    Played for a few hours today. Didn't like how the frame rate often dips below 30 fps, that's inexcusable for an action game. I did have a much better handle on it than Dark Souls, at least at first. Then I died to a sewer boar despite having the advantage of a small hallway I could duck into, saw that getting to the shortcut back to near where I was would still be a pain in the ass, so I took a sidetrip to a part of the bridge I didn't bother with on my first go-around and accidentally ran into the first boss, a massive damage sponge. I whittled down a third of his health before I died and there goes 4000+ echoes worth of progress. I'll try again tomorrow, but this may end up being as aborted as the DS experience.

    Since Demon's Souls is listed as playable on the RPCS3 emulator, I recommend downloading it and attempting to progress through the first level. If you can't manage this, then you shouldn't bother with the other Souls games, much less the even more action-oriented Bloodborne, and could have saved the money you spent on it and Dark Souls. :M

    Little word of advice:
    Show Spoiler

    Beasts are weak to serrated weapons like the saw spear and to fire. There are actually plenty of molotovs and oil urns around the first area. Use them on the Cleric Beast. Also, you're not supposed to whittle their health. Massive bosses like this one, you're supposed to keep up the pressure on them, not play hit and run like in the other Souls games. Hit them hard enough and often enough, they'll become temporarily incapacitated and you can perform a visceral attack (look for something like a massive bleeding wound to see where you got to do the attack, iirc it's on their head) on them for massive damage. Sometimes it's better to just eat some hits just to keep attacking - unless you get one shot, healing is plentiful and fast and you can recover lost health just by continuing attacking.

    Someone said something about the "Gaming Moment of the Decade" (cvv ?) in another thread. Well, mine was getting home with my new PS4, unboxing it, firing up Bloodborne and getting out of Iosefka clinic to the Yharnam streets for the first time.

    On a close second is probably Staker CoP, which I've played for the first time around 2010 with Misery mod (the first version, before it became true misery) and seeing the sun rise on the horizon (those God rays) atop a tree after running from radiated dogs. The most immersive experience I've ever had outside real life.

    This would be so stupid if they won't release it at all.

    The 60 FPS port is a 100% certainty and the PC version is coming with it.

    Beat the Cleric Beast, but I had to grind for all the armor upgrades, upgraded the axe twice, and used 10 molotov cocktails. Then I did the same for father what'shisname, though it was easier to stunlock him with bullets. I've now played an hour longer than Dark Souls and I'll keep at it until I hit an insurmountable wall or it starts feeling like work. So far I'm liking it better because of the lack of infuriating parts (so far), all the health vial drops, and how the dreamspace is the one-stop shop for leveling, buying consumables, and repairing (without the need to grind for a repairbox).

    you can.
    but you just complained about having to grind a few souls for a repairbox in DaS1.

    Grinding for convenience features is bad. Grinding for consumables, well that's just the price of my lack of skill.

    What is better - grinding for a basic health potion during your whole playthrough, or grinding for one cheap item that isn't even mandatory since equipment degradation is so slow and cheap to fix it may as well not exist?

    The blood vial grind is especially bad because Dark Souls already solved it by introducing an autorefilling Estus flask.

    Complaining about grind in Dark Souls 1 because of a repair box, and then immediately saying that grinding in Bloodborne is tolerable is really stupid.

    Potion refills don't help me much when I only get five (or ten if I want to throw away some humanity) and the next bonfire is a long way off.

    Though looking back, I probably should have kindled that fire. Oh well. :M

    A way to mitigate the blood vial grind is to buy extra vials with your remaining echoes after a level up/weapon upgrade and stash 'em away. By the mid to late game you'll probably have a fair amount in the storage.
