From dust f*** yeah. A steam mate didnt think it was worth $5 but for $1 thats basically free.

Driver was pretty s*** but for $1 its worth it.

Enjoyed From Dust but hadn't realised I'd need uPlay for it when I bought it though. Played and finished game, immediately uninstalled uplay... never again.

That kept happening to me in AC Brotherhood last year :(, seemed to get better when I tried it again this year though.

It's amazing that they seemingly don't have a huge several minutes window or something on it.

When I got Settlers 7 through their accidental $0 sale, it didn't seem to be linkable to steam.

Had the same thing when I played conviction.

Ubisoft are the first pubs to make me really value crackers and believe they are important to this industry.

Who was it who issued an "official patch" for their game that so many people were having trouble with, that turned out to be nothing more than a hacked exe they downloaded from a torrent? Pretty damn funny.

Seriously, for one buck, everybody should grab From Dust, disable the browser plugins, and give it a whirl (being sure to change the control scheme to the alternative traditional control scheme, if that's not default by now).

Max Payne 2 IIRC.

I paid for From Dust with paypal and received this message but nothing has happened for 2 hours:

I'd rather suck farts out a dogs arse than pay for an ubisoft game. Even $1 is giving them too much money for their stupid bulls*** DRM.

Another game platform delivery program?

S*** games are made by ubisoft, nothing there that I'd pay anything for, nor waste my valuable time on pirating. Last decent thing they made was Farcry 1.

I'd pay full price for AC3 if they did that.

It's getting silly. Eventually we're going to have to be logged in to 50 different DRM programs just to play one game ffs. Why can't everyone just use steam.

AC2 was great on PS3, so bought it on PC. Tried to play AC2 on PC, worst port ever. Can't remember exactly what the problem was but I think if I remember correctly it would just keep telling me "press (action) (key)", and not give the re-bound key or something? Or not tell me what key it was? Buggered if I remember, I gave up trying to play it.

No, I lie. LA Noire was the worst port ever. I still haven't been able to play that at all because the keybinds fail (can't rebind, can't move, I can't remember. it was unplayable, and I dont' mean in the annoying way - I mean you actually couldn't proceed).

Because we call that a monopoly, and it's a bad idea. Ubi's system is no doubt s*** but they are at least competing in the marketplace which drives innovation.

Yeah, my pet rage with games is when i rebind controls and it it displayed the default controls on screen when telling me commands during the tutorial. To me thats just f*****g lazy.

However, AC2 and LA Noire worked fine for me with controls and im ESDF so not the WASD standard. Worst port - GTA4 for the fail graphics settings making the game unplayable without command line fixes.

Yeh but that's unlikely to happen anytime soon, so if we're stuck with DRM lets at least have a competitive marketplace where the least annoying / most innovative / best value service gains market share.

heh.. we're still playing Farcry 1 at lans.


it's a bugger they didn't fix that bug with hosting it on a a server with gigabit ethernet. At least you can clock the game server speed down to 100 Mbit when you're setting up the server for the lan.


I haven't played everything that Ubisoft have made, though they have made some of my fave games. // looks at Steve F with PuppyDog eyes hoping for a free copy of AC3 XD
