Ubisoft requires Steam AND uplay for M&M X....proving piracy wins again.

If you buy the Steam version of Might and Magic X, you have to use BOTH Steam and Uplay to play the game. Else, you can just buy the game off of Uplay and use that. Uplay, unlike Steam, is known for sucking.

But the pirates get a hassle free experience. They get to just click on the icon and play the game, no questions asked. Yet the paying customer has to put up with a bunch of BS just to play the game they already paid $30 for.

Thanks DRM.

DRM isn't about combatting piracy. It's about controlling the software use on other's hardware/platform. Piracy would "win" no matter what.

But Uplay is fantastic software that provides users with a multitude of unique features and enhances the gaming experience as a whole.

Having to use Uplay sucks indeed...

But this is THE most waited game in my life, ever since I had the displeasure of playing MM9.


And I'm gonna buy on Steam, since I can't buy directly from Ubi...

You're usually a jerkish troll, but I have to agree with you this time.

Might & Magic? Who cares, I was expecting a new M&M's game based on the candy.

This. You're acting as if this is the first Ubisoft game to do this or something. This has been the norm for some time now.
