Still counting the days, extended Bloodborne TV spot and info released

OK fine, I guess I'll get hyped now

I've been stubbornly attempting to resist the Bloodborne hype train. Getting your hopes up, especially for modern AAA games, usually leads to nothing but pure uncut disappointment. As we near the actual launch of the game, however, I think the hype may finally be getting to me.

After watching this 90-second extended cut of the TV ad, I may as well buy a ticket. To coincide with the release of the video, Sony has revealed some other little unknown tidbits about the customization and leveling aspects of the game.

In the Hunter’s Dream, you’ll be able to purchase items, level up your character by speaking to the Doll, repair and upgrade your weapons (more on that below), and get useful advice from Gehrman, the old man in the wheelchair.

The main currency in Bloodborne is called Blood Echoes, which you can earn by hunting beasts and more. Use Blood Echoes to purchase items from the shop in the Hunter’s Dream, or even repair and strengthen your weapons. In your adventures, you’ll soon come across special items called Blood Gems, which can be attached to weapons in order to increase their attack power and even add special characteristics to your weapons.

In the Hunter’s Dream, you can also interact with the Memory Altar in order to memorize special Caryll Runes to upgrade your character. Some runes may allow you to carry more items in your inventory, or boost the amount of Blood Echoes you receive from each beast you hunt down, allowing you to customize your hunter however you see fit.

And for those with the official PlayStation Gold, Silver or Pulse Elite headsets, you will be able to "open your Headset Companion App to download a custom Bloodborne Audio Mode that’s been tuned specifically to bring the unique world of Yharnam to life."

I've been wanting that headset. Good job by Sony to push the fuck out of it with a cool feature like this.
