    I'm pretty sure it's all of them. Damn shame we can't consult the instruction manual to find out!

    Konami is really pissing me off with this game. Which is odd, because I REALLY like the game. I just can't stand the way they've handled it.

    Its based on the levels of all of his subweapons. I should know. I spend 30-45 minutes per subweapon leveling the damn things all the way to level 9...

    My latest LBP2 level: Contra Hard Corps.

    30-45 Minutes? Survival Mode? Thats the only thing I haven't tried.

    Pff, talk to me when you've maxed every character. And yes, ALL subweapons count.

    I ran this 30 times yesterday and saw everything in the drop table except Badelaire (Alucard only sword that gets better the longer you play, topping out at 55 attack which is the same as the Golden Axe. Looks like a white Alucard sword). HERE IS WHAT I HAVE LEARNED

    You can take a massive shortcut with two players by having the Player 1 side people get to the end of the trap switches with falling spike traps room. The second from last switch from the golden door will open the other golden door for the right side so that they can walk right into the second Final Guard's room and activate the elevators to the boss. It takes about 2-3 minutes to reach Astarte this way. Don't forget the beef curry before you engage.

    To obliterate Astarte in Hard, equip Ancient Armor since it neuters her attacks, hit her from behind for about a second, jump over her before she turns around (or you will occasionally eat delta spark from a late jump), rinse and repeat.

    Alucard should use Fist of Tulkas, Soma should use Claimh Solais, or Kaiser Knuckle and Longinus with the Mummy, Witch, or Nova Skeleton soul if you are welfare.

    To dodge COME HITHER (TEMPTATION!) as the lady characters run away from her and slide when the hearts get near you. Soma can double jump and hover over her head, Alucard can mist, Jonathan can roll, danger knee, or sonic strike. Roll is the most consistent for me.

    Astarte's soul/bound spell is awesome and you should use it because its SO AWESOME.

    Here are the drops:

    HARD
    Badelaire (5 star)
    Royal Crown (baller helm)
    Dress Decollete (baller dress)
    Wing Boots (3 or 4 star rarity. I saw 6 in 30 runs)
    Valmanway (probably still very rare, only saw one)
    Minerva Mail
    Poetic Justice Achievement (har har har)

    NORMAL
    Kalesiris (not baller chest)
    Uraeus (not baller helm)
    Mercury Boots
    Lapiste/Pneuma

    Yes. Try the hard one for level 1. I used my SF4 controller cause the thing had turbo buttons so I just could keep the right buttons pressed. Just press jump/backslide and spam your B attack. Every damage dealing hit will level up your weapons. I used one master ring and one Astral ring for best results.

    Purple/Boss chests in Chapter 5, 6, and 7. Chances are you have one already if you play as Alucard.

    Yeah, but I sold most of the gear I never used. I kept the Kaiser knuckles and Jeweled Knuckles for some reason. Hard mode, right?

    I trust golden axe is a non Alucard weapon.

    No, Golden Axe is a bitchin' arcade game.

    Man, I was expecting at least a new character or two along with the level. Just one level isn't worth 400 points to me, so I'm going to pass on this, at least for now.

    I dont think anyone will disagree its overpriced for just one level, but it fun...and waiting to purchase may also just tell komani to not bother with the rest of the dlc.

    Just think of it as a donation to save 2d castlevania just in case the 3d one coming out this month turns out to suck.

    That Japanese ad from a while back that everyone assumed was fake due to all the dates being wrong had the stage and characters each coming out a week a part. Though it said August, so it obviously had some things wrong with it, it's possible that "release something each week" is true and the ad was real but made before some delay came up or something.

    If so, I'd imagine Julius would be out next week and Yoko or Maria the following week.

    Edit: I haven't gotten the DLC yet but plan to get it when I get home from work today. However, I heard that Charlotte's new spell doesn't power her up at all. Absorbing more copies of it only increases the power of Delta Spark itself, and not anything else.

    Extra ranks in Delta Spark do not increase Charlotte's stats.

    The spell is pretty awesome though.

    They wouldn't try selling one character for $5, would they?

    A map for $5 is pushing it... I think there's almost no way I'd spend that much on a single character.

    I'd expect the characters to be 200 points each ($2.50).

    Honestly if they were willing to charge 400 points for a map, I suspect the characters will also be 400 points a pop.

    I'd expect the stages to be that much too, but Konami is proving me wrong!

    I was expecting 400 points for a map and two characters in a single package!

    That is actually what I was legitimately expecting for them to do. When I found out it was just the stage I was pretty dumbstruck. They waited this long for DLC and now they're going to nickle and dime us? No way. I'll stick with my vanilla game.

    I'll only pay for a Belmont. And if it's $5, I only pay for Simon. For $5, I could care less about the others.
