@handlas: I assume you've beaten Vicar Amelia? If you've explored around the Cathedral Ward you may have found a locked door requiring a password. By beating the aforementioned boss, you now have that password. I think I got stuck at that same point, I didn't realize that I knew the password after the fight.

okay that sounds familiar. Thanks!

Anyone wanna give me a tip on where I'm suppose to be going? Ive beaten 4 bosses at the first headstone. I beat the witches at the second headstone. I cant find a new path to follow at this point that isnt blocked by a locked door. The second headstone I only have 2 lamps lit and yet there are no new paths to follow from what I can find.... Ive searched around 3 times.

The exploration and seeing new enemies is the fun part imo. I've long stop caring about beating a game because it is "hard." I got to the 3rd boss and it killed me instantly and I immediately started summoning people to help me. I find that more fun. Just summon people when things get annoying.

Really good except for the parts where you have to rush through a level or else whatever is chasing you will insta-kill you. Horrible parts of the game. Especially the last one with the bird just about ruined any good feelings I had for the game.

I mean it's not the best framerate in gaming, but boy is it better than most of the other games I've played recently... AC Unity...

This is true. I wish devs would take a hit wherever needed to make the frame rate a priority. Downgrade some graphical touches. Add some black bars on the top and bottom of the screen. Whatever. Okay not black bars :)

@handlas: my problem with the art direction is that weird haze the world has around it like you're shortsighted or something.

Yeah, I agree with that. The skybox stuff is really blurry/hazy looking which reminds me of how it was in Dark Souls 2 as well. Think someone made a "fix" for that on PC for DS2. But the overall art direction of characters and monsters is a big step up from DS2 imo.

I'll try rebuilding the databse on my PS4 tonight and see if that helps the framerate any. The game is also kicking the fan on my system quite a bit more than I've noticed before. So maybe I need to give it a clean.

... so I've missed the first boss somehow and beat the 2nd boss already? The graveyard boss. Well now I need to find out where the first boss is! It feels like the game is super linear up so far so I have no idea how I could skip a boss fight.

Also, I cheesed the crap out of that boss. Getting him stuck on geometry so I could whip him from a distance was fun.

I missed the first boss too. I'm surprised you consider it linear. I always felt like there were too many sprawling directions to go in.

DS 1 and 2 seemed more open so far, imo. Thus far in Bloodborne it seems like there are several paths that lead to the same spot. It took me forever to find the 2nd bonfire thing too... I just kept finding shortcuts to the first bonfire. I'm still early on so I assume it will open up more. But I do really love the Demon Souls callback with the main hub area.

Framerate is also terrible for me so I hope they improve it. And I laugh at the people that say "nope no frame rate drops here!" Give me a break. People said the same crap about Dark Souls 2 on consoles... it was hilarious because that game was beyond atrocious especially after you see it running smooth on PC. This is the only thing really bumming me out about the game... the art direction is amazing.
