I don't have an issue with this sort of DRM. It's better than all other forms of DRM, in my opinion. I've got a business-class internet connection (read <1% downtime) so a required connection doesn't really affect me.

I understand why some people might have a problem with this sort of DRM but they should feel free not to purchase a product with such a requirement just like how I'm not going to buy any more Ubisoft-published games. Which sucks because Far Cry 3 looks pretty awesome but I'm prepared to stick to my guns on this one.

What I'm not doing is loudly opining how horrible everything is and how much people who do choose to purchase Ubisoft games are somehow lesser human beings. Chill out, angry folks.

This isn't about the facts.

I mean the creationist counter argument is that it contradicts a bunch of fairy tales written thousands of years ago by sand people.

You aren't going to be able to get the idea of evolution through that brainwashed blank stare they throw up when you start talking about science.

Am I the only person who read "sand people" and immediately thought of the deserts of Tatooine *hoooooooark hoark hoark*?

Nope. It makes sense when you think about it. The earth had bigger oceans long ago and the Sand People lived in the Dune Sea.
