Hitler expresses his views on "Games for Windows - LIVE".
Hitler didn't even mention how much of a buggy mess patching games in LIVE is. Many people with Fallout 3 weren't able to play their game after the patches where released because GFWL would freeze when they tried to install etc. And they couldn't just play the game unpatched either, GFWL won't let you play a game if a patch has been released until you install the patch. (assuming that you can, otherwise you've just lost your 50 dollar game)
Oh, and patching via GFWL can also delete your savefile.
And I just found out about quite possibly the absolute worst flaw in GFWL, which says alot. I don't know what to say. Just look at this:
Jesus fucking christ.
Oh, and changing your gamertag costs money. Yes. REAL. FUCKING. MONEY.
The out-of-game GFWL client is a piece of shit, you can't chat with people or patch games from it.
Basically you need to be running a GFWL game to use it's full functionality, which is retarded and doesn't make any sense.
I couldn't mention all of these things in the video simply because it wouldn't fit. And there's EVEN MORE problems with GFWL that I haven't even mentioned in the video OR the video description.
Info for people who don't know what this is about:
Games for Windows Live is a program for PC games by microsoft which essentially tries to port XboX Live funtionality to the PC Games that use GFWL. (achievements, friend lists system, matchmaking etc)
However it is not a very good port of these functionalities, and the things that work well on consoles don't necessarily work very well on the PC and/or don't live up to it's standards.
2018 and this is still accurate... I saw the day when Microsoft held further development of the Halo: Online mod by ElDewrito for the PC platform, still playable, but what's the point? Everyone loves playing games that are being supported with updates.
I hope one day Microsoft gets their sh<3t together and start supporting the PC platform like they used to do, would be great for us if they get to revive GFWL by fixing it completely. I saw so much potential on that platform...
"After two years of updates "Games for Windows Live" is still a steaming piece of shit"
The very first line already had me coughing from laughing, both because it's funny and because I couldn't agree more.
This video like nailed all of my feelings. I really hope MS sees this one. And does something about this trend they have been following. Then I can stop buying their games for no reason because I only bought it to help in the event that I get caught using the cracked version of the game. Its illegal but at least I do own a copy. The cracked version makes it easy to just double click and......play. I don't even know how to use games for windows. All I know is that it is dramatically worst than the shit I gotta deal with using Steam. Like when you click on a game to start and Steam wont let it start cause its doing.......whatever the fuck its doing in the background there. Ever been somewhere and there are people talking in a different language and you think they are talking about you but you cant tell. Thats how I feel when Steam works to start my game. At least it starts (after i run task manager and kill steam then restart it). Windows Live or games for windows (whatever you call that....thing) a while back for some reason would not let me play Fable. I broke things that day. From experience I have learned to only break inexpensive things. And now i'm ranting. I guess the point I am getting at is I have used Games for Windows once..........just once. I never want to repeat it again.
+Bane Morris let me put it like this
consoles LITERALLY have nothing going for them other than
-controllers (which some pc games have)
-the social aspect
aka being able to play with multiple people on the same machine in the same room
-not needing constant fucking upgrades (though updates that can take hours replace it)
so dont worry pc wont die for a good while, and if it does it will be because it deserved to die
GfWL has a lot of problems-- Slowing things down, popping up and being in the way, etc., but messing up voice chat is, in my book, a GOOD thing. I don't want to hear other people talking on a game. Fuck that. Anything that makes all the snotty 12-year-olds, stupid rednecks, and illiterate neckbeards become muted in a game is a GOOD thing.
i cant even play game because some gamertag is not same as username and shits like that fuck this shit
fuck this crap
fuck worst microsoft program ever
fuck gfwl team
fuck all halo 2
fuck everythinggg !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just put a few (very successful) hours into a new Dark Souls run, haven't played the game in a while.. Thought, "Whatever, I can run this in Offline mode." Quit game to menu only to see "NEW GAME" as the only option and realize that 5bosses and some lucky drops were all for naught. Probably be a while before I decide to pick the game up again now. Thanks a lot GFWL. FUCK YOU, what an undulating river of steaming dog shit. No respect for Microsoft or their decisions since Gates left the helm. They are tearing down everything the man's set up.
This sums up my thoughts succinctly, how can you defend a system that destroys the gaming experience. The whole process is like 1985 Russia or the US Postal service. I feel like the women crying every time I get a game on Steam and then learn I have to log in to windows live (stab me with a fork). Now I have to once again go online to figure out how to bypass this ridiculous system that is being rightly satirized so 'brilliantly' in this video 5 years ago. A new achievement account needs to be created for those who care.
I just lost 3-4 hours of playing on red faction querrila becose of this fucking piece of shit. didnt let me save anymore and I tried to relog BUT HOLY SHIT. It kicked me out of the game because I wasnt logged in. Thats some really bad bullshit.
Steam is a great program barley uses up any memory and is insanely easy to use. Origin on the other hand makes me want to never play BF3 ever again.... I ended up watching this because in my rage i asked google why GFWL is so fucking shit
I used to be able to play dark souls online. Then somehow my outlook account got hacked and gfwl wont let me play online anymore. WHAT IS THE FUCKING POINT OF DOING SOMETHING LIKE THIS?!! I payed for this fucking game IT'S MINE you get it winfuck? God I can't even believe this shit, go fuck yourself gfwl.
I dont give a fuck about push to speak. Why I think GFWL is the worst piece of shit is the machine limit activation DRM. GFWL can go fuck itself, i buy games all the time, the only games that I pirate are EA and GFWL games... Support the devs, and fuck greedy managers !
GFWL is such a retarded horseshit DRM, No it's more than DRM it's a fucking Trojan, but far worse.
Any game from here on in that relies on GFWL i will PIRATE and play on fucking private servers.
Microsoft has made so that PIRATING games is actually more beneficial than legitimate ownership. I don't want to Pirate games, but i cannot use the products i pay for with this GROTESQUELY dysfunctional piece of utter fail software. Go die MS fucktards!
it could be good it just needs to have some attention paid to it. Windows 8 has full integration. The OS boots up and signs into your gamertag/LIVE ID just like on 360. Hopefully this means they'll actually remember that GFWL exists and do some work on it
Its not in needs of a major update, its in need of being burned to the fucking ground. To this day i have not been able to finish one of my favorite games bioshock 2. It would be my all time favorite if i could actually play it. Yet years later they havent fixed anything and its still unplayable *as in at all*.
That comment is useless. This guy raged about acheiments being useless. I disagree as do alot of people . BUT that is not the real problem. There are several MAJOR problems such as rendering your games completely unplayable, Deleting saved games regularly, not letting you play multiplayer due to "not being patched" even though the game is patched, Patches not actually working after downloaded, OS crashing after playing the games for a few minutes. I could go on and on but those are the worst.
those are just some of the none essential things that are wrong with it. The biggest problems are as follows.
1. simply not being able to play most or any of your GFWL products at all.
2. deleted saved games.
3. Consistent OS crashes due to shit coding.
4. Computer freezing
5. Not letting you play multiplayer without updating *try to update and it never happens or crashes 3/4's of the way through.
These are just SOME of the problems with GFWL, this is one of the worst programs EVER.
Honestly, I can't even sign in with my account. It never downloads my profile correctly.
It is always asking to do a fucking update, yet it never updates at all. It's tedious to make a new profile, and the fact that I can't save my game unless I do this tedious fucking system, is stupid.
I render steam achievements useless because they don't go towards anything on your profile. Only those who have ever been achievement whores on Xbox LIVE can ever understand why GFWL is awesome and more games should be on it. If you've never cared about achievements and never owned a 360, then you have no right to comment on whether GFWL achievements are useless or not
Tried to play Gotham City Impostors through Steam.
"Shit, forgot password to GFWL, oh well. I'll make a new account"
*This cd key is already boopity bopped with another shitty fuckin account FAG!*
"Oh Microsoft... go fuck yourself."
That's the fucked up part! you have to be goddamn connected to GAYS FOR FUCKED UP WINDOWS LI_FUCKING_VE in order to save your game... you can't play offline and if there is an update you have to wait about 2 hours WITHOUT PLAYING...(that of course, if you want to FUCKING SAVE YOUR FUCKING GAME) for example, I bought Batman Arkham City and after 1 hour I managed to install it... now, of course, I wanted to play te fucked up game but noooo... I have to install the frickin' upgrade... in 2 hours!!
I bought a pack with Bioshock I and II in steam. Never had a problem before... Until I had to install this Shitty something whatever live. I started playing IN STORY MODE and after 2 hours, when I want to save my game, I can't. Could somebody tell WTF is this ? Also I'm pretty sure that my saved games will be stored in my C unit... Which is almost full because I like to let it just for the OS. Microsoft way.
holy crap im sick of it...doing a dirt marathon, just completed the first dirt, which seems to be the best since it didnt has gfwl.
now trying to play dirt 2, changing my email, and password and it still refuses my account datas even tho i can log in into the official site that brought my right from dirt 2 to my chrome.
xbox live is okay but this is true fuck, only pro are the achievements ... but i didnt buy the game for those achievements ...
