As pretty much every relevant game in the past years, Bloodborne is already out in the wild, and early owners are starting to comment and post interesting stuff online.
Updated with more screenshots.
"Frame rate wise, its been a solid 30 fps so far"....kind of words i want to hear!! Can't wait to play it !!
Same here! Sweet stuff. Blighttown was just that. A blight on an otherwise stellar ass game! The way the previous games played, with movement timing being paramount for survival, even the slightest of frame hiccups resulted in a tragic death. So amped for this game!!! Screens looks sweet as hell too. I'm really looking forward to entering a fog, w/o knowing if the other side is more board, or a giant boss wielding a hammer or something. Its the anticipation and mental aspect of uncertainty which lends itself to the game's appeal. The Souls game, and presumably this game, are a an emotional ride ending with our brain's reward center being flooded with chemicals!! Drugs are bad.......From Software is good.....mmmmkaaaay!
"I'm really looking forward to entering a fog, w/o knowing if the other side is more board, or a giant boss wielding a hammer or something" Good luck with that :P In Bloodborne the fog appears behind you now once you've triggered a boss fight. In short, we're all screwed.
If that's true, that's the best news about Bloodborne I've heard, that's awesome. "Oh I wonder where the boss is, I guess I'll go over here and explore so I can be better prepar*hears loud crash behind me followed by a health bar appearing*....@%*&!!!" ;
Seriously, Bloodborne was already my most anticipated game this year, but every bit of info that releases on it is getting me so excited that I feel it will be nothing short of a masterpiece. Could easily become my GOTG so far, and perhaps even for quite a long while if not forever. Just a little over a week left... The wait is INSANE...
I was hooked on the original Demons Soul (beat it on New Game ++ mode). I cant wait to get into Bloodborne. Definitely another solid addition to the PS4 exclusive library this month along with HellDivers and MLB15 The Show.
did they hit 1080p?i know 30fps and 1080p was goal. cant wait for this game but im annoyed people have it so early.
Yes 1080p at 30fps.
thanks italian gamer,why have i got disagrees lol. i wish i had a virtual shotgun and it listed who disagreed with you.
"45 hours" Just like DkS1 and DkS2 and DS.
It took me quite longer to complete them.
"The game is too long and makes me feel fat " 3/10 -Gamespot
IGN - "As a Christian gamer, I found all the elements of the supernatural occult to be offensive, and the blood was ad nauseum." 4/10
IGN is more likely "Too much blood - 6/10" Edit: LOL I see someone already made this exact comment below.
I've always wondered why major sites like IGN conveniently ignore that Mature rating in such titles, engage sissy-tabloid scandal mode and focus where they need not too... Oh wait make a fuss out of nothing = more clicks. Big sites my ass..
Polygon - We were not able to play the game our console- 0\10 LOL
Bubble!!!!! Dude I'm at the bar and everyone just stared at me because I laughed loud and abruptly at that!
Dang it. - We were not able to play the game ON our console- That's what it should have said. Anyways thank you for the bubble. :)
Laughed out load on the train.....getting weird stares from people!
Nah man, Polygon would be more like. -We couldn't play the game on our console, but it wouldn't matter because we wouldn't want to anyway since this game reinforces Patriarchy and Homophobia. 10 "Big Red" STFU out of 10 https://www.youtube.com/wat...
So funny haha +bubs
+1 that was awesome @MasterCorn
DUDE, I have not laughed out loud at a comment on here for quite some time. That was hilarious. Funny bubble for you!
Hahahaha! I wouldn't be surprised to see some reviewers say that. We might even get a few "Its too hard!"
considering it's been said that it's his most challenging game to date, there's no doubt going to be some "it's too hard" complaints from reviewers.
Oh absolutely. Demons Souls had a few of those. Gaming is so diluted and weak nowadays that games are actually criticized for being difficult. How awful and backwards is that? Everyone has to be a winner? No they don't! Earn the victory!
Nah I doudt we will see too many of those due to their pride. Reviwers don't want their flock whom they make decisions for to lose faith in them as "true" gamers... They will never admit if it' too hard, they'll just find another way to say it sucks to save face lol.
Can't wait to get it :D , going to play it co-op !
You do know its not your typical , invite your friend and play the game from start to finish right?
Been reading so many impressions of this game and ive been hearing nothing but great things! Im going to spend so many hours mastering this game. I can't wait
Looks really great!!!!!! Greatness on March 24th&27 XD
"◦Some items can be used in a way similar to magic, and require silver bullets per use". Nice. Looks like it will add some extra variety to gameplay.
People also have to remember that these are people playing over 40+ hours without the Chalice Dungeon and PVP yet. This game is going to be amazing.
Preordered just waiting to preload on sunday. I live on the the west coast so 9pm monday night for me.
Really? We don't have to wait until midnight pacific time? Excellent. Since I'm going on a 4 day business trip starting the morning of 3/24, I need all the time I can get with the game.
i'd like to know where in the world these people are getting their games to be able to get them so early.
IGN: "Too much Blood"
I've never played a souls game, (unless you count soul edge, soul blade and soul caliber). I'm pretty keen to get this but I think I might be in over my head
No. You are not over your head. It's the best learning experience ever. And while you may get frustrated, you will love it. And you will want everything to be this way. Just take it slow at first, learn the mechanics, and you will be fine. Don't rush through it. And join the community. Thats the best part. Read what others have done and tried etc. A 1st blind playthrough may be fun, but definitely get on gamefaqs, reddit etc. And since you havnt played any other Soul's games, you are in for a treat. In a way, I wish I could have that 1st experience over again.
joab, if this game can even give me half of the experience/rewarding feeling of my first play of demon souls - i'll be thrilled. I think bloodborne is going to be awesome! I hate to keep saying it....but, damn, I can't help myself - I hope miyazaki/sony japan takes us back to boletaria again at some point.
@bathyj I would shareplay and try it first if possible. The series really is a love / hate relationship. I played dark souls and found myself spending alot of time reading tactics and watching videos and dying, slowing my flow to a crawl and i shelved the game after getting thru blighttown.
It depends on what type of games you like. When I first started playing Demon Souls, I was in love.
The games are decent but they are not amazing like everybody is preaching the combat is slow and tedious and clunky that's what makes the game so hard cause you have to time your swings, which is a cheap tatic but alot of people love it so good for them...
"which is a cheap tatic" I don't see this as a cheap tactic. In real life a sword, axe, spear, or hammer are really heavy. It takes time and good stamina to use them. So yeah this game isn't for people who thinks they can slaughter hundreds or thousand of enemies in a couple of attacks and moves with supersonic speed. If you prefer that than you should just stick with Dynasty Warrior, God of War, DMC, or Bayonetta.
Just don't think you're Kratos. That's most people's problem with these games when they complain how hard they are. Yes, they're challenging. They're supposed to be. They're old school b design, and it's crazy to actually have to say that, but it's true. Almost every game today has regenerative health, basically unlimited ammo, and a checkpoint every 5 steps forward. The Souls games have none of that, but they're so engrossing in what they do. It's almost like a boxer's mentality. You stick and move, block, see an opening, and counterattack. You're always going to be well equipped, so long as you don't jump ahead in the world. You just have to read the enemies, and pay attention to your surroundings.
Exactly For short, this game isn't for gamers who loves regenerating health, checkpoint every 5 steps, hints every second of where to go or what must do, or story where everything already prepared in a silver plate. I'm glad though that some devs still have the balls on making games like Souls series / Bloodborne.
another epic exclusive
What are you guys smoking? http://www.youtube.com/watc... I just don't get the hype. Watch this direct feed. Combat and movement seem clunky and whole game looks like an early gen ps3 title.
yeah... no. when you post great gameplay footage of the game in a desperate attempt at downplaying bloodborne, it only makes you look incredibly foolish. the evidence shows that it does not, in fact, look like an "early gen PS3" game. and you clearly haven't played any of the souls games if you're commenting on the combat... the fact is that it's the absolute furthest it can possibly be from "clunky." or is that just your go-to buzzword anytime you're going to insert your invalid opinion on any playstation exclusive, now?
I decided to do another playthrough of Demon's Souls, just to get ready for Bloodborne. There are some absolutely bone chilling terrain to traverse in that game, such as "The Valley of Defilement." I can't imagine what we're about to see in Bloodborne. I'm sure I'll have nightmares though..lol
Oh man dont remind me of that area :O
45 hrs? im sold then
45 hours!? god damn, this game is going to be epic!
To many good things said, now how are fanboy sites like IGN and others supposed to crap on this game without looking like fools?
4/10 Too much Blood No objective marker no qte too hard IGN
You can make your own character... with sun glasses??? So badass!
Now a reason to get a ps4, awesome!!!!
