Kotaku:"When I finished Bloodborne on Sunday afternoon, my playtime was 46 hours, 21 minutes, and 13 seconds. The current world record is, well, way faster. How much faster? It's 44 minutes!"
I didn't watch the video to avoid spoilers. But I've read that the person used glitches to accomplish this.
Yeah, and because of that he skiped one big area in the beginning.
Yup. Full cheated run. Not impressed at all.
why would u want to ,its an awesome game.
Oh he beat the game in 44 minutes i guess its too short and not worth my time to buy this game. No value at all why pay $60 for only 44 minutes of gameplay. /S for those with no common sense
Didn't someone beat dark/demon souls in 12 minutes or something like that using similar tactics? I remember seeing a headline around here abotu that a few years ago. I remember I used to do halo:ce level speed runs using glitches on attack on the control room trying to beat others and submit them to halo.bungie.org (greatest community site for a game ever btw, is it still going? havent been there in about 8-9 years). Fun days :D I'm too old and slow for speed runs these days I reckon. Oddly enough I just checked my bloodborne time through the load game menu, I've put in 44 hours. 44 hours vs his 44 mnutes... dang!
I do remember that and once you get to the comments it was declared fake. That guy had switched armor and other things in the middle of the game and he never showed what he was using so his equipment could have been leveled up massively.
Newsflash: Cheating makes games easier.
It took me longer on the menus. :/ Some people are crazy!
no way he can do that without glitches.. reminds me of zelda 64 finished in 5 min due to a glitch that takes you to ganondorf right away lol
World record is about 17 minutes. Not 5
Pretty sure I spent longer than that making my character adn getting him just as I imagined he'd look in my head (wasn't tryign to create myself btw, just the kind of character I envisioned being in this universe)
I'm not ashamed to admit it took me 10 hours before beating the first boss, but I had a ton of fun getting to that point.
No shame. I'm at least 15 hours into the game and I just beat the 2nd boss
@Perjoss & @Manubiggs That is the EXACT reason why this game is as good as it is. Even when your not "PROGRESSING (in the traditional sense of the word)" this game is still a BLAST!
After I killed the first boss, I went back to cover previous areas first before moving forward. Just wanted to make sure I knew where everything was before starting the next section.
Yh, probably took me even longer Then again with good games like these I like to take my time and explore. There are quite alot of small things you can miss in the first parts
Ye I'm on 9 hrs stuck at the second boss lol. Ima beat him eventually lol. I always look around very thoroughly For things so I'm pretty sure itll take me 50+ hours to beat. It's all about the timing lol this game is raw and hard like a porno...sorry. Anyway I'll be playing this for a while I keep switching from BB to BFH. Throw DA:I in cause I still have yet to beat that smh. Games taking over my life!!!! But I'm OK with that :)
Thats a GOOD thing. Ur getting a ton of bang for ur buck!
I still haven't beat the first boss, almost did the first time I faced him but never been close since ha.
So much shorter than The Order... ...I kid. I kid. Enjoyed both actually
"beaten". The word that instantly says how people play their games. People who actually enjoy games mostly use the word "finished".
It's a speedrun... he probably beat the game 50 times before getting this time. The best speedrunners are crazy dedicated.
The guy must have given up a lot of sleep to reach that.
Oh sure. in this case it's just a speedrun. I'm talking in general. When people play the game the first time. This is obviously a speedrun. And knowing the Souls games and Bloodborne... that sounds like a lot of time to find out the fastest way.
I enjoy games, and I use the term beat the game. Finished just means you've stopped playing it.
I noticed a lot of people who use the term "beat" were people who take less time to play and finish the game. Not all of them ofcourse. But in general it seems that way to me.
thinking about it, I grew up with beat! I think I will keep using beat., COMPLETED is 3 syllable and FINISH is 2.. I don't like talking much..
So you just skip everything and leap over walls? I want to see who can beat the game in the shortest time fighting all the bosses. I suspect that people will have to add 20 hours.
When you kill enemies,their bodies stay on the ground in ragdoll until you die or go back to the hunters dream... My plan is when I get near the end is... Go back to central yarnham, and make my way through all the areas that dont require a teleport to get to, and kill EVERY enemy without dying, then run all the way back to the start through all the rag dolled dead enemies :D (yarnham, cathedral, forbidden woods, yahar'gal[sp?], Kilmainham Gaol, [i know its called something else but I live in dublin ireland and thats a famous jail here, and gaol is irish for jail :D] , byrgenwhatsit, etc etc) I wonder how long in before I give up and decide its a stupid idea?! Anyone else thought of trying this? Could be a laugh!
I have only reached the werewolf 2nd boss in the cemetery of yharnham. I wiped through the first big boss and monsters. Then made it to that guy accidentally... I was like Noooooooo I need to upgrade first! I almost beat him first try. I could have thrown a rock at him and he would have died. he got that lucky combo on me in the corner when I dodged into something something.. I was pissed. Haha. I have only played about 9-10 hours so far.
Be sure to make a video when you do - it will be hilarious
Took me about 10 to pass father gascoigne.
Took me longer than that to get about 50 ft...
Took me that long to open the damn wrapper, I swear those things are adult proof.
I'd never try to speedrun a game like Bloodborne. I play games because I love discovering the universe that is proposed to me, taking it all in as I actively feed my willing suspension of disbelief :)
This video might be the only way i get to see the end of the game so might have to watch it at some point, just the first part is making me hurt so not sure how far i will get.
He used glitches to skip content though so it's kinda meh. The current world record for a legit BB run with all the bosses and without using glitches is around 2 hours and thirty minutes, and it will probably reach the 1-1.5 hour mark once the community gets more familiar with the game and the upcoming patches lower the loading times (hopefully).
My time is 29:57:53, yes I did miss some bosses and a fight with the flash step hunter.
this guy has never had fun playing a video game. it is a chore to him
He used glitches so doesn't count in my book.
Yeah it doesn't count for officially doing it, but I can see where he's coming from. He's just seeing how fast it can be done with the cheating involved. Another guy did it in 37 mins.
It does count for officially doing it in the speedrun world. Any% is an extremely common category. I see what you mean though. The All Bosses category is way better. I think the World Record right now is 2hours and 44minutes for All Bosses.
And there's me taking my time soaking in the atmosphere and exploring everything. Truly a great game. Wish work would hurry up and finish
oh.. it took me 2 hours+ to finally cross the 100 meters...
LobosJR did it in 39 minutes yesterday.
Any% has always been extremely lame for Souls games. All Bosses or nothing.
I like how half of you 'gaming elitists' are complaining that this is a glitched run. It's called a any% speed run you gronks.
