GSY Video PS5 PC PS4

The first Nioh got its Complete Edition when it was released on PC so it is no surprise to see that Nioh 2 has been given the same treatment, a few months after it came out as an exclusive title on Playstation 4. Sadly, we ran into many technical issues with the PC version, despite a very powerful rig (RTX 3080, Ryzen 5900X). For starters, we were never able to select 4K as a resolution in the game when playing on our LG CX and HDR didn't work either. Then, performance remained disappointing in 4K, 1440p and even 1080p, which explains the dips you will see. Another oddity on our end is that we've never been able to play the game at 120 fps, it simply wouldn't work. Note that DLSS is supposed to be added for launch as well as Xbox prompt buttons so don't be surprised to see the PS4 ones in our videos... We sincerely hope the game will be patched to fix the technical issues, although we are perfectly aware that not everyone will encounter the same problems than we have. We'll make more videos if things improve (or when it does). PS5 owners are luckier thankfully as we've had no issues when playing the Nioh Collection in either 4K/60fps or 120 fps (we could not record 120 fps gameplay though, our Ninja device doesn't seem to work as it should at such high frame rate). You will also find gameplay PS5 videos of the 2 remastered titles inside.

Bought and played it. Can't say visuals are anything special... actually, it's one of the less impressive games around (visually)

Gameplay-wise... still far from say, Sekiro... and the learning curve is kinda absurd. It feels like it's been done for fans of the series, familiar with it. Will still give it a few more tries to see if it  hooks me up.

Once you've beaten the bosses of mission 2 and 3 (get ready to be frustrated while trying to) things get much easier so hang in there.

What's up?
  • nostradamus

    nostradamus massive downgrades coming from the staples achieved w/ the Halo 3 sandbox/physics, with Dice/BField it should never be a trade-off, ony thing they should be trading its engine if it isnt up 3 the job (4 Hours ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus Halo keeps being this Sonic title bait & switch "will their next title be able to Look up par with its current gen counterparts"? Never. Even Halo 4 who was pretty good on Campaign suffered from (4 Hours ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus tech? I dunno, go get some insight of Activision (the good input, not the misogyny), all they COD devs make evident generation leaps tech-wise. Do they keep being the same core IP? I think so. (4 Hours ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus so Halo must be thet bottomb of the barrel FPS to keep its identity. Add some negligible subsurface scattering reflections or some other tech only possible now and call it the day copy/pasting the ol (4 Hours ago)

  • b0vril

    b0vril yea but, would it be halo then? (5 Hours ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus engines. I mean, If you can have a PS3 Ratchet & Clanck that looks like a vaseline ps3 game, and a PS5 Ratchet&Clack that looks like a goddamn next-gen game, why can't Halo Evolve - Ugly FPS Seal™ (1 Day ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus Halo Infinite sure is one ugly damn game. Pretty obvious nothing is going to massible change if the Ip doesn't die and start from the ground up with another publisher/dev that doesn't retread the ol (1 Day ago)
