FromSoftware’s action RPG Bloodborne is on sale right now for $7.99 at Amazon. The deal is only valid on the PS4 digital download version.
Unless you hate challenging games, there's no reason not to own Bloodborne in my opinion. Fantastic game, interesting weapons, great boss fights, interesting lore, etc.
Challenging is one thing, but this type of game is just downright ridiculous. Makes it not even fun when a game is that unfair. I gave it a try when it came out and maybe made it to the third boss. Didnt have the desire to go on. Darksiders 3 is much more enjoyable to me.
Different strokes. I didn't find it too hard or "downright ridiculous". I don't see it as unfair at all. Bloodborne is a game that punishes poor planning and conservative combat. I'm sure you realized that if you got three bosses in. You had to be aggressive always, and smart always. "Smart" was often different, depending on the enemy. So I never saw it as unfair. It took a lot of strategy with weapon choices, build types, and mastering counters/critical attacks. If I may be so bold, I would invite you to reconsider your play style and try again. It may genuinely not be your cup of tea, but it's something to think about if you still have it (or don't mind dropping $8 to own it again). I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I'm wondering if the game would be easier for you now--if I'm not mistaken, some patches were released to nerf certain aspects of the game (in the player's favor, actually). I never really got into Darksiders the way some others did. Played and beat the first one when it was on PlayStation Plus. Not a bad game, but not good enough to get me to invest in any sequels. Never cared to play them.
Got it for free on PS+ a while back. Still a great price for those that missed it tho.
