Ho, ho, ho, Merry Christmas from Mordor, this is Sauron speaking. Even I like to have a few days off from wreaking havoc and instilling terror on the local populace. And there's no better time for me to enjoy some downtime than a cheeky session of Shadow of War or Nioh. They're the perfect huge games to keep folks busy for the entire holidays. Which though, is best?
I guess the old adage ‘better late than never’ applies here, but Team Ninja has confirmed full mouse and keyboard support will be coming to Nioh: Complete Edition on PC this week.
Nioh Complete Edition’s PC performance is pleasingly great, according to the community, but it does come with some barebones graphics and display settings that are typical of PC ports. One such issue is a screen resolution for Nioh, which can’t be changed in-game.
Uh oh, Tecmo Koei has dropped a clanger here. If you’re thinking of picking up Nioh: Complete Edition when it launches on PC next Tuesday, be warned that those with early copies have confirmed there is no mouse support whatsoever.
It’s snuck up on us like a supernatural samurai in the night, but the PC port of Nioh: Complete Edition is out this very Tuesday. If this is flying under your radar, get your damn radar fixed as it’s the best bits of Dark Souls wrapped up in Sengoku-period Japan with a supernatural twist. It’s unrelentingly punishing and the main bloke looks a whole lot like Geralt, so what’s not to love. Nioh’s currently rocking an 88% average from 100 reviews on Metacritic. If that doesn’t sway you, I don’t what will.
Team Ninja game director, Fumihiko Yasuda, has revealed during an interview that the upcoming Nioh: Complete Edition for PC will not include Denuvo Anti-Tamper DRM support.
Yesterday, Koei Tecmo confirmed Team Ninja's sublime Nioh would be making the jump to PC this November. Packing all the DLC, 4K support, and graphical enhancements, it promises to be the definitive version of Nioh. This odyssey through supernatural Japan doesn't exactly go on easy on your rig though. Brace yourselves, here are the official Nioh system requirements.
The critically acclaimed Nioh will be coming to PC this holiday season, publisher Koei Tecmo has confirmed. Team Ninja’s self-styled ‘massocore’ (a portmanteau of masochistic and hardcore) hack and slasher is feudal Japanese Dark Souls, in a nutshell. If the (ex) PS4 exclusive has passed you by, it’s most definitely work checking out. Over on OpenCritic it’s currently rocking an average of 88/100, making it one of the top games of the year.
A big batch of screenshots for Nioh have been released, showcasing the stunning new locales and evil yokai that will no doubt find justice at the end of William’s blade. From Ninja Gaiden developer Team Ninja, and packing a few heavy nods to the Souls series, it’s easy to see why Nioh is getting action fans pulses racing.
It’s a common refrain to hear the current crop of consoles compared to cut-down PCs thanks to their x86 architecture, game installations, and operating systems. Now they’re taking an even bigger step closer to PCs with Nioh, a Souls-esque PlayStation 4 exclusive that lets users bump up the graphics or opt for a higher frame rate.
Team Ninja’s Nioh is continuing to look totally legit in the latest trailer. After a string of titles which couldn’t quite live up to the mastery of Ninja Gaiden, the Japanese studio is back and looking in rampant form with Nioh. Souls aping but in the best possible way, and drawing just as much inspiration from its Ninja Gaiden lineage, Nioh is a hack and slasher set in 16th century Japan. Ah, and it looks like a hard-as-nails of course. In fact, it’s going to be so tricky that Kou Shibusawa, general producer on Nioh, has dubbed it masocore, a portmanteau of ‘hardcore’ ’masochism’. Fist bump Kou, you know where it’s at.
