Ubi should drop the PC as a platform
Fuck you. If you don't like Ubisoft games then don't buy them but leave the rest of us that do out of it. Ubisoft has backed away from limited-activations and always-on requirements because of pressure from PC gamers and FC3's UPlay implementation, while unnecessary, was pretty innocuous. If anything PC gamers should support Ubisoft for responding to the community. Currently I refuse to buy EA games due to its anti-consumer practices - like I used to do with Ubisoft - but if EA were to reform its ways then I'd change my position.

Of which anti-consumer practices do you speak? Not selling their newer games on Steam and requiring Origin is pretty lame but at least Origin is better than Uplay. Uplay is utterly worthless.

Despite Uplay's crappiness, I'd prefer that Ubisoft continue to support the PC and put more effort into doing so. Timely, quality ports is a good start.

1)The guy's a dick. Obviously.

2)Even dicks might accidentally have legitimate points.

He's *basically* saying that as bad as Ubi is, EA is currently worse.

And currently... he's right. UPlay is a pile of crap, but Origin is worse. If you were asked which company currently has worse anti-gamer policies and you *HAD* to give one legit answer, the answer would be EA.

And that's pretty damned terrible.

EA isn't as bad as Ubi used to be, but they're worse than Ubi is now.

Mind you, I have too much self-respect to buy Ubi PC games for at least a few more years. You don't stop punishing a repeat offender the instant he stops offending. I also won't buy EA PC games for years. This dick just obviously has much, much, much lower standards than you or I do, or most of the BN community (sorta like the standards for cordiality, since "Fuck you" is a legitimate response in his mind), but he does have SOME standards.

It's sorta like a broken clock being right twice a day (unless it's digital).

Now... that being said... the short version of my response to UbiSoft is this:

How many years did you treat me like a criminal? That's the minimum number of years that it'll take for me until I'm ready to buy PC games from Ubi again.
