Fucking finally my copy came in! Impressions soon!


Didn't know you had a PS4. Pretty strange how it took you so long to get a PS3, but you got a PS4 first year. Have fun with the game!

I don't get it, Ludwig's Holy Blade has higher stats than the Saw Cleaver. Yet the Saw Cleaver does more damage to enemies.

I haven't found a single weapon stronger than the Saw Cleaver. That's kind of stupid, it's the first weapon that I received.



You start to see some weird shit out there when your insight is high enough.

Umm anyone now why I got killed radomly killed by picking up a set of attire? Some warped thing teleported me up into the air and Frenzy text appeared and then I died :s


Yeah I found that weird too but the game will explain it later. There is a few areas where that will Occur.

 

Side note I dislike bosses that have lots Of little minions. A lot haha

Some weapons scale to different stats other than strength. Holy blade sounds like it probably relies on arcane instead. It will have a ranking on the weapon a,b,c,d,e ect on the item screen

Edit: maybe that was a dark souls thing... I should probably double check that

Damn it. Eilleen the Crow died fighting the hunter. Can I still complete her questline? :( or does this mean no hunter caryll rune for me?



Managed to make it through much of the Yharnam area before Cleric Beast as well as some of the sewers and only died once. I found a Madman's something that gives me Insight atop a ladder from the sewers, went back to Hunter's Dream, and now I have 5000+ echoes to level up with as well as the Hunter's Set that I found :)

Definitely helps when I've played the 3 other games plus DLCs. I'm liking the faster combat, though I still have to get more used to triangle being heal. Been healing by accident when I meant to transform my weapon.

I really like the Regain system. It definitely helps compliment the fact that there's no shield (for the most part).

I've been surprised a few times now where more enemies than expected came from behind me or something.

Also I picked the Hunter Axe + Pistol combo.

From what I've read, weapons have different attributes like blunt and thrust, so some enemies will be weak to a certain damage type and one weapon can do more damage even if it has lesser stats.

Thanks :)




The atmosphere and setting are amazing here, the best since Resident Evil 4 imo.



Just beat the Shadow of Yarhnam. Great boss fight, fighting 3v3 was a lot of fun. I can only imagine how hectic a 1v3 would be, kinda like The Four Kings in Dark Souls. However, I read somewhere that there's a bug regarding Forbidden Woods? If you use the only feature at that location, you apparently miss out on something big because of some sort of progression bug?

And wow @ the Insight thing, I never knew. I was always wasting them on co-op feature lol.

Grats. Now go get that new greatsword!!!!! I got it this afternoon and it is amazing. (it scales at B str and B skill once upgraded)

I like I said, if you are in front of BSB in ph2 you are dead.

Where is it?...after the chapel door that opens after BSB is defeated?

Also, are there no secret walls like we see in Dark Souls?


Cathedral WP to the right there is an elevator that previously did not work. Use it. It is in a chest on the 3rd floor of that tower across the bridge you cant miss it as the whole point of this area is to get the emblem that lets you buy Ludwigs GS and Ludwig's rifle(less scatter than Blunderbuss, but seems to have higher impact).

I f'ing love this weapon. I have it at +5 right now and is scales B str and C skl (I saw it scales B B at +8) and since I softcapped STR at 25 the C scaling in Skill is really increasing my damage. I know one shot all normal enemies Old Yarnem and prior, take 3 hits with it in GS mode to kill a werewolve, and my favorite.... I took me one charged hit to kill the Axe guy down the alley near the 2nd WP at the beggining of the game.



psn- tokila

add me, the more the merrier.
