Soling is wayyyy more rewarding though!

But yeah have to agree, co-op is the way to go to maximize the fun factor.

Best part is how it casually trolls you. "here good sir, defeat this boss without taking a lick of damage. Well done, now meet this boss who will rape your face till the cows come home. Trolololo"

Has a great time rolling Father G this weekend only to remember why BSB was not my friend >.<

I might pick this up then, I do like to run things co-op when possible, more fun to me that way.

Edit: and just noticed this is my 1,200th post...

Ugh, you aren't kidding. I went back a while ago, midway through the chalice dungeons for the final trophy.....it was ugly. And I'm sure it's much worse now. Would almost just have to start from the beginning for a while to relearn to play.

I've got a character right at the end as well. I haven't decided on NG+ or go back and do the dlc. I know I'll be rusty as hell

Alright, I just bought the Complete Edition on PSN, downloading now. I'll probably start playing later this afternoon when I get home. I'll probably also stream it, idk. All I know is I'm going to suck HORRIBLY at this game lol.

Everyone sucks at first, but you'll get better fast. The first couple hours are going to be the hardest. Go into the game knowing that, and just working on making it to the first boss and unlocking some shortcuts, and you'll soon make some quick progress. Shortcuts are huge, so always be on the lookout for gates and switches.

To give you an idea. I bought Dark Souls on PC for cheap a while back (yes I played with a controller) and it took me something like 15 tries to beat the first boss in the asylum... literally like the first thing you fight lol. I'm seriously bad at games like this, but we shall see what happens when I start playing.

I really don't want to spoil anything but yeah expect this game to be similar as well. After you find him report back and we should be able to give you several spoiler free suggestions.

Depending on how tired I am this afternoon, I'll probably start playing this and streaming it as well so people can revel in my terribadness. Been working on a new Twitch overlay this morning. Not done yet though.

Patience and perseverance lol. These games are for those who like getting abused I love them personally. Demon Souls was amazing and Dark Souls was good too but I didn't finish it and only managed like 70 hours before Battlefield 3 took over. Couldn't get back into it after that. Which was a shame.

I tried the new DLC and played until the first boss. It took me a bit to get used to how to play again. The gameplay is so good. The atmosphere of the new area is awesome as expected so far.

That was pretty much experience with Dark Souls as well. I never would have finished Demons Souls or Dark Souls without using exploits. Dark Souls II I used an area that somebobdy at AVS told me about to level up like crazy in order to be able to finish the game.


Just remember co-oping when need and asking for tips! I enjoy the exploration of these amazingly crafter worlds and the gameplay aspect a ton. The bosses are a bit too hard for my tastes but there always seems to be a way to make it work in the end.

Ran by Gamestop and got my PSN money for the DLC and snagged Dark Souls 2 on PS4 for $20. Was some sort of black Friday sale. Still $40 on PSN

I was the same way when I started Dark Souls. For what it's worth, I think Bloodborne is a little bit easier than Dark Souls is because of the speed of combat. You're much faster now, and it pays to be aggressive. That's really my biggest tip: be aggressive. Dodging towards enemies instead of backwards is one of the most effective strategies that I used to beat a lot of the tougher enemies in the game.

The DLC should be downloaded to my PS4. Will play this when I get home later this week. I know Nex will co-op, we can always use a 3rd.

You and up to two followers and one invader possibly. Don't think invaders can team up. So basically up to 3 coop. But only in new areas, once you clear a boss, you can't summon in that area again, but you can still join others. Another tip is to join others in a new area to scope it out for your game.

One word of advise. If you do co-op, find and murder the bell-ringing woman less you find yourself invaded.

Of course Ep is right. However invasions are the special sauce that help make the Souls/Bourne games so damn kick ass.

Yeah, but as a new player it can SERIOUSLY ruin your experience if you get facerolled by a level 100+ player and it just keeps happening over and over.

Gotta help the new players out man!

There's like a percent cap though. Rule of thumb is like + or - 10 levels to coop and invasions.

Of course again. All I'm saying is sometimes, for some personality types, it's fun to be surprised by the lolstomp and not know its coming before hand.
