Original Thread: The Purge but with werewolves: Let's Play Bloodborne [VLP]



I'm sure a lot of you know what Bloodborne is, but for those unaware here's a quick rundown. Bloodborne is a game by FROM Software of Souls fame, and it plays pretty much like a quicker Souls game. Ditching the dark fantasy of the Souls series, Bloodborne adopts a more victorian and gothic horror style, which is part of the reason why I love the game so much.

As a bit of backstory; I love Bloodborne. From the gameplay to the sheer style it oozes, this is easily my favorite Souls-esque game. An LP is something I've considered for a bit, but, I wanted to capture the "first impression" style that would've been impossible by myself. That's where Compufreak and Devious Vacuum come in. They're both friends of mine who've experienced very little of Bloodborne, and both showed interest in this plan of mine.

Now, a couple things about the LP setup. I do not have a capture card, which is unfortunate, but, I can use PS4's streaming in a way that allows to me to record at at least 720p. It's not perfect, but, it looks serviceable, and the fact that I get to do this in the first place makes it good enough for me. Unfortunately the streaming situation does cause a few frame drops and some pixelization problems, but I feel it turns out otherwise fine, despite those issues.

On the topic of Chalice Dungeons! I bring this up in the first episode, but, I'll only be briefly showing them off so I can get a specific armor set. The Chalice Dungeons are just completely uninteresting, and while some of the bosses in there have neat lore implications, it's not worth it to delve into them.


- Keep spoilers in spoiler tags: My co-commentators won't be looking at the thread too often for this exact reason, but on the chance there's someone reading the thread that hasn't experienced Bloodborne in some manner, I'd rather future things be kept a surprise.
- Try not to devolve into tangents: A discussion about mechanics is fine, but if it's just a constant back and forth about something with nothing coming from it, I really don't care. That's about it, honestly.
- And of course all other SA and LP forum rules apply.

Bloodborne Co-op Chalice Dungeons [1] - The Cop AU
I'm sending the thread off to archive: We're still doing the Chalice Dungeons, but, it's going to be a lot less organized and scheduled. You can check Bo's youtube, or my own (I'll be stuffing them in the Bloodborne playlist when they come out) if you want to see them.

Huntsman Ordinary Villagers/Zombies:
Average, ordinary villagers that Bleaksol murders because they blame him for all their problems. They're probably not wrong. Also, maybe zombies?

Big fat creepy crows that drink blood.

Huntsman's Minions Igors Solomon Grundys:
They're basically Igor from Frankenstein Solomon Grundy but with a brick and sometimes a statue.

Kidnapper Bagm'n:

Brainsucker Teen Cthulhus:
They're not a crow.

Hunting Dogs Knife Dogs:
They keep trying to play fetch with you, but, you can't understand it. Because of all the knives. Much like Edward Scissorhands, the tragic hero, and classic Tim Burton character.

Mad Ones Slenderman:
Find all eight pages to fight the boss for Hemwick Charnel Lane.

Hemwick Grave Woman Witches of Hemwick:
Y'know, Witches of Hemwick WOULD make a pretty good tumblr rp blog name.

Executioners Pecsecutioners:
If you're wondering if they just have really great pecs, or they execute pecs, the answer is: yes.

Snake Balls Snorbs:
Snake orb.

"What's the dark, gothic fantasy version of 'boing'?"

Bloody Crow of Cainhurst The Bloodborne OC from Deviantart.
Fuck you.

Parasite Larva Bloodthirsty Randos:

Lost Child of Antiquity Real Boy Gargoyles:
I don't have much to say here other than why the fuck are they called "Lost Child of Antiquity".

Cramped Casket Many Children of Gravelord Nito:
Today we learn that Gravelord Nito is actually a dad. That explains all the "neato" puns.

They'll get Olmec on your ass if you piss them off.

Micolash, Host of the Nightmare Macintosh:

Old Hunter's Hound Bloodhounds:

Nightmare Executioner Pecsecutioner the White:

"Death will rise, from the tides!"

This guy gets crazy strong at family reunions.

Giant Fishman Old Murk-Eye
He's a legend among murlocs. "Mrghllghghllghg!", they say.

They can see the future. In that future both players draw more cards. Spoooky.

I don't get it.


Wordybird highlighting one of my favorite moments from episode 3:

Shlapintogan shows that the Mad Ones Slenderman don't give a shit about your mortal physics.

Wordybird shows how incompetent I am at videogames.

DeviousVacuum shows what would happen if our snake friends tried to go the movies.

Shlapintogan proves that even if you're being attacked by a murderous hunter, you still have time to exercise.

Wordybird showing off Bleaksol getting his just rewards.

SweetNAwful gives her interpretation of Kevin as the new crow.

Shlapintogan shows, uh...y'know what, I got nothing.
