[Toms HW] DRM Blues: Ubisoft PC Titles Rendered Useless Next Week - Page 10

post #91 of 93
You can't deny that Ubisoft makes great games with excellent storytelling (to say the least). I've had countless hours of fun with Far Cry, Mass Effect, Assasin's Creed, etc etc.
I want to pay for their amazing games to show my support, I really do, but until Ubisoft stop beating the dead horse called DRM.....they won't be seeing my wallet. Putting any kind of DRM on games should be a crime, because the only thing DRM has been successful at is encouraging more crime (i.e. piracy).

Yep, I put literally thousands of hours into FarCry and FC2, and I am pumped for FarCry 3 - I just wanna get back to the jungle. But if it's going to have some lame online connection required to play singleplayer BS..... pirate copy for me.

Heroes 6 ? What ? You serious ?

When i played Might and Magic and HOMM 2 these games didnt need a nasty publisher and all the DRM nonsense. I saw the special edition in one magazine, picked it up for 10$ and put it inside of my Pentium IV PC and started playing. HOMM V was still bareable, Ubisoft nonsense-wise.

But this is too much. What actually does it mean that the game is rendered useless? This is absurd. I want to know EACTLY what happens to my games.
