Cut Bloodborne Footage Shows Off Father Gascoigne As A Companion (VIDEO)
Regardless of your overall experiences with Bloodborne, it is hard to deny that Father Gascoigne, the game’s first mandatory boss, represents the first ‘make or break’ point for aspiring Hunters. While in itself the encounters with the good Father – both as a helpful aid versus the Cleric Beast and as a boss fight – are awe-inspiring, developer FromSoftware apparently almost used him as a friendly – and talkative – NPC companion.
The news comes by way of popular dataminer Lance McDonald, whose datamining efforts span the entire Dark Souls series. McDonald’s latest efforts were posted on April 1st in a new video showing off the cut content featuring Father Gascoigne. Check it out below:
It is unknown what the reasoning was behind the decision to remove most of the friendly encounters with Father Gascoigne from Bloodborne, though Lance McDonald does have a few suggestions as to why the decision was made. “Another one of those cases where I can’t really imagine why they removed this,” he said in the comments section of his video. “Did they not want to be too explicit about the nature of nightmares? Keep some mystery around “Are all the hunters in the same nightmare? Or are they all experiencing it differently? Not sure, really. Either way, good to hear that awesome voice work one more time!”
At least we got to hear his “If it moves, you can be sure it’s a beast” line, which originated from The Game Awards 2014 trailer for the title. Not unlike the moon, everything has finally come full circle.
Bloodborne is now available exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
