This might amuse you guys.  From the strategy guide:
"O.D. does not hate humans and will do them no harm, for he believes theirs is already a hard lot. He also strongly dislikes garlic, especially when humans eat it. Still, he is quite the enigma. Perhaps he is hiding something?"

The warning page at the start is pretty funny, too.

Aaand I'm gonna file that (and pretty much O.D. in general) under "I Can't Believe They Got Away With This". :v
It is precisely because it never cared, that people do care.  It's something which it's lacking, because that which it has, it has lackluster of.

O.D.'s pretty much Alucard with a colour change, no getting around it.

We'll just have to wait and see whether or not Konami comments on it.

unfortunately, it's barely playable undocked still, noticable input lag, techniques being REALLY hard to pull off, and 30fps still feels sluggish due to frame-drops.
Docked the game is just fine, but I got this mainly for portability, so I'll just let it collect some more dust until it's optimized.

Consumables, equipment, crafting, treasure chests, quests and story cutscenes are disabled when playing as Zangetsu.

Ugh. We're really doing it this way again, eh?

Hi, nearly every single IGA extra character mode, all over again. Remember when Julius mode had the briefest of brief cutscenes in Dawn of Sorrow and it made it feel like a legitimate mode instead of something just kind of tacked on?



I know it's asking too much to want a full second campaign, but maybe just replace the Zangestu boss with an evil Miriam and a couple scenes when he confronts her, Alfred, Gebel, and Gremory. Hell, they don't even need voice acting. I'm good with text. And consumables, come on. Just because it's a new character doesn't mean I asked for the difficulty to spike. I liked the balance I had. Come on Igarashi; you're not at Konami anymore and this is one of the most heavily funded Kickstarters in history. Can you throw us a little bit bigger of a bone than this?

Kinda wished they hadn't added this mode if this is all we're getting out of it.

You know, AGAIN.

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.

I'm not much into difficulty either, but I will check this DLC out when it's ready.

As time passes and i see what we get, i'm starting to feel disappointed, i was expecting more from Zangetsu mode, instead we've got another Richter mode, so my guess is that in 1 year that they are going to release the third character, it will be  the same empty mode, also no rogue mode, something that makes me believe that we wont get the boss revenge mode.

If there is another bloodstained kickstarter, i won't support it.

I like difficulty and old school games, so this is no problem for me.  Now, I want an update on classic mode, that is what I am most interested in.

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.

Apparently the flag isn't set correctly for those who have already beaten the game, so you'll have to beat the final boss again. *shrug*

The boss is cake anyway.  Especially with that explosive bomb shard and with every support shard at maximum.

They should've allowed Zangetsu's hook to pull him up to platforms Bionic Commando-style.
