I’m hype for this. Seriously. I’ve been waiting for this game for the longest time so I’m VERY excited to start my blind play-through tonight. (I say ‘blind’ because I’ve never touched a Dark Souls game before. I’ve watched others stream it but haven’t played them myself.)

I start tonight at 9PM PST / 11AM CST / 12AM EST live on Twitch here: http://www.twitch.tv/simplyundrea

Am I going to get rekt a lot? Yup! Am I going to love every single second of it? Absolutely!

(Sidenote: I realize that some of you might not be able to make it because you don’t want to be spoiled and that’s okay. But I’d appreciate some #StratsLove since this is my first release stream since I did The Order: 1886!)

As if you couldn’t already tell … I’m hype. Haha. I will also be streaming BB for the Team Strats Birthday Event along with Life Is Strange. Thanks in advance, everyone! xx

I will do my best to stay up until 3 to i can hop in and say hi! Awesome post too @simplyundrea :smile:

Ooooh, a Souls virgin! You are in for a treat!

Unfortunately, I will not be able to watch, as I will be playing it myself - I scheduled off work tomorrow so I can be up all night!

Good luck, Good Hunter!

I’m not going to watch cuz this is the one game that I actually don’t want any spoilers to. But I will host you if I can do it thru my phone lol


#5

haha! Good for me, I’m in Kuwait! I’ll wake up early and play it! :smiley:

Pretty much my first game like this as well! I’ve played a bit of Lords of the Fallen and love it, but couldn’t get into Dark Souls with a mouse and keyboard on the pc with the horrid port that the first one had.

Good luck fellow virgin!

EDIT: First impressions. Wow. WOW. The graphics are just beautiful. The background noise and environment really gives the feeling of desolation + foreboding.

The cries of terror you can hear while walking through Yharnam set the stage, as well. It really hits home that you’re a Lone Hunter while running through the streets. The atmosphere is really something.

The enemies growls + the dialagoue while you fight them all add to the multi-layered setting. The weapons are great, too. (Love being able to dual wield the Cleaver/Pistol combo.) Movement is very fluid. Striking with the Cleaver is smooth.

The load screens do take some time, though.

(And I haven’t made it past Central Yharnam yet but this is just my take on the game so far.)

Taken from IGN’s twitter:
Sony has confirmed Bloodborne is getting a patch to reduce load times and increase performance

Yay for reduced loadtimes!


#8

That patch isn’t out yet is it? I just installed Bloodborne on my lunch break and downloaded a 2.69gb patch. That was only ~2h ago.


#9

Had a day one patch, this is a separate one that is in the making


#10

I only have the day-one patch that came with my digital download of BB.

I can’t wait until this other patch comes out, I could really use a reduction in time for those loading screens.

Sidenote: In my ‘Online’ game settings, I have the regions set to ‘Worldwide’ + the password matching to StratsCo so I can play with you guys when the need arises!

Ah, gotcha. Thanks for that. Still at work so haven’t even been able to get past the title screen (loaded to trigger the update process, lol)
