If Star Wars fans know one thing, it's that lightsabers are for cutting off arms. Limbs are always getting lopped off in the films. Threaten a Jedi with a gun and you'll likely earn a quick visit to the bacta tank and get a robo-hand grafted on for your trouble..
I keep seeing this story on all the news aggregate sites - I can’t figure out why? Do we have a lot of previous Star Wars games with dismemberment that this one is an outlyer? Do any Star Wars video games feature this?
Not just video games. Have you seen the last 2 Star Wars films? Lightsabers inflict light scratches as best. Absolutley the worst. Jedi Lightsaber went from being this awesome weapon that only a few could use in combat to a nerf sword that lights up.
Not talking spinoff films. I’m talking Star Wars TFA and TLJ. Both had saber fights where people get hit with sabers with very little damage done. Finn dies in TFA but somehow only get’s a back scratch. Kylo has his face chopped off, but only get’s a scratch. Check out Robert Head on Youtube and his Disney doesn’t understand how lightsabers work. He’s goes a little overboard, but he speaks the truth.
Videogames need to quit downplaying the impact of sharp objects and laser blades. It’s just going to lead to kids not respecting how much damage they can do. Next thing you know, some kid is going to accidentally cut another kid’s head off while they’re goofing around with battles axes or something.
At least laser swords are a dumb fantasy thing. What bothers me is the lack of dismemberment in Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey. No way Kassandra wouldn’t be lobbing off arms and legs with some of those moves and some of that hardware.
