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

I'm quite the opposite and find nothing more obscenely stupid than using a loader to chainload a loader.

Fair point, I guess I'm more annoyed that I have to go through two DRM for Uplay games on Steam, which is why I think it's obnoxious

Once again, pirates get a hassle free experience, while paying customers have to jump through loopholes to enjoy their game.

Not able to skip the steam phase entirely and just invoke uplay?

I honestly had no problems whatsoever with GFWL. It never crashed, used too much memory, deny access to a game or whatever problems everyone else had with it.

I don't think so. I believe I tried that once and it actually asked me to launch the game via steam. I think they use steam as the drm and use uplay as another filter they can use to add their own patches and advertising... Ideally I would get rid of all other clients completely and just have steam. Even more ideally steam wouldn't be owned by a game developer.

I've seen you say this right after an Orestes post one too many times. I think you should take a break from posting and/or just put him on ignore for a while. Alternately, just tag him as "EA DEFENSE FORCE" and then you can read that aloud every time you see his posts and save yourself the trouble of posting it.

Also: Uplay is annoying and I wish I could dispense with it altogether. It's not that I like it because there's nothing really redeeming about it. I especially hate the fact that the game doesn't update until UPlay updates it. If I don't play Far Cry 3 for a while or whatever and they update the game, I'll launch it thinking I can jump right in and play and find out that I have to update it instead. :( I guess it's a good thing that Ubisoft doesn't update their games a whole lot.

That's part of the appeal of steam is that my games update when they need to and I can just jump right in and play without having to wait. Thanks Uplay...er.. I mean Obama!

At the same time: the other reason I use Steam is for the social aspect of it... If I can't easily post screenshots of my game or statuses, or reviews or whatever, then f*** it. The only thing Uplay has over Origin is that I can somewhat easily do all that social crap, where with Origin I guess I'd have to add the game to steam as a non steam game and hope that it worked?

This is why I only use Uplay for Ubisoft games and Origin for EA games, everything else is Steam.
