Playing this game i was punished for half-assing it and playing said game like bloodborne.
i try to dodge an attack rather than block it and i am smited,try to block the attack of a faily larger foe and you get smacked into 2050, try to run through the whole map? you bump into a boss and get sent to the start...i still have those nightmares of the game oh my.
then there is the "pvp" system of the game where when a comrade dies a "bloody grave" is left in his/her remains(walking over to it highlights who the unfortunate chap is aswell as the rank of gear they are wearing) and activating it summons a a.i version of that person(like a phantom if you will),killing them you can pickup their gear.
dying is like that of many a souls game(die once and lose your stuff for now,die again and lose it forever).
with the fighting system it is strange still you can change a "stance" from high,medium and low eqch with their own pros and cons(you still have your heavy and light attacks so no worries there).
the "stamina"(could never spell that) is replaced with "ki" once you execute a attack it will deplete but like the health in bloodborne you can get it back if you hit a button on the right timing(the ki bar fills up the freshly spent space but if you miss the button press you lose what you spent).
within the game there are currencies 2, you have "blood echoes" and then you have gold(which is spent at the blacksmith to do one of many great things such as refashioning your gear to look like that rather fine outfit you have had your eyes on),
gold is kept after death but blood echoes remain like that of the bloodborne death system.
didnt mean to go out on a tangent there but the game is a really grand specimin tho the controls are awkward to begin with,
happy hunting and have a simply grand day.
(as for those wanting to correct my grammar,i dont need you to wipe my backside)
