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.

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

They're not a crow.
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.

Y'know, Witches of Hemwick WOULD make a pretty good tumblr rp blog name.
If you're wondering if they just have really great pecs, or they execute pecs, the answer is: yes.

That's a bug.

What the fuck.
"HEY! HEY I SAW YOU POSTED SOMETHING ON TWITTER! LET ME GIVE MY THOUGHTS ON IT!"
I don't have much to say here other than why the fuck are they called "Lost Child of Antiquity".
Today we learn that Gravelord Nito is actually a dad. That explains all the "neato" puns.

They're going to come to your house and break all your toys. (This is an in-joke.)
They'll get Olmec on your ass if you piss them off.
GETTING YOU BACK, COMPUFREAK!
"OH GOD!!" - Compufreak, 2016
Their milk brings all the hunters to the clocktower.
"Death will rise, from the tides!"
This guy gets crazy strong at family reunions.
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.
