A dagger.

A templar dagger.

and he has some unique animations.

though I do use the word "some" generously

Laziness and recycled animations in Rogue? Why I never! :rolleyes:

As long as we can see Shay's fine booty in action it's all good.

I'm sure he'll get more as the story progresses.

They all do...

An entirely new weapon like with Adewale's machete would have been preferred. An actual one-handed gun-blade that's more practical than Edward's pistol swords would have been awesome. It wouldn't be completely out of place since the whole idea was experimented with around the 18th century and the Templars are equipped with advance tools due to unlimited wealth.

The whole dual wielding thing are the Kenways' specialty. If Shay used a single sword or dagger with some new animations, I wouldn't mind it as much. ...Ugh

-------------

Anyway, not all of Shay's sword and dagger animations are recycled. He walk/runs with them differently, places them away individually, and some of his kill animations are new. (caught a lot few more from the live stream)

Still lazy work, though.

That's every game since AC - ACR, AC3 - AC Rogue and the new cycle ACU - ?. Not a big deal, AC2(fan favorite) has every animation from AC(and more) but still the same. If that one can get a pass, why not the rest?

Real answer: Because AC2 is immune to criticism.

Answer that won't piss off fanboys: After AC3 introduced a whole new set of animations people expect higher standards.

Sad truth.

To high standards.

There's a difference between laziness and reusing stuff to spare time and money.

Keeping the old animations is fine as long as there is a lot of new ones, which is what AC2, ACB, ACR, AC3 and Unity did or will do.

Not much was added for AC4 and Rogue, but with short dev time what can you expect.

Yeah its **** to be honest. They should have just given Shay two swords instead of changing it and keeping all the animations. Did not see one new one as people claim so far.

i do not think people should be surprised at reused stuff. All reviews will probably say that and give it an 8.

Its more the "WTF" factor of changing the skins of something but keeping the same animation. They should have just kept dual swords.

If Ubisoft can't be bothered to give Rogue all new animations because they're lazy and can't be arsed to spend money and time and effort, then why the hell should any of us spend our money buying this 2nd-rate game?

AC2 actually doesn't have all of AC1's animations. Alta´r has several unique short blade and hidden blade animations. Ezio's sword-fighting style is different too.

AC4 recycled a lot of AC3 animations but also gave us a ton of new ones. If AC4 did it one year after AC3's release, why not Rogue? (Most probable answer: because Rogue was developed in just a few months. But that's beside the point.)

I just saw the new Ubisoft's stream,and there are many new kill animations,and some sort of "quick climbing" animation too.

And for that reason I never used any small weapons besides the tomahawk in ACIII.

If you can't tell what's new or reused, I would imagine this wouldn't bother you...

AC:IV had a lot of new animations. (and a lot stripped, sadly) But yeah, I expect RO to get the same treatment from AC:R. From the looks of it, it pretty much is.

I think I saw 2-3 new animations in the most recent demos. I'm sure there'll be more as well as ones from AC4 as we've seen.

Yeah, I'm sure there will be different animations for shay. It's not like they used any of Connor 's animations for Edward. Oh wait......
