Why are they using GFWL?that service is just awful and buggy/late with patches...

Heres trailer:

Skyrim also had GFWL but used steam so hopefully it's like that.

It's bad because the online features would require that garbage GFWL crap

skyrim was just gfw, theres a difference.

As kevnb said, there's a big difference between GFW and GFWL. GFW is just a certification stating that the game meets certain quality requirements regarding installation, 64-bit support, and other things. GFWL is an actual service managing online features of the game, save management, and patching.

The only problem is, it doesn't do any of those things well. Even worse, Microsoft doesn't even really support it any more, so there's no chance of improvement. Mixing Dark Souls with GFWL's propensity to lose or corrupt saves is a recipe for disaster.

That sucks, does that mean it's guaranteed to not use steam? Guess I might have to just wait for the DLC for the PS3 version if it is the case.

The game could still be on Steam but also require you to download that GFWL crap for its online features...many GFWL titles are on Steam to be honest...
