    I literally just realized that the Valkyrie is the "Pure Miriam" version that was promised during the kickstarted campaign, guess they reduced its role to a armor set. You can tell they ran out of steam at the end since the Den of Behemots is an asset recycle factory, it was supposed to be a oversized gambler's room for giants, which is why its boss is the Gambler dude. The last area is just okay, I like the 9th Circle of Hell thingy it's trying to invoke but it doesn't really have the same weight as your usual Iga game.

    I'm probably not going to dedicate much time crafting stuff. Blue Rose is Miriam's original concept weapon but those crafting requirements are something else.

    Fucking loved it, overall. The cons are heavily outweighted by the pros. Feels like a third Aria game with a SotN approach. IGA gave us not one but two proper legit games out of his kikestarter. All these devs should take some fucking notes.

    IGA had to work his ass off to make this thing happen, to the point where he was refused by pretty much every big name publisher before even considering crowdfunding. Motherfucker better get some respect now, especially since their PR said the sales crashed their expectations.

    If you don't want Carabousse over her support skills just go for whatever you feel like. Silver Knight gains some abilities later on but it's really nothing special. A maxed out Dullahead familiar is basically another Welcome Company but with longer range, it fucking wipes everything off the screen.

    Yahtzee's review just made me realize something really obvious. Dracula is public domain, Iga could've just used all of the shit in Castlevania and Konami couldn't have done shit about it.

    I get why he didn't use it, though. That would be like a direct fuck you to Konami and IGA didn't really leave the place flipping tables and fingers.

    Besides, I was reading an interview with him the other day, and he says he would be very interested in collaborating with Konami in a new Castlevania if they want, more specifically he says he would like to show Dracula's defeat in 1999 that was mentioned in the series.

    100%ed it. :skysun

    Altho tho only 100% I'm missing is the techniques. I'll just free up one after noon one day to do that, but I platinumed it either way.

    Devil May Cry V and REmake 2 were honestly some of the best games I've ever played, and finishing those games left me pretty emotional afterwards. But my undisputed GOTY has to be Bloodstained. Played for nearly 42 hours, and I've had the stupidest nerdiest smile glued on my face the entire time playing. It was just pure uncut unadulterated joy. THIS IS WHAT A FUCKING VIDEO GAME SHOULD BE.

    I'm so sucking happy man. :cry

    Goddamn, the 8-bit Flame shard is such a pain in the ass to get. I've been hunting for it for the past hour. :catcry

    Still not going so far as 100% it but I'll do most of the shit like like map, recipes, hairstyles and shards. Techniques and armor seems like Autismos Maximus 9000 so I'll put that aside and wait for the kikestarter stretch goals.

    Speaking of which, I'm only missing 2 hairstyles and I'm probably just gonna use a guide at this point. I feel I combed this entire fucking place. Last style I got is Kyakoin's from Stardust Crusaders. Good shit.

    2019 might have been a pretty shit year for me but I don't remember the last time I played so many games out of genuine enjoyment instead of just playing out of boredom. Future's so bright, I gotta wear shades.

    Whore's luck.

    I found platinuming it very doable IMO.

    Still got Doom and Asstral chain left to go. Among other stuff.

    Zangetsu when :catfish



    BTW how do different character even work? Like they will have different abilities or story? Like if we get to play as zangetsu he will have the same shards stabbing system? Because AFAIK he's not a Shardbinder..... And he disappeared vs gremory so how will it work?

    Crafted Andromeda. Turns out it's an auto-targeting whip.



    I see what you did there, IGA.

    A gunbuild is so absolutely fucking broken, you gotta wonder why did they even bother to nerf a bunch of shit with the latest patch.

    There should be a new prompt on your cleared save data. Don't remember if it's R1 or R2 or something.

    Don't worry, it happened to me too.

    The good thing about it is that there's only 3 endings, and you found one of them.

    Oh yeah last week I finished this, got all three endings, cleared 100% of the map, completed every side quest except the food for the old lady because I was getting tired of it, nor did I got the hairstyles, all weapons, etc..., I'm not a completionist to that point.



    Loved every second of this game, the game was pure joy from beginning to end, I would marry this game if I could, rarely a game satisfies me this much, I know there's going to be some dlc, I hope it's about Zangetsu escaping the demon world or whatever he was sucked in to, but I can't wait for Bloodstained 2 already.

    This.

    Many modern Metroidvania miss this aspect and focus on faux or shoe-horned difficulty or a rouge map mechanic for some reason.
