When Ubisoft announced their incredibly restrictive always-online DRM for Assassin's Creed II, I swore that I would never buy the game for PC and have since given all Ubisoft games a wide berth when it comes to PC ports. Even though Ubisoft has loosened their stranglehold on PC customers recently, Rayman: Origins uses Steamworks for protection. Still, even with that, and the always-online DRM being removed from Assassin's Creed II in favor of a more reasonable online authentication method, I didn't feel right paying for the game, despite AC II's obvious quality. Luckily for me, when I decided to buy a new video card, an Nvidia GTX 680, the only one available happened to come with 3 free games: Assassin's Creed (which I already owned on Steam), Assassin's Creed II, and Assassin's Creed: Revelations. This was almost ideal for me, since I was interested in picking up the series again in anticipation of AC III, which is the first in the series that I've been actively excited about since the second game came out 3 years ago.
