In a glorious kick in the balls to Games for Windows Live, this morning we were rejoicing to the news that the new Batman: Arkham City will NOT be using the bloated mess.
It is possible it will still use Steamworks, but that is not confirmed yet.
However, Games for Windows Live has been disaster after disaster, relaunch after relaunch. It’s failed, developers are abandoning it and really, the world would be a much nicer place if it just went away.
Not that it will. But it will always be the kid who came to the party too late, when there was absolutely no booze left and everyone was face down in pools of their own sick.
Timing is everything.
