Bloodborne Platinum!


I’ll be writing up a review proper for this game soon. But I wanted to chat about this a bit seeing as I just finished and I haven’t posted something for today. Bloodborne is a very attractive game at a distance. From Software does an interesting job with creating their own unique style. It feels very sharp and silvery even when its supposed to be flesh and blood. I can dig it, I like when people have their own schtick.

The main story fights are largely cool. There are a few shit ones, just about any time the bosses get bigger than you the fight is mostly a wash. Not necessarily hard but the camera in this game is awful. It was designed by the lord of lies, Belial in the flesh. You will die more to your camera than any other foe in the game. If you are going to play this game I can’t recommend the DLC enough. It’s just amazing. While I have lukewarm feelings towards the game as a whole I’ve got very positive feelings for the DLC. It was an exceptional experience that was well worth the 20 dollars for me.

That’s probably the best DLC outside of Cities: Skylines that I’ve ever seen. It’s a testament to what can be done with this business model. Conversely the Chalice Dungeons are one of the worst things that can be done for free. But I’ll talk about it in more detail later this week. Maybe give myself a day or two to mellow out from it. Play some Undertale and Disney Infinity.
