As we bid farewell to the Games For Windows Live service, like we would an unwelcome and bossy relative that you feel compelled to put up with, Codemasters has taken the step of removing the GFWL client from its racing title DiRT 3. Just like BioShock 2 and the first two Batman: Arkham games in the past few week, DiRT 3 will now support Steamworks instead of Microsoft's much maligned service

Whilst I'll be the first to admit that I had minimal problems with GFWL, it left me wondering what other PC games still require it. Capcom has already announced that it is looking to remove the GFWL client from its games but there's still a few older titles that have it bundled in.

Fallout 3 is one I'd love to have an excuse to play again. GTA IV and Dark Souls are the other two games still saddled with GFWL but both have online components that might make removing GFWL a bit harder.

Review: Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection

The Hyperdimension Neptunia series is a polarizing one. Some find Compile Heart’s thinly-veiled parodies of the game industry engaging and painfully adorable, and flock to it for an abundance of fanservice. Others run f...more

Review: Mighty Gunvolt

Inti Creates is just full of surprises. First, we had the announcement of a brand new Mega Man-like project that absolutely exploded on Kickstarter. Then we got word that Azure Striker Gunvolt was in production, and was ...more

Review: Azure Striker Gunvolt

If Capcom ever decides that they're done with Mega Man, someone will carry the torch. Whether it's tireless fan creators or the father of the Blue Bomber himself, the Mega Man community is one of the most passionate coll...more
