@dirtybirdy: Yeah I checked later too. Ian said on Twitter he updated the download bundle but the GitHub version was out of date. That's what I saw first. Updated my old message to remove that warning.
I got Bloodborne during one of the last PSN flash sales and this is my first time playing a "Souls"-type game. I still haven't defeated a boss yet but I'm getting close. Yet as much as it can be frustrating, I enjoy it a lot. I love the feeling of accomplishment just from reaching a new area and making it out alive.
Also playing Cuphead, and what is left to say about that game? It's fantastic and it's one of my favorite games of the year. Made it to world 3 and every time I think I am going to hit a wall, I come back and patterns start to emerge. It's euphoric to finally see that Knockout screen.
I'm only on Isle Two and about 40% done and I think for the most part the difficulty is okay. Don't get me wrong, I've failed over 300 times and counting but there is a strong sense of accomplishment when everything finally goes right and you get the Knockout screen. I screamed for joy when I beat the Genie level last night.
I agree with the sentiment that sometimes it is just a roll of the dice to get the right enemy pattern. Specifically the Ribby and Croaks fight was a big RNG gamble on the final stage. I HATED that fight.
@htr10: I've really liked what I've played of 2 and 3 so I might be worth it just to try at least some of Homecoming. I've been doing this whole play-through thing on my Twitch channel as a way to motivate myself to finish these games.
I'm currently playing SH3 and I've been thinking about playing through more of the series after this. I already beat 2 so I might have to track down Shattered Memories. I have heard 4 and Homecoming are not great but I still might try 4 just to see what it's about.
@panicswitch: Just as a follow-up to my first post, the start time is now set at 10AM EST on November 4th. Also I am trying out Twitch VODCasts since I can't stream from home currently. I recorded a playthrough of Silent Hill 3 and all October long I will be posting new episodes leading up to game day. First episode starts next week over at my Twitch channel.
This year it will be a 3-man team as myself and my friends, Mike and Paul, will be live-streaming all 25 hours from November 4th to November 5th. We play for Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital as it was the hospital that my niece was in when she was diagnosed with a very rare brain tumor. The full story is on my donation page but she is happy and healthy today because of PSHCH. Last year we managed to raise $1,622 which was incredible. So this year we have a lofty goal of $2,000. My Extra Life page has our goals and incentives up already. All donors $5 and up will be entered to win some Steam Keys. All donors $10 and up will get a 10-second song improvised and performed by my friend Paul on the live-stream. I personally can't wait for that one.
There will be plenty of multiplayer games like Rocket League and Nidhogg II as well as some single-player games like Everbody's Golf, Shadow of Modor, and Amnesia: The Dark Descent that we will switch between during the stream. We are also just $60 away from our $500 goal of a Precision Game block. If reached, we will play games like Trials Fusion, Dark Souls III, Bloodborne, and Thumper all the while implementing a swear jar. So we will have to donate $1 for every curse during this block. (We don't really curse much but I think Dark Souls and Bloodborne might make that happen).
It should be a lot of fun, hang out with us if you have a chance.
