Their DRM gives a lot of legitimate owners trouble, myself included. Some of the project leads have also made some disparaging remarks about PC gamers. I just want the games I payed for to work.

I already feel the scorn of being a PC gamer....it's only been 4 days...

C'mon Ubisoft

This seems appropriate to both the tone and content of this thread.

  1. I found the Ubisoft PC titles themselves and ports actually pretty decent overall. In fact I even prefer the PC controls of the AC franchise to console controls (due to easier camera control hence more precise traversal/jumping)
  2. The Ubisoft DRM however has been pretty bad and has prevented me from playing the games I purchased several times.
  3. That said the AC series have pretty much always come out later for PC at every iteration, so this is not exactly surprising.

This reminds me of this interview GameSpy did:

GameSpy: So when's the PC release date?
Ubisoft PR: October 30th.
GameSpy: Yeah, but when's the real PC release date?
Ubisoft PR: It's October 30th.
GameSpy: Uh huh. And can you say that with a straight face?
Ubisoft PR: You can ask me as many times as you like, but the answer will be the same.
GameSpy: Very well, let's move on. So, when will you announce the delay of the PC version?
Ubisoft PR: ...

Anyone that bought From Dust PC when it launched knows what Ubisoft on PC is all about.

Played all four Assassin's Creed games on PC and loved them. They look great, they run great, the DRM is near flawless, mouse & keyboard controls are perfect, and the games themselves are masterpieces. 
 
AC3 delayed? Means more polish, a better game, so hell yeah I don't mind.

#25 Posted by Sooty (8082 posts) -

After From Dust on PC Ubisoft can get fucked, and then fucked again by a minotaur.

but Driver SF was superb on the PC.

i judge on a game by game basis

#27 Posted by MentalDisruption (1664 posts) -

No surprise there, but at least it'll give me some more time to play other games that are releasing around that time of year.

#28 Posted by Ares42 (2778 posts) -

Has any AC game not come out way later on PC ? I sorta figured they weren't even aiming for a PC release the same day....

Indeed, he was a brilliant asshole, and God bless him for it. :P

#35 Posted by Edwardryu (440 posts) -

so they will delay. I am not surprise at all. this is what they do for PC gamers. it's an excuse that they need more time to make a port to PC. but look, Ubi.

you delayed 'ghost recon future soldier' as well. but what was really improved anyway? few patches did even make a game worse. what's up with slowing down frame rate so much for mission 10 to 12?

why is it happened even I play it with my powerful gaming laptop? I just don't accept such a excuse anymore.

One minor game gets a shitty port so you're denying yourself from the awesomeness of the rest of their pc library? Maybe you should stop acting like a whiny little child and make decisions based on how the actual game runs on a pc.

Maybe you should shut the fuck up and let me decide if I want to hand over $60 to a publisher that green lights a PC port with literally unplayable mouse controls. If you don't treat every Ubisoft PC release with skepticism, you will be burned.

I'm done here.

I love the Internet kiddy rage. Maybe you haven't noticed but every $60 game Ubisoft has released over the last few years have been pretty much flawless ports. Saying "fuck Ubisoft with a frog" because of one fuckup with a minor game is like calling Michael Jordan (best basketball player ever) garbage and worthless because he missed a game winning shot in a summer game against a group of cartoon midgets with superpowers.

If you take Ubisofts past ports of games that matter there is no reason to believe AC 3 won't be a great port and the best available version of the game.
#39 Posted by C_Cage (56 posts) -

They're not flawless at all. Assassin's Creed games have always had messed up mouse controls. It's rather annoying that they can't get it right. In the first game it was only a slight problem that the cameras movements were based off of acceleration. Some how they managed to make it even worse for the other three games. Then the developer has the gall to insinuate that their games work better with a gamepad then with their crippled mouse and keyboard implementation. It's funny how they forgot to mention that none of the Assassin's Creed games really utilized analogue control in the first place. They didn't even use 8 directions for combat targeting and climbing.

Serves those dirty, filthy pirates right.

#41 Posted by Wuddel (2099 posts) -

So kinda hiyaking the thread. I head Ubi will drop their DRM with ACIII. That got me excited about playing it on the PC. What will it be. Straight up the steam stuff? I will play this with a controller anyway.

#42 Posted by DJJoeJoe (1329 posts) -

@Wuddel: I think they are yes, should slow down people being all uppity about that stuff for a while.

Steam said Nov 2012 anyway, so I expected it to be released around the end of November.

There's not even a shortage of games until AC3s release
