    I guess what really gets me is that I've been trying really, really hard to be more laid-back lately, and today I was really starting to feel a lot happier - and then this. :crying:

    I hope they get it figured out.

    Me too; and the boycott thing is not just a threat. If this doesn't work SOON, I will never again be a customer.

    One of many games that I had to torrent despite owning a copy, only the hacked versions with the copy and verification crap stripped off actually work. Great game once the teenagers have fixed it.

    FC2 is/was an awesome game. I loved setting fires to the checkpoints, heh.

    It's sad but will all these copy protection schemes companies are treating their paying customers like criminals while the criminals actually get to play the game.

    When these types of schemes were new I ran into the same problem and ended up downloading a cracked version of the title just so I could play it. Now I'm actually at the point where I wait a month or so before buying a PC game just to find out what kind of copy protection crap a game is infested with. Generally I find out it's a scheme that requires an Internet connection to activate the game and hence I decide to just not buy it (nor pirate it, I want nothing to do with such titles). This is also one of the major reasons I dumped Microsoft Windows as my operating system.

    To the original poster I'm guessing Ubisoft will allow you access to your game again (how noble it would be that they would allow you to play a game you paid for after begging for permission). But do take note that this kind of thing is going to be very common with any PC game produced in the last five or so years. My advice is anytime you want to buy a new PC game do a search for the game title plus the term DRM (in this case "Far Cry 3 DRM" would be your search term). You'll probably get a plethora of links going to forums where people have run into trouble with the copy protection mechanism of that specific title. If you don't the game is probably OK.

    Well, they done did the deal, and the guy who emailed me back had his own highly-disguised snarky comeback, but rather than be annoyed by that, it actually highly amused me. :supergrin:

    Ubisoft has been mostly forgiven.

    Exactly! You can't just type that and not follow through with what was sent to you.
