You can read my thoughts about the fight in the ‘spoiler’ section below:


To be honest, I thought this was a bit of a pitiful boss compared to the others I’ve fought so far. I guess it balances out nicely with the nightmarish area that you go through a million times before reaching him, but I wasn’t overly impressed or intimidated by the Iron Golem itself.

I’ve edited out quite a bit of footage that wasn’t relevant to the boss fight. Listening to myself talk about the strategic decisions I was making with regards to blocking, damage output, learning his moveset and finding the right timing has strengthened my belief that I was on the right track. I ended up summoning for this fight, because I felt it wasn’t a huge challenge and it was merely a matter of time before I would kill him. It was clear to me that he was going to die soon enough and since he didn’t impress me much, I wasn’t expecting the full sense of accomplishment that I thrive on anyway. Considering I’d been streaming for almost four hours at that point, I decided to get it over with.

I decided to include all of my attempts in this video, because the final fight was over within two minutes. It wouldn’t have been much to look at, so I figured I might as well have some creative fun! I hope you enjoy what I’ve done with it.
