Have you ever dreamt of wielding Cloud’s Buster Sword from Final Fantasy VII? Now a working, sharp and massive real life version exists, but swinging it around could destroy your back.
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 :)
I'm not sure he's a gamer, but he definitely knows how to make his swords.
It was just a random thought while reading "Swordsmith and prop maker Tony Swatton loves to make weapons from movies, comics and games..." :)
@zod18: oh, yeah, i gotcha. I guess we can assume he games in some manner, yeah :D
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. @Abriael: Besides that they made a real one...? Also not making a complaint, just an observation.
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...
I think it is realistic because the blade is probably made with a super light weight fanstasy metal, like Mythril.
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.
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.
Impressive, but can it run Crysis?
But Crysis keeps getting killzowned, lol.
next weapon GunBlade Squall's ff8 sword
I'd love to see Tidus' water sword
Man...imagine the should strength needed to wield that bad boy...
Frostmourne hungers, i already have that sword. :P
he will sell it at a high price to a fanboy :)
Cool video, thats awesome
Take my money, all of it. I want one!
I would start gym up just to wield that bad boy. Edit: i would start up 2 gyms to dual wield that bad boy.
That's cool. It also reminds me of Pyrmid Head's sword.
