she's my favorite Female Assassin now, though that's not much saying since there are only two girls currently in Brotherhood multiplayer... xD

Her weapon is cool though, plus the way she assassinated... Laughing out loud

This new trailer features not only co-op multiplayer assassinations but you get a glimpse of the Engineer character. As expected, he looks a lot like Leonardo da Vinci.

I already answered something like this before and nothing much has changed from what I thought then... ^^;

Alliance seems to be not available for us now, i think it'll be when everyone has access to the Beta... =/

One thing that bugs me is the Counter system AKA the humiliation, it's not that good really...
It's a bit slow to respond and it only seems to work on the ground so if your on a roof running would your best bet... xD;

(I'm quickly noticing who are my pursuer but sadly the counter system had failed on me so many times it's sad... =/)

Another thing, I'm not sure if this is common knowledge(Been a while since I cached up with the news) but you start with one skill...
I'm not sure if it's random what you start with but I got Morph when I started at Level 1, at Level 3 or 4 I got the Dash skill...
I'll update more on what I get as I level up... =)
EDIT:
I was wrong a bit, here's the list for the skills apparnetly:

Ability: Poison

One thing I quickly learned while playing this is to RUN THE HELL AWAY when you do a kill...! >=P
10 out of 9 times, your pursuers(I got 4 following me once and it wasn't pretty) will be right behind you...
Hiding isn't as effective, cause a lot of times I catch people doing so when I'm the roof's which by that time have two thirds of the players on it as the game of cat and mouse goes on... xD

I also hate when you get your kill stolen, you sometimes would stay target less for nearly 30 seconds until the game gives you another, more then enough time for your pursuer to catch you... =/

That's what I have to say about the game, I only been playing for 4 hours but that's what I can assess from it all... =)

I'll do say this, Hiding is a bit better in a closed area map as I've discovered recently... xD

I once killed three targets by blending with a group of NPC that were Engineers that was near the door and my targets got killed as they passed me every time... 8D
And thanks to having multiple clones nearby, my pursuers would always end up killing the NPC's beside me... xD

It looks like a long thin dagger, but I can't be sure... xD;
I'll watch in the character selection screen and take a closer look at it... :3

EDIT:
I was wrong, AGAIN... xD;
It was a medieval looking pair of Pliers with long edges... xD

Also, I just noticed each of these characters have a background and their own name...! =0

The Priest:
Brother Ristoro vowed a life piety and poverty, but practiced neither. A paranoid, dangerous man.

The Nobleman:
A sycophantic noble, deformed in both body and mind, Silvestro Sabbatini answers only to Cesare himself.

The Prowler:
His blade imitating the lethal methods of the Assassins, La Lupo takes his victims from the shadows.

The Courtesan:
Fiora Cavzza's Extraordinary talents earned her a place in Cesare Borgia's social circle.

The Doctor:
Ravaging the poor districts of Rome, Malfatto preys on those unfortunate enough to be caught unaware.

The Executioner:
A natural ally for the Borgia, Il Carnefice kills to the roar of an approving crowd.

The Engineer:
Gaspar de la Crioix is a master weapons engineer as well as a expert marksman.

The Smuggler:
Supplying the Templars with secret contraband, Lia de Russo lied and murdered her way into some of the best deals of the century.

I have, and yes it's a Razor as you said~ xD

He's fun, but for some reason the Engineer feels perfect for me... x3
I even heard some guys nicknaming him as I was playing Mario, awesome fun~

The Prowler's name (along with his appearance) makes him like the "anti-La Volpe" (maybe his evil younger brother??? SCANDAL!!!)

They did say that most of the MP characters were assassination targets in the campaign, so it makes sense that they'd have actual names rather than just titles.

I just googled to see if the engineer was a real person, doesn't seem like it sadly Sad

I doubt they would slander any real dead person's name by claiming they were part of an evil order of corrupt people seeking to dominate the world 500 years ago.

Why would they stop doing that now? Robert de Sable, Rodrigo Borgia, etc. etc.

I did not realize this but after hearing the names of all the multiplayer characters it makes sense that they'd be targets in the single player campaign. I really like the story justification for multiplayer where Abstergo's training their people to be assassins.

I can't wait for AC3 when Desmond goes up against this Templar hit squad. Smile

Never mind.

Now I feel stupid. Forget I said anything.

So is the Smuggler available in all versions? I've pre-ordered the GAME Limited Edition which comes with the Officer but I'm still tempted by the Codex Edition...

Seems like it, in the Beta you need to raise your level to use her, so most likely she's be there with the game for all... =D

I'm just getting to 12 so still far away from getting her... xD;
5 levels to go... Tongue

Also guys, have you read this...?

Yeah, I spent some time playing it, but it gets boring after a while... Action Points regenerate wayyy to slowly.

I just received an email from a marketing agency asking me to promote Assasin’s Creed: Project Legacy to my "readers" here on THB. FLAE&#039;s eye roll

Okay. Here's the link (Facebook membership required). Knock yourselves out, readers.

It's alright to pass the time, but like SBI said, it takes far too long to regenerate the Action Points.

I finally got it to load last night and it's...meh. I wish it was more interactive and not on facebook. I'm just hoping that we can send it to our Gamertag/PSN because I started it on my facebook that has a different e-mail than my LIVE one. I think I'll have to restart it on another profile. haha

Oh yeah thanks I found it.

There is one on Gamestop's official Facebook page Smile Not exactly sure what it gives you though. Some random ability (represented by a laptop) to work for and contact Abstergo...?

I'm curious what the Project Legacy bonus is aswell, could be just more money or a 5 minute side mission.

Or an exclusive armor set, since they've been pushing those for ACB.

I heard somewhere that it's either an armor set or extra map (not sure if they meant multiplayer or singleplayer).

Probably singleplayer, a new map for multiplayer would be no fun if no one else had it Tongue
