You are amazingly skilled at ignoring what others are saying aren't you? An offline mode indeed is a viable means of playing a game as long as the offline mode works as they advertise. According to many accounts it thus far does not in AC 3.

Assassin's Creed 3 seems to be spelled wrong in the news story. I could of sworn it was about Far Cry 3 and the service issue which was fixed by playing in offline mode, which is what I obviously referring to.

I don't have hands-on experience with either game, I've been overseas for almost a year without my gaming PC. When I say "never had a problem with Uplay" I mean in my experience, obviously. When I say the Far Cry 3 issue is not "as horrible" because you can just put it offline mode, I am using information received from reputable news sources. I didn't consider or care about Assassin's Creed stuff when I wrote it.

Sorry if that offends you.

Yeah, apologies - I meant Far Cry 3 in this case, not AC3 (damn this hangover...). Which, incidentally, seems to have a working offline mode by all accounts.Thus there seems to be far fewer complaints about DRM, at least from what I've read, as compared to the game in question, Far Cry 3. Maybe people aren't as unreasonable as you claim after all. If Ubisoft has gotten the offline mode working as it should, then I'll buy it with no complaints (unless the Uplay front end is as annoying as Creston and others say it is, but that's another story. )
