actually, the assassins were a minority splinter group of Shi'a Muslims called Nizari who were very small, and therefore could not defend themselves in open skirmishes. they resorted to assassinating enemy leaders, and got hated on alot because of it. THIS is why they were called hashashiun, or hash smokers, because their enemies were sippin mad hatorade, not because they actually did it.

also, AC's al-Mualim (the Teacher) was looooosely based on the Nizari leader ambiguously known as 'the Old Man of the Mountain.'


Source: I am majoring in the department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, and my professor was the historical consultant for the first AC game. boom.


also, never believe anything in a Dan Brown book.

this was during the first days of the xbox 360, mind you. When to much cleavage was still some what unsightly, not needed in games.

The Xbox 360 was released on November 22, 2005, in the United States and Canada; December 2, 2005, in Europe and December 10, 2005

mass effect came out in 2007 and the media coverage of the sex scene first starded in 2008

Actually in FO1 (And 2) if you had low intelligence your character would literally be a complete retard and every single NPC you talk to will have different reactions according to what retarded **** you spouted out. It's quite fun.

Yes and it made the game a lot harder

I think Mass Effect got more flak for having an inter-species gay sex scene more than just a sex scene. I hate how America hates sex so much but extreme violence is alright.

It's based on the bible, there's plenty of violence in the bible, but gay interspecies sex is not in the bible last I checked.

That's why American media has no problem with violence.

Fallout characters with less than 4 intelligence CAN speak to NPC's, but will behave like a mentally handicapped person.

It results in some hilarious dialogue but locks out maybe 2/3 of the available quests in the game.

As I remember you speak with grunts and various other sounds, right?

that first one is a common misunderstanding, or rather is very controversial (everyone has their idea on it) the original Assassins are called "Assasiyoon" اساسيون meaning The Essentials or Bases, they were a cult born in Masyaf (the clash of swords) that were against the crusade, however Marco Polo called them "Hashashin" probably because he pronounced it wrong or something, and since there were barely any documents other than the ones in native arabic on them (they worked in secret) that document by Marco is the one that gave them into light, because he was the first (or his crew) to travel around the world.

If you go back to AC 1 they are actually using the Arabic history not the Marco Polo version, calling them "Assasyon" instead of "Hashashin" (which the prince of persia movie ironically did) , and pronouncing the names right, too bad the game was repetitive as **** .

I agree, AC was boring as **** . Played it through once then I sold it.

the sequels were a lot better, but they were way too easy, you can kill almost everyone with just counter attacking with the hidden blade.
User avatar #234 to #227 - brothergrimm ONLINE (11/02/2012) [-]
the newest one is much more complicated than that.
User avatar #242 to #234 - pulluspardus (11/02/2012) [-]
I've not tried that one.
User avatar #244 to #242 - brothergrimm ONLINE (11/02/2012) [-]
it was only released a few days ago but the counter kill only works on the basic enemies. if they're the slightest bit above that, find a new tactic because failed counter kills hurt
User avatar #233 to #227 - fizzor (11/02/2012) [-]
So I have heard, although a game that's too easy does not sound very intriguing. I might still purchase them some day.

Ohhhhhhh yesh. Hashashins you say.

In Fallout 2 when you go with low int 3 or 4, there is one character you can talk to.Tor in Den, the radscorpions are killing off his bramin. He too has 3 or 4 int. And you talk about physics and deep philosophical things.
#254 to #209 - buttpoetaytoe (11/02/2012) [-]
Lmao! And he was totally retarded with higher intelligence, that's hilarious anon :D

I still play fallout 2 lol
#196 - thexxtalonxx (11/02/2012) [-]
So many of these "facts" are just ******** . But where to begin...

#1 Mass Effect was not almost banned. In fact the only people who flipped the hell out were News outlets (FOX News) once crazy soccer moms found out about the sex scenes. Mass Effect had already sold over a million copies by then and was approved by the ESRB board.

#2 In Fallout you could converse with people if you had an Intelligence of 4 or lower. You just got gibberish instead of actual words and you had to randomly guess which conversation options were correct. Or have memorized which ones to pick.

Starcraft: Ghost was started nearly 10 years ago.
In 2006, Blizz dubbed it as being on "indefinite hold", though work ceased in 2004.
Its been considered "vaporware" ever since, and I'm sad at blizzard for it...
If they released it 10 years from now, Id still buy it in a heartbeat :(
And I dont even have SC2 xD I just love the SC1 ghosts that much :(


No pic to relate, so have a kitty.

He describes how the "Old Man of the Mountain" (Sabbah) would drug his young followers with hashish, lead them to a "paradise", and then claim that only he had the means to allow for their return. Perceiving that Sabbah was either a prophet or some kind of magic man, his disciples, believing that only he could return them to "paradise", were fully committed to his cause and willing to carry out his every request

I MISS THE OLD WARCRAFT GAMES.

I used to play those for hours at my grandparents when it was too dark to go outside.

I downloaded mods for it... Naruto, Dragonball, Megaman... Man those were great stories and I liked the skins and actions too.

I still play Warcraft 3 every now and then. Most of the games hosted are just DotA maps though.

Pretty sure everything in Assasins' creed is based on real events, just from a different perspective. For example, the Borgia family from AC 2 and Brotherhood really existed, really did all the crap you see them do ingame, were famous for all the political killings you see them perform and even died in the same way as in the game...............minus the hooded italian.

Basically the whole game is about what could have possibly happened.
#158 to #127 - vorrundenaus (11/02/2012) [-]
I just love the basis of the main characters, Ezio was an actually Florentine noble who had his family executed, but after that he just vanished right from the textbooks, the man hid from history like he never existed at all, and then he pops up again in Florence when he died, like he was always there, just hiding or some **** . I mean he probably just hid out in another city for years and then went back and died, just a totally normal life, but it's definitely like what if?

That's exactly the sort of thing that makes me love this game. They just put in so much effort into making it look as if it had really happened that you're no longer sure what to believe in history class.
