No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Open the Temple Door and learn Desmond's fate.   

Story related, can't be missed.

This happens after the credits roll at the end of the game. There are a lot of credits so be prepared to have something to do while you wait it out.

The truth that we will learn is that there is no Desmond, only Zuul!

Will our Desmond meet a terrible fate? Can he save the world? Tune in next month. Same Bat-time, same Bat-channel.

Desmond Miles is actually a homosexual with the power to rid the world of AIDS?

If you right Desmond Miles backwards,you get selim dnomsed, which either means something EXTREMELY important to the game frachise, or it just sounds fucking epic

So based on the story of the whole 2012 thing and the world ending, they pretty much have to end it with desmond even if the world wont end but its one of the bases of the series till now.

At some point you're going start a new assassin's creed game and wake up as someone new who has been living Desmond living everyone else's lives.

It cant be his last game the entire series is about Desmond...They have to make the last one take place in the Present day playing as Desmond as a full fledged assassin...the whole series leads up to that moment... Otherwise this is Mass Effect 3 all over again

Hopefully they have a present day or future game with Just desmond as the assassin after this. That would be epic although I can see a lot of douchers hating that idea.

Can anyone tell help me with where the power stones are located?? I'm finished everything before opening the door, and I'm starting to get frustrate because I can't find anything!!

Comment #26 by silverkngt101
Saturday, November 03, 2012 @ 02:14:10 PM

@25 You get the power stones/batteries/cubes during your missions as desmond. After you get those you can go to the consoles and insert the cubes into the console much like when you first entered the temple. You have to do some climbing and jumping to get to the console. The first console is on the top left. You can approach it by going up the stairs to the left where desmond's dad roams. You climb the center pillar in that room and get cutscenes with Juno as you get closer. If your talking to shaun at the door, when you turn around, if you look up and to the right, you can see her waiting. After you get that first one, the next one will be accessible and so on. Hope this helps and good luck.

I have the game completed, it is the second to last achievement you get of the story mode, it should unlock after the credits roll, after the credits you then will play the epilogue where you receive the last story achievement

I keep hearing rumors of another, if that's true, i wonder how they'll work it in.

Anyone know how to replay desmond missions after you complete the game? I really wish it would let me rewatch the game videos without having to go to youtube.

I thought it was pretty weak how they make it sound like you have a choice in how the game ends, then the computer chooses for you and then 20 minutes of credits roll.

wow, i didnt even get to make the decision myself ... looking at juno i never trusted her so i wouldve chose to let the world be destroyed and rule as a savior !
Back to playing assassins creed 1 because all these sequals are starting to annoying me now, i think thats the franchise finished for me now. i can live with now knowing what happens next. will probably be just as dissapointing
everyone stop buying the games ! if we dont put up with shitty sequals anymore then maybe huge money hungry game companies will stop making them!!!

What a craptastic ending.... I'm seriously disappointed, considering how much effort they put into the story line through out the franchise, and THAT'S how it ends?

As T.S. Eliot said.... Not with a bang, but a whimper....

This better be just some nightmare of Desmond's. He better be in a coma or something. Is this the last game in the series? If so... I can't. If I start saying why I have a problem with it then I'll start ranting and won't stop until I've explained every single reason why this is terrible. And I have lots of reasons. >~

Comment #61 by Balroga
Friday, January 04, 2013 @ 04:36:43 PM

@13 Actually, I have a theory of a game they may come up with, what if a group of people similiar to the group involved with Desmond, has like a animus 5.0 or something and is trying to see why the world is controlled by a tyrant (Which is the person you let free by touching the sphere). And the "Tyrant" will be a spin off of Abstergo, she'll follow them and try and stop them from acheiving whatever goals they try to acheive.

Y'all really need to mature...whining about long credits is ridiculous. You just spent 30+ hours enjoying a game these people you not think they deserve some credit? Also, I bet you guys are the same ones who leave a movie theater as soon as credits roll, despite the fact that everyone knows there's an extra scene. You play games like this for the story...shut up and watch the story.
