I won't get into a whole DRM discussion, except to say that UPlay is a no-go for me.  Glad you guys brought it up, actually, because it didn't even occur to me.

Early video left me unimpressed on this one, but the latest peaks are looking better and better.

Still looking forward to this -- like a sober team-version of the Just Cause series.
FIRE IN THE GROGS TOO -- a four-player full team mp of GMT's Vietnam War boardgame Fire in the Lake, recreated in TTS.

Me vs Barth -- DC1: Blitz

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

JC2 was awesome, but I dont want another open world game. I want a game where I have to conduct intelligence-based targeting operations based on analysis and critical thought.

I want a strategic-level AI layer that will react to my operations and conduct counter-operations and defensive planning to challenge me.

The thought crosses my mind multiple times a day. My only fear is that I would put everyone out of business.  ;D

I'm not sure after watching the video. It looked pretty stunning in places and pretty meh in others.

As with previous Ghost Recon games - a good story will pull me in.

I am sure I'll get....looks like early March 2017 is the date and you can pre order for $35.  After some recent pre orders with Europe only versions, likely will hold off a bit..even though this implies worldwide.

Open beta started today...anyone else give it a go? So far I am really enjoying it. There is a lot of trash talk out there about it, but it seems to be mostly posted by people who just hate uplay and ubisoft in general. The game seems to have a lot of variety and there are certainly options for tactical play.

I'm playing solo right now and really having fun. Its like Grand Theft Ghost Recon!

... well the Steam trash talk seems awfully specific in details about problems.  :-\

I've only played for about an hour, but my experience thus far has been seemless. These AAA titles by the big devs are always hammered in forums. Some people are going to hate ubisoft no matter what they do, just like some are going to hate Trump no matter what. Not saying there aren't real problems, but it is a beta and it is a big open world game. They will need time to iron out the bugs.

Played the closed beta earlier in the month, it was pretty fun.  Definately going to be worth the money I paid for it.  Playing with people is way better than your AI team that's for sure.
