Isn’t it DLC for Blasphemous as opposed to Bloodstained?

Yes, you're right although it's been reported in a few places as being for Bloodstained.  Disappointed but I hadn't heard of Blasphemous and I'm tempted to get that now.

I'm a few hours into this now. Should I be save scumming this in on order to get a good ending? I vaguely remember the DS Castlevania games being easy enough to get the bad ending in but I can't remember how avoidable they were.

Up to 98.7% map completion now and I think the final boss is next. I haven't checked to see if I have all the secret areas of the map done but I highly highly doubt I have. 

 

Starting to hate Susie now. I've two quests left to do for her and it looks like that'll involve grinding things out in order to get the last few ingredients I need. It's the weakest set of quests as it's the most grindy by far. Maybe I'll change my mind if the two battles I have to do in order to complete the Lindsay questline are horrible altogether. 

 

Spoiler

Does the 8-bit nightmare count towards map completion?

I think finding those rooms is required but you don't actually need to complete them.

 

Your post has reminded me that I need to go back and finish the game. I died at the final boss and thought I'd try doing done of the side missions but they are so horribly grindy that I put the game down.

 

This game was excellent indeed but this kind of shit feels like unnecessary padding that could have been cut right down without affecting the game at all. Meh.

I think The World Ends With You handled grinding for items perfectly as it exposed all the information and tools you needed in order to improve your chances of getting an item to drop. This doesn't seem to have anything like that which is a pain in the arse. A fiend heart has a 2.00% drop rate and thats it. Improving my luck rating might help with that but I don't know by how much.

If you dont mind checking what you need to kill to get the luck shard, then its relatively quick and painless to grind up the Luck stat.

After you've done that, most stuff will drop within a minute or two of repeated killing the enemy.

 

I did the grind to complete the item trophy, I filled in the gaps in my inventory archive within 2-3 hours I think.   A bit of hassle with guides and a spreadsheet kinda kills enjoyment tbh.  But by the endgame you really can tear around the castle at a great pace

I've levelled up the luck shard and I still had to kill 50+ Haagentis in order to get the flying beef to complete the Susie questline. 

 

I'm sure increased luck helps but the game doesn't tell you by how much. It would have been nice if you could look at a monsters stats and see the both the original drop rate for an item and a current drop rate based on what you equipped. 

 

I beat the second to last boss and then decided to finish off the townspeople's quests before taking on the last boss. I think I'm now ridiculously overpowered for that boss fight as I've gained about 14 levels since then grinding out items. On top of that I realised that maxing out a passive shard makes it into a skill shard so I've gone from having one passive active at any point to having around a dozen. My current plan is to unlock the last whip and do the optional O.D. fight before finally trying the last boss. It'll probably by the easiest boss in the game at that point. :lol:

"Our next update will introduce a new playable character to the game. This is a change from our previously released roadmap.

We can confirm that this new character is NOT from the world of Bloodstained. We have been working closely with a well-known partner to bring their character (and a friend) into the game."

 

 

Wild speculation COMMENCE!

Obviously Mario and Luigi.

My (serious) suggestion is Gunvolt, or maybe Bayonetta, but it's probably Renton from Trainspotting.

 

Was thinking along the lines of Eiyuuden Chronicles as IGA was even in their Kickstarter vid.
