Why are skellingtons the shittiest enemies in any game they are in?
Is there a game where a skelle or skellington-type enemy is actually good/scary?
These motherfuckers too
shouldn't skeleton enemies be stronger than a normal flesh based enemy? the way i see it, skeletons don't have muscles moving them. they are usually moved by some kind of magic. the magic should be able to make it change shapes and move really fucking fast. i don't understand why don't fly
but it honestly should be more. i feel like they should have some kind of speed bonus at least. more things should have it so that you need to destroy the entire skeleton to defeat it. if not the hands or random bone can just keep hitting you
It's done pretty good in Dork Souls. Skeletons crumble when hit but get recombined almost instantly, they're fast and they have several types of fast attacks, including torpedoing themselves right at you.
And that's just normal skellingtons, there are also giant skeletons, dog skeletons, wheel skeletons and baby skeletons.
>implying skeletons are untrustworthy
Fuck off, fleshbag.
We're cool guys.
>why are skellingtons the shittiest enemies in any games they are in ?
Because you're a retarded necromancer who just animate a bunch of bones like some kind of puppeteer.
I'm a free spirited skeleton who can do what i want.
I thought you vampires were supposed to suck blood, not dicks.
>there hasn't been a single skeleton character in any disgaea game
Inside every Paladin, there's a skeleton waiting to pop out.
2 spooky skeletons is actually one of my favorite memes. Seriously cracks me up.
>Enter Skeleton Lords fight in DS2
>The caves is made of skeletons
>skeleton music starts playing
>The skeleton lords burst into smaller skeletons
>mfw someone actually put time and effort into creating this
Beautiful, isn't it?
Goes to show that there are still real artists in this world, who genuinely care about what they create.
There's a skeleton inside every single game, anon. Every single being that is in those games...inside their bodies...they're waiting. They're bidding their time, waiting to surface. Soon...
Skeletons are the unsung heroes of every game. Always staying in the shadows, supporting everyone while out of sight, because they know nobody could accept it any other way. They won't be remembered, but their sacrifices were real.
God bless skeletons.
There are no greater heroes.
In Diablo 2, Skelemancers were very potent throughout the early stages of the game, then died off in the middle when they usually lacked gear to get massive amounts of +skills to the summon tree.
Then, near lategame, when you are able to acquire many +skill items, auras through mercenaries and their items, skeletons once again become a force to be reckoned with. Endgame Necromancers in Diablo 2 (LoD, of course) could Teleport on you and one shot you with Skeletal armies that also lagged the shit out of enemies.
I played a Bone / Skeleton Hybrid in .10 when Marrow bug was a thing, shit was so cash. Best of both worlds.
>Is there a game where a skelle or skellington-type enemy is actually good/scary?
It's like playing a skin flute. What's more badass than playing an instrument made out of your own body?
Yo imagine this /v/.
A game where you're a skeleton raised by a lich.
Innately skeletons can't do much, but as you become stronger the lich gives you enchanted gear (think swords, bow, and wand at first). Eventually you could become more powerful than you were in life, becoming an undead knight, archer, or wizard. Then final boss would be
the heros you normally play as.
>Mfw this thread
It´s not so bad being a skelly, a bit cold maybe.
Do reapers count as skeletons?
>dat subject matter
yeah no way am I watching anything that spooky, nigga.
These faggots really wouldn't have been so bad, but you meet them in a place where it's obscenely dark and your only likely source of light takes up a shield slot, AND you have to be ultra careful of your positioning because one wrong move will send you flying off a cliff.
>tfw Halloween only comes around once a year
>tfw you realize you may only experience 50-60 good Halloweens in your lifetime
I feel like skeletons in games should stay roughly as they are. The way I see it, it takes a large amount of magic to assemble a skeleton, give it a minor amount of intelligence, and let it walk around for even a day. So even if you could make a skeleton more powerful, it wouldn't be efficient since most necromancers I assume would have groups of the things wandering around. Now if they were a rare enemy it would be a different story, but in most games they are a semi common enemy.
Scare the life out of the living. Some hide in barrels for years just waiting for the right moment to spook someone. Some tap on your windows at night to arouse quite a fright. Others creep up behind you when you're walking alone at night.
>not realizing we are but mere skeletal larvae, waiting to burst out of our flesh cocoons when we "die"
They made coffins to contain your skeleton at death because they fear them and are unwilling to try to understand them. The only alternative is being burned to ashes, so your skeleton is no longer able to function.
A skull is also a symbol of intelligence. It's a marvelous product of evolution. The cranium is quite amazing, housing the brain and protecting it from all but the most lethal blows.
This thread is getting me randy, it makes me want to dust off my anatomy and physiology book and reread the section that highlights the skeleton.
This video gave me the spooks for weeks
>You'll never become a skeleton necromancer to raise more skelebros
>You'll never be invited to their skeleton parties
WARNING: extremely spooky video. do not watch if easily spooked
Mods tossing out bans for posting that image, be careful skellybro.
Also I would fucking love to play as a skeleton in RoR. I don't know what moveset he'd have but it'd be tight.
>tfw no skeleton party game
Come back after you beat Medievil and get all the soul chalices, pleb
>you can travel through time to rape famous historical figures from the past
Conquistador or Top Hat. Hard to choose.
The Flight and Magnetic Bones are a must.
Spooky Tomb to keep people out.
Kelly Goldstein because sometimes sexually assaulting people as a skeleton gets boring and you need to throw down.
Magnetic bones/Ultimate form
Eric Von Skullkill
Imagine Von Skullkill's surprise when he finally tracks me to a mundane museum and stares in horror as all the bones in the place conglomerate into a superskelly. There'd be like, a T-Rex in there I bet.
Fat, top hat wearing skeleton with the powers of hypnosis and time travel. I live in a museum and Kelly Goldstein is my nemesis.
By day, I fool people into thinking I work at the museum, where I trap them and gang rape them. At night, I go back in time to rape Hitler and FDR, along with whoever I want. I get the museum to be as high-profile as possible through time travel shenanigans, and the lesbo can't do anything to me since it'll look like she's trying to kill a random citizen who works at a fancy museum.
>Why are skellingtons the shittiest enemies in any game they are in?
Now what you've done here is set up a very niche situation. Your global rape abilities are low, although your synergy with your skeleton brothers is pretty good. That and magnetic bones is all you've got going for you though. Eric Von Skullkill would never go to a museum with bones in it and not be overly prepared. He might have holy water or crosses or anything to repel you. Even if you kill him you still have little ability to get out and rape people because your strength lies in ultimate form and tricking people into entering your museum. If you want to be a proper sexual assaulter you have to think this shit through.
Post videos with skeelytons
You're right. I think I went a little too flashy with what I was expecting to be the climax of the story. Still, museums are almost always one of the centralmost locations in cities, which means it'll be a pretty good base of operations to get out and go gangrape nonetheless.
I- it;'s one of my favorite N64 games...
What's with this perpetrating the skeleton archer myth? Skeletons could use crossbows or guns or boas or even throw boomerangs
(boneranges), but it's always gotta be a bow. Fucking fleshy privilege.
No clue if Vaporware, only posting the gifs for it, but I hope it isn't. I want a good Necromancer game
What if your waifu has a male skeleton inside of her. Does that make you gay?
Humans have to use guns and other weapons because Skeletons are such good archers we put them to shame.
Skip to 10:10
I cried for nearly 5 minutes straigth
One of the RoR devs is working on the game, it isn't made yet sadly, but hopefully he completes it and doesn't let it die.
"The game is still very touch-and-go, so no plans to where it heads. I’d like to keep the game single-player; partially because of my incompetence in net coding, but also partially because you have to begin sacrificing elements to make a game multiplayer.
As for a kickstarter, probably not. I don’t have a particular reason to do one, as funding is no longer an issue. While it is a convenient platform for pre-order rewards and publicity, it just wouldn’t be very right to ask for money I don’t need.
I’ll post alphas once the game is in a decent state, just like I did for Risk of Rain. Any ideas for names?" is the latest news
Eyes are for humans, why don't you just be a zombie if you love eyes so much.
>that high speed ass shaking
>IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST WE WANT YOU OUT
>implying these cunts aren't terrifying
Liches are cool and all but they dont care about hanging out with their skeleton buddies or doing skeleton things like playing the xylophone or spooking people.
Liches need a good hard look at the mirror
liches are like skeleton nobel prizes who just care about skeleton science
I'm making a 3d horror game and I'm really open to new ideas since each level will be very different from the last to ensure the player doesn't get too comfy with the mechanics.
What would be the best use of standard skeletons? A small skeleton that bursts into more skeletons?
>you'll never have a skeletal waifu who you hug despite how cold her bones are
>she'll never help you get the remote behind the couch with her long skeletal arms
>you'll never help build her confidence about how beautiful she is to you
I have some exoskeleton in this folder too
How good do you think all of your skeletons would be at fighting demons?
>immune to fire
That's just not true.
Caught me off fucking guard.
>This thread is getting me randy
How's that? Are you getting a
Well I don't own physical copy but I have scans
Because they can rock a serious Latin groove, but of course they're no match for Gitaroo Man.
Volgarr the Viking has fucking great necromancer level, half of the enemies are skellingtons with silly names.
Fleshwoundwearing green cloths and using a shield to prevent you from hitting his silly skeleton face.
Mc Stabbyin blue cloth who also has a bitching sword, he will try to cut you with it.
Sergeant Crunchwearing pimpin' red clothing, not only shield + sword but also stylish viking helmet, he also knows a pair of simple combos.
Skele-Ton15 feet tall bitch ass skellies who will crumble the earth to send seismic waves at you, he's very buff 'n' big.
Space Station 13.
Skeletons are not only playable, they're pretty much a straight upgrade from any other race.
Motherfuckers don't bleed and don't need air, so they don't give two fucks about bladed weapons or air leaks.

Crack jokes and classiness at every turn lke a modern day Morte, and if things get rough then is BREAKDANCING TIME!
Who need gang rape when you can lay quick verbal jabs and hooks?

Those fucking walking animations.
Sorry, couldn't be bothered to search through shitloads of "hurr watch me overreact on my facecam" videos and this was the first one to pop up without one.
>2 spooky skeletons is actually one of my favorite memes
Me too. Skeletons are seriously my favorite thing to come out of /x/ or 4chan in general
I don't man, I remember them all
nobody posted the BEST of all time yet, or am I just blind
Here's download link for the entire comic if anyone want it
Thanks to threads like this skeletons are ruined for me.
It doesn't matter how well the game makes a scary atmosphere for a graveyard/crypt/whatever, the moment there are skeletons, that fucking song about spooky skeletons comes to my mind and it cracks me up.
The Spooky Skeleton thing made me want to find more games where you play as skeletons.
This skeleton comes out of a painting and hunts you. When he gets to you there are sounds of ripped flesh and shit. When you get to a mirror you see that the skeleton took home in your body. I plan to make him come out at some unexpected moment.
Give me more bony ideas
So I'm a writer, nothing big, but enough to be the editor of a local literary magazine. I want to write a story. Bounce some ideas my way about what you'd like in a story about skeletons.
Oh shit. I had to take a break because of college but I'm still working on the fucking intro to the game. I'm getting there though. This is the protag's room.
Skeleton Lolis seducing the local populace
scary for my enemies perhaps
I'm not, currently. All the passion for skeletons has just created an urge to do so. So any ideas are welcome.
I'm thinking about a man who gets bitten by a skeleton one night and becomes a wereskeleton currently.
Thanks, I really hope the graphics won't put people off (that room pic has the wall textures all fucked it's not like that everywhere).
I'll probably end up making a kickstarter when i'll have enough content to guarantee some kind of beta I'll give to backers.
It's little comments like that that give me hope to make it into something worth playing. Thanks guys.
datea skeleton and let him suck some of your energy periodically?
Turns to a skeleton during the new moon.
Flesh falls off his bones, rotting where it lands, he goes out and does wereskeleton things, comes back home and regenerates organs, flesh, etc. Always much skinnier and ravenously hungry once he changes back (thanks, hungry skeleton).
If a horror story, he eventually is worked into a situation where the only thing he can eat if he is to survive is his own prior rotting flesh. He may do it, he may not. Options are there.
Bites other people. Skeleton army. Bites corpses, more skeleton soldiers. Funeral homes are basically skeleton fields, they get bitten, rise up, flesh falling away.
Skeletons and general undead are fantastic. Shame most games don't let you use them, or have some sort of restriction on them
>Skeletons, and ghosts can only be basic classes!
It's 2014, and I wish this VITALIST mindset would just die down.
Like this one?
he is the hardest character to learn so far, so most people do not use him. you need to plan ahead and abuse his skulls and traping. here is the best spinal player
Okay, I don't know if anyone uses Ren'py, but I'm having trouble with coding flags. Can I not have two different flag variables be active?
>skellington inside of me.
You're just kidding, r-right?
Dark Souls (And 2)
Skeletons are consistently fucking annoying from start to finish
Sorry if you're one of those people who baselessly hates Souls games for the sake of it, but they definitely have competent Skeletons in many shapes and sizes
Would you be okay with that happening to you?
It happens to us all eventually. We just have to prepare for it.
