I had an old game-- did I automatically lose my save with the update?
If you mean BS2, you likely did. A friend had it happen to him. Lost his saves and all his achievements too. Since GFWL handled the saves, with it stripped out, then your saves are gone too. Or at least that's the impression I got. I have no idea if GFWL saved anything locally or if you'd be able to salvage anything from them, but my friend lost it all anyway.
Crimson night & Celsion moon, misfiction, not save the Player is Prayer, yes, Dance Romanesque and unfinished Romancia.
LMAO, just came back from the Steam forums and I'm having a laugh. Once the initial GFWL bashing by Steam fanboys subsided, everyone's now complaining about constant sound stutters and crashes on DX10 mode, while my retail GFWL version still functions like a charm.
I emailed Nordic to see if I could get a response about Red Faction Guerrilla.
Also Contacted EA support about Bulletstorm and as told that it would be patched to work without GFWL but they weren't sure how it would work for Steam since it's a competitor to Origin and the guy was just EA support. I assume they would patch it and just distributed it to Steam since they have some kind of agreement hence they still sell it on Steam. But I won't hold my breath.
I'll try to reach out to Capcom about SF X T later.
