[QUOTE] Recently I started playing Nioh. I know the game has been out for a bit but considering it's long gestation it seems only natural to wait a bit before buying a copy. First off, I like the combat. While the game has the trudge, die, repeat formula of a From Software game the fighting isn't done with the shoulder buttons. Instead, it uses the face buttons which is the way God intended action games to be played. I'm only at the start of the game but I can already feel that I have a fairly good idea of how I'm going to be approaching most fights from now on. Thankfully, the action feels like it's going to be enjoyable no matter how many times I swing my sword. Speaking of which, I'm having trouble deciding on a secondary weapon. My main weapon is the katana since it feels like a decent, well rounded weapon. After that, I'm at a loss. Should I go with double katanas just so I can stroll through the levels wearing three(!) swords? I'm leaning toward using the ninja chain since it seems to have decent crowd control, hits a great deal and -unlike the spear- doesn't clang against the walls as much. One thing that's charming about the game is that it's a bit of a mess. For example: The drops are too frequent so you end up carrying around piles of garbage. The crafting system feels like a lot of work for minimal reward. There is a secondary leveling system involving titles that I discovered and subsequently forgot about until a friend reminded of its existence.

I really like how fully realized each weapon's moveset is, but because the moveset is tied to you the character and not the weapon, finding weapons isn't exciting as it is in Dark Souls, nevermind the sheer frequency with which you find them. The spear to me has the flashiest moveset which makes it fun to use, but I agree that some of that fun gets limited when it's clanging off the walls all the time. I really liked the variety and versatility of the weapon that let me pretend I was [URL=https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/deathbattlefanon/images/b/b9/Earthquake.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20151009020319]Ass-quake[/URL], and it has quite astonishing DPS if you want it to do that. I wasn't a big fan of the double katanas, which neither seemed to be tops in DPS or in terms of interesting moves for the stats I picked for my character. There aren't many kinds of enemies, but all of them are fun to fight except this one ninja enemy that deals way too much dmg wtf
