Unlike a lot of other projects, Bloodborne in Unreal Engine 4 makes sense

As cool as a lot of projects look in Unreal 4 -- specifically the cavalcade of Nintendo ones -- many just feel inherently out of place. Not so for this Bloodborne rendition from Simon Barle, which actually fits. Bloodborne (and it...   read

Blood Rocks are now slightly less ridiculous to get in Bloodborne
