Actually, Bloodstarved Beast only MIGHT be the third boss you fight. The paths kind of diverge at this point in the game, and depending on where you go, you might fight something else instead.

Well, I'm in Old Yharnam, killed the obnoxious Hunters there, and have a feeling the Blood Starved Beast is one "wrong" turn away since this seems like a place a beast would be starving for new blood. I decided to save my 10,000 Blood Echoes to see if I can advance past the big gate without the Hunter Chief Symbol.

Also, I started leveling Skill and upgrading the Cane and Saw Spear to great effect; made Goscoigne much simpler and I can pretty much manage, if not melt, mobs with the whip already. Just as effective bitch smacking back big bads before they can get me in range.

Hm, the game has a huge population still, so it's weird you were having trouble.

Hmmm, now you're making me think I might have set something too high in my online friend settings or something and it's blocking the other players. I'll look into it.

The next boss for you after FG is the Blood Starved Beast. It's the boss that made me almost quit the game out of frustration.

Sounds... infuriating! Here beasty beasty beasty, I'm coming! :guts: :chomp:

She must be pretty rusty after not practicing for such a long time. I wonder if she still remembers how to be a soldier.
You also have to wonder what her motivation would be to pick up the sword again, because we haven't got to see what her thoughts for the future are yet. :???:
I would like for her to get back in on the action though.

From her perspective, the Eclipse probably feels like it happened yesterday, so I doubt she's forgotten anything from her mercenary days. If she has any problems, it would be that she's currently not in the best shape from being inactive for so long, but that's a temporary issue at worst.

She killed 3 mercenaries in her damaged state, I think she'll do fine.

...it's not like things are much better or she's had a chance to practice since then.

It's worse; I tried summoning Gascoigne again to fight the Cleric Beast but was trying to protect his health on the way and got myself killed by the stupid giant wolves. Then when I went back I couldn't summon him anymore and realized it consumed Insight to do so! What a waste (of whatever)! :magni: So I think I'm done with that, though I still want to see how summoning/multiplayer works in the game. I haven't even been invaded yet (I wonder if anyone is on; I know it was like free to play a while back so I was expecting some activity).

BB is far more forgiving, but at the same time about the same level of challenge=)

Yeah, like I said I was kind of holding myself back trying to conserve resources I really didn't need to against the risk of getting ganked or boss combo'd to death at half life while holding 17 Blood Vials. :ganishka: Once I started cutting loose, as the game intends, things got better. Though trying to chase healing via aggressive attacking is sometimes like throwing good money after bad, and doubly so when you get in the mindset of doing it at the expense of traditional healing in general. I've already learned you're often better off just backing out and quickly using a vial while it still counts ON TOP of your latest damage, unless the enemy is a chump (sometimes that sucks too because they'll die before I can get much life back =). I'm sure the game is going to take more advantage of this later when the initial hit is just to entice you in for the real death blow. :zodd:

I also summoned another Hunter to help and it was a relief to take on some patrols with backup.


Puss.

Despite my previous Souls experience I'm still probably overly intimidated bybthe bigger enemies. I'm also not healing enough because blood vials seem plentiful, so I think I'll hit my stride once I unlearn some of my ingrained Souls tactics and adapt more to what's efficient in Bloodborne. I already bellowed, "No, NO! It's not faaaair!!" once today, so that's a good sign the game is working as intended. :ganishka:

My guess is Casca is eventually going to be the straw that stirs the drink; a frontline fighter/leader, strategist, and matriarch for "the family." I mean, she was already the reason the gang was together in the first place, so this is all owed to her.

Yass...he's real cute too, Silat <3. It's just that she's always under her worst condition before a fight. Before his attack, Casca literally passed out from fatigue but she still managed to keep up a good fight. Im hoping for a really strong come back of her.

I do think it would be a cool moment for her to do well against him in a rematch, especially if it's the "friendly" sparring of allies. :daiba: But I doubt she could beat him handily as things stand just because he's already proven more than a match, and, though it was under bad circumstances for Casca, it's not like things are much better or she's had a chance to practice since then. Would be a great symbolic triumph to eventually show him what she can really do though. :casca:

I'm sure Guts would be a great coach/cheerleader too, "C'mon, you can beat that circus performer!" :guts:
You should check out our podcast. 100+ hours of Berserk chat  :badbone:

Maybe you've actually added the times (I wouldn't be surprised =), but by my crude estimation it's gotta be around 150 hours at least, if not 200, considering how long most of them are. And sure, there's some sub-60 minute ones in there, but also more than a few over two hours to compensate!
