Edge via twitter: We deliver our Bloodborne verdict In the new issue, out tomorrow.
8-9. but then again edge is notorious of giving out low scores
I say 8-9 too. I sense great things for this :)
I would say 7-8 when we are speaking about Edge's score.
Perfect 10 is what it will get
actually, i noticed edge has always given souls games really high scores
From the Edge 'verdict': "If you've been watching this generation from the sidelines, unmoved by remasters and rush jobs while you wait for the first true essential to arrive, now's the time." There you have it folks. Greatness is finally here. :)
Thank you septic. Bubble for you my good sir, :)
bloodborne will get a 9 or 10, guaranteed. then all the conspiracy over rating sony games low will vanish until the next game that gets average to low scores. another reason for the numeric system to go away.
the only difference with BloodBorn is that it checks the boxes and follows the rules of the gaming media I'v had a great time with my PS4 ever since Knack...yes Knack! also.. inFAMOUSss, Transistor, GuiltyGear Xrd, DrivClub, PT, the Order1886
Wait so its just an impression. Well, it is kinda early to start doing reviews.
7-8 from Edge is my estimate. 5-7 from Polygon. Average 8-9. Really have high hopes for this game. It might finally convince me to purchase a PS4.
Some remarks have already been leaked: *Playthrough did not involve Chalice Dungeon or multiplayer. *This is not an official review/no score, despite the cover of the game saying "THE VERDICT" *"Bloodborne is Hidetaka Miyazaki's brutal riposte to the section of his playerbase that thinks it has seen it all before." *Merchant sells a clip-on lantern (hello Demon's Souls augite) *"Yharnam spends the game in the grip of a perpetual night...that can only be brought to an end by the player finding and finishing off the source of the scourge of beasts." (this could be referring short term like...defeat a major boss, get some daytime, or overall, I guess) *Description on the first shield they found: Shields are nice, but not if they engender passivity. *Some enemies in the game can use spells *Confirmed Bloodtinge stat governs bullet damage *Transforming strikes and their follow-up attacks give you a way of reaching enemies that in other Souls games might be out of reach because they were pushed back by your earlier attacks - they say stamina management is a more diverse process in Bloodborne than in the earlier games *Bloodstone shards = titanite, coldblood = portable souls, most common items are blood vials (healing) and quicksilver bullets, but stocks can grow low later in the game *Surplus items are automatically sent to a storage box, and if you die your items are replenished from the box automatically *They say your starting stats are dictated by the trick weapon you choose, which runs counter to the origins shown in the character creator... *Enemies only drop upgrade mats and items *Very few chests, almost all have something good inside *Clothes found in the world or from a merchant whose catalog expands when you defeat bosses *Only found 6 or so weapons and 6 or so guns in 40 hours *Bloodgems are an upgrade item that allows you to change the attributes of a weapon, ex. increasing physical attack power, adding poison damage, or increasing scaling - all the weapons in the game are customizable with bloodgems *"Discrete areas flow together to create a believable world" - separating the hub from the main gameworld allows the world itself to be more coherent *They say in Souls you are frequently scared of dying, but in Bloodborne you are also scared of what is coming to kill you - "There is a moment in Dark Souls that we will never forget: down in the Depths, picking up an item from a corpse and a slime dropping onto our head. We spent the rest of the level panning the camera endlessly for unseen threats, no longer scared of dying, but of moving. Imagine a whole game of that." - For this reason they think taking the replayability factor to CD makes more sense. *Torch may be very important for newcomers/first playthroughs *There is a new mechanic they are not allowed to discuss *"If you thought From Software was going soft, Hidetaka Miyazaki is about to put you brutally back in your place. And if you've been watching this generation from the sidelines, unmoved by the remasters and rush jobs while you wait for the first true essential to arrive, now's the time. As if there was ever any doubt, Miyazaki and his team have done it all over again."
Never played any of the souls games... Difficulty did put me off a bit if im brutally honest But this game im getting day one,after reading its still hard but the combat is alot nicer Cant wait to try
/\/\/\ It depends on how you view difficulty. If you are a twitch/panicky person then souls game will be hard. In all honesty it is a fair game if you are patient and keep your cool. I have seen my cousin play DS and he dies a lot because he panics and is use to rushing through games. In a lot of way he is already defeated in him mind before he even tries because he have it in his mind that it is too hard. Any new and menacing foe makes things worse. DS still remains one of the best games last gen and of the best in many years. You should really try them out.
"8-9. but then again edge is notorious of giving out low scores" Edge have given a few perfect scores to Sony Exclusives. The Last of Us, Uncharted, Little Big Planet...
They deserve those scores. Check other sites for those games as well.
and gran turismo not uncharted
Rightfully so, more times than not.
It will be an 8 or 9 game but Edge being Edge will score it a 6 or 7, because you know, Edge is edgy.
Did u know almost 50% of Britishers gave an accent of a old hag.
I can't believe I'm so close to finally owning a PS4, THIS is the game I've been waiting for, then next month Dark Souls 2+ then in May (birthday month) Witcher 3 RPG heaven, hmmmmm, Heavensvacancy, could it be?
what have you been waiting for? PS4 is amazing : )
Er Bloodborne :)
Get Infamous for cheap. Driveclub is amazing, dont listen to what anyone says, I did and got in last month, THEY ARE WRONG!!
I'm expecting a 8 or 9. I have really hight hopes for this game. Souls games usually rate high and this games looks to improve on those.
What a great cover! Dayum!
