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.

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.

 

 

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

 

 

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!

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.

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.

      Here are the biggest games from THQ Nordic's September 2021 showcase
      by Asher Madan

      On Friday, publisher THQ Nordic hosted its first-ever digital showcase where it revealed a slew of new games and provided gameplay footage for others. While more than half a dozen titles were highlighted, we're going to focus on the major releases like Destroy All Humans 2 - Reprobed and SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake. You can learn more about them below.

      Destroy All Humans! 2 - Reprobed
      Destroy All Humans! 2 - Reprobed was leaked a few days ago by PlayStation and many gamers assumed that it was a PlayStation 5 exclusive. Luckily, that's not the case and it's coming to Microsoft's platforms as well.

      Destroy All Humans! 2 - Reprobed is in development for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. It doesn't seem like it's coming to last-generation consoles.

      Elex II
      Elex II is coming to last-generation and current-generation consoles. It should be available on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X.

      Outcast 2: A New Beginning
      Outcast 2: A New Beginning was announced a while back, and it's currently in development for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. The in-engine gameplay trailer finally showcases the visuals we can expect from the project.

      SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake
      SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake is coming to PC, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One soon.

      Which games stood out for you during the showcase? Let us know in the comments below!

      Sony-owned Nextorage releases M.2 NVMe SSDs that can be used with the PS5
      by Karthik Mudaliar

      Nextorage, the Sony-owned subsidiary, has launched an SSD that can be used with the PlayStation 5. This comes a few days after Sony officially announced support for expansion through the M.2 solid state drive slot on the PS5. The new series of Nextorage NEM-PA PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 NVMe SSDs are available in both 1 TB and 2 TB capacities.

      The performance of the 2 TB unit is slightly higher than the 1 TB one. For the 2 TB unit, the sequential read/write speeds are up to 7,300/6,900 MB/s respectively while the random read/write speed can reach up to 1 million IOPS. As far as longevity is concerned, the 2 TB version is rated for 1,400 Terabytes Written (TBW). There is 2 GB of DDR4 RAM for caching needs.

      7,300 / 6,000 MB/s

      750,000 / 1,000,000 IOPS

      700 TB

      The 1 TB unit offers a sequential read/write speed of up to 7,300/6,000 MB/s meanwhile the random read speed is rated at 750,000 IOPS and the write speed is the same as that of the 2 TB unit at 1 million IOPS. For longevity, the 1 TB unit is rated for 700 TBW.

      Both the units come with an aluminum heatsink. This is on par with Sony's requirements for installing the PS5's SSD. Once installed, players can use the expanded storage to download, copy and launch both PS4 and PS5 games as well as other media apps on the PlayStation 5. Players can also move games and apps freely between the internal and external storage options.

      Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake PS5 and PC timed exclusivity confirmed
      by Asher Madan

      During the PlayStation September 2021 Showcase, Sony revealed that it was working with Aspyr — the team that's ported a lot of old Star Wars games to modern consoles lately — including Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake. Despite the overwhelming excitement for the project, there was some confusion about whether the game was a timed exclusive. The main question was if it would end up on other consoles aside from PlayStation 5 (PS5).

      The terms "Launch Exclusive" and "Console Launch Exclusive" were thrown around, but it's unclear what they really mean. Luckily, Tully Ackland, the Senior Game Designer of the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake, answered that question. A few days ago on Twitter, Ackland confirmed that it's a "timed exclusive for PS5 and PC". This means it'll come to other devices eventually. Ackland didn't discuss other platforms it'd be available on, but we're hoping it hits Xbox Series X|S down the line.

      Typically, timed exclusivity lasts around a year. Just look at Rise of the Tomb Raider as an example. Keep in mind that Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake is still very early in development so we'll probably have to wait many years to get our hands on it. Given the fact that COVID-19 is still affecting how everyone works, there's no way to ascertain an accurate timeline.

      Back 4 Blood gets long-awaited campaign trailer
      by Asher Madan

      Back 4 Blood is the spiritual successor to Left 4 Dead, a zombie shooter that's regarded as a cult classic nowadays. It's coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 on October 21, 2021. While we've seen a lot about the multiplayer portions of the game, we didn't know much about the story until today.

      Developer Turtle Rock Studios recently released a trailer for the game that gives us a better look at what to expect from the co-op campaign. Back 4 Blood seems like a B-movie that takes itself too seriously, but, luckily, the story allows for the opportunity to slay a lot of zombies. You can watch it below.

      The infection in Back 4 Blood was caused by a parasitic worm and now the individuals who are immune are fighting back. It seems like a town is besieged by the undead and it's up to you and your team to neutralize the threat.

      Back 4 Blood will be available on Xbox Game Pass at launch as well. You can also purchase it through the Microsoft Store or the platform of your choice, starting at $59.99. The Deluxe and Ultimate editions give you early access and the expansion pass.
