    Did it I have the same game from when I originally bought it, just now when I load it the GFWL features are gone. Wondering if it's a bug in that some have 2 and should have 1 or the other way around.

    In a way it's good news that it's shutting down. Having to go through two different gating systems just to play a game was ludicrous...possibly the only downside to this happening is that some developers may not patch their games and so they will become un-usable...I'm guessing gta4 for example and rockstar will probably be one of them because of their past history of trolling pc users.
    A smart man puts his money on the horse with the best odds...a wise man doesn't waste his money gambling on an outcome he has no control over.

    Question is, will I be able to play BioShock 1 and 2? I regularly go back and replay both once a year or so.

    If they get patched to steam then you will be able to play both Mulitiplayer and Single Player.

    If they do not get patched you will be forced to make a Offline Profile to play single player.

    I know that Bioshock 2 has been updated. I didn't think that the first Bioshock even required GFWL but I could just be remembering wrong.

    You're correct. No GFWL on the Steam version of the first Bioshock.

    only game I'm concerned about is Dark Souls. I mean it was a half assed port that used GFWL for the online since its similar to xbox live. I'm wondering if the developer will even take the time to get it working with steamworks.

    It's hard to say how Microsoft will handle it, but if there throwing in the towel they might hand things over to Steam for some of the games servers at the least. I know Company of Hero's (1) recently got a version that runs over Steams servers, prior to that I think it was on (the now defunct) Gamespy. I'd advise you not hold your breath for new CD keys for anything bought on there store though.

    Even tho its Microsoft that runs the show for GFWL its up to said game company of each game to patch them or not.

    So some popluar games like Batman/GTA/Bioshock may get the patch but sadly I feel other games won't.

    Considering how Retribution makes the other two obsolete, I doubt those will be updated.

    Little things on the PC are as great as having to create accounts on the internet in order to play single player games, and it's even more awesome when you need to create 2 or more accounts on the internet for the same fucking game because it has multiple services by different providers and/or copy protection.

    My guess is that they will get patched to work with steam.

    I got a digital copy of RE5 though gamestop and it use's GFWL good chance they will be patched and added to your steam since its a popluar game but some games will get ignored sadly.

    I really do hope my Gears Of War gets ported to steam also just for fucken giggles and grins and why I hate Micosoft/GFWL. I requested a new key since mine won't let me play online anymore due to tomany installs and here is the first part.

    That was all well and fine I provided said pic and they sent it up for a redeem key token then I got.....

    Dear Joseph,

    My name is Carl with the Xbox Customer Care Advocacy Team. I'm sorry to hear that you are having a trouble with a GFWL token and, in order to help you resolve this issue, I will need a little more information.

    In order to assist you further with this issue, please reply to this email with the following attached ( not embedded ):

    · A scan or legible picture of the entire itemized Proof of Purchase (Receipt) showing purchase.

    I apologize if this request seems unwarranted, but it is necessary in order for me to provide a resolution to your issue.

    Sincerely,
    You got to be fucken kidding me right they want a recept for a game that came out in 2007????????? To be fair I got it in 2010 or 2011 but even if I had the recept good chance the link has wore off like a lot of my gamestop recepts have and even more so who keeps recepts for PC games.

    It was not made clear there is a limited amount of times u can install GFWL games and I personally feel they are trying to get out of giving me a new code. I resent the pic that I provided for the first one and I told them how I felt and I am wanting for a reply back.

    I am happy as hell that GFWL is dying off and I really hope Micsoft stays out of PC gaming unless its done with steam.
