Yeah it will definitely take some time getting used to. Maybe they'll make an AP classic for oldtimers like me
Which classic? There were so many over the decades.
I wouldn't even want to compare it to souls games all that much, since it's a blend of so many games. Just gives people the wrong impression. The only souls thing i admit it has is dying and picking up currency from your remains, and maybe shrines since the work similarly to bonfires in DS1. Other than that, nothing else comes to mind. Stamina bar is nothing that Souls games invented and the setting is a fictional version of Japan around 1600.
I do wonder who we'll get to meet. Hattori hanzo is already in it, but there is just so many famous people from that era. Heck they could even put in a young Miyamoto Musashi or even Oda Nobunaga in some undead form or something. :D
Spear all the way. Nioh is the first game where as a spear users you're the baddest mofo of them all. Easiest to bait them with as well.
In this demo just go crazy and try everything, no need to be careful about stat distribution.
Ninjutsu tab is hiding some pretty awesome stuff. Like backstab and "mines",…
I admit i haven't found the need for explore magic more than the usual resistance talismans which come in quite handy.
I do wonder what the 4th columns will bring in retail. This can't be all they're giving us. :S
Also revenants are the best thing ever. Fun to toy with and a good source of better loot.
