A brand new Bloodborne demonstration shows off 30 minutes of death, new weapons, combos, and even a boss battle.
Eh to be honest apart from decent graphics, this game looks like the mechanics are really dated. Not sure why all the hype. It doesn't look scary, and all the enemies just tend to jump out from dark corners, which is really predictable. Maybe I am missing something which justifies all the hype?
"Maybe I am missing something which justifies all the hype?" - Play a souls/demon game then you will understand. If you have and don't like them then I can't help you.
Video is really compressed. Is there a better video out? Haven't played Demon Souls nor Dark Souls. But this title i'm going to pick up. Is there anyway you can mess with camera settings to make it not as flickery when moving it around?
Im really attracted to the weapon transformations, and the ambiance. But why is this called bloodborne? . i see no decapitations, no disslimbing. Like its toned down for kiddies . Also the gameplay seems a little sluggy . But that slege hammer, can it too transform ? that'd be sweet!
It's not really meant to be scary, it's more of a creepy atmospheric game, kinda like resident evil 4.
This has nothing to do with horror lol so get rid of it trying to be scary because it wont be. From Software works on games that have amazing atmosphere and a difficulty level beyond most games. Day 1 for me for sure.
"The game mechanics look dated". Are you trying to throw in a few low-blow punches there? What game have you played that looks anything similar to bloodborne besides the highly regarded demon/dark soul series? Yea. exactly, none. OT: The graphics, tone, style and gameplay of Bloodborne looks second to none. It is just amazing - the gamescom trailer and the one released today are stellar to say the least. An easy GOTY contender for 2015.
"this game looks like the mechanics are really dated." By that logic, 99% of the games in the market right now (including indies), have outdated mechanics. I mean come on, the game has so many changes to the core mechanics of the Souls games (hitting back after getting hit gives you your health back, you can carry a gun and a melee weapon at the same time, etc.), it doesn't deserve to be blamed for having "outdated mechanics"...
agreed .. while a quick look seems that its mechanics resemble the old ones..these minor mechanics (absorbing health , unfolding your weapon-creating a new one, no shield -no defence ,gun instead of shield) they create a real unique-no seen way of gameplay..you can say it resembles a little bit MOnHUn but that makes the game even better
Don't worry snipab8t. It's not really about the single player anyway and you'll probably love the multiplayer. The MP going to have tons of innovative things. Like mechs, killstreaks, health regen, and plenty of chest high walls. /HighSarcasm But if that is a serious/non-troll comment, then your questions have already been answered by others here.
Mr. disagreeb8t This game is designed to provide a hard but rewarding experience once you beging to master which weapon type is better used for specific situations, with pressure building up as you start to get surrounded. The smallest and weakest enemies in this game can three shot you individually, picture mobs of monsters coming all at once.
If you're not a Souls fan why comment? Terrible post. Bloodborne has deeper gameplay than every game you're looking forward to.
snipb8t go troll somewhere else
if it aint broke........
Can't wait to play this. Certainly appearing to be the best rpg. This and witcher 3. :3 Loving the dark and creepy atmosphere of this game.
Can't wait to play it , but the person who was playing was pretty bad falling on the same trap etc, Just give me the Demo and i'll give a better 30 minutes Gameplay :D
is there one without the annoying commentary?
it is freaking hard i hate that,why i can't enjoy with a game not punched every time I pass level unbelievable and something should Sony think about it, not every players are a pro gamers!!!!!!!!
Souls Game arent really that hard You just cant go in guns blazing or you will be killed quickly. You need to pay attention to your enemies, learn their attacks ect. Im not the best Souls Player but i got Platinum in Demons Souls and Dark Souls (currently playing DS2)
Souls games are all about timing. Like Hanso said, if you go in guns blazing...your dead before you even started. Will NEVER work for these kind of games. And if Sony made these series easier, they would lose a lot of charm and a big fanbase that is behind these games. But honestly, there is no game more rewarding than a From Software game, they will punish you to no end but as soon as you get by that one level or that one boss...there is no better feeling while playing a game. Its the best part.
I'm getting that Demon's Soul / Dark Souls 1 feeling again just by watching. Dark Souls 2 was a bit too floaty when moving around, this looks to be in between. Grounded but faster.
Both speechless at the game and troll comments... Amazing...
I REALLY like the atmosphere. It's like Demon/Dark Souls in a new setting and that is a very good thing. Looking forward to this one.
This looks like a single player Diablo 3 with a lower camera. Killing enemies and walking in zigzags on the street. There really needs to be more to this game. Looks good visually but kill enemies and following the street around and round is not a good look. Plus everything looks to be tight,no breathing room. is this and open world game?
No, not an open world. Expect multiple areas with branching paths to one another. And the tightness is intentional. All souls games were kind of claustrophobic, I expect this to be like that.
Looks ready to ship to me. Ship it out now Sony.
I knew that this game was supposed to be like the soul's games. And it is, I guess I better prepare to DIE!
Why do enemy bodies loose weight after death? Example 23:30, when the giant dies he changes into rubber lightweight doll, bouncing around ridiculously. Kinda takes the atmosphere away. Its been like this since the first demons game. Heavy geared knight vs heavy geared monster in a slow tactical face off of skill and stamina, yet after death its like running over a rubber duck.
"Its been like this since the first demons game." I actually loved the ragdoll mechanics after a enemy died lol
Don't think any game has made progress in that regard. Will have to probably wait for ragdoll 2.0 for some realistic collisions. On the other hand, in a grim Souls world, it's fun to drag/roll them into an overhead throw. With all the dying and such.
Nice atmosphere and graphics but seems boring to me.
That annoying commentary killed this video for me -_-
Eh, just a next gen Dark Souls game, nothing more nothing less. In other words, If I can't get my hands on a PS4 for this game I will lose my mind.
Everytime I see a bloodborne gameplay video, I require a change of pants. I think those 2 events are connected
Sonybis lucky to have thosngame exclusive. Is going to move a lot of sales. Day 1 for me.
I can get this experience in Dark Souls II which is still pushing out new content. Honestly the only appeal this game has, in my opinion, is that it is exclusive to PS4. There is hardly any new ideas, concepts, or gameplay and anyone who had love for this particular genre would be content with the new content for Dark Souls II, and is probably still running through Demon Souls, and Dark Souls I. As an avid Souls fan, this is nothing new or exciting and the only hype that I am seeing is those you never played a soul game (Shame on you!) and those who are only into it because it's an exclusive. First, don't support a game only because your console is getting and the other isn't, that's childish and annoying. Second, go buy and play a Souls game, if there is still excitement for Bloodborne, by all means buy it. However, in my mind it doesn't make sense to go get this when i can get the same, maybe even better, experience with a game that's already out.
