Bloodborne
As games get bigger, get used to the phrase 'procedurally generated.' Procedurally generated means that, instead of artists rendering each part of the world from scratch and then having the computer render the world as designed, the computer uses a set of algorithms to build the world as it is experienced. Bloodborne is a Gothic RPG in a city suffering from a strange illness. The procedural rendering allows for an ever-changing world instead of the RPGs of just a few years ago, which can often feel stock even when one is designed by a design team. Brought to you by the makers of the Dark Souls series, this promises to offer a single and multi-player experience with long playing value.

Re: Still busy with the older ones.
True.  But I take my time.  I game rarely -- because otherwise, I game too much and I wouldn't get any work done.

@Joe- Well, some of them don't come out until fall. When you get the last 7% they'll be waiting.
