Dev. Diary for Assassin's Creed

Dev. Diary for Assassin's Creed

A new Developer's Diary of the stealth videogame Assassin's Creed has been given to us by Ubisoft. Patrice Désilets talks about the importance of the fight system in the game, a key element that main character Altaïr will have to master in order to escape hasardous situations. Only recently has the game achieved gold status and will infiltrate the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 systems November 16 2007. The PC build will be available later in 2008.

Looks great, you can be a badass just by getting the timing right instead of learning combos.

Did he say his name was "zsi zsi zsi zsa"?
Anyway, funny seeing the "timing based counters"..there doesn't seem to be a hack slash element though which may help keep people from mashing to victory ..Heavenly sword had both, unfortunately most people didn't take the time to notice that the "TBC" even existed..best part of the game really..next to Kia shooting arrows through fire and hitting an enemy in the balls.

I thought he said that too.

I'm really hoping the videos they have been showing are on easy. The circle of guards standing around you doing nothing but waiting for one of their buddies to attack you and die is retarded. The scene of running past/through 5 guards is lame too. If the combat AI is not any better than that there are going to be allot of disappointed gamers.

But it does sound like the combat is more than just one button as supposedly leaked from that Japanese mag. Unless the other buttons are just for style as it sounds like they may be.

Jade is too busy with the game and too busy to care about horny people like you.

She cares about game she is making, not to stand infront of camera.

yeah, but if you complimented every 10 seconds, it would get pretty annoying.
