anyone else notice the irony? when "the order" launched...it was criticized for "lack of gameplay" or was questioned for having enough gameplay value to be worth 60 dollars. NOW, bloodborne is released. and I'm seeing articles on how to AVOID gameplay or to GLITCH/EXPOLIT as to make the game easy and KILL the gameplay......the hypocricy (or pure stupidity) in gaming is head-shakingly bad.
Haha, that's a good point!
Totally agree! Double standards all around lol
Umm, not really that similar.. Nor are the articles posted by the same people. The Order is so linear and gives you so little freedom, the fact that BB contains ways around things is totally different. People are sinking 10+ hrs without even scratching BB.. Some people want to speed run, some people want to experiment..
10 hours like Dan Stapleton pussy galore without killing the first boss? If that's common with gamers around the world then faith in humanity is already lost. Someone who plays games since years ago don't have the minimum skill to press some buttons and learn some patterns? SMH...
Arkardo: Lolwhat? I didn't say anything negative about it. A lot of people play cautiously and enjoy the blood collecting loop and want to level a bit. People approach a game like BB and play in many different ways. Something that isn't true of something like The Order that demands you do things its way.
@mixelon I think he just wanted to make fun of the IGN writer that posted an article about "how bloodborne lost him". Basically he sucks at this type of game and doesn't understand people that do like it. There was a lot of negativity about him and the article because it was posted before the official IGN review. Gave the game a negative opinion before the website even have its actual verdict.
wow, mixelon - you just illustrated my above comment.
nucky64 - It's not hypocrisy and it's not double standards, it's just standards. BB offers a lot more than The Order, so it afforded more leeway. It's not rocket science.
There is absolutely no irony or hypocrisy in any of which you stated. Especially when it's referring to one article from one person on how to do a glitch in a game that is filled with gameplay, great design and depth.
There is no irony because this is a glitch and it will be used primary by speed runners rather then people who complained about The Order 1866 length, most games have these type of glitches including the previous Souls games so it's nothing new, heck even at the end of the article is a video speed run of BloodBourne. this is the first article I've seen regarding a glitch that lets you avoid content on this site.
No thank you. Id rather do it the hard way so I can get that sense of accomplishment. Plus I wouldn't want to miss those trophies
Yep :) Slaying bosses and leveling up, is all part of the fun!
Why skip the bosses? That's the biggest thrill of the whole game. What a dumb topic. The 2nd boss actually glitched on me. While I was running from him, he got stuck on a tombstone while chasing me and mysteriously died. I felt cheated. I'd rather beat him on my own, than have a glitch do it for me. I almost started over.
Such a cool fight too, dang that sucks bro.
The first time I fought him I had two summoned hunters with me, and we took him out before he got a chance to go into beast mode. I've helped many others get past him so I've seen it all play out now, but I know what you mean about feeling cheated even though my game didn't glitch. Anyway… Bloodborne is my new favorite game of all time. I never buy strategy guides but once I'm done with my first run through I plan to buy one for this game. I want to see everything this masterpiece has to offer, so skipping content is bizarre to me. I guess speed runs make it understandable, but I've never been interested in doing that myself.
Speed runners primarily, they're always looking for ways to beat the game faster which includes glitches.
why would anyone do that?
I really really really really don't know.
Does interested in speedrunning maybe?
More like: "This trick will surely waste the money that you invested into Bloodborne!"
This is plain stupid, why people would want to do this? Seriously I don't get people nowadays, play the f***** game...
Get this trash outta here!
Hell yeaahhh!! I'm going to leg it through the entire game, not earn any trophies or enjoy the game.
so, play a game... to not play a game...
yeah I don't get that part either You bought something to play, and then proceed to deliberately miss out on gameplay
Its only week 1 and this game is already full of dupers and hackers. Yesterday I summon a guy into my game to help with the third boss. He was wearing the starting armor and was using the standard clever. I thought that was odd to be using starting gear at this point in the game until I saw why. He was invulnerable damage and he one shot Vicar Amelia with his pistol. That fight didn't even get started and the boss was already dead at my feet. Another Souls game with hacked online. When is FROM ever going to fix this?
I play with starting Axe...it's awesome! why is it any worse than anything else?
Its been just a week.. these things tend to pop up after so many people experimenting with the game. Im sure From will patch it soon
How to skip all the bosses in Bloodborne: don't play the game. Save yourself hours of enjoyment in this goty front runner!
Seriously...what idiot buys a game.......to skip large chunks of the game. This may be the dumbest article ever written.
Bloodborne is all about finding secret paths and exploring. It's not nearly as hard when you play it smart.
Dont skip the fights, thats such a boring way to play. Besides theregood trainin for the bosses that come next. I barely got past the first 3 levels in the previous souls games and i beat cleric and father gas quite handily, cleric on my third go and father on my first. If i can do it, dnt see why anyone else cant
Why would you want to skip the first 3 bosses? They're not that hard if you know what your doing. This is a fantastic game so far!
People, the guy performing this glitch is literally doing a speedrun and clearly not a first timer in the game, he doesnt need to practice against the first three bosses, he doesnt need to earn the trophies and he doesnt "diminish the value of the game" by performing a new playtrough with this glitch. He has already experienced the game. This is clearly not intended for the new players to try to exploit. Besides I dont even know whats there bellow the surface because I have never been there and I have beaten 4 bosses already (and I dont even know which of them were optional) Im pretty sure that if a nublet ever were to go there, he/she would probably face too hard enemies too early.
That is the entire point of this article, but of course the fanboys don't like "skipping content". I guess duping millions of blood echoes and unchecked online PVP hacking is OK. But skipping content? Thats an outrage!
