It must be so cool being a swordsmith and a passionate gamer in one. I'd have a nice collection of game weapons in my basement for sure :)

Abriael2164d ago

I'm not sure he's a gamer, but he definitely knows how to make his swords.

ZodTheRipper2164d ago

It was just a random thought while reading "Swordsmith and prop maker Tony Swatton loves to make weapons from movies, comics and games..." :)

Abriael2164d ago

@zod18: oh, yeah, i gotcha. I guess we can assume he games in some manner, yeah :D

CaptainCamper2164d ago

He's not a gamer. One of his video he says "I never play video games" but you can't argue with the end products. Great series of videos :D

And it has the weight/balancing issues that everyone complains about.

Besides that they made a real one...?

Also not making a complaint, just an observation.

Abriael2164d ago

But since it's a fantasy video game with no real pretense of being realistic, there's no real reason to complain.

It's almost like you're supposed to be a genetically enhanced super soldier to wield one...

Finalfantasykid2164d ago

I think it is realistic because the blade is probably made with a super light weight fanstasy metal, like Mythril.

Hydralysk2164d ago (Edited 2164d ago )

This is from a game where a woman can damage enemies by punching them hard enough that it summons a dolphin.

I agree that realism was not something ff7 concerned itself with.

Wish Square Enix would make official sword replicas...or even stuff like the Keyblades from Kingdom Hearts

I would buy a Gunblade though over the Buster blade, which basicaly looks like a massive butcher knife

You know how much money they could make with replicas.

rainslacker2164d ago

I wouldn't mind seeing this guy make a keyblade. It's pretty unique from a sword perspective. Some of his videos are pretty cool.

GreenRanger2164d ago

Impressive, but can it run Crysis?

Minato-Namikaze2164d ago

But Crysis keeps getting killzowned, lol.

next weapon GunBlade Squall's ff8 sword
