8 Video Games You Didn't Realise Stupidly Broke Their Own Rules

Keeping track of a video game mythology is hard. Like really, impossibly hard. Harder than a film or book, and why? Because the average game runtime stretches into the tens of hours - sometimes even hundreds.

It doesn't hurt to change hairstyle.
Author doesn't give a reason why not

Yea the author is assuming hair is holographic. Why?

He explains in the article:

"Android "hair" doesn't exist, and is instead some sort of holographic projection. Even android skin colour changes and disappears, as is shown in both Connor and Markus' storylines when they "mind meld" with NPCs, and when Kara and Alice are reduced to their factory white shell forms at the close of the game.

We literally see Kara "turn off" her skin and hair, despite the earlier scene."

Yes I saw that. However it doesn't mean hair is holographic. Neither is the skin. They cant even change skin colour like the author assumes. They just apparently show more factory basic design. A bit like a car with no paint and no options. . I know there's no logical explanation as to how they make those changes but neither is there much science about the whole android technology. I'm very open to SF genre and sometimes you just have to take what they give you as a fact because you just can't possibly give an explanation with our current science.
For that matter many parts show hair is as realistic as possible in many instances before Kara makes it disappear.

Yeah, I'm not sure. I mean, it's a small thing to complain about. Not game breaking by any means. But I'd probably agree with the author that the ability to turn the hair on or off means that it wouldn't need to be cut, per se. It can probably be altered with programming.

I haven't played the game though, so I'm a bit clueless. Thinking of picking it up on the next sale. The demo was great!

Here’s one I just thought of about Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories. Twilight Town is treating as foreign because Sora has never been there, and therefore has no memories of the place for the Twilight Town world card to draw from. While this is true, this seemingly ignores the fact that every time the party enters a new floor, they act as if they've never been to that world.

Whatculture eh? Their wrestling opinions are quite valid but everything else is painfully out of touch.

"Can you name ANY Star Wars game where decapitations or limb-slicing is a thing?"
Yes, I can. With one simple comand. And that was main reason why Jedi Knight II - Jedi Outcast was so amazing. Lightsabers were really lightsabers.
