    Nioh was... pretty decent. But not really a patch on the first two Dark Souls games, in my book. Some nice concepts, but an overly-layered combat system, a poor loot system and a serious lack of enemy and environment variety. Plus the mission structure just wasn't as good as a traditional Soulslike metroidvania world. Of the two Soulslikes released last year, I actually, by a small margin, preferred The Surge to Nioh.

    Edit: Also, Nioh's story was pretty pants. Getting even minimally engaged in it required knowing the outline of the Warring States period. They teach that stuff in school in Japan, but in the rest of the world it's not well known.

    @Rivuzu I do remember Tenchu being fun on the PS1. So if it can replicate some of that I might be interested.

    Gonna say it now.

    We should probably hard steer away from expecting this to be Soulsborne like. Don't even put the two in the same sentence. It's Tenchu. Horror themed Tenchu.

    I'd agree based on that trailer. There was little souls in it apart from some mild horror and some small emphasis on death/reincarnation.

    You only get to die twice then you need to restart from the beginning.

    Combat beats seemed similar which is enough for me.

    The character weight, general movement and combat (so the actually gameplay) all look very Soulsborne to me.

    Jason 'Kotaku Guy' Shricer said the combat was faster than bloodborne but looks really good in a demo he watched.

    Think we have to wait til tomorrow for hands on stuff

    There was a lot more combat in the trailer than I remember in any Tenchu game. Lot's of one on one fights with parrying/dodging etc.

    @Decks yeah, it has the same weight of movement as Souls but also that crazy verticality introduced by the Tenchu-style grappling arm thing.

    That sounds way more interesting than the same game in a different setting. Definitely keeping an eye on this one.

    Yep, awesome can't wait to see some more. Watched the trailer a few times now and those sword duels look fantastic.

    Sounds very unsoulsborne and I love it. Fresh shit. From one of the best game directors.

    @Innit not normally a fan of pc gamers articles but that one was really good I thought.

    This is probably the announcement i'm most excited about - though I've just watched that other samurai game like the Witcher and that looks good too.

    Seems like its the year of the samurai... At least we have something to offset all the post-apocalyptic games coming :)
