Microsoft has told NeoGamr that they have no plans to discontinue its Games For Windows Live service, even though it plans to offer Xbox Live for Windows 8 owners.
They should just ditch GFWL its just a bad service
Nobody likes GFWL. They need to dump it entirely and come up with a new service that isn't completely awful.
Or they could just leave it to Steam and Origin.... BWAAHAHAHAHAHA. Couldnt say Origin without bursting out laughing. I know a few people who prefer GFWL to Steam though. Oh so silly people they are :P
Origin is much better than GFWL, which says a lot. GFWL is the absolute worst, hands-down.
Very few things in this world are as universally hated as GFWL.
They just need to end the god damn service. It's freaking terrible.
they should just fix it, losing save games is not cool.
They've "relaunched" it several times. They're not going to fix anything. I tolerated it up until the day it deleted my Batman: Arkham City save 15 hours into my playthrough. Now I want it removed from all PC games.
I dont have a problem with GFWL as it comes to achievements. I like the fact that I can play a pc game and it registers across my xbox live account. I also like the fact that I can play a pc game and message people on my xbox live friends list. Everything else after that I can live without. I dont even buy games from there as they are too high. On that note, why are we still paying the same price for DD games as store retail? Thats on any service, STEAM, ORIGIN, GFWL, whatever. I thought going digital was going to drop prices. Yeah Right!!!!
it does, but not day 1. You can get games for dirt cheap if you just wait for the sales.
This is true. Most of the pc games that I own, I buy when they hit 10.00 or less. Sometimes even 5.00 or less during a steam sale. You have to love those steam bundles.
I'm with you about collecting achievements, friends and leaderboards etc on one service wish Microsoft would put some effort into GFWL then it could be worth using.
MS should introduce achievements for PC games and that's it, leave everything else alone.
Games for windows live was starting to die out, then Dark souls decided it needed to use it.
