well its messed up.  its not like americans and europeans are all proud of their people and the evil and wretched side of their history/cultures, but most dont run away from scenarios that closely resemble their land and people.   they focus on the fun escapism aspects of the game. 

yea with Japan is can be more sensitive, but the more they run away from resemblances, the more they undermine the beauty and positive side of their people and land at its realistic essence. otherwise, what other country is going to represent Japan's people and land as realistically and maturely as it is?  what other country of developers is going to glorify the real representation of Japanese and its wonderful people and country?     when all regions are making games that glorify america/europe/caucasians mostly, that really oversaturates the market.  then they cultivate problems of acceptance of asians as lead characters in games and asian civilizations in general (which are still too rare in games, meanwhile some Japan companies wasted millions for generations making games that pander to westerners like american influenced Metal Gear Solid and american dominant Resident Evil.  where are the AAA games that glorify realistic Japanese characters in Japan? well yea Sure there is Shin Megami Tensei, but thats always been so presented as anime. that's why I respect and support even sim games like Disaster Report 4, at least it has more Japan authentic representation and feature more realistic male and female japanese people to play as in a more immersive Japanese world)

but aside from that, people shouldnt think I want Bloodstained to be Japanese themed, of course not, even if it wasnt an IGAvania, I respect its art direction and the part of the world and races it encompasses.  :)anyways this side subject was partially related to the whole marketing side of things, which brought up Sony, and then things that have been neglected and related subjects came up after that.

though still back to Bloodstained ROTN, I can see where all the rants and nitpicking is going,

and people have to be aware there are A LOT of twisted people that want Bloodstained ROTN to flop.

overcriticizing and bashing it is what the haters would want.  ROTN doesnt seem to be getting the mainstream media backing, so the fanbase would undermine its reception being so harsh towards it.

theres really low probably it would turn out bad, and even IGA's weakest IGAvanias, LOI and COD, are overall solid games.

ROTN is definitely gonna surpass SOTN, Circle of the Moon, Aria of Sorrow, Dawn of Sorrow, Portrait of Ruin, Order of Ecclesia, etc. etc.

anyone that likes COTM could like ROTN even more.  IGAvanias have more depth and substance than classic Castlevania type games.

the IGAvania fanbase shouldn't overcriticize ROTN like the toxic Dynasty Warriors fanbase did towards DW9 (which really is better than the conservatives care to see. even for the first time ever, Koei cared to add Chinese voiceovers, alongside English, Japanese, etc. 

and those ingrates whine about clone weapons, whine about open world, ignore the superior story presentation, the superior more flexible combat system that is less dial a combo and more pick your move, and dont care to look at all the great things. and now they are already bashing Warriors Orochi 4 for being 'more of the same old school musou").

yea ROTN could get polish but there are fans fine with how it looks and would play full game with how it looks now.

I'm not even gonna delve into your political discussion, but these are both very bold statements.
How is it gonna surpass SotN, COTM, or OoE if it doesn't have the graphical polish that those games have?
Why do people wanna play a game that they know was not made to the best of the artists ability?

You talk about how people hate on it and nitpick it but you filled an entire damn page about an argument for a feature that can be turned off.

If you expect people to take your arguments seriously, then you need to take them seriously. Have some consistency at least.

COD, are overall solid games.

I'm just gonna nitpick this one point.

Speaking as someone who loves the game dearly: no it goddamn isn't. It's a trashy B-movie of a video game that should be enjoyed as such. An analogy: just because I find Galaxy of Terror a fun movie to eat popcorn with friends while viewing doesn't mean it equates to something like Saving Private Ryan. One is "so bad it's good", and the other is objectively great and one of the finest examples of its artistic medium ever made.

CoD is more like Galaxy of Terror than Saving Private Ryan. It's schlock, but if you're in the right state of mind, it can be enjoyable schlock. It's not, however, a solid game in the slightest, and Iga would probably even tell you that if you asked him. And, by the way, you totally can. He's on Facebook.

Always remember that "fun" doesn't always mean "good".

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.
