Does anyone else remember people on here saying that the Bloodborne load times couldn't be improved by a patch because "a patch can't improve hardware"?
I think that was one of the lowest points of this board's history.
/v/ is a Nintendo/PC board so people lied about / shitposted against Bloodborne. The truth is, /v/ is jealous that they can't play BB without giving Sony money. Now they shitpost it calling it "an inferior Dark Souls clone", when the Souls community's opinion on it can't be farther from that.
I'm not going to deny I'm jealous too; I wish I could play BB on PC. But, From has always been a Sony third party so it can't be helped. What a shame. That said, I will never shitpost a game I haven't played.
They didn't improve the hardware they just went into the graphics settings and lowered the games texture resolution/draw distance you fucking retard.
Of course you blind consoletards don't notice when playing
You PC gamers don't deserve action games like BB or the other Souls games.
You only care about frames per second, graphics and "muh story, muh lore", not about games themselves.
I played unpatched version after getting the game this Christmas (thanks to PSN being slow as fuck making it unable to confirm the email) and the different is very noticeable. Dropped from like 40 seconds to 10. Still a bit long, but obviously qute a difference in comparison to what was before.
Load times pre patch could be around 40 seconds longs. Now they are like 15-20.
They also added item descriptions on the screens so that helped. Before it was just a black screen that said Bloodborne.
I remember a lot of things /v/ said about Bloodborne.
I will tell you what pissed me off as a PCuck playing DaS.
The mouse is absolutely dogshit in panning camera view, and intercepting DXInput through say DSMousefix gets you softbanned.
I shouldn't have to waste so much time to remap buttons to a gaymin mouse in order to make the experience enjoyable, but lolnope. I still did it anyways.
In during I legitimately am playing DaS for the gameplay, not to 60fps1080p.
death reload times were significant - down to max 10 seconds. Before reloads could be a minute in central yarnahm.
Loading into central yarnahm still takes like 30 seconds, before it was a minute.
Are you talking about Dark Souls 2/Dark Souls 2 apology edition? Because I have nearly 2000 hours in Dark Souls and can assure you that literally nothing you can do in PC Dark Souls will get you banned.
OP's point (stated in the most incendiary manner possible) was that improving the hardware wasn't the only way the developers could reduce load times.
This is the strangest mentallity to me.
I don't find it unfair that I couldn't play various PS3 games because I didn't have one. I didn't buy that system, how is it not fair that I don't get to play games made specifically for that system?
I am less angry about DaS overall. The menu may be shittier than DaS2, but FROM doesn't fuck with me like that. Original Dark Souls is the better game and I regret buying Dark Souls 2.
Things need to be said.
You can create the most boring and unfun game in the world; as long as it has high quality shadows, realistic looking pubes and runs at 666 frames per second, PC gamers will praise. Meanwhile a competent, fun to play game will be reviled because it was locked at 30 fps.
There's no way you can justify rampant overgeneralization of the entire userbase of a computing platform that way. Whether you sincerely believe what you're saying or you're just shitposting, your position is untenable either way.
I'm just kidding, it does spark a lot of fighting with even just saying the name
It's really good Anon. When you are able I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
At least you have DaS3 coming to look forward too
The Witcher series is an unfun borefest ("go, talk to NPC A; then go to the next town and talk to NPC B; depending to the dialog choice you should go to to this cave in the middle of nowhere and talk to NPC C or go back to NPC A's town so you can talk to NPC D") and it's one of the most praised PC games. Same with pseudogames like Gone Home or Telltalle's The Walking Dead.
That alone proves my point. PC gamers don't deserve, don't need and don't want "videogamey" games.
Same for all consoles idiot, next to no one is going to get every single console, add this up with a group of neckbeards and bam. A hate machine filled with jealousy and anger.
I'm going to get a PS4 when it's a bit cheaper, like next black Friday. With that adding up I've got every single handheld and console.
Yes, I've got too much cash and I still find some games too interesting / fun to pass on.
Fuck paying for two paywalls though, ain't doing that shit.
Dark Souls 3 is going to be far, far worse than Dark Souls 2.
The thing is clearly something From rushed in six months so they can end their three-games contract with Namco Bandai. I can see it being as short and mediocre as fucking Lords of the Fallen.
>/v/ is a
Opinion discarded, /v/ is massive and encompasses so many people that you legitimately wouldn't believe it, it is not a refuge for some group of fanboys.
Bloodborne got shat on because it was and still is the only notable current gen console game, and it was easy pickings for trolls. All they had to do was say something stupid regarding it and retards like you would flock to the threads, free replies. I'm sure the game is great but that doesn't matter to the kind of person who just wants to shit up /v/, they want replies and will do anything to get them.
PC gaymin beats consoles silly on games that simply cannot be played on a controller. That is something you refuse to consider as games. Titles such as Euro Truck simulators and Flight simulator X are examples of this.
On the flip side, there are shitheads like myself who love playing console games on PC because I don't like controller mapping (such as skyrim) and don't like to play it as a "videogame" since I mod it with animu bewbs (again Skyrim.) The other thing is that I am playing the shitty Neptunia on PC because I absolutely hate the Vita handheld "video game" experience.
I guess you are actually right, although I am not doing it for the 60fps1440p or 60fps4k.
Here's me reposting how pleb my taste is. Behold using the meme controller with Neptunia on fucking Win10.
The development of DaS3 started before DaS2 was even planned as the game.
DaS3 was initially going to be the second game in the series, but then Miya was assigned to BB (before he became the president), the project was frozen and another project (Shibuya's version of DaS2) was initiated. Later, as we know, Shibuya fucked up and was scorned for making a game that's not souls and Yui was assigned to salvage as much as possible, but that's a whole another story.
I love how ridiculous the most common complains about From Software are.
>Another Souls game? why are they milking the Souls series? REEEEEEEE
>King's Field had four mainline games and its spinoff Shadow Tower had two
>Armored Core had 12 entries
>Another Century's Episode is basically an Armored Core game starring Anime mechas and got five titles
>Why is Bloodborne a Playstation exclusive? Why aren't they developing exclusively for PC? REEEEEEEEE
>King's Field: Playstation, Playstation 2
>Tenchu: Playstation, Playstation 2
>Armored Core: Playstation, Playstation 2, Playstation 3
>Demon's Souls: PS3
>Dark Souls: PS3, XBOX 360
A lot of this started with DaS's PC port.
>still being this upset
fucking poorfags smdh
I am still a little angry that I shelled out $200 just to be able to play MH4U. Sure, I can play the DS games, but only the Layton series are of any remote interest to me.
The age of multiplat has taken a lot out of having PS and Xboxes. That's how it's been for me.
>Bloodborne got shat on because it was and still is the only notable current gen console game,
Wii U has plenty, and the PS4 has a few others. Even the Xbone has some if you're into fightan games, racing, or Halo.
Load times have been patched down significantly but the microstutter persists even to this day.
>Though its 30fps average is technically correct, Bloodborne often produces two unique frames followed by two duplicates - rather than one after another - creating a perception of frame-rate drops throughout. It's not smooth in motion at all as a result, and frame-time updates swing erratically between 16ms and 66ms - and sometimes higher.
It's good the game is faster paced than Dark Souls, because playing with this lag in that kind of combat would be infuriating.
>mfw the incoming impasse where you can't say DaS3 is better than BB or vice versus without getting called a shill, PCfat, and/or sonyyger
Gonna cash in on all those (you)'s hard
It's going to suck, big big time. And I talk as someone who liked DaS2 almost as much as DaS.
The biggest red flag for me was how the game was announced out of the blue a few months before its official release, just like Fallout 4.
>The biggest red flag for me was how the game was announced out of the blue a few months before its official release
The game has been in development since before Bloodborne. The overlapping development schedule with Bloodborne meant they had to promote Bloodborne first, wait until that was wrapped up, then talk about Dark Souls 3. It's just bad business to announce a better product while you're still trying to sell the old one.
The stress test didn't look like it was spewing with reused asset. I don't know. The only consolation so far is that 'pro' game reviewers have been talking this game down.
>but the shared building blocks have smudged the Dark Souls identity into Bloodborne’s, and the result felt distractingly similar.
>It all feels very familiar. But isn’t it supposed to? Dark Souls is a series about vicious cycles.
Who gives a shit what you think. It's just a FROMshit game.
No. Bloodborne was announced almost a year before release, and it had been under development since 2012.
Meanwhile Dark Souls 3 was announced six months before its release date, and given how they just finished two big titles (Dark Souls 2, Bloodborne and more recently the Old Hunters DLC), there is no way they didn't start DaS3's development around the time of the announcement.
Even if you liked all the games preceding it (Demon's, Dark 1 and 2, Bloodborne), it's safe to steer away from 3.
It was stated in the interview that the development started around the time they were designing DLCs for DaS2.
The link is even in the fucking thread.
Of course, game directors can (and more often than not will) lie since PR is also a part of their job, but it's literally the only piece of information we have regarding DaS3 development.
BB was announced at E3 2014 and released that following March following a delay from February.
DaS3 was announced at E3 2015 and is slated for March-April release in Japan then everywhere else.
Stop being autistic and thinking development only started after BB was finished
>PC gamers crying that they don't get to play this on PC
>You know 90% of /v/ would just pirate it instead of paying for it anyways.
Not him but this is how it's gonna work
Sony users: Will shitpost dark souls 3 calling it the worst game even before it releases in order to try to pretend bloodborne is relevant.
Pc users: wWll call dark souls 3 the best in series without playing bloodborne.
However souls 3 being the most recent in game and multiplat will be more popular. Sony users will attempt to shitpost threads about it in furious anger while claiming bb is the best game. Sort of like they did with demons.
People pirating soulsgames are a minority since the unique multiplayer system is what made the games popular in the first place.
If DeS didn't have that, we'd have probably never gotten DaS1 let alone DaS2, BB or DaS3.
Pirating a souls game is pure idiocy. The ones who pirate it will never know what it means to git gud and being hopelessly lost when confronted with Sunbro + Giantdad shitposts.
To be fair, a patch can not improve hardware. It can, however, improve how that hardware accesses the game's data, which can result in faster load times.
Patches can't improve hardware but they can improve optimization.
Demon's Souls: started development in 2006, being released in February 2009. It had almost three years on development and it was a great game, establishing the foundations of the series.
Dark Souls's development started around March 2009 and was released in september 2011 - almost three years and while good and arguably better than Demon's it was still a rushed title.
Dark Souls 2's development started around December 2012, being released in March 2014. One year and a bit, the game was an absolute piece of shit.
Bloodborne's development started around August 2012, being released on March 2015. Almost three years of development, ended being the best game in the series.
So, DaS3 started development around July 2014. Release date - April 2016. That gives it less than two years. Far less time than its predecessors, and its developer was still busy with other projects (SOTFS, The Old Hunters).
There is no way Dark Souls 3 isn't going to be garbage.
its not like 300 bucks is a lot in 2016
if it was 599 AND we'd be in 2007/2008 then yeah, I'd understand the issue of it being an exclusive
but right now a console that will last you 8 years costs HALF of what your average highend smartphone
What is it with /v/ caring so much about meme games?
>Sony users: Will shitpost dark souls 3 calling it the worst game even before it releases in order to try to pretend bloodborne is relevant.
i'm idort and i already do that , you know why?
because i played the fucking network alpha you mentally challenged retard
Indeed; just look at Dragon's Dogma right now.
Two months from now I can see Capcom complaining about how disappointing the sales for the PC port were while said port leads the top ten most pirated games of 2016.
No the lowest point was when sonyggers pretended their shitty dark souls spin off polly pocket casual edgy shit game for kiddos that was literally demanded by sony and never an actual idea of from software that actually hates gore shit demonstrated by the moltitudes of miyazaki interviews on the subject, they just obliged because they are clearly retarded with coding and needed SCE to help them improve their engine for later proper souls games, just like they did back for demon's souls and Atlus, but of course the concept of tactical economic move is something that never even passed between your single synapse, did it? You never asked yourself why dark souls 3 was ready so quickly after bloodborne did you, you actually thought that poor marketing strategy for ps4 would actually match actual souls games with substance, you faggots don't care about games, you just like sales numbers, flaunting exclusives you don't care about on forums and always playing the victim when you are widely know as the biggest cancer on the internet immediately after horse fuckers and furfags, you are the scourge of videogames, you are the faggots that treat corporations like religious establishments, you are the ones that worship people that do what they do just to take your money, you lick the hands of those that steal cash from you each month of the year that you think you can't live without ps plus, you are mindless drones, and for that I am sorry for you.
actually im not lololololol keep eating shit faggots
Sorry but you need to face the harsh truth. The thing was an absolute shitfest. It felt so wrong, even with the weapon arts.
If you don't believe me go ask /dsg/ or search for the threads made by the rest of people who was able to participate on it.
>you are widely know as the biggest cancer on the internet immediately after horse fuckers and furfags, you are the scourge of videogames, you are the faggots that treat corporations like religious establishments, you are the ones that worship people that do what they do just to take your money, you lick the hands of those that steal cash from you each month of the year that you think you can't live without ps plus, you are mindless drones, and for that I am sorry for you.
I hope this is not a pasta, because this is really well spoken.
Played the Network stress, the only thing wrong with DaS3 was the fact that PvP could only be conducted in specific areas during the stress test of Lotric, everything else ran far more beautiful and fluid than DaS2 by leagues.
I noticed this too.
Game looked pretty different after I applied the patch, but it was worth not dealing with the loading time.
Just wait for Ps4 is ~200
or borrow/rent one or go make friends
it's a good game
Don't act like exclusivity isn't only used to sell system. It's wasted on PS4, only 7% of ps4 owners even have this game, and only 11% beat the first boss. It's exclusivity made it niche, and the only reason it remains so is to sell units. I do appreciate Sony for letting Miyazaki make another game though.
>spewing with reused asset.
did you play the stress test?
>copy pasted greastsword animations from ds1
>copy pasted rolling/running from ds1
>exact same fucking sounds from des/ds1
it had tons of reused assets, still going to buy it but come on.
Are you kidding? It's going to follow the same cycle as everything does on 4chan. Day 1-2 will be extreme positivity, then when the bandwagon starts rolling everyone will turn on it and call it absolute shit, and will continue to do so till the next Fromsoft game comes out, when everyone will claim to have liked it all along and that the new one is shit in comparison.
>FROM hates Gore
>Are in love with Berserk
>Telltalle's The Walking Dead
>PC gamers don't deserve, don't need and don't want "videogamey" games.
That's not even autistic. That's just stupid. That's a legitimate dismissal of perfectly good intelligence in favour of saying the dumbest thing possible.
You could have just said Zelda Cycle like literally everything goes through now because everyone wants to be contrarian 14 year old hipsters.
Bloodborne gets shit on now but the moment DaS3 comes out, Bloodborne will be the new classic.
couldnt find an article that wasnt about the first game
Any tips for offline Rom?
Herspiders are damage sponges and Rom keeps kicking my ass with her spells.
Roll when you see her cast, keep an eye on her.
The spiders should die in one hit.
Boost HP if it's your first time.
Take care of babies first.
Hit as hard as you can, not it's head,.
Do optional areas if you want to levle beforehand, killing ROM locks you out of a lot of stuff. Do Ya Ghul (sp?) because it will change later.
I didn't even bother leveling up because of this shit. Two loading screens?fuck that
This is a good thing imo.
Pretty much yeah. The strength based class' trick to it, at least with the Axe it had was that it gave it a 20% buff to damage by using mana. Didn't seem to stack at all however. Music was great, Lotric felt and looked great, had your typical "Here is a Drake that lands and breathes fire guys", a Frost Knight that ran on all fours, and the boss moved with some grace, which was surprising considering it was a Dancer.
I think I've taken care of all the other areas I could go to, including Ya ghul with the lighting beast, and the Witches. I think I'll add a elemental gem to my
Won't the spiders just gang up on me after a while, they'll keep growing in number and shit
Well, time to do your bets.
>The first game is regarded as a classic
>The second game is considered a huge disappointment and a step back compared to the first game.
The third game (Dark Souls 3) can go either:
>A. So good it arguably can be considered the best game in the series
The Devil May Cry / Metal Gear Solid path
>B. So bad it kills the series for good
The Bioshock Infinite / Dino Criss 3 path
Which one, /v/?
Killing the spiders is a waste of time. Only kill them if you absolutely have to. You're going to want to finish Rom off as fast as possible. Attacking spiders will just leave you open to more of her spells.
>mfw I found out you can stun Rom out of its teleport move
But a sequel is supposed to be an improvement, just like Bloodborne did. If we're going back to Dark Souls 1's graphically and gameplay-wise we aren't doing anything.
I think I'm going to avoid Dark Souls 3. Will replay Dark Souls 1 or even Dark Souls 2 again.
You can sprint past the spiders without them ganging up on you, get your hits in, then sprint away and repeat.
Kill the spiders if you want, just make sure you side dodge the spells, they're easy to see coming.
If you just kill the little spiders each time, and then hit Rom, you only need to dodge extremely telegraphed spider attacks and slow moving magic. Just roll whenever magic is happening and you can't get hit. The fight only takes about 10 minutes and it's pretty much impossible to fuck up
It has improvements, but it's also has more of the atmosphere and not impossible spacing/geography that was present in DaS2, along with a lot of the other broken stuff that made DaS2 actually annoying.
Think of it more like DaS3 is what DaS2 should have been, an improvement, but more of the same things that you love about the series.
There are anime moves for every weapon, to compensate for the lack of trick weapons.
What I'm actually worried about is that they might have abandoned the concept of powerstancing.
The 20% buff weapon art also has a knockback effect, sorta like Force.
>The 20% buff weapon art also has a knockback effect, sorta like Force.
Did it? Things were dying so fast that I never paid much attention to it honestly, though I do sort of recall it from the Axe guys that take 3-4 hits, just assumed that was from the Axe itself though and not the buff.
They seem to have integrated the concept of powerstancing into some weapons like the Legion Scimitars which can split into two instead of 2handing. I dunno, there is too little information, we'll have to see for ourselves.
But fist weapons are probably safe. We're probably going to have something like the Bone Fist as well.
Yeah, it's pretty apparent in the trailer as well.
I hope the scorching red brand this guy's holding is a droppable weapon as well.
I know it's probably not.
He only wants to play one exclusive game, Bloodborne, which is $20.
He can't justify buying an entire console for one game + pay for online.
If he did, it'd be a huge waste of money and that's disgraceful, you spent $450 for one video game?
You need to justify that huge money waste, and Bloodborne as good as it is, is not worth that money
Well, some gimmick weapons are capable of shitting out a considerable amount of damage, the trident was also pretty good in 2 as well.
I expect the game to actually have decent weapon balance, at least BB and DaS2 were okay in this department.
Knowing Dark Souls it probably is. Now if only we can have that and a giant ass mace and roll like 400 feet like those assholes int he Chalice Dungeons in Bloodborne, we're set.
Things from Dark Souls 1 I want to stay on Dark Souls 3:
Soul-level based matchmaking.
Non-human enemies and bosses (the good ones like Manus and the wheel skeletons, not the bad ones like Bed of Chaos)
Pre-Anor londo level design,
Challenging human-in-armor bosses like O&S and Artorias
Non-nerfed magic and miracles.
Infinite uses invasion items.
An actually functional gravelord covenant
Being able to travel on foot from one area to the another
Heavy armor actually being viable.
Elite Knight set
Things from Dark Souls 2 I want to stay on Dark Souls 3:
Server-based multiplayer instead of peer-to-peer multiplayer
New enemies / events / items / weapons on NG+
All the coventans.
The different stat scaling for every element
Slow estus healing
Invading Hollowed players
Losing a % of your maximum HP every single time you die
The Lost Crowns trilogy's level design
Areas swarming with enemies
Bonfire teleporting from the very beginning
Being able to equip more than two rings.
Things I want gone from both games:
DaS's shitty netcode (SUMMONING FAILED)
DaS2's Soul Memory
DaS2's Infinite poise enemies
DaS2's washed-out color palette
DaS2's shitty hitboxes.
DaS2's healing stones.
DaS2's enemies having perfect tracking
Both games' boring lineal corridor areas (Demon's ruins, Lost izalith, Dragon shrine, Aldia's keep)
These two have quite a similar fighting style/colour palette, makes me wonder whether the fat guy is the leader of mindless ice knights.

I've also transferred my consciousness to a loli robot while waiting for the new generation of consoles, life couldn't be any better right now
The network stress test had terrible netcode, Invasions failed constantly, but that may be due more to the fact that in order to invade they have to have a person co-oping with them, which I think is an awful change personally.
But, it was constant failings on my end, had to re-use the damn orb like 50 times in a row just to try and get something and even then it would only work either in the area right outside the boss door around all the flowers or near the second bonfire.
>be console peasant
>all I can do is shitpost on /v/ all day
>nobody will ever save me from this nightmare
I liked areas like the Iron Keep or shrine of amana because you had to keep fighting but I can see why everyone disliked them. I just want the game to not have huge areas full of nothing.
Replaying DaS made me appreciate the bonfire teleporting being available from the very beginning, but for it to work without annoying people the levels need to be carefully designed.
>Soul-level based matchmaking.
>Infinite uses invasion items.
>Elite Knight set
>Bonfire teleporting from the very beginning
These has been already confirmed and almost 100% will make to the final game.
>Slow estus healing
It's back to being instant, sadly. I preferred slower healing as well, easier to punish during PvP and makes you more cautious during PvE.
The animation windup seems to be slower than DaS1/2 though, so we'll see.
>All the coventans.
I'm going to miss murderous garden gnomes in conquistador clothes speaking in half-assed rhymes, not gonna lie. Probably my favourite covenant in terms of design.
Why are PCucks so mad about one game not being on their platform when they already have such of massive library of fantastic games to play?
honestly I just want From to make more good games regardless of whatever platform they're on.
That's right! Bloodborne is so good it won GOTY and a bunch of awards at the 2015 VGAs!
Even glorious nippon which made Bloodborne know it's great, and all Japanese developers chose Bloodborne as their "personal 2015 GOTY". Look at how many of them loved it!! This is confirmation that Bloodborne fans have great taste. In your face haters!!!
Because as much as I love gaming on PC and the Souls series, both fanbases, especially on /v/ are autistic as all fuck. Not to say the Souls fanbase isn't autistic as fuck regardless of platform, but the point stands.
I gave sony money the other day, and I'm seriously appalled at how much shit I have to put up with to use this machine. How have you guys been doing this for more than TWO YEARS?
- Have to pay to play online. Why the fuck are you still putting up with this? Get together and sign a petition or boycott that shit or something. The PC userbase does it all the time.
- The hardware isn't that great. It doesn't seem like they're really selling this console at a loss (Which is par for the course for console manufacturers - they sell the consoles at a loss, but make money off the games), since a PC of only a slightly higher pricepoint can easily outperform it, with all the other advantages of PC gaming.
- Games STILL don't offer graphics options if you want to bump up the framerate a little bit. I'd love to turn down texture quality and draw distance because when playing a game at 900p with no AA, you can't see shit anyway.
- Likewise, in-game options are severely limited. Want to change your input options? Too bad, you can only use a small selection of preset layouts.
- Can't connect over the 5ghz band. What? This shit came out in 2013. For a machine that can stream and play online simultaneously, that option is essential.
- Doesn't support peripherals like mouse + keyboard in-game, sans one or two games. With the PC audience as big and mainstream as it is now, you'd think better mouse + keyboard support would be an easy way to appeal to that crowd.
- Most games are multiplat, the ones that aren't are hit-or-miss. Until Dawn and Bloodborne are the only one's I'm enjoying, but not nearly enough to justify this purchase.
Overall, I'm really, really displeased with this machine and cannot understand why so many people praise it as the second coming of christ.
>Participating in platform wars
I don't get what mods are doing most of the time. What's the point of having rules if they don't mean shit? Flame wars are against the rules, but most platform war threads stay up and the only ones getting deleted are when it triggers some mod because it's his favorite vidya/platform/company.
Before you fags ask if I'm mad. Yes, I am. I'm fucking fed up with this board, I don't even know why I keep coming here
If dark souls 1 and 2 hadn't come to PC and found a lot of new fans there then nobody would have cared about it on PC.
Dark 1 got ported after people showed interest and found success equal to the PS3 release despite being a bad port that required a fan patch.
Dark 2 was best on PC (FPS/ load times) but felt lackluster as a game, later the updated version released as a new game and split the PC player base.
On top of that we came to find out that while a B team was making dark 2 the A team had been working on a game that would only be available on one platform, excluding everyone who didn't want to get a PS4 and hindering the game with shit framerate and load times.
That's at least why I was mad about it, wouldn't have cared if the other two games hadn't been ported but I feel kind of ripped off after all of that. Hopefully now that the guy behind souls is the lead of from they'll stop fucking with their fanbase.
