ill pick the one with actual meritritious combat and a literal 10/10 art design and sound design

the one with good writing and world building, you know?

Xenoblade, withouth a doubt.

bloodborne its not a bad game at all, but its the same as its predecesor, afraid to do something new, art direction is good gameplay, not so much.

Xenoblade is a gigantic fuck you in the face of squaresoft and its call of duty mentality who branded formulaic jrpg games for more of a decade.

Xenoblade its fun to play,has gorgeous enviroments and a good example of a good open world.

It's a game with all the traits of massively multiplayer online game where you're denied all the most crucial social aspects that make them at least somehow sufferable.

This types of games is not worthy of even being called jrpg and they certainly aren't worthy of being called a "pure, unadulterated" example of genre.

Clearly you haven't played XCX, and are basing off XC

>>323176747
I honestly really like it. Secondary cooldowns and Soul Voice create a very interesting tradeoff situation. Then there's XC's positioning system that makes you stay active. And skills are adequately varied and add more depth.

The only problem is that the game doesn't explain shit. I don't know what the buffs and debuffs do. I don't know what weather effects do unless a NPC happens to talk about them. I don't know what morale does besides buffing particular skills. Otherwise, XCX's battle systems are really good game design.

That's FFXIV, right? XCX doesn't global cooldown bullshit and you don't always want to use skills the moment their primary cooldown finishes. Except that there are situations where you do, like combos and Soul Voice. It's a really neat tradeoff situation.

Not to mention that both Xenoblades are a million times faster than most MMOs.

Way to instantly invalidate your opinion you morons. Seriously what are you even trying to say? BB has amazing atmosphere, music and combat. XCX has amazing exploration, world, the combat is a big step up from the first game and it looks downright gorgeous even on the WiiU which is impressive in its own right. Both are games that should give you hope that there is potential for good shit to come out in the future but you're all just sitting here jabbering like retards.

Xenoblade by far. Way more shit to do than memorize piss easy attack patterns with 2 good weapons against copy pasted mobs and run back to where you died when you see something new or they throw a cheap one at you.

Outside of the odd enemy that suprises you on your first and only your first runthrough, and some of the easiest bosses in any souls-type games, Bloodborne is braindead muscle memory through boring edgy grimdark bullshit.

Only saving grace is the rich atmosphere, and even then it gets really old really fuckin fast.

Xeno all day.

>people saying souls games have bad combat
I get if you don't enjoy it, but from the standpoint of 'videogames should be engaging and challenging' you don't have a leg to stand on, the combat is good, if you don't like it fine, but it isn't by any stretch of the imagination 'bad'

Dark souls 2. Offered far more gameplay when compared to BB. Art was nice, and gameplay was challeneging. It also wasn't as depressing and weird as BB. Screw your options.
>>
>>323179997
how is it challenging?

i honestly only played des and a bit of das, did all of blighttown with a standard zweihander and had no trouble whatsoever, and the difficulty in des is a fucking, literal, MEME, because the game is easy as shit in 90% of cases

>>
>>323179881
Never played DMMM but I played through all of DD including dark arisen and I don't possibly see how you consider it to be better than souls combat, it's enjoyable but not at all as difficult or interesting as it could be, only one class gets to dodge, grappling on monsters can be overpowered, and you have two companions to back you up. Also pressing buttons to activate skills isn't nearly as rewarding as the timing you need to hit with your attacks in souls games. Listen it's a difference of opinion so you're more than welcome to believe what you want but DD has a lot in common with souls combat (or at least I felt like it did when I played it) but is less interesting and demanding. To each their own but I don't see how you can love DD combat and find nothing redeeming about souls combat, seems like a silly extremist view based on some irrational hatred of the souls games. I mean this as sincerely as possible, did you find them frustratingly difficult?

It's challenging because if you get lazy you die, that's it. It demands your attention. I'm not saying it requires complex strategy but you can't just sit there half paying attention while shitposting on /v/ and expect not to get killed. I didn't even say it was hard I said it was challenging, you really have no reason to disputes that because it's the truth
>>
>>323180384
Nah on the contrary I found them extremely easy

I might have irrational hate for them because of all teh fucking shilling that made me pick up a ps3, felt extremely disappointed by DeS because it was NOTHING that the fanboys claimed to be. I fucking stumbled onto firelurker with thiefs ring, almost 0 fireres and slow rolls and still did him on first try when I figured out how the stupid the AI was as I was panickly running around the pillars

And that was supposed to be the hardest. fight. in. the. game.
>>323180394
Not him but I shalt not fall for this shilling again, fuck that
>>
>>323180629
A bit true in DaS, almost not at all true in DeS

Did not play the others
>>
>>323180420
this is pretty interesting

Souls style combat has been called shit so many times in this thread when being compared to a game with gameplay that is VERY similar to hotkey mmos. Opinions and stuff
>>
>>323174401
But why? I want to pick both as they are equally my GOTY
>>
>>323174401
So is this like the hard choice of today? Because souls game are boring and the combat is meh and repetitive.
>>
>>323180662
DeS was a great game but not ball-bus tingly difficult by any means. Also false King Allant is the hardest fight in the game. And I honestly do not believe you when you say you beat flamelurker first try without the purple flame shield but I'll just gloss over that. There are at least six bosses in BB that are more intense and challenging than anything in DD, opinions, I know, but honestly it's the truth. DD is easier and if you find nothing to enjoy in the gameplay, atmosphere, music, enemy design or (in the case of BB) badass weapon design then the series isn't for you, fine. But it is by no means a 'bad' series. In fact anyone who appreciates vidya as it used to be should find a lot to love within the souls series, particularly its esoteric bullshit. Anyway enjoy what you like, I have no desire to belittle your enjoyment, just trying to discuss some games

>>
>>323181245
Ok I did have purple shield but I felt it was irrelevant, if you have the balls to face him behind a pillar with thiefs ring he just forgets about you, and I genuinely did stumble on this myself because I always used thief ring

False king allant was harder for me specifically but still went down on third try

Old king doran fight was still harder than any boss in the game
>>
It's funny because everyone shitting up one or the other haven't even played the one they're shit posting about.

That being said, I'd have to go with XCX. BB's combat and atmosphere are really good, but XCX has kept me hooked longer and I feel like there's more to the combat.
>>
>>323181467
Yeah because it's not supposed to be a fair fight, but dat armor. You used a guide, I can tell. You will never have the joy of blindly stumbling around Boletaria and for that I am truly sorry. I bought DeS on day one and it reignited my love for vidya with its complete disregard for the player, excellent level design, and interesting and bizarre world. Using a guide in a souls game really defeats the whole point, it's the same reason you were running around DaS with a Zwei claiming everything is too easy. If you don't have an interest in exploring and suffering through the world without any help except the (potentially) misleading messages of your fellow undead this game is not for you. I am genuinely disappointed for you, I'm sorry

>thought put into

HAHAHA.

Go ahead and try to argue about the deep themes you can find in BloodBorne. It's an edgy game for teenagers who've never read any Romantic novels. And you're probably going to be confused at the term romantic and not know it's referring to a literary movement.
>>
>>323174401
Tough, but probably Bloodborne. I am super fucking impressed by Xenoblade though, not getting mentioned at all as a contender for GOTY lists is a massive injustice, it's SO good.

I liked playing Xenoblade a lot more than Bloodeborne.

Primarily because Xenoblade has a much wider variety of playstyles and much deeper exploration.

Bloodborne wasn't braindead but it was much much simpler than Xenoblades combat prerogative, which is heavy into RPG status elements, positioning, and several levels of timing that are just lacking severely in bloodborne.

sure in Bloodborne you're ment to dodge and punish at the right time. Occasionally give whatever piss-easy weapon you're weilding a status effect for certain bosses. But thats about it. And you certainly don't need to do that to succeed. Bloodborne has options but they're all useless and unexplored because theres only 2 or 3 good weapons and not enough to do with them to keep the slog of the game interesting. Give a monkey a controller and he'll eventually get good at BB.

Xenoblade its different. These. Mobs. Will. Drive. You... If you don't pay attention to how the combat works.

In bloodborne you're given a rich atmosphere which is a subjective plus... only If you're into lovecraftian wierdness and grimdark edginess. If you are, good shit, then BB has the perfect atmosphere for you.

If you're not into that atmosphere then its literally a hallway simulator. Aside from the fact that there isn't a "Set" or "supposed" route to beat the game, Theres little freedom in how you can actually beat it on your first runthrough. Go this way and fight these mobs then pick one of these ways to go. Once you're strong enough go the other way. Theres no real exploration in the game because theres no real overworld. Once you've seen a place once the only reason to go back is having died and slogging through it again to get where you were before.

Xenoblade is clearly different being open-world where each of the 5 world is level-paced and have different relevance to the story progression.

Xenoblades just more fun. Theres way more shit to do, and even though there's tons of gather/fetch quests.

I like your post anon but I think your analysis of the combat is way off, they are both challenging for different reasons but there are more than 2-3 viable weapons in BB (especially since the DLC came out) and you overplay the importance of positions in XBX which is important for skill usage but give you no way to dodge, timing and reflexes are much more important than BB and for someone who has a PS4 you must not have gotten too far into BB if you're unironically calling it a hallway simulator. I'm about to sit down and play XBX right now (just finished story mission four, I think, you fight the ganglion chick with the ass) but only because I finished and am fully satisfied with BB. Both are excellent but BB combat will always be more satisfying to me, the first time I beat orphan of Kos my heart was beating through my chest and all I could do was throw my fist in the air like I just ran a goddamn marathon, XBX hasn't been able to match that yet
>>
>>323181756
Not at all anon, nice backblast claiming the only way you can do good in souls is by using a guide, I'm honestly not even surprised because thats the only defense soulsfags resort to when someone claims he didnt have any trouble. Which is especially funny because DeS was the easiest, despite fanboys claiming it the hardest. Also extremely underwhelming outside of boletaria, 2-1, some parts of shrine of storms

As for the zweihander the only reason I ended up using was because my 1handed sword broke midway through blighttown and I was too lazy to backtrack for a fix, ended up liking it more than standard sword and board so I stuck with it
>>
They're both objectively worse than the previous games in their series, so I'll stick with the good games.

Bloodborne but I honestly haven't played XBX as I sold my Wii U after Bayo 2.

I didn't like Xenoblade though, got bored of the monotonous quests and MMO combat (just not my thing, not calling it shit calm down).

Think I got up to just after getting Rikki or whatever it was called in XB. I was enjoying the story and characters, but story moments felt spread so thin I lost patience. Same shit happened wit Tales of Vesperia.

No idea what PFS and PWWT are but I will surely explain if you elaborate

As for Zwei, yep, did quelag with standard zwei, 5th try or so, no idea why that is so fucking surprising, backtracked for a +3 on it and did demon ruins before figuring out I cant do the boss fight and backtracking to senns fortress

Where I stopped because meh, boring, will continue today
>>
>>323184001
Honestly I agree with what you're saying and I find that XBX combat is vastly improved, and exploration is a lot more streamlined though the fetch quests still suck ass

I'm gonna get another Wii U sometime in the future (only sold cause was moving apartment and need cash), and I'll definitely give XBX a chance, the mech stuff looks fun and reminds me of Xenogears.
>>
>>323184347
Purple flame shield and pure white world tendency, maybe you don't need pure, just white, but to get that you still would have had to beat phalanx and tower knight without dying once in human form. My point is it's not something people really just stumble across, and if you do you'll just get incinerated by the dragon. Also that's surprising because with a weapon that hasn't been upgraded quelaag would take a decent while, to say nothing of the boulder Giants and stuff if you explored the base of Blighttown. Whatever, it doesn't matter, the game isn't for you and that's totally fine anon, different strokes

First off

>actually dying against phalanx

Nignog u wot?

Secondly

>pure white

Doubtfully doubtful, I dont even remember where I got purple shield, and I died twice at tower knight, but I had it for world 2, did I stumble into it is very probable because I have massive vidya OCD and I will try EVERYTHING

Again, doubt you needed pure white for it, the wiki says nothing about it, furthermore I never got pure white in boletaria

Moving on

>boulder giants

You can run past them

I explored every other part of blightown except the corner guarded by them and I didnt even have the ring that lets you run at full speed in water, came back for the boulder cunts after finishing quelag, its pretty standard, you just run around them, the worst part is those fucking mosquito things coming out of nowhere while you try to take a boulder giant

>quelag takes a while

Not that long, its easy to roll against it and coming from a roll the zwei has a great attack, I'd say if you are properly agressive and know when to pull back for the AOE attack its fairly standard fight

>different strokes

Not at all, I like the games, I just fucking hate the fanbase
