Has someone who eagerly waited for this game played it? I know critics haven't been any good. But critics aren't everything and I wanted to know from a player's perspective, how did it go.

I played it at #EGX 2014, and then there was an alpha test open to the public which was the same demo. If you're at home with the Souls series it performs mechanically similar, but with a larger focus on attack than defence.

Figured it was time we made an official topic in time for release.

I'm not into the "Soul's type of games, but that was pretty nice...

Playing through Lords of the Fallen as the wait to the end of March is taking it's toll! It really is a poor mans Souls game, but it's enjoyable enough to warrant the price I picked it up for.

Boss battles are the highlights of the Souls series. A lot of fun in co-op. Co-Op does make some battles trivial, but that's usually after the fanbase has gotten techniques down to a tee for each of the bosses. I still fondly remember a massive amount of deaths in the first week of Dark Souls co-op on the Capra Demon.

From various GAF:

1) The Japanese Bloodborne site was updated today with a lot of new online play details.

Translated details per a banned site:

  • Co-op is still the same as in the network alpha, hosts use a Lulling Bell to request help and the game automatically matches them to a helper who has used the Small Resonant Bell (there are no summon signs in Bloodborne)
  • Co-op ends when a boss is defeated or the host or guests die, or the host uses Parting Shot on a guest
  • Players can create a "Watchword" of 8 characters that will allow them to co-op with only people who have the same Watchword. This does not work for PVP.
  • You can invade other people by using an Ominous Ringing Bell, the goal of invasion is to defeat the host.
  • Hosts can use Parting Shot to evict an invader, and invasions will also end if the invader dies or the host enters a boss area.
  • Some areas will have a Bell Maiden already present, and she lures invaders to your world.
  • The Bell Maiden may also appear when you request/begin co-op.
  • In the Chalice Dungeon you may see "illusions" of other players in the same part of the dungeon (this is different from the network test alpha where you could see illusions anywhere, this point implies they will only exist in CD).
  • You can click someone's Messenger tombstone to see how they died anywhere in the game.
  • You can click someone's Messenger notes to tongue but hole
  • There are 2 types of Chalice Dungeon: normal and generated.
  • You can only generate a dungeon online, but you can play either type online or offline.
  • You can share generated dungeons online.
  • PS+ is required for pvp/co-op, asynchronous features (notes/tombstones/phantoms), and sharing your Chalice Dungeon configuration. You can download patches and other people's Chalice Dungeon configurations without PS+.
  • There will be a Day One patch (improve performance/online gameplay usability).

2) According to an anonymous 4chan user's photo of the Bloodborne box, the minimum HDD size is 41GB.

First souls title to allow you to specifically choose who you co-op with!

Hosts can use Parting Shot to evict an invader, and invasions will also end if the invader dies or the host enters a boss area.

What does this mean?! If you get invaded you can shoot the invader to make them instantly leave your game?

Big spoilers (I'm not watching, on media and social media blackout), but here is a glimpse of the Chalice Dungeon/a Boss

 

 

This is a post detailing how the chalice dungeons work, it was removed from reddit for spoilers but saved in time. Again massive spoilers, and I haven't read it.

Gameplay shows it takes 40 seconds to reload after player death.

 

So don't die.

OMG IT'S BLOODBORNE DAY!!!

 

I'm totally leaving work early, woooooo!

 

Can the entire game be played in Co-Op?

 

I've been trying to find information in regards to this...

Yes, like every souls game before it you can play the whole thing co-op. It's even easier to do so in Bloodborne due to the passcode system they implemented.
