I just binge played Bloodborne nearly three times, including the DLC.

Bloodborne and the Old Hunter's DLC is by far one of my favorite things in the world right now. It's so much damn fun and I'm always feeling the itch to go back and play more. This game needs a sequel like, basically now.

The Lady Maria fight is basically the best and sexiest boss fight of all time. Blood-fire swords for life.

If fans on here are not aware, Bloodborne is the free Playstation+ game this month. Because of this there has been a huge online community movement to repopulate the game serves calling it "Return to Yharnam." Everything from the Chalice Dungeons to the Old Hunters DLC is brimming back to life with PvP and Co-op. So if you by chance been itching to jump back in or looking for something to do before the Dark Souls remaster comes out now is a great time to revisit the game!

I'm doing NG+8 now with Beast Claw. Replayability of this game is really something great.

I have high level so it's not really a problem. I think only few bosses will be tough. I'm doing this playthrough before E3 so I can hype myself for new From Software game.

Beating him was so satisfying. Took me about 30 tries, whereas Ludwig I beat on the first attempt.

For me Ludwig and Laurence are the hardest bosses. I've solo'ed Ludwig two times in my career, but sometimes I still summon Valtr for help  :puck:

Orphan is easily my favorite fight in Soulsborne alongside Artorias, it's hard but fair. On the other hand I find Ludwig and Laurence as extremely hard and frustrating. Ludwig is the hardest first boss of DLC I've ever faced, lol.

Considering how many hours I've happily sunk into I-III and V, I'm definitely ready for IV and VI. My Remaster playthrough, and chatting about it with Aaz, has me doing another DSIII run (it may be tops in my book at this point; it's the real Dark Souls Remastered =). Anyway, I was already shopping for cheap PS4's for Bloodborne but figure I should wait until Christmas. I hope the new game is basically PS4 Pro required or I'll really regret not getting a new 500GB slim when they were $200 last year, but, ya know, college funds and shit. I may literally need to sell my blood to play Bloodborne.

Shameless self-promotion, but here is my fight with arguably the best boss fight of any game Iíve ever played:

Itís Lady Maria. I wish I could fight her every time I put the game on.

This sounds like a genuine marketing gimmick that Sony would push in Japan.

Maria's such a blast to fight, so much so, that I didn't mind when during my first go at her she ganked me when I had her health down to but a sliver.


If this new FromSoft game is indeed Bloodborne 2, I hope they capitalize on the opportunity  to show us the Eastern side of the Soulsborne universe.

I assume you believe it's gonna be an Eastern setting based on the scribbling and ambient sounds from the teaser.

Many people seem to be convinced that those are clear indicators, which also prompted them to believe From might be planning to revive Tenchu out of the blue, but I wouldn't be so sure. That teaser was way too short to draw any conclusions as to the overall setting of the world; for all we know what happens there might be something completely isolated, but I wouldn't mind if they did indeed build a game centred on the "far Eastern land".

My contract was officialized and I'm finally a Hunter! :guts: (I'm a Lone Survivor with the saw and blunderbuss =)

First impressions:
It was a little awkward for me at first because of the ways it's different from Souls, even though I can clearly see how DS3's engine was retrofitted from it, but once I started getting used it I could see why people are so into it. Combat, done effectively, is faster but well nuanced, particularly how you manage the timing of attacks, gun blasts and stamina. You can't play defensive, but you have to constantly engage and withdraw effectively. If you just try to R1 them to death you're going to end up a sitting duck (removing this fearure from DS3 was a step back that made it easier). Basically, it looks like this game is the evolution people that only had the opportunity to play DS3 were looking for.

Yharnam is great do far too, I haven't even fought a boss yet but I've been up and down the city and it reminds of the exploration previously unique to DS1, that trapped behind enemy lines feeling where you feel surrounded and really have to decide when it's better to push forward or fall back. I've already lost thousands of Blood Echos because of the different mode of retrieval, having to clear the area of enemies or even a particular enemy that posseses them (no smash and grab cheating =).

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