I Am Alive worth $5? I am not opposed to playing with a pad.
It is a really bad game in general and not worth any amount of money, far better ways to spend your time for $5. They had a good idea for a game but unfortunately that's all they had.

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.

Sure, you can play in offline mode but then you lose the following:
- Achievements (which can actually be used to unlock stuff in Uplay)
If you actually care about those things, being forced to play in offline mode isn't a good solution. Origin is a much better service than Uplay. It doesn't break your game if you lose your connection. It doesn't force you to download and install a game before you can link it to your account. It lets you choose where you wish to download and install your games. It doesn't have a very good UI but compared to Uplay, it's a masterpiece of layout and usability.

You seem to treat this like it's acceptable or something. If you went to a restaurant and ordered a steak, you'd probably complain if the steak was under or overcooked. If you went to a movie and the first half hour of the movie had no sound, you'd probably complain too. Similarly, if I pay $50 for a game and can't play it for a day with full functionality because of a worthless DRM scheme, I'll probably complain. Consumers should get angry when the products and services they pay for don't meet expectations. Apathetic customers are just as bad as apathetic pirates.

Yeah you're spot on, that was him alright. The exact words were "I wasn't exaggerating or kidding at all. I never have crashing problems, ever." Then he proceeded to blame people who mod their game and who don't know how to handle their computers. The whole thread pretty much called him out on the bullshit at that point and for amusement I linked a thread where he posted about Fallout 3 crashes he was having, proving that hes often so contrarian that he doesn't even agree with himself :D

Nope - it was you. I am pretty certain that I am not making up anything, but I have better things to do than sift through your post history. So whatever. And I didn't accuse you of lying per se, but you are a self-admitted contrarian. Don't tell me you deny defending Steam on GOG's forums (where I recognize you from your name and avatar) just because the prevalent attitude there is that it's invasive crap. You do the opposite here because the prevalent attitude is more to the opposite end of the spectrum. Personally I hate shit like that. You're just playing people for the fun of it.

You don't always need the government, sometimes the industry and a part of the customers are enough to cannibalize products. Don't tell me you missed the outrage after certain sex scenes in Mass Effect 2 (or 3).
It is quite simple, US Americans love their weapons and they fear naked tits. This results in self-restriction of the industy, that simply doesn't produce games with erotic or sexual content. It occasionally happens that we in Europe get to see some naked impression that get denied from the USA, as in Witcher for example.
But you simply can't produce a game story that would heavily rely on sexual events, as it would be impossible to sell it on the biggest market. Thus I say that the USA, in their bigotry, prevent erotica in games. One of the most elemental parts of any form of culture is not existent in games. Did you never wonder why?

And as long as the USA prevent even slightly sexual content in games for everyone on the world, I'd remain silent about how stupid countries are.

More like rabid internet contrarian but whatever, thanks for sharing with us your uplay experience. I think I'll go with the documented evidence pointing the other way though, ciao!

I could believe it in other games, but not FO3, sorry. Not at launch. In fact, I'm fairly certain that when the last time this was discussed, someone went back in your post history and found threads where you detailed problems with FO3 you yourself had despite your claims. It was pretty much proven to me at that point you just like being a contrarian. If someone says "up", you say "down". I loved FO3, despite it not being everyone's favorite, but it has nothing to do with saying whatever is socially acceptable.
