Sorry if this has already been talked about but I really did look and didn't find anything.

In here (http://ps3.qj.net/uploads/articles_module/66932/AC1_qjpreviewth.jpg) and in the demo when Altair was in the sword fight, there were meters marking something. In the demo it was red and I assume that's for energy, but what do you guys think?

I would guess it works in the same kind of way as the eye did in Oblivion. The higher the meter is, the more seen you are, making it harder to escape. If it did change when doing some things, energy I would guess as well.

You mean if you let the autoblock take care of everything it'll run out and die if you counter using your own skills (timed button presses) you'll gain an advantage and kill someone without wasting the stamina bar

basically it's a health bar... except autoblocking is symbolizing getting hit because they don't want you to actually get hit it'll be a sloppy block and kind of feel like you're actually getting hit like in other games

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/agreepost.gif it is kinda a health bar, it is actually a bar that tells u how believable u are. i wont spoil the whole thing but u play a man's memory (Altair) and everytime u get hit the bar goes down (like a health bar) meaning the man is believing less and less that he was an assassin in 1191ad, but if u get hit less and complete more missions the bar will expand meaning the man is believing more and altair becomes stronger and faster. hope dat answers ya question. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

no because you're not going to get hit at all it's a stamina bar about how many autoblocks you can do before you finally die -_-

but if what you said is true please show a link to the proof

the bar i was on about is a confidence bar on how much the man believes that he was an assassin lik i said b4, heres part of the paragraph

Next up Ubisoft demonstrated the combat system, proving once and for all that a good defence is a great offence. Altair has a confidence and energy meter that is used to determine how many blocks and counters he can perform. As he blocks, dives out of the way and counters each enemy, the meter depletes and his actions become less effective.

ummmm wha?

all i see is the word confidence bar, this could be confidence in surviving the battle which could effect how fast his stamina bar depletes, the more enemies the less confident of victory, the less confidence of victory the faster his stamina bar depletes

thats a hell of a jump to say its confidence in how much of an assassin he thinks he is... he is reliving genetic memories from an ancestor yes ... so he doesnt have to be confident in how much he thinks he is an assassin he knowns he isnt ....

i cant prove it becasue its a guess, but so is yours and this explanations a little more believable

runs in to someone?

which demo do you mean? and which part?

im guessing you mean the x06 demo?

when he has killed the target and wall jumps in to the crowd? watch as soon as he lands someone steps forward and shoves him(bar goes down) he run into someone (bar goes down) he shoves a guy out of the way (nothing) runs clear of the crowd (bar disappears)

chops down scaffold ...

runs for gate (a smaller bar beneath the stamina one appears and gets bigger[guessing this is the confidence bar])gate drops down blocking his escape(bar drops by 1/2) turns around and faces all the guards(bar slides below the scale and disappears, stamina bar starts shrinking fast)

if its not the x06 demo can you post a link and the bit in the video your talking about so i can check it out please
