If someone had told 2009 me that eventually I'd be getting not just one, but two spiritual sequels to Demon's Souls, the little masochistic part of me that loves that game would have exploded.

I am grateful, however, that Bloodborne's aesthetic heads in at least a slightly different direction. Dark, wet, gritty, creepy and Victorian as opposed to dark, wet, gritty, creepy and medieval.
