Bloodborne's New Game Plus mode has lead to the developers having trouble beating the game. What hope do you have if even the creators can't beat it? Do you want Bloodborne to be tough as nails or will you be put off it it's too difficult?
I have absolutely no chance whatsoever but I'll try! I had teeth marks in my controller after beating TLOUR on Grounded, so I'll probably end up with nothing but a frayed cord by the end of this.
Sensationlist title much? Article title insists game cannot be beaten by mere mortals... Yet its only a special option of the game that the devs are finding hard. The actual normal option of the game itself which im sure most people will start off with can be beaten..not gona be easy though
"im sure most people will start off" You can't start New Game+ with out beating New Game so everyone will start off on normal mode, just like all the other Soul games
@hells I wouldnt know this is gona be my first taste of the souls series
@Ballsack: It's actually a good thing you haven't played a Souls game before. If you try to play this game in the same way you'll get brutalised. This may share some elements with the Souls serious--and clearly the team are using that to promote it--but it's actually a new IP with a different approach. Think Souls plus Devil May Cry meets Resident Evil.
bring it on! i'm ready.. so excited!! i hope this game catches me so i can go for the plat.
Fair enough dude, you should try Dark Souls 2 when it's out on the PS4, the others are great games also but DS2 in 1080p etc, awesome
There will be ppl that beat it before the devs. Ppl have beaten souls games on ng++++. I beat DS on ng++, and while it's hard, it isn't impossible of you set yourself up right, take your time, and learn. Yeah, according to other games, it's hard for sure, but I've had many more difficult experiences in gaming.
@gribble Im looking forward to trying this,thanks for the info
Well, I'd better grab an extra controller or two. I have a feeling I'm gonna break a couple. No but honestly I'm looking forward to the challenge. Not many games this big are an actual challenge, so when a From Software game comes I get a little bit giddy. Amazing devs.
i am no mere mortals... i am god of war! OT: seriously though... i've already pre-ordered this game off PSN. i wonder when the game will start downloading. i'm going to find it little awkward running around the same victorian settings after Order. still.. already excited! Balsack.. if this is your first time in soul series... oh god forgive your anger in advance. and i hope you're blessed with lot's of patience. lot's.
I've beat Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, and Dark Souls 2 countless times on the same character (ng++++ etc.), so I'm ready to do the same in Bloodborne. Also, the Souls games really take off after your first playthrough imo because that's when you can dig into maximizing your character and weapon development, as well as figuring out more secrets you may have missed on your first (few) playthroughs, and I expect Bloodborne to be the same way. Can't wait!
Lol. . .forms a seasoned vet. . . Help me bro
@ Why o why Will do haha, just add me on PSN :-P
A man platinumed Demon's Souls but TLoU on Grounded was much harder. Demon's Souls only took longer because of the lack of checkpoints. That doesn't make the game harder it just makes you do the easy parts again and again.
Agreed. Granted, Demon's Souls was the one I didn't platinum (Dark Souls I and II, yes) but I still think Grounded was harder. I still shudder thinking about the hospital. About the article though, it's talking about NG+, people who haven't read. What hope do I have? I AM the hope in the hearts of the helpless! I'll be alright.
TLOU Grounded is tough, but still not as tough as a FromSoftware game. I beat grounded moded 4 times already--only one of those times was it a new game +
whats the point in making a game that you cannot beat?, i understand make it difficult, but to say gamers have no hope in beating the game kinda defeats the purpose of a game
Don't underestimate gamers! Trust me, there will be some unbelievable story with days of release of how some kid beat the game on the hardest difficulty with taking no damage and playing with his feet. There are some incredibly talented gamers out there. This mode is for fun and giggles, in a sado-masochistic way.
It's talking about New Game+, you have to beat the game to even start NG+ so yeah the game can and will be beaten............ by me infact, I normally go to NG+++ anyway, you normally need to so you can get the platinum trophy
This is NG+. A normal playthrough will be challenging but a NG+ playthrough will be brutal.
you do realize that a lot of devs openly admit not being good at their own games because they spend more time working on it than actually getting to play it right? Just because they made it doesn't make them the best at it.
I imagine in games like this where tenths of a second longer animations will take the game from extremely hard to unfair, that the devs would have to have a good amount of time in playing the game.
its always someone find the way to do fast run of Souls' series. this game might not be different.
There are always a hand full of geniuses out there that will beat the game.
I've never been called a genius before, thanks I guess
I will bet you anything that this is to bolster the hardcore crowd and set them at ease.
Tell that to the guy who beat Dark Souls with a Guitar Hero controller
A man would like pics.
close enough https://www.youtube.com/wat... Also this video says a lot of a man's frustrations with the game. Hopefully they fix hit detection and checkpoints in Bloodborne (platinumed Demon's Souls so a man doesn't mind a challenge but checkpoints don't make it harder they just make it take longer and make you do the easy parts over and over). https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Don't forget that Destiny raids are meant to only be beatable with 6 players, and a few days ago somebody soloed one of them without even using his gun. People find ways around everything, this mode on Bloodborne isn't going to slow a lot of people down. lol
True, but he was at the last check point. He wouldn't have made it there without help.
I thought the article said he ran the entire thing solo without guns?
People get to NG 10+ in Dark Souls games. This will be no different.
Looking forward to seeing ManvsGame play this. And obviously playing it myself even if i suck.
Developers don't have to be good at games any more than jet engineers need to be ace pilots. I remember arguing with David Sirlin (Street Fighter 2 HD lead design) and he thought his word was absolute because he made the game, but it doesn't mean he can dictate anything about high level play (despite being a good tourny player). Nobody has that privilege. Anyway, point is, this article is stupid.
None whatsoever! And that's the point! Oh, and to die while trying. Many times. Maaaany many times!
Devs aren't necessarily better at their games
Very true words, a master swords smith is not considered a master swordsman. One creates the other wields.
Looking forward to trying to plat this.
I beat hard games on NES, Devil May Cry 3's hardest mode. This will be nothing, I'm more likely to die from edges at best.
Hope the title of this article is BS cause then id have to ask for my money back. Don't mind a hard game, but one the devs cant beat, that's crap.
You should be able to beat it, devs are just having a hard time with New Game Plus. I don't think people will have TOO much of a problem with normal
You do realize devs tend to be awful at their own games right? It's a common trend that developers are nowhere near as good as the fans are. Otherwise League and CS tournaments would just be the dev teams
most devs suck at playing video games.
Well that seems like a challenge I accept. We shall see dear devs
do I see a difficult challenge. If so challenge accepted.
I already pre ordered the game and it will be released on the 17th with free shirt. So excited for this game.
When in the world devs play games? Look at Unity disaster, anyway being a dev doesn't mean you are a good player, most of them are noobs when it comes to game-play or this article is just a trap to make you purchase the game to prove how good you are.
Is there an easy/casual mode? Im not really into really hard games anymore but I really like the environments and settings of this game so would like to try it.
yeah there is there talking about the hardest difficulty. dont worry there will even be an easy mode
Are you the real FPSRUSSIA?
Lolz challenge accepted. i can play this game all year long
WTF IS THIS SHIT! MISSLEADING TITLE
This is nothing. I beat NES Ninja Gaiden with a blindfold on, a squirrel biting my feet and a fever of a hundred and 3. I guess I'm......Hot Blooded!!! Looking forward to this game!!!!!
This will not be a mainstream game due to this. It will be a niche title.
It will still sell well though.
The Souls games are already niche. The bright side is that niche is about 3 million people.
Just because they develop the game, does not mean they are that good at playing.
Yep. As weird as that is, it's with that with most devs. They see people on Youtube play their game and can't believe how amazing people get at it.
Hopefully this game starts offering demon's souls level challenges again.
This game isn't hardcore until it has permadeath.
Title sounds like a lame attempt to try and put people off the game, looks like the same propaganda that plagued The Order has started already. Get ready for the fake undeserved low review scores from the xbox fanboy reviewers.
Even if you design a car, that doesn't mean you should become a nascar driver.
Such a misleading article header. Gamepresso is the new Dualshockers and HipHopgamer. The article doesn't state they cannot beat it. If you click on the News link it takes you to an overview of their news... Blacklisted this website for posting their 3rd consecutive hopeless article in the span of a week.
Not quite sure we're on the same wavelength here. First of all, the article does state that the developers are having trouble beating their game in New Game Plus. Secondly, if you click on the link it takes you to the full article, not an overview of our news. Maybe take some more time to consider your thoughts before commenting next time.
Pathetic journalism buddy. I clicked the news link and it took me to an overview feed of all your news. I screenshot it as well for your liking. Also the title says "If Bloodborne’s devs can’t beat the game, what hope do you have?" The title does NOT state that they cannot beat New Game Plus, but the game itself. That's a misleading title headline to garner clicks. Read all the other comments. Maybe take some time to reconsider yourself about writing because you and the site you write for seem to be spamming useless content lately. Like I said blacklisted after this article misleading.
In response to your recent comment, I couldn't tell you why the link is taking you to an overview of our news, because for me and everyone else it goes to this specific article. As for the title, titles are meant to be short and snappy. Titles are the most important element of an article - of course we want to bring attention to our site and our articles - the same can be said for every publication in existence. I can see where you're coming from, but like I said, titles are supposed to be attractive and ultimately, as long as the main post mentions that the game cannot be beat in New Game Plus, there is really nothing to fuss about. Unfortunately you can't fit every detail of an article in a title - that's just the way it is. As for spamming useless content, I have to say I highly disagree. What evidence of "useless content" do you have?
