You will have to RUN AWAY FAST if you wish to stop me KILLING YOU!
“Kneel before your master!”
Never before have there been four words which have angered me to such an extent. No matter how many times I play this game, or how well I do in the preceding battles, I always, always, always run afoul of Gill in the last fight. The string of B’s and A’s mean nothing when one comes into contact with the fag that is Gill.
One of the greatest fighting games ever made.
Home of the most annoying boss ever made.
I am in no way claiming that Gill is the hardest boss ever; only that he angers all who challenge him. I play the game on the highest difficulty setting. I know what your thinking. “Maybe you just suck”. But, alas, having browsed the wide realms of teh Internets (mostly Youtube) I have found many who agree that Gill is an irritating character to fight. Sure, its difficult, but when I play most games on hard difficulty settings (Soul Calibur or God Of War, for example), I’m not angry at the enemy itself and I know that I just have to keep trying in order to get better and succeed. Gill, on the other hand, somehow manages to find fresh ways of pissing me off every time I play, and I’ve been playing the game for a long while now and still haven’t come up with a strategy much better than “GET REALLY, REALLY ANGRY AND HOPE MY CHARACTER HULKS OUT”. I do manage to win (with no Hulking out, unfortunately) but only through incredibly trying persistence and numerous attempts.
The Basic Annoyances
The Victory Stance
I must have vengeance…
Gill’s victory pose makes him look like he’s about raep your character. And every, single time he says the previously mentioned four words (which make no sense btw; how am I supposed to kneel when you’ve KNOCKED ME THE FUCK OUT!?) it gets you riled up for another round… but then you lose and hear it again…and again…and again…and again… It’s like being slapped across the face constantly and you always come back for more, wanting to shut this guy up!
No lag time
Now that Ken has been subdued, SURPRISE BUTTSECKS!
The guy moves like fuckin’ greased lightning. He can actually kick 3 times in a second, and his punches come completely out of nowhere, making it almost impossible to parry. it doesn’t help when most of his attacks hit twice either.
I got my ass kicked by him three times, then he barely touches me!
Seriously, after fighting for a while and after a number of restarts, at times he suddenly turns into a bloody pansy; he doesn’t block or attack nearly as much and I crush him. How am I supposed to gain satisfactory vengeance if my opponent doesn’t fight to his fullest!? I feel like he pities me, to such an extent I actually let him win so I can kick his butt when its harder to do… and of course I look a gift horse in the mouth and lose horribly. RAAAGGGGGEEE!
The EXTREME Annoyances
The Low Kicks
…Stupid Ice Queen
When you get up, low kick. When you try and jump, low kick. When you move back, super stretching low kick. The amount of times I’ve been tripped up by his 1-2-3 low kick combo is ridiculous; most of the time they account for half of my health loss. And I still haven’t found a good way to counterattack, for God’s sake. Just punch me in the face, you idiot, thats where I’m most likely to be knocked out!
The Heel Drop
This stupid attack gets you even if your crounch-guarding, and he always leans back so its impossible to hit him. Guess those dance classes came in handy, eh, asshole?
Pure Pwnage Seraph Wing
Hahaha, what the hell’s he gonna do with those wings, flap me to death?
The most powerful, ridiculous attack in the game. Everytime I see him rise up in the air, all I can think is “Oh crap” and watch as either half my life goes away or I’m obliterated completely. Its especially annoying when he pulls it out when he has no life left. Stupid, cheap attack…
And now we present for your viewing pleasure…
BEATING THE CRAP OUT OF GILL!
Beginning with some knees to the crotch…
He then has the gall to laugh in my face…
So I strip away what little manhood he has left.
HOW DO YOU LIKE ME NOW, BITCH!?
A further example of gaining vengeance and crushing Gill (also with hilarious commentary.)
