    Ubisoft never change

    The Division Vikings Edition just dropped on PC 2 years late aren't you excited to play this boring repetitive game all over again and paying double full price for it, wasting your time grinding in this empty lifeless open world for hundreds of hours while whaling millions in microtranscations on this single player game that's artificially filled with crap to waste your time to encourage their purchase? Aren't you excited to install more bloatware on your PC that ruins your performance and ensures the game you bought will become permanently unplayable in a few years? Aren't you excited to make another account on a crappy privacy invasive service that goes down all the time and bans you for no reason? Aren't you excited to buy this same asset flipped expansion you already own, now on a proper platform without support for any of it's features that actually makes using it worth it?

    I mean for real this company is just on another level.

    They haven't made an original game for the past 7 or so years, attempted to permanently destroy with various levels of success everything great they made in the past scamming everyone. They force use of their useless broken bloatware on top of having Denuvo, VMProtect and been the one to popularize always online DRM over a decade ago which they now use to take your games away forcing you to buy the new ones.

    They refuse to even support full features of their own launcher yet alone Steam except for mictrotranscations, the games crash every 5 mins from memory leaks if you attempt to play but don't worry the cash shop always works flawlessly.

    They're the one that calls the best platform's business model "unreasonable" while literally selling the same game 5 times over every year with 5 different special editions, loads of DLCs, loads of microtranscations and loot boxes, driving every single iconic franchise into the ground by turning them into a weird combination of campaign co-op pvp always online lifeless live services and mobile games only to crawl back once their stock price starts dipping low enough.

    FFS they're the ones that install anti-cheat in their single player games to force you to buy their boosters and "time savers" because they design the game on propose to waste it.

    Weren't they also looking to sell off their company for some quick cash to Tencent because they have absolutely no idea how to run it and actually make it successful long term? Just sell the IPs to Embracer already and go bankrupt, make the suffering end.

    Just saying this is probably the weakest, most pathetic Steam comeback out of all of them, just putting out a turd in the corner of a place people actually spend money at won't really make it any more appealing.

    When's Division Re-scammed, Division with Hackers, Division with Pirates, Division with Cars and Division Tom Clancy's Rolling In His Grave Edition launching so I can add them to the ignore list as well?

      Assassin's Creed Valhalla is excruciating 0

      Around the 35 hour mark of Assassin's Creed Valhalla the game began to lose me, but then I acquired an ability that completely turned the combat on its head. This ability allowed me to dual wield heavy weapons, an absurd proposition that was as ludicrously powerful as it sounds. All of a sudden I had the power to shear limbs off of enemies with single attacks, pounding them into the ground and looking quite silly doing it. Finally, after nearly two dozen hours of unchanging tedious fighting, I h...
