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... read

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... read

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... read

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? read
