Masaaki Yamagiwa, who is a producer on Bloodborne and works with Sony's Japan Studio, talked about the style of combat Bloodborne will feature and clarified the type of game it is.
Well whatever the hell it is, I want it badly. Bloodborne has appealed to me in a way the Souls games never did. I am not saying they weren't good games, they just weren't for me. But Bloodborne's gothic setting, classic horror-inspired enemies, and more offensive combat has me dying to play it
It's fucking sick. Everyone is going to FLIP when they play it, it looks insane in motion and plays great but different enough to set it apart from the Souls series!!
Hack and slash or not, this game looks unbelievable great. The gothic style and atmosphere are simply amazing. If the game will get rpg elements like a lvl up system, skills and so on i would be more happy since i love rpgs but anyway, even without this game will be a must have.
Of course it has RPG elements, it is an RPG... you'll collect blood which you'll spend on upgrading your skills & attributes and buying weapons & gear. It's classic Souls-gameplay with a few very interesting twists (like the Regain mechanic). I'm especially looking forward to the reveal of the online mode, I'm guessing it will somehow involve hunters & beasts.
Oh lord, the first reasonable comment i've read from you on this site, are you ok pornflakes ??
since when has anyone ever considered a souls-like game to be hack-n-slash???
Hack and Slash would be like Dynasty Warriors.
Devil May Cry & Bayonetta are also considered H&S
When I think of hack 'n' slash games God Of War is the first game that comes to mind
I hope not. The action RPG genre hasn't been producing very many quality games lately.
It's you die over and over again until it's time to smash controller into TV- kind of game. Can't wait.
Now im liking more what im seeing regarding framerate,the latest game videos seem to show a much more smooth gameplaY thEn the E3 and some right after E3 videos!
Obviously not a hack & slash game
Who thought it was a hack and slash game? Does it look like DMC or Ninja Gaiden? People are weeeeird O_o
