After nearly a year and a half the PlayStation 4 finally gets the game it deserves in the form of Bloodborne. From Software delivers one of the most engrossing video games I’ve ever played.

You began a pretty simple enough story that turns into a spider web of fetch quest and throw away side characters. Only a few quest stand out the rest of the first act and It’s very disappointing. I found myself trying to get through this part fairly fast. It took about 50 hours to reach act two. The story so far was filled with ups and downs, mixed with mostly bland quest. Only
