Aside from UPlay, generally I've had a pretty good opinion of Ubi. Beyond Good and Evil, Rayman, and Outland are all great (my PSN avatar has been the hero from Outland because MAN is that a cool avatar), and I've also enjoyed all three Far Cry games. Between Child of Light and Might and Magic X being an actual turn-based grid RPG, I have to say that they aren't hurting my feelings one bit. Good on them.
And good call, Neal-- I think you're exactly right.
