So might be early but the Tokyo Game Show 2009 kicks off next thursday...

Atmon mentioned on twitter that there staff have been briefed about the build of the game at the event... There are a few gaming sites and magazines getting some hands on of the TGS build and there will be an embargo until then...

Lets use this topic to talk about what we want to see and what we can see...

I will update with any info i hear about...

Well whatd'ya know. TGS end on my birthday.

There are only a few, very elusive things that I want to see.

1. The tailors and customization
2. Leonardo's Face
3. Shaun Hastings, The New Animus, and some gameplay of Desmond's portion
4. Swimming. I want to bloody see Ezio swimming.
5. Notoriety removal side mission or two.

I wanna see anything they can show us. I want my mind to be blown like a runny nose.

Greed? "Greed in psychology is an excessive desire to acquire or possess more than what one needs or deserves more than what one needs or deserves, especially with respect to material wealth."

Showing the entire game is LESS than what <STRIKE>all of us</STRIKE> I deserve http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif .

I just want to see some clear gameplay, some new fight mechanics, a clear view of the HUD/map. I want to leave swimming and all other stuff as a suprise for when I get the game. I hope they leave some to mystery until the release, makes for even more "holy sh*t this game is awesome moments"!!!

09-21-2009, 09:01 AM
with the game being playable i'm guessing that someone will be naughty and video it and it will somehow end up on the internet...

Hoping Ubi release some good videos tho of the game, i winder if they are going to cover TGS like they did E3 and have a whole site dedicated to videos from Ubisoft that would be immense.

I don't know where I heard this, but WAAAAY back I heard that in a fight, we would be able to grab handfuls of sand and blind opponents. Granted, now that we have smoke bombs it might be a little low-tech, but it would be very sweet to see.

Fight mechanics in general would be good. And swimming or using water as a hide spot. And seeing Desmond's gameplay. And more new missions!

...come to think of it, seeing a shelf full of AC2 disks for sale would be great to see too http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The thing that struck me most from the new video is how much faster the movement is. I'm thinking going back to playing Altair after playing as Ezio is going to feel really really slow.

I think its a good change though. I like that Ezio can run at a good pace across narrow beams now. The vertical climbing might be a little bit too fast for my taste, but it definitely looks fun.

Hi, I'm new to these forums.

I was thinking last night after watching the trailer about the scene where Ezio is kissing the woman. I remembered back from the third developer diary where they mentioned that some cutscenes and one of the guys says "if you hit the cinimatic at the wrong time then you might just hug a lady, whereas if you hit it at the right time well who knows whats gonna happen" and now I am sure that this kissing scene is going to be like that. just an interesting idea that I thought I would share...

The love interest was before Ezio became an assassin so I wouldn't expect it to have a major part in the story. Probably just to emphasize the life Ezio leaves behind when he decides to get his revenge.

It could be that Giovanni wanted at least one of his sons to continue the family business. By "family business" I mean the legitamate business with banks and money and stuff. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif So he would try to keep the assassin lineage a secret. I would appreciate the irony of that story. The only son that was chosen not to be an assassin is the one who inherits the eagle vision and then becomes an assassin anyway.

I agree with Kyle. The narrator is talking about Ezio’s first kiss – which is adorable http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/inlove.gif – but that doesn’t mean that specific girl has to play a role in the story.

And, if those being hanged are his father and brothers, Ezio seems too young at the time to take part on his family businesses.

^ just the TGS gameplay footage again, its not new.

At 23s I think you can hear an Orator speaking as Ezio climbs the tower.

Then at 54s, you hear another voice speaking, it doesn't sound quite the same, but it could just be that he is much closer. After Ezio throws the smoke bomb you see a selectable character run across the screen (note the other crowd are not selectable), I think that this may be an Orator.

Do you mean by using a ladder? Only the agiles should be able to climb a vertical surface. Maybe the militia will be able to as well. If they can it seems like they'ed climb at Altair's speed and the agiles would climb at Ezio's speed. But it seems like the seeker isn't meant to be versatile. They're the detection specialist afterall.

09-27-2009, 09:59 PM
So, here was my big concern.

Quoted from the joystiq hands on

"One aspect that has seen less notable change is the combat, which still leans a bit too heavily on split-second counters. A new set of weapons (including ones claimed from fallen enemies) are a good addition, but in the aftermath of Batman: Arkham Asylum, the process of luring out attacks can feel a bit rote.
"

Hmm, hopefully there are still quite a few different animations when you double hit square, or X whatever you console may be.

I LOVE try to NOT counter unless they're swinging at me, which most of the time I can get the special kill off in one or two sword connects.

I guess it would be harder to get that type of kill of with a Halberd? I hope things like this get at least 2 or 3 animations.

Losk_
09-27-2009, 10:04 PM
Yeah, im not too concerned with that part of the article. Combat in AC1 isn't all counters unless you chose to play that way... It's silly to stand there holding the trigger button down waiting to counter when you can attack and kill guards and then counter them at a moments notice if one takes a swing at you...

PlagueDoctor357
09-27-2009, 10:08 PM
I've seen Ezio do one in the Visions of Venice trailer that Altair does.

He slices the guy across the chest then stabs the sword through his side and it looks power.

I just hope the weapons get like 3 or 4 of those animations each, having 30 weapons or whatever they said it was and doing that would be BOSS!!

- In Assassin’s Creed, Masyaf was the home of the assassins. Is there a home city or a sort of hideout where Ezio can go without being troubled by guards in Assassin’s Creed II?

In his adventure, Ezio will discover the Auditore Family Villa, in the city of Monteriggioni. Perched atop a beautiful Tuscan valley, Monteriggioni has become run down and is badly in need of repair. The Villa will become Ezio’s domain.
As Ezio, you will be able to invest in renovations, bringing the city back to its former glory. You may also choose to redecorate the Villa Auditore with famous renaissance paintings, stock your weapons and armor, and store a variety of collected objects. Any improvement to the city will help develop the local economy, rewarding you with periodic income, which can be reinvested in the city or used elsewhere in the game. In addition, Monteriggioni hides many secrets. Ezio will be able to discover some secrets about his family’s past and many other surprises for players that will look into the most hidden areas of the Villa.

- We’ve previously heard about famous families – the Medici and the Pazzi – and the conspiracy that is at the heart of their history. Will the game involve any other controversial history facts around great figures of the Italian Renaissance?

Renaissance Italy was known for being a time of great political anarchy – there wasn’t any one leader to rule the country and families would strive for power over the pieces of territory that composed Italy. In Venice you had the Doges. In Florence, the Medici family took control of the city – and left the Pazzi family behind – which triggered the Pazzi conspiracy against the Medici brothers. In Rome, the power essentially belonged to the Popes. One of the most famous Popes of the renaissance being Pope Alexander the 6th. He was a typical Renaissance Pope in many ways but he was also probably the worst. All the Popes in the Renaissance treated the people’s State like their own territorial kingdom: they raised armies, they marched into the field, they sacked cities, they launched campaigns against their enemies. Since betrayal was a common thing at the time, they also tended to rely on family members as close councilors and lieutenants, people they felt they could trust because they never were sure whether the other cardinals in the Vatican were entirely on their side. Alexander the 6th pursued exactly those strategies but he took them to unheard-of lengths. You will get to meet “the Pope” in Assassin’s Creed 2…


- What more can you tell us about Leonardo Da Vinci in the game?

Leonardo is a student in Verrocchio’s workshop until 1476. Between 1476 and 1481, there is little historical information on Leonardo’s life…Here is our version: What really happened between these dates is that the Auditore, Ezio’s family, patron Leonardo to open his own workshop. Therefore, Ezio will meet Leonardo as he visits the artist in his workshop. Events will bring both Leonardo and Ezio to become very good friends and therefore close confident to one another. They are both progressive men and are each master of their arts. They spend a lot of time discussing their personal problems and helping each other work their way through them. Leonardo is aware of the tragedy that befalls the Auditore family and will support Ezio through it.

As you all know, Ezio becomes an assassin. On the other side, Leonardo is not an assassin and he is not fully aware of what Ezio is going through throughout the story. Leonardo will ask Ezio a lot of questions and Ezio will have a hard time opening up to what he “really” does. There is a little tension between Ezio and Leonardo throughout the story but Leonardo is wise and understands the choices his friend needs to make.

Leonardo plays an important role in Ezio’s life. Leonardo also helps Ezio solve mysteries and puzzles, build weapons, and create inventions that will each have their use to Ezio! If you need something for a mission, Leonardo is there for you.

Mtv's video set up sucks. It never plays for more than 3 seconds and if I rewind it it has to re-buffer what it just played. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif
