    It's coming. For example look at Far Cry 3 it already has 4 patches with a 5 rumored to be on the way. hopefully they'll be able to fix the small issues that remain, but honestly they are getting better. Now if only they'd get rid of Uplay, or make it have backup, and minimize to tray features for games.

    I guess they came to the conclusion that not many PC gamers like Ubi by looking at their facebook page. lawl

    You're probably quite correct.

    Fair's fair, both Far Cry3 and Future soldier are very PC friendly, shame they nerfed the Far Cry3 graphics but whatever, next gen consoles will help us out there.
    Also Far Cry3 has many fans it's gotta be said, many folks really enjoyed that one.

    As an AMD user i'm still pissed about AC3! It works like an ass and still not playable like it should be...

    Piss off Ubisoft

    UBI, you are doing it wrong.

    PC gamers r bitches. bitch all the time. and u can never satisfy them. just make graphicly awesome games and they are find. they will talk AA and AF all the time and yet wont care about how the gameplay or story. and the cinematics that you care about alot.

    UBI, just develop graphically awesome games. PC gamers want it.

    Console gamers are looking for gameplay and FUN. UBI you will see, you will be doing better when the PS4 and next xbox will appear.

    This is literally the seventh time they're promising to be nice to PC users. Fool me once... Sorry Ubi, between your DRM, Uplay and other shenanigans, you've lost my goodwill a long time ago and you're never getting it back.

    Seeing a nice stereotyping trend here.

    bigtime isn't completely wrong. look at skyrim, completely garbage game but huge modding community specifically for graphics.

    Am I reading too much into it, or are you saying people wouldn't enjoy Skyrim unless it looked good? Skyrim isn't my coup of tea, but I'm pretty sure most people enjoy this game for the gameplay and not because it looks nice with mods. I spent hundreds of hours playing Fallout 3 and Fallout:NV, whose graphics are dated to say the least, yet that didn't bother me one bit.

    I'd much rather play a passably looking game with excellent gameplay than an interactive benchmark (*cough* Crysis 2 & 3 *cough*).

    the more they improve relationship with pc gamers the more i'll support Ubisoft, already am anyway since the removal of the dreaded DRM/online requirement and i'm totally fine with with UPlay.

    also i loved the last couple of titles especially FC3 and AC3.

    there's a lot they can do to improve though (especially treating loyal customers with the respect they deserve) but if they keep moving forward on this path things will only get better and that's good. ;)

    they're slowly getting there, but only time will tell, during the last couple of month i haven't criticized Ubisoft which is also a good sign.

    I'm saying people only enjoy Skyrim because of the graphical modding, not the actual game. It was specifically supporting this statement:

    That game has horrible gameplay and story, it's all about those high-res textures, modded graphics, enb whatever, etc.

    I personally prefer gameplay over graphics. I loved DmC and the graphics in that game were laughable at a lot of parts.
