I’m weary of hearing about greatly anticipated games which are ruined by online activation. So, I’m really happy to report that the DRM-infected game du jour is Far Cry 2, a game I wouldn’t play if you paid me money.
This is good news for publisher Ubisoft as well, since this means they didn’t lose a sale. I was never going to buy the thing anyway. (If you were looking forward to buying Far Cry 2, then sorry. You can’t. You can only rent it.)
The bad news is, this means the lemmings at Ubisoft are following the idiots at EA, and sooner or later they’ll come out with a game I do care about.
