Apologist says Ubisoft's DRM "isn't that bad"
Apologist says Ubisoft's DRM "isn't that bad"

A Hooked Gamers editorial published last week and making the blog rounds today makes the claim that Ubisoft's always-on DRM plan, which I've discussed here already, is actually pretty cool or something. Through a rambling escapade of analogies and references to electrical plugs on planes and the 360's common red-ring-of-death, in the end the final judgement is that Ubisoft's DRM is both progressive and "ahead of its time."

Beta impressions: R.U.S.E.

R.U.S.E. is a upcoming RTS developed by Eugen Systems and published by Ubisoft.

Future Ubisoft games to require constant online connectivity? [UPDATE]

Ubisoft has stated with the release of upcoming title The Settlers 7, they will require online connectivity to activate and play their future games.
