I just completed the PC version that I purchased through Steam and wanted to say that I enjoyed every minute of it! The ending was of course bitter-sweet since it was, of course, the end of the game.

Just wanted to express my satisfaction with this title and I honestly hope that the remaining games in the trilogy get released for PC! Additionally, it would be great if the future titles utilized Steam's achievements. Not that eliminating Templars wasn't fun to do for the pure pleasure, but having an achievement to match would be even better.

Again, thanks!

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/agreepost.gif nice to see someone with constructive opinions about the game for a change. And knowing that the achievements are available on Steam makes me want to consider buying the game twice...

I'm not Godless. I have many Gods. But I'm an Atheist I admit that. By the way Mog, what happened to your Avatar and signature?

JC : When I play it makes me want to start doing parkour :s

but if you are a athiest (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Athiest) you cant have any gods as that is the meaning of the word so your entire statement is a oxymoron (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxymoron).

but back on topic it would be nice if they did keep achievments in steam but unfortunatly only valve games seem to get achievments

Actually, it means someone who does not believe in the God presented in the Christain bible. It only gained the meaning of no Gods later, when it was realised that there are no Gods other than the one in the bible and, thus, any Gods you believe in are false leading you back to not believing in any anyway. Which is funny because they also now use that term to refer to both Jews (who the Christians splintered off from) and Muslims (who the Jews splintered off from) even though all three believe in the same God, just in a different way. This is why the followers of Islam had, and I believe some still use, the term "people of the book".

Could you differentiate between Valve and Steam for me please? I thought they were functionally the same thing because they're joined at the hip and all.

that ist only if you take the christian descriptions the same as the christian descryption for voodoo is that the it is about black magic and controling people when it is actualy mostly about healing magic. the idea of voodoo dolls came from east european witches.

the differance between steam and valve is valve is the developer and steam is a publisher/seller the firms may be linked but it has to be kept seperate like microsoft cant do the microsoft game's in the same firm as their OS production.

Well, since it was the Christians who coined both the term theism and Atheism, how can you not take it in their context? Even the Wiki page you sent me to confirms what I said. btwm whilst we're being an, it's an oxymoron http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

But, if Steam and Valve work hand in hand like, doesn't it mean that Creed on Steam will have the achievements regardless?

creed on steam will be exactly like any other pc version it is steam exclusive games that get the achievments.

as for the other thing bob you can belive what you like as 90% of all history is rewrote by religon to make them look stronger than they are.

On that, my good man, you will have complete agreement from me.

Okay, so, I don't understand the point you're making now. If I buy Creed through Steam, will it have the achievements?

So that signathon goes for both posts, just to be clear

stuff like half life 2 only has acheivments as you cant play the game without using steam even if you buy the boxed version. AC from the 2 other purchase methods totaly ignores steam so it wont get achievments as it would favour one format over the others. same as they could of used windows live to do achievments but then that would make it a vista only game.

I'm confused now. And I don't remember there being any achievements when I was playing Half-Life 2. But, anyway, if I purchase Assassin's Creed via download from Steam, will I have achievements or not???

I'm an atheist and I refuse to be associated with people who believe in many gods.
"Atheist" is a word to describe someone who is godless(the "a-" standing for "without" and the "theos" meaning "god"). You Bob, are a "polytheist" as you have many gods("poly" meaning "many" and "theos" still meaning "god"). And "atheist" and "polytheist" are Greek words so defining them from a christian, jewish or muslim point of view is just silly.

I'm not an atheist. I don't have any deities. And I'm not saying the words are accurate defined, I'm saying that's what the term as a whole was originally used in reference to. History is full of words that have been misinterpreted and misrepresented (psychology anyone?)

That still doesn't answer my question about achievements though???

I'm not an atheist. I don't have any deities.
That doesn't make any sense.
And the words "atheist" and "poytheist" have not been misinterpreted in history as we still know their exact meaning. Old Greek is not a language that is completely lost to us. I should know, I did some.

And for some reason I have the feeling that Jet-Black is one of those members who registers, makes a thread and never comes back. So I don't believe he is going to answer your question.

Dunno' Jackie, but I can never resist the opportunity to discuss religion when it comes up, regardless of how far off topic it may be.

Polly : I don't worship any Gods or Deities. Anyone who tells you the Norse pantheon are Gods is mistaken, though not without some grounding. And I was actually asking Cas about the Steam thing because he seems to know too

Ahh well.
I'm an Atheist. Which means I reject all gods.

Don't quite get what Bob's getting at, to be honest. First he has a god, then he doesn't, then he does again... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

I don't worship any Gods. Just because other people say that Odin and Frejya and all the rest are Gods, does not make them Gods. Anyway, the point is...

Can anyone tell me if the Steam version of Assassin's Creed, the one available for purchase through Steam has the achievements thingybobs? I like that kind of stuff.

Someone?

Anyone?

Please?

Bob I'll try to clear it up for you but I'll leave out the angst which seems mighty common in this thread. Steam is the software that is pretty much like an online store for games. Valve however is a company that makes the games like half-life, half-life 2, half-life 2 deathmatch, half-life extraneous use of a franchise for money, and portal. So you could purchase the game through Steam, but not Valve. I hope that didn't just add to the confusion.

I understand the different between Valve and Steam (basically there isn't one, only for legal reasons) what I don't get is why I'm being told that Creed on Steam has achievements like the 360 by one person and then not by another. That's where I'm getting confused.

Cas : They're not Gods and they don't live in Valhalla. They're called the Vanir and Aesir and they live in the land of Asghard (upper Earth). Whilst Valhalla (the Great Hall) is indeed located in Asgard, it's not even close to being heaven. The underworld is at the very bottom of Yggdrasil and is presided over by Hel. All souls go to to her, regardless of how good or bad they me be. However, the honoured dead are able to leave the underworld and feast in the Great Hall until the time they are called upon to do battle again at the coming of Ragnaroc (which is in six years by the way). So, Mister Smartypants, next time you start arguing someones religion make sure it's not with a Priest http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
