ITT : Favourite vidya swords
Love how Nightmare swings this bad boy around like it weighs nothing at all
Masamune 2 - Buster Sword 1
Favorite vidya sword. That's a goddamn tough one.
No, wait, FF6 Ragnarok.
This bad boy.
>sexy yet realistic
>viable and strong without being BSS-tier shittery
>even lets you buff it/rub resins on it
Is there anything this sexy beast can't do?
Border line just a clump of metal
but Square/rectangular swords are cool
Everything this nigga did, Vergil did it first and better.
I'm a fan of vigil and his magic floating psyblades.
Whoops, wrong webm showcasing Virgil Blades.
The weapon itself doesn't lock, none of them do, it's the will to use them that locks, try and pull the tigger, and the nanomachines will stop your nerves from getting that signal, idk ask drebin.
Sentient swords are my jam and this one takes the cake in design and backstory.
Plus it's my favorite series in vidya. RIP.
Ever wanted to hit the enemy with the blunt end of your sword, but still wanted to poke him with shit?
Bam, rivets. Just jam a bunch of fucking rivets in that thing, blunt damage the shit outta stuff.
This idea was so retarded and awesome.
Like, maybe if there were someone else to use the broken apart swords but really, what the fuck practical use did it have for Cloud on his own?
Watch the movie; he's a fucking blade wizard with them.
Do games based on movies count? I mean, the melee combat was so good it inspired a genre.
He generally wields two at a time, and slowly adds swords to the core blade as shit gets more and more hardcore.
I think it was just Cloud getting tired of carrying all these fucking swords everywhere and just wanted a bunch of swords for various functions that fit on his motorcycle and form the Buster Sword in situations where he really needs to fucking rumble.
What -I- don't understand is why he needs all those swords as a delivery boy. I can understand monster hunter but what's he need an entire stockpile of weapons for anymore?
Hes a delivery boy on gaea
That planet is fucking crawling with all sorts of monsters.
And he was researching a cure for denzels geostigma so who knows he mightve had to go all over the place
Christ, if you replaced all the thousand folds weaboo swords ITT into massive dicks it would make you look less faggot than now.
Goddamn those were some cool games.
Everything about diablo 2 was so great.
Vergils boypussy would get wrecked, sorry
Also Noctis was a character seen doing all that since before Vergils first playable appearance, not to mention he's faster, can actually teleport far distances and has far better skill
Vergil also only uses swords, Noctis uses every single weapon too
really depends on what it's made of. Aluminium can be cut to be sharp and durable, and he's supposed to be a lot stronger than normal.
hell, even man-at arms made a full-size buster sword of...I think steel, and they could lift it just fine.
There were only two good thigs about Crisis Core. The music and this guy's sword.
Except Noctis can summon every weapon, has the power to summon the gods ie the summons in his world, can literally teleport, deflect weapons from swords to guns with his phantom swords, teleport with his sword by throwing it into his target, we've seen him break necks with his legs, and is skilled in wielding every single weapon with expertise knowledge as well as magical spells, and he can parry a Titan which no other FF protag has done, and not even Vergil could do
As far as FF protags go in the mainline games Noctis is the second strongest only after Terra who is a literal half summon
Vergil just uses swords and has energy blades, that's all he can do, Noctis would wreck him hard
>Also Noctis was a character seen doing all that since before Vergils first playable appearance
I'm sorry, what?
>not to mention he's faster
We have NO way of knowing if he's faster, and as it stands, Vergil is probably the faster of the two anyway, judging how Noctis appears to be basically human aside from his magical powers and being able to wield some heavy weapons. And they can both teleport anyway.
>and has far better skill
Kek, with the way he seems to just swing his swords around like he has no real formal training with them? The fuck he does, m8. Meanwhile, Vergil is an instant master of practically any weapon he picks up.
Like everything in that webm and what you mentioned, Vergil can do as well, aside from summon godlike beings. And even then, it's not like Vergil isn't powerful enough to take on Noctis' summons anyway.
But whatever, power levels are fucking stupid and you're an obvious FF fanboy.
>We have NO way of knowing if he's faster,
We do because Noctis can teleport faster and greater distances than Vergil plus we can see he is faster from every footage of him.
Noctis has bloodline magic in his blood, he has the blood with access to crystal magic granted by the gods which makes him not typically human, the sheer fact that Noctis has actual time/space manipulation for his warping makes him faster than Vergil who just moves fast that it looks like he's teleporting
>with the way he seems to just swing his swords around like he has no real formal training with them?
Except he swings them like he has expert knowledge of how to swing them, look at how he swings his swords like the blood sword or engine sword, his daggers, his lances like the wyvern lance or partisan, his aerial combat, his great swords like with the zweihander etc, he has expertise in how to use all weapons because he is a literal weapon summoner, Vergil uses only swords
> Vergil can do as well,
Vergil can't deflect bullets, spells or weapons with his swords, he doesn't have magical defending swords, he can't teleport by throwing his sword, he can't summon monsters, he can't warp far distances, he can't summon different physical swords into existence, his spinning sword powers are pure energy and not physically there like Noctis's are, Noctis has actual swords spinning around him that he materializes into thin air, and he can summon not just swords but any weapon from swords, katana, great sword, short sword, lances, axes, daggers, polearms, guns, boomerangs etc
Vergil can only use his swords, he also just moves fast, not actually teleporting like Noctis does, Noctis is manipulating time and space with his warping powers and he is a weapon master expert in their use, as well as well versed in magic spells and summon magic
It's not even a contest, Vergil would get raped by Noctis
Noctis's whole combat philosophy relies on his weapon switching and teleporting; apart from that, his swordsmanship is sloppy, his movements are sluggish, and his strength is sub-par by even ff standards.
Not to mention, y'know, Demon-human hybrids being able to survive obscene amounts of normally fatal injuries.
Poison alone makes it worth going through tentacle rape.
>15+ short range weapons
His power level seems to put him above every single FF protag except for Lightning in LR, where Toriyama went full retard.
Not him, but he's only slow when handling absurdly huge weapons. The demo also has him at a very low level, which generally don't reflect the real strength of a RPG protag.
The Soul Reaver is the best god damn sword ever.
>Big as fuck
>Enemies explode into a gory mess upon contact
>It screeches as it swings through the air
i really liked the transmog
also a nice bonus for getting scarab lord
You are actually wrong with several points buddy.
>Vergil uses only swords
What is Beowulf? Honestly the only reason why we've only seen him use swords is because he probably just prefers to use them. We see Dante use whatever many times, and by the point of DMC3:SE, Dante and Vergil were roughly on the same level, with the slight edge going to Vergil. Shit, when Vergil actually used a gun in DMC3:SE, he was able to pull off a charge shot just like Dante could.
We KNOW that Vergil is also an expert at hand2hand and that as son of Sparda, one of the most powerful demons who ever lived, he's basically incredibly superhuman. Let's be real, if Vergil decided to use any other sort of weapon, he'd be a beast at it.
>Vergil can't deflect bullets...or weapons with his swords
Uhhh yes he can? He literally does just that in his boss battles in DMC3. Did you even play that game?
>he doesn't have magical defending swords
Summoned Swords have multiple applications, INCLUDING defense.
>he can't teleport by throwing his sword
Kek, first of all, that is hardly a point against him, and in fact, that is something that's actually highly in his favor, since he can just teleport whenever the fuck he wants. Also in DMC4:SE, he does just that since you can't teleport to an enemy without first implanting them with a Summoned Sword.
>as well as well versed in magic spells and summon magic
And these are the only things that Noctis really has over Vergil, and it's not like Vergil couldn't overcome those odds anyway.
FFXV hasn't come out yet but it's safe to say that by the end of the game, Noctis will be pretty damn powerful, but it's much closer than you think dude. I don't think you know how much of a beast Vergil is.
I enjoy both X series and Zero series Z-sabers. The bendy, wavy nature of it from X2-X5 is super cool, not sure why they went with a boring standard solid lightsaber for X6 though.
I havent played MGR yet. Why does the sword have a gun clip?
Objectively best sword.
Every time you make contact with an opponent, the weight of what you hit doubles. Even one hit would throw off the balance of their weapons, more would make them too heavy to wield.
Despite its strange design, nothing beats it.
Somewhat vidya due to the upcoming game (which looks like shit) but I do love this sword. One of the only good weapons that gives pretty interesting fights in this somewhat poop series.
The guy who wields it, Jetstream Sam, is an Iaijutsu/Iaido user, meaning he's adept at using a sort of 'quick-draw' technique. Thing is, he heavily modified his grandfather's sword, installing a system using parts of a gun where he can pull the trigger of the sheath, which causes the sword to whip out extremely fast, using that to improve his own technique.
The clip is there just to look cool pretty much.
