When people can't tell the difference between your city during the 3rd Crusade and 2013. It's time to get your **** together.

It was a news segment about Damascus history mostly during that time. Wich was relevant due to the war that threatens the land

I believe that while it is very old, they were very advanced for their time. The old architecture withstood the test of time and still looks beautiful.

They have the technology to renovate, and have electricity etc., but why change the look of it when it already has much culture and looks amazing?

not the syrian people... the Greeks and Romans who built that country and the arabs just moved in after killing the byzzies
User avatar #102 to #64 - coolcalx (05/14/2013) [-]
bro, the Arabs were there first, THEN the Greeks conquered the land, and THEN the Romans, and THEN the Arabs took it back again from the Byzantine empire (which was the remnants of the Roman empire). it was built by Arabs

Wasnt it taken back last by the Turks?
User avatar #122 to #120 - coolcalx (05/14/2013) [-]
yes, the Ottoman Turks.

however, the Ottomans (in the region) were primarily ethnically Arab, I do believe.
#129 to #122 - cauhgon (05/14/2013) [-]
Actually Turks are ethnically from around Georgia (the country not the state ...) or russia I think
User avatar #133 to #129 - coolcalx (05/14/2013) [-]
the Turks in the region

the Turks were a group of pastoralist people who assimilated others into their growing empire, so in the area, the Turks comprised of many of the native people who were ethnically Arab

We should get a lady assassin for one of these games. Not one sexualized like this picture, obviously, but an actual humanoid person who is female. I just think that would be neat.
User avatar #59 to #57 - dedaluminus (05/14/2013) [-]
It had best be set in the 1970's or later. Being a woman in any of the time periods in previous assassins creed games sucked.
#60 to #59 - creepyunclebob (05/14/2013) [-]
Unless you were one of the female assassins that already existed in all of those games. In real life, it would suck to be in those eras, but if a Native American can walk the streets of colonial America and basically win the Revolutionary war by virtue of looking badass, I think a woman can make it too.
User avatar #58 to #52 - sirbustyabals (05/14/2013) [-]
There should be a samurai, or ninja. Based in Feudal Japan.
User avatar #61 to #58 - tkfourtwoone (05/14/2013) [-]
No, there shouldn't be. Because it wouldn't make any ******* sense.
User avatar #62 to #61 - sirbustyabals (05/14/2013) [-]
Well I never really played the games, but it would be cool to see him as a ninja version and a samurai version.
User avatar #65 to #62 - tkfourtwoone (05/14/2013) [-]
No. Just... no.

Japan's already got its assassins. They're called ******* NINJAS.

All this desire to see AC in Japan is just 12 year-old fanboyism for cool stuff, like ninjas, samurais, katanas, shurikens and whatever.

In Feudal times, Japan was mostly cut off from the rest of the world (well, except for resisting a ******* Mongol Invasion). There would be no connection whatsoever between the plot of the game (remember, Assassins vs Templars, phylosophical stuff like "free will") and the setting.

As a sidenote, ever since I played AC2 I prayed that one of the next games will be placed in America's Independence War. And ******************** , guess when AC3's setting is placed?
That's because it makes perfect sense for a conspiracy story: a young country's need for independence, the whole backstory of the Freemasons and the Founding Fathers (which were allegedly Templars)... it just provided a background for a ******** of historical figures to be messed with.

What would you have in Japan? Daimyos fighting for territory. Wow, really ******* interesting. Not to mention that "Feudal" Japan means quite a large timespan, whereas shinobi (ninjas) started being known (as a group) around 15th century, in the Sengoku period.
Not to mention that nobody in Japan had the technology necessary to create one of the trademark items of the AC franchise: THE ******* HIDDEN BLADE.

Now a Chinese Assassin (as shown on AC: Embers) makes a whole lot more sense.

I mostly just want to see what one would look like as a ninja or a samurai, I don't really care for the games.

Why don't they make like a ninja game with the same engine only tweaked a little. Completely separate game, but with pretty similar mechanics
User avatar #86 to #85 - tkfourtwoone (05/14/2013) [-]
Because it would suck?...

The only thing worthy of the idea is the potential to climb architecturally accurate buildings (because, let's face it, AC3 aside Ubi really has made great work out of historical cities).
The combat would just be.... no, let's not go there.
User avatar #88 to #86 - ddemiddon (05/14/2013) [-]
Just shooting from the hip. I mean They got really good stealth in AC, there's not really really a good ninja stealth game out. And like I said, tweak the game, ninjas never really were in open combat like you see in AC. I don't really see how bad it could be aside from combat
User avatar #89 to #88 - tkfourtwoone (05/14/2013) [-]
"They got really good stealth in AC"

No. Just no.
If you want a rather decent 3rd person stealth game, go play Splinter Cell (the first ones). Now THOSE are stealth.

And if you REALLY want a good ninja game, I dunno, ever heard of Mark of a Ninja?
User avatar #90 to #89 - ddemiddon (05/14/2013) [-]
It makes me sad that I've never heard of that. And I realize that Splinter Cell is awesome, one of my favorite games, but it's not as stealth based as it used to be, I'm trying to look forward.

**** , I don't know what I'm saying anymore.
User avatar #93 to #90 - tkfourtwoone (05/14/2013) [-]
Look, trust me, I like AC games (AC3 left aside), but that series has nothing in common with the concept of "stealth", it's just partially advertised as such.

The only "stealthy" part I can think of is walking on catwalks and beams above enemies and some levels where you can see a simple pattern of patrols and walls that you can hide behind.
But for the love that all is good and great, AC games don't even have a corner-cover mechanic. From what I heard, Deus Ex does a much better job at that.

Oh, not to mention Batman: Arkham series. Now THOSE are stealth with A REALLY GOOD combat mechanism.
User avatar #94 to #93 - ddemiddon (05/14/2013) [-]
Yeah, I get it. I was stuck in between the 12 year old mindset of what was cool, and the 20 year old mindset of what would be cool now. I like ninjas, they're just represented in the wrong way. And I love AC, and I got caught on what I like the most, and that was free running.
User avatar #96 to #94 - tkfourtwoone (05/14/2013) [-]
Now, yes, the free running part (the main theme of AC, honestly) is mostly done OK. Even though I hated the **** out of Rome, from my point of view it's a level design nightmare, I could barely make out a free running fluid path that was longer than 50 paces.

However, Firenze.... ah, Firenze... and climbing the Hagia Sophia in Constantinopole... priceless!

My bad,

Anyway she is a ninja and Jun can be a Japanese name Shao on the other hand no
User avatar #77 to #76 - tkfourtwoone (05/14/2013) [-]
...she is Chinese. She CAN'T be a ninja/shinobi, because they only existed in Japan.

And no, Jun can hardly be a Japanese name. It really isn't that hard to make a difference between a Chinese and a Japanese name. Heck, it's not hard to distinguish between Japanese and Korean names.

I understand her nationality I'm speaking out of fact ninja have some Chinese origins he have utilized the skills of ninja e same way samurai utilized. Not all ninja had the same goals, some worked for money as hired assassins, spies, and infiltrators,

Well, it's not as bad as using combat footage (from a distance) from ArmA II, this is accurate enough and an honest mistake, while combat footage is pretty misleading.
