Now, I love myself a bit of the creeptastic. Whether we’re talking straight-up horror, a bit of Tim Burton/Guillermo Del Toro-flavored warped weirdness or something in between, you’d better believe I’m on board.
This has a hell of an influence on my gaming taste. I’ve never been a Souls fan, but I made a big ol’ love-mess in my pants at my first sight of Bloodborne. Over a year later, its blood-drinkin,’ ass-kickin’ gothic vibe still has me hopelessly hooked.
Anywho, why am I telling you this? Because freaking Death’s Gambit, that’s why. This one had the same effect when we first caught sight of the announcement trailer, early last year. Think of it as the offspring of Dark Souls and Castlevania; a damn sexy 2D macabre adventure with a huge side of tactical challenge in the combat.
Most important, these are some freaking badass-looking bosses right here. The bosses of Death’s Gambit are dubbed Immortals, and while that seems a little strong, they sure seem like assholes to me. A lot of them look to be of the enormous undead knight variety, and I’m just fine with that.
What can we expect from these guys? Well, there’s a current deaths/average online deaths tally for each boss, which probably tells you all you need to know about how these fights will go. Check it out:
