So I've picked up my Collector's Edition copy of Bloodborne today at GameStop and so far I must say this really was well worth the wait and it indeed is one of those must have titles for the PS4.
The game doesn't really hold back on you even at the start as the afflicted villagers, that have grown rather long and now are also grotesquely deformed because of the plague known only as Scourge of the Beast, deal quite considerable amount of damage with their pitchforks, axes and other weapons they have, yes even rifles so you gotta be really quick on your feet when dealing with them.
It is a very dark and moody world you're entering as well and as usual From Software delivers an outstanding atmosphere here and you can't help but to feel like that there's always something around the corner, just waiting to tear you apart.
I actually prior to getting the game read an article on Kotaku that gave some good tips for those who are starting out for the first time in the game, the best advice was that you pick the saw cleaver as your melee weapon and the blunderbuss as your ranged weapon for the start and that you also stick with them due to how versatile they are.
Here's the article itself, but do bear in mind that there are two sections, the first one is mostly spoiler free and the second one is very heavy on spoilers, I haven't checked the second section as I do want to be surprised by the game and so should most gamers unless they're absolutely stuck and in need of help:
