From Software has more than made a name for itself when it comes to making frustratingly difficult RPGs, and Bloodborne has been no exception.
The Old Hunters DLC was released in November to overall praise, even though it took the game’s difficulty up a notch, and even angered some players with it’s accessability, it has still captured many fans and is being rapidly dissected by the community.
Playing at the hardest difficulty of New Game + 7 (NG+7) – he’s also decided to go without weapons. Yep, you read the correctly. He’s like Rocky Balboa in the meat shop, just punching his way through piles of smelly dead carcasses, with the kind of anger and ferocity only displayed by a man on a mission.
Upon encountering one of the most difficult bosses in the game, Ludwig the Accursed, he lost roughly 12 hours to attempts at winning. However, in one epic 38 minute battle, he finally succeeded. If you have the time, watch the video. His moves are repetitive, his focus undeterred, and his determination enduring.
