Titan Souls isn't much like Dark Souls, but the Prepare to Die tagline still works.

Bloodborne's apparently successful launch (see note below) has yielded two interesting points, for me.  One is that it's being hailed as the PS4's savior (see note below) and the other is that it seems to have serious technical problems.  Conversations erupting around...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Redeemed, officially!

Posted on Friday, July 9 @ 17:03:30 Eastern by
I had never reached a 100% completion statistics in a Rockstar Game... until last week!

Unfortunately, I never had the stomach to go all the way to the end in any Grand Theft Auto game, what with the massive amounts of collecting that entails.  In Grand Theft Auto IV, I couldn't even summon the patience to find and complete all of the unique stunt jumps.  In that sense, I've never reached a 100% completion statistic in a Grand Theft Auto game, but last week, over my vacation, I summoned the energy and conviction to reach that point in Red Dead Redemption.



I loved everything about RDR from start to finish, so it certainly made it easier to head back in and complete the rest of the game as that one character no one likes.  I had already played through the story, completed about 90% of the stranger missions, and a handful of the minigames and odd jobs.  Having no Xbox Live connection and a desire to saddle up and ride again had me stick the disk in the tray and never look back.

I wrangled up the rest of the outfits, completed all of the hideouts, and found every location and gun in the game, but there was still the daunting task of the ambient challenges left.  If you haven't played Red Dead Redemption, what's wrong with you?  The ambient challenges are persistent objectives that are always being measured as you play the game.  I think my favorites were the hunting challenges, while survivalist challenges that have the player searching for flowers (so manly!) were my least liked aspect of the game.  PROTIP: Use a survivalist map.  They're available at all the general stores and they vastly increase the radius in which flower markers will pop up on your mini-map.

Anyways, after a lot of hard work but a TON of enjoyment, I've got 100% on Red Dead Redemption.  How far along are you?
