Nei's weapons, really bars ?

Postby Nate556 » Wed Jan 14, 2009 11:10 am

I don't mean the really powerful ones at the end of the game, but the "bars" you buy for Nei to use. Is there something wrong with the translation, because when she attacks, they look more like claws. Did some genius in Sega change it or something ? All the art has Nei using claws, and never once have I seen a drawing of her holding bars as weapons. So, did they change claw to bar in the American release ?

Good point

Good point. I've always connected bars to claws so it doesn't sound very odd to me.
Since I'm not expert on english language, maybe someone else can explain this "bar" word? Expect that it's a synonym for a pub. ;)

A bar is generally a small round and narrow piece of metal. Like, the monkey-bars. They do come in other shapes and sized. Like, a handle-bar on a brief case is U shaped, and not made of metal. And a bar of gold is square. But the kind of bars you use in fighting, think of a solid-steel pipe about 1-2 feet long and about as narrow as your thumb.

So, when I think bar, I am thinking of a striking/smashing object, not a slicing claw.
So what is your first language ? I notice a lot of people here seem to have other languages as a first. The only other language I can speak is a Native-American language that died out about 150 years ago. I also know a little japanese, but not enough to do anything with. I've been thinking about getting programs to learn both Hebrew and Japanese, but so far, I've not put any effort into it. I think I will make another topic about this!

Yes, but cannot a row of knives be mounted (welded) on a bar to make a claw like device?

Think of a crow-bar. Claw-like, yes? Case closed.
