Okay I watched some gameplay, the one where he can buy the first armor piece "roman shoulder guards." My question is if at the beginning of the game he has no second blade and a shoulder guard, how is it that the screen shots show him with double blades but no shoulder guard and an upgraded cape guard (metal)? When I say shoulder guard I mean right shoulder not cape guard.

Both Arm Guards No right Shoulder guard

Right Arm guard no left arm guard?

I thought once you got armor you couldn't take off or wear some pieces and not others.

This is actually pretty interesting. My guess is that (SPOILER ALERT) in the beginning battle one of your arm guards might be damaged or lost or something that requires you to find/buy/build a new one.

just wondering cause I heard somewhere you can't take off armor and this clearly goes against what I heard.

Perhaps the shoulder guard is story related??? I have no idea http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

You choose between two hidden blades or one hidden blade + crossbow. I think (hope) you can change between the two in your hideout at any time...

i really hope it aint like that, i would prefer to be able to use both hidden blades and the crossbow... makes no sense either to have to choose

hidden blades are on the bracers on both arms, the crossbow on your back... how would having a crossbow mean you cannot have a 2nd arm bracer with a hidden blade? :S

Gameplay choices don't necessarily have to follow realworld-logic...since the crossbow is used in melee as well (you can block and punch with it, sweep enemies from their feet and shoot a bolt in their head), a second hidden blade would be a bit redundant...

that's true, but you shouldn't have to ever un-equip the 2nd hidden blade in order to use the crossbow, it should just be a option on the weapon wheel

I imagine he's talking about in combat. If you're holding a crossbow, then only one hand is free to use your hidden blade.

No...he understood me just right. I meant equipment...I think it adds a bit variety and a tactical side to the game, when you have to chose if you want to focus more on melee or ranged combat...

Well in the gameplay he has both hidden blades and a cross bow on his back. Watched live gameplay last night(no spoilers) thank God. But I didn't watch much so I am still confused lol. Cause no one has confirmed or denied this.
