    My understanding is that you can install the games then uninstall GFWL or just not play them online.

    Either way, just the single player alone for Dawn of War, Metro, and Red Faction is worth the price.

    Why the hate for GFWL? I mean, why the hate up to the level of not buying them? Wait, you were going to buy them? :p

    It sounds like more of an issue being able to play. Not just not wanting to.

    If you create an account with a fake address you can play just fine.

    If you read Sahara mafua thread about Dirt2 issues with GFWL you will know what I mean. He can't log in and therefore can't play online or save progress unless he make an offline profile.

    so what doesn't he make an offline profile? It takes like 10 seconds to do so.

    That's what he did at last , this fixed the single player aspect but how would he play multiplayer online if he can't log into GFWL !

    That's why he should have first created a fake account with an address in a country near him where GFWL is officially supported...

    When does the Steam sale end? It says the 4th, but does this mean there will be an update on the 4th (carrying out till the 5th) or the next refresh on Saturday will be the last one?
