Bloodborne Binge

I’ve been posting a lot of Bloodborne videos on my YouTube channel lately. I’ve been binging on it for the past few weeks, partly out of boredom, partly out of curiosity for the DLC weapons. To explain the boredom, there’s always a dry spell of new games after the holiday season. Game publishers want that Christmas cash, you see, so the hot titles are released around that time, leading to January becoming a very dull month for gaming.

Which is where Bloodborne comes in. I’ve been trying out the new weapons and out of all of them, the Whirligig Saw easily became my favorite. It’s an excellent weapon overall: great reach, wide swings, it’s got a transform mode that kicks ass. That L2 attack makes mincemeat out of opponents, especially large, slow-moving bosses. It’s so effective it’s borderline broken. Take note, only borderline. This is Bloodborne, after all. You’re still going to die if you’re not careful.

I also went out and did chalice dungeons to get the right blood gems. Didn’t do that the first time I finished the game. Looking back at my oldest character, I realized that she didn’t have gems at all, for some reason. I must’ve taken them out. No wonder her damage was pathetic. I was considering fixing her but then I saw that it would take a lot of work and I had a nagging feeling that I wouldn’t be content even if I put in the effort. I ended up deleting her then starting over with a new character. We’ll see how that goes.

Anyway, here’s a clip of Amygdala VS Simon’s Bowblade.
