Nah I knew about the existence of the lock on mechanic, I did read the game mechanics tips in the Hunters Dream, saw the one video you posted the other day for Beginners, even saw in the options there is a gameplay option to where it will either automatically go to the next enemy or not, I guess I just did not know how important it was. I never use it in other games if it is an option, so it will just be a matter of making myself do something I never do otherwise. Who knows maybe I will be even better once I start using it. LOL

 

Shortcut you say to skip the wolves on the bridge? Hmmm, it must be either back by the fountain with the crows or even before that. I need to check it out, those wolves were/are a bitch.

 

A tip is to always break barrels/wooden crates for side paths ;)

 

You're wanting to head doooown.

More and more rumors flying about a PC version coming later this year. You could wait till then. Personally, the game is pretty good in my opinion. I wouldn't have the patience to wait for the PC release. I <3 my PS4.

That would be nice. I don't plan to buy a next gen console anytime soon anyway. Next winter probably. I still have around five 360 games to finish :p I'll wait for 4-5 must play titles sold at a reduced price ;) I must admit though that since i owned a 360 and not an PS3 it makes those re-mastered titles on PS4 tempting (Last of US and Journey). Helldivers looks really nice too. Still gonna wait though to see what the new management at MS will do with the Xbox One cause i like what they are doing with Windows 10 so far. Can't own more than one console because of my other half so must not do a mistake XD

IGN ran a story from an Amazon listing error. The same Amazon who once had a listing for MGS4 360.

Sony own this IP, its not going anywhere but the PS4. PC only gamers can sign as many petitions as they want. They may as well start them for Uncharted and Gran Turismo.

Well, the PC has been getting a lot of love lately, so I wouldn't be surprised. Windows 10 might be a pretty good OS, but I still can't be broken free from my Mac...though it's not gamer friendly.

5 bosses down now. The level design is simply outstanding.

 

You can tell Miyazaki was fully charge of Demons Souls, Dark Souls 1 and this versus Dark Souls 2.

What a difference two days makes. I just cruised through downtown Yarnham and opened up the shortcut first attempt.

AB, should I upgrade the cane if that is the weapon I am using? I have 3 Blood Stone Shards.

Bloodborne seems to have disappeared from my PS4 recent games played bar.

 

The Mini Soundtrack remains.

 

I go to My Library, and its showing the download arrow.  Kinda confusing considering I downloaded the WHOLE game

 

I click to re-download the game, and it seems that I now miraculously re-download a 2.688GB and a 5.037GB patch for Bloodborne.

 

Am I missing something here?

 

Or is this the 2.50 system update rearing its ugly head...

I have the disk based version and am not having any issues, and do have 2.50 installed. Have not seen anyone else mention it elsewhere either. That 5.037 GB update patch is particularly odd as there is no such patch afaik.

 

Ironically I was actually just coming into the thread to say how awesome the 2.50 update was because of the Suspend/Resume feature, especially with a game like Bloodborne since it does not have a pause feature. I went back to the Hunters Garden, suspended the game, started up the PS4 about an hour later and it went straight to the game. That is glorious.

Yeah for sure. The more damage the better. Those shards are plentiful in supply, and at one point they become available to buy.

Eurogamer finally posted their review

 

Imaginative, powerful and coherent, Bloodborne is genius.
 
Essential
 
The fact is that few other studios in the world can match what From Software is doing in big-budget games. Director Hidetaka Miyazaki is possessed of a rare talent, an all-encompassing design sensibility capable of tying everything that matters - aesthetics, narrative, sound and mechanical design - together in a manner where each feeds into and enhances the others. The structure underlying Bloodborne is not just original but coherent, and because of this the impact of everything it does is commensurately greater. This is total design. It feels wonderful to have a world like this and, over a week of solid play later, feel that there's so much more to discover. And it's awful to know that, in all likelihood, it will be a painfully long time until I play anything else that matches up to Bloodborne's breadth of vision, generosity of content, and - yes - genius.

AB is completely right Larry. Upgrade your favorite weapon as often as you can. Upgrade materials are easy to come by as your progress further into the game.

That is weird but I was curious why you were seeing this, from my Google Search I think that is the preload download. So yeah, I think 2.50 definitely did something weird for sure. Hopefully it is resolved after this.

Thanks. I am going to do it next time I play. Game is currently suspended at The Hunters Dream with the shortcut open. (Y)

I believe I am keeping it now, but just like the comic, I reserve the right to change my mind at any time!!  :rofl:

DL, is the new suspend feature working for you? I'm too scared to try it, because rest mode has never worked for me.

 

(I mean, it DOES work...my ps4 goes to sleep, and comes back just fine. However, sometimes there are issues connecting to games and the store after coming back that don't fix themselves until a full reboot.)

So to anyone playing it, as I said, I did unlock the first shortcut, so my question is where should I go?

Should I go down the stairs to the left, and take on those two big bastards?

Or should I go through the house and upstairs to those stairs, and go to the left on the bridge?

I want to try to possibly avoid using a walkthrough at least for now, but I am not above asking for some help or advice.

Yep has worked for me so far, but granted I have only used it for Bloodborne. But on 3 different occasions. Once just to check it out, then 2 times during the course of last night. Worked no issues all 3 times.

 

EDIT - Btw, Locking On to the enemy does make a pretty damn big difference. Yeah, big difference.

Not really a glitch, just big enemies :p

 

That area is mid game material anyway. You can end up there unexpectedly by a "secret" way, which is quite cool. Happened to me randomly. Was quite low level so I had to sprint out. But yeah, by the time most people get there 7,000 echoes in 7 minutes is poo :p Much more useful for farming a few shards.

 

My current build, level 54

 

Vit - 24

End - 20

Str - 10

Skl - 25

Bt - 10

Arcane - 15

 

Using twinblades, cane and repeater pistol. Strength was 9 by default, but I bumped it up to 10 for the pistol.

 

Started working through some chalice dungeons, pretty cool. Gives us an endgame (besides NG+). Hope the loading patch makes it out fairly soon, maybe by the time I'm ready for NG+. The loads do start to get on your nerves.

An FYI I read on Kotaku

 

 

 

Bloodborne players, make sure you don't summon or invade anyone during the game's Forbidden Woods section! Right now, doing so will prevent you from acquiring a crucial progression item, the Lunarium Key. Sony says a patch is coming next week.

I'll just say that going up through the house and then left on the bridge will shortly let you make a more informed decision.

Luckily I got that key without issue.

 

There's a really tough enemy near the key, I'm not surprised people try summoning. I quickly grabbed the key then led the enemy outside to fight. Died quite a few times trying mind you.

 

For something cool, try bowing, waving or clapping at the doll :)

The Bloodborne drinking game.

 

http://kotaku.com/i-have-created-a-bloodborne-drinking-game-1694145267

 

gsadl7ifbabyjlxki0tm.jpg

Anyway, here we go:

  • If you die, take three drinks.
  • If someone who doesn't like or play Souls games kills any single enemy, take a drink.
  • If you use a health vial, take a drink.
  • If you use your gun, take two drinks.
  • If you pull off a visceral attack, everyone else takes a drink.
  • If you reach a new lamp, everyone has to finish their drink.
  • If you fall off of a ledge, take a shot.
  • Alternate: if an enemy falls off a ledge, assign a shot to someone else.
  • If you throw a molotov cocktail, it's a waterfall. (That means the person who threw the molotov starts drinking, then the next person starts drinking, all the way down the line. You cannot stop drinking until the person in front of you is done. Good luck!)
  • If you defeat a boss, everyone has to take a shot of the victor's choosing.

      Cyberpunk 2077 is back on the PlayStation Store, but with a warning for PS4 players
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Over six months after being ejected from the PlayStation Store, Cyberpunk 2077 has now returned, finally giving back PlayStation players the choice of purchasing it digitally. Sony pulled out the CD Projekt RED-developed game from its store only a week after the launch as major gameplay and performance issues became apparent, especially on old-gen base consoles.

      The developer has so far released a multitude of updates to the game across all platforms aimed at improving stability, performance, and fixing scores of bugs. The latest major update, Patch 1.23, landed only last week with another serving of fixes.

      While Sony has deemed the game ready to be let back into the PlayStation Store, there is still a warning attached for prospective buyers. Both CD Projekt RED and Sony have stated the base PlayStation 4 will experience performance issues with Cyberpunk 2077, and the PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation 5 are the recommended systems for playing. Updates will continue to drop with more optimizations.

      CD Projekt RED is also developing a dedicated next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077, alongside a Witcher 3 upgrade, and that is still slated to land sometime in the second half of 2021. All current owners of the game on Xbox and PlayStation consoles will receive the upgrade for free.

      With the leaked build and the event coming on the 24th things are getting interesting once more.

      Cyberpunk 2077 is coming back to Sony's PlayStation Store on June 21
      by Subir Kathuria



      CD Projekt S.A., the parent company of Cyberpunk 2077 developer has announced in a regulatory filing that the game would be re-listed on Sony’s PlayStation Store on June 21. Sony has agreed to reinstate the game more than six months after it was removed on December 17, 2020, due to crippling issues with gameplay, primarily on the old-gen consoles.



      In a statement to Polygon, Sony said the following regarding the game's return:

      Cyberpunk 2077 went to sell over 13.7 million copies before the end of 2020 despite its controversial launch. While Sony removed the game from its store and gave refunds to players, Microsoft instead kept the listing and offered refunds without any questions, and also added a warning label for Xbox One players. Due to the issues, an investor even sued CD Projekt for making false claims and releasing it in an unfinished state

      Some of the launch issues ranged from the game not utilizing all cores of AMD's Ryzen CPUs to 8MB save file limits which corrupted save games files. Later, CD Projekt Red delayed promised DLC's and vowed to fix the issues with the game first, and has since released multiple major bug fixing updates.

      Sony announces Airpeak S1 drone tailored for its Alpha series cameras
      by Chandrakant Isi



      Sony has just introduced its professional drone dubbed the Airpeak S1. As per the Japanese company, the Airpeak S1 is the world's smallest drone that can fly with a full-size mirrorless Alpha camera onboard.

      The drone is equipped with a proprietary motor and a 17" propeller for stable flight even during windy conditions. Sony claims that the drone has a lightweight yet sturdy body. The Airpeak has a maximum speed of 55 miles per hour (90km/h). It can withstand wind speeds of up to 44.7mph.

      It uses image sensors, Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), barometric pressure, and infrared ranging to optimize the flight path. There's an Electric Speed Controller (ESC) for high maneuverability and an obstacle detection system to avoid mishaps.

      The Airpeak S1 is compatible with Sony's Alpha 7S series, Alpha 7R series, and the Alpha 9 series. The latest Alpha 1 capable of shooting footage in 8k is also compatible with this drone.



      Sony's Airpeak Base web application enables users to create flight plans and check the vitals of the drone before the next flight. Sony claims that it is possible to make the drone fly along a predetermined route without real-time input. Customers can use the Android and iOS companion app to track the drone, check battery status, and even access gimbal settings. The drone offers a dual operation mode that enables one user to control the drone while the other operates the camera.

      The Airpeak S1 drone is priced at $9,000 and will ship to customers in the fall of 2021. The retail package includes an additional set of propellers. However, users will have to purchase a gimbal separately. As per Sony, the drone is made in Japan and comes with an Airpeak Protect Plan, which covers accidental damage.
