Future Press has finally released the delayed Bloodborne Collector's Edition Strategy Guide in the U.S. region.
I ordered it pretty pretty early on from it's announcement but for some reason they've yet to ship my copy :(
According to Amazon (where I preordered): "Arriving Friday by 8pm Not yet shipped Order Received - April 4, 2015 8:32 PM" I don't know if that means they are working on filling the orders and I'll get it by Friday but no date was given.
via Amazon "IMPORTANT 3RD UPDATE => The books have been delivered to Amazon this morning (April 17th) and ALL pre-orders will be shipped as soon as Amazon has processed the shipment. Thanks and apologies to everyone for the wrong release dates that were given out." Probably start processing orders the 18th but who knows. Mine is expected to ship Monday and be here Tuesday 4-21. Really don't need it, course I never did, but the dynamic theme, art, just figured for the price I paid why not pick it up. Really all I have left to do is some Chalice Dungeons for the Queen trophy and have to play through again for the 2nd ending. Got 1st and True Ending but used umbilical cords after the Wet Nurse before backing up my save. D'OH!!!!!!
Order Received - February 19, 2015 9:46 AM We've received your order, but we haven't started preparing it for shipment yet. The amount of time your order spends in this status can vary based on the availability of the item(s) and the selected delivery. Mine says it will be at my door on Wednesday.
It was pushed back because they wanted to make sure it covered absolutely everything... It is scheduled to be delivered at my door by Thursday April 23rd according to the email I got from Amazon.. They said they would honor all pre-orders.. The book is gonna be crazy... It's over 500+ pages... It was initially pushed back until May... so I'm ok that it is coming a little earlier even though it's later then the original release date. Don't need it just wanted to pair it with my collectors edition of the game.. I'm in the Chalice Dungeons heading towards the Queen and then I just gotta do the "true" ending
Queen was a fun fight, a bit of an easy fight though given you do it after the defiled chalice.
Hurry up have it release over here!
Already completed it three times and am one trophy away from the plat.. I considered cancelling it but hoping it has some good lore or info in it to still make it worth it.
There's still many secrets to be discovered.
Yep, I see lots of questions on forums going unanswered, like we don't fully understand how insight affects the world, we know it makes some enemies harder by giving them extra moves but thats all for now. And same thing in the UK as far as the guide, Amazon says expected delivery middle of next week.
@Perjoss I read in a forum that insight might make a boss (or enemies) easier the lower your insight. So, I fought the Witches and battled their summoned monsters and had killed one. It came back half strength and I had to kill the other. I died. I spent all my insight, went back to fight and lo and behold, it was just the witches, which are easy to hit from behind with my long blade and then the quick R1. Piece of cake after that.
I really only bought it for the Dynamic theme, plus it's a nice collector's item. I usually don't buy guides.
Got it mainly for the bestiary, i like knowing the correct names to call enemies. And once I've completed it i want to see what ive missed. Also these special editions usually have great artwork.
According to my Amazon Pre-Order yesterday it said Arriving May 1st (Friday) it's now April 30th.
Mine shipped yesterday and says arriving 4/20
