Jeezus can microsoft do anything right?

 

Crashes while updating, troubles login in, changing resolutions of games, what a joke.

 

And I thought steam was bad LOL.

 

Ok, needed to vent, vent over :)

I also hate GFWL, i think i had to register for it with the Dirt 2 game to play online. Took me ages to figure out and also had similar problems.

I don't mind it. Have had occasional problems with it, but nothing major, usually an easy fix. I like it for games that use matchmaking, much easier to get a game with friends going.

It has many issues, for me I have been mostly lucky but I know of many with nightmare stories.

The only games I play that uses GFWL is DOW II and Chaos Rising and AoE online.

 

You couldn't write this in your pink locked diary? :)

Why.

Dirt 2 gave me lots of problems when I got it; still haven't played it because GFWL is a headache.

 

Steam is great but.

Yeah, GFWL turned DOW2 , and it's first expansion, into a horrible experience for me. Just bloody, bloody horrible.

I far prefer steam, impulse, anything in fact.

Hell, Gamespy Arcade never caused so many hassles.

But what?

You're one of those dudes that just don't understand the use of 'but' at the end of a sentence.

 

But I don't care! :P

Oh I understand it, I just refuse to acknowledge it as a sentence finisher.

Guess I'm just not bogan enough for it. ;)

 

As for GFWL sucking... this is the reason my GFWL name is GFWLTERRIBAD.

Mostly 'cause everything else I put in was already taken, and I'm not 12, so I refuse to put 1000 numbers after my name.

 

That, and GFWL is quite annoying... especially with games like GTA IV, when there's Steam, Rockstar social club, GFWL... blah blah blah.

Never had an issue while using it with F1 2010 or DiRT 2 though.

 

Gonna try it out most likely with DiRT 3 tonight.

No problem with GfWL as I use it for F1 2010 and possible F1 2011 this year. And it hasn't had a problem with the guys over at the Atomic F1 championship so I don't know what the problem is...

The only problem I really had with it was that GTA4 has it's saves tied to your account. I felt like continuing my game when the net was down due to some sor tof line work and I had to play something else. That is pretty annoying though.
