From magical farting unicorns to enormous foam finger hand cannons, ridiculous weapons have always made their way into our most favorite of games. Is this a bad thing? Well, it depends on your sense of humor. Do you enjoy killing necromorphs with your imagination? Or prefer to cast a "party" spell in a room full of prestigious knights? Either way, you'll need a weapon that requires the ability to tolerate the absolutely crazy and broken weapons that you will either love or hate. Let me start with a few of my favorites:
Mr. Toots (Red Faction: Armageddon)
The Foam Finger (Dead Space 2)
Every other weapon in Dead Rising
Bonus weapons (Soulcalibur 4)
Hal's rifle (Fable 2)
And I will continue this tomorrow with another post. smightnight and I are about to watch "Pulse". We have high hopes.
Hey all, this is the continued list of ridiculous weapons in video games...
Golf Club (Halo: Reach)
Scarab's gun (Halo 2)
and etc. Honestly, I enjoy these sort of weapons every now and again, but when used regularly, like in Dead Rising, the weapons lose their finesse. Then again, this is coming from the guy that enjoyed Dead Rising: Case Zero (an XBLA arcade title) more than Dead Rising 2 (The actual $60 game). I enjoy weapons such as these, but not when they are used in rapid succession and constantly. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to destroy buildings in Red Faction with the backside of a unicorn... I still can't get over that... haha.
