View Full Version : A Neat Idea

I haven't seen any games that have protagonists that weild high-tech swords that can download new data and become stronger. Do you think this would be a good idea?

why not? have fun with it... i haven't seen it either...

Ummm, have you seen the highlander or played Brave Fencer Musashi?

Sure, why not - make it with 802.11, though - ethernet would be sooooo lame.

Musashi absorbed scrolls and such with Lumina, and assimilated monster's abilities with Fusion. He never downloaded special data for his sword.

I like the idea alot, hell, I would even be willing to help you with the game :)

The idea itself is... vaguely concievable from a scientific viewpoint. However it has been done before to a small extent
Anyone remember Deus Ex? Where you go to Hong Kong and become recruited into a Triad and you have to recover the Dragon Tooth sword... ROM encodings etc? (Well actually the sword wasnt 'enhanced' but its similar to what you're getting at)
Nuff said.:D

Hm, seems farfetched, not that realistic even for 50 years in
the future.
