For those of you not keeping track of this new RPG from Obsidian Entertainment (Known for Knights of the Old Republic 2 and Neverwinter Nights 2), here's the basic premise. You play as a super-secret agent sent to stop missiles from ending up with terrorists. Think of it as Mass Effect set in present day with spies. This game will be available for the PS3, PC, and 360 on June 1st. Since it is on the PC, there is, naturally, discussion about the DRM and Sega, the game's distributor, has released details about the DRM. In a nutshell, it requires an internet connection to activate, though Sega provides alternate methods if needed, you only need to activate once, you get five activations, no continuous internet connection is required to play, uninstalling the game reclaims activations, and there will be a patch released within two years to remove the DRM just in case the servers are taken down. Personally, I think this is fair and Ubisoft should have done something like this. Thoughts?

Ubisoft is going to get shafted by the consumers. Both Assassins Creed 2 and Splinter Cell Conviction haven't even reached near sales of their previous counter-parts. Unfortunately, in my opinion, it is only a matter of time before Ubisoft drops PC entirely from their market...we're a dying breed these days.

has anyone figured out how to play Assassins Creed 2 (due to ubisoft's DRM internet connection required to play problem)?

i have been researching everything from forums,and port opening(im dynamic and my provider says they don't use proxy's).

i cannot believe i wasted 27 bucks on this game.

Have you tried talking with Ubisoft support? Did you try plugging your internet connection into your PC directly from your cable/DSL modem to reduce the chances of firewall problems?

...of course, linking to the actual crack on Bleeping Computer is a good way to get a post locked.
