• LackingSaint posted a message in the forum topic Is Summoning the same thing as surrendering to you?. on the Bloodborne board

    Yeah, pretty much. I mean co-op is absolutely a fine time, and it mixes up the formula in a neat way, but considering the way bosses are designed in Souls games i'd feel like I didn't "really" beat th...

    @humanity: What? But the voice is the same, and they're wearing the same outfit, and they drop the Crow Hunter Badge. Still feel like i'm missing something, haha.

  • LackingSaint posted a message in the forum topic Eileen the Crow prey fight the best. on the Bloodborne board

    Wait, am I missing something? Why do people keep saying "he"? It seemed blatantly obvious to me that Eileen was female, what with Eileen being almost exclusively a girl's name and the voice actor bei...

    Just finished it. Given Dark Souls is one of my absolute favourite games, it was always going to draw some unfair comparisons, but I think for the most part Bloodborne stacks up to DaS, with some crip...
