Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night [game, amazing]

GOOD LORD THIS GAME IS GOOD. IT FEELS LIKE NOW THAT EVERY OTHER INDIE GAME IS A METROIDVANIA THAT THE GUY THAT MADE SYMPHONY OF THE NIGHT MAKING A GAME WOULD JUST BE ONE MORE OF THOSE BUT NOPE. MY SECRET FAVORITE PART OF SOTN WAS THE 'PLATFORM SHOES' WHICH WAS THIS EXTREMELY EXTREMELY STUPID ITEM THAT MADE YOU ONE PIXEL TALLER, AND IT WAS LIKE, AMAZING IN THAT IT WAS THIS POINTLESS AND USELESS ITEM THAT MUST HAVE TAKEN SO MUCH CUSTOM PROGRAMING. TO REANIMATE EVERY SINGLE SPRITE ONE PIXEL TALLER. THIS GAME IS LIKE, THAT ITEM, THE GAME. LIKE, VERY LITTLE IS JUST "+1 TO STRENGTH", THERE IS A MILLION SYSTEMS AND LIKE EVERY OTHER THING HAS ABSURD NONSENSE PROPERTIES AND IT'S AMAZING. I THINK REALISTICALLY THERE IS LIKE TEN GOOD WEAPONS AND TEN GOOD SPELLS AND EVERYONE PROBABLY PLAYS THE GAME THE SAME WAY WITH SIMILAR PROGRESSIONS BUT IT *FEELS* LIKE YOU ARE PLAYING A SUPER PERSONALIZED EXPERIENCE BECAUSE OF THE SHEER WEIGHT OF NONSENSE YOU CAN PICK FROM. LIKE THE WORST THING I CAN SAY ABOUT THIS GAME IS I'M MAD THEY ARE DOING SUCH EXTENSIVE DLC BECAUSE I WANT TO PLAY MORE OF THIS AND I HAVE TO WAIT TILL THAT INSTEAD OF JUST IMMEDIATELY RESTARTING THIS ON EXTRA HARD NIGHTMARE MODE.

PS. I ALSO LIKE THE HYPER SPECIFIC CASTLEVANIA REFERENCES, THEY DON'T EVEN HIDE THIS BEING AN OFF BRAND GAME. EVERY CLASSIC ENEMY HAS AN ANALOG AND YOU JUST FLAT OUT FIGHT RICHTER (HIS NAME IS WARHORSE, SO YOU THINK THEY ARE COVERING IT, BUT BEATING HIM AVENGES A MAN NAMED 'RICHTER' ANYWAY) . BEYOND THAT I LOVE HOW ABSURDLY SPECIFIC THE REFERENCES ARE. LIKE THE GAME HAVING FAKE LOADING SCREENS BECAUSE SOTN DID AND LIKE, BEST OF ALL THEY HAVE THE LIBRARIAN SITTING ON A WEIRD TOILET CHAIR BECAUSE THE LIBRARIAN IN SOTN DID. WHY WOULD YOU EVEN MAKE A REFERENCE TO THAT???
