While all of this is fine, and probably good for the quality of the game itself, I doubt I’ll support another Kickstarter again. I’m not very good at waiting this long for something that technically could end up being not very good or even cancelled altogether. Yes, stuff like that can happen, you know.

I completely agree. Everyone says "stop pre-ordering games" because it creates a false economy of initial sales and allows dev's to take as long as they want to release games... My response is how the fuck is that different to KS? I realise that KS are projects that otherwise may not have been had, but to me personally it's money out of pocket, there's no difference to a pre-order (and I am not a fan of pre-ordering either).

even more shocking was the fact that IGA just worked with 4 people before. No wonder the reused assets.

I remember, about 10-12 years ago, on the Anti-Chapel forums we didn't have the understanding of how Konami operates to this degree. We just kind of assumed it was laziness or being cheap.

"There's no excuse for using 15 year old sprites", we used to say, "Iga really should just make new assets."

Well shit. This revelation, added onto everything else that has come to light in the past 5 or so years, really shows just how ignorant a sizable chunk of the fanbase really was, and the harsh realities of doing what he's done for so long. I mean, none of us thought he looked all that tired when he dropped Portrait of Ruin (where recycled assets finally peaked during his career at Konami), but fuck me is it ever obvious to me now, looking at those press photos again.

I'm glad he's back doing what he loves because we love it too, but hopefully he doesn't work himself as hard as Konami made him work back then. Hopefully he'll use that "big team" to his advantage and take a damn nap on occasion.

How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

@Lumi: Amen. I feel bad for accusing him of reusing assets too. Poor IGA. He needs more hugs for pushing through when Konami delivers shit.
I doubt he's sleeping. He's a vampire, right? Kidding aside, I think IGA looks better now.

For what it's worth, the "leaker" who said there'd be new Castlevania projects (new game and a collection) at E32018 has had another of their "predictions" come true. Isabelle joined Smash today. They previously said: "Disregard ALL people claiming leaks that don't have these two characters [Simon and Isabelle]." He/she has previously gotten Simon, Ridley, Ice Climbers, and Snake correct ahead of any announcements.

I don't really care for E3 anymore. They've become an elitist group and alienated a lot of the so-called 'unofficial' press as well as the majority of game fans as well. They want to have complete control and to do-so they went and done the above. At least the guys who did the webcomic Penny Arcade are doing there own version of E3 and everybody's welcome. No elitism.

Penny Arcade are corrupt and sexist, though, and they even banned a Juliet Starling cosplayer there just because of what she was wearing, which was nothing offensive. so Penny Arcade lost respect.  if they can't tolerate costumes like that,
 Penny Arcade's leaders/rulemakers/enforcers should stay in their basement and not be running some expo/convention.  USA is not Iran nor Saudi Arabia.

if they can't tolerate costumes like that, Penny Arcade's leaders/rulemakers/enforcers should stay in their basement.
or better yet, Penny Arcade's people should move to Iran or some middle eastern country.

OK, guys, let's keep it on topic. If there might be a Castlevania compilation or new game coming, that would probably deserve its own thread, but we can keep this one for Bloodstained. And Affinity, I asked you privately and nicely to tone down your acerbic posts. The digression about Penny Arcade and "sexism" is *completely* off topic--it doesn't even have anything to do with Bloodstained *or* Castlevania. This is really beginning to irritate people, and this behavior is simply inappropriate and beyond the bounds of tolerance. Good-bye.

Ugh, how unpleasant. Back on topic: We haven't had an update this month for Bloodstained, right? After the disappointing news of a delay, I can see why they'd wanna lay low for a bit, but I doubt they'd pass on the schedule they've built up. I wonder if we'll see an update close to the end of the month again...

Yeah, I know how you feel man. I haven't given up on Bloodstained yet, 'cause I know how hard 505 is working to make it a success and I'm confident, given their experience and resources, that they'll do so. But given the problems even my successful Kickstarters have run into, I've completely lost faith in crowdfunding as a practical means of game development. I still toss little bits of money at projects I like (12 dollars for Forsaken Castle and Dark Devotion, 27 to Xenonauts 2, and the most I'll give is 65 dollars for an artbook for Blasphemous), but Phoenix Point is probably gonna be the last project I give over a hundred dollars to.

At this point I am fully confident that I would fund a Bloodstained 2.  Hell they could unveil the kickstarter tomorrow and I'd donate enough to make up for everyone in this thread who is pulling out.  I want Castlevania-like games.  As Castevania like as I can get, ideally that would be an actual Castlevania game, an Iga game is a close second.  If I have to wait so be it.  I've seen what the man can do in a crunch, I'm thrilled to see what he can do with actual time and money.

Dracula was not always a monster. He was once a man named Mathias Cronqvist. A flawed, conflicted, genius of a man. How did the educated, aristocratic, crusader who piously served the church become a vampire, and eventually the Dark Lord himself, the opposing force to God? From a very young age terrors and tragedy shaped the man into the king of all evil. This is his story.

I can't help but wonder if re-releasing SOTN for the ps4 prior to BS coming out was in some way a dig at Iga and ROTN to try and remind people of the iconicism of CV SOTN in particular. They are stupid for not at least considering a Switch release seeing as the majority of CuOTM consumers were on the Switch.
