39. Re: No GFWL for Batman: Arkham Origins - GFWL & AOE Online Ending Next Year? Aug 20, 2013, 10:10 LurkerLito
While I have no love or hate for GFWL, MS just shutting it off is a big problem. There are many games that use it as it's DRM, and many still use it as requirement before even letting you save your game. The Patch for these games should NOT come from the developer, it has to come from Microsoft. A final "patch" to GFWL that makes all "online" profiles "offline" and makes each program think it's online, that way when a game goes to check if you're online before it saves to your HD, it just gets the go ahead from the GFWL crap that still installed on the system. That way all the devs, especially the ones that are no longer in business, don't have to do a thing.

As a mainly offline gamer, I don't care about GFWL being shutdown, but as a gamer I am pretty dam concerned that I won't be able to play a number of games I bought because it needs GFWL to even function as a single player game.
