“The following is a contributor post by the ABXY Mage.”
Memorable bosses and memorable boss fights are one of the enduring characteristics of video games. And, I don’t just mean final bosses. In fact, for this episode of Side Quests, we decided not to talk about final bosses at all. Instead, we focus on the minibosses you fight on your way to the final confrontation.
Of course, since we’re talking bosses, The Bizzaro Mage, The Off-Centered Earth Mage, and I end up talking about multiple Final Fantasy and Soulsborne games. We also talk a little bit about the gift from God that is Chrono Trigger. This portion of our conversation also covers a few of our favorite, and least favorite, bosses and battles.
So, drink some potions, replenish your mana, and don’t forget to hit that save point. Enjoy!
The ABXY Mage leads a double life of unfathomable hipness, if his expertise in jazz is any indication. Music maker, fandangoist, writer, you can find this hip cat as ABXY Reviews on Twitter and on YouTube.
