“A dragon ought to know it is unwise to rile a cat.”
As you’ll hear in this podcast, the history of this one goes way back to 2004, yet it wasn’t until 2017 that we finally got to play Team Ninja’s action RPG, Nioh. Leon, Leah, Rich, Ryan and community correspondents discuss the game’s notorious challenge and its layers and layers of mechanics. We also discuss whether the game’s reputation as a pure ‘Souls-like’ game is fair, or whether there’s actually something else going on here. NB: This game does not depict the Far Eastern adventures of the poet William Blake.
