I was all ready to be stoked for fishing minigames.

That looks really neat. This is the first thing that makes me say "Maybe Revelations will be worth buying."

@ajamafalous: You're welcome for the tie in. ;)

Hm, neat idea, I'm all for new ways to get around. Still probably won't play this game until early next year.

This game suddenly looks a little crappy in the graphics department to me. I'm sure I'm a bit late coming to this realisation - but seriously, the previous games always looked pretty damn good. This one seems rough.

EDIT; I think my brain's just being weird. It looked a little better the second time.

A hookblade you say? Sounds dumb, sign me up!

Where your hookblade? 
Only cool kids have hooblades, you must suck!

It amazes me how Ubisoft keeps adding layer upon payer of ''new'' gadgets while they won't fix the easy-as-shit-that-it-gets-boring combat. I'll just stand still and mash RT + X to counter. I'll still win in this game too?

"The standard Ottoman hookblade has two parts: the hook and the blade."

Brilliant.

I think the throws Ezio did with the hookblade looked really cool.

You're still standing still when in a fight? You do realize that the more AC games that come out, the more Ubisoft encourages the player to attack first, right? By the time Brotherhood came out, combat became more about murdering everyone around you as quickly as possible.

It won't let me enter my birthday and I can't watch the video. I wish it still defaulted to your age being 21

Seems like gauntlets with retractable blades are really going around these days

Posted by fl4tlined

so wait are you trying to tell me this new gadget is combining the length of a hook and the deadliness of a blade?

im so confused ubisoft this plus your increadibly hard combat make dark souls look like childs play ;_;...

Posted by Slaker117

Looks like fun.

Nice pre-order bonus...

Hmmmm it looks like this is the hook that I needed to make me go out and buy this game.

Posted by SHADOWINFINITE

"Where is your hook blade?" Ezio needs to get back in the game, old but more awesome!

Posted by deadly_polo

So if I'm right, the hookblade is a Hook and a Blade. Tbh did not see that coming

Posted by jtman54179

So it's a hook AND a blade.

Posted by Hardiharr

So... let me get this straight. His hidden stabbing wrist-blade is now hooked and rounded at the end? The one on his strong hand, no less? Wouldn't that lessen the stabbiness of his wrist-blade? I am perturbed by this development.

I don't know... that hookblade looks fishy to me!

Posted by Hendrixx

Posted by PrioritySeven

Oh, so THAT'S why it's called "hook blade".

I actualy like it without the cape, I like how they've redisgned his outfit unlike AC2 to Brotherhood.

Alright, Ezio, let me break this down for you. Hook plus blade equals hook-blade. Got it? Takes a while for some people.

Posted by partoftheproblem

What's that Ezio? A wristblade? Pfff, those are so last year. Everyone's using HOOKblades now!

Posted by DoctorSmashman

I was kinda thinking of skipping this one, but it's starting to come together.

Posted by Raven10

@Burglarize: I think it is your memory getting the better of you. I am playing Brotherhood right now and this game looks much better. The thing is that Brotherhood looked only decent when it was released and looks subpar right now. Since they are using the same engine, I'm sure Revelations will look slightly better while still being far behind the best looking games coming out this holiday. Remember that many games this year are using new or vastly updated engines (Resistance 3, Gears 3, Battlefield 3, Skyrim, Rage, Crysis 2 etc) so using the same engine that they've been using since 2009 is going to look a bit dated next to the new stuff coming out this year.

What's next!? Hook swords!?

Posted by Ersanven

I read that as fisting minigame. I am disappoint Ezio. I am disappoint.:(

Anyone else genuinely disappointed that there's no fishing minigame?

Posted by MeatSim

That man is a excellent hook blade salesman.

Posted by Neurotic_X

Posted by Eyz

Love this hook-new mechanic. Looks pretty fun :)

Posted by Crake

Hook blade is about the most generic name I could think of.
