well, i was watching the demo that Jade and her friend does at X06, and i notice that when he kills the mark, it's a cutscene. So my question is: will we just have to run up to them, and it'll do it automatically, or will we get a choice of how to kill the marks?

Hmmm good question. I seem to remember something about new assassination moves being downloadable content, so I'm guessing you have like multiple ones to chose from, but you can only pick from the list. I really dont know though.

I think you will find that it is not a cutscene, the camera angle just ajusts to see the assassination from the front
and you do get to choose how you kill the mark (hopefully), im pretty sure that you can approach the assassination however you like, and i doubt that it will be the same sort of action for every kill

of course it wont, if you decide to go from the front killing everyone instead of sneaking behind, of course you wont knock the victim to his knees from behind and then stab him to the neck ( if youre infront of him... )

what i meant was, i don't think that he would kill them the same way every time you come from the same directon. he asked if it would do it automatically, and i was just trying to put it into perspective

What i think is that when you progress through the game, u get multiple ways of doin it, i think that it may be like a button combination, and definitely not a cut scene

Yea it looked like just a change of camera angle and some slow-down effects, same kind of thing it looks like will be interspersed throughout normal combat for effect. My guess is you do a button combination and then when your character is actually doing the maneuver, the camera changes and the slow-down and other effects happen.

Probably you can't kill him with your crossbow, because you need a feather with the blood of that guy to get your mission completed. And how would you get that blood from a rooftop?

well you could kill the target and his guards with crossbow, and then go to his body.

if you ask me, i think the crossbow is gonna have some weird twist to it. cuz it seems a little too easy to kill with the crossbow.

at least that's my opinion. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

i think the crossbow might have VERY limited ammo.

OR, they could make it historically accurate and not allow it..

maybe later going to wath tv now! but the basic line is the real assassins ( nizaris ) didnt use bows or crossbows, they killed with daggers to cause fear

I kinda hope that they rule out the crossbow for killing the main guys, guards im fine with, but it just doesn't look very cinematic watching someone shoot a crossbow. Unless u shoot like a rope or something and something heavy or sharp falls on the guy. That's be cool

It may be weird with the crossbow, cuz u could like stand on top of a building, and like snipe him in the head, no one would know it was you, theyd just stop what theyre doin and go" What the hell, did a bird just drop a crossbow bolt or somethin?"

chlosser, at that time a flying arrow ws like a bomb.

do you see people looking up at the sky for a bird that dropped a bomb??

yeah moqqy is right, using the knife is sort of ritualistic and would probaly be a way of letting everyone know you did it. (like a trademark)

07-01-2007, 10:36 AM
now that we overuled crossbows, what do you guys think, will we be able to use a sword or knife to assassinate just as well as our hidden blade??

i can probably guess the answer im gonna get, but you never know...

07-01-2007, 04:20 PM
Ahhh, iunno bout that. If u were to use a sword, it may not be so much of an assasination more than a slaughter....unless u like slit their throat? Iunno, the knife maybe, probably, but, if u ask me, im gonna stick to the blade on the wrist...and my crossbow bolt dropping birdhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

why wouldnt it be an assassination using sword

altair kills the guy then he goes to the base.. the leader says : NO YOU GOT TO KILL THE DUDE YOU KILLED AGAIN YOUR BLADE WAS TWO INCHES TOO BIG

Well, Obviously he wouldnt go around saying that u cant kill people with a sword, u probably can, im just saying, lol. Its more of a slaughter than an assasination, its like trying to have a sword fight in a huge war with a little hunting knife, doenst really go with the scenario....but would be very interesting....

According to historical references, the Assassin's Clan which Altair apparently belongs to in this game, preferred the use of daggers above all else in their assassinations.

Not what she said...sorry it was a perfect time.

I hope that the hidden blade is used for the assassinations rather then a sword and defiantly not the crossbow. That hidden dagger is so kick a$$ http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Try to get close to your target with a big sword in your hand. You'll be attacked by the guards before you can even get close. The guards don't see your hidden dagger, so it's easier to get close. They see you have a sword, but there is the social-stealth for.

ScytheOfGrim
07-02-2007, 07:23 AM
of course.

but maybe like in the mark of kri, dunno if you know the game, but if i remember right, you do stealth skills while your sword is sheathed, meaning that you unsheath at the second you need to attack.

but your right, if the games realistic, that wont happen, theres too much time difference between unsheathing and slashing...

sad, no tenchu style stealth kills...

but we've still got this happening switch-blade!!

TAKE THAT TENCHU!!!!!!!

Seeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!! Its less realistic for u to assinate someone with a sword!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif lol. And yeah, it would be better to just use your knife.....or your bird who drops crossbow bolts.

You never know. they may just do that for fun....ahh nevermind, no self respecting game creator except for ROCKSTAR,(There you go Scythehttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif) would put that into a game.

But i would use it if it were in there......

im sorry chlosser, you gotta edit that post.
