Bloodborne Hands-on Preview: Dying Is a Sure Thing - The Koalition

Gary Swaby at The Koalition writes: The Dark Souls series is all about figuring things out for yourself with no hand holding, and feeling gratification once you’ve overcome an obstacle. Bloodborne seems to carry over this formula for the most part, but the way in which it’s presented is far more inviting.

The demo I played was short, but long enough for me to understand what developer From Software is going for. At the start of the demo I was able to chose from four different character builds; A swordsman, a heavy weapons expert, a mix of swords and heavy weapons and an agile character with light weapons. I chose the heavy weapons expert which also allows the use of a revolver.

This is a good post of a preview of a game where dying is a sure thing.

SwiffEpics1477d ago

How sure are you that dying is a sure thing?

MrKennedy1477d ago

I've been told that I'm not a very decisive person but I'm not sure about that. So I'm unsure if dying is a sure thing.

dark soul this dark soul that....

someone else played Demons Souls other than me or what?

Dark Souls is just a copy/pasta of Demons Souls, now that we have bloodborn ...peoples will start to notice the gamestyle only when a new copy/pasta of the original will be born(in blood)?

Hmm, another preview that exaggerates the difficulty of the Souls games...

Anyway a good article but no new info I would not know about. Guess I should stop spoiling the game for myself :/

I hear that, platinum'd all three souls games and only in the later ng plusses it gets a bit hairy in some situations. People are too used to be mollycoddled by games.

Hoping this won't just be a 100% Dark Souls rip.

PeaSFor1477d ago

uh... Darksouls was ALSO a Demons Souls rip.

ThunderPulse1477d ago

How can a game be a "rip" if the same company owns it?

Nicely done sir. BTW, 2015 cannot come quickly enough. February alone may be the end of my days outside with Bloodborne, The Order, and The Witcher incoming.

Ever heard Demon's Souls, From Software, Sony Japan Studio, and Hidetaka Miyazaki?

Since this is a spiritual successor to Demon's Souls I'm staying as far away from it as possible. No thanks. I don't hate myself enough to play this.

Another great preview. Can't wait for this masterpiece. Man! Ps4 gonna rule 2015.
