Initial Impressions: The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom
For the life of me, I can't understand the mindset of Ubisoft. They were (and perhaps still are), one of the only major competitors of the EA juggernaut, and yet they decide, for whatever reason, to actively destroy their brand name on PCs. Their "always connected to the Ubi-servers" DRM will probably go down in the annals of history right alongside New Coke as a "what were they thinking?" self-destructive period. Perhaps it's the French's historically feeble attempts at proper capitalism, but they just don't seem to understand the relationship of trust that needs to exist between consumer and producer. It takes a long time and lots of effort for a company to be so widely respected that people will buy from it without a second thought. Once that reputation is established, it takes a colossal fool to throw it away.
You're joking, right?
