Heroes of Might and Magic VI seems to have installed a program called "Uplay", which it uses to launch (in addition to Steam, mind!)
What exactly is Uplay supposed to be? I notice that when I stop playing, it captchalogs the highlights of my past session (achievements earned, etc.) - which is kinda cool, but also kinda creepy and big-brotherish. Given that I value my privacy, is there anyway to play Uplay games without using Uplay?
Is this just Ubisoft's infamous "always-on" DRM?
