    All for 30$.

    Very nice package (IMO).
    Wow, that's awesome. I don't think I've seen Anno 2070 for less than a tenner on its own. For those in UK-land, it's 2 for £10 or the whole set for £20. No prizes for guessing the two I'm going to get :)

    So has the always online DRM been patched out yet for Settlers 7 and Anno 2070? I'm interested in both, but that would be a deal-breaker.

    Okay, so if you guessed Anno 2070 and Settlers 7 you were wrong! Settlers 7 was beaten by AssRev because of a desire to not have 5000 lengthy strategy games to find time for.

    The only information about DRM is "U-Play", so I suppose the games are only redeemable on Ubisoft's service?

    Don't know about Always-On DRM, but Anno2070 still has that abominable Tages DRM.
    And apparently, so does Rayman Origins.

    Anno's DRM is annoying but not always-on. It has a launcher, which launches UPlay, which launches the launcher, which launches the game, which requires you to log in. A bit of a hassle, but after all of that you can play offline (you don't get access to the Ark when offline though, as it's contents are synced with Ubi's servers)

    Edit: just to clarify, you can play offline without logging in, there is an offline mode, but you still have to go through all the launchers

    Battle vs. Chess is Steam's daily deal. John's Impressions were generally positive, but I wonder if the game is actually fun or if the novelty wears off quickly. Did anyone play it for a reasonable amount of time?

    Na, I'm pretty sure Rayman was completely void of DRM from the beginning. It got quite a bit of praise for this alone.

    The GetLoaded offer pages says it's got TAGES - that's possibly something GetGames have added over and above UPlay's requirements - or a mistake - or whatever...

    The Deluxe Edition is the same price as the regular one at GetGames - that's half the Ubi price (not available in the USA tho)

    ... when they're only giving out U-Play codes? That'd be like GreenManGaming adding StarForce to Steamworks games. This is hopefully GetGames messing up the description. Or ...

    You actually download the games from GetGames. It's similar to GamersGate's method.

    Still, I highly doubt that GetGames would go through all the hassle to add something like TAGES when every version of Rayman: Origins on the planet is DRM-free.

    GetGames normally supply games with their own pre-installer which requires a code before it will install the game - so they could easily do that AND install/update/require UPlay as well...

    UPlay doesn't - AFAIK - have a 'code' system like Steam so you can't just 'add' a game to it anyway - e.g. they have to give you a download of some sort and that would be effortlessly piratable without some 'code' system.

    When I got AC2 from Gamersgate I had to download it from them, install that and it picked-up and 'installed itself into' my existing UPlay setup - unless things have changed, I'd guess that's what's going to happen here too.

    Note: I then uninstalled AC2 and it remains in my UPlay library of course - I can reinstall it from there in the future (or at least it appears to offer that option - I#ve not tried it). Splinter Cell Conviction also came from Gamersgate - same deal, it's now a UPlay title...

    Do Steam-purchased Ubi games require UPlay also?

    Guild Wars 2 - 'instant' code - £26.99

    Note: If you use PayPal you may get into their 'extended verification' service which can take a few hours before you get your code - use plastic and that tends not to happen...

    Yes. At least Driver:SF and FC3 do.
