    Yeah I've done a bit of co-op but only for sides so far, a they seem to be the ones that just chuck waves of yokai at you, so they're good fun with randoms.

    Killed that cat yesterday. He's easy. Less so because of his attacks but more that he doesn't pack much of a punch when he does hit you. Good though.

    After the viper mission I've done the next two main missions and the bosses went down first time - the snake was ridiculous, far too early.

    Im surprised it wasnt patched, if only to bring the health down. The Gaki got nerfed last week so the little wankers wont take half your health in one hit now.

    I quite fancy buying this, but the difficulty is a concern. I know itís contentious, but can anyone tell me whether Nioh 2 has elements to make it a bit easier in a pinch? I heard there is an AI summoning option, but does it even work well? I loved the first Nioh, but never completed it due to my lack of skills, and their failure to pay the bills.

    It's not an artificially difficult game. It rewards patience and paying attention, and optimising your build and etc.

    You can also do the game entirely in co-op, and summon AI phantoms.

    It's really fun though.

    @ryan_isthisit I've summoned a few Ai's but they didn't last long. You can still summon other players which will probably be a better use of the cup things.

    Anyone noticed the colours looking a lot more vibrant since the last patch or is it just me? Looks very HDR now.

    @ryan_isthisit i tried out the first game last week and 2 days later bought 2.

    It feels a lot more approachable for someone who (like me) was on the fence.

    If you enjoyed the first still you should definitely enjoy this. AI is handy, proper multiplayer even more so. The difficulty spikes are there but patience and practice will win. Iíve not looked at my stats nor do i know if it shows number of deaths, but i donít care now as iím enjoying it still and progressing

    Enjoying my Odachi Onmyo build, just finished area 2 now and tore though it. The tengu were harder than the bosses.

    All done. The second to last boss is a bit bullshit and it caused my PS4 to freak out quite a bit, I got a bit tired of it and summoned for that boss.

    What a magnificent game, so addictive and rewarding. Now to NG+, that or a reroll as my character was pretty gimped throughout until the final third.

    Is there anything as insanely hard as the penultimate level in nioh 1? You know that level where you had to best about six bosses then fight a four headed snake thing on top of a building after fighting about three other bosses?

    my onmyo master archer scythe build is pretty fresh. I'm enjoying helping others and since my connection somehow is not good, and I can't summon for help very well, I learned to carry myself pretty decent. For the bosses I summon phantoms just for the distraction purpose.

    But The 3 words mission was tough as hell, I could feel, that I had exactly the wrong build for that guy and it took many attempts.
    That one magic spell he can whistle for is close to cheating.

    and co op with randoms is absolutly awesome!
    89% of the time it was a blast, both players combining their playstyle to a nice successfull run and both being active and using their best that their build has to offer.
    But you will always get a few WTF moments.

    5% summon you and then run off, into the middle of yokai hell, and until you can swipe for the first time, they die and you aren't sure why exactly you got called.

    5% think every summon is God, so they stay back and watch you fight, not understanding you aren't God and need some help now and then.

    And then you get the odd 1% who summon for help and then decide to go cook diner or something. So they just hang at the shrine not moving.
    We were two summons in that level just sweeping the whole lvl for this guy and when every enemy was dead we jumped together off a cliff.
    I really hope this guy didn't pray to the shrine when he got back.

    For me the hardest was Thousand eyes level, with the Kelly clones and the frog boss and having to do it solo. Wasn't even optional!

    Is there any time when they take co-op away from you?

    So the choice of whether to use a book of resurrection versus reroll from the start was made for me by the game as the resurrection books didn't reset skills. Seems like a glitch.

    That level was so much harder than any level from any from software game. I couldn't even be bothered in the end, just summoned for once and felt no guilt as I was just happy to see the back of it. Then the last level you couldn't even summon and it was easy.

    I donít know if you re-specced in the last one, but it was an absolute ballache that it wiped everything, so they split it out. The book of resurrection does your levels and you can re-skill in the dojo.

    Ah so not a glitch, a bona fide feature. Thanks, still, my reroll is lovely, switchblade is a mighty fine weapon.

    Finding this weasel thing in the forest a bit rough. May be because I'm mildly drunk but it's fucking fast.
