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.

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.

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 **** .

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.

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.

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.

"Hashashin" means "eater of hashish".

Which makes sense, seeing how you'd have to be stoned out of your mind to try jumping off a 40-ft spire into a pile of hay.

They used hashish oil to relax their targets, making them easier to kidnap/kill.

I call BS on the Mass Effect Cancellation.

They'd simply slap an AO rating on it for North America.

mass effect is clearly the master race game on this small list of games "facts"   
   
and to correct the fallout  one, you could converse, but your grammar would either be terrible or none existent. and if your intelligence was 1, you'd literally just speak in grunts.

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.

And the reason they are called hashasins is because the loved smoke Hash.
The brown kind of weed.
If you remember when you are in the Assassins headquarters in the big city, its filled with waterpipes. used for smoking weed.

False! They were called hashasins because Sean Connery just could NOT pronounce it right.
