What's the new design of lightsaber of videogames?
>>
Shit, thanks for reminding me about the new SW trailer, I completely forgot they were releasing it today. Good stuff.
>>
>they finally get red lightsabers right

>the blade is finally jagged, rough and chaotic due to the synthetic red crystal typically used in Sith blades

>then they go maximum tard and make a fucking "light hilt" which would make practical use of the fucking blade damn near impossible

BRAVO NOLAN
>>
>>273654137
I think the idea is to protect the hand like a normal crossguard. Still retarded though.
>>
>>273654137
The hilt is just for the added edge, if you catch my drift. Even the sith knows its utterly useless for anything else than looking cool, so the lightsaber have seperate controls for the blade and guard. He will turn the shit off when he fights seriously.
>>
>>273654260
The handle part can easily just get cut off after the blade deflects other sabers
>>
Here's an idea:

Lightsaber tonfas.
>>
>>273654137
You're forgetting star wars if for kiddies, and that lightsaber appeals to them.
>>
>>273654137
They had the color right from the get-go. This "longsaber" with the crossguard is fucking shit. Just because Sith crystals are unstable doesn't mean the looping field needs to be jaggy, in fact they're considered unstable because their artificially produced unlike the natural crystals Jedi use.

Dumb.
>>
>>273653254
Jeez, people will get buttmad over everything
>>
>>273654842
Dude the saber being all jaggy is symbolic, the Sith are all crazy and liberal and shit, while the Jedi are calm and collected.

It's like poetry.
>>
>>273655135
plus its red just like the color of my limitless RAAAAAAGE

>that lightsaber beam looked diferent, almost unstable. is it possible the "hilts" were some kind of exhaust ports for a stronger kind of lightsaber?
>>

>>the blade is finally jagged, rough and chaotic due to the synthetic red crystal typically used in Sith blades

That's just some shit they came up with in EU. Doesn't matter.

That never happened in EU

>That fucking HORRENDOUS CGI for the Falcon scene

WHY.
>>
I think the design is great, it looks practical and already tells me that JJ Abrams is caring well for the universe by reverting back to how the force was presented in the old films: Subtle ways of using it, and in battle it acted more of an extra arm rather then a thing that could blow up shit.

The sword itself with the hilt and all is a callback to old sword designs.
>>
>>273657341
Dooku's was best, faggot.
>>
>>273659835
>it looks practical
Except it's the exact opposite if you know literally anything about swords.
>>
>>273653254

is this real?
>>
>>273657341
>>
You fucking fuckers will complaing about anything.

Maybe he uses his lightsaber like a normal sword instead of swinging it around like an autist?

Maybe it isn't a hilt guard, but an exhaust vent due to it being extra-powerful or inexpertly made with synthetic crystals

Maybe it is there so your fingers don't get cut the fuck off mid battle, dumbfucks

>lol but I coold jus cut it off huehuehue

Really? You will alter to fighting style to attempt to MAYBE successfully cut the hilt off, and then what? HAHA now I have a /normal/ lightsaber. You really got me.

Maybe it is made from Cortosis. Didn't think of that, did you?
Try and cut it, you saber malfunctions and you're fucking fucked m8.
>>
>>273659691
I thought the Wing scene was worse.
>>
>>273659985
Elaborate.
>>
>>273659691
what are you talking about? It wasn't bad?
>>
>>273657341
This seems smart
Are lightsabers heavy? Do they need momentum to cut through things? I'd be afraid of just brushing against it and deskinning my arm or something
>>
>>273659985
>Except it's the exact opposite if you know literally anything about swords.

You mean like most real swords?
>>
>>273660374
Do you have severe cataracts or something? It was worse than the god awful Hobbit shit.

What's the topic I want to discuss tertiary to videogames of videogames?
>>
The desert looked weird and unnatural.
>>
My problem with the trailer was the cinematography. Shaky cam and Depth of Field out the ass. Looks too much like J.J.'s Trek movies
>>
Just put a real metal guard behind the saber part
>>
>>273660452
The amount of retardation and irony in this post is astounding.

I really, really hope you're just trying to troll me. In the case that you're somehow this profoundly stupid, a hilt on an actual sword isn't made of light that will sever your fucking hand.
>>
>>273660452
You don't want your crossguard to be able to chop off yours fingers, bro.
>>
>Ctrl+F
>Gunblade
>0 Results

Why?
>>
>>273660628
Or rather that metal which I forget the name of that resists being cut by a lightsaber.
>>
Sonic Boom
>>
>>273660628
How would that block the opponent's lightsaber blade?
>>
>>273660452
Way to prove his point completely.
>>
>>273660628
wouldnt it just be cut off by another light saber
>>
>>273660772
There'd be the saber in front to block it.

Get a load of this moron.
>>
>>273660772
there are some metals that can withstand lightsabers i imagine, atleast enough to deflect or parry a few swings of a lightsaber
>>
The hilt should be made of Cortosis
>>
>>273660243
>Trying to argue with /v/
>>
>>273660772
>>273660807
There is a metal in the SW universe that stops lightsabers.
>>
>>273654463
Can lightsabers even cut other lightsaber's handle ? I don't see why not but the handle are always pretty near the saber itself.
>>
>>273660759
We have a winner.
>>
>>273660452
There is a reason why crossguards weren't made out of blades.
They were used to protect your fingers and to give you extra thrusting power so your hand wouldn't slide towards your blade.

The JJ saber would make sense if the crossguard was made out of some lightsaber resistant material, not just some lasers glued on it.
>>
wasnt there also a chick with a lightsaber in a style of a whip?
>>
>>273660772
>>273660807
I think he means putting a metal guard on the finger side. The metal guard side would prevent the user's fingers from touching the lightsaber guard, while the lightsaber guard side would block other lightsabers,
