This is an installment of my Nioh Challenge series in which I try to get through the Nioh storyline and see how many deaths it takes me.
Nioh Challenge Entry #8: Are the Crows an Ill Omen?
Now that I figured out what’s going on in my last entry, I think it’s time to make my way outta this tower.
I grab my Battle Axe since it seems to do the most damage, and I start bashing some guards…
It soon becomes apparent that I am completely lost in this tower. I keep going up and down stairs, running through rooms, and I seem to end back up either at the shrine or even worse – back at my jail cell.
While I love the artwork that’s gone into the tower design, I’m not seeing much to differentiate things enough that I can get my bearings…and I find myself back up in the loft where I heard Edward Kelley discussing plans to head to Japan. Perhaps I should have followed them earlier?
So I jump down…nope…been here before. Let’s run around in circles some more…
Eventually, I’m not really sure how I stumbled upon it, I found an archway to the outside.
Of course it’s raining – it’s London after all.
And there’s more guards to fight.
Too bad after I took out the first guard, two more showed up and were more than I could handle…
I died again, ending my streak of sessions without death.
At least I saw some of the crows.
Next time, now that I’ve figured the route to the outside, I can try to find my way outta this tower. This is not an easy game, but it is a fun one.
Death Count: 5
