Much better than the original, now how about some content to fill the thing?
I hope Microsoft takes advantage of this
Yes, it is a bit sparse and underused. I downloaded the last version and could not do much with it. I hope they do start putting more content on it.
I haven't used this before but then again I'm not a serious PC gamer. Is it like Steam?
No even close, though it could be if they put it out there better and fill it with content
Steam is a content provider and much, much more. GFWL is pretty much Xbox Live on PC (so, sh1t). No one likes GFWL. It's clunky, slow and downright annoying.
Which is disappointing because, since Microsoft has a huge amount of resources and influence, they could have made it something worth using.
GFWL isn't that bad Panda, it was at one point but it has vastly improved since launch. The service is just...a mess. 1. Nothing is connected, meaning the ingame client can't communicate with the marketplace and vice versa. 2. You can't buy games on the marketplace, Microsoft alone has some great classic games that if put up on the marketplace would do great. 3. Not a lot of titles support GFWL 4. Microsoft doesn't make first party PC games anymore. =/
I know it's improved since its launch, but its still a horrible service even today. I've lost countless GTA IV save-games. I hated it in FO3, and I REALLY hated it in GOW. It's so utterly useless..
GFWL is mostly useless in games, and in some cases, actually becomes a hindrance to the game. Microsoft shouldn't have made it if they were gonna shift their priorities to the 360 anyway. I hope it dies out soon, it's so annoying with little to no support from the creators.
ms sold their soul to console war. idiots!
This service is CRAP Its time to let it die Steam FTW
