Crapshoot: Hellboy 14%


From 2010 to 2014 Richard Cobbett Crapshoot, wrote a column about rolling the dice to bring random, mysterious games back to light. And you know what this week is? It’s the long-awaited 100th Crapshoot! (A streamer shoots a cheap party in the air, eating one festive biscuit.)

yes one a hundred Crabshots. One Hundred Sabbaths filled with too many words about crazy horrorAnd the Inexplicable educational entertainmentAnd the horrific pornAnd the random music breaksAnd the Occasionally a lighthearted rowingAnd oh, so much more than that. It’s the PC gaming column spitting on “tl;dr”, which has been said to be “how can anyone Drone for a long time around Bloodrayne 3?! “

Obviously, this is a very special occasion for fans of decimals and random landmarks. But how do I define it? And How else? Let’s dive into one of the most infamous fail computers, the sucking abyss… Hellboy! Hmmm. Perhaps that would have been more dramatic if you hadn’t already seen the title.

The myth of Hellboy began long before its release, and the Guillermo del Toro movie that brought Hellboy back to a wider audience in 2004. In case you didn’t know, the gist is that he was a demon who was summoned from Hell as a child by Nazi occultists, before he was… His upbringing by a gentle professor found a middle ground of parenting by raising him as a normal kid but still called “Hellboy”. I haven’t read any of the comics, so I might be wrong here, but I suppose this was basically to stop any embarrassment in case another demon had to refer to him by his full title as “World Destroyer, Great Beast, Right Hand of Death, Son of the Fallen and Brian”.

Fully grown, Hellboy currently works in the Paranormal Research and Defense office, and I’m pretty sure he was hastily thrown together when Professor BPRD accidentally said in a meeting and had to quickly cover it up. There he fights alongside other friendly freaks, saves the world so much he is no doubt proud to be played on screen by Ron Perlman.

You thought all this would be perfect for the game. In the right hand, it could be. Unfortunately, Hellboy’s license fell into the hands of a company called Cryo Interactive, which appears to exist mostly to torture adventure game reviewers. Their final demise was brought back for commercial reasons, but I insist It was To include some kind of stake in the heart. Silver. Made of 30 cursed pieces paid to Judas, a virgin unicorn pissed on it under a full moon and carved into toothed spirals.
