After PC gamers proved that the computer software industry is not some flailing, digitally anorexic leech usurping development time and resources from the console market just to propagate the magical kingdom of piracy, it became apparent that some publishers who made enemies out of PC gamers made a mistake...like Ubisoft. The company is now sorry and they want to be friends with you.
Today Ubisoft announced the sales figures for Q3 of their fiscal year. The company had a better-than-expected quarter due to the strong performance of core games like Assassin's Creed 3 and Far Cry 3.

2012 was full of surprises. If you asked me twelve months ago to guess my top five games of this year, the list would've looked something like this: Grand Theft Auto V, Mass Effect 3, BioShock Infinite, The Last of Us and Tomb Raider. In the end, four of those games weren't even released.
Overall, 2012 wasn't exactly a banner year for video games. There were a handful of standouts in the mix, lots of sequels that did an adequate job of pushing their respective series along, and even a few new IPs that managed to turn some heads. But it's been quite a few years since I had such an easy time selecting the handful of titles that would be considered for my “best of” list.
PS3 gamers will be getting some exclusive DLC for open-world shooter Far Cry 3. High Tides will add new content to the game's co-op campaign early next year.
If you lay down $60 just to bang a virtual chick in first-person you obviously haven't been using the internet to your full advantage.
