Whoops, I missed the initial announcement. :oops:

I didn't anticipate the DLC being about the Old Hunters and Byrgenwerth, but I should've. That is where it all began, after all. Announcing the DLC two months before release though, that was highly unexpected but not unwelcome. Enough time to savor it, soon enough to not go mad.

Ludwig being a boss was entirely unexpected, though it does answer the question of what happened to him.

That trailer...

1:14 - agblgblblrrghhrrhhnnngghh oh god my genitals. Scream is identical to Cleric Beast's, appears to cause either knockback or knockdown, after which the dude gleefully DIVES onto the poor gargoyle and starts EATING it. Head and upper body are covered in beast hair, which appear to be sparking with bits of electricity. Seems to be a reskin with benefits, like the dragonoid form of Dark Souls. Considering the character has the Beast Claw equipped, I'm going to go out on a limb and say this is a result of beasthood. That screeeam and the luncheon dive don't resemble any attack the Beast Claw normally has, so either this effect changes the weapon's moveset, or certain items like the Beast Roar work differently while this is active and the dive is just a new type of critical only available in this state. The electrical sparks in his fur remind me that the Beast Claw says it's made from the still living bones of a Darkbeast.

Edit: Odd note, upper left arm is covered in fur, upper right arm appears to be bare. And I think the "sparks" I saw might've just been me being confused by the roar's particle effects, as someone pointed out to me on 4chan.

Also, did I spy a rocket hammer?

no...
NOOOOOOO!

I won't be able to play it on release!

I need to get painkillers prescribed and shoot myself in the knee so I can stay home.

No NA dates though? :( and it is odd that it's coming out in Japan AFTER the others....

Having said that. HHHNNNNNNNGGGGGGG
<IRC User> I wonder how long you'll last in this community Berto.
<IRC User> Probably not for long.

So they stuck a saw-Logwheel on a stick and made it like the Kirk? interesting. It looks like there will be quite a few new weapons, but let's hope they patch the main issues in the existing game and keep the new weapons in balance with the rest while not making any of them obsolete. Other than that, it looks like it will be a really good DLC. Thanks for sharing, Meph :gp:

I definitely need to unload my new basement, find the box with my ps4, and hook it up so I can finish BB. The DLC looks great!
