Wait, did G4WL just basically bork every game that uses it?

Every G4WL game I have on steam crashes instantly. Setting compatibility to Vista SP2 manages to get to the menus, but with broken results.
So, basically, they took down G4WL, and now every game that ever used it is completely broken if you bought the game.

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

Yeah July 1 2014 is when the service is completely gone. The store is already shut down afaik though. I hope all the GFWL games are patched by then. Its why I have so much more faith in steam and prefer to purchase things solely on steam. This scenario can happen with any of the new platforms and even steam itself, but steam is the least likely to 'fail'.

Apparently, it's just that some windows service decided to break sometime recently. :/ Probably last time I did a system restore.

gfwl has a habbit of breaking randomly which was one of the reasons people did not like it. For most of the games there are ways to remove it though ie fallout new vegas if you have fose installed then it gfwl doenst launch at all and you just go straight to the game. I assume that something similar or just straight cracking it would fix it.

Unfortunately, it's not just G4WL that's broken. It's a component of Windows G4WL relies on, and it's completely hooped. System restore didn't fix it, reinstalling didn't fix it, uninstalling and reinstalling everything loosely associated with it didn't fix it. Probably would require a new install of windows to fix.

Yay broken Microsoft DRM.
