Well, this certainly looks cool. The graphics are awesome and the gameplay looks fun. I'm not huge on the religious imagery/theme, but you all know I love Dark Souls, and this is apparently very lore-driven, just like that series is. I'll mark it as a maybe, but I think it will be a quick seller for LRG.

Oh yeah, there will be a CE, too (who expected there NOT to be?):

I'm disappointed that LRG is releasing this now. The game is far from finished. So much for physical preservation.

I tweeted as much on Twitter, and the developers (who replied) seem completely oblivious to this. Yes, I know we can download patches to update the game when new content is released. That's not the point!

Is there new content yet to be released?
If so will it be on the disc?
Are there better pictures of the statue?

If someone could ask LRG on their Discord i would greatly appreciate this.
Thank You

Can you expand on this thought? This looks like a "buy" but if it's not finished I'll pass.

I was speaking from public knowledge I read on another message board after I expressed my surprise, but I've now looked it up.

Apparently the game had its fair share of bugs when it was released. A first patch fixing the worst of them was released in late September for Steam, and this may be the same patch that was released for the Switch in mid-October. The second patch will fix the "not so critical issues", but that still hasn't been released for either platform.

They're also preparing another patch that "will focus on quality of life features and adjustments with our future content updates further expanding the world of Cvstodia and Blasphemous".

They are just saying games like Celeste and A Hat in Time (Cuphead another good example- still waiting for it physically but will prob come) waited at least a year or two after digital release to put all the dlc and updates on the disc before it was printed. Blasphemous has only been out digitally for a few months not long at all.

Shovel Knight is another example. Original physical release years ago has expanded a lot digitally and now I think Yacht Club is releasing an evolved physical release of Shovel Knight complete.

This pushes the game solidly into the "no buy" category for me, then.

Cool, thank you for the info. That's a pass then! Too bad, it looks very interesting.

Can confirm this game is FAR from being finished. It has a TON of tiny issues. Nothing game breaking(at least from what I experienced) but so many tiny bugs that are annoying and not worthy of being on a "final" release. This screams "hurry let's sell it asap while we have the rights!!". :evil:

That sucks, I've really wanted to get this one as well, I may still purchase it but all the comments here take away a lot of my interest and make me a lot more wary.

I think the best analogy for the state of Blasphemous right now would be to compare it to something like Dark Souls or Darkest Dungeon in terms of patches/future dlc and new content. I'd only recommend buying this release if you REALLY want to play Blasphemous asap, otherwise the game is probably only 60-70% complete from what it'll end up looking like 12-16 months from now and there'll undoubtably be a Playstation 5 physical Complete Edition.
If a game doesn't run at 60fps then it isn't worth playing.

So I see that Jak X is getting a release on the same day.

Am I right in thinking that if you ordered all the previous Jak games and order Jak X that you get bonus in the form of a slip case for your games, or was this offer only open for people who ordered the LE?

I remember something being mentioned when they announced the first Jak game.

Reminder that if we don't get an update from LRG, I wouldn't bet on them waiting for not only the bug fixes but also all the planned future content taken from the game kickstarter page: boss rush, ng+, hard mode, weekly challenges, etc. None of these are yet in the game. This is way too soon and the LRG staff seem clueless about all of this. They had one job...

The page says that it will not start shipping until 1-3 months after sales are over.
I hope LRG see the light and at the very least put all of the patches on the disc in those 1-3 months.

They most likely won't. Remember that it takes time to manufacture discs. They have to send a build to Don't. Once they send it, it will be whatever it's available at that time, not what comes out 1-2 months from now.

I could live without the extra modes like New Game+, Boss Rush, Weekly Challenges, etc., but the bug fixes are critical.

We still have time until the end of the month to make a final decision, though. Let's see what happens.

Anyone else noticed that the PS4 version of Blasphemous said $29.99 until pretty much just about when it went live? I skipped it today, haven't decided if I want it on Switch or PS4 yet, if it's on Switch I can easier neglect if there's any future DLC while on PS4 it sucks if there's one with additional trophies.

I saw it was lower for most part of the game, but when I came back to the store after checking out it had been changed to match the Switch price at $34.99.
SLG doesn't do it, Red Art doesn't do it, most retail publishers/sellers don't do it, but hey price parity with Switch it's tha thing!

I noticed that too and could have swore that It was listed as $30 when I last checked. I picked it up on PS4 though as I’m not a Switch collector.

I did find it unusual that i was logged out approximately 5 minutes before everything went live.
I assume now that it is because they were changing the Blasphemous standard price.
Utterly shameful!

I just checked the email I got to say the games were live and it’s listed as $29.99. To change the price just before going live is pretty shady. A few people had contacted them on Twitter asking why, but they’re silent at the moment.

They probably won't respond either, the LRG of today are just as bad if not worse than companies like EA/Acti etc

You have to provide a screenshot of the price your referring to if you want to verify that price. This is the best way to verify if there something going on there.

That's some mighty big stretch going on here. LRG has a better reputation then EA/Acti etc at this point. If your saying what your saying show some verified links and story for the rest of us to read to verify this legitimacy your taking about.

Not really, LRG have acted like assholes towards myself, so from my experience they're worse. EA customer support for me has been great.

Are you going to completely forget the blatant lies, stealth price changes, banning of people etc etc there's a long shit list they have.

oh and

Since we're in the drama posting mood, I'll add to the fire.

The CE of Blasphemous did not have a limit at the AM sale, so of course it sold out quick and people on Twitter were upset about the "catering to scalpers." Now for the PM batch there's a limit: 2 per customer. :?

But hey, I'm not buying it, so 8-)

Still meanwhile... I already got a shipping confirmation from HCG for The Bridge. Ordered, partially refunded for erroneous shipping cost, and shipped, all on the same day.
