So gave Nioh a try, heh, yes, really, no, it's not the game for me, it never was going to be the game for me, but still free demo you know?
So, no, it was never going to succeed, but I didn't see the idiocy of the tutorial section coming. It starts off fine then you get asked to do this Ki pulse technique, it says press R1 but that's all. You press R1, nothing happens, you try a few more times, do it by sheer luck. Then you get told to do a Maximum Ki Pulse with little explanation. Screw that for a lark I had better things to do. (Did look it up and you have to press it at the right moment as your stamina bar fills up, so looking where the game doesn't tell you to - a lying tutorial? That's all I need.)
Even before that it was clear it wasn't for me, due to the fiddley-ness of some mechanics - anyone who enjoyed Ninja Gaiden / Demons/Dark Souls or Bloodborne should probably give it a look.
So got back to this instead:
Dragon Age: Inquisition
Only did a couple of small quests to get back into the habit, but there's some really nice touches to the game and the world design remains excellent.
What was a pleasant surprise is I talked to Varric, got an invite to a card game and things went off from there. It was entirely incidental to the plot but a very smart and fun sequence.
Oh, the quests? My gang slaughtered everything that came against us, it was a glorious battle.
