Bloodborne Purchasing decision help!



  • I guess it depends on what you didn't like about Demon's/Dark Souls. If the setting or lore of Bloodborne is more appealing and interesting to you then it may be worth trying. However aside from quicker combat, most of the mechanics and gameplay are very similar to the Souls games (especially 3)



  • My personal opinion is BUY IT ! It's my favorite game of all times, but it's really hard to recommend this type of game to someone I don't know.. It's pretty cheap these days though, so ultimately I'd say give it a change.



  • If you can't get into the Souls games I doubt you'll like Bloodborne, as I feel the same way. I'd borrow a copy if anything, buying it would be a waste of cash.



  • @th0r44 I'll parrot @SabotageTheTruth and say that I dislike the Souls game but I love Bloodborne. I certainly didn't dislike the idea of Dark souls or the setting, but never got the combat. Bloodborne though was faster and gelled with me. So maybe try it out if the idea of faster combat appeals to you.



  • I too am in the Bloodborne is aces while the Souls games are poop camp!

    Bloodborne takes the good stuff from the Souls games and refines it while adding a whole host of different awesome stuff on top of it.



  • I have read of people like you (and myself) enjoyed BB despite not caring for any of the DS games.

    I want to try it, but its going to have to be $10 or less. Since there is no demo, I don't want to drop too much on a game I might not like



  • anyone know where in LA there is a good place to find bloodborne game of the year edition for a ok price ?



  • Ok guys you've convinced me. I'll definately give it a shot here soon. I don't really have any friends nearby that have it to borrow from sadly so I might as well just buy it at $20 vs. renting it for $3/day at the redbox. I will respond after playing it to tell you guys what I think. The more aggressive combat sounds like it will make it more fun. Thanks guys for all the help! Oh, and has the game ever given you bad dreams lol? Just for fun stories if you have one



  • No weird dreams (especially since I love most things derivative of Lovecraft) but I can say in the middle of the game, I reached a zen like state where I just understood everything and stopped dying. That... eventually ended, but it felt like I tapped into the matrix at one point.
