I just don't get how someone could complain about a plot point to a game or any other work of writing without actually knowing how said plot point is actually developed in the plot.

But he said it seems like that. Then the second paragraph there are full of questions. He wasn't just outright saying "The plot sucks for being about a stupid sword."

Xenoblade Chronicles doesn't even have HDMI support so LRXIII will be a lot better.

Why are you using a Wii to play Wii games?

I just think it's a little silly to judge prematurely like that.

Never played the game, but I didn't like how a plot point seems to be how the sword with the stupid name can't cut through robots with faces.

Is that a dramatic twist to the story? Was it originally believed that it could cut faces? How will they overcome this obstacle? Will the sword also gain facial powers? Why is the sword's one weakness faces? Wouldn't it have been better to design a sword that could cut faces? Maybe all enemies in the future will have faces, how will that go?


Firstly, you are in a topic about a game called Lightning Returns, who's main character is a adult female who changed her name to Lightning, and you call the name "Monado" stupid. Truly hilarious given it's a better name than many of the lead characters in the XIII saga (note I said leads, the villains got perfectly good names, but whoever thought calling people Hope, Snow, Lightning, and Fang was good should be fired, because those are names little immature kids would call themselves because they think it's cool).

Secondly, you talk about a plot point with the extreme and sheer ignorance of someone who hasn't played the game, and yet believe you have any actual right to call it stupid. Play it, maybe you'll realise the only stupid thing in your post was your questions, all of which are rendered pretty much obsolete by the answer to "why didn't they design it to cut faces", which is (major spoiler warning) THEY DIDN'T MAKE THE MONADO. And I'm only halfway through it, there is clearly far more left to be revealed (and unlike the s*** XIII saga I can rest assured it will actually be revealed by the narrative rather than in crappy Datalogs). There is also a very very good reason it couldn't cut faced Mechon I might add, and yes, that is explained (and again, in the actual game, unlike XIII).

If you're going to bash a game, play it, otherwise please just stfu. Stick to complaining about plot holes in games you've actually played.

This is the 2nd time in the topic you're using that, and I'd recommend you stop because you're only making yourself look like a fool.
