PS4/XB1/Switch Bloodstained $32.84 w/ FREE Shipping

 

or

 

Same price @ Walmart for Store Pick-Up  (thx thorbahn3)

 

 

UPDATE 6/20 : PATCH 1.02 HAS A CHEST GLITCH THAT MAY PREVENT GAME PROGRESS.  Be advised.

 

Day One Update will feature Boss Rush and Speedrun modes.  In addition, there will be 13 FREE DLCs down the road. Early reviews are pretty solid overall w/ minor technical glitches  (which hopefully will be smoothed out post-launch).

Why? Does it have exclusives or something?

Some people actually like to just play games on their Xbox One.

Yep, it's my preferred platform for anything that's multi-platform. It's hard to justify paying almost 25% more though.

Tempted to pick this up for PS4 today, but I have a copy on pre-order at Best Buy for Switch with the steelbook.

Yeah, the XB1 controllers are preferable for many people, particularly if you have an Elite.  If I didn't have a PS4 Pro vs. an XB1 S, I'd probably get more stuff on XB1 for the control alone.

 

Also, Bloodstained is a good, fun game - particularly if you are fond of Symphony of the Night.  Don't expect a radical departure from that (other than the 2.5D graphics), but if that is what you want it is great.  I played it quite a bit last night, it came in yesterday from Best Buy.

That's good to hear and exactly what I am looking for out of Bloodstained. 

 

I also wish I had an Xbox One X as I prefer the Xbox One controller (especially the Elite) but I just have a standard Xbox One and a couple of PS4 Pro consoles so I play just about everything on PS4. Not sure if it is the same for the One X or S but the UI on the original Xbox One runs so poorly and I have gotten spoiled by 4K that I don't even want to play anything on it anymore.

Can't believe I backed it. I get no steelbook and the games already on sale day 1. And digital codes are coming tomorrow. Last time I back something.

Its all just down to preference. I love playstation controllers, always have, they just fit my hands perfectly. My xbox just sits there, I havent even turned it on this year because I like ps4 controller better. But I also like I have 0 problems finding people online in games since ps4 is the bigger selling system which translates to more people online, it has way more exclusives on it I really want to play, and even the interface I like better as its simpler.

 

But yeah its just like sotn down to the fast travel portals, little demon helpers you can have, and so on. There was something about the graphics I didnt care for at the start, but by the time I met zangetsu I didnt even notice whatever it was I didnt like before. I just wish it felt a little faster or fluid though, it feels just a hair sluggish but it doesnt really make me not like it, just a minor quibble.

I was real close to backing Bloodstained multiple times, but after seeing this happen with other Kickstarter games I decided not to.

This sale price is still more than the backing price to get the game digitally. For backing at $28 I'm getting Ritual of the Night and Curse of the Moon. If you backed at a higher price than that then you weren't that interested in getting the game cheap.

Solid deal. I am surprised Ritual of the Night is the same price digital as it is physical, I opted for Switch and have to wait a week and hope the game doesn't run poorly.

I'm still glad I backed the game.  You make a great point too.  If you backed the game for more than $28 then you weren't trying to get the best deal possible.  Mine came in the mail yesterday, but I haven't had a chance to open it.  I'm glad most people seem to be pretty happy with the game so far.

 

I think people that backed it are just disappointed because it took so long.  After almost 4 years, a lot of the hype died down, even for me.  Even though it took so long, they were fantastic about constantly updating us every month since the campaign started.

 

Now that the game is on store shelves, hopefully it does well so they can continue making games without requiring a Kickstarter.

Digital copies aren't a deal because they hold no value.

Yes they do, they hold a value of negative whatever you paid for them for the end of time. 

 

As for backing games, after Shenmue III's Epic Store BS, I think I'm done. It seems like some devs are just using KS to bankroll the development and then they bring in a major publisher that makes "major publisher" decisions.

Surprising, but anyway I had already paid for it with Best Buy GCU making it a dollar cheaper. Sucks for anyone else though who paid full price for a game that goes on sale immediately.

I mean, that's all KS is for, bankrolling games with interest free loans from consumers

Just reminder to fellow kickstarter backers, there are plenty of idiots on ebay willing to pay dumb prices for the exclusive slipcases basically making the whole thing free if you want to part with it.

Damn man I wish the DLC was on the cart/disc. Got the NSW version from BBY for that sweet sweet metalcase. Feel a little gross to be buying a game at MSRP tbh

True but I guess it's more that, when I do fund something KS, I am bankrolling the dev. What I don't think is right is when said dev starts development, and then brings in a publisher (who was not mentioned in the KS) and said publisher likely has more decision making influence than they should. 

 

I backed a few games that turned out fine, regardless of how bad the development cycle was so I'm hoping, Epic Game Store BS or not, the game is at least what I expect.

One thing people need to realize, a decent game usually require fund far exceed of what is obtained from kickstarters.  Also, many people misunderstood... kickstarter is not a game preorder, it is an tiny investment to help the game you want to be made have the possibility of being made.  Even if kickstarter goal is met, it can still fail and you get nothing in return.  Afterall, kick-starter is a type of gambling/investment

ALERT : NEW PATCH 1.02 has a chest glitch that can prevent game progress.  Only solution is starting a brand-new save file if you had applied the most recent patch or simply don't apply the patch at all (which adds Bosh Rush & Speedrun modes, improved visual effects and minor bug fixes).  Bummer...
