This is something that has been building up inside me for a LONG time, and I need to get it off my chest before it consumes my soul.


In Assassin's Creed Revelations, when Yusef introduces Ezio to the hookblade, he states "The hookblade has two parts; the hook, and the blade"

Why do people always claim this to be such a "captain obvious" statement? I get it as a joke, but do people seriously not realise that the point of his statement was to clarify that the hook and the blade are two seperate parts, as opposed to one unified hook/blade hybrid?


Just sayin', the statement isn't as bad as many folk make it out to be.

Because it just sounds bloody silly. The name already makes it more than clear that the Hookblade has a hook and a blade.

That Nicolas Cage "NARRRR" face makes me wet myself with laughter everytime.

Also, the statement was stupid, however it was apparently put in because when first announced, there was a huge debate between everyone about whether or not it is actually used as a blade or not anymore.


Also, litle trivia for you all, at the Newcastle GAME VIP Event, I overheard Esco mumbling it while playing Revelations. Made me laugh so hard haha

If that has been building up inside you for a long time I think you need to find a new outlet ;) besides...

I just don't ever remember seeing the actual blade part. Even in the fighting sequences, Ezio just used the hook from what remember

Well because they're people, they need something to make fun of :P

I didn't feel anything was wrong/awkward about it until after some people started saying it...EVERYWHERE.

He uses it when double assassinating...

No he doesn't, it is still the hook.

Birth canals?

Oh and I should say to clarify, the rope dart has two parts: the rope, and the dart.

Yeah how exactly do you stab someone with a hook blade? Seems like the hook would hinder that somewhat.

The hidden gun has two parts: the hidden and the gun.

Not when you double-assassinate enemies. The hook slides down the blade. Otherwise you'd have a pretty d*mn hard time stabbing someone with a blunt hook.

I literally just played through that scene and that line helped me understand, because at first, I didn't think a Hookblade made sense. I was trying to imagine a whacky Captain Hook contraotion with rounded bit sharpened off...
