I guess there will be no hook blade in AC3, is there even hidden blades?

Obviously there are duel blades and no useless hookblade.

I take it you haven't watched much in the way of AC3 vids. Yes, Connor has a Hidden Blade in AC3.

2 hidden blades, may I add. In the IGN demo, he flicked 2.

Obviously yes. It added noting in terms of combat, and it functioned similar too a ability we have. Only really difference it made were the zip lines.

only bits and pieces

I liked ziping about with the hookblade, it was one of the best bits of that game.

I'll let other people respond to this. I don't have the patience....

Thank you, much appreciated. Anything you think we could improve on?

Bits a pieces? what? he has 2 hidden blades. Like always.

I don't remember hearing "it has two parts you see," when does that happen? Probably didn't hear it.

In AC:R, when Yusuf first introduces you too the hookblade.
''It has two parts you see, the hook and the blade'' I never knew that /sarcasm.

that is the problem, they´re all great. Which means i (we?) don´t have anything to say except "good job" or something boring like that

I'll add the obvious post of saying "Good job as always Esco". Really though do i even need to say it anymore? :P. Although i will anyway :D.

When will we see a Flintlock Pistol episode?

Just watched it and yeah they are there, but I did notice Connor needs a accent, he sounds awfully generic.

Another great video! kinda sad to see no hookblade in AC3....I loved its navigation purposes

My only criticisms is maybe making the picture box bigger? it seems sometimes it is quite small, maybe I should just zoom in or something lol
and maybe divide up the video a little more?

like letting the viewer know when your transitioning from the weapon description to the real world history

The hook blade was awesome! Too bad it's not in AC3 :(

TheFrontLine
07-14-2012, 09:02 PM
I think the hookblade was only 'awesome' because they designed Constantinople to utilize it.

Indeed. Machinima decided to feature it, which was nice of them. They've taken quite an interest in the series and want it as an Approved Show on the network, which i can't complain about at all :D

You've got a lot more weapons to go and when AC3's round there'll be even more!

Yup. And we are always looking to improve the episodes, so always feel free to let me know what you think and give feedback. I appreciate it all :D

how about a video about Altairs dagger(the one in ac1) ? That would be interesting, a little info about his fighting style, why he holds it backwards for example. Think about it man.

I think he holds it the Ice pick style or whatever it was called?

Okay that's it, I'm not letting hasoon have the final word on every thread so I'm posting this. And If hasoon posts then I will post, immature maybe, but Im starting a revolution against hasoons control of these forums and this is how it starts. Anyway:

how about doing some vids on leonardos machines? That could be interesting.

HaSoOoN-MHD
07-15-2012, 08:59 AM
LOL. Ignite the Revolution.
I think the only ones he can do are the flying machine and the tank.

You just don't get it do you?

Do not reply to this hasoon. Because I will just reply back. He can do all of them if he wanted, all of them are real designs which leonardo da Vinci came up with himself, he could even do the parachute

HaSoOoN-MHD
07-15-2012, 09:14 AM
The Parachute, Tank and Flying Machine are the ones I know of that he came up with.

freddie_1897

They are all in an assassins creed game, therefore they are all eligible for a episode in a series called the weapons of assassins creed.

These are just my ideas, why are you pushing so hard to try and dispel them? I don't see me calling any of your ideas rubbish, have some respect for other peoples opinions.

HaSoOoN-MHD
07-15-2012, 09:23 AM
Where did I state that they are rubbish? but I just cant see him fitting any historical info into any of them other than the Flying Machine and Tank and Parachute.
PS: You will be free of me once AC III comes out.

freddie_1897
07-15-2012, 09:33 AM
He came up with the designs for a boat and a 8 barrelled machine gun as well, if a guy coming up with the designs for a machine gun in the 16th century aren't historical then I dont know what is.
If your reply to this is that they aren't historical then don't bother replying, it is your opinion vs mine, and neither opinion is right or wrong, in the end it is escos opinion that matters seeing as he's the one who makes the videos

HaSoOoN-MHD
07-15-2012, 09:37 AM
Wait, he actually designed the Machine gun?
I thought there sketches purely for the Tank, Flying Machine and Parachute.
I would like a Flintlock Pistol or the Bow.

Google leonardo da vinci inventions

Ah, he did make the machine gun. I believe I missed that.
Maybe an episode on the Syrian Sword?

freddie_1897

Or perhaps one on the bombs?

There are many types of bombs, so it may work. Tho the Smoke Bombs may be interesting.

So basically what you've done, is take my post, and worded it differently for the sake of getting your post count up.

No. I said there are many types of bombs, so it may work, MAY, maybe the amount of bombs will make it a bit harder.
And you did not suggest the Smoke Bombs.
Last post here, just clarification.

Keyword, I said he could do one on the bombs, of which a smoke bomb is one. Therefore I kind of did suggest it

Ahem, back on topic...

I loved the hookblade! It was by far one of my favourite additions to ACR. The sheer amount of new things you could do with it made it very useful. It's even my preferred weapon in combat.

Nice vid as always.

I really felt like the hookblade was...forced, I guess. It was just there too be there. Other than the ziplines, I honestly did not like it.
