I sympathize ugh! I think that’s the main reason Order of Ecclesia is still my favorite even if it’s not the best of the best in the castlevania franchise. Bonus points since the character designer was a woman too.
I’m going to be playing that next, so that’s awesome. (Previously to this I’ve played Harmony of Dissonance and Aria of Sorrow, as well as the Player 2 on Harmony of Despair — my boyfriend leveled up a Shanoa for me. :) )
