Bloodborne sells over one million, Sony has announced

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 the latest game t...

Save our souls by rating notes 'fine' in Bloodborne

[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 might save som...

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...

Bloodborne bug basically activates easy mode

Did you seem to have an easier time with certain Bloodborne bosses than other people? Well, unless you are real good/Chris Carter, this might just be because you have too much time on your hands. Reddit user meatballz is reporting a memory ...

Guy 'gits gud,' beats Bloodborne without leveling

YouTube user BOYvsVIDEOGAME decided to beat Bloodborne without leveling up or using a gun, and he's done it. Somehow -- with a lot of patience and practice, I'd imagine -- he's done it. He went with the Waste of Skin origin for his characte...

What is your favorite Souls game?

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 th...

Bloodborne beaten in under 40 minutes

Oginam has beaten Bloodborne with an in-game time of 36 minutes and 59 seconds, currently the world record for an any percentage completion. As with most speedruns, multiple game-breaking glitches are used to achieve this short of a playti...

 
Bloodborne patch photo

Bloodborne's game-breaking glitch patched

Last week, Chris told us about a game-breaking glitch in Bloodborne that made it so an item called the Lunarium Key, which is needed to reach a main-story boss, wouldn't appear. The issue has been fixed, so you can play co-op or invade othe...

One simple trick to help you kill Bloodborne invaders

Getting invaded sucks. Chances are, you're going to die. There's a reason you're being invaded. The other player is confident in their ability to slaughter you. They are probably nigh impervious to damage and carrying some sort of powerful...

Amazon's giving away Bloodborne with new PS4s

It's not exactly a new concept for Amazon to bundle the hot game of the week with consoles. That's been happening for a while with the likes of Grand Theft Auto V and Dying Light being two of the more recent examples. But, Amazon ...

Sony details gamebreaking Bloodborne bug, fix is on the way

Sony has just sent word to Destructoid regarding a progression-hindering bug for Bloodborne -- I'll be as vague as possible to avoid spoilers. It specifically deals with an item called the Lunarium Key not appearing in an area tha...

 
Best Bloodborne room photo

Let's hope Bloodborne's best room is insured

From Software is onto us. There's a room in Bloodborne full of lots and lots of breakable pots. At the Cathedral Ward lamp, take a left down some stairs and then take a right at the well. Next, swing left past the Church Giant and go right...

How to find all of Bloodborne's hidden optional bosses

[Update: I've located the hidden boss, with instructions below.] Bloodborne is officially out, and I've already seen a lot of discussions brewing about the game. Some sentiments are positive, some are negative, but a great deal of peop...

Sony: Bloodborne team trying to improve load times

From Software's Bloodborne is by all accounts a superb experience, but it does come with tedious load times. Luckily, the development team is working to remedy the issue. "The development team is currently exploring another patch for B...

Very Quick Tips: Bloodborne

Bloodborne can get pretty rough at times. All Souls games can. To help you ease from the frustration to the fun zone, here are a few tips to help you on your way. General non-spoiler tips will be frontloaded at the top, but the pr...

 
Bloodborne review photo

Review: Bloodborne

Hidetaka Miyazaki created a legacy with Demon's Souls. With three Armored Core games under his belt at From Software, Miyazaki dared to capture the spirit of the King's Field series for a new era, and thus the Souls series wa...

You missed our Bloodborne stream!

Hey, everybody! The Bloodborne embargo has just lifted, and we've already got a review from the lovely Chris Carter. But that's not all! We're also streaming the game live from the Destructoid Twitch account. I'll be messing around in ...

The Bloodborne launch trailer is so deliciously sinister

If you're worried about seeing too much of the game, stay far away from this video. It goes places. That said, you know a trailer is good when, without hesitation, you go back and rewatch it several more times in a row. Admittedly, part of...

Damn, shouldn't have spoiled this Bloodborne boss

Attempting to go into Bloodborne blind? I feel you. It's not something I can pull off consistently given the nature of this job -- that's one of the big tradeoffs -- but I still try with select titles. The PlayStation Blog has posted images...

Start prepping right now for Bloodborne's meanest bosses

The Boy Scouts are notoriously prepared, and for good reason. Rushing into a situation makes for plans going awry. When things go off the rails, failure's usually imminent. In a game like Bloodborne, failure's part of the formula. It's goi...

 
Bloodborne shields photo

Actually, there are shields in Bloodborne

There are shields in Bloodborne after all, SCE Japan Studio has confirmed to IGN. Well I'll be. Shields will seem like a comfort to Souls players who haven't yet experienced the faster, in-your-face action of Bloodborne, but know that you w...

These first 18 minutes of Bloodborne make me feel all tingly

From Software's latest action-RPG looks to replicate the butthole-puckering tense gameplay that originated with its predecessors in the Souls series. IGN posted the first 18 minutes of gameplay (minus character creation), and it's onl...

Heh, Bloodborne's Messengers sure are dapper

Instead of writing messages with a soapstone like in Dark Souls, we'll rely on these spooky fellows, the appropriately-named Messengers, to communicate with other Bloodborne players and see visions of how they foolishly rolled off some clif...

Bloodborne's procedural Chalice Dungeons are full of horrors

Procedurally-generated dungeons in Bloodborne, huh? I didn't catch the PlayStation Experience demo showing them until now. Not something I would have expected for the game given how good From Software's hand-crafted worlds can be, but as a ...

New Bloodborne trailer shows off co-op, tons of blood

Bloodborne is probably my most anticipated game of 2015, and this trailer is just cementing that choice. You'll get a good look at the deliciously bloody gameplay, including some full-on co-op portions that look like a ton of fun. I'm lovi...

I want to run right past these gravekeeper hags in Bloodborne

Bloodborne isn't coming out until March. That means I have a solid few months to mentally prepare myself for these horrific things, described by Sony Japan Studio producer Masaaki Yamagiwa as "deformed gravekeeper hags." I don't like the lo...

Booooo: Bloodborne delayed until March 2015

I thought a February 2015 release date for the recently revealed Bloodborne was too good to be true, and it seems that was the case. The game is now on track for a March 24 launch, delaying the game by roughly a month. From Software ha...

I still haven't beaten that Bloodborne TGS demo

Usually seeing a demo you played just a month ago means there isn't too much more to wring out. This is not the case with Bloodborne. The Tokyo Game Show demo bested me. That same demo was playable today at Paris Games Week. Its stations we...

Bloodborne developer targeting 30fps

When Bloodborne arrives next year on the PS4, it will clock in at 30 frames per second. This is apparently because that rate is the "best" for action games, according to producer Masaaki Yamagiwa. In an interview with PlayStation Lifes...

Here's the Bloodborne alpha in action

Ah yes! If you weren't fortunate enough to go hands-on with Bloodborne at gamescom, PAX Prime, or Tokyo Game Show, this is the good stuff right here. It's footage ripped straight from the alpha. There are multiple videos here, culminating ...

Mike saw Bloodborne and Until Dawn at PAX!

Our pal Mike Cosimano (who, in all seriousness rivals Jonathan Holmes when it comes to kindness and all-around positivity) was our video editing man at PAX Prime earlier this month. I made sure he got a chance to check out some games he wa...
