Default Nioh for PS4

Looking pretty great so far. Very Souls'ish combat crossed with some Onimusha.

Just announced a release date of 2016 and an Alpha demo for April 26th. Really hope this turns out good.

Alpha Demo out and it's fucking hot! It's pretty much Dark Souls with a samurai skin and it totally fucked my shit up.

Here's the stream I was running. Might want to skip forward 20-30 minutes when I started to actually make it past the first couple of guys. Wish I had been recording my profanity filled tantrums each time I died.

Played up to the first enemy and deleted the demo, perhaps it's because I'm hooked on DS3 at the moment but nioh is not for me. Movement is awkward and combat had no weight to it.

Even the "framerate optimized" option didn't run very well.

Yeah, I noticed that the game was blurrier/jaggier AND actually performed choppier than the 30fps/"frame-locked" 'action mode'. (It's odd that they'd call the smoother version "movie mode" too)

Which is weird because the trade off for smoother performance is a drastic drop to 720p/900p adaptive resolution vs. 900p/1080p for the 30fps mode.

What do you mean by weight to the combat? Kind of hard to judge a game by one weapon one enemy and a single stance with no upgrades unlocked.

In the DS franchise for example, your movement and sword swings have feeling of commitment and gravity to them.
I'm doubting this "walking on air" feeling changes in nioh with upgrades and against other enemies.
If it reviews good, I'll rent the full title and give it another shot.
