Leon got some hands on time with Bloodboure at EGX:
"Being a fan of both Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls, it was with Dark Souls 2 that I started to feel as though I was losing interest in the format. I was hooked with Demons’ Souls, and I enjoyed Dark Souls – but I’ve yet to progress much further than the first boss in Dark Souls 2, after realizing that I was playing it out of some feeling of necessity rather than because I actually wanted to play it. It became almost some sort of self-imposed chore that I wasn’t actually feeling any pleasure in doing.
So when Bloodborne was announced – a PS4 exclusive from Hidetaka Miyazaki, the director behind both Demon’s Souls and the original Dark Souls – I didn’t feel particularly excited. I’d played my share of the ‘Souls style games, and ugh, guns? It seemed like a step away from the medieval fantasy simulator I’d originally fell in love with, away from the armoured knights and classic dragons."
