Before GameTrailers shut down, it re-scored Bloodborne a perfect ten


Its first ten ever
Feb 09
 
The games industry was saddened yesterday to hear of the closing of GameTrailers, a media staple for the past 13 years. People like to say "it's the end of an era" anytime anything popular ends, but the phrase actually feels...




Badass blacksmiths make Bloodborne's iconic Saw Cleaver


Cleaver? I...
Feb 08
 
Bloodborne's rife with unique weapons, almost all of them fitting the criteria of being interesting enough to warrant a real-life adaption. But, the Saw Cleaver edges out the rest this time and is the one that's actually mad...




Zack Furniss' favorite moments of 2015


Well, a few of them!
Jan 18
 
I know, I know. The first month of 2016 is halfway done and I'm still writing about 2015. Well it was a damn good year for games, okay? Back off, Mom. Instead of talking about my top picks from last year, I'm going to tell yo...




Watch someone beat all of Bloodborne's bosses without dodging


Time to get the hell out of dodge
Jan 12
 
Trying to beat Bloodborne is like trying to break through a reinforced concrete wall with a toothpick. You keep chipping and chipping and chipping away, maybe eventually making a tiny crack, and then a tentacle monster comes...




This Bloodborne comic is too cool for still images


Do the pics change with high insight?
Jan 07
 
The hunt is a wonderful, terrible thing. A sentiment perfectly captured in this gorgeous, lightly animated Bloodborne webcomic, The Master of the League. You ever run into something that just leaves you wondering "how the hel...




Blood Rocks are now slightly less ridiculous to get in Bloodborne


And Blood Stone Chunks are cheaper
Dec 21
 
To fortify weapons in Bloodborne, you must find increasingly rare materials. The last item in particular is a huge pain. A Blood Rock is needed to max out a weapon, but so very few exist. There's one toward the end of the ga...




Destructoid's award for Best PS4 Game of 2015 goes to...


Bloodborne
Dec 19
 
Was there ever any doubt? Of all the distinguished and exemplary titles to grace the PlayStation 4 in 2015, few approach the wit and artistry of From Software and Hidetaka Miyazaki's Bloodborne. As the latest installment in w...




Majestic! Bloodborne is online again


Emergency maintenance ended
Dec 02
 
Earlier this week, From Software took Bloodborne offline for "emergency maintenance on the game servers," presumably to address an exploit that led to players gaining access to content from The Old Hunters DLC without paying ...




Bloodborne is offline for 'emergency maintenance'


Well, shit!
Dec 01
 
Yesterday, I logged into Bloodborne for another evening of futile attempts to beat the optional boss in The Old Hunters. It's a maddening exercise in patience. One slip-up, and you're out. Plenty of people are struggling with...




Very Quick Tips: Bloodborne: The Old Hunters


Wake up from the nightmare
Nov 24
 
When Bloodborne launched, I provided a series of tips for newcomers. They're still very much relevant for the dawn of the Old Hunters DLC pack, which debuts today, but I figured I'd provide a few add-on specific pieces of info. Note that there are light non-specific spoilers involved.




Here's how to access the Bloodborne: The Old Hunters DLC


Step by step
Nov 23
 
Bloodborne, much like its predecessors, is a relatively esoteric game. Even simple things like locating a $20 DLC package can be hidden beneath the surface, so here's a quick rundown of how to enter the Old Hunters add-...




Review: Bloodborne: The Old Hunters


All Nightmare Long
Nov 23
 
While many gamers out there are fighting the good fight against DLC, From Software is certainly making the case for it. Dark Souls had one of the most fantastic add-ons of all time in the form of Artorias of the Abyss, w...




A nice big 9GB patch just landed for Bloodborne


In preparation for that new DLC
Nov 20
 
If you're an avid Bloodborne fan eagerly awaiting more content, you're likely already aware that The Old Hunters is just four days away from launch. What you might not have been aware of is that a 9GB patch for the game lande...




Another covenant is coming to Bloodborne


As part of a patch, not the expansion
Nov 05
 
Even if you're planning to pass on The Old Hunters expansion for Bloodborne later this month, there will still be a reason to revisit Yharnam. From Software is preparing a free patch that will introduce another covenant, The ...




Bloodborne, an actually worthy game, is getting a GOTY edition later this year


Every game gets GOTY these days
Oct 13
 
I find it funny when developers release GOTY editions when the title completely doesn't deserve it. It's always interesting to see how marketing hype plays into some re-releases, as a bunch of titles don't even get the "Of th...




There is a friendly carrion crow in Bloodborne


And other assorted tidbits
Oct 12
 
YouTuber VaatiVidya is back with another Bloodborne lore video. This time, he examines a slew of smaller discoveries that didn't make it into his prior videos. A few of them surprised me. Pebbles being eyes, for one, because ...




PlayStation boss: Bloodborne was too big of a risk for From Software to take alone


It was too early into the PS4 life-cycle
Oct 01
 
In recent years, From Software's come into an increasingly fortuitous situation with its games. The cult classic Demon's Souls has grown into a mainstream series after the critical and commercial acclaim of Dark Souls&nb...

Bloodborne's expansion looks nuts


Put that thing out of its misery
Sep 15
 
Some of us are going to face this monstrosity in Bloodborne's first and hopefully not final expansion, The Old Hunters, in late November. Please wish us luck. I'm having Bloodletting Beast flashbacks. You've probably seen the...

Bloodborne patch 1.04 arrives with some tweaks that make the game easier


Passworded co-op is now easier to play
May 25
 
Ah, Bloodborne. While I'm not quite sure how it ranks overall in terms of the Souls games (I need a few more years to ponder that), there's no doubt in my mind that I'll be returning to it periodically. A steady str...




Sony boss confirms Bloodborne expansion, more info late this year


Cool
May 20
 
Despite the successes of Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, and Dark Souls 2, recent PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne sold well enough that Sony was still surprised with the results. It's not surprising, then, that the game would b...




Sony surprised by Bloodborne sales


The PS4's unexpected system seller
May 18
 
Before Bloodborne was released on PS4 a few months ago, Sony had optimistic expectations for how the game would perform. Apparently, even going in with optimistic expectations for its performance, Sony were surprised by how w...




This Bloodborne map sure would've helped


Curse the wretched woods
Apr 28
 
First the patch for faster load times, now this fan-made map of Bloodborne -- damn, shouldn't have raced through the game like that. I'm missing out! There's always the inevitable fourth playthrough and beyond, I suppose. Thi...




That fix for Bloodborne's long load times is out now


And a new jazzed up loading screen!
Apr 23
 
Bloodborne is a pretty fantastic action game, but as I mentioned in my review, it had a few annoying issues at launch. My chief complaint was the long load times, accompanied by a boring black screen with the game's logo. Tod...




So that's where Bloodborne's infamous closed door leads


Well that was anticlimactic
Apr 22
 
Have you been to Bloodborne's best room yet? The one filled with pottery just begging to be smashed to pieces? If you walk past the pots (after breaking them, of course) there's a curious door. You can interact with it, but ...

Snappier Bloodborne load times coming this month


As well as a fix for 'abnormal game behavior'
Apr 14
 
How much time have we spent staring at that damned Bloodborne logo during the game's long loading screens? Actually, I'm not so sure I want to know. With save files totaling 50+ hours of play, my number would be gross. From S...




Bloodborne sells over one million, Sony has announced


It deserves it
Apr 14
 
With the tough-as-nails approach, cryptic story, and ethereal aesthetic, Souls games are a tough sell. But the quality of each game (and the talent of director Hidetaka Miyazaki) shines through, and Bloodborne is th...




Save our souls by rating notes 'fine' in Bloodborne


That's why you always rate a note
Apr 09
 
[Spoilers for one of the main bosses in Bloodborne.] The next time you see a note left by another player in Bloodborne, consider rating it "fine" even if it's not all that insightful. As shown in this clip from Chief023, you...




Official Bloodborne Soundtrack available to pre-order, releases April 21


"Rom only knows what I'd be without you..."
Apr 08
 
I'm terrible at Dark Souls, and I'm too broken to play Bloodborne, but at least I can always appreciate the amazing score as the phrase "You Died, Ya' Feckin' Ejit!" seeps into view for the trillionth time. Thankfully, for mu...

Beware this naked fatty in Bloodborne


Not even gravity can stop him

No guns, either
Apr 03

What is your favorite Souls game?


Demon's, Dark, Dark II, or Bloodborne
Apr 02
 
Between the recent release of Bloodborne and Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, I've completed five playthroughs between them. It's a perfect time as there aren't a lot of huge releases currently, and I'll rarely, if ever, see the release of two Souls games at basically the same time. So that got me thinking, what's your favorite?




You can put enemies to work in Bloodborne while farming Blood Echoes


I get by with a little help from my pigs

Long load times remain untouched
Mar 31

Amazon's giving away Bloodborne with new PS4s


Now that's a deal

'Whoops'
