Hello again internet friendos! How do you do this Thursday evening? Me? I’ve been dealing with work and still adjusting to the hours I take. I also started the Nioh Beta recently. To access the new stuff you have to beat the first stage from the alpha, but there are some improvements in the beta for newer players, such as a tutorial. They also got rid of the weapon degradation which I mostly didn’t notice much in the Alpha since I’d switch to better weapons so often.

They added familiarity to weapons which wasn’t functional last time, but basically each weapon has a meter that rises with use. as it fills up you earn skill points and eventually max out the bar which will then increase the damage and sometimes skills on the weapon itself. ( Basically you’ve mastered the weapon.) They also added Dual Katanas which are quite fun, but use up ki fast.

This brings me to the topic tonight which is : Future releases and demos. Currently we have the Nioh Beta, soon will be the return of the revamped Titanfall 2 test, Battlefield 1 beta, For Honor, and I’m sure some more. besides those, which releases in the next few months are you excited for? Are there games who are currently in release ambiguity? (*cough* Cuphead and Gang Beasts *cough*) Let Us know!

Tonight’s jam:

FREE PLAY: Give me your suggestions for a Thursday night , and I’ll make them into a mix for next time!
