I've been trying to up my Nariko game recently... It's tough, because she really is low tier/predictable. Still, I loved Heavenly Sword and ever since I found out Olivia from Fringe is Nariko's voice actress/motion capture I had to use her more.
Any tips from any Nariko users? --- "May the glistening chrome of the Borg Queen shed her light upon us all" "Remember when you eat, you're just a vacuum with nipples."
