You can see that the battle goes differently than in the E3 demo. You can see that it's definitely not on-rails/scripted set-piece. Looks great, want to play it already!

Also, naval combat menus shown:

Maybe super ultra powerful, but can easily miss?

It's used to break the Mast of the ship and thus bring it to a halt.

Kinda like a stun, basically?
It really seems this is a real gameplay mode rather than a mini game. Really enjoying it sof ar.

There will probably be a time limit before you can use more powerful shots again. One basic shot could have no time limit, while the Chain Shot for example could require around 20 seconds to use once more.

ACR might have been rushed, but the fault with Den Defense is that Ezio wasn't really mobile in it.

I would have liked to set up my troops on the roofs and then actually tried to take on the waves of Templars with something more than my Gun.

I found it derived of any fun. I found it really, just extremely tedious. I avoided it like a plague from how bad it was.
That even affected my overall playing experience, because every time I get higher Awareness, I have too go hunt down Heralds who are far in between.
This seems like something I would want too play and try.

I haven't watched the video yet. I'm just wondering why the weapon interface has to be so huge. In ACR it made sense since there were two weapon wheels, but here there's just a lot of empty space.

I'm wondering what the last icon on the right of the weapon menu is. It looks like a noose, but I doubt we'll get to hang people. Could it be a hunting trap?

I've looked at your average post count each day and have managed to work out that you spend around 3 and a half hours each day not just on the forum, but actively typing out each post, you have over 400 posts on average each day, you have to wait at least 30 seconds between posting, 400 X 30 = the amount of seconds you spend typing on these forums each day. That is a huge amount, not even counting the amount of time you spend on these forums when not posting (whenever the hell that may be)

Anyway, sorry for derailing, I'll stop now

Alex says his European last name (without actually saying it) is on the internet but they're trying to keep it secret. Kenway is definitely not a secret. So could he mean 'Lee?'

Alex definitely didn't think the GameSpot guy was asking about Lee surname. Why would he? The "Lee is father" theory may be very likely true, but it ain't widely known. Kenway surname is the one that's widely known

HaSoOoN-MHD
07-14-2012, 05:25 PM

We have a hidden dagger. Looks like you can purchase other daggers for some dagger dual-wielding.

And I don't think I ever saw a short-sword, only the sawtooth sword.

Free-aim with the bow, you know, you can actually aim where you shoot rather than it being locked onto one spot. I think it'll be like Red-Dead Redemption's auto-aim though, as in, when you target an enemy the cross-hair locks onto them, but you still have some control over where to shoot.

HaSoOoN-MHD
07-14-2012, 05:39 PM
Oh, we already saw free aim in the E3 demo. I think you can also completely free aim, like we saw with the pistols. I dont think you can actually shoot without locking on with the bow, tho.

A musket, by definition, is a smooth-bore long gun (not a rifle. Rifled muskets weren't used until the late, late 18th century, and became popular in the 19th). There's no such thing as a musket pistol.

Could they replace the melee weapon, as they could have the bayonets attached? Or, they could be like the spears and axes in AC2, you won't be able to actually keep 'em.

They're probably only good for one shot, before taking a long time to reload.

Well, you can purchase them, so you're definitely going to be able to keep it in your inventory. But yes, it could be a two-handed weapon that functions as both a melee weapon and a ranged weapon.

He has been seen using one in melee combat in certain videos anyway, so that will probably be the case.
