Why they allow this yet can't add a copy option between system and external drive is still mind boggling, but whatever.
They encrypt it so it's harder to pirate / cheat on trophies. Otherwise, what stops you from cloning 100 times and just leave 100 PS4s offline with access to all the games?
Bloodborne is so much easier than the other souls games if you can get past the sword/board mentality that you developed. Rally mechanic makes it almost unfair.
Bloodborne is easier if you usually play aggressively. I don't know if I'll ever have the mindset to play only defensively, or stealthily.
In general, I prioritize parry > dodge > attack > block, so Bloodborne was extremely natural for me. Worked out for Infinite Climax mode in Bayonetta too.
