What the fuck Ubisoft. What the fuck.

Seriously? This is how you treat your PC gamers? When the game disconnects from your servers for whatever reason you're booted off - for a single player game? Wow, just wow. Even Steam doesn't do this, you lose your connection mid game and keep playing (with the exception of a multiplayer game naturally).

So yeah, Assassin's Creed 2 = skip, and any other Ubisoft game that uses this kind of mechanic. I have a pretty solid connection but even that is prone to the occasional hiccup.

I just, I just feel shocked.

Curse you! I was going to post something after getting some feedback in the Steam Thread. ~Shakes fist~

Yeah, see... I'm gonna buy it. I'm just gonna slap a reloaded or razor1911 crack on it as soon as I do. I buy all my games, but screw DRM dictating how, when, and where I can play the games I've payed for.

At $60 it'll be some time before I pick up Assassin's Creed 2. Especially considering the first game dropped to $20 after just a few months.

Pretty stupid that AC2 is 2nd in the top sellers for Steam pre-sales. And they're giving such a great 0% discount!

Doing that on Steam wouldn't work because Steam has a HUGE disclaimer, and refund requests are evaluate case by case. They could very well deny a refund on the grounds that the whole DRM thing is quit...

Love it, provided the obvious bugs are ironed out.

Beware that the main interface is huge like Xbox and there's no compact list yet. I opted right back out so I could reclaim nearly half my screen. It also like to invoke your GPU to run at 80% on some...

Wouldn't work. Lewie's method means they have physical copies that they can no longer sell at full price. Doing it through Steam wouldn't have this impact. North Americans would have to pick a brick a...

Maybe we can pre-order on Steam and cancel prior to it being released. I don't know when Ubisoft gets their numbers, and it's not like they'll lose physical copies to the used game market, but who kn...
