Many interviews and articles have said that Ezio will be able to pickpocket anybody and take their cash. There was one thing about this that worried me though. In AC1 you would lock on to a person to pick pocket. I assume that you have to do the same in AC2. But how is it possible to lock onto a specific target if your spammed by a whole crowd of people who you can lock onto?
Ex. You pick somebody you need to lock onto for any mission you happen to be doing. but they are in a crowd of people. How can you lock onto them if you keep getting stuck on the others?

Basically, will it be hard to single somebody out with this system?

Also, other people can pickpocket you. Is there any way to defend against this? If you see somebody's fingers in your pocket can you turn and punch them to get your money back? Or is it impossible to know and there is no way to prevent it?

I would imagine it would be done the same way it was done in AC1 with the guys you took knives from. It's probably a specific character model.

I'm sure they figured something out to select the person you need from the crowd. And yeah, I'm sure there will be a counter-pickpocket move as wellhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I think you'll be able to pickpocket while blending with the crowd, so perhaps when you blend in, you get a new button of pick pocket (same when you locked on someone and walked slowly near him). So now instead of just locking to get the pick pocket option, you'll have to blend to get it.

counter pick pocket moves will be great. Someone sticks there hand in your pocket then they get jabbed by the hidden blade.
What would happen if a guard tried to pickpocket you?

Lol, I'm telling you, if someome pick pockets me, I'll chase him through half Venice, take my money, kill him, throw his body to the canal, go to his home, kill his family, take their money, and then come out of the game to the Online Tea Party (will be known from now on as OTP) and tell my friends about it in the cool multiplayer mode!

I laughed, hard. That's probably what I would do aswell. Or, I would let him/her do it to me, follow them while being incognito, then drop down (like in the video) and shoot them in the face. Then I would carry their body to the town square and drop it in the middle for all future pick-pocketers to see. (Reference to the notority system)

You mean to say you don't suck at killing people as much as Tamir.

Oh, 30 slashes later you still haven't killed him? I don't know if you noticed, but there's no combo counters in AC. Let me show you how it's done, *SHANK* 1 hit.

I think you maybe have an crosshair or something like that to lock onto a target to pickpocket or aim to shoot someone with the hidden gun

I'd like to think they're going to have a few different models for the pickpocketers and a few different behaviors. Like they have to experienced ones, the ones that have been going since like age 5, so like 20,30 years of experience, and when they pickpocket its like a simple brush, or bump past you. And then they have the really bad ones that do it like Altair did, stick out the hand for like 5 minutes and hope they get close enough. That way you don't always know whats going to happen.

It's not like he was stabbing all that much to the chest. He was just sort of slashing to inflict as many wounds as he could (that's what it looked like to me). Shallow cuts wouldn't kill someone that fast. Altair stabs deep into the neck / chest cavity instead....much quicker I suppose.

I think you might have it there. Kind of like a mini game, as you're blended with the crowd a button will pop up on the screen and when you hit it you either defend from a pickpocket or you pickpocket somebody.
