Be sure to download the latest release of Live for Windows, 1.2 from december 11th. You can it here. Also be sure to have the latest Visual C++ redistributables, it fixed all of my Games for Windows Live problems.

uhhh....noob question.... but... I was going to buy this game when I came across this thread. My question is, do I need to download Live for Windows and all the visual C++ updates if I only intend to play in offline mode, singleplayer ??
