Though no source was given when I found it, this gif does seem at least pretty trustworthy:

So, what do you think about being able to view your stats during the loading screen? For me, it's a slight but welcome feature. Remember, though, I have not seen any reliable source for this gif, so, at this point, any comments should still be considered speculation.

EDIT: Source, starts at around 3:28:

It looks to me like the Virtual Training arena from ACB, that kept track of your kills (for the kill streak challenges)

I'm REALLY hoping i'm right, and that it's the VR training arena.

From what we saw at gamescom, during the navel demo, the loading screen is now, what some have described as, memory bubbles.

Seems legit. And it looks cool.As long as we can still just watch Connor this is a very good feature.

It would be extremely helpful if you could find it. I hate being bombarded with accusations of posting pure rumors.

You guys have terrible memories. It's from the Inside ACIII Episode 1.

Those things popping up are real time stats, giving the loading screen a bit more fun :), it basically will have things like "Miles Ran" "Enemies killed" "Bears killed" etc

I would really enjoy if the color scheme from AC1 makes a comeback! It really gave the idea of relieving memories from so long ago, the eerie track helped alot too.

I don't think it'll be the same. The colour scheme is supposed to represent the Animus model. That's why when you load the Multiplayer in Brotherhood and Revelations, the Animus goes back to the 1.03 version from the first game.

May be not exactly, but similar :P And, if you check it, both share that background "color" ... At least from the little we have seen on demos and trailers.

What do you mean not exactly? Do you mean that as in I'm not right with regards to the colour's representing the Animus? It's been said by developers many years ago, the Multiplayer side is set through Abstergo's eyes, which is the colour scheme uses AC1's and it has the female voice narrating.

The new colour scheme, is the scheme for the Animus 3.0, which we're using in this game. (Confirmed by the Connor's Weapons Trailer)

My bad, I did not explain it well....

When I wrote "May be not exactly, but similar" I meant my desire of the colors on both AC3 and AC1 looking alike, not that you were wrong or something.......

I'm with you now buddy :)

I like the new colour scheme in the trailers, it's very fancy. The blue tone is very AMBIENT.

To me, it looks more like a simple stat display rather than an interface. Sort of like Portal 2's Co-op stat display?

I have also wondered this. However, though AC1 had very different animations from AC2 and onward, walking the dinosaur in that game was also possible.

All ACs till ACR had the same Animations, what are you talking about ?

I'm fairly certain that AC1's running and climbing animations were quite different than AC2's. (Turn down your volume) Check out this comparison for climbing, at least. (http://www.youtubedoubler.com/?video1=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3 DyJ_cOE801_Y&start1=34&video2=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D XZluudYw7Co&start2=61&authorName=meahwahwah)

No, the AC II video uses the new, faster Ezio climbing. His high Profile one. if you don't use this you`d find that He has the same Climbing Animations as Altair did..

And, No the Running is the same... What Volume ?

The only difference in climbing is that Ezio is able to climb faster. He still reverts to the same slow-style animations sometimes when climbing the spire of a really tall tower (happens a lot in ACR). Their running animations are exactly the same.

jzsnyder
09-03-2012, 03:04 AM
I see your point, but I do not recall Altair having the same climbing animations as Ezio in the low profile. We are both drawing from memory, though, so if you can find a video and double it or something to refute my claim, then I will yield. But for now, I will hold that Ezio and Altair both have different running and climbing animations in their two profiles.

About the volume: I'm not too familiar with some of the features of youtube doubler, and Ezio's video was extremely loud, blasting horrible metal music. I muted it, naturally, but wasn't sure that the mute carries on through the link. Thus, I gave you a volume warning. Un-mute Ezio's video if you like extremely loud scream-o.

Ah, I see. At around 0:58 or so, you can really see the similarities. Thanks.

I imagine the running comparisons to be harder to... eh.... procure, so I'll leave it alone for now. Unless, of course, you get an enjoyable sensation whenever you prove someone wrong. I know I do.

Anyways, the music in that video was still pretty loud, and I still couldn't understand the lyrics. Overall, it would have been a better choice for the comparison in hindsight.

Anyway this is new to me. Fable 3's interactive pause menu is still cool so it'd be interesting if that's what this is, but this looks like a loading screen to me.

On topic: If it is no longer possible to walk the dinosaur in AC3 then I'm sure someone (most likely motdef) will come up with an equally amusing way of taking extinct reptiles onto the streets.

That's why we need an Ezio skin. :rolleyes:

On-topic: I don't really care what they do with the loading screen, I'm sure it'll look cool. I'm curious to see if it will in any way resemble the VR Room from ACB.

I'm pretty sure this is the general consensus. After about 3 years of work on the game, I doubt Ubisoft could screw up something as simple (though sacred) as the loading screen. And even if they do, it's not that big of an issue anyways.

I'm thinking that it's actually just an out of focus close-up on the girl that's playing's face, but is focused instead on Connor's face on the screen, making it look like she's in the game-world.
