You have to install the game from the disc anyway you spong. It'll take up the same amount of storage space either way.

Looks a lot like Dark Souls, though it looks fun, too bad it's a ps4 exclusive.

You should get PS4, tho...
I'm kinda on the fence on which system I should get

I have both Xbox One and PS4, and considering that Ty only has PS4 and isn't that big a fan of Halo, I think you should get PS4 to play with us.

There'll be lots of games for us to play in the future, I think.
oh and you never accepted my friend request on xbl >:c

WHAT?!

I swear I did. I'll go on right now to make sure.
Wait, nvm, you did. I just never saw you online

Yeah, I rarely play on Xbox because all my friends moved to PS4/X1 and there aren't any games for me to play. I also lost my mic, so the few friends I do have I can't speak to.
I've barely used my xbox lately

Am I missing something? It looks like a Dark Souls reskin to me.

Someone explain the big deal
First off it looks closer to the original game if you ask me.

The big deal is it looks like it's keeping what has been good about the past souls games, but improving them a lot. The combat looks fast and fluid, the enemies and bosses look like they have good AI and some interesting mechanics. On top of that the director is the same as Demon's and Dark souls 1, who has proven that he's really good at making this stuff.

The art style is also pretty cool.
The setting of Bloodborne is based off of the Tower of Latria from Demon's Souls, that's probably why you recognize it as more Demon's Souls.
I didn't know the director was Demon's Souls' but it makes a lot of sense.

A few things I'm noticing:

The player usually fights multiple enemies simultaneously and you can regain health by attacking within a time-frame from being hit. This encourages more offensive playstyles and is a massive difference from Dark Souls where defensive playstyles in PvE usually work.
 
Themes relating to blood and plague give a different story feel than Dark Souls' message about futility. It implies degradation of systemic function, but I don't know if they'll exploit this path for story telling.

Weapon morphing seems to take place of heavy attacks, but the combos achieved by weapons may have more variety like when the character uses heavy side slices to knock shields away, then finishes with light overhead slashes. If weapon variability in moveset is greater than in souls games we might see less weapons (which is a shame personally because I'm not big on pistols and meat cleavers).

It might be harder. The Cleric beast fight was reminiscent of Taurus Demon but the moveset incorporated attacks with limited player visibility. Motherfucker also has reach.

it seems like in dark souls getting the biggest fucking shield and hiding behind it was the best strategy, but in this game dodge is love dodge is life.

I'm very interested in what exactly a hunter is and what is this dream state they can enter

Also how am I gunna play the game on easy mode aka spamming magic :(

I honestly can't play DS with a shield anymore.
I've done too many runs where I'm really aggressive and flippy, it's now easier for me to rely on invincibility frames than a shield.

Wait, dreamstate? The only person using that statement I know thus far is me. Damn you From, finding backhanded ways to access my research!

I only played one run with a shield

Now I'm fashion souls to the core and literally just use what looks cool which is usually magic or 2 handing a curved sword/katana

Interesting note, instead of a bloodstain to recover your lost souls, you now have to kill the enemy that killed you or one near where you died

I found Dark Souls to be tedious, not hard. Which was a shame because I kind of got hyped for this game that people were telling me was supposed to be truly challenging. I should probably take another crack at it to see if I can derive enough enjoyment to finish it, but at the moment I just don't really feel like going through a tedious slog of a game.

According to a couple interviews they were supposed to be toning down the punishment in this game, but it still looks fairly challenging from this clip. Considering you die out the gate  ;).

I think they wanted to make it  challenging while being less, as LC put it, tedious. It seems you'll no longer be chinking away at enemies and waiting for one perfect moment to strike. Everything hits hard and fast including you, maintaining a better flow of combat. You also don't have an estus flask anymore, you regain health from countering and enemy that damaged you or from collectibles
