Thanks for this. (Y)

I have not been able to play at all since I last posted (okay truth be told I played the Fast and The Furious Forza Horizon game released on the One, mentally I think I needed a break from Bloodborne), but I already completed it so I am back to playing Bloodborne next time I do play, which depending on how much wine my wife keeps drinking may be a bit later tonight. :punk:

 Finally passed first boss, it was a pretty challenging first level mostly due to the werewolves. Some DS skills are actually counter-productive in this game. When you get hit in DS, you are better off retreating before stunlocks, here it's better to fight back to regain health. I also keep pressing triangle for dual wielding and it uses my blood vials, it's like muscle memory now. 

 

 The parries actually feel satisfying and are not as abuse-able as I thought they would be. I don't miss the backstabs from DS. The combat feels satisfying, which makes it feel better than DkS2. The lack of shield really forces a different approach. Overall feels very solid and satisfying.

You can backstab. You need to do a charged R2 attack to stun then immediately push R1.

 

Just noticed the Polygon Bloodborne review is up, 9/10

I cancelled my trade in.

Not this week but next my wife is going away on a business trip for 3 days. That means I have at least 2 nights of gaming to myself (1 night I have already been asked to dog sit for someone, so will have my hands filled there).

So yeah, Bloodborne time no doubt. (Y)

Just watched the whole thing. Thanks AB, really was helpful, especially the latter half. (Y)

 

I am honestly determined to master this game, and have decided it may take months to do so.

In fact I believe I am even contemplating preordering the strategy guide, but all I can find is one for the Collectors Edition. Is there supposed to be a normal one do you know AM?

The hardback version is the only one available for now.

This might help you as well http://www.vg247.com...ee-walkthrough/
