Nioh Celebrates 1 Million in Sales With Golden Armor

Nioh has taken the Dark Souls and Ninja Gaiden formulas, thrown them into a blender and come out with a rather difficult, but popular, game. It is so popular in fact that the game has hit the one million sales figure less than a month after launch.

Koei Tecmo revealed the numbers in a press release (via Siliconera), and promptly agreed to celebrate with the release of a special gift for fans. The Golden Nioh Armor will be part of a 1.04 update today, and the company said it will be extending the early purchase program for the game, which grants the Crimson Master Armor, until March 1.

Nioh has proven particularly difficult for many players, but that hasn’t stopped one die-hard expert Distortion2 from completing the game in a then-record 96+ minutes, despite dying six times. He has since shaved that down to 85 minutes.

New Prey Trailer Shows Players the Endless Amounts of the Mimic Ability

Bethesda has released a new trailer for Arkane Studios upcoming game, Prey. The trailer focuses on one of the main abilities in the game, which is called mimic.

In Prey, you will be able to transform into over 400 items. Mimics will allow players to find alternative paths, different gameplay techniques and much more

Check out the Mimic Madness down below:

“Mimic is a really fun power with a lot of uses,” says Lead Designer Ricardo Bare. “The most obvious is stealth. It’s a great way to hide from an alien that might be too strong for you. Or, you can get the drop on an alien by ambushing them. It’s also a really good way to access a closed-off area. Maybe there’s a security booth that you don’t have the key to – you could mimic something small enough to slip through a security slot.”

When you reach Level 2 of Mimic Matter, you can take the form of more complex objects like turrets. “You not only look like a turret but you can fire like a turret,” says Lead Systems Designer Seth Shain. “If you’re running low on ammo, it’s a really useful way to take down enemies.” And as you further advance this ability, you’ll eventually be able to mimic Operator robots and fly through Talos I with different robotic tools and weapons.

Arkane Studios is taking Prey to the next level with giving players almost unlimited amount of freedom on how they wish to play the game. Take out an enemy while mimicking a turret? Want to enter a room that’s locked, but might be able to fit in it if mimicked correctly? The choices are endless. Watch 15 minutes of gameplay from the upcoming title right here. 

Prey is scheduled to release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on May 5.

Check Out The First Castlevania Netflix Poster

We’ve seen our fair share of bad takes on movie adaptations from popular video game franchises, but now there seems to be a movement in turning these video game franchises into television shows. There have been announcements in the past of a Life is Strange television series along with a new upcoming Mega Man cartoon.

There was also news of an animated Castlevania television series that would be released on Netflix. We’re not too sure about what to expect in the upcoming series, but with a release slated for some time this year, more news about the show will likely be unveiled soon. Today, however, we’re finding out about the first poster art to release for the upcoming Netflix show.

The poster showcases a mature tone with a giant gothic castle and plenty of swarming bats, similar to the original Castlevania video game.

According to the press release on the Netflix press website, we know that the animated series will follow the last surviving member of the Belmont clan as he attempts to save Eastern Europe from extinction.

Interestingly enough, Netflix’s press media center does state that the first season will showcase the first part, which means we could see a defined ending rather than an on-going series. Regardless, we’ll have to keep an eye out for future announcements regarding the upcoming series. Let us know if you plan on watching the series when it launches later this year by leaving us a comment down below.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Is the Most Successful Fan Funded Game Since 2015

Obsidian Entertainment’s Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire has reached the $ 4M USD mark on www.Fig.com making it the most successfully funded video game on the platform, and the first game to cross the $ 4M threshold since 2015. In addition, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is the most successful video game to take advantage of Reg A+ (investing in Fig Game Shares – Pillars of Eternity 2, Fig Publishing Inc.)

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is inspired by classic titles such as Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn, Icewind Dale, and Planetscape: Torment, the game improves upon the already rich narrative, beautiful environments, and intricate, tactical combat that made the original a critical sensation. With Deadfire, Obsidian will take players on another amazing journey to the world of Eora, this time to the vast and uncharted Deadfire Archipelago, where they will fight for their very souls as they hunt down a god.

The game was funded to an impressive 400% of its goal on Fig with 33,614 backers who pledged towards the campaign. The campaign is currently closed, but you can still pledge through PayPal if you would like to do so. For those waiting to pay by PayPal, the Backer Portal is now live at eternity.obsidian.net/backer.

Resident Evil 7 Not A Hero DLC Brings Back Chris Redfield

We knew that the free Not a Hero DLC was coming for Resident Evil 7, but we didn’t know much about it. Capcom has let the “hero” out of the bag now, revealing that Chris Redfield will be coming back to the game.

Note that spoilers are ahead if you haven’t already finished RE7.

The tweet is indeed a teaser for the story-based DLC. At the conclusion of the game you find Redfield is working for Umbrella Corp., but the hint seems to be that this weird combo of Redfield and his job could deal with him pursuing a person or a creature. An upcoming CGI movie in Japan called Biohazard: Vendetta reunites Chris, Leon Kennedy, and Rebecca Chambers. The plot has Chris chasing an individual who is trying to release something called The Trigger Virus in New York City. The film is supposed to be a story bridge between RE6 and RE7, so perhaps the DLC let’s the player actually pursue the madman. 

Unfortunately, Capcom still isn’t divulging the release date for Not a Hero, other than the always nebulous “this Spring.”

Pokemon Go: Sprint Launches a Trainer Reward Program

Sprint has announced a trainer reward program for those who check in a Sprint locations. This means that players can get rewards when checking in those Sprint locations that act as PokeStops.

The company has rolled out this program over at MyTrainerRewards.com, and although the full spectrum of what the program has to offer is not yet clear, there are details that are bound to get people curious about it.

The program, which is officially called the Sprint and Boost Mobile Trainer Rewards program, will offer up prizes to those players who regularly use Sprint locations or look into Sprint products.

Players can earn free Trainer Reward points through completing Trainer activities with Sprint. At the moment, the prizes are unique Pokemon Go tips from Professor Willow, but it seems like the plan is to eventually offer things like exclusive wallpapers and gift cards through trainer reward points.

The activities that earn points are varied as well, ranging from simply looking for the nearest Sprint PokeStop or Gym to catching a Pokemon at a Sprint location, with both activities earning 25 points. There are also several Pokemon Go videos that will earn viewers points by watching until the end.

However, many more of the Sprint, particularly given that Pokemon Go has once again become popular, climbing to the top of the Apple App Store after its recent Gen 2 update. It’s unclear how many users are going to sign up for this program, and its success will probably depend on how enticing the rewards are versus how intrusive non Pokemon Go activities are to players.
