Steam's DRM would be horrendous to more customers if it wasn't so easily cracked or if the fanboys weren't so blinded by love that they overlook its failures.
Yet, Steam is one platform where you can choose to (or in your case choose to not) purchase the game on. No matter how you buy ACII on PC you are stuck with broken DRM that you paid for and can't even play the game.*
I happen to be okay with Steam's DRM. In fact I find it very convenient. Please, air your grievances. Apparently you think I'm short-sighted and can't see what is wrong with it. Maybe you'll open my eyes. Conveniences:
- No more damn patches. I'm always up to date.
- One login for many games.
- I don't even have to be online after installing. (Offline Mode)
- Friends lists, server lists, tons of other social stuff and free.
- Heavy use - Launch titles HL2 basically took Steam down for days. I haven't seen anything as bad since, they have learned some good lessons.
- I have to log in to be able to go into offline mode. I haven't tried to do this since near launch of Steam
This could be growing pains of their broken DRM as I stated Steam already went through. But that's not my problem to be honest. It's Ubisoft's.
Please, add your problems to the list, I'd like to hear what I'm apparently not seeing.
