Since Steam usually has it's own achievements system and there is no mention of it on the page of the game, is it still possible to obtain Live achievements, or are they not availble in the steam version?

If you still can get them, how do you enable it to get them?

    It's actually not a duplicate, I just voted too early. There are no Steam achievements for Fallout 3 so the question linked does not apply.

  • you access GFWL through windows itself, now, if that helps. The client is not functioning anymore, IIRC, but it is integrated into Windows 8+

My best guess would be that you can still get Live achievements, that is, if you're logged in to GFWL (Games for Windows Live).

It depends what version of Fallout 3 you have (i.e. if it's the Game of the Year edition). Some people on Steam's forums are reporting that they haven't been asked to log in to GFWL.

  • some instructions on how to do that would be nice, as there is no "login to Games for Windows Live" link visible in Fallout 3 or something like that. Jul 21, 2010 at 5:10

You can get Live achievements from Fallout 3 when playing it via Steam (it's a Games For Windows Live game).

On the Xbox 360 the title of the game is "Fallout 3".

Source: I have Fallout 3 for PC (Steam).
