Hi Guys...!!!
i Just finished AC1. I noticed one thing, whole game story duration is 1 week, as Lucy tells Desmond that they have 1 week deadline to get the memory of Desmond's ancestors.
So during the whole week Desmond sleeps on his bed, awakes and then lay down in Animus, he doesn't eat or drink anything, while Doctor comes up with a cup of tea (or mug of coffee) to wake up Desmond. Is it not strange???

You're right. This was probably just an oversight, as him eating isn't as exciting as performing assassinations and learning of a conspiracy.

But still, what would happen to a man who didn't eat anything in a week? Desmond looks very active till end.........

In real life, he would die. In the game he doesn't eat because it's not exciting to sit there and watch a man eat a meal. You're just supposed to pretend he eats/makes bowel movements while you're not watching him.

Would you have liked to watch him use the toilet as well? Outside the Sims I don't think anyone enjoys watching their video game characters eat and drink. Especially in a game like AC.

Unless it has a narrative purpose it's pointless to show.

I got a big smile when i read this....http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif)

Well, i didn't want to see the main character going to toilet or eating and i have wait to finish his stuff.
There should be something which explain why he didn't eat anything......

Maybe the animus doubles as a toilet.
It could do that. Being all hi-tech and futuristic like.

Dear me. If every RPG concentrated on whether or not the main character ate and drank enough to stay alive then we would just have games of eating and drinking which would be a little bit boring in comparrison to exploring the Holyland 1190 in this games case, dont you think?

There is. It's called "thinking" and the reasons for us never seeing him eat or drink can be found in this thread (before your post, even)

Well, it should be like this....!!!

(Scene ::: Doctor comes into Desmond room with a mug of coffee in his hand. Desmond lays down on his bed)

Doc: Wake Up Mr.Miles. (Desmond sits on the bed)
Des: Hi Docs, whats up?
Doc:We got lot of work to do.
Des: Hye, i am hungry. I need to have breakfast.
Doc: We don't have time for this.
Des: Hey Docs, i need a large Pizza ,chicken cheez burger with tomato ketchup.
Doc: Come on, get on work. We don't care what do you want.
Des: What, hye Docs how would i be able to continue work in Animus?
Doc: No, Mr.Miles you are not allow to eat or drink until we finish it. (Doctor make a gesture with his hand)
Des: You People kidnapped me, imprison me here in the lab and enforce to be used by that frustrating machine you people call it Animus, and you are saying i am not allow to eat any thing. What the hell is going out here (Desmond shouts at Doctors).

(Doctor looks at Desmond with a bit surprise)
Doc: Mr.Miles you didn't understand. We have modified the Animus, you can longer remain in Animus without eating any thing.
Des: how is this possible?
Doc:This is another one of amazing technology the Abstergo has given to the World.
Des: Technology!!!
Doc: You didn' t realize that Mr.Miles, thousand of people are using this technology, and they are working day and night without eating or drinking. We have fitted it with Animus, so that it would help you.(Doctors smiles)
Des: So does it mean i wouldn't be able to eat Pizza, chicken burger?
Doc: No Mr.Miles.
Des: What if i need to go to toilet in Animus? (Desmond smiles)
Doc: Shut your mouth and Get in the Animus. (Docs shouts)

Pfff.. Desmond is nothing in this situation.
In ACII, if anyone else remembers, Lucy said that they kept Subject 16 in the animus FOR DAYS! :P

Does eating inside the animus counts ? just asking xD ..you dont have to see him eating ... what's the action in watching someone eating ...

Well, in books or movies, you rarely see people eat, unless it's to illustrate something. Desmond also never goes to the toilet. Eating was skipped out upon because it wasn't relevant to the story.

Btw . you missed something ... in Ac1 in desmond's room there were all those stuff ... a shower a toilet ... but they didnt let you use it just cuz it 's not a silly game .. its action ... assassin's ... you better think that they dont even wash their faces !

Yes, there are all stuff (toilet,shower etc)...
But i just wanted to say there shall be some explanation about not eating, just like i mention all in a fake dramatic scene in post above. Read my script dialogue between Desmond and Doctors, hope you enjoy it...http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I get your point ,but i think otherwise than putting the eating scene's they w'd rather add the 18+scene's ... wich is more reasonable to be add'd .. and u get to visit doctor's with ezio when ur in the animus :P

18+ scene??? why??? no need for this at all. They could explain why he didn't eat anything.....

Based on the fact the amount of toilet paper in the restroom keeps changing (they run through three rolls of toilet paper), I was assuming they just didn't bother to show eating or toiletries since it's not important to the story and didn't bother making graphics or animations for it.

>_> Hell, Desmond somehow sleeps with his shoes on and on-top of the blanket... *has some irrational obsession with keeping shoes the hell away from beds*

What the hell?? You counted??

As far as this post goes, I'm sure he ate, or he was fed...through the Animus somehow. It wasn't IV, we don't encounter those till the next game.

Most importantly though, it's not important. I would kill myself I had to watch Desmond eat at the rate that he moves around Abstergo.

But to be fair, even if he didn't eat for a week, he wouldn't die. Humans can live for weeks, even a few months without food. You feel like cr*p at first but your body adapts to just water http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Well, since there was that eavesdropping bit at the beginning, I looked in the restroom repeatedly and I noticed it.

The towels get ruffled too.

There is an old famous proverb (old sayings) that "Let the Dogs bark, the carvan is moving". So you are anger at this thread, i can understand when a man loses his mind then talks rubbish only.

You do realize that you CAN'T be anger.
Right?
Anger is the emotion. When you feel anger towards something you are... ???

That's right! you are angry!!!!

That's a similar mistake to your whole "Desmond lived alive" mistake.

So basically, uhm... check stuff before you post?

I took the liberty of editing the quote a bit to my liking. I mean I would have used different words but I think it's ok.

i think the first time we actually see him eat is in Ac bro, when he eats the burger/sandwitch, and the first time that using the bathroom was hinted at was when shaun got stuck with latrine(misspelled?) duty, besides the bathroom in Ac1

English is not my mother tongue, even it is not my national language. So what ever mistake i did in this thread I DO NOT CARE......But yes i do care of what i write in my national language to be free from any mistake. When i write any thing in English i only take care to make it such so that other can understand. And I see what i posted you people got it.

But i am surprise to see that you pointed out my spelling and grammar mistake and even you make small cap letter capital? i guess you are English teacher who doesn't like any mistake in english, but there are lot of threads where you may find many spelling, grammar or even whole word mistake, would you point out them??? well, you would tired....
