Good stuff, specs seems almost identical to the original and it includes the DLC.

Can't wait!

I'm surprised to see it being $60 since it's a PC game. I'm going to wait for Steam deal on this one. Can't really afford buy games at full price until I have good paying job.

Dang. PC users are really getting screwed over now. I got the game at the same price months ago. At least PC games were cheaper in the old days...

The only people who buy it on PC after a 6 month delay are the PC hardcore, and to them it IS a new game. I don't see the issue.

There is an issue with it being the second $60 PC game ever certainly, and we can debate that, but it being full price is perfectly acceptable to me.

Depending on how Ubi does their "online" DRM I will boycott the game. If they don't offer an offline mode and local saves I definitely won't buy it. Activation without limits or soft limits like EA is doing is fine with me but no saving to anything but their cloud space or not being able to play if my net connection goes down is an absolute NO regardless of price.

I finally had a short net downtime on my ISP the other night while I was wanting to play a steam game, and I was pissed. It's the main reason I want to buy my games elsewhere now.

Unacceptable policies:
1) Can't play a game if the net connection is down. No off line mode no sale period.
2) Can't save game if net connection is down.
3) Can't save game locally!!! Cloud crap is a convenience feature not a protection measure and I don't want to use it ever.
