Sorry if this has been asked already, but does this have the same limited respawn rule as DSII for non-boss creatures?

No, but it does remain the mechanic that has been around since Demon's Souls where certain non-boss enemies will never respawn once killed. I know this at least goes for the hunter-type enemies in Bloodborne.

That's the only one I've seen not respawn also.  A hunter NPC that I killed.

The two best things I've read about reviews are that there is praise from fashion and life publications and picky from tech reviews.  Secondly that most of the reviews are of the "but I wanted it to do this" type. 

I'll also be ordering tomorrow at 12:01.  Sport edition in space gray 42mm.  Looking forward to new shiny!

Funny how you realize some things later and feel very stupid. I have been running around the Central location and the sewers and leveling up a bit. I then have read a few strategy articles and realized that I have been clueless in two basic areas. I noticed my pebbles seemed useless so I would run in and attack villager groups and run back and take care of whoever followed me. I now see I have to lock on to people and then throw pebbles. How did I miss that?
I also never realized I could do the stealth kills. I would just run in and attack them before they knew what hit them. I did not even think I could creep in slow and do the R2/R1. I will be unstoppable now until I meet some new creature lol.

I can't figure out how to stealth kill from behind.  How do you do it?  I've gotten the shoot/stun/kill one down, but not the stealth.

Got the second boss down, but I had to watch a youtube video of a different tactic than I was using to do it.  Also apparently you need lots of molotovs to beat bosses?  Or maybe just these ones that have beast phases. 

Having more fun now that I am not a pushover and learning the lay of the land.  Also that counter gun/attack move is really good.

First boss tips?  I've leveled a bit, bought the first avail armor set (4 items), have a decent idea of how to play.  Seems like locking onto boss is a bad idea?  Also I am low on bullets, etc.  Do I have to farm so that I have full pots/bullets/molotovs just to beat first boss?  

Cleric Beast?  You can kind of hit another one too, but Cleric is meant to be first I think.   You don't really need bullets for CB.  What weapon are you using?  Mostly I'd say to just stay on him and take advantage of regain.  

Remember you can usually just run to them past a lot of bad guys once you know where they are and have the shortcuts open, though you may want to kill enemies for bullets/vials if you are low.

Yeah cleric beast.  What do you mean about regain (on I just googled this, ok if you hit him when the bar hasn't dropped you get the HP back)?  I have a hunter axe I think?  I use it one hand and I have a pistol.  I've gotten him to half health and otherwise he just owns me.  

I got him.  Needed molotovs.

I'm just a pseudo Apple fanboy, I don't drool over every Apple announcement and upgrade everything yearly, but I am fairly well equipped with a suite of iStuff.

I could see myself eventually being interested in a smart watch of some sort, but this first gen Apple one is too expensive and too ugly for me.  Someone poke me when they have a cheaper, thinner one with a circular face and better features and battery life.

Sir Jony is on record saying no round face because it cuts out too much space for the main purpose of reading text.

Which is silly because you can display just as much text on a round face, just with more extra screen on the edges.  I've fiddled with a friend's Moto 360 which looks pretty slick and manages to be round without the world crashing down around it.

I'll eat my hat if Apple doesn't release a round one in a few years, and maybe by then I'll want one.

I'd wager all the other manufacturers will switch to rectangular faces to copy Apple.

Let's make this interesting and turn it into a real wager.  In 3 year's time we'll see who's right, and the winner gets rittchard's watch.

It's a deal!  nod

They use different systems? I didn't know that. Aren't Google Wallet and Apple Pay on the same system (NFC), so you should be able to use either when you see the NFC symbol? I remember reading when CVS shut it off because of Apple Pay, it also shut off Google Wallet as well.

As I understand it, it's not about the NFC, it's about the proprietary smart wallet stuff.  They can both technically connect, I guess, but if a store is aligned with one and not the other, it won't work.  So far the dividing line seems to be between Apple Pay and CurrentC, which I don't think is even out yet.  Many stores are already aligned with that, though, and aren't taking ApplePay as a result.  Wal-Mart is one of them.  If you go into a Wal-Mart, you may well see an NFC thingie at checkout, but you can't use ApplePay.

Most of the existing ones use NFC as I understand it.  CurrentC (which will fail miserably imo) uses an app which produces a QR code that the cashier needs to scan.  CVS, et al turned off all the NFC terminals when Apple Pay was launched in hopes it would not gain traction.  In doing so, they also disabled google wallet etc.  There is no way to explicitly turn off Apple Pay and still use NFC (as I understand it).

Having NFC is just how it connects, I think. 

It's like having a card swiper at checkout but not accepting American Express, for example.  Sure, technically, the machine could read an American Express card, but if the store isn't accepting the card, you're out of luck.



Yes but when CVS turned off their NFC readers after Apple Pay launched, it stopped all NFC payments.  Alternately, Peet's coffee (here in SF bay) is not an Apple Pay "partner", but they have NFC terminals and my Apple Pay works just fine there.

Samsung pay should be interesting since I believe it uses regular card reading which is basically everywhere. Since Samsung bought http://www.looppay.com/

But it's Samsung. Tongue I am not sure how much I trust them. Of course I just HATE my Samsung TV so I might be biased. They are not good at software if their smart TVs are of any evidence.

CurrentC stands a chance just because of Walmart I think. They are such a market force, and if they make it worth using the system for price discounts, loyalty programs,  and coupons it could catch on. Of course, with having to link your checking account to their service, it seems to be asking for trouble.

I forgot about the checking account part.  I just don't see how anyone uses that system.

Considering that they went through a major upheaval of the game last year, they're likely going back and redoing more stuff, instead of trying to use scenarios created for the prior version, whatever it was under Hennig and Co.

Naughty Dog with a delay is most likely a good thing. We've seen how bad things can get when an Uncharted game is rushed. The last thing we need is more of Uncharted 3's rushed encounter design.

It's $16 I think on uverse for HBO.  I think this version is for people who don't have cable, but want HBO.
