Uplay

I like it, ok? I like that you can get some rewards for achievments. Steam should do same thing.

I agree. I like the fact that it activates from Steam. I have no problems with it but I also only have one game right now that uses it so what do I know. *shrugs*

Yeah, the little bonuses you can unlock for the achievements are nice little tidbits.

I got 20 MS point for my BD. I'm trying not to spend them all in one place.

Got no issue with Uplay clean and neat but I don't pick DD providers for bennies but for games. I guess if you can get both it's nice.

Installed it for Far Cry 3 (came with my GPU). It's alright... No issues with it

"They'll have to pay me to play this game! Oh, wait."

Not really fond of it, though. My catalog of DRM access programs is getting difficult to count on one hand. Steam, Origin, GFWL, Uplay, Desura (though I don't actually have Desura, yet...).

Exactly. If you need unlock-able wallpapers to keep you going, you probably aren't having very much fun.

Well wallpapers (themes for console users) are usually the first thing you can unlock but if you save up, you can unlock DLC which can be new characters, missions, maps, etc.

You not only get gaming but rewards for gaming. It's the icing on the cake.

It was fun unlocking stuff for Driver: San Francisco, plus the client was quick and not bloated.
Though I'm sure one day it will be updated to piece-of-crap status.

I also like the way achievements award points for extra game goodies (both in and out of the games). I think that's a smart move.

A digital distribution platform created by Ubisoft. It's similar to Steam which is owned by Valve and Origin which is owned by EA.
