Bloodborne is now finished! Gehrman and the Moon Presence have been defeated. I only got four and a half hours of sleep and I'm exhausted now, but it was worth it!


Morpho, if you're out there, this one's for you.


The fight against Micolash was pretty unique and interesting. Glad I dumped enough points into arcane so that I can use the augur of Ebrietas. He was easy to knock around with that and then get some hits in.


I watched the season finale of The Walking Dead last night, and I gotta say: what in the fuck was with that ending? Dumbest moment of the entire show for me. Rant and spoilers in the comments.


I thought maybe Bloodborne would be the first Souls game without a crappy poison swamp area. Nope. Thanks Nightmare Frontier. At least the Amygdala boss fight at the end was cool and nicely challenging. More in comments.


Somehow managed to take down The One Reborn in my first shot. Right now I'm shaking from the adrenaline. Ran out of blood vials with him down to about 25% health. It was a fun fight, and super intense!


To commemorate my 500th post, here's a pic of riding in the car with a cute puppy. Thanks for making this the best damn home on the internet a guy could ask for.


Has anyone here ever refinanced their mortgage to try to pay off some other more problematic debt? Any hot tips?


Rom, The Vacuous Spider was the next to fall. I do like how the night continues to get worse in Yharnam. It's a nice touch.


Martyr Logarius has fallen. He beat me quite a few times, and then acted like an idiot the last time I was going to attempt for the night. Next stop, whatever the hell is after the Forbidden Woods.


Realized I have 10 days to finish Bloodborne. I've completed the Forbidden Woods last, and am ready to tackle Cainhurst tonight. Is this a long game compared to the Souls games? I'd like to finish before getting Dad of War.


I see that Black Panther has passed Titanic in terms of box office earnings. I finally got to see it with my two oldest boys. It definitely deserves the praise it has received. I really enjoyed it.


So we got a black lab puppy today! I talked the kids into going with the name Rydia.


Hooray for being on call and woken up at 5:15 on a Saturday morning. It's an issue I'm powerless to do anything about, now I sit here like a zombie, unable to go back to bed yet, while higher tier folks try to resolve the problem.


The Shadow of Yharnam is defeated. First try! It was a pretty intense fight, and I almost ran out of vials. Overall, I thought it was a fun battle. Should be even more fun cooperating with some folks.


Today's peek at Pennsylvania news:


I was just accused of "holding patients hostage" because I wouldn't hand out a VM password of an employee that left. Guess she is cool with a massive HIPAA violation and me possibly losing my job. I need a beer tonight. Or multiple beers.


Does anyone use the PS4 remote play to PC feature much? Playing Bloodborne while absolutwife is using the TV, and it's incredibly hit and miss. It seems to work pretty well, and sometimes it just goes nuts and I can't even control my character.


The other night I was bitching about Darkbeast Paarl and how he was kicking my ass. Tonight I spent 45 minutes farming blood vials in anticipation of a long night of attempts. I completely destroyed him in the first attempt, using 2 blood vials. Oh well.


I'm wishing Jiraya a happy birthday, but don't tell him I said that. We aren't supposed to tell anyone.


So it has come to my attention that the best video game ever came out on this day in 1994.


I had really been enjoying my time getting back into Bloodborne. Then came the Darkbeast Paarl fight, which is no fun at all. Now I'm incredibly pissed off having to farm blood vials to even continue onward. This one took the wind out of my sails.


I just died three times in a row to the Witch of Hemwick. How embarassing. The last time she was so low on health I could have killed her with a pebble.


Bloodborne Q: I spoke to Eileen the Crow first after beating Father G. and C. Beast. I've killed the Blood Starved Beast and befriended Djura (inc. being captured to see Paarl.) Can't find her in the cathedral ward. Did I get too far to see her there?


Decided to finally get around to finishing Bloodborne. Realized I had no idea where I was in my previous game, so started fresh. So far the Cleric Beast and Father Gascoigne are down, and I'm off to Old Yharnam.


About absolutfreakone of us since 1:25 AM on 08.06.2013

I'm a married father of four, and I've been gaming since I was big enough to hold an Atari 2600 controller. I tend to favor single player games, but I'm not against some multiplayer. When online, I prefer cooperative experiences, or team based competitive games with objectives.

My top genre is RPGs, and I fell in love with them after playing old ones like the original Final Fantasy, Dragon Warrior, Wasteland, and the Gold Box D&D games.

Here are just a few of my favorite games:
Final Fantasy VI
Final Fantasy IV
The rest of the Final Fantasy series
The "Souls" Series
Chrono Trigger
Planescape: Torment
Skies of Arcadia
Street Fighter Alpha 3
Mario Kart 8
Super Mario World
A Link to the Past
Dwarf Fortress
Civilization 5
Metal Gear Solid 3
The Wonderful 101
Left 4 Dead 2
