  3. GFWL question about games not patching into steamworks
2 years ago#1
I'm concerned that I won't be able to play Red Faction Guerrilla after they completely shut down GFWL. If the service being gone stops me from playing the game, would I just be able to get a crack? I mean Volition doesn't own the right (forgot who does) and I doubt they want to spend the money patching it.

And please don't mark this for moderation. I bought the game legally and am concerned about being able to play it in the future.

Who said it was going to stop working? Besides stupid people misquoting something that was removed from one page not related to it at all?

So did you read that? Apparently no one who keeps repeating it actually did.

Yes, the servers an online game uses being gone will affect it. How does this equate to suddenly every game with GFWL suddenly never working again?

If this deleted update is accurate, however, there is one big concern: presumably, any game currently using GFWL will need to patch it out and replace it with Steamworks or its own system to continue working after the 2014 shut off date.

That's hilariously stupid with absolutely no basis whatsoever, other than to confuse and frighten stupid people (which is working)

come on dude, no need to be a jerk and call people stupid. I read the whole thing

If this deleted update is accurate

that's the part that could be worrying. If it's accurate. MS has not come forward and said what will actually happen to games that won't receive a patch. The unknown is the problem
