Oh I didn't know there was a new demo. If it has better gameplay than your average Souls game then it might catch my attention. I mean, is Team Ninja, even at its worst the games have some interesting gameplay on it, but the little I saw of Nioh looked so "Soulslike
" that I dismissed it immediately =/
Might try the demo then.

This is also true, however at this point I'd say the action market is already on shambles. DMC nowhere to be seen, GoW on the road to become an epic, cinematic movie (they don't even try to hide it anymore lol), and Platinum games are mostly good, don't get me wrong, but I hate a lot of their "style", sometimes to the point they try too damn hard to be cool, and it bothers me that right now a lot of people think of that
kind of game when they think of action games.
Also they need to come up with new core mechanics. Adapting Bayonetta's dodge mechanic with a different flavor for the 7th in a row gets a bit boring.
