MediEvil’s Bonehead’s Guide to Gallowmere episode 2 has arrived, and this time we’re given the low-down on the importance of changing one’s perspective.
The MediEvil Remake carries over the same third-person perspective as the original game, which positions the camera quite high up and far behind Sir Dan. It provides plenty of peripheral vision, but it isn’t the best when it comes to executing actions that require more precision.
Enter the Dan Cam, MediEvil’s equivalent of the over-the-shoulder angle that’s pretty much a staple in most modern third-person action games.
Sir Dan can use the angle to see puzzles and secrets more clearly, and it’s particularly useful when aiming Sir Dan’s bow or lining up careful blows of his sword.
I’m not exactly sure how crucial all of this information is given that surely every modern video game player knows this sort of thing like the back of their hands, but hey, I won’t say no to more MediEvil footage.
MediEvil’s A Bonehead’s Guide to Gallowmere tutorial videos continue this week with a new episode called “Maximizing One’s Offense,” which showcases the game’s different weapons and secondary attacks.
A new MediEvil video series kicks off today aimed at equipping players with the necessary skills to ward off the undead. It’s called Bonehead’s Guide to Gallowmere, and first up is Using One’s Shield, a shield tutorial to keep Sir Daniel’s rickety body from further falling apart.
If you haven’t played MediEvil –or any hack-and-slash games for that matter– before, you might pick up a few useful tips. Certainly, Sir Dan could have used a shield tutorial before he went charging into battle all those years ago…
For those who are pretty sure they’ll be able to defend the kingdom without any help then, this latest video is at least worth watching for more MediEvil footage.
If you haven’t already, you can check out the first episode of A Bonehead’s Guide to Gallowmere out which was all about the importance of using one’s shield.
