Well I started Bloodborne last night. My first impressions were so much better than Demon's Souls and Dark Souls. I was finding it quite easy for the first few enemies until I walked down the street and found that big bonfire. I eventually managed to pick people off and muddle my way through that section (and a couple of deaths later realised I could just run passed them) and ended my evening after dying on the bridge to fucking crows of all things. I didn't realise it was just before the boss. I also didn't realise that if I'd gone through the door in the first floor of the house that leads to the bridge, I could have opened the locked gate next to the lantern.
So today my first job was open that gate and then it was on to the boss. I died the first time only taking maybe a third of it's health off so I thought I might be in for a long night, but much to my surprise I got it on the next go.
So far so good, I really like it.
