If Ubsioft obtains their old properties they will saddle all of the games with the Uplay crap. It's not horrible; certainly better than Origin and GFWL, but in a world with Steam it's utterly pointless.
It's gonna become a colossal annoyance with all these online game services being mandatory for different games
