Are you a samurai? If your answer to that question is “no” then the big release this week is your opportunity to be a samurai and I would encourage you to check it out. If your answer to that question was “yes” then I encourage you to reach out to me on Twitter as I would love to talk to a samurai! What is the big release I am talking about? Let’s check it out…

Nioh (PS4)

A sprawling action-RPG, Nioh puts you in control of William, a Westerner who has come to Japan in search of an enemy. Inspired by Dark Souls, Onimusha, and Diablo, you must navigate William through brutally difficult missions while collecting loads of loot to better outfit your character. Throw in an extremely deep combat system, crazy bosses with loads of health, and you have a game many think is far more challenging than any Souls game or Bloodborne with completion times ranging from 40 hours to near 100. I am really looking forward to Nioh, and while I will definitely play it, I may not pick this up day one as I still have to finish up Gravity Rush 2 and Yakuza 0 along with a couple review assignments. However, 2017 is off to a bang for PlayStation and Nioh is contending to be the best of the bunch!

That is it for me this week. Are you brave enough take on the challenge of Nioh or is it looking like it may be too much for you? Comment below or hit me up on Twitter to chat about it!
