My System Specs

I'm not surprised - whoever put the slave collar on Ubisoft's developers has been finding the most intrusive DRMs they could get their hands on for a while now.
Ubisoft had my boycott since they put SecuRom DRMs with the hard activation limits (FarCry 2, Assassin's Creed 1) and they definitely didn't gain points for requiring an active Internet connection for 1-player games (Assassin's Creed 2).
When I see an ad for a game that I'm interested in, I do these:
1. Check out a review that actually shows gameplay
2. Google search "<game name> DRM"

There's too many game developers out there that don't do this for me to contribute to those that do.
