The Big Topic: You oughta Nioh
Further Discussion: Hands on with Nintendo Switch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Breath of the Wild and more.
What we’re into: Gorogoa and What Became of Edith Finch amaze at PAX South.
Impossible things are happening every week in 2017. Last week it was a legitimately great new Resident Evil game, and this week it’s the return of Team Ninja with Nioh. Fans of Dark Souls and Bloodborne may love the new action RPG - with some reservations as described by Lucas Sullivan - but fans of Ninja Gaiden Black will just be happy to see the studio making a well executed action game again. After that, we hear from Dave Roberts about a huge swath of playable Nintendo Switch games including Mario Kart 8, Has Been Heroes, Zelda, and 1-2-Switch. Finally, Susan Arendt walk us through surreal adventure game What Became of Edith Finch and the decade-in-the-making puzzler Gorogoa.
