DRMed

Dear, Ubisoft, I heard your DRM servers are causing people a few issues.

Apparently people haven’t been able to play for most/all of Sunday. Of course the thread is only 7 pages long with a few hundred posts, so either not a lot of people are having problems or not a lot of people bought the PC version of your game.

I think this marks my last Ubisoft DRM post. At this point all of the bad things I assumed would happen have and I’m getting tired of feeling negative. I may change my mind if they do something monumentally stupid, but I’m not sure how they could top themselves.

    I wish they’d just give up on the PC market and be done with it.

      I’m not sure they’re that subtle about it. I assume if they wanted to stop developing PC games they would. Who know what goes on in the minds of executives though. *shudder*

    That seems to be the what they are trying to do. But I am a PC gamer more than a console gamer, so I want to play their stuff on my fancy PC!

  3. If their DRM hasn’t divided by zero yet and spawned a dimensional gate through which Cthulthu can devour people, then it hasn’t finished its job yet.

  4. Being a veteran myself, the draconic DRM from UBIsoft feels like they have just said “f-u” and kicked all those on duty overseas in the groin. There are more gamers in the military in places like Afghanistan than many developers realize I am sure (we hear from some of them). Ubisoft may have a great product and I have enjoyed their games in the past but I will no longer tolerate their treatment of their target market.
