What the hell? Nobody told me you needed a UPlay account --

Well damn. Sucks I can't just pop into Blood Dragon straight from Steam.

I had UPlay install/update and/or throw me errors for the past five minutes just to let me play it ._.

Yep, not a fan of uplay. It does work tho, and I haven't had any real problems with it.

It should be common sense by now you need UPlay for all Ubisoft games like how you need Origin for all EA games. You living in a cave TC?

Also it should be streamlined after the initial setup... You should be able to just launch it from steam and end up in the game after uplay launches automatically. So just think of it as another splash screen.

It works fine.

All it takes up is a few moments before loading your game. Just be patient.

Nah, just going through my backlog and never paying attention to complaint topics.

Yeah, finally got it to that point. Just sucks that I literally had to quit out of everything and re-launch it to end up playing it at all.

@mcnichoj

GFWL was worse than origin and uplay combined.

Uplay is pretty annoying. Origin got a lot more flak and it isn't as obnoxious or intensive as Uplay

Its more so in my opinion. While the client itself is fine, I prefer the steam-uplay system. I want all my games in one library... if EA wants their origin client so bad I wouldn't mind having it pop up when I launch a game that needs it via steam so long as it opened and closed quickly.
