how do you guys think the sword will work?

#1__B__Posted 5/5/2012 2:11:07 PM
With the sword being a decent part of Zer0's gameplay. How do you think it will work?

I hope it's where you hit the melee button and that digistructs the sword and from there you can use the triggers ala dead island or skyrim(highly doubtful but would be sweet)

I'm just hopping its not like mordecai's knife where u just have the same bland animation over and over.

Inbetween those 2 extremes I'd be ok with too.

What do you guys think?

I can almost guarantee that it's going to be just pressing the melee button and doing the attack like everybody else where he differs is in his skill tree.

While cloaked he gets a boost to melee damage and then another skill grants melee damage bonus for a few seconds after attacking an enemy with a gun and then gun damage bonus after attacking with melee.

This is how I'm expecting the rest of zero's melee attributes to play out as well instead of having a separate melee system from the rest of the classes.

I would assume that as well.
I just feel its soo underwhelming for how powerful his melee is gonna be in game :(

Zerzero's melee will be as original as his own character.

I'm thinking it has longer range and less cool down, or you can "combo" it if you press the LS (or if you're a lefty, the RS).

His katana will probably emits sonic booms if you have points allocated to a certain skill, kind of like Sayuri's Charge Attack from Hard Corps: Uprising.

Not really sure how to react to that video.

The less offensive comment I can think of is all that training is pointless.
