I need some advice before playing 'Bloodborne' for the first time

Hey y'all newcomer to soulsborne games here (but how would I know this term amirite) just thinking how I know every person on this forum loves this game And I should be able to get a good 5 page topic of replies out of this. Can't wait to see your replies y'all. So before I start any tips? Any special way y'all hold the remote? How many times should I blink? I'm up to father Gascoigne on my first try this is too easy imma play something else unless y'all tell me not to (but then I'll do it anyway). Discuss.

Era seems to have implemented data control options (i.e. how your data is collected and used) and it is absolutely horrendous... by far the worst setup that I've experienced on a website. To turn off the data collection, you have to manually change a switch for every company they use... and there are hundreds. Literally.

Can't be arsed to do that so have just removed their web address from my bookmarks list.

You can disable all of them at once by clicking "Allow All" and then clicking it again.

Is there any link to show the options again?

Edit: apparently no, it's a case of deleting cookies.

I tried that and it didn't work, but that's a joke how much information they're sharing.

I'm not sure how you report a GDPR breach but please do it.

The Information Commissioner's Office.

Getting a letter from a lawyer would be an option too to gooseberry fool them up. :shifty:

I would've preferred to see them break away from this ad bullshittery when Era launched, and try the more transparent Patreon route or something, but I suppose the owners were more interested in quietly profiting off the community.

It doesn't show up without javascript

I genuinely don't know how that affects the legal position of things like this.

I'm glad we only send all of our sensitive personal data to the Dark Lord Steve (praise be unto him oh Lord of Sorrow) for his own nefarious purposes.

That’s what Karl wants you to think. He sells all of our data on the darkweb and buys hard drugs with it. The little scamp.

Speaking of which, where is Karl - feels like he hasn't posted in a while?

Perhaps he's too busy with those darkweb drugs?

He hasn't :-( ... but I believe he is just taking a time-out due to juggling a few issues at the moment. It'll be good to see Karl back here :D .

the only tracking going on throughout this forum is finding out grown men don't know how to wipe their arse, are too scared to talk to the opposite sex, like anime tits, lose their minds over a 7/10 and so on.

:lol:
