    I just fired up Assassin's Creed 2 and let it idle, which I haven't done before. The idle movie that played involved Ezio chasing down a man during the festival in Venice, cornering him in an alley, and then shooting him with the gun attachment to the hidden blade - upgrades that I just recently unlocked in my save.

    "Cool!", I thought, "it's giving me a recap of what I just did in-game!" But then it occurred to me that maybe there's only one movie and they simply chose to show off some of the more neato-sweeto tools of the assassin's trade.

  • As far as I know, this movie is a cinematic trailer for Assassin's Creed 2, much like the movie with Altair with the crossbow was for the original game. Similarly, it's the only idle movie in the game.

  • I got Assassin's Creed 2 Game of the Year Edition for the 360 and the slip inside says it comes with DLC which was the reason why i brought it. when i got Borderlands Game of the Year Edition for the PS3 there was an extra option in the PS3's main menu which took me to the installers for the DLC. The PS3's menu layout hasn't changed very much however the 360's have changed quite a lot, evey time i have never found a separate option to install the DLC. I am wondering, how do i install the DLC for the game of the year edition for the 360 using the latest version of the 360's menu? EDIT: i

  • During the opening credits for Deus Ex: Human Revolution, after you've played through the epilogue and been caught by Barratt, and subsequently thrown through the glass wall you're presented with a nice cinematic where they're rebuilding Adam and a blonde girl appears in this video multiple times; The image is blurry intentionally and appears this way during the cinematic, the full cinematic... I miss something else in the game as I do not remember this character being part of the story in game.

  • One of the trophies for Assassin's Creed: Liberation reads as follows: Climber Climb 8848 meters Considering that I completed the entire game only climbing about 2,500 meters (according to my stats), I was wondering where they came up with this weird number of theirs. Going from a math perspective, I tried seeing if 8848 converted into something sane... 8848 meters is... 5.49789 miles 9676.29 yards 29028.9 feet 8.848 kilometers Nothing really stands out there... So, does the number 8848 have some sort of significance that I've missed somewhere, or is it just a random number?

  • Assassin's Creed 2 gets stuck at the cut-scene where: Leonardo DiVinci repairs your hidden blade, just as you get it. I can open the map, options dialog, and change weapons but the cut-scene will not proceed. I have tried replaying this memory several times, but it does not help. I am running AC2 on Steam via UPlay (Windows 7, SP1, 64 bit). This is a legit copy. Googling around suggests some others are having issues with this scene as well, but the issues seem to be with pirated copies only.

  • I just resumed my Assassin's Creed 2 game, which I haven't played for several months. The game loaded, and suddenly there's Ezio, standing in the middle of a crowded street, weapons in sleeves, with people milling about, and me with no idea where I am or who I'm supposed to kill. I've looked through the ("Animus Desktop") - aka the Start menu, but I don't see Objectives anywhere. How can I figure out where I am and who I'm supposed to kill?

  • In your personal Steam profile you can see your average game completion percentage (which, for me, sits at a pathetic 33%). However, I can't seem to find a way to see which of these games Steam considers actually completed. Simply looking at a game's achievements does not seem enough for me: for instance, the game Splice has a main game and an epilogue, but is the game completed when the main... requires a ridiculous amount of time if your Steam account is like many peoples'. If Steam already feels it knows what games you've completed I was hoping they might also have a list of said games. So
