8 amazing video game weapons that killed you
As with any real weapon, the unholy pokers, slashers, and prodders that you can find in video games should always be handled with care, because even if you have enough firepower to turn a mountain into Swiss cheese, you’ll want to maybe make sure you are not accidentally within the blast radius.
It happens more than we want to admit, when our itchy trigger finger or some horrible inconvenience we didn’t anticipate causes us to hit the deck before our foe.
But you know what? This does not prevent the weapon in question from being truly and utterly awesome.
Sure, we’re six feet deep and we make our way to this big hotel in the sky, but the man talks about going out with a bang!
We will just remember that next time we will even want to honor the big “death ray” button, that we are more prepared and that we will stand a mile away next time.
Ah The Soul Edge, weapon of legend, power and ultimate disaster for those who oppose it. The stories of this mystical weapon stretch to the far corners of the world, attracting those who would seek to exercise its almighty power as well as those who seek to destroy it in equal measure.
Plus, it looks like an angry big middle finger has been crossed over with Resident Evil’s William Birkin, so that’s always a plus.
However, I think this all-powerful weapon should come with a user instruction manual, as I’m pretty sure that at some point every player who picked up this oversized letter opener became the prey to one of its most unpleasant attributes. You see, even if the weapon offers enough offense to level a block, it comes at the cost of a constant loss of stamina, and in any fighting game it’s never a good thing.
From dying to opponents exploiting the drain and hitting you for constant flea damage, to dodging and literally letting you fall on your own sword, The Soul Edge can truly be a nightmare as big as its previous wielder. Always when he hits, ooooo baby does he snap that brain matter on the other side of your opponent’s head.
