      how about instead of grinding you play the game casually and if you get a soul, take it as it is, a lucky drop, use it, ignore it, play on.
      Almost like the devs intended?

      If you're playing the game on repeat, whats the issue?

      You don't need every, single, soul. Now the fact you could probably kill a few dozen Succubi, and not get their soul for the true ending, is fricking stupid.

            These are just some examples I could remember right now. Aria has plenty of variety with souls, the only lazy ones being "increase this stat" but raising CON or INT can be pretty useful if you are struggling with a boss fight. Dawn is just like that too, although it has this dogshit soul level up system.

              You can play through the entirety of Aria using souls that directly reference or resemble Maria Renard's abilities in RoB.

              Blue crow - Maria's basic attack
              Student Witch - Cat sub-weapon
              Siren - Songbook sub-weapon
              Altair - Dragon sub-weapon

    I found my physical copy of this game I got back at release the other day. Couldn't believe my saves were still intact when I put it in my gf's old SP to see if it still worked. I thought those save batteries ran out after a while.

        It's been confirmed to be in development.
        Surely it's only a matter of time until we get to see the first footage or art of the game.

          Grabbed the Bloodstained games over this sale. Honestly blew me away. So much hope for this franchise to be bigger than Castlevania. Love the lore too.

            Yeah. Ritual of the Night was a bit rough around the edges in terms of production and visuals. But its gameplay and style is right on par with Castlevania as far as I am concerned. And Curse of the Moon was just a straight homerun its type of game.

            With 3 games under its belt already and a fourth in development, it might actually manage to establish itself as a genuine franchise. Kind of exciting. I hope the games continue being successful.

    It semi-randomizes your playthrough though. And you don't have to grind every monster the first time you meet them for their soul, most of them are useless, save literally two.
