I don't see many good games on that list though, just 4 to be exact

Fallout 3 / Dirt 2 , DOW2 and Batman.

So yeah, can't really say its riddling a lot of good games, that shitware

(I didn't much like GTA IV as you can gather, to use mods you have to rid it of Live anyway)

You're entitled to your opinion, even if it's wrong. :p

GTA4, DoW2, Section 8 (twice), SF4, Dirt 2, FO3, Batman, RF:Guerilla, Dead Rising 2 and Battlestations:Pacific are all excellent games in my book.

Is that post massively delayed? Halo 2?

Seriously - the fact Microsoft are trying to tell us that HALO 2 is one of the most popular games on the PC say's it all for their perspective.

good to see Section 8 IP getting at least some action. As a multiplayer game its quite underrated.

I agree it is very underrated. Loving Section 8:Prejudice atm even with GFW. It was well worth my $15. Much prefer it over Brink.

Yeah, I after reading the mini-review the guy who draws Ctrl-alt-del did on Brink, I'm pretty chuffed that I picked up Section 8:Prejudice and ignored Brink. Having a bunch of fun, although some new maps wouldn't go astray sometime in the next month or two. ; )

No one listens to me. I said the game was crap from the get go and everyone attacked me. Guess the proof is in the puddin.


Yup, just like it was for Psychonauts and Planescape: Torment!

So I guess Microsoft has pretty much conceded to Valve in that they will never catch up to or make as good of a digital distro portal as Steam.

Seeing as Microsoft has a perfect opportunity to make Fable 3 a GFWL exclusive, yet they are putting Fable 3 on Steam (Microsoft's first on Steam). I don't even see Fable 3 being advertised on GFWL.


We aren't going to see anything until WGX is finished.

Yeah not much decent on that list. Some old games and derivative sequels. I doubt Microsoft will ever wake up to the fact that this entire market is being stolen under them and that the console industry is very fickle.

It has "Steam $5 sale" written all over it, and even then I'd feel dirty about installing the GFMFW client.

Resident Evil 5, Street Fighter IV, Bioshock 2....all good games.

And I've been saying Bulletstorm was juvenile crap since day one too.
