Operation Anchorage GFW Woes

YouGamers and Rock, Paper, Shotgun each have stories outlining problems with the PC edition of the Operation Anchorage DLC for Fallout 3 and the Games for Windows service. YouGamers reports that the DLC is not available in some localities, while users who have imported Fallout 3 are finding the DLC will only install in the default language of the country they imported the game from, even if it has been installed with another language. Meanwhile, Rock, Paper, Shotgun outlines their difficulties obtaining the DLC from Games for Windows in what can best be described as a bit of a circus, though some of the related forum comments may prove helpful to those suffering some of the same problems. On a semi-related note, GameCyte follows up on the news that Chris Early was fired by Microsoft with word that the Games for Windows program will continue under the leadership of Ron Pessner, formerly of Microsoft's Connected TV division, while Microsoft Game Studios veteran David Luehmann is now in charge of internal development and publishing of all Windows-based games.

Fallout 3 was barely functional at release and extremely buggy, why would people expect anything different from the DLC?
