Not unless he makes another game before he dies
Sequel when? I hope the DLC doesn't take too much time.
Game still looks like shit.
>>470020706also your face
Not only did I have faith in the game all along, I also considered Curse of the Moon my GOTY last year.YOU should apologize to ME fucker.
>>470019947Switch version fixed yet? If not I ain't apologizing for shit.
>>470019947No because I never doubted even though "the game looks bad" (which is a fucking lie) I am still enjoying it, fuck the knowitalls journo balls licking assholes :)
it was ok
>>470019947I always had faith.
>>470021243Some parts of the game look good and then there some room that are totally drab. It's just inconsistent.
>>470021636I didn't noticed maybe is the level of hype I had, still it's not DS2 bad tier
>>470019947Let people like the Tortanic and HK fags stew in anger. No reason to stoop to their level and acknowledge them when we've been having constant fun Bloodstained threads full of people who love the game.
>>470019947For what? Bloodstained is still bad, it's just not mighty no 9 badJust go play SOTN instead of making excuses about bloodstained being good
>>470019947Sorry i doubted you Iga
>>470021818SOTN has been obsolete for years. It had nice sprite work and music, but the design of the game shits the bed hard.
>>470021816based and tittypilled
>>470022241cringe and awfulmemed
>>470022001What obsoleted it, then? The later Igavanias? Hollow Knight?
Keiji Inafune btfo
>>470023032>The later Igavanias? Yes>Hollow Knight?No
So what made him stand out among the jap conmen?
>>470019947Feels good to be in the not balding club with Iga.

This song is still stuck in my head.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vg8damWdjR0&list=PLTSIqhWP1gKXEPAOxob2fx1k91LHiiwMc&index=8
It's been almost a month and my copy still hasn't arrived. Should I be concerned? t. backer
>>470025342I got my copy late, but it was because it got stuck at my local post office for ages because apparently my local post office is ass. Didn't really have anything to do with the kickstarter or fangamer. Have you checked your post office? It might be stuck somewhere.
Wait why is Hollow Knight being brought up.I genuinely think it's the better more cohesive game but I still really liked Bloodstained and got a plat in it. Why can't people like both?
wait what someone made a Street Fighter Miriam modhttps://www.deviantart.com/tiggiewhite/art/SFV-MOD-Preview-Karin-as-Miriam-Bloodstained-797105866
>>470024557You couldn't make it more obvious that you're upset about not backing the game yourself so you could have your own awesome portrait in the game.
>>470025841It's the new meme
>>470019947its way better than I expected.Then again, I expected shit. It'll be a while before I come to a real consensus on it.But I think its one of the better Igavanias. Not Aria or SotN level though
>>470024557just replace them with kramer
>>470025841Falseflagging shitposters. It's sad but there has been tons of shitposting.
>>470025960That's amazing. I'll unironically use this.
>>470026019Nigga I don't want a single realistic-looking portrait in the game, it clashes with the aesthetic. They should've stylized the backers to be more anime to match at the bare minimum.
>>470025841>Why can't people like both?You're not allowed to. You have to like one or the other. If you like one, then you absolutely despise the other. There is no middle ground.The majority of /v/ actually legitimately unironically believe this with all their heart of hearts.
>>470026254Not him but I don't think anime portraits would have been in better taste.
>>470024994>manages to produce the first good inti creates game since X2
>>470019947Not until the switch version gets fixed.Really hope WayForward pulls it off.
>>470028717I have my doubts that the Switch's severely inadequate port is Iga's fault but fair enough.
>>470019947He should fucking apologize to me for that God awful Switch port. I fucking backed that for $60 for fuck sake.

>>470033506welcome to kickstarter anon
>>470033506It is and they're not even the worst ones.Yet one of the many reasons to get it on PC so you can patch them out with >>470029541The onion bois are one of my only complaints of an otherwise very solid game.Also since it's UE4 for the engine, its super easy to mod, the mod for this dosn't even overwrite any files, just drop in in the "~mods" folder and go.
I never doubted the big guy
>>470029889>Best art designOrder of Ecclesia > Symphony of the Night >>> rest>Best map designBloodstained > Aria of Sorrow > rest >>>>> OoE>Best musicSymphony of the Night > Dawn of Sorrow > rest >>>>> HoD>Best overallAria of Sorrow > Bloodstained > rest
>>470034717I will never understand why people love Aria of Sorrow so much. To me, Dawn of Sorrow is a direct upgrade in every way except portrait art.
>>470035043Dawn is a downgrade in most areas. Just nicer graphics.
>>470024557It's not a big deal to me, but you general do not smile for a painted face portrait, just saying it might take some people out of the immersion even more.
>>470035043Dawn is just Aria with more grinding and less incentive to explore since you won't find any good weapons in the castle. Bloodstained is what happens when you take Dawn and fix both of those issues. There's no reason to play Dawn anymore.
>>470019947Never doubted him.
The real thing that sets Bloodstained and SotN apart from the others is the vast amounts of notable weapons that can be found. Not because the weapons are necessarily powerful, but because they are unique or noteworthy.
>>470035808One thing about the handhelds is that they always felt a bit smaller. Fewer weapons, less moves, etc. The maps might be huge, but scale still felt smaller.
>>470036132They had less dev time so that makes sense
Bloodstained was good and all, but now he needs to make an spiritual successor for another game he worked on.
>>470037414Tokimeki Memorial is so good.
>>470029541Is there a mod that uses classical art? Plenty of them around.
>>470019947>inafune proved hinself proved to be a fraud>kojima proved hinself to be a fraud and a hack>suzuki proved hinself to be a fraud>mikami proved a fraudMan how did igarashi managed to do it?
>>470037414Iga implies his wife co-wrote that, and that's why it's so good. He straight up says he doesn't know much about relationships, and that game was all he could ever do about it. So that's why he had his boss give him a list of potential games, and he chose the next Castlevania game.
>>470024557Is there a mod that replaces the portraits with porn of Miriam and Dominique?
>>470037414Schlocky 90s anime shit can piss off. No thanks....well, unless there's a good action game attached to it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2x_I0_Og_iMthis is very silly
>>470037830It always puzzles me how certain directors get away with making masterpieces and then go on to make literal garbage for the rest of their career. It's like nigga how the fuck did you even make these good games in the first place.
>>470021067Your parents should apologized for your existence for being a nintenbabby
>>470038459Igarashi was in charge of programing and writing the story, though like >>470037872 says, it's known that her wife helped him on that.
>>470021067>>470038286>buying the switch version
>>470025841Literally because HK is the most popular metroidvania game of the moment.
>>470038286>>470021067Why do you play multiplats on Switch? Are you retarded?
>>470038586The honest reason is probably that in reality games aren't one man jobs and if a team doesn't click or doesn't do their job well it won't work very smoothly and can be hard to recover. There's also things like budget and manager meddling to consider as well. I think it is quite harsh to put it all on a director, but that goes for praise as well.
>>470038765>MetroidvaniaHere it is. Here's that word again.
The man has made video games for decades. Not just as a producer but as a programmer.I never doubted him.
>>470024557Why is it that everytime shit like this is put in these "people" are the ugliest pricks imaginable?
>>470019947Iga spelled backwards is a SMT spell.
>>470039157HERE IT IS THAT WORD AGAIN
>>470039157some faggot vidya bloggers complained about it so it became a cool source of bait to agree with then
>>470038726I travel for work and am never home for long, and my laptop is for work and I’m not bringing a second big heavy shitty gaming laptop that has shit battery life and is loud as fuck with me, gaming laptops are autistic as fuck and make you look special needs. And bringing a PS4 through baggage check makes you look like a sperg and also won’t fit in my bag with my other stuff. Switch is literally the only reasonable option for my needs.
>>470038286>input latency in the switch versionI still have no idea what you're talking about. I've done side by side comparisons to the Steam demo, and it has got to be an extremely negligent difference or it's restricted to just some areas or situations or whatever. The Switch suffers from a ton of other stuff. But not this.
Bloodstained was going very badly, so Iga fired the team and hired new ones. Even then development was a mess. Basically Iga looks like he was paying attention and tried to make the best of a bad situation. Inafune was working on like 9 games, and just outsourced MN9 to Inti-Creates and let them do whatever. He just assumed it would be a big hit and set up all these spin offs and merchandise. Inti seems to have no idea how to use Unreal Engine, which is a big reson why MN9 and BS were so bad for them.
>>470026703Yeah, Tekken 7 would've been a better pick. That way, you could make every female into Miriam! And have every male be Pepsiman!
>>470039259Only childless, unmarried soi guzzlers have the spare cash to invest in a video game like this. The one time they do anything useful for society.
>>470038703Kojima and Iga made a love romance game together? I find that amusing.
>>470039429nobody knows how to use unreal, thats why all unreal games run like fucking shit
>>470039394I have both the PS4 & Switch versions, switch is noticeably worse in control.
>>470039512Nice story anon.
>>470026254they were modded out day 1 on nexus
How can she be a good villain when she doesn't even have as much as a fraction of Draculas charisma and ham?
>Press and hold up
>>470039851She already has two big charismatic hams, anon.
>>470033738If you love it so much, there surely must be a tag on e-hentai. Please, share us the magic of doujinshi and rule34 sites. I know one that ends with a puny lvl14 demon stealing 50 levels from the hero with a titfuck, making her lvl63
>>470039851she has a nice pair of plot and backstory
Does that gear at the bottom of Twin Dragon Tower that you can move do anything?
>>470021067>expecting multiplat be good on switch
>>470039715a neet like you obviously wouldn’t understand, get a job loser, leave your grandmas basement
I love the game but it bugs the hell out of me that CotM isn't canon anymore.
>>470040116this game is PS2 tier, games way better looking run just fine on switch, iga and his team rushed this shit
>>470040116And not surprisingly that version sold the best on consoles. Man Switch faggots are truly cucks.
>>470037414Only if it has a yandere like Miyako.
>>470021067Imagine playing a 3rd party title on a Nintendo platform in 2019. Bing bing machines are only good for bing bing games you dumb wahoo.

But RotN has to come in 3rd, then Aria.Best overall>Aria of Sorrow > Bloodstained > restYes, obviously Castlevania Judgment on the Wii is as good as SotN...Why even bother with rating these things like this?
>all these salty SnoyfagsIs it really this easy to collect (you)s?
Enemy design is honestly a bit uninspired, and really just feel like knock offs of classic CV enemies. But level design and gameplay are both top tier, if a bit unbalanced (True Arrow will carry you through the entire game, and I'm playing in Hard)Its nice they didn't make it babby tier in exploration. Ive gotten stuck several times now, I'm currenly trying to figure out what to do to get past Gebel without a bad ending
>>470040651Nigga are you actually defending the switch version?
>>470040685dont fight gebel until youve gotten the zanghetsu (sp?) sword
>>470038801He plays on switch... the question was already answered.
>>470039960Her thighs or tits.
>>470019947>doubting the genius mind behind SotN and Aria Ya'll a bunch of retards, anyone with any brains knew full damn well it would be good.
>>470040854No, but every reply so far has just been>lmao SwitchYou faggots couldn't be more tsuntsun if you tried.
>>470040861Dang, and where do I get that? I feel like I've gone everywhere possible at this point with Double Jump and reflector ray
>>470019947I never doubted him. Bloodstained was exactly what I expected, and wanted, it to be.
>>470038586It's a team project, someone under them saved the day and were the true lead, but the fraud leader gets all the credit.
>>470041068go get the invert ability, from google
>>470040551>not like a buttplug
>>470041068Fight the boss in the Cathedral and then think about where you can use the shard you get
>>470021067The patch coming on the 15th is supposed to fix a lot of issues with the Switch version. UE4 Switch ports are generally a shitshow though, so don't expect too much.
>>470019947For what? I backed Bloodstained when it was announced. I got a 10/10 platformer, finished it 4 times already, loved it. Oh, and I also got a 7/10 Metroidvania a year later, it was good.
Voyage of Promise feels so much like a track from Lament of Innocence and the Sorrow games. It works perfectly as Miriams theme in that regard.
>>470019947Patch your game faggot!
>>470032194Internal view is planned.Very good.
>>470040017>I know one that ends with a puny lvl14 demon stealing 50 levels from the hero with a titfuck, making her lvl63Sauce, my good man, SAUCE!
>>470041931>Its been 3 years since I requested this imageI requested a good amount of Miriam stuff in the drawthreads now that I think about it.
Weren't we getting custom outfits? How do we wear those? Are they just shard transformations?
>>470042518Aside from what is already in the game, we're meant to get the rest in updates.
>the nun outfit was the least voted for costume
>>470040392It has Yuina, a mad scientist. At the end of her route, he decides to kill off MC because love is in the way of her plans for world domination. Failing to defeat her means you won't get her happy ending.
Bloodstained sucks I only bought it for a blowjob from Miriam.
>>470041931Fuck man, I only know by memory what it looked like, but I can't seem to find it by name. E-hentai doesn't allow me to search by tag or I'm just retarded.
>Dude I put MYSELF in the game instead of improving the graphics lmao
>>470041931Why would a low level demon have an ability that is only available to high level undead and outsiders?
>>470040567The fuck's your problem? I just put "rest" to get to cut things short you autist. FYI normal people generally don't like producing and indulging in fucktons of tedious, near-worthless bullshit.>So, you're saying RotN and HoD had equally good art design?Well I wasn't, but that's exactly right. Both are complete fucking garbage.
>>470019947I always believed in you Castlevania man, you told me if I gave you my money you'd make a good game again so I gave you my money and you made a good game again.
>>470020036Initially the plan was to release it 100% so it shouldn't take too long. Assets for playable Zangetsu and Dominique are already in too. Looks like they both have this bar thingy that works like Mana but not Mana.
>>470041931>>470043947https://e-hentai.org/g/1412194/10f75cb0c0/I found it.
>>470039851bro did you see Dracula's backstory?>Muh wife dead>Fuck you I'm Vampire>fuck you for being mad at me for getting your wife killed>ByeThis is pretty much Lament of Innocence had it been the first Caslevania
>>470044559Of course I do.
I want the next game to have a tonfa weapon.
>>470047659I would bet that at least 75% of /v/ don't know about peterchimaera. I'd also bet that the person who drew that comic also doesn't know him.

>DICKS FOR ZION
>>470048970How I wish this was better drawn.
>>470021067Buy the inferior hardware, get the inferior experience.I can understand you boycotting Sony, but this game is also on PC and Xbox.
>>470040110No, just to show you that you can use her hands to manipulate glowing stage elements.Which you'll only use a few times more in the library as the game forgets about it and gives you teleport abilities shortly afterward
I wanted to buy this game for the Switch, but seeing that it runs like total shit on the console, I don't think I have a plan to buy this game anymore.
>>470020706Nothing a few shaders can’t fix. The game is pretty fun either way.
>>470052310I mean, the game already showed you you could do that in the first level so I thought there might be a point to it
>>470042798no maid either. Fuckers have 0 taste.
>>470039851She's okay for what she is, a twist on the shopkeeper NPC. Beyond that she doesn't really need to return or anything, her role is done.
>>470025960I’d rather have someone mod stuff into The Sims 4 so I can whore out a Miriam sim and make her diddle young sims
>>470052578A rotten bunch, those bastards.
>>470025960I'm surprised they didn't use Menat instead. They even share the same english VA.

>>470056789>pretty AND talented artist
Has iga given any post release interviews? He was always rather chatty.
Is it just me, or does food account for most of your stats, not counting equipment and shards?
>>470057475Eating food for the first time gives you a permanent stat boost, if that's what you're talking about.
>>470057346Probably won't til at least the first dlc is out.
It's a hodgepodge of elements from every Igavania that never exceeds the sum of its parts. It's tremendously fun, but it comes with a distinct aftertaste of current entertainment trends--"Remember thing from 20 years ago? Now it's BACK!" Of course the base structure and thematic elements of any Igavania was a given, but Bloodstained phones so much in from SotN in particular, it's impossible not to notice. There's also a problem with how much people laud the developers for being to make a satisfactory product from "just a Kickstarter," like it was an act of generosity. A studio made this game. The people behind it did what they'd been doing all along to make a living. The only difference is the fans paid their salary. This wasn't a case like Undertale where someone had absolutely no outlet or means for a vision without Kickstarter; these project was handled by professionals. If anyone needs to be lauded for their generosity, it's the backers, not anyone else.
>>470058506>"Remember thing from 20 years ago? Now it's BACK!"and that's a good thing
>>470058506for being able to*
>>470058506>Bloodstained phones so much in from SotN in particular, it's impossible not to notice.the game borrows far and away the most from aria and dawn, stop this meme
>>470052310>Every time you need to use the hand mechanic there's always a "REMEMBER YOU CAN DO THIS THING" bookcase nearby.Hope they find a way to make that thing more utilized if there's ever a sequel.
>>470025841Bloodstained >>> HK
How well would Soma fare in Bloodstaineds castle?
>>470019947I never badmouthed him so I have no reason to apologize. I'd praise his game too, it's pretty good.
>>470058639But it also raises the point: "Metroidvanias" kind of never left? Every indie game nowadays, hell, for the better part of the last decade, is a Metroidvania. Igavanias themselves neared a point of oversaturation and lack of ideas, and Bloodstained doesn't exactly shine in the "new ideas" department either. It's like that false narrative that spread around SF4 coming out that "fighting games were dead" when no, there were a ton of them, there just wasn't any Street Fighter.
>>470019947I never doubted him.
>>470058876I replayed SOTN after finishing Bloodstained and this is true, the only thing it borrows from that game is the base concept of being a metroidvania and I think the fighting game styled inputs that I don't think the other games have, and even that isn't unique to sotn since Maria had them in Rondo first. In general Miriam feels more like Soma.
>>470058876If you play it like Pokemon and hunt shards for most of it, maybe. Every single area of the castle is distinctly modeled after sections of SotN moreso than any other. The only exception that comes to mind is the lab that takes cues from LoI of all things, and even that still bears resemblance to the SotN alchemy lab.
>>470059569Oh, I guess there is the near-direct insert of the floating garden in AoS. But you have to be really warped into the "gameplay is the only thing that's really in a game" mindset not to notice all the visual themes being straight out of Symphony.
>>470040157I already have, but not every one of us is traveling Switch-playing businessman like you.Nintendo retards are so funny.
>>470019947Only after we get a cyberpunk Zangetsu game.
>>470040017uh level drain I think?
>>470033738Rami a best.
>>470039259Let's see what you look like.
>>470019947i'm sorry i ever fucking contributed to bloodsharted, the game was absolute shiti couldve pocketed the money and replayed Order of Ecclesia for the 50th time but instead i'm stuck with this great value bootleg castlevania clone with absolutely no soul and NO reason to play over literally any castlevania game
>>470021067nope, did you actually think this was a priority? he has your money, the switch version has already outsold the rest and the game is short as shitthere is absolutely no rush to release a patch
>>470059217>Every indie game nowadays, hell, for the better part of the last decade, is a MetroidvaniaAnd to my knowledge, precisely none of them have any of the defining features that set Castlevania apart from the rest (RPG levels, huge focus on weapons and equipment, multiple spell options, giving all kinds of different builds and replay value).It's like saying that there's no reason to play Battle Network because of the oversaturation of JRPGs. Ridiculous on its face.
>>470061149>absolutely no soulNo shit. They use shards in this game not souls.
>>470062106yes bitch, i'm seething about the fact that i payed to play a shit great value caslevania soul with no soul when all the DSvania's are sitting on my shelf and are instantly 10x better than this hot pile of shit
>>470062371Not the game's fault that you're a no-taste buzzword-spouting faggot.
>>470019947I will when he starts to deliver promised DLC
>>470061320I guess that's true. It's a really fun game and does have the benefit of higher self-awareness of its engine quirks than its predecessors. I guess it's just sorta sad that something that merely retreads charted ground without fucking it up is such a high point for releases. Standards as a whole have really dropped.
>>470062503but it is the game's fault for being an absolute hot steaming pile of shit
>>470063149Bloodstained absolutely does have things that set it apart. The directional aiming shards were a wonderful thing that I felt the previous Castlevania games sorely lacked, the weapon techniques kept things interesting in the combat, and I did enjoy the random food items being more than just HP restoratives this timeBut this misses the point that a game doesn't need to be innovative or groundbreaking to be good in the first place, and no one expected or wanted that for Bloodstained. We wanted the Castlevania guy to make another Castlevania, and that's what he did. No need to fix what isn't brokenThough I will say I would have preferred the gameplay to be more like OoE than the Sorrow games
>>470063564In your opinion at least. The game is quite the opposite for me.
>>470019947>not "Aporogize"missed a fat chance there.
