The catch is that the first three games SF IV and DoW II are tied to Games for Windows Live, so it's likely possible that they'll be unplayable without cracks after July 1, 2014.
 
None of these have keys that can be used on Steam Dawn of War II's keys can (read: must) be used with Steam. The others can't.

Oh wow, could someone please get a couple of those Bionic Commando games for me? I have it on Steam but this includes a couple of patches and I collect stuff like that. There aren't any in stock in any store near me. :(

Bionic Commando shouldn't be GFWL.  I didn't hear that they were shutting down next year, good to know, thanks.

There is no confirmation that they are shutting down GFWL next July.  Stop spreading rumors!

 

AoE Online is shutting down July 1, 2014.  Nothing else has been stated..


Once as a kid I cried as my parents drove from ny to nj. That was a far cry.

With all of the companies starting to switch games off of the service, it is still highly likely to be happening, regardless of what has been officially stated.

Wow the only game on that list that I really want is Warhammer 40K:Dawn of War 2 and there are no gamestops anywhere here that have it. That is a crazy good price for a game I have been wanting to play for a long time now.

Does anyone have a copy of Lemony Snicket they don't want?

 

My store is bare of most old stuff.

Wow I didn't know GFWL is dying lame. I just bought Bioshock 1 and 2 both are GFWL... LAME!! Man talk about the industry really dropping the ball, I go out to buy the game legitimately now I won't be able to play it anymore. Yet someone who pirated it and didn't pay for it can play it forever.

Bioshock 2 has had GFWL removed from it on Steam.

Dawn of War II has GFWL, but it also has Steamworks. It'll register on Steam just fine.

 

Since it's required and all.

Bioshock 1 was just a games for windows title not GFWL like Bioshock 2.  Funny thing is Bioshock 1 has great controller support, while Bioshock 2 has no controller support.

Not anymore. Full controller support was patched into Bioshock 2 when GFWL and SecuROM were patched out.

It looks like GameStop sold it online only.

 

Fixed a bunch of stuff in the OP.

Please chime in with your thoughts about this... I was thinking about GFWL and I do know we can use offline log-in. I was using offline log-in for Arkham City because it got caught in an endless update loop. Do you think that'll mean the games will still be playable offline after July 1st? Or is there online DRM that'll just make the games unplayable?

 

Also I have the Bionic Commando disc but what patch is everyone talking about? Does it make the game better or add content?

Its a physical patch. A pre order bonus. Like a patch to put on your clothes.

It's a patch with the old Bionic Commando logo. It goes in jackets. It's super nifty.

 

And there's that debug mode patch for the game but that's not important.

You know, that's a great question.

 

I'm curious what'll happen w/ the G4WL in-game tab, once it shuts down. Will the game even work offline? Will the game even boot? Or what?

 

I really think dev's and pub's should take it upon themselves to patch G4WL component out of their games and any sort of online-activation DRM, if their game used any. 

 

Anybody who wants to install a G4WL-game after it's shut-down, especially on games using Microsoft's Server Side Authentication - this would be a complete problem and disaster.

 

Also, if a game used G4WL for saved-games - dev's/pub's or Microsoft really should fix that problem, too. Microsoft honestly should put out a tool that strips the G4WL crap from saves. The saved-games thing has been a problem for gamers w/ Batman: AA/AC & Bioshock 2. Gamers have had to mod and screw w/ the files quite a bit, just to try to get saves working on the G4WL-to-Steamworks transition.

 

For something as hardcore and as brutal as Dark Souls, I could see gamers going crazy if their characters get rendered useless b/c of G4WL handles saves (encrypting them) - especially if they've spend tons of hours w/ that character or if they finally beat a boss that was driving them bananas.

I tried to search for the work steam for the ones I'm interested in but they didn't appear... Are they all only for windows live?

Does this work for the filler trade 2?

No.  The rest are PC games.  PC games aren't either Steam or GFWL.  Shockingly, there are games that don't use a service like those!

I had completely forgotten that new games aren't really "new" at GS. Went to pick up Bionic Commando and SFIV and they both look like they've been through the mill. Not sure why anybody buys anything from there at full price smh.
