Uplay, now this Blizzard Battle.net client. I told you so! I told you they'd all follow!!

Now how am I supposed to play games without these damn clients!?

Blizzard would have done this even if EA Download Manager never existed. Just be glad that they haven't started selling the CoD games through Battle.net.

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

Ubisoft sucks, EA sucks, and Blizzard sucks.

There's no reason to use their clients, because you shouldn't be playing their games.

Yeah, Blizzard has been doing its own thing for years now, so I'm not surprised.

You're missing the point! Now all of the publishers will follow!! Sega, Eidos, Square/Enix. It doesn't matter who it is, they'll all follow! Soon we'll be required to have like 20 game clients on our systems!!

I hate you all for doing this to me!!

Blizzard's been the exclusive online distributor of their games for as long as I can remember, and all their modern games have had their own updater client before login. This just consolidates them you whiny baby.

To be fair uplay is fairly unintrusive with its steam games. It now launches directly into the game and now only serves as a uplay point service. Sure it's not needed but because it integrates with my main client of choice its not a big deal for me.

Blizzard's battle.net isn't something new. Blizzard really had the first 'origin'. They've never had their games on other clients.

It'll be just like 2003 all over again. Whatever shall we do?

Also, Square is firmly on the steamworks bandwagon, so you don't have to worry about them. Same with Capcom, now that GFWL is on its way out.

sega, eidos, SE etc. aren't nowhere near as big enough to have their own clients.

also, if ubisoft had any faith in their piss-poor client, they wouldn't allow their games to appear on other services.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy. http://www.steamgamesales.com/

also, i still say there's a conspiracy to keep the profitability of PC gaming(non-f2p and ****) out of the limelight so the smart players who actually make an effort are raking in the uncut moolah.

nobody wants to reveal their revenue yet services and stores keep popping up left and right.

for once i would just like to see valve disclose their full earnings for any given year.
