Future Press explains why you should buy the official Bloodborne guide and talks about the benefits of preordering.
More like a great way to ruin the game for yourself.
No,not at all. I would never have found out how to enter the painted world or about the existence of another serpent in Dark Souls if I didn't use a guide. Game guides can be used to enrich the gaming experience too.
If you use a guide on your first play through, you do ruin the game. It's not like we have anything like castlevania 2's tornado to do in games anymore.
One of the few reasons I'd get the guide would be because of the guy working on the guide, youtuber named EpicNameBro ,who has done a tone of videos for Demon's Souls and Dark Souls, piecing together the lore left behind on various items and such. That and a hardcover with 400 pages, and a dynamic theme are also nice.
With videos and guides online do people buy these anymore? The last guide I bought was for GTA Vice City. Which was 13 years ago. My god am I getting old.
Nobody pay for guides anymore except for fanboys. There will be hundreds of YouTubers begging you to watch their vids.
No thanks, ill find death myself.
It's not really about having a book to tell you where to go and how to defeat enemies. I preordered the the collectors edition guide because of all the other features it has such as an in depth lore guide, lots of art work, bestiary with info on the monsters, an it has a gorgeous hard back cover with nice art design on it. I payed 20 dollars for it since it's on sale and it's 400 pages. That is a steal in my book for something like this. It also comes with a dynamic Bloodborne theme for your PS4. I refuse to look at it until I'm finished with the game. I agree that it would spoil the experience if you use it to find out how to go everywhere and do everything. I want to get lost in Yharnum myself and explore the horrors that await me. Sorry for the long reply lol.
This is simply flapping of the gums. Many many gamers had to figure out Demons Souls before the wiki existed and we guinea pigged the game the hard way, and it was actually a lot more fun that way. Yes it takes about ten times longer and tons of experiments, but its fun. No gamer ever "needs" a guide.
