    To celebrate 30 years (and get us to actually use uPlay) Ubi is going to give away a bunch of games for the rest of the year.

    Starting with the very decent Prince of Persia : Sands of time.

    More details after the jump:
    Ubisoft Is Giving You A Reason To Use Uplay: Free PC Games | Kotaku Australia

    This month (Oct) it's the classic Beyond Good and Evil.

    I'd lost my disc for this so super happy.

    hmm, not sure its worth it to use uPlay. TBH I've stopped buying games that run on uPlay, every time I've tried to use it it has been such a PITA. I don't want any games enough to endure it.

    Uplay doesn't suck like it used to.. I still prefer steam but using it doesn't make me grit my teeth anymore. :)

    Latest is Blood Dragon for FarCry 3. Since I have FC3 I may as well get this add on while it's free.

    Probably the last freebie.. unless they're continuing past the new year. I doubt it though.

    DOH!
    So sad that I missed out.
    I got Assassin's Creed III just now, but I'm not much a AC fan.

    Those Uplay prices seem really high, I wonder if they prefer to encourage sales through Steam or other platforms?
