Well I finally got around to playing more of it, and it's really putting a sour taste in my mouth now. I had a great first impression, but now I'm getting frustrated because most of the difficult bits of the DLC rely HEAVILY on simply outnumbering you. It's no fun to climb down a ladder and immediately be forced to fight 3 guys who charge you. The worst bit so far would have to be this room where you have to fall through a trap door and fight 5~ guys in this pit. Their movements are so predictable and easy to dodge, but when you're forced against so many, inevitably they'll go off your limited camera and land a hit on you that you couldn't see coming. Whenever I die, I just groan and let out a tired sigh because I have to go through so many tedious sections all over again.

And what is with these DLCs and having the bosses be SO far away? The first DLC had them back to back at the end, and I feel like this is going to be a repeat of that. I want to fight these bosses man, they HAVE to be better than slugging through dozens of enemies at a time, right?

The main boss is literally 10 seconds away from the Bonfire. If you have issues with fighting 3 guys at the same time I don't know what to tell you because you are essentially saying you'd prefer to fight 1-2 guys. You know Bloodborne is going to throw 5+ enemies at you regularly right?

Like someone else said, I mean the bosses are so far from the beginning of the DLC. I've been playing for more than two hours and haven't come across a single one yet.

And yes, I'd HIGHLY prefer to fight 1-2 guys at a time with a more complex move set than "pulls arm back for a second and then swing giant sword". They know they created such a predictable and boring AI for the enemies, so they compensate for it by - like I said - putting in a LOT of them that they become a hassle. So far a fight has rarely felt fair or fun for me. Plus when you're up against so many, the fight basically degrades to a waiting game, where you just have to wait for an opening since there's so many of them attacking at different times.

Also, while I'm not getting Bloodborne since I don't have a PS4 nor do I intend to get one for a long while, I have confidence that Miyazaki will make it more similar to the first Dark Souls and Demon's Souls, since he's back to being the director again.

And a bit off topic, but was magic nerfed prior to this DLC? I feel like my Soul Spears are taking MUCH longer to cast now.

I will say that the bosses will probably be what you are looking for.

@golguin: You're right, that makes way more sense. It's similar to Artorias, although at this point I have to question why we're fighting Alonne if we're in the King's memory? Are we meant to be the OIK in this memory? Was Alonne rebelling against the OIK? O_o

I believe it's just an unfortunate thing that happened and the death was covered up by the King saying he just left. The reason you enter the memory in the first place is to get the final smelter wedge (behind Alonne's throne) for the Nadalia Idol. Destroying the final idol gives you Nadalia's real soul (12 pieces make it whole.)

It's the same way you end up killing the Giant Lord in the memory. If you talk to Chancellor Wellager after killing the Giant Lord he'll recognize the fact that you were the one to do it You were always the one that stopped the Giant Invasion just like the player character was always meant to kill Artorias and stop the spread of the Abyss in Oolicile.

The more I think about it the more I'm starting to see how The Old Iron King and Sir Alonne are gay.

Telling maybe that the memory's name is not Alonne's, but the Iron King's? Is there speculation that the kingdom fell due to a lover's tiff between OIK and Alonne?

Sir Alonne having a throne has already been mentioned. There was no Queen since the King was already gone by the time Nadalia arrived. There's the fact that the memory of the Old Iron King features Sir Alonne (his armor and weapon are prominently displayed). The Old Iron King renamed his knights after Alonne and made them abandon their swords for katanas (there's no reason for them to have katanas before Sir Alonne arrived).

The final bit is that Alonne left for no apparent reason. There had to have been some reason for Alonne to leave without his weapon and armor.
