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

The Return of the Revenge of Ninjatown

Posted on Wednesday, September 24 @ 17:13:57 Eastern by Blake_Morse
Last Friday the distinguished Chris Hudak and I had the opportunity to attend what will probably be the last pre-launch event for the upcoming, delightfully quirky tower defense game known as Ninjatown. Chris was already out in San Francisco, so I was left with nothing but my own cunning and Ninja skills to get me to my destination. I guess I must’ve been off that day, since I ended walking up one of the many tremendously steep hills in SF unnecessarily in my unending fervor to complete my mission on time.
 
And I did. Granted I was a little more flushed and sweaty than most ninja but my trip was well worth it. The whole shindig went down at a very interesting little store/art gallery called Double Punch. Now, I’m a guy whose been to quite a few of these geeky art toy stores, but this one had escaped me(probably because it’s in the snoody part of SF). What a cool little place to have an event.
 
After perusing the wares for a bit and spending too much money on tiny little Japanese capsule imports, it was time to get down to business. I made my way upstairs to where Shawn Smith, creator of Ninjatown and Shawnimals was waiting.
 
Shawn is one of my favorite dudes to kick it with and interview. He’s such a laid back humble dude and one heck of an illustrator. Since it was an art gallery there was a ton concept art and one of a kind paintings up everywhere. Shawn and I hung out for awhile and talked about different illustration techniques and played some multiplayer Ninjatown on the DSs they had available.
 
The multiplayer mode turned out to be quite addicting. Players have their own town they must defend from waves of enemies, just like in single-player mode, but if you happen to be in the lead, the losing player can steal from you at the end of a wave. This takes away any advantage that player would’ve had, effectively leveling the playing field. It’s a great way to stop matches from landsliding in one player’s favor.
 
Even with the tactical balance, Shawn managed to whoop my ass thoroughly every single time. But like any good ninja I’m just biding my time until I get revenge. The next time we meet, Shawn, it is I who will be the master and you who will be the student.

A Lightning-Fast Gallery!
