I've payed for & downloaded far cry 3 from steam. Whenever I try and use the shortcut exe (or steam play button) nothing happens. It appears to load for like 5 seconds and then stops. Uplay does not run or anything. I've Uplay installed and an account. I've uninstalled the game and reinstalled it. Restarted my pc etc etc. This is the very first time I've encountered any problems playing a game on this pc. Video drivers are up to date. DX etc etc.
Also, Uplay will run if I go into the games directory & use the exe there. But ofcourse, it wants a cd-key from Uplay, when i bought the game from steam. The steam key doesn't work... This has got to be the biggest run a around, bunch of bs I've ever encountered regarding pc games. It's fu***** silly... seriously.
I've contacted steam, but, well... we know how that can go. So, I've come straight to the games forums.

In steam, I went to the library,clicked on properties and selected the Local files tab and clicked the Verify integrity of game cache button. When It was done it said 1 files failed to validate and will be reaquired. whatever that means.
