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

Oh boy, a new Tales Of game? Gosh, I hope it will be a high-fantasy anime-styled JRPG... that would be so unique.

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...

What do these ratings mean?

The Good: The best graphics seen in any game so far, superb story and voice acting, simple yet satisfying combat, great free-running engine, crowd AI works

The Bad: The game doesn't have an ending (as in it just ends), gets repetitive after awhile

The first thing I want to say is that the game is getting such low scores due to the game being so repetitive. The game consists of constant information gathering by helping your fellow assassin informers either assassinate targets or collect flags, pickpocket people, interrogate people, climb up on high points to "synchronize" your memory (more on that later), saving citizens from the guards heresy and so on. To me this didn't get repetitive because everything is free form and unscripted.
                           
                    The game consists of connecting cities and in each city you can free-fun and climb ANY building and ANY wall. That's right, no looking for glowing ledges or vines just run and run like a mad man to run from guards (you have to loose their line of sight and hide in either a scholar crowd, a bench, stacks of hay etc.) The story is very interesting. In the "real world" you play Desmond Miles who is captured to due a government experiment to use his ancestors DNA in his blood to change the past. You get put on a machine called the Animus and you must go back to 1191 B.C. and play as Altair who is Miles' ancestor. You must stop the crusades and the Templars. Along the way there are great plot twists and this keeps the story fresh. The voice acting is superb and even has some great humor.

                    The combat system is awesome, while it's simple it's still very satisfying with great animations. The graphics are the best EVER seen in a next-gen game with tons of detail and depth in every blade of grass and stitch in every piece of clothing. The game is breath taking (especially on HDTVs). The game's main attraction is the crowd AI where if you run through a crowd you'll stumble and fall and the people will call for guards. This determines whether the people help you escape and hide or hinder you. The only frustrating thing about the game is that the game doesn't want to respond too well when running from guards. Other than that this is one of the best games I've ever played and you're bound to love it.
