Tired, but thought I'd make a thread before heading to bed.

When you say Ubisoft, do you say you-be-soft, or oo-be-soft? Just wondering. Right now I'm listening to the Assassin's Creed Brotherhood soundtrack, my brother got me the game today 'cause my birthday's tomorrow. I'm turning 21, and for the last few years I haven't been as excited as I am now for one of my b-days. It may just be because I don't have a job right now, so I can't really buy anything on my own, and also in the past I never felt I needed anything, but now there are a lot more things I'm interested in; like Blade Runner, and Avatar, so I'm going to get the complete collectors edition of those movies on blu-ray, and the collectors edition for Dead Space 2 on PC.  
 
I have it on PS3 already; I know, may seem dumb to want the same game only on another system, but I like it that much. Anyways, as you can see, when it comes to birthday presents, I don't like to be surprised, so I already know what I'm getting. By the way, I've only played about an hour and a half to two hours of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, and it's amazing so far. It's far better than the other two in my opinion, although there wasn't much to improve on other than the... oh man, I forgot the word. Oh well, sorry. Juuuuuust waiting for the free DLC to download and then I'll be off. 
 
If I think of that word I wanted to say, I'll have to edit this at a later time. 8:36 here in Bothell, WA. 69 percent complete; don't know why it's taking so long to download... How's everyone doing anyways? What games you playing? I can't believe I waited this long to play Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, it's unlike me to let this type of thing go on. I've been playing Starcraft 2 more recently, I watched some of the cut-scenes, and it made me want to play it through. I'm not a huge MP player whatsoever, so RTS multiplayer is out of the question, mostly because RTS' aren't my kind of thing.  
 
I like playing them, but I'm pretty sure that I wouldn't win a match against anyone and I'd probably get some flack for not doing so well. So I'd have to learn, but I'm fine with single player only. Love the immersion of games, not sure about immersion when it comes to Starcraft, but it's good nonetheless. Ughhhhh. Headache. And here is where I end this non blog of a should have been blog (right? Right?! Eh.). So here it goes to fill in the rest of the paragraph. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzgoodbye for now community of giantbomb. 90 percent complete.

The correct pronunciation is "you be soft".

@ajamafalous: I never understood this whole "correct" stuff.Like who says it's correct?I could no it's correctly pronounced "oo-be-soft" wouldn't  really make it that more true.

Ubisoft says so. Like, literally, confirmed by them, it is pronounced "you be soft". It's a combination of ubiquitous and software.

Well the correct thing comes from people wanting to say the name correctly.

Yeah, I used to say oo until I figured out it was you-be-soft. Everyone I know still says oo.

I still kinda use them interchangeably (old habits die hard), but I'd say I use you be soft about 90% of the time. Occasionally I'll let an oo be soft slip.

You-be-soft. 
 
I really liked Brotherhood too. You'll have a lot of fun with it.

@sungahymn: Yeah, it is quite amazing. With each Assassin's Creed game to come, they keep getting better, which is almost kind of sad because I wish it was consistent throughout. I would be playing it right now; I would be playing it all day! But since it's my birthday, I have some other stuff to do.

I maintain that it's oo-be-soft. I'm calling them out on this one, and saying that the whole "ubiquitous software" thing is a damn dirty lie to get me to mispronounce their name. It's all lies, Jerry!

@ShaggE: Yeah, that's cool. I think they should accept both if they don't already. It should never be that someone needs to correct another for saying one or the other.
