Quite a few screenshots of Bloodborne were leaked online, they're relatively spoiler-free story wise, but they do show unannounced weapons.
I got that vibe from 6th gen's pure adventure games, which is awesome. Can't wait for this game.
You and me as well. I've played some of it two days at From and I can't say a word about it until tomorrow, but yeah. I want more.
I cant wait for this game too its my most anticipated ps4 game this year but you seriously gave the order and driveclub a 8.5 so everyone in the gaming community knows your score will be a 10/10 automatically. @MasterCornholio Theres no if's or buts is definately getting a 10/10 and that doesnt bother im happy i cant wait to play it i just think reveiwers shouldnt be biased about which consoles they prefer.
@Aussie I think a lot of people will give this game a 10/10 and it has nothing to do with The Order 1886 or Drive club. Anyways why would it bother you if Abriael gave this game a 10/10?
Yo, Abriael, does the review embargo lift tomorrow, or just an embargo for info jurnos got from attending EGX and other events and behind the scenes stuff ?
@Master: tomorrow it's just the embargo for previews. @AussieGamer1: Funny to hear about 10/10's and crap like that. I never gave a 10/10 in 17 years. The fact that I scored higher games that you didn't like, it doesn't mean those scores are given automatically, or that my opinion is less legit than yours. As a matter of fact, given your usual tone, it's doubtful that you've ever played them, so your opinion is probably more "automatic" than mine, and we all know why.
I thought the order was an 8.4, so, I'd say you were pretty accurate. on topic - looking at those screens just kills me - I want this game SOOOOOOOO bad!
Actually I have played them and where did I say I didn't like them Lol did you make that up? and what the hell are you talking about giving my usual tone have you ever seen me write a fanboy response or diss any ps4 game? Are you making all of this up? It's just funny you rate the order 8.5 when clearly there was so much room for improvement you were one of the most lenient towards it and it's funny that you rate driveclub the same as Fh2 when clearly Fh2 was in another league (my personal favourite racer ever) why I'm saying this is because they clearly could have been better in alot of ways and you rate average games with above average scores and then get above average games and give them average scores. It is CLEARLY because you favour the ps4 and I don't really care what you think I'm a proud ps4 owner from day one so don't come telling me that my opinion is more automatic it's a joke I appreciate all games for what they are but as a reviewer you should be fair to all games and consoles. Anyways I hope you enjoy bloodborne because I know I will too.
@AussieGamer1: Unfortunately for your sad conspiracy theories, the game that got closest to getting a 10/10 for me (and still got 9.5, because we don't have .1 decimals, unfortunately) was Animal Crossing for 3DS. Looking at all my 9.5 in the past few years, which is the highest score I've ever given, there's one for 3DS, 1 PS Vita, 1 PC, 1 Wii and 2 multiplats (both played on PC, for the record). SO Much PS4 (or PlayStation) favor, rite? The only PlayStation exclusive game that scored among the highest I had was Persona 4 Golden, and I challenge anyone to argue it deserves any less. Historical data does not lie. You, on the other hand... A game having room for improvement doesn't mean it should be rated low, and your comparison between FH2 and Driveclub is hilarious. First of all, because they're two completely different games, and comparing them directly is as proper as comparing Skyrim and Dark Souls, and secondly because you somehow think that since a game is your "personal favourite racer ever" it should be rated higher than another by others. The keyword is "Personal." They've been rated the same score because both have perks and flaws that weigh pretty much the same. Actually, the correct tense would be "had," because Driveclub has been improved a lot more than FH2 did, and at it would be over 9, bordering a 9.5, if it was released as it is now. You may want not to invent biases for others about whom you know nothing, and look at yourself instead.
I need Bloodborne in my veins!
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.
Someone was streaming the game yesterday on Ustream then got banned at 52m.
First game I'm actually excited about on PS4, can't wait to play it. I don't have my PS4 hooked up, does anyone know if it is available to pre-load yet?
Looks better than I thought it would.
It's definitely a big step up from the Souls games in terms of world design, atmosphere and attention to detail. The weapon and armor designs are top notch as well, I think this will be the first true masterpiece of this generation :)
With Darksouls 2 the downgraded the visuals right before release. But with Bloodborne they actually upgraded them. I mean I shouldn't be surprised since that happens with most PS4 exclusives but I still am. Anyways I'm happy to hear that they fixed the framerate as well. Good bye blight town. :)
Well time for me to go dark. Scared to even look at articles now I remember people ruining heavy rain in the comments section when it released.
I remembered when that happen some jerk had his profile name the same as the killer.lol I still played it because games you are in control of the action even in a game like heavy rain. I remembered when demon souls came out and i needed a new game,gamers on n4g where giving such a great feedback on that i had to see what hype was about.so glad that i did now the rest is history. Bloodborne day1
yea - definitely not looking at "early player" crap.
FromSoft aren't exactly known for their graphics, but damn it's definitely improved. The artwork and visual design here is just impeccable. Can't wait for the first masterpiece of next-gen! :)
Hard to say if it's improved based on the those screens, all but 1 of them are pretty low res. As long as there isn't a Blighttown framerate wise I'll be happy lol.
8 days! why must we suffer for 8 more days!
any1 got this game? are the other locations looking different or all "town style"???
There will be. From isn't one to spoil a whole lot for fans. A lot of what we've e seen is the beginning of the game.
FROM has already said that the game is not entirely all in yharnam. watch the interactive video on the games site and you'll get a few second look at each area - and it doesn't spoil anything - you don't get much of a look.
Where's his shadow from all these lighting on the background...?
I'm really liking the look from the weapon stat menu picture. Looks like it has all the info I hoped for! Can't wait!
style over stats, FashionBorne!
My spare controller just arrived... I'm ready.
Haha, you mean you gonna break the 1st one cause of all the dying?Haha been there when i started playing souls games.But it was worth it.
Animation/design, is jaw dropping in its artistic direction.
I have to say all Bloodborne screenshots reveal beautiful graphics
so, can you play this co-op with your friends? or is it that random placement thing?
Game looks great. I'm loving the art style, the detailed bosses, character animations, blood effects, etc. I'd have to say that my ONLY gripe at this point is the AA solution the game is using. Doesn't seem to be quite enough, but maybe that's ironed out by now. In any case, greatly looking forward to the game.
The AA has been much improved since the IGN videos were shown. When you play the game you will see what I mean.
It looks fantastic but I hope the difficulty is not too hard. Seriously I dont like games that are so frustratingly hard that I just want to eat my own face off in disgust. I hope its challenging but in a good way...
It's challenging in a good way. Dying is a learning experience because this game has a trial and error learning curve in a lot of ways. Combat is methodical and strategic but is faster paced in Bloodborne compared to the rest of the Souls games. These games respect your intelligence and doesn't hold your hand. If you have trouble you can summon another player to help you. Get the game trust me you will see what all the fuss is about then unless of coarse you like super easy casual games then this isn't the game for you.
Thanks mate so everything is pointing to a yes for me.
@Eizhale: Just in case you aren't aware this game is an RPG and not an just an action game where you button mash and travel from level to level. There is exploration and leveling up is and choosing what stats you want to upgrade is very important. There is a lot of depth to the game. Just trying to forewarn you in case you aren't into RPGs that take a long time to beat so you don't regret your purchase.
