all. To each their own opinion though.
They’re not the same kind of game.
But it’s trash, no one likes it. For a FromSoft game it’s absolutely a disaster in the sales numbers cause it has no weapons and way too hard for the average dark souls player without coop. It’s sucks basically
Speak for yourself. It's my favorite From Software game to date. Focusing on a single weapon allowed them to make the combat more skill based and encounters far more balanced. It's one of my favorite games of all time.
It may not be as good as Bloodborne or DarkSouls, but Sekiro is still a stellar title in my opinion. I completed it, albeit, with a few bumps in the road and I loved everything about it.
I won't call the game trash. I disliked the combat. I missed the multiplayer, but I like/love the game. Just not my fav. I don't think I will ever play it again. That was my big takeaway after I finished it. I said, "Will I ever play this again" and my answer was a resounding, "No." With other From titles I am usually excited to keep playing. I would be curious how many people who beat the game would say that they enjoyed it but will never touch it again, lol.
Sekiro recycles bosses a bit too much to be honest. A dude you killed not so long ago is strolling around admiring the scenery. Lol.The art style is great though.
I think the two games are just different and that's it... I didn't think about Nioh not even once while playing Sekiro.
I agree with everything but combat. Sekiro's combat was weak compared to Nioh. So much weapon variety and fun was to be had in mastering the different weapons and that ki pulse was excellent. In Sekiro, I was hitting steel together over and over or parrying. I don't get any fun from Sekiro's combat, and only human interaction time comes into play. Frankly, it felt like quick time events, like I was playing Until Dawn or something. Not fun to me. Bloodborne and Dark Souls both had much better combat imho, but Nioh has the best. Another way Nioh was better was its excellent online features. Finally, Nioh also had more variety in the world, where separate stages were widely differentiated. In Sekiro I felt I was usually in the same place throughout the entire campaign. I love both games. Sekiro's combat this time was not to my preference, and I much prefer Nioh in the combat and online department. I do agree with killswitch80 that I wish the world was interconnected in Nioh. I got the distinct feeling that was done to save money. Hopefully with a bigger budget, they can create a more cohesive world.
Zelda's combat, art direction, enemy variety, and level design are far superior to Mario Bros imo. This is basically what you're saying. NiOh and Sekiro are very different games, they just both have a Japanese aesthetic.
It's already superior because when you die you return as the demon that killed you.
I know a way they can stand out. Release it exclusively on the epic game store
pretty good chance the From Software project will be since they have been training personal on UE4.
Will the gaming community turn on from software when they do that?
They are a lot different to me already
Just make sure it has an easy mode and is gender sensitive.
Game Journalism Mode
Just make it similar to the first one but with more content or content that is just as fun.
Blimey, Nioh was already a pretty packed game, I dont know that content was an issue for Nioh.
More content? You mean the thousands of armor drops which you'll never use were not enough?
I find Nioh has superior combat design. Sekiro is just hit R1 and deflect. There is no combos or different weapons. Nioh is way richer. Just not having that dragonrot unnessesary system and that ridiculous difficulty will make Nioh way more enjoyable to the masses.
I love Nioh to bits, but you are being way too reductive about Sekiro's combat. Sekiro made me feel like such a bad ass shinobi when you deflect everything to create an opening to attack, I loved it!
I agree to a certain extent. I wouldn't necessarily disparage Sekiro's combat, but I also agree that I much preferred the combat in Dark Souls, Nioh, and Bloodborne. Instead of being based on combos and strategy, it is strictly based on the players reaction time vs the environment. I prefer combos and strategy as the focus vs pure reaction time. When reaction time is so heavily weighted in a combat system, sometimes strategy goes out the window. I want a system that requires strategy and reaction time. That is Nioh. It also helps that Nioh is more of an RPG and Sekiro while having light rpg elements, is more of an action game. Thus my preference for strategy is more easily realized in Nioh.
Yeap. I agree with you. I love From Software games but I am not a fan of that Sekiro pure reaction time based combat.
Nioh was fiiiiiiire!!!!!!
being different than sekiro is easy: just do a good game. nioh is 100 better than sekiro, and i can predict that nioh 2 will be awesome
