Y'all are making it really hard for me to resist buying this damn game!

You need 10 insight and then you can buy them from the shop right outside of the house in the Hunter's Dream.  It's on the second level right outside the window.

Be sure to ask if you have any other questions!

Today's patch dropped the loading times a bit and added item descriptions during loading screens. 

Fear the old blood.

Two bosses in and I'm really liking it so far.  I love the old-school vibe, and the weapons seem neat and interesting.  I just got the address disrupter thingy, and that seems to change things up nicely.

Stephen keeps sparking my interest in this game, but I'm still feeling snake-bitten after Wasteland 2.  Man, I really wanted to like that game, but it felt so antiquated and lifeless at times.  Do y'all think I'll have a better time with Pillars?  Keep in mind I wasn't the biggest fan of Divinity either...

Sorry, it's an elevator by the Cathedral Ward lamp.  The Tomb of Oedon lamp is where you fought Papa G.

I think we all asked for this. 

Make sure to play the director's cut if you get the chance.  They included the DLC missions (which is kinda neat) and they made some slight UI changes and massively improved the boss fights (by basically letting you skip them using straight stealth).

Yup!  You can either buy the key or find a different route if you head over to the Upper Cathedral Ward.  There should be an elevator now open by the Oedon lamp.

I'm just about at the end of the DLC and I'm liking it quite a bit.  The stealth sections aren't quite as open as the first few areas in TEW, so they are a little more focused and "traditional," for lack of a better term.  Very much in the old school Metal Gear kind of stealth, I suppose.  I really enjoyed all of the story revelations and sense of place. 

TEW is a very interesting game.  There are absolutely fantastic chapters that live up to Mikami's legacy, and then there are the action heavy stages that feel completely at odds with the mechanics.  It feels like two development teams worked on separate chapters and never really talked to each other about the game's pacing.

I was in the process of reviewing Bloodborne but couldn't even mention it.

Seriously, we're doing the whole "This is my last Metal Gear" again?  I really hope Kojima shifts focus to Silent Hill or something else.

Good points all around.  Could be that we'll see real character development and some style once the game is actually out.  Sometimes a preview just sucks, right?  It shows off the worst aspects of the game without actually showing you what it will really be.  

Edit -
I will continue to champion the idea of a main character in this type of game over a player created avatar.  I miss Shulk terribly, and watching that kid sit silently while people talk at him has me genuinely worried.  Maybe they can pull it off like South Park: The Stick of Truth did, but I feel like some of that XC magic has been lost in the transition.

Just watched the newest video and... well, I think I'm out.  Can't quite put my finger on it, but something feels very off to me.  It's starting to feel like JRPG: Skyrim instead of a cohesive world with unique characters.  Actually, I think that's my biggest problem.  The characters, so far, seem very blah to me.  Boring, lacking personality, and bland.  Maybe things will get better with cutscenes and dialogue, but having a character speak directly to me with the same Elder Scrolls camera angle seems rather off at this stage.

Still, the artwork looks fantastic and maybe keeping my expectations low will allow them to blow me away.  All those factions though..... *cue Dark Brotherhood music*  

Edit -
Also, the natural aspect of the world looks fantastic, but those human populated areas and characters look terrible, IMO.  Everything looks boxy and gray, interiors lack detail, and I think the characters look like PS2 models.  Again, the outside environments look amazing, but I think a lot of that is scale and great lighting. 

Not trying to hate, but I'm quickly losing that "wow" factor I got from the first reveal trailers.  Everything since last E3 has left me wanting.
