Poll: With Dark Souls 3 now out officially, would you like to see Vinny finish Bloodborne? (421 votes)

Yes 71%
No 24%
What's a blood echo? 10%
No Caption Provided

I'm sure it's been discussed, but let's find out the interest level!

Can we get enough votes to make it happen? I feel like the game has now been out long enough and we're due to have another series by Vinny if he's up to it for Premium content now that they're wrapping up the MGS series. Please?

I'd like to see Vinny play through Bloodborne. It might inspire me to return to it myself.

I would definitely watch Vinny play it, but I don't want to see him play it because a bunch of people voted to see it.

No, I never get much enjoyment out of watching people play games I've played myself and am overly familiar with.

I would love to watch him finish it, but I'd say yes to any video content with Vinny in it anyway!

He's probably not gonna have any time to play it on his own, especially now that Dark Souls 3 is out.

I think we need to see him best Papa G at the very least!

I want to see it if they can get the stream up fairly often. Vinny is going to have a hard time hopping on and off that game, I believe in his ability to beat it for sure, but if he has to readjust and practice every stream because the breaks are too long he'll get nowhere fast.

Though that said I also got the impression he didn't really enjoy it that much. I only want to see him play the game if he wants to play it. Vinny is at his best when he's having fun with something.

Nah, there's more than enough Bloodborne content on the site. Could be nice to see something new.

My game of the year but there's so much more they could do in that time.

Please yes to this! Vinny playing Dark Souls as well as the Demon Souls run with Brad have been some of my very favorite GB content. I'm sure they have had their production meetings, but this is the perfect way to not only ask for but show the interest level for a feature. So... thanks!

Nah, I'd like to see the East crew get back to playing random stuff. If something grabs them like Life Is Strange did, I'd be glad to see them do another full playthrough of something, but otherwise I'd prefer them trying different stuff. There's already more than enough Souls coverage on the site.

I too would rather see him play something fresh that hasn't been so thoroughly covered.

I just finished playing it to warm up to the console framerate in preparation for Dark Souls 3, and every time I primed the Boomhammer I thought of Vinny pumping that Hunter Axe. If he wanted to record it I'd watch, cuz I'll never be bored of Bloodborne, but Breaking Bradborne was probably plenty for a lot of people.

I really like the dynamic of Austin and Vinny. I'd love to see them joke around and just hobble through it.

Another thing that I think would be interesting would be to see Vinny forced into another playing style. Like Brad mentioned during the quicklook for DS3, it's hard to readjust back to a Souls game at first, after playing Bloodborne.

While I can't disagree with the amount of content out there regarding the games, I know Vin inspired me to go back and I've been having a great time with it. Reminded me of when he picked up DS1, then DS and how it was an absolute blast.

I can't say for certain. I enjoyed the past souls features, but I don't know if I want to see another dedicated feature on it. For example, I loved Metal gear scanlon and watched them play 1 and 2. After that I just lost interest and have only seen a handful of episodes. For me new types of content is key, or at the very least a feature that allows variety... Aw, what the hell. I'd watch Vinny play just about anything.

Naw definitely not, the Breaking Brad last year is more than sufficient Bloodborne streaming for me. Found myself tuning out of the Bloodborne playdate super fast.

That would be like a zillion playdates for Vinny to finish Bloodborne. He's not even especially far into it. Remember how many Load Our Last Souls there were, even though Vinny was decently far into the game already?

Load our Last Souls is one of the best series on this entire site so yes of course I want this.

I'm kinda on the fence honestly. I feel like Vinny is not a big fan of the twitchy-er combat, and in that case I would prefer to see him play something he enjoys more. I dunno, maybe I'm mistaken.

He didn't seem very into it when he was playing it during the stream; seems like he's the opposite of Jeff when it comes to which Souls games he likes.

I enjoyed Breaking Bradborne, but the fact that it was 99% Brad just going through the weakest part of the entire series, I can't really say that it does 2015's true GOTY justice.

Though I wouldn't oppose watching the GBeast crew help Alex get through Mass Effect 1 at the very least!

I wouldn't be opposed to it (and by that I mean I would like to see it since I love me some Bloodborne) but I'm also okay if it doesn't happen. I'd rather Vinny play games that he wants to and it's cool to see them play games that I don't have any personal experience with, such as Life is Strange or all those old Castlevania games.

I would definitely like to see this instead. The Brad/Jason team was great when they were playing Bloodborne previously and seeing different people/teams on the site keep things fresh.

Not really into those games personally so i vote no.

The beast crew are at their best with things like kerbal where they can have fun and tell dumb stories.

Thats why i almost jumped out of my seat when Austin hinted at a Crusader Kings 2 play through being a possibility.

Vinny cutting a bloody swath through the Middle Ages while Austin and Alex look on in horror could be AMAZING!

As much as I would like any new long-running GBE video series.

(But I'd rather they do something else because there's so much Souls-based coverage on this site already)

I'd much rather see a new Project BEAST-esque series by Vinny where they play Factorio as a team.

Ironically after Project BEAST I'm really ready for them to play some action based game. I loved the Kerbal stuff at first, but later on when it became hours of sitting in orbit time accelerating episode after episode is when the series started to really fall off for me. I wouldn't mind getting back to a series where something a little more involved was happening on the screen. I think Factorio looks cool but I can see that becoming very samey very quickly.

He doesn't seem that into it, I don't want to hear "x is different from Dark Souls so blah blah blah." I'd rather see something else. I mean I really want to see more Demo Derby, and Symphony of the Night.

This site already has way too much souls content. Would rather them play something else.

#43 Edited by PeteyCoco (273 posts) -

The site has been doing so many long plays recently that I wish they'd start making more small and varied pieces of content. Plus I feel like I've seen every member of this site play a souls game at this point and I'm definitely bored of it. Maybe more east vs. west stuff? Something more structured than just playing a regular game and talking over it ( I get that this is pretty much the definition of what this site does, but I like features where the game is weird/new to the crew)

Honestly I would sit and watch Vinny play any game to completion. Perhaps in an Endurance Run style of video series.

I think watching Vinny play anything is fun. With that said I think they should table playing Bloodborne for now unless Vinny is really ready to hop in now for his personal enjoyment. Maybe save it for a charity stream or something like that.

According to the poll, it looks like there's some interest, but some strong comments against it. I guess both are understandable. Recapturing that spark he had for DS1 might be tough. Some of my favorite content and maybe I'll have to go back and rewatch it sometime. Love his attitude towards everything.. Welp, here we go! haha. My stomach is still in knots.

This is something I'd really, really love. ME is a big last gen blind spot for me. Seeing a playthrough with people who seem to really love the series sounds like an excellent introduction to that world ahead of the release of Andromeda. If any of these votes actually counted for anything, this is where mine would go.
