BioShock 2, Batman: Arkham Aslyum/City, and now Capcom's PC lineup -- yep, Games for Windows Live is on the way out. The company has confirmed that the Microsoft service will be removed. It seemed inevitable, but there we go.

"As GFWL will be closing down, the client will be removed from games and you will still be able to play your games," said a Capcom support rep. "Unfortunately we do not have any details yet of how this will be done and when."

Another representative noted that "We are still not 100% what is going to happen regarding the winding-down of Games For Windows Live. It should be possible to keep playing and saving until the end of Games For Windows Live - please keep checking regularly on www.capcom-unity.com for news as we progress."

Some of the titles that will be impacted by this include Dead Rising 2, Lost Planet, Resident Evil 5, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, and Street Fighter X Tekken. Here's hoping for a smooth transition. Better get those achievements while you can!

Bandai Namco officially announces Project X Zone 2

Back in 2013, Capcom, Bandai Namco, and Sega teamed up to give us a healthy serving of fanservice in the form of Project X Zone for the 3DS. Our own Kyle MacGregor called it a "love letter from Japan," and I think that'...more
