You’re a prop in a godly mating ritual in Bloodborne – and you have no idea

WARNING: YOU’RE IN THE BLOODBORNE SPOILER SPLASH RADIUS

Despite the fact that I’ve been playing Dark Souls 3 religiously (just this side of ritualistically) for the last month, my mind always seems to stray back to Bloodborne, because I can’t get my mind off its fascinating story. You wouldn’t necessarily know it had one if you charge through without looking – it’s hard to miss the cthulhu demons clinging to everything with a steeple, but what’s actually going on beneath the surface in this beast-ravaged city is a lot harder to parse.

Even worse, if you choose to pursue the final and most elusive ending – where you encounter a mysterious god called the Moon Presence and promptly battle it to the death – you may have no idea why it’s significant enough to act as your last, most pivotal encounter. In fact, you probably won’t, because it’s never once referred to by name before descending from on high to ruin your day.

There’s no real answer to that question – that’s the beauty of the Souls series and its famous ambiguity. But there’s plenty of evidence scattered throughout Yharnam to build a case, and I’ve come upon a fascinating theory: the Moon Presence is the thing that started you on your journey in the first place, so you will destroy the reproductive rival stealing all its viable human mates.

Welcome to my humble blog, where I pour all of the video game-related ideas that burrow into my brain. Most of the time I’ll post written pieces on topics of paramount importance – like why the Fallen explode like Roman candles in Destiny or what’s up with the sex lives of animal gods in Bloodborne – but you can also expect to see videos from my YouTube channel, and pictures of my latest video game craft projects. It’s my way of letting everyone know I was here with a resounding cry of NEEEEEEEEEEEEERD. 

Read, enjoy, tell me I’m maybe digging a little too deep into those three words of dialogue in that one spin-off nobody remembers – there’s plenty of room around here. A logic-defying amount, even.
