i don't know why i bother reading these kinds of threads or news.
imho i see nothing wrong with gfwl

It's like you can't stand that someone thinks differently than you. I don't want GFWL either. If you're okay with it, fine. But a lot of people aren't, so don't get mad when they speak up and make their voices heard.

Petition signed, by the way.

Ridiculous petition by a bunch of babies, imo. Who cares what version of bloatware is being used. Steam, Origin, GFWL, etc can all sod-off as far as im concerned.

I hate all of them too, but the difference is Steam doesn't cause me issues like GFWL. The last time I used it, I couldn't even login after resetting my password. I've never failed to login to Steam, even after changing passwords. Granted it's given me a hard time with HL2 before, but that's about it.

Its unnecessary, you start your game, have to log into GFWL, then you get 40 pop ups and slide bars telling you all sorts of junk, then you get into the game and dont even use it...

What popups?

GFWL isnt THAT bad i have a couple of games that use it and i do not see any pop ups, (appart from the login), and it logs me in automatically with the option ticked off.

Why everyone so nuts over this?

I honestly don't give a dang if it's released on GFWL or Origin. But Namco will get better sales on Steam, just as Alan Wake did.

You're not seeing the bigger picture... pm me if you want me to explain, so I won't have to spam and get warned for posting common sense...

Signed. Yes, I have played games on Steam that also have GFWL. But, it was an inconvenience. Please wait, downloading update. please restart game. please download another update.

All I wanted from the start was steam integration, not GFWL integration with a steam overlay.

I don't think the game will be distributed exclusively via GFWL. It'll use it, but I seriously doubt Namco would pass up releasing it on Steam.

THANK YOU!

I agree 100% with this.

Cry because a great game isn't on your system of choice so you basically all form a petition that equates to a child holding his breath until he gets what he wants. Then they actually give into your demands yet all b/c it has one little thing you don't like you're once again back to holding your breath like a little child.

I MUCH prefer PC gaming over console gaming any day but I can honestly say if I was a dev there is no way in hell I'd release a thing on the PC. It's simply not worth it. Half of the people will pirate it, the other half will tell the world how I deserve to die all b/c the fov isn't what they prefer and a smaller part of that group will make it their lifes work to let everyone know how fail I am as a dev b/c I chose not to use Steam.

Yeah, no doubt. But look at the number of people who signed the petition.
