Hey, so I've been debating on buying Bloodborne for a while and was wondering.

Does Bloodborne have as much "Where da fuck do ah go?" nonsense as Dark Souls 1? I love everything about Dark souls 1 except for the fact that there's no set...well, path. Call me casual, but I needed a guide to help me find my way to some places.

A few areas can be a bit confusing but for the most part I found it quite easy to get around.

Easier than I found getting around Dark Souls 1 anyway. :p

Aside from each area having multiple paths to completion, III feels the most straightforward on where to go. A bit disappointingly so.

It may as well have a flashing neon sign that says "GO THIS WAY" on every visible path.

Eh, I still managed to do most things in the completely wrong order, thereby fucking over all npc questlines.

I felt absolutely devastated when I found Greirat lying in the water surrounded by those centipede ladies.

So, someone hacked Poise on and used it to fish for backstabs in PvP.


So overpowered.

Finally found a Titanite Slab, wondering what weapon I should go with. I'm doing a pure STR build and I'm doubting between the Large Club (which I've been using for most of the game), Yhorm's Great Machete, Smough's Hammer and Fume Ultra Greatsword.

The Great Machete and FUGS are both fantastic, but the Great Machete is faster. Don't fuck with Smough's it's not worth the requirements to hold it.

Well, I can already meet the requirements with base 40 STR and Knight's Ring actually. Main reason for wanting Smough is just because it looks awesome. I've been trying out Yhorm's and it's very good though.

So I decided that I'd fight a boss without using the win-button gimmick.

Also, can someone put me into cryostasis for just under two months so I don't have to wait for the DLC?

Ashes of Ariandel is sitting in my Steam inventory and it isn't playable for the next four days.

It is like they want me to go hollow or something.

DLC came out yesterday, it's about three hours long if you take it at an even pace and don't go for everything. about two hours of that is gonna be on the last bossfight because holy shit.

also the sword and shield paired weapon, valorheart, is ludicrously good. it has blocking frames on almost every attack, so you trade out having a proper shield for blocking even while you attack. it's also much, much faster than a standard straight sword, so it's DPS really solid.

all the weapons they introduced are pretty great, honestly, but valor stands out for me. fuckin' love it.
