@mezmero: You are correct in that I absolutely despise procedural generation and think it's a very unfun way to artificially extend playtime. The way it worked in Bloodborne wasn't the way it typically does in run-based games like Dead Cells for instance. Here you still kept all your gear and all your progress carried over, which are my biggest hangups with games that employ procedural generation. Here the room "tiles" would just get reshuffled. And yah.. it was about as unfun as you saw. The biggest selling point of Souls type games is some of the gorgeous and haunting art design. Replace that with a handful of repeating room patterns spread over several floors with increasingly annoying modifiers and you got yourself the Chalice Dungeons - drab, boring, and mostly annoying. Having your health permanently halved while the enemies did x2 damage was awful because Bloodborne most certainly did not run at an NES framerate.

Why did I go through with it? Well I was close to a Platinum and I had never gotten one of those on a PS4 before and I think Brad was doing a feature at the time of going through the chalice dungeons so I thought hey why not me. I also heard the Old hunters DLC is great but I never managed to get very far because everything was hitting so hard.

Bloodborne is probably my favorite Souls game next to Demons.

@mezmero: I ended up playing through the entire game about 3 times to get the Platinum Trophy - those chalice dungeons are the worst - and that ended up kind of screwing me ultimately. I was really on a Bloodborne high so I got the DLC but since the game scales and I had beat it a couple of times going into a NG++ or something, the DLC was nearly impossible to play. Everything was basically one shotting me, and this is just the early parts of the levels. My only option was to start the game over and get to I think 1/3 of the game again to start the DLC at a lower level.. and man after the chalice dungeons and playing it from the beginning a few times already to get all the ridiculous plot items for the "good" ending I just didn't have it in me anymore and never bothered with it.

I do think they should have some option for using a pre-built character for the DLC's.

I find the game extremely boring to watch but I love the banter

@tonal: I feel as if she is more confident than ever and simply doesn’t join in on conversations she doesn’t have much to contribute to. Also it’s important to note that just like Jan on the West team, Abby was hired for production and being in feature shows and podcasts is just a bonus thing.

@quasiconundrum: just to play devils advocate for a second here it’s equally weird when folks ask “how could you not like XYZ?!” It’s like people have lived their entire lives without ever encountering another human being they just did not jive with.

Of course at the end of the day just saying you don’t like a cast member isn’t productive. It’s just something you have to deal with on your own. Constructive criticism is great but typically not well received (more-so by other site users than the staff).

@mcmoo: it’s still better than most places. I’ve tried visiting other forums and it ranges from utterly vile like NeoGaf to moderately O-K like Reddit. Even ResetEra which is usually mentioned as one of the top sites to go for gaming discussions has the same sort of people that talk down to you and are passive aggressive as everywhere else.

Perhaps it’s because a lot less people are commenting and using the forums on GB but for the most part people seem a lot more civil. I’ve given up on going to other places really.

Looks alright although the environments look kinda dull, but maybe that’s just the beginning of the campaign and then it gets more interesting.
