At least you haven't wasted money on it when you bounce off it again. Wink

Continuing from the PS4 thread . . .

It would be nice to hear how you get on with each of the boss battles. There are some really good ones in there as you would expect.

I've done:
Cleric Beast:
 
Father Gascoigne:
 
Blood-starved beast:
 
Vicar Amelia:
 

I'm now at an interesting point where I've got like 4 different options what to do next. I can keep going down to Charnel Lane, I got an item that says I can apparently go to the Hunter's Nightmare, I can to an unseen village with a jail that a wizard sent me to or I think I can start doing Chalice Dungeons.

Vicar Amelia gave me issues as well for the reasons you stated. Father Gascoigne is a top tier boss for sure, the sort where you don't mind him besting you for a while because it feels like you're learning something not only about his skill set, but your own as well.

I think the blood starved beast gave me some problems. I stubbornly refuse to get summon help haha. It's a good fight though, a bit like one of those aggressive and relentless monsters you find over in monster hunter.

In the first Dark Souls I used a bit of summons my first time through but I've gone back and beaten everything solo. II and III I finished without summoning.

This is my first time playing Bloodborne so I'm dabbling a little in everything. I don't see myself summoning much because I don't fully understand Insight yet and I don't want to waste any.

I've done a few more.
Witch of Hemwick:
 
Shadows of Yarnham:
 
All the Chalice stuff up to Pthumerian Descendant:
 
Darkbeast Paarl:
 

Still liking it, particularly when I trust my instincts and play aggressively like the game wants me to.

Aye, the Chalice dungeons were a nice idea that could've been improved on a fair bit but despite that I still have good memories of doing them in multiplayer with Andy as we mopped up stuff related to trophies.

Btw do you have the old hunters expansion with your copy?

I don't think I have the DLC. Is it as weird to access as the Dark Souls stuff?

Nah, you defeat one boss (which you've already done) collect an item off the messenger dudes in the dream hub area then go to the square area of Cathedral ward. It's definitely worth getting it as there are some cracking bosses/weapons in it and it just rounds off Bloodborne as whole really really well.

Yeah, Paarl was a bit weird. I remember seeing it the first time and getting my arse handed to me immediately, then coming back later and not taking any hits. Without spoilers I guess... I forget, do you actually need to beat it? I just recall it being in a weird place.

I've been playing a shitton of this lately and of course, it's been bloody brilliant. Great world design as always and I'm lapping up that atmosphere.

Paarl is optional, if I recall correctly. I fucking hated Paarl. Felt like I was grappling with the camera more than the boss - did it a bit early too, which didn't help.

I'm more or less finished with the base game, I think, so I'm tackling the DLC now. I can do a boss round up of what I've tackled, but conscious of spoilers for Buska if he cares about boss names.

Ah, just make them up for anonymity purposes. The Great Beast. The Blood Beast. Terrible Steve. The Grotesque Thing. The Beast Beast. Administrator Tony. FM Towns Marty.

Jesus Christ. I've found a grand total of like five hours to play this since you and I talked on Discord Laughing

I think I've heard most of their names bandied about so don't worry too much. Unless one of the bosses is, like, Punished Venom Solaire or something I don't think hearing the name Dessicated Bishop before I see him will hurt me.

I killed Amygdala last night, she was weirdly easy. I've had one encounter with Rom and although I feel I can probably beat him in one or two goes, he feels like a big deal so I want to wrap up Castle Cainhurst before I do that. At that point, I think beating Rom will be the only path available to me.

Whilst you're definitely right in that boss names don't give away too much in Souls, I much prefer this idea:

I'm tackling the Chalice Dungeons now, but I'm finding them a slog solo so Jas has offered to return to Yharnam and help me out with them. After that, it'll be the last couple of bosses and I'll be done!

That was a fun wee return to Yharnam in the last couple of days, most of our boss fights didn't really go past a handful of tries either. On my end everything was still there control/timing wise when fighting enemies but in that first session I did keep wanting to press X for roll/dodge and was bit confused using the menus/quick items.

What a game!

Indeed.

Finished this off this morning. I had a real run these last few days, got into my groove and powered through the last few areas and bosses.

I wouldn't say I'm done with the game - I'll pop into NG+ to investigate the Chalices, and I think I'll do another run one day to see another ending and tick off the DLC bosses.

But I am done for now; finished this more-or-less blind playthrough and ready to get stuck into pods and youtube and stuff.

Maybe it's too early to say, but right now I still have more affection for Dark Souls but it's a close thing. This came very close to matching it, and did some stuff considerably better. I just personally liked DaS's epic fantasy more than BB's horror trappings, and I value the impressively well-designed contiguous world of DaS more than BB's slicker moment-to-moment action.

That's good work Buska. You whizzed through that - Bloodborne took me blimmin' ages to do some of the bosses. And that was a blind playthrough as well!

Whereas I actually feel pretty slow because Jay swanned in and did it even faster in the middle of my playthrough Laughing
