    You can reset your skill tree choices at any time by visiting the Dojo and pressing Triangle. Costs a few Gold. Try the Teahouse. He sells them for Glory. And they start off cheap.

    I just made the mistake of joining the Nioh discord looking for some drunken jolly coop, and all i got was a Level 300 player absolutely wrecking the mission and the experience (i.e. off he goes, and everything dies immediately, the boss lasted 5 seconds or so). Not my idea of fun!

    Area 4-2 is giving me flashbacks of Demon's 5-2. Only now its beautiful paddy fields and not a putrid swamp. The whole level is a bastard with its ankle-deep water mobility. Not fun, but i'll grin & bear it.

    Tip for re-speccing (because Books of Resurrection get increasingly more expensive): copy your save data to USB. That way if your new choices don't suit your playstyle, you can overwrite your current save and you lose nothing, only a little time. I've done that more times than i'd care to count.

    Dreams - It's out!

    I saw that on Twitter last night. Unbelievable!

    Yeah but doesn't playing a game for review skew how you feel about it when the credits roll (i.e. a certain sigh of relief)? Work is still work, even when its fun. Or is it? Either way i can understand why anyone would feel fatigued after completing this mammoth of a game.

    This game can feel like a nightmare with all its intricacies and mechanics, but the rules for your NG playthrough are: Choose a prefered weapon, and do it quickly. Pump the stats that affect your main weapon. I would recommend 10 in Body and 10 in Heart just for survivability. If you wanna dabble in Ninja or Magic, fine! But don't let it distract you from the melee combat. Dismantle every pick-up thats not an instant upgrade to your current like-for-like set-up. Keep playing. Unlock the Smithing Texts that help your chosen build. Forge your own versions of the gear you like (which have lower stat requirements than dropped armour). Do not spend money on Soul Matching unless it's a unique, non-forge-able item - its too expensive! Keep playing! Start upgrading other stats once you hit the diminshing returns on your main weapon added parameters. What looks like B+ now, will change to A and more once NG+ kicks in. Everything else is NG+ and beyond, which is where the game really begins. I know its gonna be a huge undertaking for most, given how big this game is. But your first playthrough is almost like the longest tutorial of all time. You've gotta be a real fanatic to get the most out of it.

    Typical! I get an evening when i can play this game, and all i've been doing with my time is re-rolling stats over & over to see how big a difference added parameters are (at this point in the game). The problem is; i've loved ranged magic since Soul Arrow in Demon's Souls - its how i approach any first playthrough of a Souls-like (zap > come here > melee > done > next). Its simple and cowardly, but its very effective. Omnyo (aka Magic) in this and the original, offers all that and more - with easy elemental debuffs on top. The conundrum i have is that Magic scales with Switchglaive, which i have used for 40+ hours now, and its a great weapon, but to get the best out of it you need to be doing optimal combo/transform skills which means a lot of button dexterity. I prefer things a little more simple than that. So maybe i should go back to Sword? (i used it for 200+ hours in Nioh).
  11. VFW - Thoroughly enjoyable Fangoria schlock-fest with a terrific cast of has-beens. 4/5

    Cracking session with @pledge this evening, once we figured out Expeditions are for when both players need to complete the level. I'm still rocking Hatchets even though my build is pure Magic. Weapon scaling really doesn't matter at this point in the game (SL60). I've re-rolled my stats and loaded back from USB many times, and the Omnyo damage i'm getting isn't worth giving up for a minor improvement in weapon DPS. World Area 3 is a definite jump in enemy HP and Ki. The same-old enemy types are twice as strong. I need to review my gear in the morning and see what changes i can make. What a game!
  13. I farmed Death in order to reach Level 200 (Blast Arrows).

    Oh really? Thats great news. I had a couple of painfully frustrating deaths this morning, so i've decided to 'relax' by revisiting all the earlier levels with my Kodama Sensor enabled, at the same time tinkering about with other weapons because i have Switchglaive fatigue. Hatchets are meaty!
