The hookblade replaces one of the hidden blades, so I wonder if the remaining hidden blade can be upgraded to another hookblade. I imagine it wouldn't do a lot for combat, but it would enhance a load out of platforming if certain areas required two hookblades.

I have revived this thread so you all may lay witness to the newest trailer for Revelations. I am quite unable to wait for this game; I need it right now.

I saw that trailer, and couldn't help but think of 300 when Ezio kicked that statue off the ledge.  :P

But in all seriousness, I'm going to Gamestop tomorrow to preorder the game. I normally don't preorder games that I know will be abundant on the first day, but the more I look at the Signature Edition, the more I want that cool sword and the extra missions.

I started to play AC2. It's fun.

But I think it's going to take a hiatus. I just got Dark Souls! And nothing beats Dark Souls!

I rarely get games on release day these days, but I just couldn't hold myself!

soooo good!

I'm still playing Demon's Souls, how does Dark Souls rank in comparison, if you don't mind me asking?

I just picked up Dark Souls yesterday.  I haven't played Demon's Souls, since it's PS3 exclusive and I'm on an Xbox.

I can say, however, that Dark Souls is thoroughly raping my ass, though I'm not sure if that's a good thing yet.  

Not a fan of the controls.  Shoulder bumpers as the main attack and defend buttons are very odd--I've never played another game that had a similar control scheme.  I've only played for about an hour though, so I'm hoping it grows on me and that my hands get used to the strange control scheme.

All I can say is that Demon's Souls is an awesome game. If it's any indication to how Dark Souls is gonna be, I think I'll like it. But I heard that they took out health restorative items and replaced them with a 'canteen' of some sort, that you have to refill from time to time. It sounds like that's going to make it harder than hoarding all of your herbs and potions for a boss battle.  :P

Revelations is almost here; are you guys excited? I can barely contain my excitement for this game. Each new trailer makes me more excited than the last! Once this comes out, I'm probably going to be MIA from all my jobs...

I did a double-take when I first saw that on Gamestop TV. I was like "...woah, what the heck?!".

I did the same thing. I thought I heard that it was singing that and I was confused, and I think I just turned around and watched the television with games in my hand I was supposed to be putting away. I may have been trying to talk to a customer at the time as well. XD
