By the time you reach the final boss in The Banner Saga, you know it's gonna be a rough fight. Hell, you've spent the entire game barely scraping by, winning a few fights here and there by the skin of your teeth while being forced to make one terrible decision after another. Pretty much all your clansmen have starved to death; the few that remain are either babies or sickly old people. But now, finally, the end is in sight. Except there's just one problem: Bellower.
As if Bellower isn't hard enough to take down thanks to his crazy high strength and armor stats, he comes with a full compliment of powerful allies. What's worse, it's entirely possible to start the battle with your characters still wounded from your most recent skirmish. Characters in your party try to assist by saying, "Hey, all you gotta do to win is take down Bellower himself!" And, while accurate, doing so is basically impossible. That's because, A) his buddies will cut you down if not dealt with, and B) he fucking heals for an insane amount each turn. For some, The Banner Saga will no doubt go down as one of those games with final boss too frustrating to beat. Better luck next time.
