Batteries are made from from one chemical acting as cathode and one acting as anode, which means there are no circuits in them which in turn would make it EMP proof, and still would be able to "zap" your brain, and not to mention that even using one would mean putting out entire tokyo in one blast lol.

Except if the EMP does work, forcibly disconnecting the player(s) in any way, i.e. without the proper logout sequences that an EMP would prevent as surely as simply pulling the helmet off, will kill them.

Also, that microwave that burns out the player's brain? It IS an EMP.

To save the players, we had to kill them... Yeah, that'll go along well.

So has anyone ever played an RPG in their lives WITHOUT dying?

Let alone an MMORPG

I heard diablo('s) have mode where your character will be deleted if you die, not sure as I have never played those games.

True, but I think that if players knew they were playing with their own lives on the line, they would tend to be much more cautious in MMORPG's. And so while it's likely that no one has ever played an MMORPG without dying before in real life, it's certainly possible as long as one is extra cautious.

Even if one is extra cautious going up against bosses whose skills are unknown the 1st time and without any tactics is quite a tall order even if you knew you were playing with your life.

I've actually managed to do that. (not die)

Granted, it was Super Robot Wars OG2, and I'd cheated my way to a number of good items, and relied on sticking Real Man Team Dad Badass Normal God of Gespenst Kai Kitamura where the enemies were the strongest, and then laughing away as every enemy with a cunning plan got Gespenst Kicked or Jet Magnum'ed for their troubles.

Actually, all this reminds me of when I was playing Mass Effect 3 multiplayer. Lowe Gear can attest: the first time I tried Hydra Cerberus Bronze , I was repeatedly dying right left and center. Now I can solo Bronze Cerberus and Geth. Silver is tough but no problem, and I can actually handle White Geth Gold.

(Well, so long as I haven't been watching a delightful episode of Moeretsu Pirates. Seeing DAT MARIKA and DEM LEGS and DAT SPACE SUIT tends to throw me off my game. )

Hell, consider D-Day. Massive casualties, which then decreased as the US troops leveled up and gained XP.

I can't say anything in regards to this because it might be considered a spoiler, but this point will be addressed later on in the anime.

Yep. It's called hardcore mode. If you die in a hardcore mode game in Diablo (I, II or III), you lose that character forever.

Does anyone think it WILL eventually be possible? 3D is completely mainstream now....we have holograms and high tech stuff. I wonder how far off we are from VR?

The ones that had it worst were the 213 that had meddling family and pulled the Nerve Gear of their heads. It's like having your helicopter shot down when you were all psyched to parachute down and fight decepticons.

I had a friend who actually got a very high level in D2 hardcore. His journey ended when he left a town one day and an Amazon suddenly attacked him with homing arrows from past where his monitor even showed. He died before he could make it back into town and was so pissed he quit the game.

Kirito wasn't drawn like the light novel, or even how i expected it to be
but so far the voice actors are almost EXACTLY how i imagined it
and during the ED looks like they drew Asuna perfectly (imho)

I would instead use as an analogy having your amphibious transport blown up by a rocket in the Normandy Landings before you even make it to the beach.

Possible if you're

-Ridiculously cautious
-Over level
-Know boss tactics down to a T.

Often all of the above.

Can you imagine what it must be like to actively try to clear each floor? Theres no wiki to help you, you're going in completely in the dark and have no idea what to expect.

Remember for MMOs like WoW, in order to update the wiki, someone had to explore the area(s), someone had to test what each ability does and what is optimal, and someone have to be the ones to fight the bosses, and they learn what to do; one death at a time.

Yes that's the thing, the characters here don't have the luxury of your 3rd point or final paragraph.
