Anyone playing Bloodborne? Mike's recent post on CthulhuCon made me think of it. I'm a n00b to the Souls games, so it's been a bit of a...frustrating experience acclimating to the difficulty, but the strangeness of the lore (there are a lot of Lovecraftian elements there) keeps me coming back for more punishment.

Dear Esther is definitely an interesting experience. It's not quite a game. A better definition would be interactive fiction. It lasts around two hours, and is best played in one sitting. And I'll admit at the end I was moved, and shed a manly tear. I blame it on good timing of visuals and music. ;D


Thanks for the info guys.
Dear Ester does look interesting, but obviously short and perhaps without replay value.


We played "Dear Esther" over the last days. It is a fantastic game. I am deeply fascinated by the mystic and emotion it contains. Not only the pictures but especially the story is captivating and wondrous. There is a deeper sense behind the story that stretches out to the edges of time and space. But, how to understand the game and story, is left all alone to the player. I definitely recommend the replaying.
