I bought red faction Guerrilla from steam for like a quarter, and it was all fine and dandy until I encountered this amazing software known as "games for windows live."
Not only is it the dumbest name for anything its like new super mario brothers wii, but never mind that. I was about to start the single player game when suddendly this message popped up saying "IF YOU WANT ACHIEVEMENTS SIGN IN HERE PLZ!".
And let me get this straight I could not care less about xbox live achievements believe me I do enough of that in world of warcraft so dont come pestering me with your ridiculous gameplay lenghtening schemes microsoft and whoever else was involved in this retarded process.
HOWEVER! it also said "by the way if you for some reason want to save your game you need to sign up aswell" which is when I throw my mouse into the god damn wall and start punching babies. Why? why do you do this to me microsoft? why torment me with your terrible software, I have been exposed to way too much of your "innovative software solutions" like microsoft access, the millenium OS, IE 7 (heck all the IE's are shit), word and Microsoft 3.0. WE ARE GIVING YOU OUR MONEY BUT YOU STILL WANT TO BOTHER US WITH THIS NONSENSE WHY?!
But I am getting off on a tangent, lets focus. Ok so I said to myself F it I paid a quarter for this game there is no way in hell microsoft is going to keep me from playing it. so I started not only is it baffling besides the fact that I bought it off steam I have to enter a fucking Cd key, that being said valve once again has shown their brilliant genius and made this process helpful by displaying the code in the corner of the screen. so I did that and then of course it needs to be updated and by that they mean installed on my computer, great more crap on my hard drive thanks alot guys really appreciate it. However microsoft has somehow managed to fuck this ridiculously simple old as mud practice up in an extraordinary fashion. I am currently stuck at 99% on the download bar thingie which it has been for 2 hours and under it, it says.
"Dude do not turn of your computer or anything dumb like that seriously wtf man." 2 hours. 2 HOURS and yes my internet connection is working no firewalls or any bs like that its perfectly fine, 2 HOURS I COULD LEARN HOW TO PLAY CHESS I COULD LEARN LATIN OR JUMP OFF A FUCKING BRIDGE! I wonder if I get a achievement for it.
Now to the point, I guess there really werent one just incredibly pissed off and I wanted to make everyone elses day as bad as mine and come with a warning whatever you do, do not, under any circumstances ever. download games for windows live, no matter what where how or why, dont. do. it. Trust me.
