And you're most likely playing it maxed out on pc. Imagine it on consoles including the PS5. The last time Team Ninja made impressive looking titles i think it was NG and DOA3. Everything released after these two, they barely update their visuals. Their Nioh engine is straight up from over 10 years ago, back when Nioh 1 was supposed to be a PS3 game.

Yeah man, it's pretty wild. Add to that how much performance it eats while looking so dated. I bought a XBX last year to play NG2 with enhanced BC. Not exaggerating at all when I say some aspects of that 2008 game look comparable.

Want to say they've just been iterating on the same old engine since the OG Xbox. I've noticed a lot of the same visual hiccups across their games.

Engine issues aside, there's just some straight up amateurish shit at play. The art direction carries the visuals a lot, but even that's a mixed bag. Can get behind most of the character and creature work, a lot of good stuff. Even the environment assets are... ok. But their lighting and post process volumes are all over the place. Sometimes looks great, sometimes looks like some kid just opened a game engine for the first time. And they'll have hard cuts from one volume to the next making it even more noticeable.

All that said, still digging the game a lot. Just hoping Ninja Gaiden gets better treatment.

Oh you really don't need to convince me lol, its precisely what i've been saying since Nioh 1. When they announced/shown Nioh 2, and i saw the visuals, which are virtually the same (with some improvements in character facial details, particle effects and and and... nothing else or at least i haven't noticed anything else) i just couldn't believe what i am seeing here. The original looked really dated. One of the ugliest games i played on my ps4. You look at other 60fps titles such as MGS5 and its literally nigh and day when it comes to visuals, and that game isn't running in 720p like Nioh 1 did. But that's 'ok', i don't think they had a big budget for the original Nioh and from what we known, it went through development hell. The game was very successful and very well received. Now, wtf is the excuse for Nioh 2 to look the way it does?

I want to play it, but when i see the effort being put in it, its real hard to support the damn thing (remind me of Ubisoft kind of a sequel 🤮). I do miss slicing shit up with dual katanas, tho.

@hardwenzen:

Yeah I get you. After the success of the first, perfectly reasonable to expect significantly better production from the sequel. Doesn't have to be holy shit AAA, but at least bring it into modern times lol.

Guessing some bean counter at KT interpreted it differently. "Oh, well if gamers accepted it the first time, lets just run with that again!"

Still though, good game. Expands on everything good about Nioh 1 and adds some extra layers. The new Yokai system/mechanics are pretty dope. Should definitely check it out on a deep discount at least.

On that note, more Nioh 2. 😁

Probably gonna refashion my armor set. Locked into Fuma Ninja gear, it's everything I want for my build, but getting tired of looking at it.

@ConanTheStoner: Awww I see it now. I played quite a bit of it on PS4. Thinking about finishing it on PS5. Yea your right about the graphics, it always looked like a PS3 game.

I really loved the first one but felt the Second one played a little to similar.

@hardwenzen:

Yeah that definitely stuck out to me.

See it's not just how bad the texture (texel density) is, but it even has that seam ripping down the length of the object. That's some shit you'd have from back in the day when Photoshop was the primary texturing program. Not something you should ever see with modern texturing software.

It's an oddly inconsistent looking game like that.

Gotta say, kind of loved this DLC. Turns you in the Rocketeer, and you basically fly up until you are in the heavens to destroy a Star Destroyer anyway you see fit. Real sense of scale to it as well my shitty pictures don't really do justice too.

@navyguy21: It certainly does suffer the the Ubisoft copy-paste syndrome. But unlike those games, and similar to Saints Row, it puts "fun first" where it can largely overcomes repetition in short bursts.

It's a good game if you're busy with heavy stuff as well. Like, if you've been studying for 8 odd hours, I don't really wanna play something demanding. Just Cause scratches that itch. Can just jump in and have a blast, then immediately fuckoff.

Some Division 2, AC Odyssey, Horizon Zero Dawn and DOA 6. Don't know why it says 62 fps for AC when I got it capped at 30.

My son and I have been playing Sea of Thieves. It's fun when you have someone to play co-op with, not so much alone.

I am somewhat disappointed that it doesn't allow me to live out my Peggy the Pirate or Blind Beard fantasies, but I'll take it.

Yea, I love the series and have played every entry (only a few hours into JC4 because it was broken at launch)

Like you said, it's pure mindless fun and I love it......especially the 'splosions lol

It's pretty neat, different if anything. Could see it being really fun for some local mp. Definitely early access af right now though, super slim on content/modes/features.

Really cool in motion.

Felt like trying out the System Shock demo after seeing Cup's screens. It's really cool. I've never really played the game before, so I think I'm getting this when it's out.

@ConanTheStoner: That did look interesting. Wonder how viable MP would be. As a premise though, more grounded realism, neat.

Some Divinity Original Sin: Enhanced Edition. Really good mod, sharpens up the textures without fucking the art direction.

Cool. I started playing but decided on finishing Origin. Now that Origin is done, I am wondering if I should finish Odyssey before jumping into Valhalla. 🤔
