After nearly a month of anticipation, we finally get to see Kirito enter the cyberpunk world of Gun Gale Online!
Female Looking Kirito Is Best Girl?
As much as I’m relieved to know that Kirito didn’t get gender swapped (I have a thing against guys using girl avatars to take advantage of others), I have to admit that it’s a little awkward whenever he tries to act like a girl. It’s not like he’s doing a bad job but after listening to his inner monologue about it, watching him just fool Sinon feels wrong.
On the flipside, watching Kirito show up a bunch of big dudes under the pretense he’s a girl was definitely a pleasure to watch. Doing things that only he’s capable of doing, I can’t wait to see him in action during the Bullet of Bullets event. All that said, I’m nervously waiting for the moment when Sinon figures out Kirito isn’t a girl and everything falls apart. Or maybe she’ll just completely fall for him and join the league of girls that make up his harem? Who knows.
Bringing a Sword to a Gunfight
For those of you who’ve played Pre-Hat Market TF2, CS, or any other FPS that use melee weapons in some fashion — you must know about the crazy amount of pleasure you get when you take someone out with a short-range weapon, right? As much as I want to join the hate train behind Kirito using a Beam Sword in a competitive shooter, I can see why he’d want to play to his strengths. His gun skills are pretty terrible and if I had enough skill to dodge bullets at near point-blank range, I would also probably take on the challenge of bringing a sword to a gunfight. (Mind you, I’m just weird and try to make the games I play more challenging haha)
Also, you have to wonder why a Beam Sword costs so much! Maybe it’s because there’s not a huge demand for it but seeing how there isn’t a limited supply of weapons, there has to be some reason besides economics behind why the thing costs so much.
With the preliminaries for BoB right around the corner, I can’t wait to see what explosive action sequences are in-store for us. Based off of Kirito’s performance this week, I have high expectations for him! Be it in the arena or with Sinon, there are a lot of things I’m really looking forward to.
P.S. Watching Sinon go into gun-mania mode was super cute. I think I could watch a whole episode of her just talking about guns and all their intricacies.
