Bloodborne at any price is a good deal, at £6.16 it's an absolute steal! The more I think of it the more I'm sure it's my favourite game of this generation! A must try for anyone, even if you didn't get on with demons souls/dark souls!
A lot of people on here will be savvy enough to buy PCGamesupply credit when it's on sale, making these effectively £4.5 each

Really didn't like bloodborne but can see why folk liked It. Great price.
Shadow of Mordor was £4.69 last time it was on sale on PSN US. Still a good price, but if you're not going to play it right away it might be worth waiting.
Can't be bothered with US account faff, especially as it's so easy on the Switch, I'll hang on, hope it'll drop in UK. Heat for the discovery though.

Top of ps4 exclusives list for sure. £6 to play the best game of the generation is absolutely ridiculous
Brilliant, heat from me as I have 2 discounted $10 vouchers to spend
Very hot, just a shame it's not the EU store, I have so much credit, so I'm not going to buy some more just for the US store

Thanks, just got $10 from PCgamesupply and I am downloading Bloodborn now, hope it's as good as peeps on here say it is.. Mad Max is a steal to, one of my all time games, highly recommended to anyone thinking of buying it..
Came to $8.63 in total, 0.64 was added for tax? Have USA psn always done that, I have not noticed before..

You've got to put a fake address in that doesn't pay tax.

Second that, I didn't really get on well with any of the others but enjoyed bloodborne so much I've played though it 3 times. It's certainly one of the best games I've played in years and it's rare for me too complete a game and play it again straight after.

How does that work?

I believe they don't, game and DLC must be from the same region

The price varies a little with the exchange rate, but the recent sale was $10 of credit for £5.33. You only need to use 80% of that for an $8 game, so that's effectively £4.26. Even better!

It's one of those games you're supposed to like...
Difficult is fine, I'm not averse to games with a steep curve... but being forced to replay the last 30 minutes every time you die is just plain irritating.
It just artificially inflates the game's play time with monotonous grind.

I know I'm massively in the minority on this one but I've got comfy in today's gaming world where failure is punished with a maximum of 5 minutes replay.
Is this also on the Canada store? I have $10 on my CA account. How much is Bloodborne on there?

Although it's true you can have go replay 30 mins if you die. That's IF you don't unlock the shortcuts on the way and feel the need to kill EVERYTHING. There's so many times in the game you'll die, and it's a straight 2 minute run back to the boss or spot you died at.

Each area is actually really small, and smaller with a shortcut and there's really no need to kill everything each time. As a first timer I can understand that issue but once you're used to the game it's non existent.

Exactly. I'm also of the belief that if a game is going for punishing levels of difficulty then it needs to be technically immaculate. Losing a boss fight because the camera decided to get lost behind a wall half way through just isn't cricket.

I have zero respect for From Software and I think most people just bother with their games for the sense of online kudos tbh.
Anyone know if UK game saves are compatible with US games then as I know DLC isn’t? I had Mad Max on disc but sold it after completing the game but I was only a few trophies away from Platinum so for the sake of a few quid wouldn’t mind picking it up as it’s a great game in all fairness

A guide helps a lot. Especially at the start.

Pro tip for souls games:

Don't kill everything all of the time, if you die to a boss it's ok to run past everything to get back there.

Also grinding is only a thing to get more bloodvials unless you don't understand how to play the game and if its the latter grinding to make your character op for the area will take a long time and you will hit a point where being over leveled will not help anymore.

Trust me once everything clicks and you break down "the wall" you will love the things you hated about the game.

Not far - there was a couple of werewolves on a bridge I think...
It took ages because of the resets and then it sent me nearly back to the start when I died there.

I think you missed a lamp (checkpoint)


If you try it again I would watch some combat tips for begginers videos on youtube it will help break bad habits that other games have tought you.


I tried darks souls 1 at launch and spent soo much time getting no where and gave up 50 hours in, ds2 comes out and same happens again get half way through and gave up.
Bloodborne releases and me and my infinite wisdom decide this is the one.

Finished bloodborne went right out after the credits were finished and bought dark souls 2 for ps4.
a few weeks later and I finish that too, shortly after I thought damn I never finished dark souls so I fire up the ps3 and didn't want to stop playing it until it was done and it's now one of my favourite games ever.

Tldr: I had to play multiple souls games before "I got it" and everything clicked, if you can get past that barrier you can look forward to 4 or 5 of the best games ever.

I'm not sure if I agree with supposed to like ...then again I don't die that often in these games anymore, there is a learning curve and once you "get it" there's a rhythm to each encounter that's just glorious, thrilling and ultimately rewarding.

I remember playing demons souls back on the ps3... it took me from 2011-2015 to complete, I kept giving up on it with the same frustrations you're quoting there but then all of a sudden it just "clicked" and when it did I was addicted, finished that, dark souls 1, dark souls 2, dark souls 3 and then Bloodborne.

I had previously bought Bloodborne on launch and hated it but upon going back post completion of the souls games I adored it. Such such such a good game, my only problem is Blood Vial farming, I much prefer the Estus Flask model within the Dark Souls games.

You should give it a blast again at this price you may surprise yourself

As said above, I'm giving it another go for a fiver...
I just need to finish The Witcher GOTY, Skyrim, Fallout 4, Dragon Age Inquisition, Shadow of Mordor GOTY, God War III, Mad Max, The Evil Within, Batman Return to Arkham and 4 Lego games 1st so I should get to it by tomorrow afternoon

That list is just what I'm planning to play... I've got a load of platformers, racers, puzzle games, bargain basement games, barely-played VR games, games I should go back to and a truck load of PS Plus stuff.
I think I have a problem... Not enough time off from work & family commitments

Haha, missed that comment ... you need to stop finding all these good deals man! That's your prob! You've got some good games to get your a** through there though! Make sure you get the Tresspasser dlc though when you're playing Dragon Age
