View Full Version : One world, or the Other? Starting the game... *SPOILER*

08-28-2006, 12:35 PM
Okay, according to Wikipedia, the June edition of GameInformer said this about the sci-fi twist: [quote]the player is actually a far-future descendant of Altair who is looking back on his ancestor's exploits. The game is experienced through genetic memory, and the game actually becomes more defined and easier as this descendant remembers more about his ancestor. The 'computer offline' message may be a computer that is decoding these memories, and death in the memory is some kind of glitch in the system.[quote]

It has already been confirmed that some part of the game will take place in the future.

*read question*

Now you've read the question, and hopefully chosen an answer, tell me how the game will begin.
Will the future-Altair be going to the facility and plugging his brain into the Sony‚"ěĘ BrainRaider‚© 9000?
Or will the past Altair get picked up by the Hashashin Training Corporation‚©?
Or will you come up with something different?

I say it'll begin in the past. Ubi is going to pretend like it's still a twist... when we've known about it for quite some time now.

I wish it just took place in the past, that would be way cooler. I think it will start in the future, something happens that makes you get ordered to remember(?) your past for some reason. If he just wants to see what his ancestor's did this future thing would be incredibly Lame. So the reason he dives into his memories is what I am wondering. Can he change stuff in his memories?

I think it'll start as a "normal" game in the past, and after a while the player figures out it's just an emulation.

08-29-2006, 12:58 AM
^ Same. If you have ever seen existenz i think it'll pan out like that. That movie was just plain wierd.

It will start of in the sub plot of you playing as Altair, then you will discover the real plot as you get deeper.

Perhaps someone trying to figure out an age old mystery surrounding the Templars and the Assassins.

Yeah, I agree with Lhorkan http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Or wouldn't it be funky if Altair was plugged into this computer that simulated the past..or whatever, and then he couldn't remember anything before waking up in a seemingly 'differen't world http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif Then as the game goes on and on, he somehow realises that "it's just an emulation." just like Lhorkan said http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif [/funkythought]

08-29-2006, 02:59 AM
Yeah I also agree with Lhorkan. But I don't really know how that can be possible since when you die the lady pops up and says "I thought we lost you"...

the game will most likely have little video scenes of the person in the far future looking back into Altairs experience.i have the GI June magazine and i found the truth. Page 61 3rd last paragraph..yeah. Holy ****. Altair is the character from the future. thats insane huh? maybe the dude is on shrooms or sumthing and can play that events that his ancestors did back in 1191.

08-30-2006, 01:12 PM
come ON! Maybe the guy was just smoking weed! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

08-31-2006, 09:48 AM
haha. nah man. weed isnt a hallusinajin. i forget how to spell that. If he was on drugs , he would have to b on a serious LSD trip, silvia trip, or shrooms. Silvia from i hear is pretty insane so he might b on that one.

08-31-2006, 10:38 AM
Does it really matter what drugs he was on if he was on any? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Back on topic now...

09-01-2006, 03:04 PM
of course dude. some drugs really open up ur mind to endless possiblities. and if Altair really did take a drug to go back into his ancestors' time then it had to be some really crazy mind drug.

09-01-2006, 03:56 PM
Somthing tells me that Altair didnt take drugs to do a time travel thing-majic http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

09-01-2006, 05:46 PM
So Altiar is actualy doing drugs http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Ignore the idiotic-ness of me, but i have no idea what drugs has to do with this o_o

09-01-2006, 06:18 PM
lol. i dont think Altair is doing drugs though cause the rating of the game would have to be M for mature cause of drug usage but the rating is only 16+. that must be a new rating cause ive never seen that one til today on this site.
