In this interview...

http://uk.gamespot.com/video/930278/6174521/assassins-creed-stage-demo-1

Jade says that one of the main influences was a book called elements? Which is about the assassins of that time...does anybody more about this book? Like who the author is? Has anybody read it?

p.s, has this countdown thing on ign finished yet? Im looking at the ign.uk site so cant see it. If so what was it about...

You cannot look at the US site of IGN?

It hasn't finished otherwise these forums would flood with topics such as "OMG NEW IGN PREVIEW LOL"

All it really does it help the page load faster for UK folks, I think there should be an option to switch.

Yeah Thanx Guys!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alamut_%281938_novel%29

"Alamut is a novel by Vladimir Bartol, first published in 1938 in Slovene, dealing with the story of Hassan ibn Sabbah and the Hashshashin, and named after their Alamut fortress.

The maxim of the novel is "Nothing is real, everything is allowed."

Gonna Order it, think it will be cool if it was one of the main influences...

However even then I do not think much that it deserves it's own thread, I mean really if you missed that you are probably blind or were zooming into Altair's *** or face..hehehehehe....***...face...
