Game: Assassin’s Creed Unity (PS4 Pro)
Memory: Le Roi est Mort (Assassinate King of Beggars)
Style: The Hidden Blade / No Tools / No Detects

Arno Dorian has no need of extraneous devices or gadgetry. One blade, one Assassin, against the King of Beggars’ entire “royal” guard. Many of the King’s subjects stand in vigilant defense of their sovereign. It is not enough; as if by a phantom, Regicide is carried out.

I recently upped my thoughts on AC Origins in vid-form. I only realized at the very end, after uploading, that I didn't end up talking about Combat at all even though it's one of the things I intended to touch upon. Sucks. I'll have to make another one talking just about fighting, but I guess it kind of slipped my mind among all the other cool stuff I saw. If people don't want to watch, here's a transcript:

Explore Venice all you want in Assassins Creed Brotherhood. This exploit was told to me by the Youtuber Ham Boom.

[AC2] Farewell Francesco - No Kills / Target Only

Ezio Auditore decides it would be less exhausting to find a more difficult, alternative method of climbing the Palazzo de la Signoria, than it would be to fight and kill all of Francesco's guards. He's got a better way of getting to the man who threatened all of Florence. And none of his guards need to die.

I use one of Aurel's routes for this video, because he's awesome and Assassins tend to use what others have contributed pretty often.

A quick and easy way to beat the "Farewell Francesco" memory without killing any of Francesco's guards. It does have the side-effect of making them feel very stupid, however. Then again, an Assassin's purview definitely involves striking from totally unexpected directions. You can make NPCs fall off of things they're climbing by jumping into them. I use this to let me get a very fast Assassination, else he'd run around for an annoying amount of time.

[AC Syndicate] One Good Deed - Ghost and Reaper

Style: Pacifist / Non-Lethal / No Kills / Ghost
Additional Modifier(s): No Smoke Bombs

Evie Frye must take back from the Blighters the deed to Attaway Transport, which Ed Bayley, the only remaining omnibus builder in the city, needs in order for him and his allies to begin their company. Evie feels this is a good opportunity to practice her stealth skills, and treats the guards in and around the factory like toys for her own amusement and training. She lays hands on no one, steals back the deed, and leaves the area without ever causing a single disturbance.

This mission is super Ghostable because all it's about is pickpocketing an item off of a guard. Pretty satisfying stuff, and I felt like using no Smoke at all in this mission. I'll usually not place such restrictions on myself, because Smoke increases the flow of a video and therefore also increases its watchability for my viewers, but this time it wasn't much of an issue to go Smokeless and to just use some classic Stealth. Pretty satisfied with this one, definitely one of my favorite checkpoints in the whole game. A damn shame that it's immediately preceded by a loud and boisterous horse chase against some enemies during which you have to kill a bunch of them while smashing into everything all throughout the city. This checkpoint, though, this checkpoint is lovely.

AC Syndicate - No Upgrades/No Leveling [Full Commentated Playthrough]

Some time ago I posted a playthrough of myself beating all of Assassin's Creed Unity without upgrading anything or leveling up at all. I would only really advise watching that one if you really want to, because the microphone quality isn't as great as my newer videos. Actually, the run I'm about to post right now doesn't have fantastic mic quality until Episode 5, when I started taking what I was doing much more seriously and invested a decent amount of money into getting a Blue Yeti microphone. Despite that, it's something a few people here were quite interested in. I don't know if this will still be the case by now, because it took me a while. I actually halted production on this playthrough until I bought a good microphone once I recorded Episode 4, because I was just not happy with how my vocal quality sounded, and I was not willing to produce more commentary without a decent microphone. Suffice it to say that I got one, and here's the run.

Tamir Quits His Job

Back to the Future exploit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WChyupk-afE

Found that if Tamir sees a dead body, he'll go back to the souk and do his scripted route/speeches. During the scene he teleported to one of the merchants (first time I did this he didn't teleport but rather was out of synch with the scene). Afterward he walks away.

One character AI flaw in the early AC games is that enemies can't do anything if they are crouching on a railing/beam/other climbable object while you are hanging below. This was changed later in the series by giving them the ability to stomp down on you in that situation, but in the meanwhile enemies jumped to their deaths as a result. Here are some examples in AC2.
