I live in the middle of nowhere in the states - good, reliable Internet is not available (my connection cuts out all the time). I have bought thousands of dollars in games over the years (avoiding MMO or MP games due to the Internet issue) and never had a problem. I won't be buying this game - which sucks, I liked the first one a lot, but I won't give Ubisoft my money for something that won't work right. The sole purpose of this system is to try to stop pirates (despite what they say, stupid "features" like the online saves are NOT worth it). I'm not going to move to a more urbanized area just to play this game. Why does industry still wonder why PC gaming is in decline? Sure, people shouldn't pirate the games, but it sucks when pirated copies are easier to use, more convenient, and less buggy than legal copies; they certainly aren't helping their case.

It wont require a super fast broadband connection. So your complaint is moot.

As for this thread its amazing how it brings out the warez kiddies who moan about a protection. LAWL's for all!

No DABhand, actually he has some legit complaint, as tat DRM requires a constant connection, fast or not. So if u got a 56k tat can happily chug awy 24/7 without dying, u're good to go for this game. If u have a 1Gbps connection that dies every 1/2 to 1 hr... u're screwed.

but...

I dun agree with his latter complaint.
Pirated:
Easier to use - Not really. Sometimes they force u to go thru hoops to crack the game.
More convenient - Again not rly. How hard is it to pop a cd in ur damn drive?
Less buggy - wth? legit copies gets u patches as soon as they are made available, cracked 1s usually stay only at retail version, with 1-2 cracked updates (if u're lucky and that game is damn popular)

Loopy DRMs like Ubisoft's are rare enough... And they're alrdy backtracking on it.

Morale of story: Go buy the damn game if u wanna play it, so that devs like Ubisoft don't have to resort to such wild assed protections.

If his connection drops even for a second or 2 he can't play the game.

And no I am not a pirate and I wish all people that pirated games would be punished for theft.

I buy more games than anyone I know and I will not buy this game if it has this DRM in it until it comes down to like 5 bucks and there are good cracks out.

Who said anything about pirating the game? I don't plan on doing that either. My connection is extremely unreliable - at least 2-3 hours of downtime per day, but it's the only Internet access I can get around here. I'm just complaining that due to their always-online requirement (which is solely to stop pirates) I'm missing out on what is likely a good game. I buy all my games - have wall full of over $2000 of them; this just won't be one of them. I don't feel like having my game cut out for no good reason just because my connection sucks. There's no reason for being always online in a game like this: it's single-player (so no "community" value one would get from MMO's, no competition like there is in other Multiplayer games, etc). The sole point of the requirement is to stop pirates, but in turn it ends up only really stopping people that don't have always-on access, while pirates will likely eventually break it anyway and honest people (like me (at least in this case)) continue to miss out on playing the rest of the Assassin's Creed story...

I'd just like to mention that when Painkiller first game out, years ago now. I walked down and bought it from my local game store. I was very excited, it had rave reviews.

Can you imagine how ****ed off I was when it wouldn't play? It was complaining that it wasn't a valid disk. I *HAD* to download a NOCD just to play the game I'd bought.

I download all my non-console games, through Steam. I love it!

This kind of DRM's rather increase the amount of pirated copies of a game, to even buy and support these kind of DRM's, I quote a well known acronym "GTFO".
