24 Feb

Nioh is very popular.

The figure was announced by Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja, as reported by Gamer.ne.jp (via Gematsu), and includes digital as well as retail shipments.

To celebrate, Team Ninja will be gifting all players the Golden Nioh Armour in-game.

Streamer Completes Nioh Speedrun In 1 hour 36 Minutes

21 Feb

Speedruns have been a part of gaming since as long as anyone can remember and to that very effect, a Nioh speedrun is no surprise either as someone has just managed to set the world record for that game. Twitch streamer Distortion2 managed to complete a Nioh speedrun in just 96 minutes, becoming the first […]

Someone finished Nioh in 96 mins, hats off to this new world record holder

21 Feb

Nioh is tough, but some people are just tougher.

A new Nioh speedrun record has been established.

Twitch streamer Distortion2 made an all main missions Nioh run in 1:36:51, a feat he describes as “a decent run”.

He died about six times during the attempt, so he believes he can shave the time down to below 90 mins. Nioh has pretty quick respawn times, thankfully. You can watch the full run via the YouTube embed above.

It’s kind of funny how for some of us Nioh is much tougher than Souls games, but for others it seems to be a walk in the park. Team Ninja’s action legacy means there’s less opportunity to over-level or cheese your way through encounters, but some people really thrive on that nerve-edge of precise action gaming – like this person who just walks all over one of Dark Souls 3’s toughest bosses.

Those of us who can’t do that and prefer to leverage RPG systems will find Nioh tougher than Souls. Nioh is slightly less forgiving in that you can’t co-op your way through it, too. Alas!

How are you finding Nioh’s difficulty? Do you think you could knock it over in an hour and a half once you knew your way around and how to defeat each major boss?

Thanks, Joab!

Nioh is getting even harder next month, PvP and first DLC coming in April

20 Feb

Nioh has plenty more content to offer, free and paid alike.

nioh_boss_derrick

Nioh developer Team Ninja has outlined its immediate post-release support plans.

Drawing on a Japanese livestream, Gematsu reports Nioh players can expect two free updates across the next two months, followed by three DLC packs. Here’s the schedule:

  • In late March, Team Ninja will release a free Nioh update with 10 high difficulty missions, including boss rush-style missions.
  • In late April, another free update will add a PvP update to Nioh.
  • The first Nioh DLC, Dragon of Tohoku, also arrives in late April. It includes new weapons, scenarios, characters, guardian spirits, yokai and stages.
  • The second Nioh DLC is called Japan’s Best Warrior and has not been dated.
  • The third Nioh DLC is called Peaceful and Tranquil and has not been dated.

Nioh seems to be pretty popular at the moment; it definitely owes a lot to the Souls series but get past that first hour and hit the second boss to see just how much it differs; Team Ninja’s fabled action skills take the game in a pretty different direction.

Anyway, the fervent, growing Nioh fanbase ought to be pretty pleased with these updates; let’s hope there’ll be more free missions later on, too.

It’s Nioh time again: come watch us apply lessons learned as we dive back into battle with the yokai

20 Feb

Nioh is tough, and it never stops demanding more of the player. Will we conquer?

Watch live video from vg247 on www.twitch.tv

Nioh players have a lot of gameplay choices. Even before we get into gear and abilities, there’s the whole stance thing – and perhaps even more fundamentally, the moment to moment decision to block or dodge incoming attacks.

If you come at Nioh from a Souls background you may favour dodging over rolling, but for all the similarities Nioh is not a Souls game, and there comes a point where the game just says “look, you have to learn to block, or you’re going to be stuck here forever”.

Of course, it isn’t so kind as to say this explicitly; it just throws enemies you can’t dodge at you and expects you to figure it out. In a recent Nioh stream, Shabana went through this learning process – and now she’s ready to kick butt, or limb, or head, or whatever surface is presented to her – be it flesh or carapace or what.

Tune in above to see what challenges are in store in our continuing Nioh adventures. We don’t know what’s out there, but we do know we’re going to beat it the heck up.

Nioh Trophies Guide – Kusarigama Master, Onmyo Magic Master, Ninjitsu Master

20 Feb

Nioh is a PlayStation 4 exclusive game and like all others, the title comes with a handful of trophies for you to earn. The following guide will help you understand how to get some of the trophies of Nioh.

For more help on Nioh, read out our Beginner’s Guide, Ki Management Guide, and Skill Points Guide.

Nioh Trophies Guide

Kusarigama Master
REQUIREMENT: Acquired mystic art for the kusarigama

Becoming a Kusarigama Master is not easy, in order to get this trophy you first need to reach the Sekigahara Region and complete the Immortal Flame Main mission. Once you are done, this will unlock new missions in the dojo that will help you obtain weapon based mystic arts.

Each weapon type requires 500K proficiency to unlock the mystic art for it. Get 500K points to unlock the dojo mission and complete it before buying the mystic art with skill points.

The best way to farm proficiency points is by completing the main storyline and coming back via the newgame+ mode. Keep in mind that maximum proficiency number is 100 million for each weapon. However, the game will keep counting in the background when you go past that number.

In the newgame+ mode, the drop rate is higher for divine items which makes this process a lot easier compared to your first playthrough. Since the enemies now also have a higher level, they give a massive boost to proficiency points. The higher the mission level, the more points you can get. Consider newgame+ missions are proficiency points multipliers.

Here’s a tip, keep facing the Onryoki boss but allow him to kill you before his HP runs out. Death won’t result in loss of points.

Ninjutsu Master
REQUIREMENT: Acquired mystic art for Ninjutsu

Before you can get the trophy, you need to complete A True Ninja dojo mission. In order to unlock this mission, you need 20 dojo points in dexterity and complete the mission A Defiled Holy Mountain.

You also need to complete Novice, Adept, and Veteran levels of the dojo quest The Way of the Ninja. You need 5+ dexterity points each of the questline – 5 each for Novice, 10 for Adept, and 15 for Veteran, 20 for A True Ninja.

Once all requirements are met, A True Ninja will unlock in the dojo. Complete this mission and the mystic art will unlock. Buy the mystic art and you will unlock the trophy.

Onmyo Magic Master
REQUIREMENT: Acquired mystic art for Onmyo Magic

In order to get this trophy you need to complete a dojo mission called A Great Harmony. Invest 20 attribute points in magic and complete main mission A Defiled Holly Mountain.

You also need to complete Novice, Adept, and Veteran levels of the dojo quest The Way of the Ninja. You need 5+ magic points each of the questline – 5 each for Novice, 10 Adept, and 10 for Veteran, 20 for A Greater Harmony.

Once the A Greater Harmony is completed the relevant mystic art will unlock. Buy it to get the trophy.

Starting a new character in Nioh could overwrite your old save

16 Feb

There’s a major bug in Nioh that could result in the loss of your main character if you decide to create a new one.

nioh_july_blast_screen_4

When starting Nioh for the first time, you are not prompted to create a character. Instead, you start it the same way you would any single-player game: play using the standard protagonist.

The game doesn’t tell you one way or another that this is the only save you could have, which led some into creating new save files to start over after learning the ropes, or simply as a way of experimenting with a fresh build.

For some players, however, this did not go too well, as the game sometimes decides to delete your original save. More than one Reddit user have faced the same problem, and they all appear to have lost access either to their entire first save, or a decent chunk of the most recent progress made there.

The issue is that the game isn’t upfront about this, so you never know until you’ve actually run into the issue. Other players are juggling multiple saves without issue, so clearly it’s possible. But, because there are no dedicated slots in the traditional sense, you’re kind of making a gamble if you decide to start a new save.

One NeoGAF user also found this out the hard way, even using a single PSN account.

For now, if you have to start a new character for any reason, make sure to back up your original save file to a USB before doing so. Until the issue is fixed, or Team Ninja explains what’s causing this, it’s not worth losing hours of progress.

Nioh – use this strategy for an always-charged Living Weapon

15 Feb

The Nioh community has come up with another way of making boss fights trivial.

nioh-4

Nioh offers you a wide range of skills in each of the weapon trees, not to mention the many ninja and Onmyo options at your disposal.

Because of this, the number of possible combinations, and the effect each of them has on the game’s various enemies, can be harder to predict. We’ve already seen what using the Sloth Talisman does to bosses and other fast enemies, and another new tactic has now emerged.

The strategy, as demonstrated in the video by YouTuber PowerPyx, relies on Soulstones to charge up the Living Weapon instantly. Living Weapon amps up your damage considerably, and prevents you from losing health when taking damage.

Consuming Soulstones, and other Spirit Stones will charge up your Living Weapon, and obviously grant you some Amrita. But the trick here is to have a number of them ready so you can use Living Weapons back to back, for maximum potency.

Beware of very late-game sub-mission boss spoiler.

With that said, this particular tactic is more risky than using the Sloth Talisman, since the damage output also takes into account how many points you put into Spirit. In addition, having a decent supply of Soulstones is not easy, since they’re random drops and you’ve most probably used up many of them trying to level up.

In any case, it’s something to consider if you’re running into unbeatable bosses.

Nioh has been patched to 1.03, fixing up a few broken sub-missions

15 Feb

There’s a new patch available for Team Ninja’s diabolical samurai-em-up.

The 1.03 update is fairly minor, but the changes it introduces may clear things up for anyone who has encountered issues so far. The Magatama of Fire and A Fiercer Flame have both been fixed, and a few minor adjustments have been made.

If you’re having problems beyond that, it could be that you’re playing it wrong. It might be worth checking out our extensive guide, or our archived Twitch streams of the game.

Nioh is out now on PS4.
