From what I understand, the console ports are terribly glitchy and the steam version less so, but still pretty finicky...:(

I just beat the ps4 version last night, best ending.  Other than the chest glitch from the patch, which I was easily able to work around without having to restart, I had no noticeable glitches other than the green circle from one shard staying around me after a deactivated it.  Nothing that effected the gameplay at all.  Maybe I was just lucky, but I am assuming people are complaining and exaggerating because it is their nature to do so.  I thought it was fantastic.  I need to digest it more, and experience the plethora of other modes and features coming our way, but I feel this very possibly could be Iga's best work yet.  I certainly prefer the Castlevania aesthetic, this was just a bit too colorful and anime-y for me, but I am still blown away in general.

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.

Some people say it is bad other say it is perfectly fine for a handheld.

I will surely buy it on Switch just to support IGA even though I just 100% the game on PS4.

I have no problems with lower resolution or 30 FPS with dips. I am not that elitist in terms of performance. All I need is for the game to be playable and fully packed on the physical media.

Don't think this was posted yet. A synopsis of the history of the development of Bloodstained and everything it went through to get where it is now.

I want to know who that mysterious benefactor for the game's initial funding was.

Yeah, I saw a comparison video and somethings looked to have more details. I'll probably get it because it looks good. I only wish I donated to be in the credits.

Playing through NG+ on hard, and this game is fantastic. I wasn't too impressed with the bestiary at first, but it gets better. The environments are gorgeous. I've played SOTN to death, so this will be my go-to for Metroidvanias for a long time. Trying to see how strong I can get for Nightmare Mode through stat boosts from food and shard rankings.
I like big butts, but I do have the tendency to lie quite a bit.

At least it certainly seems like the team is determined to fix things with the Switch port: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/iga/bloodstained-ritual-of-the-night/posts/2547316

I must say there must be some ups and downs compared to what I'm expected when the game is still in  Kickstarter campaign era but is still better than nothing, I've dealt with almost everything in Lecarde Chronicles 2 style during the 100% item collection quest and it works excellently.

Bloodless is so good in character design-wise, don't get the fact why they didn't include her in the Boss Rush mode

Ok I downloaded it. Only killed the first boss though. It's been fun.

WOW THIS IS AWESOME!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/iga/bloodstained-ritual-of-the-night/posts/2556102?ref=ksr_email_backer_project_update_registered_users

That's neat, but some of us already beat the game, and this is barely under a month after the game was fully released.

IDK, does anyone else feel like this game should have been delayed a month or two? No, not for multiplayer or other BS per se (though it'd be nice if all of the features they promised were already here as opposed to us getting the base game which is fine, but in the end, a more complete product that also performs better *coughs* Nintendo Switch *coughs* would have been a fine enough reason to delay it or to not have announced a Summer release date in the first place, IMO), but just to make sure everything just worked on launch with no glitches or weirdness, even on the PC version which, like the situation with Mighty No. 9, was the best version of the game probably because they made the game on a PC and didn't account for weaker spec systems.
