Quote from red255
swords are stupidly useful in anime, Swords can cut bullets, swords can cut planes.
guns are worthless as nobody can aim, beams CAN hit the target if they aren't blocked or evaded.
but the only thing that can stop a sword (or beam sword) is another sword.
You know, this rant is silly for a single reason. Everything in the first paragraph can be applied to absolutely everything that happens to inhabit similar space in regards to realism. Bare hands can do all of that, as can loud noises and supercharged breasts. Swords are just another set of means of physical combat in this instance.
Plus really. You want more believable, useful weapons and you mention scythes? A scythe is a farming implement with almost no practical applicability as an actual weapon. It has no place as a weapon unless the setting is massively unrealistic and/or it has magic powers up the ass.
Swords are nice, nice guns are nice. But really... give me something like the B.L.A.D.E in Vanquish. Thrown in the armor too, cuz I want that as well.
