IGN: "The life, death, and more death inside of this hardcore action-RPG."
Looking forward to playing this game at some Point.
at some point???.....I'm playing day 1!
Best time to play a Souls game is when it's fresh and people have no clue what's going on. What a great preview, this is exactly what I expected :) "I parted ways with Bloodborne with an intense craving. I want to begin building my own character, and evolving them to fit my playstyle. I want to continue to explore Yharnam and the Hunter’s Dream, and try to piece together the fragments of environmental storytelling that From Software builds its worlds with. I want to dig deeper into the combat, and really become confident in battle like I was after I’d put 100 hours into Dark Souls."
Well yes, I'll definitely play it, thing is I'm in school. So it's a matter of priority. I'll buy and play it. Lol at disagrees thinking I'm trolling.
@Bloodborn - I agree that the best time to play is when it's fresh and everyone's trying to figure out what to do, how to beat certain bosses, discovering secrets on your own, etc. But you gotta ask yourself too, could you beat a game like this without a Wiki guide or Walkthrough guide. I swear, I'd still be trying to beat Queen Qaalag in Blighttown if I hadn't looked at walkthroughs. lol.
"But after choosing my melee weapon and my projectile, I began to realize that the Hunter’s Dream was Bloodborne’s equivalent of The Nexus from Demon’s Souls. My first two hours in the world of Bloodborne pointed towards an angrier, more aggressive game than From Software’s previous action-RPGs. The methodical “sword-and-board” playstyle of Dark Souls 1 and 2 has been injected with a treacherous dose of energy in a handful of ways." thats ALL i needed to hear, see you in march Mr.BloodBorne.
I will use my shock device with this game, so i can really feel the pain when someone attack me, still have scars playing Demon's Souls.
I bought Demon's Souls and i sold Demon's souls.. Then a year later i decided to give it another go, bought it, learnd it and have been hooked on the Souls concept ever since. They even ruind other games for me in a way.. Keeps me hooked. I play DS1/2 more than i play my new PS4. Bloodborne will change all that! Can't Wait! This is gaming right here folks! "Those drawn to the Dark are destined to seek it."
Can. Not. Wait! The true successor to Demon's Souls!
It's almost here!! Oh yeah, I'm excited too!! Edit: wasn't this supposed to be "souls game for noobs"?! :)
Im pretty excited to see what this is like but Im worried it might be too hard for me. Not that I hate hard games, I like a challenge and beat Ninja Gaiden for example, but The Souls series difficulty is legendary. I never played the games so this could be a be overwhelming. I'm ok with dying. Some games people die and they get frustrated. This game you expect to die, so Im ok with that. I'm just worried about it stopping my progression. I dont want to get 20 hours into the game and be really into it and then I cant get past a boss and the rest of the game is blocked off to me. Anyone got any advice for a Souls Series Noob about whether I'll cope with this? It would be great if they released a demo so we could see for ourselves. Demo releases have really gotten scarce this and even last gen. I swear we got more demos when I had to go buy a magazine to get it. Why is that?
Heyo! I can help in the only way I know 2 ways to help you. For one, it took me hours upon hours just to get used to the controls of DS1 and DS2. But now that I have mastered both of the game's controls, I think learning Bloodborne will be much faster and easier. So 1st recommendation: Buy one of the Darks Souls games or Demon Souls. 2nd recommendation: When and if you de get Bloodborne, practice the hell out of that game. I'd say spend about a hour or 2 learning an area and learning how things work. I'm sorry if that is inconvenient and you disagree, but hope that could help. (BTW if a demo does come out I highly suggest you play and learn it there!). "Umbasa' - PriestGascoigne
