Boy I hope the DLC comes along sometime soon so these threads don't have to end.

This is Buer. He has fifty legions of demons under his command and teaches natural and moral philosophy, logic, and the virtues of all herbs and plants. He also heals all infirmities and gives good familiars. Say something nice to him.

>>470019581Shanoa is flat! Flat like her back!
>>470020129Honestly Oracle Blade is better for fighting alot of bosses, it can even bypass Millionaires Banes blocks, although I assume that'll be patched out eventually. Valar is just good for farming really
>>470021374Which one doesn't exist in Japan?
>>470021569They call salisbury steaks hamburger steaks and actual hamburger steaks they call something else.

>spend hours grinding and farming to put the regen shard up to level 9 so it's always on.>still just 1 hp every 5 secondswelp.
>>470022349need to rank it up babe
>>470022349I feel like this is an issue in the game. Like, why the fuck would I grind in the late game when I've just got like 1 or 2 bosses to go and 1 or 2 areas? In Aria you'd get most shit once and bam, it's 100%, no need to get 9 of it, then upgrade it 8 times and having to grind for items to upgrade the soul.
>>470022349ranking it up is easy fren. Plus its only good for farming. If you want big boy healing that has an affect in the """harder""" boss fights then you will want drain at max grade and rank.
>>470015887These threads are such a piece of heaven on this shithole of a board, how is this possible? How can they be a sanctuary here of all places
>>470022627You only need rank in this game
>>470022779You wanna see some big witch tiddies and play videogames?

>>470022513>>470022627>>470022757how do i increase the rank? i've improved the shard up to level 9 - is the rank separate from that?
>>470022779Fans of a very particular kind of game were waiting for said game. Said game was exactly what it said it was. The fans are still fans. Fans discusses the game here.
>>470023191You need to improve shards with Johannes
>>470022627the r9/g9 thing is so unnecessary. At the moment mirrriam can easily acquire power well beyond the bosses in the game. Reminder that Dullaheads/welcome/trueArrow is a build acquirable before the second boss.
>english bloodlessJP superior
>>470018916>BRE up!>WST up!>HIP up!>THG up!
>>470023191Rank is the upgrade. Grade is the amount. You have it at rank 9. You want to improve the grade.
>>470023505Very cute and wholesome! Sexy too.
>>470023708You mean backwards
>>470023708is that still done via johannes?
>>470023191You increase grade by obtaining more copies of the shard. In the case of regen, you gotta craft em.You increase rank by improving the shard with JohannesGrade improves numbers, rank improves ability. At rank 9 regardless of grade yellow shards start counting as white shards
>>470023969Only by Johannes
>>470023112But anon there giants da buers!
>>470024013>You increase grade by obtaining more copies of the shardgotcha, thanks.
>>470023505Is that Lindsay?
>>470018419why does she sound like a todler in japanese?
>>470023505You don't know how much I want a photo mode where you can dress up Miriam and have her do cute sexy poses.Miriam card for KK/HS/CM3D2 preset when

>check game mods>is just nude packs and prtrait change imagesnot a single fix, just porn, did this game not sell?
>>470024998Modding takes time. We do have a Samus and Harley Quinn mod atm. I think someone said they are working on a Shanoa replacer.
>>470024998What needs to be fixed?
>>470024737>sword that yells at the top of its lungs>book that chills and lets you read it while you're sitting down>da buer aka the most mechanically useful familiar>based silver knight swooping in to parry oncoming bullshit>army of medusa heads letting you turn the table on IGA's bullshit after decades of suffering
>>470024998>implying portrait change images aren't fixes
>>470024998Fix for what?
>>470025318I don't recall anyone mentioning doing a mod for her yet. It would majorly piss off the Bloodstained Discord though since some users there hate her.
>>470025179>Harley modNow this I have to see.
>>470025654>girl from Momodora dings the save bell and wakes everyone up
>>470026360It's not the official Discord but the one I joined they hate pretty much all the lewd shit that spawned from Bloodstained. Couldn't stand to be there anymore.
>>470025992It's just one autist that tries to pretend he doesn't like porn.
>>470026530People can make as much lewd stuff as they want, but shilling some literal who's porn game by piggybacking on the barely-similar Bloodstained is just asinine viral marketing.
>>470026823Isn't it a free h-game though? Nothing to really shill. Plus I only see Westerners doing that shit.
>>470026823But its free how is that shilling?
>>470026823>>470027049Somebody fill me in on what y'all are talking about
>>470017861How does he clip though the train doors?
>>470023969RANK is done by johannes. GRADE is the amount of times you have farmed that shard. up to 9. Open up the game and read the tutorial shit.
>>470027193Aradia is from an H-game that has some similarities to Bloodstained. That's all. Some anon married the two practically and here we are.
>>470024013Do you get the full benefit of a rank 9 shard once it's white or just the base benefit? Like the Optimizer gives weapon speed as its base, but increased ranks give weapon damage too. Do you need to equip the optimizer to get the weapon damage or is that part passive as well as the weapon speed?
Shoes with fist techniques in the sequel?
>>470027579Full benefit, plus double if you equip the same shard to go with it.
>>470027193Some shitty h game char being shilled by some autistic /u/ nigger with no life
>>470027814>free h game>shilling
>>470027686where is this from?is it official?
>>470027686Third playable character is Chun Lee confirmed.
>>470027814Oh, well that's boring
>>470027865Its still shilling faggot.
>>470027872It's a very unofficial SFV mod. Don't think it's even even released yet.
>>470027686Why do people say her outfit is overdesigned? I think people just dislike the colorful shard stuff, personally.
>>470027872It's Street Fighter V, they modelswapped her with Karin.
>>470028351People saying that usually also whine about her tits. If she was flat and it was the same outfit nobody would whine.
>>470028795I really doubt people on /v/ have a problem with her jugs, anon.
>>470028860Not talking about /v/.
>>470028351Even ignoring the shards, her color palette is more dense than most characters.
>>470029037But I was, dummy. All the criticism from her outfit Ive seen has been on /v/.
>>470024737>Chewbacca bookIt's made of wrinkly flesh. Have you never seen evil dead?
So is this just Castlevania with anime waifus
Is the drain shard bugged? Its not giving me any HP when I hit or kill an enemy.
>>470030141So you mean like OoE/PoR? Yeah kinda
>>470030087You are right. But it looks a lot like Chewbacca though. It really does.
Any more bloodstained themed images similar like this but for other things?
>>470030274>>470030296Good enough, you have me convinced
>>470030352I don't have many.
>>470028351Its a problem with most jap shit characters have too much going on with their outfits and the like.
>>470030965Gremory is so fucked with the whole gang assembled.
>>470020345Why is it locked in the second to last dungeon? Miriam walks so slowly, I spent 80% of the game dive kicking and sliding to get around quicker.
>>470031452Because then people would turbo through the game making a 15 hour game a 4 hour game.
>>470031452That's how it's always been since Aria of Sorrow. You don't get the speed-up shard until near the end, and usually you don't even get to keep it into New Game+ (but you do in Bloodstained).
>>470031452The spear and greatsword techniques are pretty good for fast movement up until that point.
I'm a bit troubled there, I got every shard from ennemy that drops shard but I'm only 96%my guess is that some bosses drop a shard only in hard but I thought I could ask here first
>>470032217Did you craft all the available shards? Did you get all the 8bit shards including the boss?
>>470032217Did you craft the craft-able shards with Johannes?
>>470032297oh yea I forgot about the craftable shardsI did get the 8bit shards tho
>>470032297>>470032406I forgot to say thanks, I completely forgot about craftable shards
So when do we get the next DLC?
>>470032816Eventually. After Switch
>>470032816The 15th, if not sooner (hopefully)
>>470032441>I forgot about the craftable shards
>>470033169I'm talking about the IGA DLC for consoles, by the way. Past that, no idea.
>>470015887WHATS WRONG WITH YOU LEEEEEEGS
>>470033353Just simplified to avoid working on feetso feetfags like you can fuck off
>katanas have a bunch of nifty moves>other weapon types only have one or two
>>470022349number of shards + rank of shardc'mon dude don't be a dumbass
>>470033104Can you fucking believe Ayami Kojima is self-taught? Good lord, she is the greatest living artist. Not anywhere near enough fame.
So are katanas shit or something? Their special moves eat way too much mana and other weapon types are better mechanically.
>>470033281IGA DLC just went live for Switch, surprisingly.
>>470034648As in now? Damn. And I had just gotten into bed to call it for the day. But I guess I could mess around for an hour or so in bed before falling asleep. >turn game off>the update hitsTypical.
>>470034345Katana are OPJinrai alone make you fucking invincible.
>>470033787>still can't draw women
>>470034842It's not the update, mind you.Just a the boss/weapon/shard.>>470034345Not at all, late game I was almost exclusively using the plot sword because it could do like 5 techniques without mastering them and just shat out damage.
>>470034982Do you suppose that's why they didn't ask her to come back for OoE?Because the artist they did get was fucking excellent.
>>470035048They're shooting for the first Switch update to be out next week on the 15th.
>>470035048>It's not the update, mind you.>Just a the boss/weapon/shard.Yeah, but it's still additional content.
>>470035150IGA once said her artwork takes much time to be done and since it's all handcrafted and stuff I think he's right. They just decided for a new artist for a new take after generic animu style was panned but didn't want to go back full gothic artsy.
>>470033497and they are all crap except the one that does the screen wide slash, so who gives a shit.
Where can I find garlic?
>>470034982>>470036087She absolute cute in her style
>>470035785That makes a lot of sense, she seems like a perfectionist.
>>470036087>exactly the same except for the eyes
"I'm interested in this"
>>470034982>forgetting that there's a dead waifu inside the family whip
>>470036727>exactly the same as maria but her jawbone melted

>>470037054Yes. Most can't play it though because of 505 being fucking retards. I opted for a steam key luckily.
>>470037054Seems like it if nip twitter is any indication.

>no one ever talks about the train musicIt's kino and you know ithttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZW5otpMblY
>>470039187>black, blue, gold, and a bit of whiteYou left out her two-toned grey and hazel hair, her green earrings, her pearl tiara that doesn't match a grey anywhere else on her design, the white on her boot cuffs that's a separate shade of white from her dress, etc.And this is before counting that her tattoos have two entirely separate shades of blue, one of which is cyan, purple, pink, and red.And this is all BEFORE her shading hues.
What's your favorite version of Silent Howling/Gremory battle theme?>Curse of the Moon: https://youtu.be/HtlRQd_lmD8>8bit: https://youtu.be/fO8RRcE_WBY>Gremory/ OD :https://youtu.be/5J38Vh7l4cQ I hated how the song comes out in Gremory's "second phase" and you're done with her before the song reaches its climax, at least OD lasted longer
>>470023112>giant lilisI... I didn't consider this possibility.
>>470040489I fought against Gremory solely using the Zangetsuto and with no shards or even kicks or anything. Because I autistically figured it was how you were meant to beat her properly. Made the fight both more difficult and made it last way longer.
>>470039187>>470040245For reference, while being very generous AND not counting shading from light sources, she has about this many colors on her at any given time. When I say generous, I mean things like not counting the two separate shades of grey used in her underwear. The only real contention I'd give is that MAYBE the skin and the boot hem are the same in this picture, but the final design changed and made her skin more pink, so as of release they are separate colors again.
>>470015887>tfw get to zangetsu 2 on NM NG run>tfw keep getting gotI guess I should just sudoku.
>>470040245>her tattoosYou mean her crystals, faggot. Also, post a more vivid description; yours got me hard and I'd like to finish it off.
>>470042123She does actually have tattoos. Johannes put them on her.

>>470033701>>470033520PoR was mentioned.
>>470042808what's happening here
>>470042990Don't worry. Next Smash will have Miriam. My Uncle works for Atari so I know my stuff.
>>470036878The in game model of her was a sin upon humanity
>>470036878>Imagine your soul being stuck in a whip forever while your beloved had children with another woman
>>470020096But how would she sit on her shoulder?
We still need one like this but it's Gremory for Zangetsu vs Miriam. Since she avoids Zangetsu but is fine with fighting Miriam.
>>470044708This one is great.
>>470036878>Whip waifu somehow sounds like a less retarded origin story than Legends' "it turns out great granny belmont and alucard fucked"It's not just me, right?
What Miriam reaction faces we need still?
>>470044828Gremory is too hard for me to draw. Sorry, anon. Otherwise, I would.
>>470044272>That sure was the Lament of Innocence™What did they mean by that?
Anyone wanna point out the missing map for me? at 99%
>>470045041We need a "It was like she was looking at walking garbage"
>>470044928 thank you
>>470015887Yahtzee liked it (much to his frustration, his efforts to shut down Kickstarter are ruined)
>>470017156DO A BARREL ROLL
>>470044272At least she still get whipped by his children for a millenium.
If we get a sequel how's it going to go? Miriam gets a mansion(home base) and has Johannes do Alchemy in the basement with some fields for farming and a mini alchemic circle in the kitchen. She goes to hunt demons all over the world so we get more mythological weapons and bosses. Miriam advances her shardbinder powers and can fuse some shards to create new abilities. The bosses are are a setup for her next adventure in hell's circles
>>470015887Am I the only one with serious issues in the underwater section? I get stuck in attack animations and sometimes I can't do anything att all except move.
>>470045041Is there a shiggy or carl edit yet?
>>470045935>Miriam advances her shardbinderWell Johannes said he can undo it or something right? So it probably won't be her again. Maybe we'll get Zangetsu this time.
>>470045935Sequel will star Anne. Dominique teaching her shards secrets made her a witch too.
>>470045935Only if she drags Alfred and Gebel out of hell to be playable.>>470046097Its an awful bug. Sometimes you have to reset. carry waystones just in case.
>>470022349the "always on" effect is always the rank 1 versionequip it to get the rank 9 effect
>>470046351what part of drag out of hell dont you understand
>>470045435>at 99%Fucking clever.
>>470037927finish the quest from the girl that asks you for equipment, the one thats on the same screen as the farmer behind the house, you bring her back a brigardine and she gives it to you
>>470046132He said Alfred's notes helped teach him how to halt the progression. That doesn't mean Miriam can't mess with the shard she has and learn new stuff.
>>470046097yeah had to suspend my game
>>470046284>need to get healings to turn into regenerates>need to craft the healings first>it's all reliant on RNG loot dropsoh god this is going to take ages.
>>470046679man FUCK Johannes. He's literally the worst character>Accuses Alfred of all this shit and assuming the worst despite knowing him for years>Ends up needing Alfred's shit to get anything done>Is an annoying, repetitive itembot that contributes nothing to the story aside from exposition>is completely emotionless, probably is on the spectrum>wants Miriam but too sperg to make a move>lets her ass get taken by Zangetsu >"oh Alfred was trying to save the world. oops. guess ill do exactly what he was about to do">is within peripheral vision of Zangetsu but doesnt see him even though he wears fucking glassesfuck that retard
>>470046969>wants Miriam but too sperg to make a moveHe already saw her whole naked body and touched all of it. He doesn't need more than that.
>>470046728>>470046209Speaking of which, how do I open chests underwater? I'm guessing I have to wait untill I unlock a shard ability that lets me walk underwater or something because right now I can't do it.
>>470047292you got to kill a boss in a sand area
>>470047292>I'm guessing I have to wait untill I unlock a shard ability that lets me walk underwateryes
>>470046742Alchemic bounty works on crafting shards. Can make it much faster since a max bounty has the potential to make 5 shards at once.
I’m seeing all this art of Bloodless and Dominique with Miriam but Gremory is no where to be seen. She literally tells Miriam to obey if you die to her
I just discovered the secret boss, I know Castlevania alway had jojo references (Zephyr from DoS) but isn't it a bit much?
>Is there a character that could even possibly EVEN TOUCH Madara Uchiha? Let alone defeat him. And I'm not talking about Edo Tensei Uchiha Madara. I'm not talking about Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara either. Hell, I'm not even talking about Juubi Jinchuuriki Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara with the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan and Rinnegan doujutsus (with the rikodou abilities and being capable of both Amateratsu and Tsukuyomi genjutsu), equipped with his Gunbai, a perfect Susano'o, control of the juubi and Gedou Mazou, with Hashirama Senju's DNA implanted in him so he has mokuton kekkei genkai and can perform yin yang release ninjutsu while being an expert in kenjutsu and taijutsu.Someone write this but for Miriam
>>470047401oh god now i need to grind and farm for alchemic bounties before i can even start grinding and farming for the good stuff.
>>470015887did they patch the switch version yet?
>>470047383>>470047371Ok good thanks, just double checking in case something was fucked.
>>470032217there's a few craftable shards, and there's also repeat shards from a few enemies that still count towards the overall score for some dumb reason.
>>470015887did they patch the switch version yet?I stil need to buy this damn game,but i wont buy some buggy ass switch version
>>470047572>>470047698ITS ON THE 15TH AAAAAAAAAAA

>The Libre Logaeth is an occult text written in Enochian script, or as Johannes describes it, the language of angels. The text could be used to call upon benevolent demons from another plane of existenceSo Johannes is going to summon an Angel OC to be the third playable character? Since we know they are angel themed... inb4 angel Alfred jk its gonna be waifu bait. probably that portrait flower girl
>>470048946>Gebel and Johannes are puppets because theyre useless toys to be played with until they are disposed ofbased Zangetsu putting trash in their place
>>470044989The idea of a pure soul being sacrificed to help defeat a vampire is pretty fitting imo, its just the execution was clunky. I still really liked LoI though, great boss fights.
>>470028351Its a bit of a confusing clusterfuck with the weird one-side scarfs and tattoos on the shoulders..
>>470047562It's only 27 gold nuggets...and then you got two more ranks that require items only found in the final area.
>it's a flying beef won't drop episode
I want a mod that changes the Libre Logaeth to a kindle paperwhite
>>470040489Curse of the Moon hands down, mostly because Gremory is the final boss and thus music feels better paced for that. Silent Howling, while it could be final boss tier, isn't "definitive" enough if it makes sense, a bit too fast paced for it to fulfill the role. I'm happy it has the bit at 1:30, but if I were to compare it then CotM version is your classic while RotN is the power metal.
>>470049705>Most of the recipes in the game were cut off from me because Beast Milk just never fucking dropped.
>finish hard difficulty on newgame+ >unlock nightmare>new game+ is a meme that makes 90% of the game trivial so start a fresh nightmare playthrough on a new file>mfw the first hallwaySo it's going to be like that, huh.
>>470050624She looks lovely in blue
>>470017156This is Dullahammer head.He is a powerful floating head, he and his 4 bros can defend you from any threat before it can even touch you.they are GOODBOIS in every sense of the word.say something nice to them.
>>470051046Stupid medusa fucks
What am I supposed to do next after beating the second Zangetsu battle? My map looks complete though it says I only have 80% completion and fighting Gebel always results in a game over.
>>470050420Dullahan heads trivializes the early parts, just get them to grade 9.
>>470051359Hit the moon when it turns red in Gebel's fight
>>470051359Zangetsu roughly translates to "moon cleaver". There is a moon during Gebel fight. And it turns red at some point.
why is being overpowered in this game so much fun?Usually I'd get bored being able to steamroll everything
>>470051046>kills the tentacles so first boss wipes you with mouthwash
Do you think Mirriam and Jonnas fucked hard and raw after their adventure? Especially in the cargo hold of the ship they came in?So hard and raw that the captain of the ship had to yell out to them to "stop rocking the boat!">>470051359Equip Zangetsu's sword, and fight Gebel, but while fighting Gebel, watch the moon, and when it turns red, smack it. You should be getting Gebel to about 1/3 of his life before it shows up
>>470051549The game really rewards you going "wait, what if I tried this?" There are so many ways to get strong that it feels like a real treat. My one major gripe is that full shortcuts are limited to NG+, what the fuck is the deal with that? I want to have as many sets as possible for elemental and weapon variety.
Man NG+ is boring when you already have everything unlocked, im just going to play NG again
>>470051549I am scared that we get an update that nerfs some of the bullshit in this game like stacking on passive shards. It's so fun being OP like Bunnymorphing with high as fuck INT or doing lethargy at almost everything
>>470051686>Gebel is balanced to be fought 1/4 of the way through the game>fight is actually meant to take place at the 3/4 markBiggest challenge in the fight is not accidentally killing him before the moon changes.
>>470051549Iga games always somehow managed to make the grind and being overpowered feel fine. And let you limit yourself anyway if you want to.
>>470015887Why bother putting weapon techniques in the game if they're total dog shit? I would never waste MP on a tech when it could be used on spells
>>470051549>Get the doppelganger shard and upgrade to max rank>start specing more into great swords for greater coverage>no matter what I swing at I always hit something 2-3 times paired with crits>kill the crap out of every boss with ridiculous damage when I got the final great sword I guess the reason why it's so fun is because you feel like you earned after all the experimenting and grinding.Also on a side note I stuck with caraboose the entire game with how helpful she is in getting secrets, debuffing enemies, and her shoulder siting abilities. Also I love the Easter egg involving her, I just wish the other familiars had similar Easter eggs.
>>470052776SotN had a bunch of special weapon techniques that you had no reason to use or possibly even know about without experimenting. This just keeps it in spirit but upgrades the system so you can use them with any weapon of the same type.
>>470052776>not having Gebel's glassesStuff like rapidfire is absolutely apeshit.
>>470052776Because a number of them are not dogshit at all
>>470053086One of my chief complaints with the game is that it keeps some problems that existed since SotN around and doesn't fix/improve them at all. You'd think after working on so many games of the same style IGA would know how to better balance them.
>>470052776I was only able to beat Zangetsu 2.0 with the critical whip skill since it bypasses his counter while hitting him for max damage for 2-3 times
Where do you get Gebel glasses?
>>470041617If you didn't know/notice, the Zangetsuto will always deal critical damage to Gremory.
>>470053940Get all shards
>>470053940You need to have all the shards to get it.
>>470054048>>470054074Thanks, I'm at 95%
>>470052776If that’s how you look at things, then you’re always wasting MP if you’re not using the best DPS most optimal shard setup possible, which you definitely weren’t.
>>470054456Don’t forget to craft shards.
What’s your favorite thing to prepare for your Miriam, /v/? For me, it’s pizza!
>>470054763Shadow Tracer's upgrades seem to hint at her favorite dishes.
>>470015887That shit has four arms??
>>470054556It's not about being optimal so much as the fact that spells hit harder than weapons, can hit at range, and can have large effect areas.
>guys checkout this build. you can stomp everything>cool, how do I get it>just unlock the final area bro and 100% these itemspost busted builds for early game on new files nightmare, faggots
>>470054639I didn't. The only ones I'm missing are a couple from DoB, the train fucker, an elemental, and the rottweiler
>>470055231Just spam 8-bit fireball.
Does anyone even give a SHIT about Gremory or what her problem is? She's the boss of two games and I learned absolutely nothing about her.
>>470055141Some hit harder than weapons, some don’t, some can hit at range, some can’t some can have large effect areas, some can’t. All also true about techniques. Half the techniques have invincibility frames too, flying kick is straight up completely invulnerable to projectiles.
>>470055808She’ll be back in another game. She just warped away when she died. My real question is why she has a moon theme when her ars goetia entry mentions nothing about the moon
>>470056220its just weird shes being presented as the constant villain but has no clear sense of depth. Dracula at least had a thing going on with his wife or whatever. and Alucard.
What is the Zangetsu way of saying "git gud"?how would he say it?
So, I fought Gebel, and the game not so subtly implied that I fucked up. How do I unfuck my ending?
>>470055969Shards can also get better by collecting duplicates, whereas techniques have no way to advance to my knowledge.
>>470056343she is basically death
>>470057195Keep playing. Surely there are numerous places you haven’t explored yet.
>>470057329so shes a beta?
>>470055231Flame Cannon is actually very strong on first playthrough. It does huge damage very early on, and it's not hard at all to max out.
>>470057280Techniques get better by you getting a stronger weapon.
>>470055231Here's a few spells and weapons that make cakewalk the early parts of the game, ONLY at the entrance>Farm lion swordsman for enhance STR that goes up to +9 and can EASILY be ranked up to rank 3 and beyond with Ectoplasm>Chainsaw sword knights sword drop is absolutely busted in combination with STR enhance shard since it multi-hits>True Arrow annihilates practically anything and is upgraded with basic as fuck materials most of which are found in the first hour of gameplay>Cursed witch lady can be farmed for Curse ring that brings INSANE damage to the early game>The dogs can be farmed for a fairly powerful early-game longswordThe game is breakable if you know your shit and experiment, As its always been with Igavanias
>>470057986In my experience weapons don't keep pace with magic. Around the point I was in the desert is when I noticed that my weapons just weren't cutting it anymore. I didn't swing a weapon at all against Alfred.
>mfw Cursed Orphan starts playing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjLThzBMbds
>>470055808It feels like they blew their load with Gremory in Curse of the Moon. She's clearly Zangestu's boss, with Miriam being a stand in.
>>470053940Its really a pointless item. Rank of Words of Wisdom, craft the Witches Hat, and get the Warlocks necklace from the memorial girl and you'll regen mana faster than 98% of the spells can spend it. All it does is free up slots for Augment INT & for the Beret which gives like, 2 extra INT
>>470057986Thats really cool, what shard makes you run like that
>>470055231Flame Cannon is cheap (18MP) compared to True Arrow (30MP) and is really powerful at close-ranged early on.Dullahammer Head familiar is also pretty powerful at Rank 9 since it can attack 5 times.Those two shards should work on everything until Reflector Boss.You can cheese Twin Dragons during their long flamebreath animation by equipping a boots weapon, jumping on the right-dragon's head and just bounce up and down repeatedly until their flamebreath is over.Once you get Reflector Ray, you can glitch your way to Oriental Sorcery Lab to get 9 Bovine Plumes.Use 8 to upgrade Reflector Ray to Rank 9, then use 1 to get High Jump. (2 for Optimizer too if you want passive early on)With the High Jump ability, you can get the Valkyrie Dress and Aegis Plate early on for some defense.With the upgraded Reflector Ray, you can now beam into the Underwater Waterway to reach Underground Desert, then Inferno Cave by beaming into the ledge.Upon reaching inferno Cave's backdoor, get the Summon Hellhound shard to Grade 9.Upgrade Summon Hellhound to Rank 7 or 9 depending on the materials you have.Congratulations, you can now 1-shot or 2-shot any boss before fighting Bloodless.Eat a lot of shit to upgrade your max MP so you can use it twice.Also, get the Warlock's Necklace accessory that reduces MP cost from Abigail.
>>470062226That's the sword they're using, not a shard.
>>470062309this is the best strat so far. thanks, anoncurious about how to do those skips tho. got clips?
>>470062418oh, I used that flying sword most of the game. I missed some cool shit. Im going to replay actually using weapon techniques.
>>470058823>Farm lion swordsman for enhance STRWrong enemy. You don't get STR until Japan land. Lion guy gives Sword Expertise.
>>470062309>With the upgraded Reflector Ray, you can now beam into the Underwater WaterwayIf you can reach the waterway, why not get the water jet shard and just motorboat around? Reflector underwater doesn't really save much hassle.
>>470062309Thinking of doing some sequence breaking next time I play this, does the story/dialog change at all? Like if you fight Zangetsu in Japanland, then go to the train, what happens?
>>470063052Even if all you do is quarter-circle forward with weapons, you'll see a lot of neat shit.
>>470050231Just get Miriam to milk herself.
>>470063329I wish you could milk Lilis
requesting edit of Miriam holding Zanetsu, Gebel and Alfred (with their subsequent graves behind her)
>>470063291>some swords get elemental projectiles>all the damage is front loaded into the physical hitI don't know why they bothered with this.
>>470062595>>470062309I didn't mention it, but you need to eat food that increases LUCK to make Grade 9-ing shards bearable. Another trick when you are on PC is to suspend your game to save, then backup your save by copying the file somewhere else. This way even if you die, you can just paste the file back in to respawn where you last suspended.>>470063163You need to beam this underwater area to reach the room with the waterjet squids. (pic related)I know that there's some sword technique that allows you to sink underwater, but from my run, I didn't have it available on any of my weapons.Maybe you're supposed to craft a specific 8-bit weapon for it or something.
>>470063950got it. thanks anon. what luck food is easiest to make?
>>470063543The demon bun is too strong. Would get head lopped off/10
>>470063329>>470063543Miriam came over with a boat full of the stuff. Why did you guys never use that?

>>470064880You forgot>you don't get her breast physics>there is no areola-peek
>>470024514I think you mean sounds like my wife
I want to kiss Alfred
>>470044708>Tfw you are the Dracula expat and only show up for 10 minutes and have one of the easiest human sized bossfights in the game
>>470066180>tfw you die in bad ending so miriam does a whole other path to save you only to kill you anyway
>>470066304>Tfw you're not in the next game

>>470048136God Miriam's tits are pretty big, aren't they?
>>470066876Lili is just a head/outfit swap of Miriam, so they're pretty stonking.
>bad ending with gremory taking over miriam's body>no bad ending with dominique sitting on miriam's faceThey leaned into the lewd this time with bunnymophosis. Hopefully next time we get something like a conversation with it.>Johaness, using this shard makes my hips ache.>Well, you know what they say about rabbits.
>>470063543>>470064880Imagine if it were a Familiar shard instead.
at the post-game grind and was wondering what was more efficient for farming items> stacking Augment LCK> stacking Pickpocketboosting luck as much as possible outside of that and have 2x Plunderer Rings, but cant find concrete info on which shard set up is better
What is the best theme in the game and why is it OD's theme?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2uoDB-b0HA
>>470068025More a fan of this myself.>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpzsBtojFR0
>>470055808I don't even understand Gremory being a villain unless they just liked the name.>In demonology, Gremory is a strong Duke of Hell that governs twenty-six legions of demons. Gremory is depicted as appearing in the form of a beautiful woman with the crown of a duchess either on her head or tied around her waist, and riding a camel. She tells all things past, present and future, about hidden treasures, and procures the love of women, young and old, but especially maidens.
>>47006856426th legions of demons. She's 1 of the 26 strong ones summoned.
>>470018685>>470058983I don't get it because I was too old for SpongeBob when it was new, man.
>>470068907>too old for it when it was newEven my dad who was like 50 at the time of episodes coming out watched them on business trips at his hotels. You have no excuse.
>>470068742>tells you the future>finds you treasure>gets you laidHow is any of that bad?
>>470069460Gebel already has Miriam. A temptress demon giving him more woman is bad
>>470043136Miriam might have better odds with an indie Smash. Then again there's quite a few of those now.
>>470067159>Miriam flexing on the virgin Johannes with her demon bitches.
>>470069993I don't think Dominique has anything to worry about, though. It's not like she follows God anymore.>Dom takes over Hell and gives herself a harem of Lilis and adds Bloodless simply because she can.
>>470069993>already has MiriamMiriam spent a decade in a coma, Gremory was finding him treasure and getting him laid the whole time.
Why does everyone say the Switch version is bad? It looks fine to me.
>>470071032>It looks fine to me. Because you're a brainlet anon.
What are we transmuting this time?
KILL THOSE MURDERERS DEAD
Did you bring it?
>>470071256I'll go with this!
O.D version when?
>>470071873>those four fucking granny heads in the bottom leftit's the little details
>>470072062Never because Alucard has enough dignity to pull that off but O.D. is a robbed cuck.
>>470040489CotM version is more befitting a final boss, the RotN one would be better on longer fights or a boss rush kind of deal.
Third playable character will be Revenant
>>470040489Ritual version. The Curse version sounds more like something that plays in cutscenes when she's around than a boss theme.
The thing I love most about Miriam is her cock
>>470073091Is Zero Punctuation still a thing, or did this get made back in fucking 2015 when the kickstarter was going?
>>470030259You need to make them bleed first. It absorbs spilled blood.
>>470044828>>470045207If you don't at least try, you can never be sure. Even the attempt is worth it in the long run.
>>470073380It's in his bloodstain review from a few days ago
>>470073668wow. really nice hands, anon. I can't draw hands. keep it up. I want to see it colored :)
>>470030141No, castlevania was good
>>470030394Oh baby, you are going to be super fucking disappointed. Guys at work all picked up the game due to PoR nostalgia, everybody dropped it alreadyBuy it, you’ll see what I mean
>>470068564Technically Demons are like the Djinns/Genies trapped on vessels from Muslim myths. So they're obliged to be loyal and to carry out the orders of their summoner, much to their displeasure.
>>470030141There been waifus in Castlevania since Castlevania 3 on NES.
>>470074734That's not what "waifu" means you glue huffing mongoloid
>>470074361Castlevania has been anime trash since Rondo of Blood. Bloodstained is just the same thing with a different name.
>>470074927It does with the right attitude :)
>>470075147She's a MAN, baby!At least, that's what you're supposed to think Sypha is until the ending.
>>470075032It's a ''shame'' people only gave a shit about Castlevania when it turno into ''trash''
>>470044531Miriam sits on hers, obviously.
>>470075306Like the Metroid dude!
>>470075763>WarakiyaGool ol' late 80s translations.
my backer copy finally arrived on monday and it's fucking damaged, and fangamer won't answer my emails. I see everyone having fun with the game and I can't even play it, feels batman
>>470076194Oh what a shame man, one of the best Igavnias and absolutely game of the year, you are missing out on SO much It's a shame that all the games discussion here will be over by the time you even initially boot it up, oh man how terrible
>>470073380>Is Zero Punctuation still a thing, or did this get made back in fucking 2015 when the kickstarter was going? Yeah it's still a thing, he actually liked it.
Vepar is a male BTW. Yes he has tits and looks like a mermaid, but he's a dude.
>>470076474>look at this blue shard, Johannes>we should get to work on upgrading it>it should get better with repeated usage like techniques do
>>470077153so he's wearing a naked seaweed lady as a hat?
Was this game intended to be beat with the good ending in under 24 hours? I just tanked every boss in the game with welcome company spam and high defense.
>>470078048You say that like 24 hours is a short amount of time for a game like this
>>470020096I finally get this image.Ha!
>>470078048The game gives you medals when you beat a boss without taking any damage.That's how it is intended to be played.
>>470078048Metroidvanias are generally pretty short, dude. 24 hours is fucking massive for the genre.
Hard and nightmare are like some form of torture. What difficulty are you guys on? I'm thinking of starting a new file on nightmare and just try to break the game from the start so I don't have to get annihilated by Zangetsu 200 times and still say I beat the game on nightmare. How hard would that be to achieve? Just farm shards like a madman?
>>470078475Depends if you plan to get boss Medals on NG or NG+.
>>470078697Well medals have no use, right? So I don't really care about those.
>>470072467I don't understand the glasses and nose.
>>470017156funny, in game all he does is suck balls and cocks
>>470051046Thanks for making every fight past the first one a fucking joke.
>>470027256im guessing he's using valkyrie's sword teleporting skill
>>470077589>so he's wearing a naked seaweed lady as a hat?That could be Iga's interpretation but:https://www.deliriumsrealm.com/vepar/ Vepar is referred to as male, but said to take a female form. But then he's a demon so he can probably look like whatever he wants.
>>470079053He's too ashamed to show his face post-loss.
>>470078453That reminds me that I never did a <15% run on ZM.
>>470080405But that mask is even more undignified. What about one of those theater masks that cover all the face?
>>470080535>15% Hard Mother Brain
The gun that shoots homing bullets when combined with diamond bullets and the recycle hat completely breaks the game.
>>470080875How are guns overall?I don't think I used one outside of the ship the whole game
>>470080968they're fine if you're okay with the fact that there's only a single weapon technique for it and Miriam screeches autistically after firing each shot.
>>470080968>How are guns overall? Broken as fuck once you get access to diamond bullets and the hat that makes you not use up your ammo. Just craft a stack of diamond bullets and wear the hat and they never get used up.
>>470081095It also takes forever to build speed. In any practical situation you can shoot faster using dash cancels without wasting MP.
>>470080843Yeah I imagine that would be fucking rough, also Mecha Ridley does what, 200 energy in a single swipe on Hard where E-Tanks are 50 units each? What do the remaining 6 of 15 items go towards once you get the nine essentials?
>>470080968>How are guns overall? Rene's Requium with diamond bullets does 500+ damage per shot to bosses, the other gun that shoots homing rounds does slightly less but will hit bosses like Overlord that a normal gun will miss due to the hitbox being too high and put of line with the firing line. the main deal with guns if you stay way back and play keep away with them father then getting in close. Especially with the homing gun (can never remember the name of if) if you don't have some distance the bullets tend to go wide and miss.
>>470081095>they're fine if you're okay with the fact that there's only a single weapon technique for it>techniqueshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7YyBtMxZgQs
>>470079053he went from Warudo to Waluigi, its a japanese play of words
>>470080968broken but not as much as valkyrie sword and the katana skills
>>470081237Most people seem to recommend just stocking up on Super Missiles and Energy tanks, but I grabbed the Screw Attack and High Jump to play it safe at certain points.
>>470082141I can see why. Also isn't the EU version of the game technically able to do a 9% hard run?
I'm at the final boss, no damage on hard and I need to know, does damage before the initial rotation stops even matter? I'm not sure if a phase change can even happen before that, so I'm not sure if I'm wasting MP dpsing all heads at once. Also how much health does he have on hard?
merchantly reminder to buy skyrim for switch after playing bloodstained for switch

What if someone created sprite replacements for all of the monster, NPC and player models in the game kind of like how the 8-bit summons work? Basically replace the model with a billbord that displays the sprite?
>>470078048>24 hoursWow you really speedran this game. The only time i ever went close to that speed was when it took me two hours to make this post.
>>470079420>The mechanically most useful familiar. >badThere is only one bad familiar.
>>470085401You can get them by having all the shards collected
>>470087461What's even the point at that juncture?Everything worth killing is dead
>>470016238When you make it.
>>470087979Miriam at max strength is FAR beyond any of the bosses. We are talking about oneshotting the end bosses here. The fact that early stomp builds can last until the end game is insane. By the time you beat OD you are nowhere near maxed out on passive shards or equipped with the best damage dealing shards (although you will have the strongest weapons).
>>470089078its the same case with all Igavania protagonists at level 30 you defeat everything in a few hits, evne bosses
Bloodstained needs a better villain for it's sequel. Some kind of Drac equivalent. Get Nobunaga or something. He has a castle, right?
>>470020096I was so disappointed.
>No Lilli R34
>>470090742Bloodstained 2 will feature an oddly familiar giant Mayan T-Rex.
>>470090868isnt that just miriam in bunnysuit r34?
>>470090742We already have Dominique
I've posted through the game the times now. English Miriam is better than Japanese.
>>470091186>English Miriam is better than Japanese.But you're wrong.
>>470091186Sorry, I'm to drunk too post responsibly. Japanese Miriam is just not as good and English Miriam.
>>470091319I don't think Japanese Miriam is bad, just kinda flat and boring like English Zelda
English Miriam is ok, but she still can't compare with Japanese Miriam. The Japanese voice work also doesn't scream as much right at you when you do most of the normal mundane moves like regular attacks etc the same way the English voice lines do. Which is a plus.
>>470091186>>470091475>missing out on her cute loliesque "oishii~~" every time you eat foodpleb
>>470091610Will maybe this is it, I don't want her to be "cute." I want her to be a badass. Maybe this is because I'm gay and have no sexual attraction to her whatsoever.
>>470091791Women can't be badass.
>>470091862You might not be able to see them that way, but I can.
>Losing the characters entire personality so you can hear generic "cute" Japanese phrases for the 5 billionth timeGo watch anime or something, Christ, even I'm not that big of a weeb
>>470091791Male or female, characters are best when they're a mix of cool and cute. OD wouldn't be anywhere near as endearing without the aftermath of his boss fight, Zangetsu bruteforcing his way through the castle despite being totally ill-equipped and being more of an awkward autist than stoic badass, etc.
>>470023505YESSSSSSSSSSVEPAR BOOBS ANON IS PLEASED
>>470092326I am all about man ass and I'm an embarrassing faggot about it all the time
>>470092284I don't disagree with anything you're saying. I guess I just don't get much charm from Japanese Miriam for whatever reason.
