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

Rock Solid Programming

I've written thousands of video game reviews in my lifetime. I've written about the graphics, the controls, the plots, the music, the characters and the bugs, but this might be the first time I have ever praised a game for stability.

When I got into work this Monday morning and sat down, nursing a well deserved hangover (that's what I get for drinking all night with a friend who's 6'4" and probably outweighs me by 80 pounds), and I noticed that Medieval II: Total War was still minimized on my taskbar. I realized it had been running there for about three weeks, and every few days I had occasionally alt-tabbed my way to it for a quick battle. I clicked the button, and sure enough, it came right back up where I had left it, running perfectly.

Running for three weeks would have been impressive enough, but this is on my work computer which never gets shut down because of the server monitors I run. I am a multitasker. It is well noted. Currently I am running MS Word (5 open documents), Gaim, Fireworks, Dreamweaver, Internet Explorer (4 windows), Firefox (9 windows), Thunderbird, and Adobe Acrobat.

All that, and I can still alt-tab right in and out of a game that's been running solidly for three weeks. Creative Assembly, in these days of buggy releases that get eventually fixed by patches (or not) even on our consoles, I take my hat off to you. I also replace it with a helm, because I'm off for another quick battle.
