Games for Windows Live (and how to fall flat on your face at launch)

Posted on Tuesday, June 12 2007 @ 03:31:34 CEST by

Microsoft have now officially launched their Games for Windows Live, so naturally we've taken a close look at it. Hell's teeth - what on Earth were Microsoft thinking!?

"On the PC, Live is only a half-assed attempt to desperately fulfill what Microsoft promoted at E3 in 2006 - the perfect world of easy cross-platform gaming.
