Anybody noticed how he had a different outfit on at one point? No robe part. Customization PLEASE.

It sucks because everything else looks AMAZING, but This is the first AC game where I actually hate the main character's outfit. Even adding those leather pads back on the shoulders would do WONDERS. He just looks like a blue velvet curtain from the back..

Saw a glimpse of a cutscene in there, which will probably get taken out.

Jade Raymond was the face during AC1's promotion. Of course when you have a pretty face doing the marketing you should have expected a lot of rude, sexist, and perverted comments. A lot of immature people flooded gaming sites saying sexist and perverted comments to a point that someone made a sexual and dirty cartoon comic of Jade Raymond convincing a male to buy AC1. Since then it has been mostly the Creative Director doing the interviews and not a producer. The experience pretty much scared and creep her away. And LieutenantRex's comments kinda backs that up to some degree. No offense to him.

Totally agreed. I am really excited by everything I've seen thus far...but every time I see that robe, it bugs me. A crossbelt, a red twill inset, literally anything to break up that waterfall of blue velvet. I'm hopeful we can change it ourselves though, since one of the "coming soon" sections on the official website is labeled "Deep Customization to Craft Your Own Master Assassin".

Just go to the main website and scroll down. Next to the animated guillotine are 4 featured sections. The third (and next to be revealed) is customization.

Seriously...as annoyed as people were that there were no holsters on Edward's front, how much worse will it be if this is the final iteration of the outfit? I mean, the front is gorgeously detailed. The back looks more bland than most NPC outifts--and it's his back that you're going to spend dozens of hours looking at.

Bland is perfect for blending in. It's about time we went back to non-attention-raising outfits.

Apparently the statue comes with a code to download the outfit with leather shoulder pads.

I mean... what else would you put there? I think it just looks bland to some people because there's no weapon there (although if you buy an axe or spear, that'll be on there).

I absolutely adore it, it's my favorite AC robe so far.

Don't get me wrong, for the most part I really like the outfit. I've always had a problem with the gaudiness of AC's costumes, and I think this is the most historically plausible look yet. But I don't think adding red panel (like in the CG trailers, where there's a burgundy panel below the hood) would spoil the unobtrusiveness of the outfit, and it would certainly make it easier to look at.

I don't have a problem with the robes.

But for all of you who don't like it, it seems they are focusing tons of customization. In UbiBlog, it says customize your apparel, gear, abilities and skills. Says there is a skill tree for combat, stealth, and navigation. Thats incredible, finally some plausible and rewarding progression.

Agreed. For that reason I'm not as worried about the outfit, because I may wind up tweaking it anyway. (Also I have always wanted a skill tree for AC, so yaaaaay Unity!)

This was posted elsewhere, but it's relevant to our current discussion:

Dude look lean and agile, no silly armor to interfere with the free running. Besides, ba's like me don't need none for combat anyway, I gots my dodges for that.
Love the plain blue...how I did it with Ezio in ACB. Limited armor, blue robes, lots of blood splashing.

You know that cutscene where two of the Assassins throw the marquis off the balcony? Do the scores determine which team members get to be in that cutscene (like accolades) or is it random? Can't wait to see how a combat approach plays out.

First of all, ****weed, I didn't state it in a way suggesting that she should be in my kitchen making me a sandwich or that I'd 'tap' that. I was just giving her a freakin' compliment. Can't someone do that anymore without you liberal hipsters getting offended? Oversensitive ******bags...

I kind of think that cutscene was just for demo purposes. They talk about it a bit in the IGN "Making Of" featurette, and they imply that they just made it to establish the mood/theme of the game for the reveal. I don't even think there are "scores" per se, since it's supposed to be cooperative. I feel like having individual points would discourage people from acting as a team. That's sure as hell how it is with Wolfpack. "Teamwork" my arse.

I think he was referring to your comment as proof that she might get extra and/or unwanted attention because she's an attractive woman, not calling you out as one of the people who made inappropriate comments.

I agree on almost everything Amancio said.

I mean it's basically what I wanted from AC since ACIII was released.

Less restrictive missions, urban environments, the assassin feeling (even including the brotherhood feeling with coop), Coop free roam and missions, "Blade in the crowd" social stealth improvements, Crouch button, more control over parkour.

It's all there, the interesting period, the huge landmarks, the assassin feeling, the freedom, hell even the MYSTERY atmosphere which I missed since AC1 (AC1 was UNIQUE in atmo).

I think they might just nail it this time. This would be a huge step.


EDIT: Also, I absolutely LOVE the Robes. Wanna know why? No weapons. Yeah sure he has weapons, but did you realize how subtle it is, how hidden they are, he really seems to blend in a lot, making him seem like both a peasant OR a nobleman, it's great.

As always Sage, you nailed it. I don't need any armor, all I need is a subtle outfit, small weapons and my badass stealth skills :cool:

Another thing which is also a welcome addition, they seem to add RPG elements. Sure, I don't want this to be a full RPG, but customization and abilities (to a degree) are amazing and I think in an open world game that only adds to the experience.

That's sure as hell how it is with Wolfpack. "Teamwork" my arse.

I think since Ubisoft Toronto is helping with the coop I think it will be more like Splinter Cells 4th Echelon missions in terms of rating, I think we might get team scores rather than individual ones.


Ohh it looks like Eagle vision has a cool down. nice. Good idea.

Agreed, makes it less overpowered while keeping it useful.

Speaking of the Eagle Vision cool down. I don't know if Ubisoft will implement it, but I think it could also be used as a story device too. What if Arno's Eagle Vision ability isn't as strong as the other Assassins we have gotten to play? I think it would be a cool thing to do to make that new mechanic immersive.

You can go through AC3 with only a single pistol, the tomahawk, and your hidden blades.

No,this has little to do with the delay.The first part was uploaded on june 10th or something and the other one around the 20nd of july.Supposedly,the 3rd part was going to be uploaded in early september.The delay was about 2 weeks,but the 3rd part seems to have been delayed about 2 months!
Also,the journalist,or whatever he is,said that he is "working on it".Jesus,is he working on it since july??Because the interview on which the series is based on was made in June,at the latest!
Last but not least,there are supposedly 4 parts in total and only 2 weeks left,excluding the current one and the week in which the game is out.Which means that IGN will upload one part each week,aka the "previous system".
Anyway,as i said IGN tried to change the old(successful) system and have failed IMO.

I say that because in my opinion AC 1 had the best setting. Paris could easily be the best though, but I havn't played the game yet. The 1:1 scale of buildings is really really awesome and the overall structures of the buildings are epic.
