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. The idea is good, but I guess it was announced
before anyone actually had implemented much of anything. In the rush to
get the great vision to the market along with the bumpy launch of Vista
in general, things went horribly wrong. The current implementation
should be burnt and the ashes scattered to four winds. It wouldn't
exactly impress even if it were completely free at this point, and
asking money for the current weak service offering is just misguided.
It's like someone is trying really hard to make Games for Windows Live
