Nioh 2 by Koei Tecmo is one of the most challenging games in the Souls-like genre, which is already known for its unrelenting difficulty. Nioh 2 does not appear to be unfair. It does, however, provide the gamer with an absurd number of possibilities. There are a plethora of weapon types to choose from, including swords, double swords, axes, twin hatchets, and switchglaives, as well as developing skill trees rich with skills to aid in the destruction of feudal Japan’s evil yokai. It follows the same trial-and-error formula of the Souls series, with players returning to a shrine after death and spending gold to level up, but it adds in the souls of other players to keep things interesting. They may be able to assist with tricky areas of face-off in a duel to the death with precious gear on the line, depending on the spirit.

Nioh 2 is a lighter game than its predecessor (and most hardcore action-RPG games), which helps to break up the brutally difficult periods. A monkey spirit is an important supporting character who occasionally mimics his dancing, and a Billy goat spirit speaks English but with a goat-like vocal fry. These people are valued and appreciated, especially given how stressful the game can be. (We also recommend that you play the original Nioh.)

PlayStation owners were unable to enjoy Remedy Entertainment’s previous major title, Quantum Break, but they have been handed something far superior with Control. The third-person shooter expands on Quantum Break’s blend of regular gunfights and superhuman abilities, but it’s situated in a far more fascinating setting — the titular Federal Bureau of Control.

In Control, it’s your mission as new director Jesse Faden to solve the mystery behind your brother’s abduction and combat the bizarre Hiss adversaries you encounter. This is easier said than done, but with the correct skills and understanding of the shape-shifting Service Weapon, you can save the world from inevitable destruction.
