Team Ninja is launching with Nioh 2 soon, and the Ninja Gaiden developers prove, once again, that it can make games just as good as From Software
I still need Bloodborne 2 despite NiOh 2 being this good.
Clicked to say exactly that.
Love Nioh to death, but would stil LOVE Bloodborne 2 ( PS5 maybe? :)
Me, i need Bloodborne 2 and Nioh 2.
Queue the "why not both" meme
im good nioh aint hittin for me
Mmhmm. I played nioh and I was sitting here going "oh my God I can't believe how bad this is." It has this complicated just to be complicated feel vs tough but fair. It has none of the balance that any of the souls games have.
maybe games like nioh just aint for you bro or you just suck at them
Oh good Lord. There is no just comparison between bloodborne and nioh. Bloodborne is a masterpiece and nioh is just a bloated, unbalanced knockoff.
Knockoff? Team Ninja made Ninja Gaiden before From made Souls. Not their first masochistic rodeo. Platinumed both. Both good, but not without their spikes and grinds.
Ninja gaiden is not even in the same category. I'm talking about balance polish and gameplay. From software nobody can match their level of quality. Sekiro, souls, bloodborne, all superior to Nioh. I love team Ninja. I've always been a big fan of theirs but nioh...no. I'm really glad it's sold well but I think if they would have cleaned up the combat a lot more and made it less bloated while still keeping it complex it would have been just fine. The game is hard just to be hard. and souls, it's hard, but it's meant to be overcome and mastered which is possible. where nioh, it's just straight up like that and it doesn't feel they understand what souls did.
“ The game is hard just to be hard. and souls, it's hard, but it's meant to be overcome and mastered which is possible. where nioh, it's just straight up like that...” You act like no one’s ever beaten Nioh. Use the two stealth scrolls cat walking and suppa, quick change to avoid death, spam sloth talisman on aggressive agiles. Carnage to steel talisman buffs the debuff. It’s all there. Same as soul ray in Demons Souls and old hunters bone in BB. Just gotta find your game changer(s). “..it doesn't feel they understand what souls did.” Then it’s not a knockoff. Was it harder and more unfair at times? Yes. Did I prefer BB? Yes, but for different reasons. The Lovecraftian atmosphere, lore and rogues gallery. I see more of a vs between Nioh 2 and Ghost of Tsushima this year (console exclusive samurai slashers).
Nioh is good. Nioh 2 even better than the first one.
Dont be so stupid. Bloodborne was a FAR superior game than NIOH.
You got that right. Nioh sucked. I wanted it to be good. But it was just another soul's knockoff in my opinion with awful balance and terrible graphics. The combat was awful too. Maybe I'm spoiled by Miyazaki but I expect a certain level of balance in my games, no matter how hard, in souls it was always fair. Nioh did not have balance at all.
I disagree, both were fantastic though bloodborne is my game of the generation
Don't get me wrong, I loved Nioh back when it released. But after playing Sekiro, and then trying out the beta for Nioh 2, I dunno... The combat just doesn't feel as tight or impactful as it should.
Yep. Sekiro is freaking excellent. But then again I expect nothing less from Miyazaki. His level of balance and combat polish in his games is outstanding. Honestly nobody has been able to emulate it. they have tried but they haven't matched his level.
I know what you mean and you are right.
Not the same aesthetic or combat, but okay.
nioh was brilliant but story telling and atmosphere is nowhere near bloodborne levels
I liked Nioh but it wasnt nearly as good as bloodborne, will definitely buy nioh 2 though. As for bloodborne 2, well I'll even buy a 500$ console day one for that game.
Imo I rather have a BB2 than a Nioh 2. I never finished the first Nioh though I'll get back to it one day but I completed the campaign for BB twice & I would love to play a sequel.
Bloodborne is an objectively superior game compared to Nioh. Bloodborne is gothic horror, and Nioh is ninja horror. I would think that those that like gothic horror would want Bloodborne 2 over Nioh 2. Great advert I suppose.
A headline like that is just asking for trouble.
Whoa I'm mega hyped for nioh 2 and I loved the 1st one...but Bloodborne is my game of the generation
I don’t play dark souls or bloodborne but nioh is one of my favorite games. Being difficult isn’t a substantive comparison imo. Do you even level up in bloodborne?
It's just dull marketing. No one would say no if you could have both.
I like Nioh more than the souls games, sorry! I just value gameplay more. Nioh had an absolutely outstanding combat system that evolved throughout the game as you acquired new skills. It felt like a character action game and souls game combined which I loved. Boodborne and Dark Souls are about as far from a character action game as you can get. Still love those games, but I play them for the atmosphere and excellent level design... two areas where Nioh is admittedly lacking.
I honestly don’t want BloodBorne 2 it would ruin the beauty of the original game for me just like the sequels to Dark Souls did for that game.
I need Bloodborne 2.
bloodborne 2 all day long for me over nioh 2.
I do. Nioh 2 is a Day 1 buy but don't disrespect Bloodborne like that.
I can't wait for this game. I still need Bloodborne 2. I DO believe Nioh 2 is going to be better than some give it credit for.
Nioh was soooo fire. Can't wait for this sequel. Also....BLOODBORNE is the shit. Why wouldn't you want a BB 2?
I never played Nioh, but I PLAYED THE HELL out of Bloodborne. To me Bloodborne is the BEST game of this gen. BLoodborne 2 would be most welcome, TAKE MY MONEY DAMMIT!!!
