GAME UK partnered with Sony to have a lock-in, to play The Order:1886 and Bloodborne before release. Wololo.net blogger Minimur12 shares his impressions on both games.
don't know which one I'm more hyped for.....but, that's ok since I've preordered both!
the worst part is looking at the countdown on my ps4, pre-loading ftw!
If you're into the Souls genre then Bloodborne is a sure bet. The Order is great if you like watching movies and spectacle show piece games like Ryse.
uh, interactive media is INTERACTIVE, brah.
" The Order is great if you like watching movies..." I can't agree to this, sorry. In an MGS comments section, I'd still disagree with you. Lol.
Will BLoodbourne be that different from the Dark Souls series? Why do I feel like I already played Bloodbounre twice already though? The Order 1886, now that's a games that looing to deliver a fresh experience. IMO obviously.
Are you expecting Bloodborne to be an open world third person shooter with sci-fi elements or something?
Really The Order to you looks like a fresh experience? I have to disagree with your opinion but Bloodborne looks like the better experience. A Horror third person action game with Souls gameplay and added weapons like shotguns and shields plus multiplayer and the procedurally generated dungeons found in Chalice. I would be more hype for that game than anything The Order has to offer. Right now The Order looks good but it's only looking like a graphics bonanza and nothing more.
Bloodborne is not just a horror themed Dark souls ( even if it was I would buy it twice). They changed and added a lot of things.
I'll be ordering in an extra helping of crow for you then Gangsta_red, because based on the impressions leaking out of early copies, The Order: 1886 has the same hallmarks that made The Last of Us a great game. And yeah... fresh. What other game in this industry have you seen tackle the concept shown in The Order at all, let alone with such conviction?
I like both RPG and TPS genres as long as they have great story+gameplay combo.
same and its been such a long time since xmas. i have order,bloodborne and dying light ordered and i was hoping to smash dying light before order but now its gonna go order then dying light and then march bloodborne. with a bit of borderlands
Definitely more hyped for bloodborne, then again, the souls series is my favorite series along with MGS. So that's a given. I've gotta say I'm glad the order is coming out first though. I can sink 20-30 hours into that, then move onto the beast that will be bloodborne. Dark souls 2 is hands down my least favorite game in the series, and I've still put 100 hours into it.
Sony is pushing the hype train for Order 1886 pretty hard. Bloodborne is still too far away.
It's called marketing dude.. All major games do this if they want to sell.
Just wait till Halo 5... that marketing campaign is going to redefine marketing.
I'm pretty sold on The Order (love Ready at Dawn)... I hate to admit I'm waiting for reviews just in case its a total mess #driveclub (bought it recently for half the price after all the patches and love it). I'm happy with solid 8's. About Bloodborne....everybody seems to love it. Then in Japan we have Dragon Quest Heroes too!...so intrigued.
But there is no online stuff in The Order so I think it's safe to say the game will work day one
paid both games off already
me too! I have witcher3 paid for too.....just playing the waiting game now!
Bloodborne for me. Giving the order a miss, not my type of game.
That's really intersting, I'm the other way round. I've pre-ordered The Order and can't wait for that game to drop. But for the life of me I can't see the appeal of Bloodbourne. I loved Demon Souls and Dark Souls, but I cant see what differentiates Bloodbourne from Dark Souls. I'm skipping Bloodbourne for The Witcher 3. But that's just me I guess :)
Well the appeal of BloodBourne for me is that it is more of the same "Darksoul" experience which is the type of game experience I really like and can't get enough of Open world, RPG elements etc. The order looks like more of the same linear, heavly scripted sort of game much like uncharted-ish type of game and those are the sort of games I don't enjoy as much. I try to keep an open mind and try different games but after a while you get a really good feel for exactly which sort of games you know your going to enjoy straight away and which you can live without if that makes sense. it's just my personal taste. I think Bloodborne will cary me over till The Witcher 3. the first half of this year is all about waiting it out for that game.
it's a game by one of the todays great game designers in miyazaki....after demon souls and dark souls1 you know he's going to bring an incredible game - how do you not buy??
Nice one. To be truly honest, I'm more hyped for The Witcher 3 than I am for The Order 1886, because I know I'm going to get so many more hours out of The Witcher 3, and so much more replay value. Not to say I won't replay The Order, I will... but you know it's really all about killing time until The Witcher 3 drops :))
The witcher 3 is my next gen game for this year... Everything else is have reservations about. I know there will be other good games, but if I am totally honest I have been left massively underwhelmed by this new Gen and I have lowered my expectations quite a lot by what these games can achieve.
Yeah, I'm super excited for The Order 1886, but The Witcher 3 has been pretty much my most anticipated game of this generation so far. It feels like the wait is taking forever.
I hear you. It's one of the reasons I'm hoping the Order will succeed. From all indications it is the first truly next-gen game that showcases what's possible this generation.
I hope they release a demo as well, I'd prefer to get the feel of the game myself. Than again, it's still going to be a single-player-only linear TPP game, which I usually don't buy (Uncharted being the only exception).
I don't know about a demo. It becasue of all the little demo's thathey allowed journos to play that they started getting bad press. Noe that people are playing the whole game a different story is emrging that the game is better than the demos would have you believe.
Both games look really good. I have no doubt they will be well worth the purchase price as both devs have excellent track records and these are both frontline Sony exclusives - they cannot afford to release mediocre games at this point, after a less than stellar 2014. This could be the start of a phenomenal year for Sony and us gamers.
I have Pre ordered both games and will get them day one without even caring to read the reviews as they no longer tells the true story anymore. Today's reviews is all about hate, who pay you to post bad or good scores, fanboyism and people reviewing a game that they can barely understand.
Getting both games stuff reviews, and stuff the haters.
I already paid for both
Gameflying the Order, buying Bloodborne probably.
Man i just spent $265 dollars... The Order 1886 Bloodborne The Witcher 3 MK X These should hold me off until August or something...
ugh. i always forget how expensive games are. i need a new hobby. haha ive got like 30 PS4 games already. :-(
I know the feeling I have 50 ps4 & x1 + over 300 ps3 & x360 games so far. My blu ray & dvd collection is even worse. The order & bloodborne are already paid for.
Same here, those four are already paid in full, just add Arkham Knight and I'm ok until fall.
How did i forget about Arkham Knight...This needs to be added.
This makes me very happy.
Nice to see a different gameplay demo of Bloodborne.
won't buy any of these before reviews from alternative sources. Order doesn't look like a game that has anything but graphic, Bloodborne... Darksouls went on mass production, and those jap guys can do "some optimisation"
2 awesome games, AAA titles o the way.
