I still haven't played Bloodborne, from what I've heard, it's pretty amazing, going to invest in the GOTY edition!

It's AMAZING! imo the best ARPG you can get, action is very fun and thrilling, and the game will be better now than at release since they released a bunch of network updates and made co-op/invasions smoother than before.

Not to mention the ton of weapons released in the dlc, which was a complaint back at launch with lack of weapons to use. Imo BB will be at it's pinnacle on Tuesday.

Bloodborne in a nutshell. One step forward, 2 steps back, dodge, hit, repeat.

Eiyuuou3129d ago

More like: One step forward, two steps back, dodge, dodge again, hit, attempt to dodge, get hit anyway, die, repeat till you git gud.

Yeah I was just teasing lol, but yeah the game is ridiculously hard. I played for a few hours and just gave up. Just felt the gameplay was too broken. There were times where I perfectly dodged an attack and the bosses still hit me out of no where and I just stopped playing. Evidently I'm in a small minority.

Eiyuuou3129d ago

The invincibility frames are quite strict. Only at the start of the dodge do they occur. And if you think the start is brutal, you should see the "Defiled Chalice". They litteraly halve your HP. So pretty much every enemy, and especially bosses, can one shot you to oblivion.

The rush you feel when you win is so worth it though!

The solution... get good. Getting the platinum for this game was epic.

Defiled rotted fettid chalices demand perfection.

Will we be able to use the new weapons right off the bat or do we have to wait until we reach the DLC area? I am in the first Sick Room on NG+. I haven't even ran past the first wolfe yet. My character is "skill" stat heavy, it just scales good with the Blades of Mercy. If we can have access to the new weapons right off the bat and not have to wait for the DLC area I might just stick with having a "Skill" heavy character on NG+ and continue on. Hopefully a "skill" scaling weapon will be one of the new ones but I'm not sure.

I might just wait until my harcover Future Press guide comes so I can see the stats for each new weapon and see what stat scales the best with them. There guide for the regular game was the best hard cover guide I've probably ever seen. It was 500 plus pages. The Old Hunters guide is around 200 or 250 I think.

I guess I'm pretty stoked to be diving into this again. This was my game of the year for 2015 and it will be a great work up for.........Dark Souls 3.


Greatest DLCs In Gaming That Walk The Hall Of Fame

Gaming has given birth to some of the best DLCs ever made that enhance the base game significantly. Here are a few top recommendations.


10 Expansions That Are Better Than The Main Game

NoobFeed Editor Joshua Burt writes - It is now a mainstay of gaming that post a title's release, and DLC will accompany the game. Some of the most popular games of the last fifteen years have followed this practice. But there are some DLCs that are better than others. That stands on the shoulders of their base game, and in some cases… Surpass it. These are the 10 expansions that were better than the main game.

Damn, I feel stupid when years ago I played all the dlc for fallout 3 except the pitt. My younger ass looked at it and thought it was boring without trying I believe... Well good reason to fire up the old dusty ps3!

PhillyDillyDee726d ago

Bethesda usually does great DLC. Makes sense they are on the list 3 times.

generic-user-name726d ago

Solid list, I'd add inFamous: Festival of Blood, although it was a standalone download, it still felt like an inFamous 2 expansion.

Blood and Wine might be the best ever though.

SullysCigar726d ago

I'd also add in Horizon The Frozen Wilds. As I started it, I wasn't sure I had the energy, but my God that was awesome. Some of the best weapons, enemies and missions in Horizon for sure.

Blood and Wine is always the reason these "best DLC of all time" list gets made in the first place nowadays.
Don't think CDPR can come any where near with any upcoming CP2077 DLC.

Silly Mammo726d ago

I have beaten Bloodborne but though i have the DLC I never played through it. For now I want to wait and see if it gets a Bluepoint remake.

anast726d ago

It's the best DLC in the genre. You are missing out.

SarwarRon726d ago

I double that. If you've liked Bloodborne, don't miss out The Old Hunters.

I skipped on Demons Souls remake, but Bloodborne would be day one. I love the game, but it is very, very jaggy and really needs a 60fps edition.

anast726d ago

I didn't like Blood and Wine too much, but the grandmaster gear is worth it.
