Wow, this is almost word for word the thread I was planning on making. Glad Iâ€™m not the only one! I just beat Bloodborne, and while it was certainly difficult, it wasnâ€™t as hard as I was expecting. Iâ€™ve beaten numerous Housemarque games, Cuphead, Super Meat Boy, Celeste, TLoU on Grounded mode, etc., and I canâ€™t recall ever feeling this hopeless and defeated in a game. Just when Iâ€™ve worked up to a great build and when I feel like Iâ€™m getting good, it seems like the difficulty suddenly goes through the roof in a particular room, and I get killed and have to start all over.
I really donâ€™t know if Iâ€™ll have the resolve to finish this game, and Iâ€™m super disappointed to feel that way. Iâ€™ve loved Housemarque for years, and there is so much good in this game, but itâ€™s just too damn punishing.
Exactly! I love the moment to moment gameplay, but there's a lack of healing items, and you have no chance against the level ending boss if not at full health, with great weapons, etc.
And agree on other games - huge fan of all the SoulsBourne games, finish and plat'd most of them. But....I can't beat this. Not even the first level. I don't know what to do....in fact, some runs, I'll defeat every room you can get to before the boss to try and level up everything as much as possible, but I usually don't have full health then. Or I do, but there just wasn't enough rooms to adequately level up your weapons to face the boss.
Only thing I can think of is I'm not using my alt-fire's enough. Or if you can get the grappling hook in the first level, I don't have that, but i've cleared all rooms multiple times and never found it.
So frustrating...a $70 game that I can't get passed the first level.....
