31 Days: Day 23 – Watchers


Hello everyone and welcome to day 23 of 31 Days. Today’s song is



Watchers: Bloodborne


This song can be a very tense one. It certainly had me on edge and drums up many memories of super massive fire breathing snake heads. I never thought I would ever type something like that and look at me now. What I like about the song is that it really feels like a back and forth of sorts, you and the 3 (Shadow of Yharnam). I can’t exactly explain it, but it’s very fitting for all three of them. When I listen to this song I can see the 3 of theme acting on their own, and yet in tandem with each other as if they’re in sync with one another. This fight already has some linked mechanics where if one watcher reaches a certain point in their HP pool they will become more aggressive and even transform, as if they can sense the danger posed to one of their own, or themselves. That said it’s wise to lower each shadows HP to around the same level.

I haven’t been able to find much about the Shadow of Yharnam in terms of lore. It’s a mystery to me as to their purpose or how they became what they were by the time you encounter them. The only thing I do know is that these multi-boss bosses seem to be a running thing is souls/borne. The 4 Kings, Living Failures, and Abyss Watchers. Each one does carry their own fairly unique twist on things though, which has served these encounters well. Any thoughts on these fights or perhaps any lore you may have, as always feel free to share.

About Agent9one of us since 12:45 PM on 04.13.2010

Who is Agent9? The not so secret agent of the destructoid community.

A Few things about me

- I'm almost finished with my degree in computer science and I plan on going into independent development and freelancing once I'm done.

- I can be very cynical, but I do try to be positive or curb my negativity. In spite of this I'm actually very jovial in person and I don't get mad often. I would dare say I'm quite happy, even when things seem bleak. I simply don't like industry Bullshit and I'm not one to stand for it, even if it's a game I like.

- I host a series annually called 31 Days where I post 1 horror related or themed video game song a day for the month of october. During this time I also provide keys for games (free of course) to any reader observant enough to find them.

- I've been a member of destructoid since 2010, and a lurker long before then. As such I've seen many people both come and go. Such is the natural order of things.

- I enjoy Art and draw in my spare time

- I also enjoy theatre and films. I especially like Horror movies (both good and bad ones).

- I go camping once or twice a year. I would go out more but my allergies tend to get in the way.

- I don't drink, which may be a surprise to some. I might make a joke or two about it but I stay away from alcohol for my own personal reasons, though you can feel free to drink a pint on my behalf any time you'd like.

This is a commission I had done for me by Inquisitive Ravenclaw. You should check out his site if you like the following piece

I also got a musical piece made for me by the incredible Alphadeus. A little history behind this:

My musical piece came as part of the Songs for Gamers album DLC pack 02. Alphadeus has been making songs for the members of the destructoid community for years already. This past year he opened submissions and I applied. For my meagre efforts I received this lovely piece:

You can find him on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFs2UhJYPVITYWCiqMk-z3w

He also has other venues listed on his profile here, take a look if you are so inclined:

The community is full of people with all kinds of talent and I'm very pleased to be a part of it along with all of you (yes, you too fair reader).
