View Full Version : My little idea

07-17-2007, 12:34 PM
this is my idea now i am not saying that i want this in the game but i think it would be cool so here we go

A whip, it was used back them for reasons not really combat but hey it could yet add another way of getting around the place by wrapping it around a beam and pulling your self up onto a ledge..could be a bit faster of getting to a safety place and giving you a few secs more to find out where to go next.

or a grappling hook and than you can pull people into things and use it to attatch to a roof and run up it for a unusual gettaway.
"what way he go" "ummmm up"
what u think

i dont really like the grappling hook, but i really wouldnt like a whip

a whip can pull things to make distractions and would make a good weapon and the grappling hook could give a good old whack on the noggin amoungst other things

07-17-2007, 03:02 PM
Sounds like a cross between Indiana Jones and Link...

Personally I don't like it.

It's an interesting concept, and unique (not many video game characters have whips), but it would be hard to program. I'm sure they had a hard enough time programing virtually EVERYTHING interactive with just the hands. Programming the whip would mean working out the boundaries so it doesn't go sailing through walls to interact with something around the corner, or sailing past the object you wanted to hit and smacking a guard in the head instead. Also, trying to hit people or objects with it would mean for either a targeting system for inanimate objects (which would be difficult, because there are so many things everywhere) or an awkward combination of first-person and animation (it would look strange to be in first person and just have a whip shoot out from the corner, in my opinion). Also, it would take away from the Parkour aspect of the game, which was a huge inspiration for a lot of the animation. I'm sure we'll have enough of a time trying to figure out what's accessible just by jumping around, much less looking for things even farther away in the distance to grapple/whip to. It's still a good idea, in concept, but it isn't very practical in application.

why would you use a whip to make distractions why cant you just walk up and grab somthing to throw to make a distractions everything and about hitting ppl on the head with a grappling hook....PUNCH HIM IN THE FACE!

A whip is too cumbersome for Altair'it wouldn't work. Just stick to his awesome acrobatic skills.

07-17-2007, 10:28 PM
A whip? been spending a little too much time with the ol' Hentia have we?

07-20-2007, 03:58 AM
funny....a whip. but hey i was wondering if this game could be like oblivion on how there are side missions just to make the game more longer and fun . plus the makers of this game talk about upgrades . Examples, boots and hand grips. do you go on side missions to earn money to buy these items? pick pocket for money? or steal? what do you all think?

07-20-2007, 04:02 AM
Whip?!? Ok mister what are you watching?

07-20-2007, 04:04 AM
i only like a whip if it´s combined with Halle Berry and a catsuit
ok the movie was sh*t but she bought the catsuit xD

07-20-2007, 04:04 AM
Meh, sorry.

Whip, no.

Grappling hook, why would you need it if you can climb up using every detail on the building?

how can you compare link ( http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif ) with indiana *spit*!!!!

link, altair and the prince are untouchables!!!

shame on you...! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

unless you mean tenchu (rikimaru, ayame and whoever else got mixed into that warped storyline...) and their grappling hook then ok.

but in the end, no, i dont wanna see altair swinging like an idiot across beams with a whip...

image...altair being chased by guards. he makes his way outta the city. the gate is closing...he dives! he barely makes it under the gate. he then stretches his arm under the small space still left by the closing gate, then stops as he remembers that he wears a hood, and not a cowboy/pheasant hat.

nah...i dont think so...

07-20-2007, 04:24 AM
Imagine Altair in a catsuit

i don´t like zelda games
simple if you want to hate a game, hate the protagonist
i don´t even like metal gear

a blond little midget who never speaks

i dont like tony montana...a tall ugly guy in a tiki shirt that has a movie called "scarface"...laaaaaa-aaaaaame http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

besides, link isnt a midget anymore...but he isnt a pirate anymore either...

07-20-2007, 05:13 AM
you just hit my nerve
i allways like tony montana, al pacino made a wonderful cuban refuge for sure
don´t you flame scarface
it´s one of the movies i watched almost 100 times and it never gets stupid, though it has this big influence on 12 year old kids thinking they were mr. big
tonys left testicle could kill link in 2 seconds
btw tony is small and not tall

07-20-2007, 05:17 AM
i know, but hes taller than link http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

link would canonball tony's left AND right testicle even before tony could give the impression to 12 year olds that they were mr.big...

BTW dont YOU flame. i played zelda (all the games put together, not one specific) over 100 times, and link doesnt need to speak. just watch his eyes and thats enough...

Give this man the largest, most hilarious trophy money can buy! Then award him the playboy mansion and a new pair of very expensive socks! He won all of them fairly with one post.

FURTHERMORE, Link is quite a handsome young lad. Silent midget? I'm gonna kill somebody.

07-20-2007, 06:38 AM
link isn´t handsome
hugh grant is handsome, colin farrel is, johnny depp is bu NOT LINK
