CraveOnline: "Having completed Bloodborne on Monday, I was one of the first people in the world to conquer the game. I learned a lot along the way, and decided that I would share some of this information in a dedicated post about what I learned."
there it is, someone complaining its short* funny part, DS2 took me 16 hours to complete, so idk how it took him 45 to complete.
You and the author both deserve a cookie, go ahead and take one, you earned it.
Making hasty generalizations aren't we?
I play differently than most. I'm an mmo/rpg fan so I scour everything blindly, go back places, farm items etc. So, I always have plenty of echoes, ammunition and items. And I love to kill everything on the way to the boss as a challenge. Can't wait for ng+, but it will be awhile b/c I spent about 90 hrs on Dark Soul's before ng+, then it was quicker for ng+ and ng++. I do dislike one thing as an avid rpg fan, and that's scouring for loot, upgrading weapons and armor etc. But I do think there are probably many secrets he missed, and I believe much could be added. But I do feel ot was streamlined quite a bit, adventure wise b/cc it was a huge Sony exvlusive.
Congrats Maybe (and most probably) it is something that I'll never get it. :-(
so much brag in this article.
This game is truly next-gen. Me and my friend played it and took turns after we died. So insane especially with the graphics and combat being quick. I put it on the same level as the experience I had with the FF15 demo
I watched someone do that via shareplay. It was very interesting to see.
While the game is great, I really don't see it as "next-gen". It totally could have been done on the last Gen of consoles. I know From Software probably don't have massive western budgets... but I wouldn't necessarily says it screams next gen
Idk man i mean those graphics look pretty impressive to me and something Ive yet to see on a console rpg. The lighting and effects from fighting the bosses and the designs of the levels are blowing me away. The animations and everything you can just tell it was built for this current gen
The game is one of the games I've played in a while but the graphics are nothing to brag about. It looks good just not The Order/Ryse good.
You're lost if you think it could run on Xbone. So much you obviously don't understand things like Draw Distance, Framerate, Vsync, etc. I bet 360 and PS3 can run Bloodborne, you're right /S
Its a fantastic game but I don't know why you consider it 'truly next-gen' Shaky framerate, muddy textures, bad AA, ridiculous long load times, and its really only a small iteration on previous souls games. There is no next gen leap here. Its just a great, new souls game. Nothing more, nothing less
........ Why is it next gen? It's a great game but it's something that we have seen before. I haven't played a "next-gen" games yet. They are all just prettier versions of stuff we have played. SSO is a little different but I wouldn't even call that "next gen"
1. There are way more than 4 armor sets. Armors are more for a specific type of damage reduction, not a full-on upgrade. 2. That's not the true final boss. 3. Buying vials is way better than farming low levels enemies, especially if you are late into the game. 4. I agree with some of the bosses being easy, especially the late story bosses. The optional ones are a lot tougher.
3. I disagree. Where I'm at, vials cost 750 blood echos. It's much easier to just farm them off of villagers I can kill in one hit than be able to buy 20 of them with blood I could be using to level up with. The rest I agree with.
You can literally farm 12-15k (depending on runes) echos in like a minute or two in the lecture building. This is of course, much later in the game which i'm referring to since he has the means to farm enemies that drop more echos. Warping to a low level area is just not efficient.
Wtf? I'm 35 hours in and I have a total of 8 full sets of armor. This guy didn't explore at all.
Interesting about the starting weapon being good through the whole game. I was just wondering if I would find super weapons :D. Kind of sad I won't though. I want a nuclear sword damn it haha
What I learned about Dark Souls II last year was that I am no gamer compared to the folks that tackled Bloodborne – and already beat it and are coming back for more.
