meh
b-but bloody werewolf waifu LC.  :(

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
I need to stop being in this thread.
why
I like to go into games completely blind.
get the fuck out of here

But I'm probably gunna stop reading the ign first articles. The one I posted today has mild story spoilers about a boss and I like finding that stuff out myself

Which aspects of it did you find tedious?

The combat in general. Really the only interesting portions were the boss battles, but the tedious grind to get to them puts me off.

I have no idea what grind you are on about at all, you can get through the game without grinding to upgrade gear at all. The enemies are simple enough, and half the time you can run past them to get to the boss god.

So what grind are you on about?

Heeeeeeey

Bloodborne confirmed to have shields! Will link later if you don't believe me but it's on ign 1st overage today.

Allegedly they'll be harder to use than before

Still on the fence about buying a PS4 for this, since it has no other games.

like I told you before I would if I knew an effective way. I tried doing it with dragon age and couldn't figure out how to get voice of gameplay and don't have any video editing stuff on my computer to cut out lame bits

I hope it won't have less customization options than the Souls games, although it's kind of looking like it.

they've released a character creator video and it looks on par with if not better than dark souls.

As far as gear goes, I agree but dark souls 2 didn't show much gear before the game was released either...

I am talking about gear, yeah. I know the previous Souls games didn't show much in their pre-release stuff, but they did actually show something. So far, I've seen one set of armor and one set of weapons in Bloodborne. Nothing more. Plus, the PVP is this werewolf invasion thing. Will there even still be room for actual builds and such?

nah we've seen 3 sets of armor I believe, the weapons ive personally seen are the cleaver blade spear thing in the video above, the pistol, the blunderbuss, the sledgehammer, the cane, and that's all I can think of atm.

I'm also hoping the werewolf thing isn't the only way to pvp

Yeah, this would be my main complaint. One of the things I love most about the Souls games is the insane variety. Almost any weapon / ring / armor / spell combination is ultimately viable if you know how to use it, and making different builds is a major part of the games. I don't even have a PS4 so unfortunately no Bloodborne for me, but this would be extremely disappointing.
