first of all thanks to everyone involved with this game! It was an amazing experience, even without the released/upcoming DLC. The base game is exactly what I was looking for, it was just as good as Symphony of the Night in my opinion.
Now to the bad thing: After beating the final boss my PS4 Pro went into beserker mode, I was really scared of how loud my PS4 has become. It sounded like a plane taking off. Since I beat the final boss my PS4 gets loud in almost every single game I play. It is only 3 months old (It was bundled with Death Stranding) and I'm afraid to say it damaged my PS4 because I could never hear the fan at all in other games and now it's loud in almost every game. I kept it clean and even opened it up and could see no dust at all.
I can see that there are many particle effects on the screen after the boss but even Symphony of the Night pulled it better off by just slowing down the game, not overheating the game and potentially damaging the console. After searching Google I also found that there are more cases from other PS4 and Xbox users.
dareka: It's a bit more complicated than that. The church comes off as fictional in pretty much all Japanese games because there's nothing like it over there, so they don't really understand what it is. Their closest reference is 20th Century Imperial Japan.

purifyweirdshard: Yeah, Iga told me as much in person (about how they don't really understand it etc). It's almost like an interesting mythological thing/hook for character designs and plots.

purifyweirdshard: I always appreciate seeing it portrayed well though, or at least with people on both sides of it (good religious people and bad religious people)
Jun 28, 2020 16:03:10 GMT -6
dareka: Methinks I'll be doing a thread on the topic soon...

Redogan: Just saw another trailer for CotM 2. Release date: 2020-July-10. Nice. I know what I'll be doing that day.

OwloftheNight98: dareka I wouldn't mind such a thread. I, in particular, want to see a religious protagonist- who doesn't lose faith due to disillusionment or "God was evil all along!"- in a fantastical game setting, to see how would they handle the crazy stuff like this.

OwloftheNight98: AS LONG, as they're written well of course, I refuse to acknowledge half-A'd writing.

RichterB: While far from perfect, the CV franchise has been pretty decent w/ its idea of embattled Christian holy warrior versus evil personified. It's different from a lot of games in that regard. I realized over the years that's been part of its appeal to me.

RichterB: Decided to spend a good chunk of time on that fan art I mentioned. Getting close to the coloring phase. As I was composing it, Gebel and Gremory decided to join Miriam and Goofball...and then a Valefar reference snuck itself in when I wasn't looking.

RichterB: Question: When I'm done with this thing, do I just post it in the fan art section of the forum, or is there someplace I'm supposed to put it to be considered for a future Kickstarter email? (assuming that is still a thing with dev updates.)
Jun 29, 2020 0:40:22 GMT -6
purifyweirdshard: You can post it in the fanart section here. To be considered for an update is something separate, post it to a social media outlet with the #igavania tag

purifyweirdshard: Also, yes, that was a significant part of the appeal to me for Castlevania as well. I've been hoping to see some of it in Bloodstained. That was what my hope in Dominique was all about.

RichterB: purifyweirdshard, Thanks for the info. And sorry about Dominique. But there's always Pure Miriam, I guess? I think maybe the Castlevania animated series sort of misses that thematic beat a little bit. I mean, Sypha's no longer related to the Church at all.

Brainiac: AU Dominique and a buffed Alfred. This is gonna be gooooooooooooooood...
Jun 29, 2020 8:38:18 GMT -6
purifyweirdshard: Hey I don't stan Dominique unless she's changed. But I do/would enjoy seeing Mr. Welldone taken down a few notches...!

gunlord500: LMFAO bloodless killed me in one hit
Jul 1, 2020 3:52:28 GMT -6
gunlord500: it'd take the entire forum and more to beat her like this

Brainiac: Sooooo...who watched LRG3's reveals and is currently quite pleased?
Jul 8, 2020 19:39:16 GMT -6
RichterB: My fan art I've been working on and off on is about 97% done. Just need to clean up a few things. Probably be out next week if all goes well. Prepare for some Goofball! (among other old friends).
