A previous poster told me I could have a different opinion w/o insulting those who disagree with me. That is a good point but how about you guys take your own advice eh?
If you disagree with me and think this whole gfwl thing is so God awful then simply make a choice and don't buy the game. There is no need for you to insult the devs by creating a childish petition and in that same process add to the stigma of PC gamers being elitists.
I just think devs now days have to feel like they can't win with our crowd. A small minority of PC gamers whine over each and every little thing a gaming company does. They of course do it very vocally and it's damn near impossible not to hear the screams.
Honestly I can say that in a way I hope they decide to put a middle finger up to all of you and simply scrap the game. Yeah it would suck to not have a great game come to the PC but you know what? I think it'd be a small price to pay if it taught some of you guys a lesson. Maybe if we lose one good PC game b/c of the cries of a few, others in the future will keep their mouth shut and the PC just may become the dominant platform of choice.
"Release Dark Souls PC Edition without Games for Windows Live
I just signed the following petition addressed to: Namco-Bandai and From Software.
Release Dark Souls PC Edition without Games for Windows Live
GFWL is unpopular, difficult to use, inconvenient, has terrible online support (a key feature in Dark Souls), and is downright unpleasant. After anxiously awaiting a PC release for this fantastic game it feels like a real slap in the face hearing Dark Souls will use Games for Windows Live. We recommend Valve's Steamworks in place, as this DRM is much easier to use, less intrusive, more reliable, and more accepted among PC gamers. Please reconsider the use of GFWL, or offer the game on both services. Thank you for taking the effort to port this game, but for a lot of customers it's Steam or no sale.
Look at that blasting. How disgraceful.
