Op Ed

Ars Technica - Games for Windows Live is a broken mess and I hate it.
Microsoft wants to be a part of my living room, and they are. But if the company also wants to butt into my PC gaming and require this login, it needs to find a way to allow me to use my account on different devices at the same time. Heck, if you spend the money on two Xbox 360 systems, you can't use the same account on both; you have to move it with a USB stick or recover the account whenever you move between systems. I understand that if you want to play on both systems online at the same time, Microsoft wants you to have two accounts, but if I want to have two systems in different rooms they don't want me to switch back and forth in a convenient fashion? Really lame.

Blue emailed me a code for the AoE Online beta (probably because I've posted in every thread so far saying I DON'T want one ), and I gave it to my son, who is now 18. He tried to log into GFWL, but it says he needs "Parental Permission", even though he is 18 and the game is rated "Teen" by the ESRB. So I tried to log in as his parent and it said my credentials are incorrect. My son got frustrated and told me to forget it; it just wasn't worth the trouble.

The author is correct - GFWL is a broken mess.

Yep, that sounds pretty much like gfwl alright. There's an article in PC Gamer with Kevin Unangst, and how they're "putting all this stuff in that developers want!" and how they're "going to be solid competition to Steam!"

Not a single fucking peep on the horrendous idiocy their horseshit client forces gamers to go through, such as the example above.

/still can't log in to Batman's GFWL.
//FUCK YOU KEVIN FUCKING UNANGST.
