It may not be liked by everyone but I have bought around 90 games that run on that service with no issues at all. I find it a pretty slick service.

i have calmed down a bit

i still hope that this steam stuff is only a possibility for online play like in the past with UBI.
That you can still use tools like the Hyperlobby and are not forced to play via steam !

i guess some clarificationj is needed from official side here please !

Oleg commented some months ago that Steam would be included on the publisher's request, but 3rd party tools like hyperlobby would still be possible. Not sure if that info is till up to date though.

Judging by the conflicting info about the release at UBI I doubt even they know whats going in...

I had a terrible time trying to get Half Life 2 to run on release day, and for the next week as well. Mind you that was 5/6 years ago and I have not had a single issue since then.

No matter what setup you use, there is always going to be some unlucky guy who gets a string of bad experiences.

Well, the big issues will appear if steam tries to mess with customised installs (patching etc.), has compatibility issues or hems in multiplayer modes.

IMHO, the issues Silent Hunter V had with DRM wouldn't have existed if it was a FPS. If your shooting ten bullets at an opponent and your saving game cause the two which are airborne to disappear - it is no big deal. But, if you've spent three hours setting up a torpedo run in a Type-II and saving game causes half of your torpedoes for that tour to vanish from the water...

A lot of these big companies don't understand our genre.
