The game will also support TIE Fighter, X-wing and Millennium Falcon dogfights.

Finally, according to the AP, the game will be getting a free downloadable level, set on Jakku, available two weeks before Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters Dec. 18.

Make sure to check back at 1:30 p.m. ET for our full report and stories on our time with the game once the embargo lifts.

My brain just exploded. So IN it's not even funny.

Pretty much this.  Absolutely epic.

The other thing that blew my mind was during the Episode 7 panel live broadcast, they brought out the fully functioning remote controlled BB-8 ball droid on the stage, proving that it was not a CGI creation but a working mechanical prop. I'm sure it works based on some complex magnetic system but it was a magical moment when it rolled out. I'm as jaded as any movie fan nowadays and that was an "oh wow" moment for me. JJ Abrams discussed the fact that they wanted to shoot as much of the movie as they could using practical sets and props. Sure the movie will have a ton of CG effects, but to Abrams, a lot of the magic of the original trilogy is that you felt like you were there because the world and the vehicles felt so real. Something the prequel trilogy really lacked in it's overuse of blue screen and CG everything. That aspect alone has me so excited and I have all the faith in the world that episode 7 is in very good hands.

Between Marvel and Lucasfilm, the Disney corporation has pretty much become the overlords of all of nerd-dom, and I don't even mind one bit!  icon_smile

Here's the BB-8 video.  So cool.

I got the witches down on my second try and nearly on the first.  So far they were the easiest boss for me.  I bought a 20k echo weapon and started using it in L1 mode so that it's 2H and I have been tearing through stuff now.  Much more enjoyable when you can take it back to the baddies so quickly.

Buy Apple stock! 

I am actually doing an analysis paper on AAPL for a finance class right now. I want to put some money into it because their numbers are great, but it seems expensive right now. That's always my problem though, I struggle with the when to enter more than anything else.

Hehe - it always seems expensive... but then it keeps going up and just gets more expensive!  I debate this with a friend of mine a few times each year, and each time he has ignored my advice.  Had he invested the first time I suggested it, he would have made a lot of money by now.  My philosophy with Apple is this: do you think it will go up even 5-10% over the next year?  If so, why not just invest in it rather than leave your money in a 0.5% (or whatever it is these days) share certificate?  If you believe in the company and its products (which he claims he does), its almost a no-brainer. 

This is what I did starting in 2011.  I rode through the 2012/2013 dip and now I am in good shape.  Wish I would have put more in back then!

When am I supposed to fight...
Spoiler for Hiden:
the big guy banging on one side of a gate.  There's a trio of crow monsters in the courtyard near him.

With a brick?  Those guys are easy to parry/visceral, I think you can get a stagger off on him too from behind then visceral attack.  The only guy early on you probably shouldn't fight is the big guy with the axe near the gate behind some boxes.

So funny.  This is the kind of thing I'm struggling to wrap my head around.  Guy banging on the gate screamed "mid-boss" to me, so I haven't tried engaging him at all yet.  Guy behind some boxes looked like "tough challenge to give a go" and I had numerous failed attempts against him. 

Ok, I'll give all this stuff a try.  Thanks all for the tips.

Armored guy behind boxes is much tougher. Not really sure why he's there other than an early challenge.

You can but do not have to.  It's just a regular mob.  If you go up the stairs opposite from where you enter he will come after you.  They are to teach move and attack imo.

Do you need to keep the badges in your bag to get the benefits from them, or can you bank them?

Do you have a limited amount of storage space on your person?  I haven't actually put anything into the bank and wondering if I need to start.

There's pretty much no reason to ever move anything to storage, other than you  don't want to scroll past so many things in your inventory when looking at armor/weapons. Game does away with weight mechanics.  Storage is really only for overflow of carryable item allotment.  They really should have auto refilled everything like they do with vials/bullets.

Thanks forge

I'm not so sure you can have NPC helpers, most likely it was another player who joined in to help you.  Nice to get past the BSB though, that took me awhile until I used the cocktails to distract him.

Nope it was an NPC, there are some bosses that allow this as long as you talk to the friendly NPC beforehand from what I read.

As a Surface 3 owner, I am not sure their growing pains are over, but it has come a long way. It's biggest problem isn't Microsofts fault though, it's that most software doesn't support touch controls. (A Surface Pro would be my first recommendation for a Windows based laptop, it's a great little machine.)

Anyway, people following the Chinese stores last night, showed that the gold watches sold out within the first hour. Of course we have no idea on the qualities available, but it shows that Apple isn't completely nuts.

They sold out in the US just as fast. All models did.

you could go to old yarnham.

I'm an apple fan (laptops, OSX, iphones) but the apple watch is just lame. 10k for one with a gold finish is beyond stupid. I'm betting its gonna be a flop...

Who cares there is a gold expensive one? It's not like they are pushing it on you, it's for a certain kind of person that isn't most of us. If there is a market for that kind of thing, which I am sure they researched, then it was a good business decision.

People said the iPhone and iPad would flop. They didn't, obviously. I do think it will become like the iPad, still sell incredibly well, but not be a product everyone wants. Other companies can only dream of having an Apple flop.

If last night was any indication, the launch brought in decent numbers.

Seriously, this line of thinking is there's only 1 version and it's 10k.

Still stuck on Gascoigne, though I downed Cleric Beast first try and at this point I can clear pretty much the entirety of Central Yarnham without breaking a sweat or using any consumables (though I have to cheap-kill the werewolves, getting into a running battle with them seems to be a recipe for a quick death). I've leveled up a bunch of times but I can still barely get him to half health.

I think I need to get better at using oil+molotovs, I always hoard consumables and end up struggling through fights I really shouldn't. Otherwise I guess I'll just eventually level to the point where I can either kick his ass or soak the damage.

The charge attack of the two-handed axe works wonders.  It has a big range and will almost always hit him at least once. 

Also, for those wondering what stats mean, clicking the right stick on the character screen will bring up tooltips that explain what each stat means.

I used the 2 hand axe to take him out also.  And molotovs for phase 2.

Getting the 42mm black Sports as well. Reading around the Internet, that seems to be the far most popular option.

I actually like the silver casing (aluminum), but since they don't pair it with a blank band by default I will get space grey.  I didn't want to spend an extra $50 just to get the band I wanted.

I am curious about echoes lost when you are killed. I have read that if you are killed a second time before you get your echoes back, they are gone forever. There have been a couple instances where I was on my way to retrieve some and got killed again and figured they were gone. I would then end up getting them back on another attempt after killing an enemy. Do they remain longer (indefinitely?) if picked up by an enemy?

Maybe it's the echoes that you gained while going back to pick up the original pool?  Those new echoes would make their own blood pool if you died again.

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.

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.
110  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS4] Bloodborne (previously known as Project Beast) on: April 08, 2015, 01:32:37 PM
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.
