Bloodborne definitely gives brainpower a whole new meaning.

Oh lord, you just reminded me of one of the DLC items that really alters your appearance due to the item being heavily related to Insight.

 

Let's just say it's close to the Nightmare of Mensis levels of "what on earth is that."

I think it gives blood lust a whole new meaning.

Yeah - the "cross-save" feature basically takes where you are in the game on one console and puts you in the same place on another console, but does so by making an approximation of what items, skills, and levels you might have. For example, I was working on a complete bestiary, and wound up at level 99 for all of the characters available in the first portion of the game before the mid-point

.  I got the Spell of Restoration from a priest and switched to the PS4 version only to find all of my characters with levels somewhere in the mid-30s, fewer than half of the skills I worked to raise, 1/4 of the gold, and none of the rare items/equipment I got through drops.  Needless to say, I reverted back to the 3DS version.

Good to know.

 

Ill probably only get one version then.

 

Well...at first...ill probably want both eventually.

I guess that would make Bloodborne, Bloodporn.

 

Only if you're German...

That's what I had figured.  The codes I had seen were far too short to account for all of the same data transferring.  Then again, this was not a feature I cared for.  My plan being to replay each version from scratch.  It's more fun that way, though it is annoying trying to get the same rares over again, apparently DQ11 isn't as painful to hunt rares as say...Yangus and SSS or the 3DS' Red and her version of autosteal, which I'm coming to find is less potent than I had initially thought.

 

Still, it is a little sad they never thought to include certain data, like if % sections of regions are completed in terms of enemies, if you have particularly rare items/equipment found, and at least level/skill point amount (if not distribution) data.  Maybe the length of the code would have been too complex to tack that in and they stuck with just story position with fixed attributes/etc. or some algorithm that creates maybe some randomization based on average playthroughs.  I guess that last element would be fun to test...so much to test though.  Too much to test these days.

Wait. According to what calender does fall go into December? That's the first I've ever heard of that, and I'm struggling to see the logic in it.

In northern hemisphere, Fall is September 22 to December 21.  So... all Calendars north of the equator I guess.

Did a bit of research, and it seems there's an "astronomical" fall that indeed stretches from equinox to solstice, making it the last of the four seasons in the astronomical cycle of the sun.

Calender wise, it's always been september/october/november. Though judging by the English Wikipedia page I guess there might be a different "stance" in North America, but it's a little difficult to decipher. I guess you can justify it in areas with a warmer climate, but but honestly, it sounds pretty absurd to me to start calling December a part of "fall". Hell, even claiming that we are still in fall right now honestly feels like a stretch. :P We had to drive home through a snow storm yesterday.

At the end of the day, I guess it does mean Squarenix theoretically could have until late December to let us know anything, though I wouldn't keep my hopes up ;)

Ha ha, I totally know what you mean.  At my latitude, we've got snow in October sometimes and it usually stays around for good starting in November (i.e. doesn't just immediately melt).  I've been skating on the pond behind my house for a couple of weeks already, so when I hear that the announcement may come later this fall, I definitely have the same reaction as you.

Anyway, hoping for news soon.

Well, it's December... they got like 19 days to fall within the "Fall" window for updates. Maybe Horii will drop some news on Christmas...

Perhaps they are going to announce something at PlayStation Experience? Even I can't see them doing that but I can only hope.

That'd be cool. Personally I'm hoping more for another dragon-related franchise gets an announcement at PSX (Spyro the Dragon). Not that I'd be disappointed in hearing about DQ by any means.

As much as I would love to see any info released, I would prefer not giving the impression of console favouritism.  Sure it might make for a great opening for the PS4 version, and they could always release 3DS screens later, but it may be seen as a slap in the face to Nintendo and might trigger bad blood between Square, Enix, and Nintendo all over again, just like the mid-late 90's.

Nevermind that any 3DS showcasing would be overshadowed completely by the PS4, and likely ignored by the majority of the press, who might focus less on the game than they should, and more on the politics of PS4 favouritism, despite Nintendo's open ended (though piss poor, almost as an afterthought...petty words of wanting to reinvigorate DQ in the West mean little these days when their actions are half-baked and half-hearted) handling of most of the DQ releases.

No bad blood, it's pretty common to do that stuff. I don't think there are any reason to draw on the "Playstation Experience" audience though.

Why even worry about the localization of XI? We're getting it, I just hope on all platforms.

So nothing on PSXperience... Good for me, since that decreases the exclusivity chances. But then, when do they plan to announce it? Back in june they said it'd be this year...
