I actually think U-Play is the second best annoying game checker DRM there is, Steam is the best and U-Play falls far short but it is at least trying. The original Assassin's Creed had horrible DRM if I remember, or maybe it was the second. I remember a lot of rage posts about people not being able to play their games at that time. Ubisoft also had a staff member say that they would not be porting games to PC because PC users were just all pirates and used the fact that a game they had just launched only sold 1 million copies on the PC to show how piratey we are. He did get fired but it speaks of the internal mindset of some of the employs.

Maybe board and tabletop games are about to make a comeback. Wouldn't be so bad, I do like Risk and Warhammer 40K (though I suspect cocaine might be a cheaper habit than the latter). I tried Axis and Allies once, but it was very confusing.

Actually, 'Battlefield: Endor' sounds pretty good.

I would totally play Simcity:Tatooine.

:lol: Axis and Allies is great, once you get passed all of them rules. I remember I played a game of Axis and Allies that took 3 sittings to complete. We wrote down all of the troop placements and kept records of everything so setup was not difficult the next time we played. It definitely is a game you have to dedicate time for, almost like a dungeons and dragons campaign. Now that is what I would like to see a massive comeback of, the traditional roleplay games such as AD&D (or even 3rd Edition, 4th just blows), Palladium, Rift, etc. But sadly people would rather have flashy graphics thrown at you then the graphics of one's imagination. Lazy gits.

No one is going to release a computer game that is going to cost 10 to 100's of millions to development without serious DRM, online only + a constant revenue stream.

Like it or not that's the business reality and its best just to take that for granted and hope the actual game is actually any good
