Title
Between Bloodborne being nominated for GOTY at the game awards and this new DLC dropping I've had more than enough reasons to jump back into the nightmare that is Yharnam! Man, in an age where most DLC and expansion packs are total rip offs these Japanese developers really know how to dish out valuable content. For 20 bucks you're getting two brand new areas to explore (plus an extended portion of Yharnam called the River of Blood), 5 new bosses, and tons of new weapons and items. For me, it was all about the new beast mode joint, I got a freakin gattling gun now and a sword with a large saw at the end of it!!! The Amygdala arm was a pretty sweet weapon too with a monstrous attack range but I rarely used it. I'd recommend playing this DLC AFTER you've completed the main game because these areas/bosses are hard as balls and you're gonna want your character to be pretty stacked before going in!!!

The River of Blood was a challenging section because there were a lot of really large and aggressive enemy types thrown at you, and you may or may not run into the Blood Starved Beast again...... Stay away from that mysterious looking cave is all I'm sayin...... The Research Hall was the creepiest looking area in this DLC but I thought it was a pretty easy section outside of the annoying acid traps. But the Fishing Hamlet was prolly the most brutal section in the game, not only because of these massive anchor wielding fish-man dudes but also that annoying hunter that keeps invading your game!!! This DLC also has some of Bloodborne's most challenging bosses, Laurence and the Living Failures weren't too bad but the first boss Ludwig was an absolute jack a** once he starts wielding the moonlight sword, and Lady Maria is a problem when she starts hurling blood at you and doing that crazy fire sh**! But it's the last boss, Orphan of Kos that f***ed me up the most, when he goes into his second form I don't even know what's going on, there's just s*** flying at me in all directions!!!

This is how to do DLC, and what a fantastic way to celebrate the masterpiece that is Bloodborne! I do wish that this was just a tad bit longer but honestly the stiff challenge kinda makes up for it! If you own Bloodborne you'd be crazy not to play this!!!

    Damn Laurence haters, literally nothing wrong with the fight. And that badass vocal extension of the Cleric Beast theme *chef's kiss*.

    Listen guys

    I genuinely think this DLC is one of the best things to happen to gaming.

    But Ludwig is overrated and sucks to fight at any level other than being completey maxed out and is emblematic of the worst and most janky things to game has to offer, exacerbated by its poor technical performance.

    Kos and Lady Maria are the GOATs tho

      heavily heavily disagree, Ludwig is the best boss fight From has made (but Maria and Kos are still GOATs that give him competition ofc)

    The Research Hall and Fishing Hamlet combo is absolutely draining in how dark, nihilistic and hopeless everything is. You think a river of blood filled with skinned living corpses would be hard to top, and then you come to this. I've seen over a 1000 horror movies, and this is probably the most unsettling media I've experienced. Also those two giant fishmen in the well are harder than Ludwig and Lady Maria, and as far as I can tell there's absolutely no point to beating them other than masochism/challenge.

      oh nevermind found out the fishmen drop something important. fuckers took me more tries than either Ludwig, Maria, or Orphna though.
    • tmohare 2024-05-29 16:36:14.18539+00
      there is just something so weird about how things move in this isn't there, nothing particularly *scares* me but there's a lot that taps into the uncanny, those blood succy things like auhsiakslakh in a way it helps drive the action bc god i really want to kill them
