He's nice once you get to know him

Capcom wasn’t joking when it cited Shadow of the Colossus as an inspiration for Dragon’s Dogma. Indeed, this new trailer for the action RPG shows a group of warriors battling a Drake – a kind of mini dragon – in midair.

The trailer got us thinking: is it wise to stab and fatally wound something you’re flying upon? Isn’t there a chance that you could, y’know, plummet to your doom when the injured animal inevitably crashes back down to the ground?

Are we over thinking this?
