Would it be cooler if you could have out the giants knife and the master sword at the same time, you wouldnt be able to use your sheild but thats ok, you have to swords. Take a vote on if it's a good idea, having two swords out at once.
It would be cool to have two swords out at once, but you couldn't have a shield. Sometimes shields are required for some things.. It would have to be the situation you were in, sometimes it would be kewl, sometimes it wouldn't cuz you would get your ass kicked by something you needed protecting from lol
Yeah.. But like I said you could have both available to you if you wanted, which would be cool. In some situations you may have the upperhand with 2 swords, and in others you may lead to your doom without a mirror or hylian shield.. It would be cool if you could combo though O.O
It does make sense, and as noted, I'm kinda riding on the line on this one, heh. Part of the issue is the irrational distaste for poorly balancing weapons of the same time. In KOTOR, for example, I always feel as if I'm crippling a character for giving them one normal lightsaber, and one short one. Now how would we balance the Master Sword?
But yeah, that's irrational, and a very personal reason.
One thing I'd worry about is that whatever way one spins it, to put two swords to use, greater co-ordination will be expected of the gamer. If it's still just lock-and-tap, it'd be nothing more than cool viewing and whatever damage bonuses come as a result.
In the worst case scenario it could mean quite a bit more co-ordination. It's not something I'd mind necessarily, but with target locking and (predating OoT) wide slash angles, the Zelda games have generally been low in the dexterity requirements they place on the gamer. It could be fun, but I could see it alienating some fans in the same way that overhead-shooters and fast-paced action games put people off.
But again, that's just me, and I'm reading into the worst case scenario.
well i think it would be cool... and besides, you could include swordplay so you could block with the sword too, and when you need to deflect light or something you can sheathe the sword and use the mirror shield, lolz.
It is true and all, about you being vulnerable, but like e_lert said, you could use one sword to block enemy attacks, and the other to kill the enemies. I am thinking about using Double Swords at one point on my fan game, but i don't have so many ideas of attacks for two weapons, if you could list some strikes with Double Swords, that would be really helpful.
