I don't see what the big deal is about dedicated servers?

Is anyone bothered about online? The last two games certainly weren't much cop. FC2, especially, was a bit rubbish IMO.

It has got a separate online co-op mode so I'd imagine yes.
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.

Doesn't really matter, unless you have the words Duty, Halo or Gears in your game title no-one will be playing it online anyway. Publishers really need to wise up to this and stop forcing all devs to waste development time on a multiplayer component when they could be using that time to make the single player even better. pfft.

While the actual multiplayer gameplay in previous Far Crys was quite average, it was still fun because you could build your own maps. I had loads of fun playing custom maps on Far Cry Instincts with my mates, back on the original Xbox. If only Halo had a proper map creator instead of Forge. Halo gameplay + Far Cry map editor = Win.

What is this uplay thing? Is it on pc versions or something? There's an option on menus to get to it from ubisoft games (well, AC3 xbox anyhow) and if you complete actions you get points for things like themes. What's bad about it? Or are they up the their always-online tricks on pc?
