Default New GfWL... with MS Gamepoints

http://www.pcgameshardware.com/aid,6...able/Download/

MS is now trying to make PC gamers same lame cash cows like Xbox users and want you to pay for DLCs and extra content with their Microsoft Points. Fu** them.


Games for Windows Live must FAIL!

Honestly I'd very much like GfWl to succeed as that would bring microsoft's attention to PC gaming once again, while helping keep piracy to a minimum.

Just because one is available doesn't mean you have to buy it.

I just want microsoft to acknowledge the PC gaming community more than they do right now and if DLC is the way to do that then fine by me. I've been using my xbox360 for a long time already and have yet to pay for anything(other than xbox live gold that is which I only had for half a year).

PC gaming is dead. While I'm pretty much a 100% PC gamer. I can count on one hand how many good games have been released in the past two years. And then all these supposively "good games" that are always suppose to be the best thing since sliced bread, all end up in utter disappointments.

Best games I've played in the past 2 years is Left 4 Dead and Team Fortress 2 (before all the ridiculous overpowered patches). Thats basically it. Any games I play these days are games that are like 4+ years old.

Have you tried Anno 1404 yet? Playing it right now and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. Trine was also a damn fine title, if you've got the time and $.

What are the great console exclusive games then that no PC gamer is getting to play?

from that list PGR4 is decent, Forza tries to be a simulator but fails. Gran Turismo, not sure about the yet to be released version, but the 2,3,4 are filled with content but none of it executed well.

To rephrase: consoles have some great exclusives, that's why I own the damn things (PS3 has more, compared to PC).

My point is that there are not games on consoles that are much greater in quality than the average PC game... if you think PC games have been lame for years, then you probably just dislike most games coming out period.
