You've gotta see these unused Bloodborne creatures

I didn't expect to have another reason to bring up Bloodborne so soon after that recent rare Chalice Dungeon find, but here we are again. Folks have been digging through the game files and returned with eye-catching results, including never...

There's going to be a Bloodborne comic

As much as I don't typically go for comics based on games, I'm willing to make an exception for Bloodborne, whether it's fan-created or officially sanctioned. Anything to get me back in this horrific universe. With that in mind, I'm very cu...

It's time to play Bloodborne again

Time to scrape the rusty blood off your saw cleaver, primp up your impossibly cool Victorian coat, and hunt some beasts. Return to Yharnam, a mass-community Bloodborne event scheduled to begin March 10, is encouraging fans to take to up the...

That sure is a Bloodborne werewolf jerking off

On weekdays, I typically wake up to a couple hundred fresh emails sitting in my inbox. When events are happening, like this week's Game Developers Conference in San Francisco (which I'm not even attending!), things can get considerably more...

Badass blacksmiths make Bloodborne's iconic Saw Cleaver

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 made, maybe becaus...

Zack Furniss' favorite moments of 2015

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 you about my favo...

Watch someone beat all of Bloodborne's bosses without dodging

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 out of nowhere...

This Bloodborne comic is too cool for still images

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 hell have I never ...

Majestic! Bloodborne is online again

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 for it. The ser...

Bloodborne is offline for 'emergency maintenance'

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 the DLC's firs...

Very Quick Tips: Bloodborne: The Old Hunters

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. No...

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

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-on. Basically, ...

 
Bloodborne DLC review photo

Review: Bloodborne: The Old Hunters

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, which came month...

There is a friendly carrion crow in Bloodborne

Bloodborne's expansion looks nuts

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 trailer, but P...

Bloodborne patch 1.05 brings more co-op improvements

This Bloodborne map sure would've helped

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. This map was creat...

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

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. Today Patch 1.03 i...

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

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 the game tells ...

Snappier Bloodborne load times coming this month

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 Software has bee...

Bloodborne sells over one million, Sony has announced

Beware this naked fatty in Bloodborne

This guy. This guy right here. It was late at night and I was already on edge in one of Bloodborne's unnerving Chalice Dungeons. I had hoped to quickly find the lever so I could proceed to the boss, get my ass kicked a few times, scrape by...
