Bloodborne

Bloodborne from the renowned masters of masochism, From Software may or may not be the Demon’s Souls 2 you’ve been waiting for. It’s being designed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, the guy in charge of the excellent Dark Souls, but not the rather lacklustre and soulless Dark Souls 2. It looks excellent, even if it is currently running at a piss-poor frame rate.

It’s being shown behind closed doors at E3, but now, thanks to some liberal and illicit use of a camera, you can see the game in all of its shuddering, stuttering glory.

Honestly? I think it looks excellent, and could shape up to be exactly the sort of game Dark Souls 2 isn’t. The game was announced officially as a PS4 exclusive at Sony’s E3 conference, after spending much of its time being known as Project Beast.

A big difference here is that enemies don’t stand about waiting for you to fight them; they seem to move about with purpose, and will even actively seek you out. It’s also a little more Victorian in its aesthetic than the medieval look Dark Souls sported. the game’s combat also seems a little faster, and the sawn-off shotgun and cleaver the hero wields are far removed from the noble Lordran weaponry.

Still, it’s very much a “souls” game. And that’s reason enough to get excited.

    I feel this genre is getting overdone now. Same with the zombie thing.

        So now instead of chin down eyes up it’s become “Face away from camera holding a weapon in both hands while seemingly focused on something in the distance that only the one facing away from the camera can see”

      Wow. I am still coming to terms with the fact that I have been bested by Dark Souls and Dark Souls 2 for greener pastures ( Clockable games, I know, I am weak……) and you are saying this has been overdone. You sir must be a Ninja.

    Seriously that guy was hitting everything but the enemies and they still died? Some controller issues to still sort maybe?

    It looks a lot more darker and gloomier, like Demon Souls instead of Dark Souls. Which is terrific.

    I really enjoy games where the hero wields clevers. Far more satisfying to outwit your enemies than just hack them to pieces.

    I look and I drool. But, When I play it, It will be the equivalent of having a needles stuck into my spinal cord until I can no longer tolerate the pain.
