Does Games for Windows Live run on Windows 10?  I'm actually not being snarky, and before anyone chimes in with it didn't run on Windows 7 or 8, yeah, yeah, I know it's a piece of shit.  I have a bunch of games in my backlog that still require Games for Windows Live and there is a greater than 0% possibility that I might actually play one or more of them.

 

So this question goes out to anyone that updated to Windows 10 that had GFWL installed prior to the update.  Are games that require it still working?

 

Thanks!

No clue. I haven't upgraded to Win 10 yet.

I ain't looked into getting G4WL working on Win 10.

I'd love to hear if anyone got G4WL going on Win 10, also.

 

I did get G4WL working on Win 8 - but even on W8, it was a royal pain-in-the-butt to get G4WL going so I could run FO3.

Thanks, I guess I will finally have to install u-play on my computer then.  

Even if you get it on Steam it still requires Uplay and launches through it anyway so either way yep, you'll have to install Uplay.

So Nuuvem doesnt give steam keys?  Instead you have to install something?

Never bought anything from them.  I go to "My Games" and it doesnt give me a key or anything.

 

Only a button that says "Activate Game on Steam" which tells me how to install steam.

They might have temporarily ran out of keys. I'd wait a few days for them to restock, and if that doesn't happen contact them

The Witcher 3 Patch 1.08 is out on both GoG + Steam.

 

Steam-Version Patched to 1.08 confirmed by JohnHarker, a few posts down.

 

Well, it's out at least on GOG right now.

 

I don't know if it's out for Steam-version owners yet - but y'all might wanna hop on Steam & see if updates (or not) to see if it's out on Steam yet (or not).

Hopefully, it's there already for y'all.

Must have, the Reddit post also has tons of people talking about receiving no keys for them as well (XIII, XIII-2, VIII, etc.)

I just loaded up Fallout 3 and Halo 2 on Windows 10 and both were able to log me into GFWL.

Bleh. Let us know if any of your keys come in soon. Hopefully, they do.

 

I still ain't decided if I'm gonna jump on FF8 & 13-2, since I can see those here for sale in the USA. We'll see.

I'd for sure have jumped on 13-2, if I actually did finish 13-1 - but, I haven't finished 13-1.

Nuuvem here does give me major incentive to work on 13-1, though.

I should get back to 13-1.

I'm not really familiar with the whole CS:Go and TF2 key trading business, but I have to admit, it's intriguing.

13-2 is really good.  It's actually the last FF game I beat (tho it was on PS3 and about 3 years ago).

 

I'm actually gonna chance it and buy it for PC from Nuuvem even tho I wont get a key right away ;D

 

Lowest prices on these games I have seen lately, if not ever.

 

I'll update if anything comes through.

Yeah, definitely looks like the best prices I've seen or close to it on the FF games so far, for sure.

 

Some ITAD for comparisons of prices:

FF3 -> http://isthereanydea...croll:#gamelist

FF4 -> http://isthereanydea...=finalfantasyiv

FF7 -> http://isthereanydea...finalfantasyvii

FF8 -> http://isthereanydea...inalfantasyviii

FF13-1 -> http://isthereanydea...inalfantasyxiii

FF13-2 -> http://isthereanydea...alfantasyxiiiii

 

EDIT:

Sigh, figures they'd block Mexico out of most of the deals. I can only see 8, 13 and 13-2.

 

The discounts suck, though. :p

Discounts might not be that hot - but also keep in mind, the MSRP for these are much lower in Brazil.

And God knows how often Square's going to put FF games at these prices.

I doubt well-known digital stores' sales + prices (like Steam, Amazon, etc) will be anywhere as good as these.

 

Only things we got to really worry about is...

1. Is Nuuvem gonna have better FF deals anytime soon?

I don't know, on this one.

2. Or, worse yet - is there going to be a huge FF Humble Bundle soon?

I'd doubt that one. And if they did - who knows how pricey the tiers will or will not be.

I started re-playing Metro 2033 (Redux this time, natch) the other day and, man, that is one oddly/poorly paced game.  I think it stands out more this time because I've read (ok, listened) to the (audio)book since the first time I played so it's very obvious where they're making chapter breaks.  Except those breaks are completely unneeded in the game and just serve to pause you every couple of minutes, especially in the beginning where there isn't much actual "game play" going on.  Maybe I'll keep going and see if it gets better paced further in when you're actually doing more.

 

The audiobook version from Audible is great, by the way, assuming you like the style.  Excellently narrated and atmospheric, genuinely creepy at times even in broad daylight in my car.  It does have the Russian literature thing going on of the story kind of moving at a steady pace until it's over.  Not much build up or climax at the ending, it just goes along until there's no story left.

That's because you have something else going on.  Don't want to know.
