Right side of the steam page in gold lettering:

"Requires 3rd-Party Account: Uplay (Supports Linking to Steam Account)"
How weird. Hard to believe I could overlook that... I guess I was assuming it would be in the fine print and I was skipping down to the bottom of the page. Kind of reminds me of that visual/brain test where they ask the person to count the number of times the basketball is bounced...

Not sure how valid your analogy is, but I understand the angst. However, I won't lie. Convenience is King, even to me and although I personally avoid Walmart is it any better when I buy from Amazon or my local Meijer?

It is what it is.

I have the acceptable ads turned off. As far as whitelisted ads, never seen one -- any time an ad has shown up it's because the extension or the browser is gacked up. A restart of the browser and a reload of the page, no ads.

LOL -- no worries. I admit I am a curmudgeon.

To me it would be like if you had to use different browsers for various web-sites. I don't want to have multiple digital distribution applications. I want it all in one place. And if Ubisoft doesn't want to give up some of the cash to Steam, don't put it on the platform. *shrug*

My real gripe is with the lack of identification of the requirements.

Here's to hoping ABP wins all their court battles, wherever they may happen. I don't know how people deal with the Internet without it.

Screw that. Thank goodness I wasn't that interested. Am I overlooking it, or is there no indication on the Steam store page that this requires Uplay?

So am I just a whining curmudgeon, or is it totally annoying and stupid that if you buy a Ubisoft game via Steam, you still need Uplay.

Ah, this is Ubisoft... so will I need Uplay to use the game code I got with the video card? Guessing I will... if you get it on Steam, do you still need Uplay?

This. Chris Roberts has been completely open about the development of Star Citizen,
Maybe, time will tell. But it wouldn't surprise me if the end result is just as unsatisfactory...

Got a "free" copy of WD2 with my new card, I'm sure I'll get around to trying it eventually...

A movie trailer containing scenes that got cut from the movie is a perfectly fine metaphor.
I have to say, I find that pretty annoying.

I went with EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC 8gb. I love it. I keep cards for a long time (replaced a 660Ti) so the $400 I spent was acceptable.

Next is a new monitor.

Haha, funny! That's what I am replacing with my EVGA 6G GeForce GTX 1060. My monitors are fine though, been using two 24", 1920 x 1200 monitors for years now and they still seem fine.

Have to admit when the Powerball went over $1B I bought 20 tickets which was $40 -- kinda felt guilty about it, but figured what the hell..

Jesus, thought I was having a good day until I saw someone won the entire US$421,000,000.00 Powerball jackpot. Talk about Christmas come early!
Ha! Yeah, must be nice. I buy Powerball and MegaMillions tickets even now and then, usually when the pot is high like this, but didn't know about this one until I saw the news about the win.

I understand the math reasons for not buying them, but my personal spin has always been that I'm as likely to win as anyone else, so why not throw away 5-10 bucks? Hell, that's less than the price of eating dinner out. If nothing else it's worth it for the daydreaming about what I'll do if I win.

I've stopped going to funerals anymore. I just can't handle it. It takes too much out of me. I remember them my own way.
Yeah.. I gave up on funerals in my early 30s. Since then, immediate family only.

Sounds like you've had a really bad run, Rigs. Here's to hoping it is over and things make a turn to the positive for you. And I echo your condolences to anyone having lost significant person in your lives recently.

I'll agree that it's time to start thinking of a new paradigm. Most people enjoy "work" in order to have some purpose and stimulation in life.
They do? Got any support for that? I would have assumed the exact opposite. That a vast majority of people work simply because they "have to" ie.. to pay the rent and buy food. And if given any choice they wouldn't want to work.

I personally never enjoyed work, per se. Which is not to say I hated my job, just that it never appeared on my list of "things I want to do." Did I like some of the people I worked with? Absolutely. A few of them are still my very best friends even though we haven't worked together in many years.

I worked in an "education" company, and we before we got bought up by a larger company, our CEO used to give us these pep talks about the company and how great it was we were helping kids learn and make their lives better. I was sitting in the back of the room thinking, "Hey, it's great the kids are getting helped, but the only reason I am here is because you are paying me."

Plus you have situations like in Alabama where they are closing many of the government offices where you can get these ids due to budget reasons. Where do they close them? In areas with majority minority populations, of course. So sometimes if you don't own a vehicle, getting to somewhere to get an id can be difficult, even if you can afford it.

There are agencies that spend their time, effort and money helping people get these ids. And yet sometimes they still have difficulty. You might be surprised how many people don't have birth certificates. Or don't have the records from when they got married and changed their names. Or the records are inaccurate for one reason or another -- and the inflexibility of the system causes these people to get rejected. And these aren't some "Johnny come latelys" these are people who are in the 50s or older and lived thier entire lives in the US.

Edit: For spelling

IDs are at a state level. Federal IDs have been shot down several times over both parties.

People won't even get a driver's license, they sure aren't going to get a valid ID for anything else. Funny how they always have a Casino Club Card in their pocket though.....
Well, all the voting is done at the state level, so state level ids make sense to me.

You didn't address my question. If there is all this cheating going on for the Ds, why are the GOP winning so many elections? What level of GOP representation do you think would "accurately" indicate proper voting?
