Another Princess, Another Boss Battle

In next week’s all new episode of the Moving Pixels podcast, we’ll be looking at Jotun. Somewhat in the vein of Shadows of the Colossus or Titan Souls, Jotun is a game that is all about the boss battle.

With that in mind, I thought it would be fun to revisit a discussion that Nick Dinicola, Rick Dakan, and myself had about the relevance or possible irrelevance of the boss fight to contemporary video games.
