 Bought a PS4 and PSN+ year subscription for just this game. Can't wait to get my hands on it later today. Only thing that concerns me is the lack of variety for PVP, but I like that From tried something different with this one, it looks different enough to feel refreshing for Souls vet.

At first I found Bloodborne to be quite harder than Demons/Dark Souls, but my opinion made a 180

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/2015/03/20/bloodborne-guide-spoiler-free-walkthrough/

What's the third boss for you? Depending on the path you take it can be one of two.

Ah yeah, it's tough. You can get an NPC summon to help you, by the way :) Check for the developer note near the top of the path down and ring the bell on top of it. Boss is weak to fire.

 

This bitch will probably be your 4th (gif will make more sense soon :p)

Why isn't your PS4 automatically updating these games?

 

Plus, 3 hours to download a 2Gb patch? What's wrong with your internet?

It never took that long... I guess that was an "Estimated" time frame.

 

But every time I play the game, I'm greeted with this message.  It's been happening since I got the 2.50 update.  Prior to the update, I was able to create a character, fight and fight that "Wolf Demon" thingy, and die...

 

Havent played the game since then...  

 

Every time I try, that's what I get...

 

All my other games auto update and work fine, that's the weird part... And I've also downloaded the game for a 2nd time (it deleted itself the first time)

Man that sucks, sorry to hear it.

Since the second deletion was not your doing (you said it deleted itself), I would go ahead and manually delete it yourself and see if the same thing still happens.

I know that sucks as well, but perhaps you initiating it, and it not doing all of this on its own, will force it to be a proper install so to speak.

If that does not work I would reach out to Sony for sure.

      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.
