Today’s Moment of Derp

I love Final Fantasy VII, it’s a great game. It is NOT the best of the series by a long shot, but you know…that’s like my opinion, man.

What I can’t stand are the rabid fanboys and fangirls that think that it’s the end-all-be-all of RPGs. These are the type of people who actually strive to look like Cloud Strife or Aerith (yes AERITH, not Aeris) Gainsborough and sometimes fail pretty hard at doing so. In the video above you’ll see what happens when people try to craft weapons to mimic ones used in fantasy…most notably Cloud’s Buster Sword.

The worst part about the weapon is the weight it seems, oh and the fact that it can’t cut through much of anything. I’m guessing they made the thing out of either iron or cheap grade steel which means the thing must weigh a good 40-50 pounds and is precariously balanced on a hilt that does nothing for ergonomics. I’m sorry, I don’t mean to dissect, but this thing is just retarded…and why it’s deserving of today’s moment of DERP.
