DIRT 3 Leaving GFWL in the Dirt

Codemasters confirms via Twitter that DIRT 3 is another game that will transition to Steamworks for multiplayer support with the unlamented death of Games for Windows LIVE (thanks PC Gamer). This may not get the green flag until next year, however, as they say: "We are working on it but it may not be until the new year."

I want DR2:OTR fixed, dammit!


To say that it should be fixed implies that it's broken somehow and nothing could further from the truth. GFWL work perfectly in both DR2 & DR2:OTR, there are 50 achievements in each game and I have 35 achievements in each. Trust me, it works. Wink

death of Games for Windows LIVE

uh huh.. Nice

You've obviously never tried moving your GFWL saves from one PC to another. GFWL brilliantly links your saves to your GFWL account and encrypts them with a unique key that's regenerated whenever you install GFWL. So, even if you manage to find and copy your saves over, they won't work with the new installation of GFWL. It's great stuff, really.

And on top of that, GFWL is bloated, slow and unintuitive. Why do I need to use an online profile to buy and play DLC? Why do I have to login to GFWL every time I launch a game? Why is my GFWL account the same as my Windows Live account, which is notorious for becoming inaccessible whenever MS randomly resets your password?

I find it remarkable that you constantly criticize Steam yet praise GFWL. At least be consistent.
