No.

Ubisofts DD service is the worst I've ever used. It's abolute garbage. It's useless.

Steam, Origin or GTFO.

Yeah that is bullsh!t. Arkham City does that same thing where you can only download the game 5 times. So stupid.

So did you try download the game 5 times and have it fail, and now it's telling you can't download it?

Most physical copies of games connect to some form of DRM and update anyway. Including the one in your sig.

Because bugs and other problems are better than patches. There's a lot to be said about hypocrisy in this case, but a simple "Some people..." will have to do for now.

I don't mind patches, I actually look forward to them. But sometimes they should maybe take a few weeks more to optimize the game than release a 5GB Patch ON LAUNCH DAY.

There is about a month's timeframe between when a game goes "gold" and is sent off for mass production than the game's launch date. Instead of developers twiddling their thumbs, they find and squash bugs. Granted, they could delay the game to squash those bugs, but with most people available to decent internet bandwidth, it makes more sense for Day 1 patches.

OP: don't get mad at people not understanding your problem if you don't provide all the information in the first place. However, I do agree that download limits are a horrible way to secure company's game assets.

You make a good point, but it didn't used to happen 10 years ago. These days it's more about deadlines and release dates than product quality sadly.

I've never had that happen to me and I just installed Far Cry 3 off the disc so it's not one of them. What games do that? I'm curious because that is ridiculous. As far as the 5 download limit, it's a bunch of bullsh*t. My internet cuts out quite often as well and it's almost guarenteed to do it on big files like games. Why doesn't Uplay just resume the download like every other DD client out?

If therei s no cable in your area, then I understand.

But even on ATT's HSPA+ network and LTE I don't think I've had any disconnects on my laptop.

I have comcast xtreme 105, Ilive in the US lol. (105$ a month) You can get comcast performance 15 for like 60$ a month. It's fairly reliable provided your signals are good, which the tech should obv make sure before hand.

OMG USA is expensive. I get 20Mb broadband with unlimited bandwidth for £20 a month and includes calls and there are cheaper ones out there like TalkTalk 38Mb for £16.50 a month although their customer service rating isn't the best but my provider isn't much better, still gets things done though, just not within the 72 hours they claim, usually closer to 100.

In Aus you pay ~$100/month for a 200GB bundle. Our 500GB bundle is $130. It's fairly reliable provided your signals are good, which the tech should obv make sure before hand.Toxic-Seahorse

Doesn't the downloader say it's downloading 13 files, and currently 3/13? Seems like its half-way done downloading that file.

I don't see a problem here.

Nah there's more to it than that, suppliers in US have a strangehold on internet access and they like it that way. The FCC allows it to happen unlike the UK where the government basically forced BT to let up and allow other companies to use their infrastructure. Sure the size doesn't help but it's not the single cause.

Why does everyone always insist on the minimum wage with Australia? It might be a bit higher but so is everything, Rent, Bills, Internet, etc. Trust me when I say, on minimum wage here, you BARELY live.

I understand that, but it's all relative. You all pay $100 for games and make ~$16 minimum wage. We pay $60 for games and have $7.25 minimum wage. It's all relative.

I actually like Origin better for downloading games (not in general) because it usually has much faster speeds than steam.
