So I finished the game two times now and in the process I upgraded both the health and devil trigger to the max. Now I started to spend the orbs on the other items, like healh stars or gold orbs. I noticed the price of each item goes up every time I buy one, at first I assumed the game makes it more expensive the more of that item you have in inventory, making it pricier to carry too many at one time. But now I used some up and the price stays. Is the price just gonna go up all the time? That would suck, because in that case it would be wise not to use anything until the super hard difficulties. Or is there a price cieling or something?
Cost of items in shop rising?
Yea they do that to try and cap you a bit on just being able to over purchase health items. It makes you plan more for the whole game. Do I really want to use a health item here on level 1 so they cost more on level 10. Making it all that much harder later in the game?
Thanks for the comments, I guess it makes sense beacause once I maxed the health and DT, I could affor to buy all the health I would ever need... this actually makes it meaningfully more challenging. I just wish the game communicated this to me at the start of the game. Also, if you go for the high score, it is better to use health before you die, rather than using gold orb, which reduces the score much more significantly... I need to take a break from the game now, finished it on SoS and unlocked the higher difficulties. And the HoH difficulty is a joke, unless you actually try and go for the highscores, you can do it easily in one sitting, blasting everything with guns. I just put on a bombcast and did it this afternoon.
Yeah I noticed that too because you kind of need items on Son of Sparda difficulty just to get through some levels
In the previous games, the use of any items at all tanked your rating completely. I have no idea why they're so forgiving in this iteration.
