For Your Ears Only – Are boss battles still cutting the mustard? – with Anthony O’Connor

There are several schools of thought to end of stage or game bosses. If they’re too tough they run the risk of frustrating and killing the gameplay experience. Too easy or quick time event based and they lack the appropriate impact. rawDLC investigates if there can be a happy medium between the two.

Boss battles in demon/dark souls are a real challenge. When you finally figured out a way to win, it feels very rewarding.

I have ALWAYS hated Boss battles. And no, it is not because I suck. I just think they feel forced, and contrived. When I make it through a game without them, I only realize at the end how much I didn't miss them.

Ohh look, a glowing yellow spot (what do I do?)... Oh crap, I just walked into a round room with only one door (whats going to happen?)... Is it environmental, or is it a shoot fest? I can care less.
