    I'd assume that it's not really a profitable venture for them. Which isn't too surprising given how negatively most people view it and how does basically nothing that isn't done better by other platforms like Steam or even Origin.

    And yeah, AoEO is getting shut down after they put it in maintenance mode last year (or the year before, I forget). They really fucked up the monetization of the game and delivered kinda a half-assed product. I enjoyed it while I played, but it was really obvious that it wasn't fully thought out : /

    If they don't patch it so it works without GFWL after GFWL have shut down i would just crack my copy to be honest if i bought it retail, games not being playable is a non issue at this point if it do not get patched by using the internet, but multiplayer is what goes away for good probably.

    We really need a good real-time RTS with a capital building slowly and getting upgrades; and side missions to get resources and loot... WTB good AoEO-like game

    That is what sucks tho because I do want to play some GOW online on my pc lol even more so since I can run it a hell of a lot better then my original PC I had it on.

    Had to deal with GWFL support today just to get a new key since clearly I have installed the game tomany times and it wouldn't let me use my original key LOL.

    When I played it Arkham City only gave achievements in Steam and not GFWL, but Arkham Asylum on the other hand awarded them on GFWL and not Steam. So now I need to play back through it again to get the achievements since I could never get to register on Steam.

    Microsoft seems to be making some very weird decisions lately.. windows 8, xbox one, windows live what's spurred the drastic change in development? 0o
    AoE Online I think has been mentioned for shutdown since January or maybe during the summer, can't remember. I think it has something to do with not enough people to warrant the resources.

    I enjoyed the AoE series, well 2nd and Mythology, 3rd one is kind of meh imo, but the online one I thought just sucked so I stopped playing it after a couple weeks.

    I dont think thats its not profitable as it was never ment to be. It was a merger of xbox live into the windows platform using Vista. Halo 2 and gears of war pc and i think supreme commander were some of the first games to use this service. Id put money on it being shutdown as with the new console coming out they have a better system, not riddled with legacy vista code that they will use to reintergrate windows and xbox live.

    I could not find a post about it but so many games such as batman, street fighter, fable and many more all use GFWL even the steam versions.

    Nothing more to say really other that oh hell and discuss.
    You know the rules, link or you stink!

    But hopefully it's true...It was one of the main reasons I couldn't play GTA IV for a year on PC.

    AKA, they can't sell an RTS on the Xbox, their platform of choice.

    Microsoft's Passive-agressive two-faced attitude towards PC gamers is one of the main reasons Steam is as popular as it is now.

    Agreed. I've played both and can't wait for the new one. I'm just stuck deciding buying it new and maybe get the preorder bonus material or give it a year or so and get the GotY edition with all the additional goodies.

    Lol, he did have a link, if you clicked the word "this", granted it was real small to see and easy to miss.

    Yep I'm in the same boat even more so if they come out with DLC that was as good as the Harely DLC in AC.

    I personally liked the Harely DLC but I heard many didn't.

    I'm pretty sure it was ment to be profitable from the beginning, what with trying to integrate Xbox Gold payment system into it and whatnot.

    Sorry if it has been mentioned already, but I am a little uncertain since the Batman games still mention that you need GFWL.

    If i buy the 2 Batman games on Steam Weekend Sale right now will they come with GFWL?

    They won't. You're getting the new-and-improced SteamWorks versions. I had the old ones, the new ones appeared automagically yesterday.

    They don't contain GFWL anymore. I think it was removed right before it went on sale and since it was removed Steam is offering a sale on both. If you get it you only deal with the Steam DRM as usual.
