Ebrietas down, landing a visceral attack when she was about to get into the last stage made all the difference :D

 

Congrats, it's a good feeling finally taking that bitch down.

I'm finding a noticeable difference in PvP compared to Dark Souls, which I can't say if it's a good or bad thing.

 

I suck at PvP in DS games. I've never been into it and didn't even try to be prepared for it. Pretty much every single time I was invaded I was raped by some naked guy dancing around my heavy armoured character.

I even sometimes played offline just to not be bothered with that.

 

In Bloodborne I suck too, but it'd seem that most other people suck even more than I do. I've been invaded a lot in Nightmare Frontier and Mensis Nightmare, and so far have only died once  :huh:

 

Maybe it's just that PvP in Bloodborne plays almost the same as the rest of the game, while in DS you needed a completely different approach.

I said that I don't know if that's a good thing because if, while not liking PvP, I haven't felt the urge to play offline, maybe that means that PvP is not actually fun for those that like it?

 

There's certainly a lot less to do when invading. You can't troll people activating traps (like those spiked bridges in DS), no magic (mostly) and there are very few different fighting styles. Different weapons, yeah, but not that many and not all that different in PvP.

Now I have to decide if I go back to playing Bloodborne or check out The Witcher 3 (rented the latter from GameFly and it arrived today).

I will only have 1 night to play before I leave for vacation, but my plan is to stay up all night playing whichever game I do play as I leave to catch my plane at 4 AM. If I stay up until 4 I should be able to sleep on the entire plane ride.

So yeah, I am leaning towards going back to Bloodborne. I feel like it might be the better game to play delirious.  :s  :laugh:

 Good to know, some welcome changes such as chunks and hopefully they make getting items for making chalice dungeons less of a chore.

If that means, as it seems, that you can now play with friends regardless of what level each player has, that would be incredibly cool.

It's on sale for $40 on Amazon which should push anyone off the fence that is still considering getting it.

My brother and I tested it yesterday. It's definitely true. Prior to the last patch, matchmaking following the "+/-10 + 10%" rule, which we tested thoroughly. Yesterday we tested summoning each other, in both directions, when we were way outside that range; and, it worked like a charm. It also feels like they sped up the connection times again too, which is always a plus.

 

We finished the defiled chalice and all other non-root chalice dungeons yesterday except for the Great Pthumeru Ilyll chalice. It requires a reagent we haven't seen yet. So I guess it's on to Mensis. Feels like we're almost done.

 

It's been taking us a while to get through the game, because we're only playing an hour or two every few days. He has been finishing up his semester and I've been rather busy at work. Either way, the amount of content in this game is amazing; especially compared to the "AAA" norm. So good.

Never got to play before I left for vacation. I'm in Mexico and not many English speaking channels on the TV in the hotel. The one that is is HBO Plus and they have run a little 7 or so minute vignette about Bloodborne itself. Besides the host calling the chalice dungeons "chapter" dungeons it is really interesting to see how they handle marketing outside of the US and they really make it look amazing. So much game play I've never seen on any other marketing. Really made me excited to get back to playing it once I get back home.

Would be cool to see that, I'll have a search on YT!
