Got my ps4 code yesterday, gave it a run before i go for sleep, took me less than two hours to finish it on first run. A very nice game overall, but the music isn't close enough to castlevania spirit, other than that, it's a very solid game, only one complain from me, who came up with the idea on the final stage?

A little weird the first released game in the Bloodstained series isn't canon at all, but it's still amazing anyway.

Maybe they'll make a sequel or more Classicvanias in the series later, but keep them contained in their own "timeline" separate from the Metroidvanias?

Curse of the Moon is too good to be just considered a "spin off" in my opinion, but regardless of what they want to call it, I know I absolutely love it for what it is.

Also, can we get an option for Curse of the Moon in the favorite/liked games list in our account profile?

I really feel like the game's quality drops off in the final few stages. Which is unfortunate cuz the game leading up to it is so good.

Just got it on pc today.
I only played it briefly, but what I played was deliciously classicvania.
I hope they make more of these, too.

And I got the long awaited Kickstarter PS Vita code today and unlocked all PSN trophies. The PS Vita rendition is as awesome as on the superior PC-Steam hardware, there're some minor Fps drops in the first vertical "auto" scroll scene in Stage 8 with those worm things involving, which is the thing i didn't notice it was in PC-Steam version, but they are not significantly dangerous threat for the overall fluent and crisp retrospective adventure.
At this point I must admit that I love this game, and can't wait Ritual of the Night!

You know those hyper catgirl-looking enemies that try to meteor crash into you as soon as you aggro them and rub their butts afterwards?

What if I turned Miriam into one of those?

come to think of it, it would be interesting if Miriam can get abilities that transforms her into different things, just like Shanoa could turn into a werebat and stuff.

there's projectile abilities, familiars, transformations would be cool too.   haha, that would be interesting if Miriam could transform into Bloodless. PC gamers could easily make her into a playable skin, and they are around the same height.

the castle must be massive though, it could be interesting how the next demo could present the village's scale, and what is between the village and the castle entrance.

Playing it on GPD Win, I'd argue it makes a better handheld game, then again... *Whispers* Retro games don't work on modern TV's because those weren't meant to be played on huge screens /whisper

videogames are universal, they can be playable on any size screen. just as console games can be ported to portable, so can portables be brought to console.

Pokemon games weren't "meant" to be played on huge screens/consoles, yet the upcoming Let's Go shows that the genre and concept and game format is perfectly compatible for console play as well, even without needing trading/PVP aspects.

sure the series is based on pocket monster collecting, but limiting a series to portable just based on that, is really closed minded on the devs.

even retro gaming standard on console, and look and play better on large TV screens (they dont even have to be huge, even a 32" TV is decent.  heck a 13" TV is better than a portable screen).

so yea 2D or 3D, all games can be played on huge screen/console too. consoles and developers sure dont pick platforms like PS4 for nothing.
even indie devs pick console over portable.

portable is more of a last resort gaming method, or if people are in a living condition where they dont have their own TV and travel too often.

but overall, even most portable gamers only game at home. might as well play on console.  plus TVs are healthier on the eyes than portable screens.

even a veteran developer like Tabata, who chose PSP for FF Type 0, admitted in an interview his eyes has worsened that he was literally compelled to bring FF Type 0 HD to console/TV.  he didnt directly blame portable gaming, but its apparent.  just like how people that cough and have smoker symptoms may never blame smoking for their condition, it still is connected. 

 portable gaming worsens eyesight faster than monitors and TVs, even in well lit locations.

Well in that case I guess we're all screwed because everyone spends portions of the day staring at their smart phones which have the same size screens as portable consoles.

The worst monsters are human.
