It is absolutely hysterical that they have cracked this game already. I thought with all the UBI hype it was going to be a few weeks delay. Man, this makes it even more ridiculous that UBI is punishing paying customers. Idiots.

I say it is disgusting considering the number of innocent civilians that have been slaughtered in Iraq by the invasion force. Have some respect for life (and for the dead)

The US prides itself on being a Christian nation...

That is revisionist history spread by religious nuts. They have systematically moved into politics like a virus slowly over the years. "In God we trust" being added to US money is a prime example of how they are fighting for control. Christians are VERY active and are dangerous. They spread their judgmental hatred and intolerance and try to force their beliefs on everyone else.

Sounds almost like they had the source code.

Why would Activision care? The IP is dead. Sure they bought out Vivendi who bought out Sierra but Activision has no interest in that series any more.

Yes, it still sucks. When they went free I tried it. Within a few days it was uninstalled. Felt very unpolished compared to WoW (using it just as an example of a quality not of content).

Hope the Mac users enjoy all 3 games available for them!

Hey, that isn't fair. It is hard to program games for people who get confused by mice with more than one button.

I think most gamers never visit forums and won't know about the DRM. Yes, their sales will be affected, but not by as much as we hope. The average gamer has A.D.H.D. and won't sit still long enough to actually READ.

I can't wait for all their games to tank, because then who are they going to blame?

Why the pirates of course.

Personally I think, just like Microsoft, they are intentionally trying to kill off the last of PC gaming while still attempting to make a little money from the clueless.

Maybe pissing people off is more effective than to just stop making crappy PC ports.

Love watching PR departments dance. The damage control dance is the cutest to watch.

Anyone who gets a good score is immediately sent to die in Iraq.

The final version of the DRM will include a french-Canadian midget that is employed at UBI Montreal to come to your house and hit you in the nads with a mallet before you start each game and exclaim "Zut alors!"

A lot of those console games are still in the store. It is offensive that they have shut down the multiplayer servers while still selling the games without any warning on the box.

The rule of thumb is definitely don't by ANYTHING with an EA label on it.

Micro$haft wants PC gamers to switch to xbox so they can make more money off of them.

I completely agree. They have been doing their best to kill PC gaming for a while now.

100% chance that my computer is now vastly outdated and I can't be bothered to buy a new one (since we only get lame console ports now).

It was a great run while it lasted, PC gaming. Tears

Much thanks for posting this VG247 and Blue. My kids have been very excited about Lego Universe since they first heard about it. I signed them up.

Cheers!

Hahahaha. "In-depth gaming experience."

Translation: an Xbox 360 controller needs to be used on this badly ported title from the console with the lovely addition of many bugs that will remain unfixed.
