Guys I thought Castlevania is dead. But it is not. It is just like Dracula. It reincarnated into Bloodstained.

I want more and more games of Bloodstained in the future.

Curse of the Moon is a hit. If Ritual of the Night is as promised then we could get:

Aria of Dissonance
Zangetsu's Quest
Order of the Shardbinders
Stainglass of Ruin

And more titles created from combinations from previous CV titles :D :D :D

Seriously I am still blown away of how such a small game is SO good!

I’m going to be probably the unpopular opinion here, but I’m sadly disappointed in Curse of the Moon. It’s level design feels unfinished and unpolished in spots and I didnt find a single bit of music to be at all memorable. There are parts where it felt solid and polished, and then about 70% of the game felt like it was still in testing. The bosses were incredibly repetitive and not at all threatening. Some of the enemy “AI” was just downright lazy too.

 I was thinking you will like it, really this was weird to read coming from you XD.

I finished Nightmare mode last night, that was such a cool final boss! :o

Working on both Zangetsu only runs now, so far it's incredibly difficult.

My first impressions aren't great, although most of the problems have to do with playing on PC instead of console.  The keyboard controls are awful, although they are configurable.  I don't have a great controller to use with my PC because I never play games on PC.

My only real complaint aside from the platform is the soundtrack.  It's 100% Shovel Knight, and 0% Castlevania.  To be fair, I've only played the first stage, and I have to keep reminding myself this isn't actually Castlevania.  But when Inti Creates's goal was clearly to make a notCV3, would it have killed them to use something similar to the NES's soundchip?

Eh, there's a ton of game left ahead of me.  I'll probably wait til I get my console code before playing more of it, but I'm sure I'll end up enjoying the game overall.

Sorry for quoting myself, but I just wanted to say I've played the game with a proper controller now, and I'm enjoying it.  I played up to level 6 I think, and I'm leaving the rest for later.  I still don't care much for the soundtrack, except the obvious Michiru Yamane BGM for level 5 - and even that is really similar to Michiru's past compositions (the songs from The Pinnacle in Dawn of Sorrow, and the Forest of Doom in Portrait of Ruin, especially).  I actually don't care much for the Lives mechanic, where you don't lose a life until you've lost all four characters.  If you switch to a new character when your life gets low, then you end up with essentially three extra slim chances of survival each time you die.  I'd rather respawn with all four characters at maximum health each time, at the cost of one life point.  This just seems drawn out, although technically it's easier than what I'm suggesting.

What I really wanted to say is that the game is quite good, now that I've played it with proper controls.  I can't hold the keyboard controls and the download code flub against the game itself, after all.  If the soundtrack was as good as that of CV3, I might have to rank this game the higher of the two.  At the very least it would be comparable.

Does anyone else feel that Stage 6 is just poorly designed? Or is that just me?

EDIT: I really hate the fact that if you lose a character you have to restart an entire boss fight, even if you haven't lost a life. It's especially annoying in the Stage 8 boss. I know it's done to encourage you to switch your character, but in these boss fights where all of my deaths have been due to me getting pushed off the stage, it's literally out of my control to switch my character.

EDIT 2: I should remark that, at the very least, I'd like it if when you have to retry during the same life, it doesn't play the boss introduction cutscenes EVERY SINGLE TIME you repeat the boss. It gets so old after a while.

Still waiting on my Switch and X1 backer codes. I had enough eshop credit so I grabbed the 3DS version and beat normal mode yesterday.

really like the nods to the previous games like the _____ in the _____ like in castlevania: ____ __ _____!

but this actually perked my mood up for Bigstained, because this had a lot of nice fresh design ideas that I'm hoping that the similar happens in Mainstained.

1. How did I do for my first shot?

2. Do you think IGA is still actually floating around in this thread so he can read this?

this game really is something else! i can't believe we are lucky enough to have this, basically a new sequel to Castlevania 3. nowhere near as good the art design as the originals but the art is still nice and the sound and music is super wonderful. gameplay wise and attitude towards presentation is very spot on and feels very old school. i grew up with the NES and Gameboy ones and i love all the 16-bit and 32-bit entries and this feels like a welcome addition! just wish the Switch codes would get sent out! ;.;
