It's good that the gun isn't something you can use all the time and it takes a while to aim.

DANG, Ezio has some fast hands! I thought those were gentle pushes or something to that effect, not pickpocketing http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Game is looking incredible! I can't wait! Especially like the chase sequence.

i do like the way ezio takes the guard hostage... looks to me like the have changed the combat as patrice mentions the guards wont take turns to hit you now which was the only downfall of the combat on AC...

Also cant get enough of the 90 degree turning looks fun to be getting chased then all of a sudden you fly round a corner and onto the roof, only for the guard to follow and then BAM assassinate the bugger :P

The pickpocket system is great because it is very simple. I don't think it has to be complex. 2 to 5 coins are just perfect too.

About the weapons wheel, I wonder whether or not we will be able to switch weapon during a fight like in the first game. Using the wheel in the middle of a fight would be frustrating and would stop the action. Anyway, I'm sure we will get accustomed to it!

Critical response: Interface is a bit to [Prototype] for me... Change the colour, give the map and weapon wheel some detail (animus-style filigree?), maybe?
I hope they change those symbols over the mercs and courtesans.

I don't think that will be an issue. If you notice during the demo the only time he used the weapon wheel is when he switched to special weapons/items(i.e. smoke bombs, poison dagger, money pouch, pistol). That still leaves room for the core weapons-sword, short blade, hidden blades, open hand-to be switched during real time like in AC1.

2 to 5 perfect? No way!! Youll have to pickpocket:
- 66 people to refill your health bar once
- 40 people to buy 1 health potion
- 83 people to buy 1 poison vial
Not so perfect... I KNOW they will give you money completing missions, but you should get more (from 8 to 10, in my opinion).

@Cornik22 - in the videos above he pickpocketed about 15 - 20 ppl in the 2 mins so i cant see it being a problem plus in the richer parts of the towns the peeps will no doubt have more money http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I think you're right. At one point (I think it was after he threw the smoke bombs), he switches back to the hidden blade without opening the interface.

Yeah, I bet the wheel graphic is one of the unfinished things, it really looked like a temp graphic when I first saw it.

I'll bet we'll be able to turn off those NPC graphics too. I think that it has been established in earlier interviews/videos that we'll be able to turn off the HUD, much like we can in AC1. It's just a matter of how much granular control we have, to only turn off certain details.

Hopefully we'll be able to assign the d-pad with whatever shortcuts we want to have.

Not sure if this has been confirmed before or not, but it seems pretty clear that the guard's weapons are only temporary, we cant sheathe them or anything, just pickup and drop. But it looks like we can run around with them as long as we want to (though I imagine that will draw a lot of attention).

When Ezio killed the target for the side quest a red spot appeared in the ring around the edges. And when Ezio entered that fight with the guards it really started to fill up.

Omg WE FINALLY GOT THE 30 MIN DEMO YAY!

Ok so to sum up the parts i liked.
All of it. Lol ok i'll try and narrow it down to my favourite parts.

I really liked it when he used the gun.

I really liked it when he pickpocketed, it's hilarious how you kinda bump into them lol.

I really liked it when he poisoned the guard and throw money right next to him and like 20 people just ran for it and most of them died from 1 swing lol that was AWESOME!

I really like the combat system. It's MUCH hard since you have only 5 bars of health and eneimies are much harder and agressive than before.

The crowd also looks stunning.

I also liked it when Ezio hired a bunch of merceneries and ordered them to attack the guards and he just ran past them lol.

And the freerunning / puzzle parts inside the catacombs were awesome, and i also really liked it when Ezio did an air to assassinate and then threw a smoke bomb and had an EPIC chase with a free running guard and in the end Ezio took a free running path and got high enough to assassinate him while the guard was running away.

ASSASSINS CREED 2 IS AMAZING!

No this is probably 10 hours within the game, he has alot of upgrades (poison blade, double hidden blade) ect. So i guess your confusing the 30 min part with how long the demo is, besides patrice never said it was 30 mins into the game at all in any interview or any video.

I wonder what would happen if you threw money off the side of a large tower >.>
Would it kill on impact xD

On a more serious note, I think you can assign things on the wheel to the d-pad or somthing along those lines, would make the most sense.

Considering it only gets you two or three coins each time, then no. It's not too easy. But keep in mind that in the complete game some people will notice and call the guards. Also, others can to the same to Ezio.

welcome to the forums and yes i thought the exact same thing... at least in AC1 you had to not get noticed and could only do one at a time instead of walking through a crowd and just "bump" into everyone

Ezio_475
09-07-2009, 03:15 PM
Well, the pickpocketing will get really hard if you are notorious, because guards will become suspicious and also seekers will probably be able to spot you VERY easy, and there may be alot of guards in certain points in the game.

Losk_
09-07-2009, 03:34 PM
In some ways the pickpocketing is more realistic than in the first game. Bumping into someone at the same time as you steal their wallet masks the sensation of the wallet leaving their pocket.

I never liked the pickpocketing in AC1, walking slowly behind the target with your hand outstretched...

You guys should have downloaded them from youtube when you had the chance.

I was writing out a transcript of the conversation but maybe we aren't allowed to post it since the videos were pulled... They don't seem to have any problem with people posting descriptions of the demo, so I'll assume this is okay.

So there are 5 guys at the table. I'm not sure exactly who is who, but this is what I have:

There is an old man in dark robes, could be a priest or monk of some sort. May be the man referred to as Padre.

There is another old man in nobles clothing.

There is a thin young man with a dark coloured beard. I believe he is Francesco de' Pazzi.

There is the fat nobleman who I think is supplying the weapons. Not sure who he is, but it might be Jacopo de' Pazzi. (someone is called Jacopo, but it is not clear who he was talking to)

Lastly, there is the man from Rome, who gets referred to as Maestro.

Anyway, this is what I can hear:

Unknown speaker: grazie Padre. Magnando. (maybe this is the fat guy's name?)

fat nobleman: It's all here, swords, staves, axes, armour, bows, our men will want for nothing.

Padre: I take this gift to mean the Pope consents?

Maestro: He gave his blessing to the operation, as long as nobody is killed.

Francesco: We're all set for il Duomo in the morning, signore.
The bait has been laid, but it wast easy. His fool brother keeps changing his plans.

fat nobleman: S, I'll need to be on hand to make sure Giuliano even gets out of bed for church tomorrow.
<all laugh>

Padre: What is it Jacopo, do you think they suspect something?

Francesco: Impossible the Medici are too arrogant or too stupid to even notice. Likely a bit of both.
<more laughing>

Jacopo: Do not underestimate our enemies, Francesco. Or have you already forgotten how <inaudible name, or "your son"> was murdered?

Francesco: We'll suffer no such surprises this time, Maestro. You have my word. <Francesco bows to the man from rome>

Maestro: Molto Bene, I should be off, I have some other business to attend to before I return to Rome. <camera cuts to show the old rich dude>

Maestro: Gentlemen, tomorrow a new sun rises over Firenze. May the father of understanding guide us.
<all repeat> May the father of understanding guide us.

Okay everyone.
I had downloaded the videos prior to its deletion, only a few problems.

1. For some reason, I thought I had downloaded part 3, but it didn't. O.o oh well it was just a 3 minute cutscene about the Pazzi Conspiracy.

2. The videos downloaded but without any sound...so you don't know what he's talking about or what's going on.

But while a lot of people did see it, a lot of people haven't yet. It wouldn't be so bad if Ubi would just release their own footage of it. I would like to see it in higher quality. Besides, for a handful of minutes the camera was only getting the top half of the screen. And the sound quality sucked. But hopefully this won't cause Ubi to delay the release of their own footage.

Thanks for the edits, especially "Molto Bene" I never would have got that one. I'll update my original post with them.

The first time I listened I thought that it was "nobody is killed" and also "your son", but the more I listened to it the less it sounded that way.

Also, im not sure that the "nobody is killed" part makes sense, since they are plotting murder.

Anyway, I don't see why everone is so uptight about the hud and the weapons wheel. They look perfectly fine to me.

I think the new hud fits the game well, and the weapons wheel reminds me of the one from DAH! path of the Furon. It works exactly how I picture it.

The catacombs portion was very awesome. I loved the details. The hidden levers and corpses. It looks as if Florence was built over another city, considering how much room and how many doors, windows, and balconies there were. I love how the skull comes out with gears and cogs to unlock the secret entrance. VERY cool.

I also loved how, hilariously, Ezio appeared BLUE in his eagle vision. As if HE would be his own target, or he would fight hmself. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

The gun looks really good too. Perfect.

I also noticed that the Animus logo was replaced with the Assassin logo. So perhaps the Assassin logo is the new Animus logo.

The money throwing mechanic looks pretty good as well.

As for the crowds, I like how the ground lights up under them to show you where you're safe and to show you can blend.

AC2 = GOTY no doubt.
