  • Is Bloodborne the next-gen Souls you've been waiting for?

    I'd just ignore him, he did the same with TLOU.

    do you really believe that graphics should come before making sure the game has responsive controls and is tear/judder free, as they currently do?
    But how many games are unresponsive that they are unplayable?

    And the graphics depend on the context of the game, does a Mario game need super realistic graphics? Do we need to be able to see the crows feet under Mario's eyes? The answer for both of them are no.

    But would many gamers be able to lose themselves in the world of TLOU if it was plain and minimal levels? Would they feel like they are Batman in Gotham if it was a flat background



    vs



    Now of course Arkham Knight is on PC, but I am still looking forward to the PS4 version as I love the gameplay, the story and how well the whole game is made.

    I will be honest, I very rarely notice many issues the PC gamers and DF point out unless they are really obvious, so maybe thats one of the reason why FPS never really bothers we.

    Framerate is not more important than a game having great gameplay, story etc yet those things ARE needed to make a great game.

    TLOU on PS3 won hundreds of GOTY awards despite performance issues etc.

    All games would be improved some way or another with 60fps and 1080p. However the idea that a game HAS to have it to be great is something only fanboys believe.

    So now review are not a true reflection.

    Keep moving the goal posts, Bloodborne is a great game despite not having 60fps and 1080p... It's almost as if most reviews focus on if a game is fun first.

    Where did I say it couldn't run on a PC.

    I have explained the reasons why it being exclusive is not anti gamer, but if you fail to see that then maybe you should look at your own faults before calling other people "fuckwits".

    Exclusives are needed to keep compition on consoles healthy. Without them the console model of business would die.

    The console business dies, gamers have less choice.

    And I like how you act like Nintendo fans are all connoisseur of gaming. Let's face it, Nintendo games don't push games visually like most gaming studios do, so getting 1080p and 60fps on a "weak sauce" (something you slate the other two for might I add) when the games are just 3D drawings is not exactly hard is it?

    But not of that explains why it's not anti gamer for Nintendo games to be exclusive.

    But it is for Sony games.

    Which was you know, the whole point of my comment, as I am yet to see such a mental break down from our PC gods where they swarm all over any related article saying the same about any Nintendo exclusive.

    Oh and for the record I am loving BB, even with it's faults and any gamer who puts Resolution and FPS over fun is not a gamer imo.

    Just saying.

    I never said you did..

    "ut even as cheap as they are I'm not buying a system for one fucking game!"

    You see now THIS I fully understand and have respect for.

    I'm guessing that if in 3/4 years time the PS4 has 10/12 games on level of Bloodborne you would be more open to the idea.

    It's those who won't even make that compromise that makes me laugh, and rather than having a imo heathy attitude like yours, they claim it being exclusive as being anti gamer.

    That makes 0 sense, there isn't any more chance of Bloodborne coming to the PC than a Nintendo game.

    In the 20 years Sony have be around not one of their owned IPs have gone to PC.

    So I don't ger how Nintendo games are any less likely.

    Exactly there were exclusives before. Do you call Nintendo anti gamer?

    I have a feeling not.

    And who went to From to make Demon Souls?

    Sony who where a fans of the original exclusive games they made on PSone...

    And asked them to make a game like that?

    Also your compassion to a fridge is both stupid and not even close to what this is like.

    For starters fridges are not sold to sell ketchup.

    Without exclusives there would be no way for a console to set itself apart from any other platform meaning most likely that consoles would no longer exsist.

    Meaning less choice for gamers.

    How is having console makers pumping money into to the industry a bad thing.

    Take Dark Souls for example, it was only because someone at Sony asked From to make Demon Souls that Dark Souls was made possible.

    How is that anti gamer?

    Actually you are right to disagree I am being a little harsh, I personally did not enjoy the game at all, I completed it to give it a fair shot, but it did nothing for me.

    To say it is a bad game was wrong, just for me despite the graphics and fps I just didn't enjoy the game.

    Because every gamer, no matter what platform should want to play games for fun.

    A game that has shit and gameplay can still have 1080p and 60fps, in fact I have played one, Crysis. Amazing looking game but nothing else.

    And I appreciate good performance, but fun should be first, and if a game has good (not amazing) performance (what the DF video its not like Bloodborne is a complete mess) but does everything else amazingly well, then surely that is most important?

    Also don't feel sorry for me, I can play any game no matter how it runs and enjoy it as long as it is fun, I have no reason for anyone to feel sorry for me :)

    @TheApologist

    I make an argument that generally applies whoever owns the platform. I comment here because the game is good. Not because it is Sony if that's what you mean to imply. I own Sony consoles. :)
    And yet I don't see you on the likes of Sunset Overdrive or Monster Hunter saying the same.

    It doesn't logically follow that each platform should have exactly the same version, no. And I have never suggested they should. It would be technically impossible to achieve I suspect, and no one would want it.
    Why not? If it's not fair for one platform to have a game others do not, then why is it fair for one platform to have advantages over another? And surely coding to the lowest common denominator would mean more sales and a wider audience? And would it not also end the stupid fanboys war? If everyone's games are the same then there is no bickering.

    And no, it isn't bad for gaming to have some versions better than the other. On PC, games scale up and down to allow players with different hardware to enjoy a version of the game that they can run. This is good. Variety is good! Choice is good! Exclusives limit choice. That is bad.
    But don't exclusives also add variety? I mean look at the PS4, it has a similar library to the X1 and PC, yet Bloodborne gives it choice and variety.

    Being able to choose is exclusive to PC, so that limits choice, so not having a locked PC version is, by your logic bad.

    @TheApologist

    Do you make the same comments on every Nintendo, MS and PC exclusive?

    And since you want all games to be on the same platform, to be fair, wouldn't it also be fair to have all version exactly the same? And same price? Why should the PC version be allowed to be the best version despite publishers charging console gamers more?

    Isn't that also bad for gaming? Having one version better than another simply because of the platform?

    Nothing, but it's not the point, the fact it isn't.

    So it's time those who are crying get over it rather then make out that it's a crime to be exclusive or the game isn't as good as it is because it's not multiplatform.

    It is the best version, unless you are claiming that From have not done the best they can with the tools they have?

    And again its getting amazing reviews, so that to me says that they have made a great games and have done everything done you need to make a great game.

    http://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-4/bloodborne

    A 93 score suggests that this game is great, even without 60fps and 1080p.

    Anyone who fails to see this is someone I pitty.

    Also the performance isn't even that bad. 6 frame drop and in DF's own words

    "genuine drops are infrequent"

    So it's performance isn't that bad.

    But it is the best possible version, this game has been and always will be a playstation exclusive.

    And as I said frame rate and resolution don't make a game great, gameplay, story, and design do.

    Design, gameplay, and story make a game. And none of them would change regardless of platform.

    "Bloodborne on their system as opposed to Bayonetta 2 that nobody wanted -except- Nintendo."

    There is 0 proof that Sony or MS turned this down.

    And before you quote the "we went to publishers" they didn't say who so that is not really proof that either of them turned it down.

    Unless they have now revealed who they went to?

    But yet here it is with the highest award that EG can give a game.

    It's that good, that it doesn't need 1080p and 60fps, and if you are unable to appriciate it and enjoy it for what it is. Then maybe gaming isn't for you?

    That's why I'd call them gamers in the most lose term possible.

    I get how 1080p and 60fp can benefit the experience of a game.

    But when you refuse to play a game in a series that you claim to love because it does not have this them then you don't love that series enough.

    I feel sorry for those people who claim to be gamers, yet would be unable to enjoy this game due to it not being 1080p and 60fps.

    When you are unable to have fun with a game without these, then imo you miss the purpose of gaming, that is to have fun.

    This game is clearly a great game despite its faults.

  • Bloodborne walkthrough and game guide

  • Mr-Writer 28/03/2015

    I have been stuck for a while and just as I got to breaking point I went on a run, unlocked another area, got about 4000 souls, got to the first boss (that's how much I've struggled) and went straight back to level up.

    Not been near the boss yet, but have now found my rhythm and levelling up quite a bit.

    No doubt at some point I will hit the wall again, but I love how just as I was near breaking point I've gotten something right, and whilst it's still not easy, I'm enjoying the game.

    It happens on a bank holiday (eg next week) and if you are signed in at any point up to 2 days before you can still play games.

    In fact I have failed to do that and still got on.

    Maybe its my internet, but other than Christmas attacks I have yet to have PSN fail on me yet in any way shape or form.

    Tbf I think they will add folders at some point.

    I think Yoshida came out late last year and said that they already have a road map of what will be added to the PS4 updates.

    The likes of Share Play and Suspend and Resume were promised at the reveal so they clearly took priorty.

    I don't think anything else from that reveal is left now, so they should add more stuff that people want in future updates.

    I didn't say Sony haven't learned some lessons off MS, I just pointed out that the lessons learned for the PS4 were mostly likely from their own history.

    Providing a paid for online service, party chat, background downloading are three things off the top of my head that MS did first and that Sony followed suit, and I for one I'm glad they did.

    I am a huge fan of Plus, but I doubt it would of been created if Live had not been created.

    Do not confuse me for someone who hates MS simply because I dont own an X1 or wank myself silly over every little thing they do like you.

    I have no hard feelings towards them I just don't have the time to own more than one console.

    I would say the PS3 slim which meant cheaper price and also great games like Uncharted 2, had more to do with the PS3's improving standing last gen then anything to do with MS.

    Unless its people reminding you of the lessons Sony taught MS? That is not as much fun for you is it ;)

    That's not what he is saying, he is trolling and claiming Sony would be even slower, when in truth Sony have claimed that the reason for the slow down was due to feedback.

    Now YOU have a point that MS have been better, but there is nothing to suggest that if MS hadn't been so much quicker then Sony would be slower than they are.

    Hahaha I am taking nothing personal.

    As for telling me to lighten up. I'm not the one on an Internet forum crying because my games consoles doesn't have loads of media support.

    I have no need for media support I use the Plex app to watch all my TV and Films from my NAS drive, and in the next few days Spotify is being added so all my media needs are met :)

    I of course want more options for other gamers, as just because it meets my needs doesn't mean it meets everyone's.

    But if the consoles doesn't meet your expectations then imo you shpuldnt of bought it until it did or bought one that did..

    Oh and Sony announced a month before release suspend and resume wouldn't be at launch.

    Oh and fyi Google is really easy use and very

    It's most likely because he slagged off Playstation Plus for some time and claimed it was a rip off as you don't own the games..

    I think he also made a claim about never subscribing to such a service, or something to that effect.

    Much like his claim of he wouldn't buy a next gen console that didn't have BC (when it was announced by Sony that the PS4 would not be BC) he of course had to change his tune when it was announced that unlike the 360 games, you have stay subbed to Live to access your X1 games.

    However that's not to say it's a valid reason to mind you.

  • Is Bloodborne the best game ever, or just the second best?

  • Mr-Writer 26/03/2015

    @erasr

    No not to play it, to buy it, you see when you have a wife, a child who's nursery alone costs 780 a month, on top of mortgage, bills, food and cloths, days out with the family and of course my season ticket, it's hard to justfy blowing money on lots of games.

    Of course being in a stable and loving marriage means joint income. And I believe it would be wrong of me to go spending that money without at least consulting my wife.

    When I say beg that is what some like to call a slight exaggeration. I did inform her that it was something I was very keen on purchasing and after agreeing that as a thank you for letting me spend 40 on a game that she should also spend 40 on something she wants as a treat.

    This may not be how all marriages work, but that's how ours work. But it works for us and we are happy, and so is our son
