I always hated how Batman: Arkham City used this. Bye bye, useless program.

About time. Hopefully the other Arkham games and related GFWL titles that you can buy off Steam have an update in the near future to strip the GFWL crap.

Now that Origins is finally up to snuff and getting serious with being an actual steam competitor services like these that refuse to keep up deserve to die.

Now when will you be reporting Uplays death?

Hopefully sometime in the near future. I got a free copy of Blood Dragon from a buddy and was hoping to add it via Steam, but it's the Uplay download version sadly.

What the *bleep* happens to GTA4?!

*bleep* you Microsoft, and your lousy ass services that no one wants to use, so they have to be shut down. MS probably paid the developers of half the games that use it to put it into their games so that they'd hope it would get popular.

They'll probably just replace it with something relating to "XBox Live", so you can enjoy paying for online, even if you don't have an XBox.

I agree with you on the Uplay thing, but Origin? Common man, no one uses that shit unless you need to play Battlefield. Then you just side load it with Steam and make a "Non-Steam game" shortcut in Steam so people know you're playing Battlefield. Origin is as useless as all the other ones, except it's ran by the most hated company in the United States.

I hope GTA IV multiplayer will be migrated to the Steam interface. But otherwise, I'm glad it's going. It's caused nothing but a pain in the ass.

People love Xbox Live, but they hate Games For Windows Live. What makes Games For Windows Live worse?

Steam has a near monopoly on the PC-game distribution market, so the more competition, the better.

Well there's the long run around to play most games, especially if GFWL needs an update. Or three. Saves need to be migrated to the game's actual saves folder instead of the GFWL one in order to play when there's no Internet connection. BioShock 2 in particular has a ton of issues. Random GFWL crashes affect certain games (maybe more, not too sure since I just own a few with it). CD key problems with some games, like GTA IV.

Oh, and then there was the initial $50 a year price to use all the multiplayer features that PC gamers have had and continue to have for the low, low cost of $0. Thankfully the subscription requirement was axed not too long after launch, but the fact that it had one to begin with didn't sit well with gamers.

There's probably a lot more I'm glazing over, but that's a fairly good rundown of the big issues with it.

I really hope Dark Souls will be usable without GFWL by the time they shut the service down.
