Erm, I'm struggling to actually think of any as crazy as that is...

Can someone name some examples for me? :P

#5 Posted by freedomfreak (36480 posts) -

I think it's Monsoon from Rising.

Pretty much any boss from Rising that isn't the final boss.

Kid X-Mas from Remember Me. That soundtrack. Too good. Should be banned.

There are so many amazing bosses in The Wonderful 101, its hard to choose just one, if any, ill go with the multi head dragon, the satisfaction of slicing him in half was amazing.

The Deathstroke battle was pretty cinematic and difficult, but not my favorite. Personally Im having a hard time deciding between boss fights from DmC and Remember Me.

Did you get distracted by her... figure, for just long enough to get stabbed? :P

The Bob Barbas fight in DMC was pretty great, it was pretty much all style over substance but most boss fights are these days.

Well, she does this kind of explosion attack. Does major damage. Besides that, it's pretty easy to avoid/block her attacks. I also got surprised by the fire that came out of her ass.

I should be able to beat her ass though. And I'll never get distracted by a half spider, half woman thing :p
Ewwww!!!

hahah. Yeah, that attack is really powerful, and hard to predict too, but she sorta pauses and shivers a moment before she does it, so once you notice it you can leg it :D .

I got distracted by her... she's an abomination... that ugly spider.... but beautiful woman... whaaa?

Definetly DMC, Metal Gear Rising and GOW Ascension are up there that I can remember.

Exactly. If I get that down, she should be easy enough.

Her design is certainly something :p
I'm arachnophobic. So if I beat this, then I'll beat the entire game 8)

@CrownKingArthur: Who are you?....for some weird reason, your comments managed to make me crack out laughs for the third time

You must have to fight him several times, because I've faced off against him early on so far and he was a really easy QTE fest... It was really disappointing to say the least.

Damn. :no:

As long as the animation is mediocre. Well animated spiders are worse, because they look real :p

Raiden vs Jetstream Sam

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

OR

The last Boss from GoW: Ascension (visually is just mouth-opening)

#28 Posted by seanmcloughlin (37529 posts) -

People praising the Deathstroke fight? It's like 3 sections of QTEs. Cinematic to look at but really shitty gameplay wise and then it's just.... over and that's that. Hardly a talking point

I've heard the boss battles from Rising are great but I haven't had a chance to get in and play it yet, stupid PC version is almost 24GB to download and it's taking me forever

#29 Posted by senses_fail_06 (6727 posts) -

Ellie vs David in The Last of Us is certainly the most memorable.

Honorable mentions include:

Bob Barbas in DmC

Sam in MGS: R

Deadshot in Batman AO

Holy fucking shit.

I'm glad I bought the PS3 version.

Hell, the opening fight with Metal Gear Ray in the tutorial section in Rising is better than most boss fights this generation.

The Vergil fight at the end of DmC was more fun than mechanically good. It built up to that point and was a tough and fulfilling fight. Since I haven't finished Rising yet (just got to the third (?) chapter) I'll name Dante/Vergil as my favourite from 2013.

Gonna go with Senator Armstrong, followed by most of MH3U.

Just watched it on youtube, totally agree it's a pretty terrible boss fight! Was expecting much more considering the amount of praise it's been getting.

That was indeed pretty memorable.

Also the Dragon in Puppeteer, that was pretty amazing.

Any boss in MGR with special mention to Armstrong ("DON'T FUCK WITH THIS SENATOR!") or David in TLOU.

Good going, you rung the second bell now?

It only gets easier harder from here.

I wish you the best of luck with Sen's Fortress, I recommend you summoning to get an idea how to progress through it if you struggle.

She's weak to magic so buff up if you can. Magic weapon is pretty easy to acquire. Combine it with Power Within and you're going to do a truckload of damage.

Also, you can do a summon right outside her fog.

Bugger. Too late.

Yeah, 2nd bell rung. Lit the bonfire in Demon Ruins. Yeah, I'll try and summon more. Haven't really done that.

I appreciate it though :p

I wanted to summon, but I was so convinced I was gonna lose again, so I decided not to use a humanity to reverse my hollowing.

Got her with the battleaxe. I couldn't wield it one-handed because of my strength, but I switched to two-handed to attack her. And back to One-handed for blocking. Did a lot of damage.

Two hand that beast ;)

Good plan, as long as you're careful with using humanity you should be ok. A good tip is to place your soapstone down every time you lose humanity, and get summoned, so you always earn that humanity back.

Yeah you earn an extra humanity every time you co-op and help another player defeat a boss.

I think you also get humanity for killing a player when you invade them too... but I'm not evil enough to do that
