Can't watch at work. Can somebody break it down into text? I hate how everything is a video nowadays.

The combat is slightly faster than the fastest builds in any of the Souls games, but aside from that it's a Souls game in all but name.
I've never played any Souls games

Is Bloodborne's gameplay genre supposed to be just like Devil May Cry / Bayonetta? I've played those

My god, The MUSIC you guys!

Is this game getting a marketing campaign? I feel like its below a lot of radars outside of GAF, especially coming off of the success of Dark Souls

Definitely not, unfortunately a lot of people are drawing the comparison and I fear they're going to get burnt when it turns out to be not something they anticipated at all.

Check out Demon's Souls/Dark Souls. This will be more or less the same, regardless if marketing suggests otherwise.

No. It's slower and more methodical than a DMC-type character action game. Also you die in a few hits from anything.

Its really shaping up to look an amazing game. The IGN Bloodborne coverage has actually been really fun, I've appreciated these videos a lot.

The hammer that can be turned into a sword is god damn brilliant. I want that one!

Or the axe with two lengths. That could turn really handy.

It'll be hard to pick my starting weapon between the Axe->Polearm and the Whip->Cane.

Both of them look super sick in action.

I loved every build in the alpha and managed to take own the boss with all of them. The real question is, will the game have magic and what does it look like. Seen like a flame spell thing in a trailer but not sure if that is a pyro spell or something else.

Will def get a huge push after Order releases. Sony knows it has a bonafide GOTY contender in its hands and will market the shit out of it.

So good. Is there any point dual wielding guns though? Guns are just parrying tools and useful as a supporting weapon for crowd control but on their own do very little damage right?

That's a flamethrower, you can see him switching out his gun.

ok thx for the feedback

At this point I'm not going to play older games like Demon Souls/Dark Souls (I don't like playing any old games, I care too much about graphics/production values)

So this info helps
