The Nioh Collection Review – Smooth Suffering

By tracy

The Nioh games are deliberately difficult uphill battles against all manner of demonic foes. As you slaughter your way through each level, the experiences boast serious loot customization and build variety, tons of content to grind and conquer, and opportunities to take on big bosses with friends. Oh, and there are many deaths to be had as well, as the Nioh games are brutal without remorse. The tough-as-nails samurai slashers are now available as a remastered double feature with the PlayStation 5’s Nioh Collection.

This is a great time to dive into the franchise if you’ve been putting it off for any reason, as the package includes remastered versions of both Nioh and Nioh 2, plus their associated DLC and add-ons. While I’d be hard pressed to recommend going back to the original Nioh when Nioh 2 is essentially a much more refined take on that experience, it’s a bonus history lesson if you’re hungry for more (though you can also purchase these remasters individually).

Gaming laptops are, all too often, an exercise in frustrating compromises. Do you want a thin and light model that sacrifices in power, or struggles with heat? Or do you want a thick beast of a laptop that can handle the latest titles for 30 minutes before the battery dies? Asus’ ROG Flow X13 aims to give you both power and portability, without making huge sacrifices: you get a lightweight 2-in-1 touch screen laptop with midrange graphics for basic usage, and a compact external GPU for more top-tier gaming on-the-go.It’s far from the first laptop we’ve seen that relies on an external box, but since Asus’ XG Mobile eGPU uses the mobile version of Nvidia’s RTX 3080, it’s incredibly compact, meaning you can bring it with you when you want it – or leave it at home when you don’t. I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that, despite its high price tag of $3,000, it’s one of the most exciting gaming laptops I’ve seen in a while.
