Because of her (Anna Torv)
I really like her
now I'm not sure if she's the reason I like Heavenly Sword and Nariko so much or if it's the other way around
when I first saw heavenly sword, it was a behind the scenes video with Anna Torv )
even before she was announced I knew Nariko was gonna be my main (provided she made it in of course)
and it's funny because Nariko's not even my favorite character (Kratos, Kat, Ratchet, Sly, Cole, then Nariko)
although I can't resist making Kat my main once she's in, but I digress.
anyways, yeah both Nariko and Anna kicks major @ss (still **bleep** they couldn't get her to voice Nariko in this game though)
PS: Fringe is freaking beyond awesome
I main Nariko because she is an amazing character. I loved her in Heavenly Sword and SB nailed her in PASBR.
I also think Nariko and Kratos would make a pretty good couple. But that's another story...
Hold your horses...
WHAT IS THIS!?
Heavenly Sword was a great game and I like Nariko in this a lot as well except I really need to learn son reliable combos with her (as in combos that I can land completely without them getting dodged if it has a key stance). I'm working on getting better with her.
Yeah I know her air game is great but I'm looking for a few set-ups do deal a bit of ground damage then get them in the air to deal as mush damage as possible. I have like 1 that works right now, but I still hesitate to use her in FFA as someone always stops you from doing your whole combo. Also I have not done it much but people who are good with her use the shield toss a lot I noticed.
I use the shield and canon as decoys to catch my opponent off guard so I can initiate my ground to air combos
