I will however say that Nioh is NOT as hard as Bloodborne or Dark Souls. But there's a reason for this. There's two schools of thought with the difficulty. Either you can make it really difficult by being cheap, or you can keep it honest and have a game be not as difficult. I feel like Nioh is the latter. There was never a point in the game where I felt something unfair happened. I was able to beat all the bosses in a few tries with a little strategy and some know-how. While with Bloodborne there were bosses I fought 10+ times simply because of cheap/cheesy isht. Both of these elicit different feelings really. When you beat a cheap boss after dying a hundred times you feel gratified as hell but it feels like there's an element of luck. While beating a boss that isn't cheap you feel like it's all you. Guess it just boils down to preference for gamers and developers.
Anyways, I'm looking forward to NG+, maxing out my weapons and titles, getting platinum and playing the DLC and PvP.
I'm still making progress, luckily at a much faster pace than I was before.
Honestly switching to spear as a primary changed the game for me.
