DIRT 3 Leaving GFWL in the Dirt

Codemasters confirms via Twitter that DIRT 3 is another game that will transition to Steamworks for multiplayer support with the unlamented death of Games for Windows LIVE (thanks PC Gamer). This may not get the green flag until next year, however, as they say: "We are working on it but it may not be until the new year."

You don't have to log into GFWL to play. It doesn't really detract from the experience at all--just don't use it. Guerrilla was a fantastic game. I wish the sequel didn't reportedly suck so bad (I never played it because of that). I had so much fun with RF:G.

You don't have to? Well, that's good news then.

Armageddon isn't a bad game, it's quite enjoyable in parts, to be honest, but it isn't what people wanted. We wanted an expanded and more awesome-ified Guerilla, and instead we got Red Faction:Dead Space. Fucking publishers.

It's worth picking up for 5 bucks, as it's definitely enjoyable the first time through. (It also has probably the coolest missile/rocket launcher of all time.)

Also, note to all publishers: Since MS is just going to transition this into Xbox Live and smear that shit all over the PC as well, STAY FAR THE FUCK AWAY FROM MICROSOFT'S WORTHLESS Live SHIT!

GFMFWL!

Also, good on codemasters. Now give capcom a call - I think they need help with the transition.


Damn nin, your all over the first post this Moring.
