Bitmob - Life in a video game is cheap. Odds are you bite it on a fairly regular basis just bopping through the campaign. Your character explodes in a shower of meaty parts or he simply ragdolls, letting out a manly, yet shrill scream. But then the game resets, you’re up again, and everything’s back to normal. Certain death averted, however many tries it takes.
So it’s a little shocking when death sticks. And when it happens to a fantastic character, someone we’ve spent hours playing with (or as), we feel it a lot deeper.
