This Side of Parallelized: ‘Bloodborne’ and ‘Dark Souls III’

So, the Tokyo Game Show kicked off last night, and because Dark Souls III and (an expansion to) Bloodborne were both on display, I figured now as good an occasion as any to briefly orbit around their resemblances, if I may. By this I mean the aesthetic and mechanic heirlooms Dark Souls has plainly acquired from Bloodborne. While this should come as no surprise given the series’ shared creatives-not-so-behind-the-cu rtain, as well as Bloodborne‘s position essentially as a companion piece to Souls, it would be less than sage of us to take the similarities for granted, including this ‘essentially’.

I really liked Bloodborne! But my heart lies with the Souls games. I love heavy armor and shields more than nimble dodging.

that dont make sense. its seem like the same games to me just they evolve with every addition to the series. im more surprised people are not asking for another armored core or something different.

Right on.

Both are awesome in their own way, and to leave yourself exclusively to one, is to miss out.

Enjoy them all.

Having the Bloodborne expansion this year and Dark Souls 3 next year is like a dream. Can't wait to lose myself once again.

I've loved the Souls games since day 1 Demon's...but I have to say that the Bloodborne mechanics, setting, lore, musical scores, and gameplay has quickly made it my favorite. I still think Demon's has the best pvp in the series, but Bloodborne is pve king.

But very hyped for The Old Hunters and Dark 3.
