Let us take a moment to mourn the passing of a service few liked, and nobody wanted. A service that filled some with dread at the mere mention of its name, and elicited sighs from those anticipating titles confirmed to have it.
I am, of course, referring to:
Yes, Games for Windows Live is going the way of the dodo
in August 2014. The G4WL Marketplace will close in August 2013
.The casualty list:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Games_for_Windows_–_Live_titlesBut it's not all doom and gloom:
Titles confirmed to have patches incoming that will remove the G4WL integration from them:
Street Fighter IVDark Souls
patch news faked, probably dead
Batman: Arkham Asylum
Let's discuss this service, the games which will be affected by its closure, and how Microsoft may proceed in future after this move.
And to, obviously, give this service its proper send-off.
