Maybe use steam next time instead of the *barf* GfWL. It limits you to 1 signin at a time, unlimited installs. It has ability to not unlock the game until a particular release day/time, etc.

While Steam VS GFWL isn't really the issue here, it does amaze me how people support Steam DRM. The biggest issues is that Steam requires periodical sign-ins, even in "offline" mode. Whereas GFWL never requires you to be online, and even allows you to create and play on offline accounts that require no user data or tracking.
For some reason I remember there was a game that REQUIRED a online profile in GFW.

But for one to say GFWL is better than steam seriously needs their head checked. I have NEVER had any issue with Steam, ever!

Even in offline mode. And that shit about periodic check ins? Friend of mine has a mackbook with windows installed. My Steam account was logged in offline mode fro nearly 8 months. It was only removed when steam stuff started coming out on mac and he got his own account.

Seriously. Read up on the bullshit that is Fallout 3. Read up on the fact if you have family members playing Live on 360 the PC version gets booted (and vice versa).
