Nioh 2 has experienced a renewed surge of interest since the PS5 remaster came around. But after putting it down almost a year ago, getting back into this beastly grindcore soulslike can be daunting. This week, Mike & Alex are here to go over some of the mechanical complexities and unique aspects of Nioh 2. Including a discussion of burst counters, efficient loot recyling, Niohs historical fantasy & overall accessibility in comparison to other soulslike games.

Also including a brief discussion of Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood & Ys IX: Monstrum Nox; both will be treated further next week.
