It could end up being one of the best PlayStation 4 games in existence. But how many PS4 owners are passing on it simply because of the steep challenge?
No. I am looking forward to it. Prebought it the same day I picked up Dying Light. I loved Demon's Souls and I am (apparently) a masochist.
once the order is out and all is said and done get ready for an onslaught of articles on how bb is cheap and a niche souls ripoff that shouldnt exist.its baffling when i hear people say scholar of first sin will be better than bb or that they are souls fans but they do not even know who miyazaki is im not even a masochist but the souls games are probably the best thing to happen to AAA games since 2007 pure unadulterated gameplay above all, be it mediocre graphics or poor fps.nothing matters
Best of both worlds, though. The graphics on Bloodborne look stellar.
basically Bloodborn (and previous souls games) are not difficult they are normal...but between the Child friendly difficulty of all other games it seems hardcore...gamers nowdays (specially younger audiences) are used to ridiculous easy difficulty games ..making the upcoming and recent games nearly unplayable and non interesting (see COD, RE6, etcetc)
Same here what is with all the crap articles on N4G lately.Nevermind its N4G that is a everyday occurrence
I love challenging games like these. Its like the creators of this game are saying: I bet you cant beat this game and they dare me by trying to say you cant beat it. Oh you think I cant beat it? Oh you think Im not good enough, i will show you! thats what goes through my head when i play games like these.I accept the challenges because they try to say im not good enough to do them, and I try to prove myself, even if its just for me I still feel a lot of satisfaction.
I'll only be disappointed if it's too easy. I've never understood. If they are worried, make an easy playthrough. But for the souls or normal difficulty, you get the plat, and the true experience.mayne an added boss or two. Then ppl can try it on easy and work their way to its intended difficulty. It's better than giving us items to make it harder on ourselves, or join a group.
It does for me personally. I'm not the most skilled player so it gets frustrating seeing the same bits over & over again. The game looks amazing though for sure...has there been any word on whether or not they'll be an easier difficulty setting & whether or not an 'easy' setting on a game like this is anything approaching actual ease?
No, it turns me on
Exactly. That's why I love Souls series so much. Because of challenging difficulty that sometimes raises my blood pressure and makes me swear uncontrollably and makes me throw up my controller around. Love that. Such a great stress reliever. I really hope Bloodborne will have challenging difficulty.
I'll have to play it first.
These games are not as hard as people claim. You end up scaring people off with the exaggeration. The difficulty will probably be similar to demons/dark. . just use your head, period.
Nope, that will get you killed if you think that. No shields and I haven't heard anything about magic. So its a new ball game, an with that new idea they added. Its going to be a death trap.
No, as a matter of fact it makes me all hot and bothered! Now I have to sit in a tub of cold water and ice cubes. The harder the game is, the more I'll have to use strategy to beat it. Which is fine by me.
The first time I played Dark Souls I was awful. Then i learned some patience and it became a heck of a lot easier. With bloodeborne being more about quick attacking I am ready for the different challenges it will bring.
I didn't finish dark souls 2 as it got too frustrating. I think this will suit my more aggressive playstyle though
Dark Souls 2 was by far the easiest souls game, while Demon's Souls was by far the hardest. Fromsoft said that this will be harder than Demon's Souls so I hope you're ready.
I reckon I am. I just want to like this, so I will probably finish this whatever it takes. I just wasnt feeling it with Dark Souls 2 so I didnt hav the patience to finish it
This is kind of funny because I remember an article the other day saying that Bloodborne seemed easier then any other game in the Soul series based on a beta (yep,a beta)and it might turn people off because of it. Make up your mind people. Will it lose sales because it's too hard or too easy?
Bring it, I max out on Demon's Souls and Dark Souls 1 (saving 2 for PS4). Besides, easy games are boring.
If it's too hard I won't play it. I don't like re-playing the same part and I already have a very low RPG IQ.
I got the platinum in Demon's Souls, and it's one of my favorite games ever. A true throwback to challenging games with no holding your hand. All the previews and "journalists" saying it was too hard, made me want it even more. So glad I was able to get the collectors edition. And this continued talk of whether the game is too hard or not is oat bran dry by now. Let us have this one hard game, amongst a thousand others with checkpoints every 5 steps forward. So to answer the question, no.
It may turn me off if there isn't a casual setting.I steered clear away from all 3 souls game due to the extreme difficulty.I just don't have the patience or tolerence to be stuck in a game because of a difficult boss,enemy or some type of obstacle whatever it may be from getting me further in the game.I love hack n slash games & the creepy setting & design in Bloodborne makes me extremely interested in this game but if there aren't any difficulty settings then I'll just have to past.
Thing is, if Miyazaki strayed away from his original vision, if he made this game more accessible, then we won't have a Dark Souls successor. We would have a completely new experience, a completely different game. And I can't say for certain how THAT is gonna sell considering hardcore DeSo and DaSo fans will be the ones alienated and shooed by such a game. Bottom line is, this game is not about the difficulty as much as the original vision Miyazaki has embedded in it. Like what he said himself: He never intended for his recent projects to be difficult - only masterful.
You can keep the challenge and still make it accessible, there is a balance that devs just don't like to find. He has also said it multiple times that it is longer and hard than Demon's Souls, nothing about being "more accessible". Demon's Souls was a master piece that really looks like they are aiming for in this game.
Nope. It turns me on. And any lady near me will feel the consequences!!
Yeah a little bit, In Dark/Demon Souls I was always a bit of a sword and shield man. I most enjoyed the block-counter tactic. But no defense in Bloodborne puts me off a little.
Turn me off? Hell no! Video games became vastly popular when they were all difficult like this. Games today aren't defeated or conquered. They're 'completed'. Meaning all one must do is put in the time, and you finish the game like reading a book or watching a film. There is no more difficulty separating the men from the boys.
Lol no. Only people who can't handle a challenge and want their hand to be held in a lot of games nowadays will be turned off.
If anything was going to turn me off to this game it would be the control scheme but I'm sure I can adapt so I'll be fine.
