Reader Discussion: How Much Souls Experience Are You Bringing Into Bloodborne?

Bloodborne is finally here, and while we're all pretty excited to play through it, we know the challenge that we're likely in for. Some of us here at Game Informer are seasoned veterans of From Software's punishing brand of action, while others are jumping into Bloodborne with minimal Souls experience.

I have almost no experience with the Souls series heading into Bloodborne, so I'm expecting to be thoroughly punished for the neglect I've paid to From Software's popular series. Because of this, I have my concerns about getting into the game and understanding the flow, since it sounds like it has the potential to be even more difficult than the Dark Souls games.

If you're picking up Bloodborne, how much experience do you have with the Souls series? Which Souls game was your favorite? What do you think of Bloodborne from our coverage to this point?

Also, if you're excited for Bloodborne, stick around until later tonight to catch our review, guides, and live stream.

Fantasy Flight Bringing XCOM To The Tabletop This Year

The melding of digital and tabletop isn’t a new phenomenon, as anyone who has played Scene-It or one of the many VHS-based “interactive board games” will recall. As tablets become more common though, the experiences have started to mature.

We’ve seen the blend of these two mediums in titles like Harebrained Schemes’ Kickstarted Golem Arcana. Now, 2K Games, Firaxis, and Fantasy Flight are taking advantage of the concept for XCOM: The Board Game.

In addition to the board, cards, and pieces representing UFOs, Interceptors, and XCOM troops, the game is managed in part on a tablet (or via an online tool). The free app is responsible for executing the alien invasion and responding to your actions. The idea is to create an feeling similar to the critically lauded XCOM: Enemy Unknown without exactly duplicating it.

It also enables a team of players to tackle the game at three different difficulty levels. The concept takes the cooperative nature of games like Arkham Horror, which use a system of card draws and “programmed” enemy movement, in a new direction.

Each player will take on a unique role: commander, chief scientist, central officer, and squad leader. Each takes on a specialist role, responsible for part of the team’s operations.

Fantasy Flight will release the game at retail during the holiday season this year. For an in-depth look at the game, check out a preview in the September 2014 issue.
