He Forged Assassin's Creed's Wristblade, Then Stabbed Stuff With It

He Forged Assassin's Creed's Wristblade, Then Stabbed Stuff With It

FINALLY. Long have I waited for Man At Arms to make the iconic hidden wristblade from Assassin's Creed, better known as one of the raddest weapons in video game history. Now he has, and he has not disappointed.

At AWE me, master weaponsmith Tony Swatton has crafted the iconic spring-loaded wristblade from the Assassin's Creed games with an amazing attention to detail. He's also made a gorgeous pirate's cutlass, in honour of the upcoming pirate-themed Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

At the end of the video, as usual, his demonstrators test the weaponry out on a number of household objects. I heard that can of energy drink was a Templar agent anyway.

    I don't know why he always attacks glass in his demos. It just shatters the same as it would if I hit it with any object at all at that speed..?

    Ubisoft are going all out with the promotional push for this game aren't they? First the Vice documentary and now getting Man At Arms to do this for them.

      Don't forget the Miracle of Sound song "Beneath the Black Flag"!

    Do we really need an article for every single gaming weapon Tony Swatton makes? AWE me is great, sure (I'm subscribed and watch most of their videos). So make one article telling people to subscribe, maybe another in 6 months or so telling new people about it.

    That's really all that's needed. People who care already watch the videos (thus these regular articles are pointless) people who don't care...don't care.

    That aside, this one is pretty cool but not as interesting as some of ther previous ones imo. Mostly just because I've seen heaps oh well-made (though not quite this good) hidden-blades before.

      You don't earn as much revenue with two articles every six months as you do with six every six months. They're a business and they have workers to pay. If you don't want to read it, don't read it. It's not that hard to not click a link.

        Well why not post an article for every youtube video then? perhaps another for the comments and tweets in response to those videos (Patricia is so fond of Tweet articles).

        It's got nothing to do with clicking or not clicking a link, It'd just be nice to have less pointless articles to scroll past on the front page. As for making money, perhaps they could try posting more articles with actual substance rather then repeating old ones.

        I still can't understand how a site with such obvious problems as Kotaku US (enough to be considered a horrible joke to most of the industry, second only to IGN) is essentially copy-pasted into Kotaku AU (one of the only 'Australian' games news sites, not to mention having a great team) and yet any feedback, questions or problems related to Kotaku US content is simply ignored, downvoted or hated on...
        Are you truly that against change or do you just like scrolling through articles with single photos, broken videos, horrible English, repeated content, twitter arguments, American politics, random crap the Bashcraft found online, repeated content, etc?

          I like kotaku posting these. Deal with it.

          Well why not post an article for every youtube video then?

          Because that would poison your audience completely. If people were that interested in only YouTube content, they would go there. This is a stupid argument and you should feel that way for using it.

          It's got nothing to do with clicking or not clicking a link

          No, it's got everything to do with clicking a link. Then again, you strike me as the kind of person who doesn't disable adblocking software for websites they like. You know, enjoying all their content without giving them so much as a single CPC.

          It'd just be nice to have less pointless articles to scroll past on the front page

          It's pretty easy to tell the crap from the worthwhile. It doesn't take long to figure out which authors are worth reading and which ones are worth skimming occasionally. Then again, one man's pointless article is another's totally interesting thrill-ride. But I suppose we're all supposed to have your taste, yeah?

          As for making money, perhaps they could try posting more articles with actual substance rather then repeating old ones.

          Yes. That's totally how the internet in a world of adblocking softrware works. Oh mighty guru, please, tell a successful company how to run their business. It's clearly failing without your input...

          I still can't understand how a site with such obvious problems as Kotaku US (enough to be considered a horrible joke to most of the industry, second only to IGN) is essentially copy-pasted into Kotaku AU (one of the only 'Australian' games news sites, not to mention having a great team) and yet any feedback, questions or problems related to Kotaku US content is simply ignored, downvoted or hated on...

          Really? I've found people who approach it without being douchebags generally don't get downvoted. Then again, I don't see why you think down or up votes matter. It's not like they're Facebook Likes or, you know, a tangible currency. As for the problems with Kotaku US, I wouldn't know, I don't go there. Same with IGN. I can't imagine why the Kotaku AU team would give a crap about our concerns with Kotaku US stuff. It's just another way for the company as a whole to generate more CPC. Which, yeah, you guessed it, generates more income.

          Are you truly that against change or do you just like scrolling through articles with single photos, broken videos, horrible English, repeated content, twitter arguments, American politics, random crap the Bashcraft found online, repeated content, etc?

          What the hell does this have to do with change or my liking of it? You're the one having a bitch here, not me. If I get an article about photos, I hit the back button without saying anything. You know why? Because it's easier. The people who want that crap can have it. Who am I to decide what hundreds/thousands of other people like? Further more, who the hell are you?

          As for broken videos. I don't watch videos. Again, back button. Horrible English? If I let that bother me I might as well get the hell off the internet now. Repeated content is just click bait to generate more CPC (and it's obvious at that). Every time you open the link to complain (if your adblocking software is disabled) you'd be giving them money. Great job sport.

          Twitter arguments depends, if they link a reoccurring twitter feed like Giz tends to do, then yes, I have an issue because it crashes my phone. I avoid it like the plague (much like the other stuff I don't care for). I find american politics interesting so bleh. I've stopped reading Bashcraft except for the stuff that takes my interest (funny that), same with Luke. P. Doesn't mean I need to go have a bitch at them when they post something I don't care about.

          Yeah nah. You're having a sook and it's boring. "This website isn't run the way I would run it, therefore it's shit."

          I've got a clever idea for you, Mr. Fantastic, why not go start your own goddamn Australian gaming website and be a competitor. I'm sure you personally have what it takes to take on Kotaku AU and Games.On.Net. The brilliant mastermind of all the internet you are and all.

          I can even link you to some good tutorials for HTML5, CCS3, PHP5 and Javascript/jQuery if you want.

            Because that would poison your audience completely. If people were that interested in only YouTube content, they would go there. This is a stupid argument and you should feel that way for using it.Wow, it's almost as if you nearly understood my point there...almost... Also nice to get the insulting going early isn't it?

            Then again, you strike me as the kind of person who doesn't disable adblocking software for websites they like. You know, enjoying all their content without giving them so much as a single CPC.Gotta love random, baseless assumptions. Just for the record, I tried AdBlockPlus ages ago, no matter how I set it, it still blocked at least half of the ads on youtube. Might seem fine (or even good) for some people but as I watch youtube constantly I felt I had to get rid of it...Shocking, I am happy to pay for things I like.

            Really? I've found people who approach it without being douchebags generally don't get downvoted. Then again, I don't see why you think down or up votes matter. It's not like they're Facebook Likes or, you know, a tangible currency.Insults aside, I don't recall ever saying I gave a crap about downvotes. I just said they (along with hate usually) seem to get aimed at any feedback/opinion about the site but hey, random assumptions are fun remember?

            What the hell does this have to do with change or my liking of it? You're the one having a bitch here, not me.As to this and the final few paragraphs that I can't be bothered quoting, I think you should look up definitions for 'feedback' and 'opinion.' Those words may change your life.
            The "change" I was talking about was the changes I was giving feedback about in relation to the site and it's articles.

            Anyway, the real issue/s..
            No, it's got everything to do with clicking a link.The reason it has nothing to do with clicking the link (as I said before) is because it's about the quality of the articles themselves and the flood of crap. Does me not clicking them somehow make them disappear from the news scroll and website?

            It's pretty easy to tell the crap from the worthwhile. It doesn't take long to figure out which authors are worth reading and which ones are worth skimming occasionally. Then again, one man's pointless article is another's totally interesting thrill-ride.
            If I get an article about photos, I hit the back button without saying anything. You know why? Because it's easier. The people who want that crap can have it.I don't even know where to start with this.
            You seem to be admitting there is tons of crap but trying to argue that we should all just shut up about it, skim past it, press back, whatever...It's easier to just move on.... Do you just lie in bed all day with people telling you when and what to watch, eat, read and shit or something? Because if not then you might be able to grasp that sometimes you have to put a little bit of effort into things to get something back.

            I agree that One man's junk is another man's treasure (or article, whatever) but that logic can only go so far, lest we go back to what I said earlier about every youtube video, comment and tweet. There is a Popsugar article ad on my page about 'the red carpet.' Why not post that here on Kotaku? Someone will find it interesting surely after all, you find American politics interesting and some find random Japanese pictures interesting....
            I hope beyond anything that you understand what I mean. There needs to be some limit on the crap that get posted, the question is where to draw the line? Well for starters:
            "At Kotaku Australia, we’re carefully trying to build a reputation for creating the strongest, most engaging content surrounding games and gaming culture." Straight from the About section. Maybe it should be followed more often.

            Finally,
            Who am I to decide what hundreds/thousands of other people like? Further more, who the hell are you?I have no idea who you are, as for me, I am a reader of Kotaku Australia. I am also a citizen of Australia, a gamer and a human (with a brain amazingly). Somewhere in that mess of things I am entitled to an opinion, as a reader of Kotaku I'm entitled to voice that opinion, feedback, critique or comment. Believe it or not but that's what the comments section is actually for...Comments.
