View Full Version : Edward Kenway's hood

Am I the only one really angry about the lack of a beaked hood? I mean, we all fought so incredibly hard to get Connor's hood put back up after the end of AC3 that they actually listened to us. Without the hood none of us felt like we were playing an assassin's creed title. Idk. It's such a unique, menacing look and has been a huge part of AC since the beginning that I'm just hoping there's some kind of an explanation for the complete lack of it in ACBF. Or that enough people feel the same way I do about it and they perhaps listen to us again. Okay, rant over.

I like that they opted out of the beak this time!

As long as there's a hood, it doesn't bother me that much. Aveline's lack of hood, on the other hand, was legitimately annoying.

I like his outfit the best so far, looks like Prince of Persia almost!

The white hood is the iconic part. I like a little definition to the tip of the hood, but I'm indifferent as to whether or not it's a full on beak. Some people complain that the AC protagonist's outfit always stand out from the crowd, and that a real assassin wouldn't bring attention to himself in that way. While there may be some truth to that, it doesn't bother me because most of the outfits are bad@$$.

Shao yun(?) didn't have a beak either.

Honestly It doesn't bother me. I mean he has a hood. Good enough for me. I really don't see why all the assassins have the same looking attire, it's a dead giveaway if you ask me. HEY I'M GONNA KILLZ YOU!? (I know it's symbolic but still)

I'm not big into it. As long as they look awesome and I enjoy the gameplay and story, I'm really not bothered such trivial things. -- Like Haytham for example until we Learned of him being a Templar.

Does not make any difference to me what so ever he has the Hood the hidden blade thats enough for me, the beak is mediocre in my eyes.
