    Great theme, great bosses, great design when it comes to environemnts, great lore and story if you can comprehend it, great weapon design, best looking souls game. Imho it is 2nd best game From made after Demon's Souls.

    Now tell us when you got filtered lol. Gascone ?

    It's just boring old Dark Souls with top hats. You are just calling things great without qualifying that with anything substantial.
    The game isn't hard, the combat is clunky and not very satisfying and if you have played Dark Souls you have already played Bloodborne. And I have played Dark Souls already... It's like Ubisoft games. It's no wonder FromSoft don't bother with a PC port.

    What a weird and shallow way to describe a sequel/ spinoff game. Is dark souls 2 just darksouls but with mods? Darksouls 3?

    Bloodborne does enough to separate itself from darksouls while also staying similar, which was the goal and I don't see why that would be a bad thing, it is pretty much a sequel gameplay wise.

    Every person who has ever described darksouls or Monster Hunter in this way has turned out to be a a low effort gamer with no interest in actually working towards getting better in a game. Clunky is a dog whistle for "i don't understand nor want to put effort into the combat and i died enough that it was frustrating to me."

    These are the only type of people I've ever seen describe combat systems as clunky, a better gamer would be able to describe their issues better without having to resort to some generic word that doesn't actually mean anything.

    It's on PS4 and it's made by fromsoft so it gets massively overrated. In reality it has a really cool aesthetic and setting, but everything else ranges from ok to bad. It's not a particularly good game. It's overall a downgrade over Demon's/Dark Souls.

    The voice actress for the Plain Doll in Bloodborne was the same as for the Maiden in Black in Demon's Souls:

    Demon's Souls might have been when FromSoft struck gold, but it was also the game the killed the studio. Even the recent remake of Demon's Souls was a step down from the original game. Maybe they can't go back to decent oddball games like Evergrace or King's Field after milking this franchise for so long, the Soulsborne formula making them too much money to try anything else. Elden Ring should just have been named Dark Souls 4. The games aren't getting better however, every time they copy their own formula something is lost.

    I'm not sure people are so much raving about PS4 Bloodborne rather than the possibility/desire to see a PC port because the PS4's jittery 30fps target really hampered the game's fast-paced combat. The multiplayer/ level-dependent matchmaking also died less than a year in with the launch of DS3.

    Plot, setting, combat and progression-wise this has absolutely nothing to do with Dark Souls. The fact you say it's DS with a top hat with a couple hours makes it clear you're getting into the game intended to hate it.

    Why play a new game like that?

    :prosper:

    Ok, so now I'm going to have the temptation of playing this before the actual game looming over my head. Fuck you, Sony.

    Actually I bought the game because I thought it would be different from the old formula. If I thought I would hate it I wouldn't have bought it. And I didn't hate it, it was just boring.

    :hmmm:


    This is a spiritual sequel to DS1. What did you expect, Age of Empires gameplay? Of course it will be similar, as it's an evolution of the formula.

    What matters is: with only 2 hours you won't notice how the game realizes it's aggressive gameplay over DS1's turtling which is BB whole stchik. You won't understand the no-shield, regain, beast pellet-based frenesi of blood the game produces. Worse yet, you won't see the Chikage nor Whirlgig Saw, the greatest weapons in all Soulsdom. :obviously:

    get da fuck outta here.

    The Whirligig Saw in particular satisfies a need deep inside me that I never knew I had before.

    My roommate has BB. I guess I need to play it soonish, but he's experiencing Dark Souls for the first time and I don't want to mess with that.
