Seems like Suda51 saw Frozen, played Dark Souls, and then got the lyrics mixed up.

The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Is anyone playing Nioh? Use this thread to discuss it. Spoilers are most likely.

I've been playing it and really enjoying it. Made it to the second region. Running around with light armor, specializing in spears and dual swords. I'm trying out regular swords for now, though.

I really want this game - just waiting for a price cut!
Never picked up a Dark Souls game, but samurais are way cooler so it tickles my fancy!

I'm kinda getting bored of Nioh, to be honest with you. :/

The biggest difference between Dark Souls and Nioh, is how the game is set out. In Dark Souls, you're given a vast world (not quite free roam or Skyrim) where every area is somehow connected, and you'll find new access points, short cuts etc. to find new areas. In later games, they introduce a way to warp to each newly discovered location.

In Nioh however, you're given a world map in which you select where you want to go. Each area you go to is in a sense, its own dungeon, where none of it is linked and a lot of it is optional.

I don't really like that, it makes me lose the sense of wander and discovery, which is what I loved about Dark Souls.

Combat feels a lot faster than Dark Souls, which I kinda like but at the same time, feels awfully repetitive. Equipment drops like crazy, very similar to Diablo. I'm constantly visiting my inventory to look at the crap I just picked up.

To tell you the truth, I guess I'm kinda disappointed... I bought Resident Evil VII (for a heavily discounted price), never finished it and put it down, now I'm starting to feel the same about Nioh?
