1.-What do you think about a hudless experience? no map on the screen, no health and mana, no damage number and monster names, i would like to have the OPTION to turn off most of these features when i get to play the game, just the OPTION
2.-In my opinion, theres a ton dialog between the characters, maybe another OPTION to turn off the dialog(not the voices) and cutscenes completely in the game, i know theres a option to skip the cutscenes but the last i want to experience its been interrupted by a scene and then move on, i mean you watch a cutscene in whatever game you play, you finish the game, you replay the game and the cutscene interrupts, you dont want to watch it again, i would appreciate to have the OPTION to turn off these two things please =)
3.- The more i see videos of the game, the more i think about dawn of sorrow than sotn because of how the shards functions and the weapons animations, but its missing something, dawn of sorrow has a button that allows you to change the setup weapons/armors and souls, Bloodstained desperately needs something like that and better, as much a like the igavanias i hate the fact that i need to pause the game, go to the menu, select weapons menu, check the long list of swords, shield, potions, one use items, then select the weapon i need/want, so what i think the game needs a button dedicated to swap the weapons, armor and shards in-game, something like you press the button and wheel of circles appears around the character and you see like the most recent options or better options for weapons and armors and something similar for the shards
i dont know how complete the development of the games is, worst case scenario ill be happy with the hudless experience and dialog and cutscenes disable What do you think? REMEMBER JUST THE OPTION, NOT COMPLETELY ABSENT FROM THE GAME OK =)

Let me answer your questions =)
1) Although i wouldn't use a Hudless option in Bloodstained, i don't see why such option can't be avaliable in the game, as an option, yes.
2) This is a bit harder to implement, because some cutscenes actually change where the characters are. Let's take the first boss, Vepar. As soon as the cutscene starts, if you skip it, Miriam "teleports" to a certain spot and Vepar is already there. If you have the option to completely remove the cutscene, you will enter in the boss room and suddenly will be at a certain spot, with Vepar already there. It's a really odd visual effect. The cutscene is there to properly realocate the characters to where they must be before the fight starts.
3) The game will have that feature. If you pay attention, since 2016 Demo, there is a indication of that. In 2016 Demo, you had several "dots" on top of equipment and shards, with hust one light up. At 2017 Demo, you had "Equipment Set 1" on top of equipment and shards. The 2018 Demo doesn't have that, but you can see at the older ones, that they actually had "Sets" prepared to be used. The 2018 Demo doesn't have that, most probably because that will be some kind of ability that must be unlocked in the game. But i'm sure such feature will exist, because evidences of it existes in past demos. Maybe it will be something like Dawn of Sorrow (where you needed Doppleganger soul to use that), so there will be some Shard (most probably Skill Shard) to use Equipment and Shard sets. Or maybe something like Order of Ecclesia (where you need a relic to create Equipment and Glyph sets), so, there could be some special item for that.
I consider Igavania and Metroidvania the same genre, but i call" IGAVANIA" if the game was created, directed or with some involvement of Koji Igarashi OR the game closely follows his path on "Metroidvania Gothic game" style.
ShroudedTraveler: I wouldn't want them in it (I have no love for them, whatsoever), they were just the first 'have a friend' with them character I thought of. Probably because of Smash Ultimate.

Ryngar Acia: I unironically hope they're Asha and Pepelogoo.

Enkeria: Would hope for O.D. for the 3rd playable character. But would be fine as the main character in the sequel too.

XombieMike: It's confirmed to be a cross over character, so not OD

Redogan: Sheesh. Old habits die hard. I jumped on here to read up about the 3rd playable character and instinctively looked around and clicked on a wall mac.

Time 4 Tea: I really like this forum... I just wish it was a bit more active. Perhaps we need a Ritual of the Night 2 to liven things up?

XombieMike: Thanks. I think this place still serves a good purpose for keeping organized linkable info. Most discussions happen on Discord these days.

Enkeria: Ritual of the Night 2 is a thing that will happen. Yes.
Jun 22, 2022 17:19:11 GMT -6
ShroudedTraveler: This is still the primary place I look at for info/updates. Occasionally, I lurk. The discord has too many discussions for me and seems super tight knit, so I typically just leave it muted since I won't check it enough to really break in.
Aug 23, 2022 12:58:34 GMT -6
ShroudedTraveler: And by that I mean, there seem to be regulars and most people are aware of each other, so the conversations move too quickly for me to reasonably keep up with how rarely I check in

XombieMike: The announcements channel is good on Discord. We will post updates here too, though.

XombieMike: The recent Journey update has been neglected here.
