Prince of Persia, Now With More Assassin

Illustration for article titled Prince of Persia, Now With More Assassin

Want to put the fear of a fancy and fashionable assassination into your foes in Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands? Then get thee to the nearest Ubisoft game and sign up for their Uplay scheme.

To make the Prince of Persia look a lot more like Ezio from Assassin's Creed II, you'll need to acquire Uplay Win "units," based on your accomplishments in various Uplay-enabled Ubisoft games. It's free, you'll just need to meet the Uplay requirements to do so.

If you'd prefer to look like the Prince's brother, Malik, you can apparently text message the word PRINCE to 44144, if that makes sense.

I hate UPlay. The concept is fundamentally cool, but it's executed horribly. Instead of being integrated into the game, the developer forces to to register for their lame service to access the material that was already in the game.

While I was playing Assassin's creed II, those shitty UPlay bubbles kept popping up, telling me to register. Registering, of course, involved signing up for YET ANOTHER goddamn service exclusive to a particular provider.

I just love logging into six different profiles to get permission to access THE CONTENT THAT SHIPPED WITH THE GAME.
